Especially when you’re walking around a mall as massive as Pavilion, KL.
We stumbled upon New Shanghai while walking around the Pavilion basement which is pretty much a foodie’s paradise. In addition to a wide variety of restaurants, there’s a huge Food Republic and a gourmet supermarket.
What attracted us was the open kitchen where we could see the chefs hard at work churning out freshly made dim sum and the row of bamboo steamers with piping hot buns. Of course, the big, plush armchairs sealed the deal for us.
With a pot of chinese tea and a selection of pumpkin, lian rong and tau sar paus, including a really cute piggy one, we settled down for a leisurely afternoon tea.
Great spot to rest your feet after all that shopping.
