ronnycakes reviews: Ben’s General Food Store, Bangsar Village I

Happy New Year to all our readers! We may have gone on a short hiatus during the festive season but rest assured that we’re back and will be updating this space often. :)

Anyway, it’s taken me quite a while to pay a visit to Ben’s General Food Store which has been open for ages; since every time I peruse the menu all I seem to see are pizzas and salads… :p and I’m not really a huge fan of either. However, I’ve been hearing great things about the food there so I decided to take the plunge and had a quick lunch there for a girls’ day out.

We ordered a healthy fruit juice (no sugar added and you can also request for no ice) each to go with our meals, mine was Green Apple and Carrot Juice (RM10.90).

Most food bloggers have nothing but praise for the Barley and Button Mushroom Salad (11.90) and after trying it myself, I can definitely see why. At first glance, it looks bland and in no way able to fill up your stomach, but surprisingly I felt quite full after finishing it all off. It was savory and slightly tangy, with well-marinated button mushrooms and the aroma of chopped spring onions. Definitely a winner.

My friend had the Moroccan Lamb Meatballs with a side of Beetroot and Kidney Bean Salad (RM17.90). You can choose your side of salad from their array of choices. I didn’t try the meatballs for myself but my friend seemed to enjoy her meal, and the salad (which came with walnuts as well!) was very refreshing when accompanied with something meaty and cheesy.

On a side note, I love how they use retro canteen-style plates and bowls.


Clarissane tells me that the pizzas are amazing and during our visit I did notice the tables around us ordering pizzas to share, but since it was just the two of us we were unsure whether we could actually finish it all on our own.
BGFS gave me a pleasant surprise and definitely merits a revisit, especially for the pizzas and the delicious looking roast chicken and potatoes that I only saw after I finished eating argh!

Looks so good. *drools*

I will come to you soon.
