Taste Enclave Classic@Pavilion - Tasting Best KL Hawker Street Food in Pavilion Review

Eating hawker street food have never been more comfortable to me than this. For once, I get to enjoyed some of the few best hawker street food of Kuala Lumpur in a posh and comfortable dining place.

Now you can enjoy all this tasty KL hawker street food without the sweat at Taste Enclave Classic@Pavilion located at located a Lot 2.65.00, 2.67.00 & 2.74.00, Level 2, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, No. 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur.

The dining concept here is a simple modern design, which is brightly lit unlike those hawker place where it is dim and most of the time you don't get to see what you eat. Also at Taste Enclave Classic, it is super clean compared to the dingy places where these local favourites are served.

Taste Enclave Classic @Pavilion brings some of KL favourites and nostalgic hawker fare like Nasi Ayam Singapura, Heun Kee Claypot Rice, Jalan Kayu Prata, Ah Hui Bak Kut Teh, Tong's Roast, Sentul Ah Yap Hokkien Mee, Xi Min Mini Wok and Big Tap & Fruit Juice Bar with an OPEN KITCHEN concept - which you can see the cooking process taken, to cook your favourite hawker fare right before your eyes.

I ordered a very special drink called the Avocado with Gula Melaka. It is a very interesting mix of blended Avocado with the distinctive sweet taste of the Gula Melaka. It is not too sweet and was quite refreshing start for the night.

For dinner, we had the Nasi Ayam Singapura set, which consists of a plate of Steamed Chicken. The steamed chicken was very fleshy and have a firm texture which too me is the most basic requirement for a nice Chicken rice meal.

This is because at Taste Enclave Classic@Pavilion, they use the Choi Yuen (Village) Chicken which, its meat are of a much better quality compared with the normal chicken (farmed and cage chicken) which usually are quite plain taste and soft texture.

Teochew Braised Eggs - this is the Singapore style braised eggs which has its root link back to the teochew style that Singapore is popular for. This is part of the Nasi Ayam Singapura set.

and lastly the Oyster sauce vegetable to complete the Nasi Ayam Singapura.

Then we tried the Roast Duck From Tong's Roast, the skin was crisp and meat was tender yet succulent to every bite. This set is served with White Rice.

This was then followed by Claypot Rice from Heun Kee - The Claypot was filled with Waxed Chinese Sausages, Chicken meat and the Salted fish which is a must for this dish. My suggestion is to mix and eat this rice as quickly as possible, as any delay might cause some dryness to the entire dish.

Next, we had the special Bak Kut Teh from Ah Hui Bak Kut Teh. This is a KL style Bak Kut Teh, meaning it is of a clear soup type, which unlike the Klang cousin, which is of the thick gravy type. For KL version of Bak Kut Teh, it has to be having, a strong herbalish aroma. For my kick of Bak Kut Teh, I usually frequent  a place in Pudu for my fix of this dish and always used that as my benchmark for any other Bak Kut Teh. The version here, although still quite aromatic and flavourful, still lack the total fire power of my favourite BKT.

Lastly, we had the Murtabak from Jalan Kayu Prata. It was a Chicken Murtabak that was nicely done and tasted delicious, when eaten with the curry and dhall that came with it. It was as expected from the outlet although the filling is much more at Taste Enclave Classic @Pavilion compared to the original shop which I had.

Taste wise most of the offering of hawker street food from Taste Enclave Classic @Pavilion are as close as what you get from visiting the individual outlet, but as mention, you dine in a comfortable and classy ambience, that will delight your senses and taste buds at a small premium price.
