Do you ever find yourself craving for food that provides consolation? A bite that comforts the soul and body and takes all stress and worries away.

That is why we scoured the entire city for guiltily satisfying comfort food, all just for you (and ourselves too, of course).

And the result? We found four eateries that let us munch away and eat to our hearts' content and you should too!


BarBenQue at Plaza Batai

To put it simply: BarBenQue is a restaurant that serves up mouth- watering, on-the-go-esque American food.

New in town, its fuss-free menu, comprised of burgers, wraps, hot dogs, deep-fried Mars Bar and bottomless sodas, is already getting a lot of attention.

"Essentially, we want to offer our customers Americana diner favourites at a great price,” says Benjamin Yong, the Group CEO of e BIG Group.

“And because we are a dinner and supper time joint, we are one of the very few places in the city where you can find such tasty food late at night!”


BarBenQue is located inside Plaza Batai on Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights, Kuala Lumpur.

Proof Pizza + Wine at APW Bangsar

If you take pleasure in pairing your pizzas with wine, Proof is the place for you.

At APW Bangsar's only pork-serving restaurant, you will find compelling options such as the Spicy Calabrian Pizza, topped with soft, spicy ‘nduja sausage, pumpkin, mozzarella and cherry tomatoes, and the Luganega Pork Sausage Pizza, crested with sweet salsiccia, egg, yoghurt, cauliflower and feta, among others.

Wash it down with a glass of red – or white – from their impressive selection of wines from all over the world.


Proof is located in APW Bangsar on 29, Jalan Riong, Bangsar.

Random Food Store at Damansara Utama

Step inside Random Food Store and you’re immediately struck by the cultured hum of a contemporary-classic dining room firing on all cylinders.

But what set it apart from the pack is its menu that offers recognisable tastes and textures.

Waygu Bao, Chinese Roast Duck, Starfruit Smoked Paprika Chicken and Mango Ice Cream with Kaya and Brie, with the most traditional and local flavours, “we want our customers to feel a sense of familiarity when they dine with us,” shares co-founder Jane Chuck.

Here, you will also get to enjoy a good cup of joe from the people of One Half Coffee.


Random Food Store is located at 9, Jalan SS 21/37, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya.

Tiki Taka at Medan Damansara

Whether it’s the Spicy Prawn Cocktail, Salted Egg Crab Bun or Nutella Bacon, everything at Tiki Taka is served in miniature portion.

Their approach of having small plates is something which they believe more and more people are starting to appreciate.

Getting full on one plate of meal is passé, according to Chef Carrie Scully.

It all began when the chef travelled to Barcelona with her business partners two years ago.

“It’s a beautiful city; we especially loved the food and felt that the pincho concept was something that was missing in the F&B scene in Malaysia. We felt people would enjoy this in Malaysia as well,” she says.

And as it turned out, Chef Scully was right.


Tiki Taka is located on 138, Jalan Kasah, Medan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur.
Tel: +6016-328 7438; Instagram: @tikitakamy.
