Yesterday I was a bit homesick, and usually Sarawak Laksa will work wonders as a cure, but this time I wanted something different, something that would bring back my childhood memories (90’s kid syndrome), and then I remembered SugarBun have recently opened its branch in Menara Hap Seng, KL! Yeay! So without further ado we went there straight after work, and since it’s the first week of school holidays for Malaysian school, traffic was a breeze 😀 For many of us East Malaysians, SugarBun is our KFC or McDonald’s (back in those days) and it’s our famous fast food restaurant that we are so fond of. There were not much of the popular fast food restaurants during the early 80’s in East Malaysia mainly because of the logistics, and franchising issues. Even with that issues, I remembered vividly enjoying Grandy’s mash potatoes, Hungry Horse’s burgers, and milkshakes, and Jollibee’s desserts in the early 90’s (now closed) but SugarBun is still standing strong, and they even have it in Melbourne, Australia!
As I reached Menara Hap Seng, my mind was already imagining myself chomping the famous fish burger and slurping Chrysanthemum tea away, but to my frustration those two are not in the menu yet…… 😥 and with this sadden news I quickly ordered the juicy broasted chicken meal with savoury rice (one of their signature menu), and three layered tea with gula apong!(Nipah palm sugar) to mend my broken heart..huhuhu, and for him, he ordered the Borneo mackerel meal.
When I looked at the menu, I found some of it are quite new to me, or maybe they serve it in Sabah, or Brunei.(I don’t know -_-“) and this outlet looks so different from the ones I visited in Kuching, an open concept which are divided into four sections; Broasted chicken, Sarawak Laksa, Giant Garoupa fish, and Beverages to choose from.
Overall, I can say that the quality of food is excellent, service was okay, cleanliness was tip-top A-game, and I may have to wait for at least another month for its full menu, but most importantly, if you plan to visit this SugarBun, be prepared on the odd operating hours 😦 or else, you won’t get your craving fix if you come later than 8.00pm on weekdays or 2.00pm on Saturday, and also it is closed on Sunday, but hey…look at the brighter side peeps, SUGARBUN IS IN KL!!!
