Madisons (now closed)
Madison’s proudly makes everything from scratch. Ingredients are carefully sourced and dishes are contemporary Australian in style. A set lunch of three courses here, which is available every day including weekends, will set you back just over RM40. For the quality of cuisine found in this hidden gem, that’s an incredibly good deal.
Prices, even in the food court, in Pavilion seem to be elevated above the rest of the city. To try to capture the crowds however there are a number of cheap lunch deals, which serve up equally cheap food. There is one standout however, that provides high quality recipes, 100% made in house, for affordable prices: Quivo. Excellent happy hour deals see wine priced at two for RM26, cocktails two for RM28, and a plate of four sliders with chunky crispy wedges for RM20. The rest of the menu too sees satisfying dishes at very reasonable price points.
Truly a great find in TTDI, the team at La Cafe Memoire also make everything themselves including, breads, to-die-for fettuccine and sauces. Expect to snap up delicious meals, such as a Smoked Duck Salad for RM9 and an enormous juicy Pork Chop for RM25, and still find plenty of cash left in your wallet.
