From lip-smacking local dishes to discounts on wine, there's something here for everyone
It’s not easy to be a foodie in these troubled times. The recent MCO has made it a little harder to order from one’s favourite restaurants. Fortunately, there are still a number of places one can get a great meal.
One of these is undoubtedly the Bangkung Row Kaki Lima Food Hall & Drive Thru in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. The brainchild of the Maxim Group, which comprises Cava Spanish Wine Bar, Opus Bistro, Lucky Bo and Leonardo’s Dining Room & Wine Loft, it offers a fine selection of high quality meals and produce. The Drive-Thru option means you can pick up your food with minimal contact, and maintain good social distancing.
Here are five reasons why you should pop by the Bangkung Row Kaki Lima Food Hall & Drive Thru. Remember to go on an empty stomach.
1. Delicious dishes to savour
There’s plenty to sate all cravings. Lovers of Malaysian flavours can get nasi lemak, beef char kway teow and Sarawak laksa. A weekly variety of pasta is available for an Italian meal.
And if you’re seeking something heartier, make a beeline for the Wagyu tomahawk, served from the Josper Grill. Served with roasted potato and sauteed vegetables, this prime cut of steak will not disappoint.
2. Quality food produce
Maybe you’re the kind who prefers a more hands-on approach with what you eat. In that case, head to the Food Hall where a superb selection of fresh fruits, fresh and frozen pastas, sauces, and freshly baked bread awaits. Use this fine produce to produce your own fine meals.
3. Treats for wine enthusiasts
Thirsty? There's coffee—and a selection of fine wines from their restaurants' wine lists. To sweeten the pot, there's a 15 per cent discount.

Can't quite make up your mind what to order? A selection of the food is also available for delivery via Beepit, so even if you can't commit to anything on the spot, you can always make your final decision later, in the comfort of your home.
