Don’t you find it nerve wracking when you get hyped about visiting a cafe, only to be disappointed by its subpar food?
Or do you feel scammed of your money when you stick a mouthful of pasta into your mouth and think to yourself, “Bro, I can cook better than this”?
With cafes popping across KL and PJ faster than mushrooms, it’s hard to tell which one actually serves good western food.
So to avoid that disappointment and save yourself more than 50% of what you would pay at an overhyped cafe, try out these western food places instead!
Steven’s Western Corner @ Starling Mall
It is located next to the famous Ah Keong Yong Tau Foo stall and is also a huge hit among the Malay community.
Steven serves a pretty affordable chicken chop below RM8 along with a serving of fries and coleslaw, though we can’t say whether that’s still the case given the recent inflation.
Among the two most ordered versions of the chicken chop are the Black Pepper Chicken Chop and the normal Chicken Chop which comes with a brown sauce which some find rather starchy.
If you are one that doesn’t mind dining under the hot Malaysian sun, Steven is a great place to visit for affordable prices and decent portions.
