Tasty Asian Foodcourt

Special thanks to Kompleks Bukit Jambul for extending this food review invitation.

Kompleks Bukit Jambul was the largest shopping mall in Bayan Baru before it was superseded by Queensbay Mall. Today, Kompleks Bukit Jambul specializes in apparel and electronics. The mall also has a cineplex and a bowling alley at the top floor.
Today marks the grand opening of Tasty Asian Foodcourt on the 1st Floor. The eatery occupies the former location of Kenny Rogers Roasters. The food court serves a variety of food that should appeal to most people.
Tasty Asian Foodcourt is operated by the mall management, but food and drinks are prepared by individual vendors. Most of these vendors used to set up food stalls in front of Kompleks Bukit Jambul on weekends. Due to popular demand, the mall management decided to give them a more permanent place to sell their wares.
The first counter, Sempoi Cafe, serves a mixture of Malaysian and Western dishes. Shown here are Kari Ikan Royal, Asam Pedas and Gulai Itik. There is also a Sarawakian dish called Ayam Pansuh.
In addition, Sempoi Cafe serves Malay-style Char Koey Tiaw (RM6.50), Char Koey Kak (RM6.50) and Nasi Bombay Ayam (RM6.50) too.
The adjacent stall specializes in Malay-style Nasi Campur. Customers can select food items like kari kepala ikan (fish head curry), ikan bawal goreng (fried pomfret), sotong kembang (spicy cuttlefish), ulam (raw vegetables) and sambal belacan (spicy shrimp paste).
Meanwhile, The Wrapz specializes in burgers and wraps. The signature wrap is Beef Smokey (RM9.90). As for customers who do not take beef, Chicken Rendang (RM8.90) is recommended. The Wrapz serves Mushroom Soup & Garlic Bread (RM5.90) too.
Tasty Asian Foodcourt has a counter which serves Arab food. Shown here are Hummus, Arab Salad and Thousand Island Salad. The salads are surprisingly good. Customers can also order Chicken Shawarma and Chicken Mandi from the same stall.
As for noodles, Curry Mee (RM5.00) comes with cockles, cuttlefish, fish balls, tofu puffs, yardlong beans, bean sprouts and chili paste. The curry is reasonably appetizing.
There are additional food stalls just outside Tasty Asian Foodcourt. The most popular vendor is the one selling Asam Laksa (RM5.00). This local Penang dish uses a savory fish broth infused with tamarind.
As for desserts, go for the ultimate ABC 3 Flor (RM8.00) where sweetened shaved rice is topped with 3 scoops of Oreo ice cream!
From now till 11 November 2019, Tasty Asian Foodcourt is giving RM10.00 cash vouchers to each of 20 early birds every day. In addition, customers who spend at least RM20.00 in a single receipt can redeem a cup of espresso-based coffee. This offer is only applicable on weekends between 11:00am and 3:00pm.
Tasty Asian Foodcourt operates from 11:00am to 10:00pm daily. The prices here are comparable to those of open-air hawker centers. All dishes in Tasty Asian Foodcourt are pork-free.
