It was a lunch before Talika Skin Retouch Launch and here I was with Fatin and Jean. We hang out every now and then for shopping, food, events and etc. I had dine in Ben’s at KLCC once and it wasn’t a pleasant experience because there was a hair in my salad but they did changed my salad. I was crossing my fingers when we decided to have our lunch here.
Oozy Cheese Toastie
‘with cheddar, gruyere & parmesan cheese’ – Ben’s
This was ordered by Fatin, I took a small bite out of it. Served with salad and chips as sides, the bread was toasted nicely with butter and the cheese was melted in between. It was like having a slice of cheesy pizza but in a sandwich. The cheese combination gives a tinge of saltiness to the sandwich which doesn’t make the taste bland.
‘tossed with olive oil, garlic and dried chillies’ – Ben’s
This is Jean’s dish, also I took a small bite. Topped with a leaf (which I’m not so sure what leaf) and dried chillies, there wasn’t much of a flavour but it has a very mild spiciness. She then used my pesto sauce to mix with her spaghetti and it tasted a lot more better. I’m happier to see her eating with the pesto, otherwise she was having a hard time eating it.
‘layers of pasta, sauteed mushrooms, herbs & cheese, baked till golden’ – Ben’s
Tadaaa~ this is my dish and I have been craving for lasagne. Mushroom has always been my favourite and I was curious to find out how does this combination go. Served with salad and pesto sauce, the lasagne was delicious. The mushroom that they used was oyster mushroom and usually this type of mushroom doesn’t have much flavour but I could tell the mushroom indeed was sautéed because the fragrant olive oil. It was quite a large piece that towards the end I couldn’t finish it. I like the original flavour without mixing the pesto sauce hence I gave it all to Jean.
This time I’m really satisfied dining here. Everything was quite good except for Jean’s dish, poor girl but she managed to make it a twist. Currently, Ben’s are available at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Suria KLCC and Publika, Solaris Dutamas.
