“Why Pavilion & Lot 10?”
To be honest, I choose Pavilion and Lot 10 as my first destination of food hunting without any further thinking. When I think of food, I think of city; hence, Pavilion and Lot 10 are my first choice. I’ve always wanted to try out thee food in Bukit Bintang area as it has variety types of food from different countries. In addition, the night view of Bukit Bintang is interesting! You can see LED Billboard shining in the dark, cars on the road, people crossing the road and many more!! Without wasting anymore time, Let’s start our Food Hunting Journey at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur!

On my way to Bukit Bintang…
Taking public transport has it pros and cons. We’ve chosen to take KTM as our one-way transportation to Bukit Bintang. We love to take public transport as we get to view different sceneries and how the train system works. Even though getting here will be time-consuming, but we would recommend it for those who are not having a pack travel schedule!
1st Stop: Brunch at 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken
Our first stop to have brunch is at 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken, located at NU Sentral. TO reach NU Sentral, you will have to take an escalator after exiting KTM KL Sentral.
As 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken is a fast food restaurant, they perform self-service to the customers. We will have to order and pay at the counter before proceeding to have our meals.
There is a pickup counter where customers are required to collect their food when the table pager rings or vibrates.

Besides, they also provide the customers a wash basin and dustbin to throw away the waste after the meal.
So, remember to clean up the table after your meal for next customer’s convenient!
The shop layout of 4 Fingers Crispy Chicken.
The food menu is shown as below:
We ordered a 12 Pcs Wings Combo which is the signature dish in 4 Fingers. We also get to choose the flavour of the wingettes and drummets such as Soy Garlic or Hot or Mixed.
Flavour choosing is not only for the crispy chicken, but also the FRIES! They have flavour such as Seaweed or Kimchi. So, fear not if you are indecisive on which flavour to choose for your meal.
12 Pcs Wings Combo (Mixed flavour) and 2 Fries (Seaweed and Kimchi flavour) with 2 own choice beverages.
Cost: RM 35.40
We would highly recommend you to try out this! For the flavour choices, we would recommend both Mixed for the wingettes and drummets while Seaweed flavour for the fries.
Reached Bukit Bintang!!!
Finally we are here at Bukit Bintang! A walking distance of 600m (roughly 3 minutes) from Monorail Station Bukit Bintang will bring us to our destination, which is Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
This is the entrance of Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. You will see a outstanding water fountain decorated on special days such as Merdeka Day.

Menu for KAKIGŌRI
We had ordered a Watermelon with Rose Espuma & Red Fruits Kakigōri and each one slices of Matcha Roll Cake & Hojicha Roll Cake. We had visited this shop several times but we still love the shaved ice they served!
Finally they are here! Our Watermelon Kakigōri and Roll Cake slices! Yum Yum!
Watermelon Kakigōri – RM 17.00
Matcha Roll Cake – RM 10.00
Hojicha Roll Cake – RM 10.00
The taste of the Watermelon shaved ice is superb. The sweet fragrance of rose espuma whipped cream with strawberry and grapes sliced as toppings match perfectly!
Right after the toppings, here comes the watermelon shaved ice which tastes like how summer is, Refreshing and Chilling. We extremely suggest you to have yourself a Watermelon shaved ice under a hot day.
The roll cake too, is served excellently. The bitter taste of Uji Matcha with slightly sweet whipped cream makes the roll cake taste bitter and sweet at the same time! As for the Hojicha Roll Cake, we would say that the well roasted tea carries its own unique fragrance which would surprises your taste buds.
As for lunch, we had decided to walk out Pavilion Kuala Lumpur to Lot 10 shopping complex. Lot 10 is just a 350m walking distances (around 2 minutes) from Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, which is suitable for a walk before lunch.
