Both of these franchises landed in Malaysia sometime during the pandemic lockdown, and i was so eager to try it back then. Unfortunately due to the crowds, i have to KIV until recently.
My first Jollibee was in IOI City mall (sometime last year). The second time, i tried it in Pavillion Bukit Jalil. I had 2-pieces 'chicken joy' combo which comes with mashed potato, coleslaw, a bun and drink. I had the spicy chicken which tastes very much like Texas chicken. One thing different is that a small tub of 'chicken sauce' is given together with the fried chicken. I don't think that is necessary coz the fried chicken is already flavorful. I use the sauce to dip with bun.
The outlet is located nearby/opposite Nanyang Cafe.
Below is my weekday lunch from the office cafeteria.
This is Malay-style curry noodles...which has egg in it. The gravy is thick with full santan aroma. RM6 for this bowl of noodles.
Now, back to Taco Bell....
I was excited when i first saw it at the new wing of IOI City mall!
Bought an ala-carte 2-pieces crispy taco (with minced beef) to try. My verdict?.....i think that Taco Bell is overrated.
Nevertheless i did their online survey and got myself a free packet of cinnamon sticks!
This tastes good....the crispy texture similar to Twisties, but of course is in slightly sweet cinnamon taste.
ok, i will do more 'online survey' but first i need to purchase something from Taco Bell first😂
Went to Ah Cheng laksa for their ais kacang...but it was sold out....
Ended up with assam laksa...
The staff provided me with a bottle of sweet prawn paste....I can fill the assam laksa with unlimited prawn paste, yay!😋
For extra 'ummppph', there are lime at the cutlery/sauces counter....Yea, self-service & free refill too.
Their assam laksa is less spicier than MyLaksa...so it is bearable.
