Golden Bowl Cafetiam

Special thanks to Golden Bowl Cafetiam for extending this food review invitation.

Golden Bowl Cafetiam started as a joint venture among three entrepreneurs who share a common passion for food. Founded in Batu Lanchang, the restaurant has added new food items over the years. Today I visited the outlet at The Promenade.
Golden Bowl Cafetiam is known for popularizing milky cheesy soup (招牌芝士汤). Other recommended soups here are milky broth (浓郁上汤), hot & sour (酸辣汤) and asam pedas (亚参酸辣汤). Meanwhile, noodle options are rice vermicelli (米线), ramen (拉面) and instant noodle (快熟面).
Since each person's palate is unique, the restaurant allows each diner to customize the noodle bowl to one's liking. There are roughly 20 ingredients to choose from. Popular ones are fried fish (炸鱼柳), chicken dumplings (鸡饺), beef balls (牛肉丸), cocktail sausages (香肠) and ring rolls (玲玲卷).
If you prefer rice dishes, Salted Egg 1/4 Fried Chicken (咸蛋酱炸鸡椰浆饭, RM13.90) is a good choice. Coated with salted egg paste, the chicken is extremely savory and delicious to the last morsel. The dish comes with sambal (chili paste), fried anchovies, hard-boiled eggs, sliced cucumber and coconut-infused rice.
As for Western dishes, the restaurant serves poultry dishes such as Italianese Chicken (意式芝士鸡排, RM14.90). Similar to Chicken Parmigiana, the chicken chop is baked with tomato sauce and a slice of cheddar cheese. Cheesy potato wedges and garden salad are served on the side.
Aglio-Olio (蒜香鲜虾面, RM12.90) is cooked with garlic, olive oil, prawns, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. I am pleased that the spaghetti is cooked al dente. The pasta dish is topped with parmesan cheese for added flavor.
Golden Bowl Cafetiam has several interesting beverages too. Besides Hor Ka Sai (虎咬狮) that I tasted previously, the restaurant also serves Kiam Kopi (咸咖啡, RM4.00) and Yin Yong (鸳鸯, RM3.00). The former has a hint of salty aftertaste, while the latter blends bitter-sweet coffee and creamy milk tea.
Compared to similar eateries in the vicinity, Golden Bowl Cafetiam is priced reasonably affordable. In fact, the dining section is packed with office workers during lunch hours. In case The Promenade is not a convenient location for you, Golden Bowl Cafetiam also operates at Batu Lanchang and New World Park.
