"Sometimes the most famous spots are not the best ones"
Bragged about as "THE PLACE TO GO" by hundreds of KL blogs, mags and madmen, I finally made the trip to Mansion Tea Stall to see what all the fuss was about. I had mentally prepared for it to knock Valentine Roti off my top spot, based on the sheer number of people who recommended this place.
Did it beat Valentine? Did it fuck.
I ordered the Special, and it came with a chopped up (cold) roti that had been fried hours ago, some sambal, dal and 2 runny eggs. Though the flavours were completely acceptable, there was nothing here that I would order again. The roti was inferior to Valentine, the mix of all the ingredients just made a rather slimy, luke-warm, unpleasant eating experience.
File under: Delicious for people who munch tadpoles in their spare time.
These recommendations are just personal opinions based on my palate, things change, chefs get fired or replaced, places open-close, relocate, so take it all with a pinch of MSG and discover your own gems too. But please do try a few of these, they have been researched exhaustively.
