Rock Cafe Sunway at Medan Rock Cafe, Jalan PJS 11/20, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Subang Jaya, Selangor has been around for more than a decade now. As it is a very popular hotspot for food and a place to gather with friends and families; anytime 24 hours 365 days a year i.e. the food court that never closes. Strategically located in Sunway, there are many patrons coming to Rock Cafe Sunway which hails from Subang and Petaling Jaya.


The first impression is that; the Rock Cafe Sunway boasts a few firsts for this segment namely this is one of the only food courts where you can taste out not only local favorite food like Fried Rice, Chap Fan (Mixed Rice) but also International cuisines like the Middle Eastern Food, Indonesian Food, Japanese, Chinese (from China), Italian and other Western delights and more from all the stores around the cafe.


With more than 500 dishes or more to choose from; there is definitely something for everyone at Rock Cafe Sunway.


Secondly; the Rock Cafe Sunway serves Pork Free and Non Halal dishes and has separate utensils and washing areas for the different utensils.


Thirdly; as told by the manager; it is one of the first food courts in Klang Valley to offer a LIVE screening of football matches together with Big Match Of The Week competition where prizes such as original football jersey and original football are given to the correct scores of the match.



Do check out their Rock Cafe Sunway facebook page for the latest Big Match Of The Week and promotion. As told the cafe are usually fully booked for these matches; do make a booking beforehand for a table.



For our food exploration of the Rock Cafe Sunway; we ordered a number of crowd favourite dishes that are served at Rock Cafe Sunway; the first being the 45 Minutes Uncle Huat Fried Rice. A standard peak hour wait time for this delicacy is about 45 minutes.



Our order is for the Special Fried Rice which is laden with Prawns and Char Siew (RM9.50). True to its' popularity; the Fried Rice has a nice Wok Hei that is ingrained in each of the rice bulbs.


Our next order is a great starter dish or for some; it is a great accompaniment to a nice icy cold beer which is the Fried mushroom; According to the manager; the owner of this shop Mushroom King is the original creator of this popular dish with a history of more than 20 years.


You can order either the dint mushroom that is available like the shitake, enoki or oyster mushroom that comes with a special inhouse made sauce for your dips.


Next; from the Indonesia; we have the unique Nasi Bakar. The rice is first fried and wrapped in the banana leaf and grilled to a nice fragrant. The minute you open up the rice wrapping, you can smell the flavourful rice which has a tad of spiciness in it.


The set offering of this Nasi Bakar comes with a Grilled Spicy Chicken which has a char spicy flavour and also fried tempe as a side.


Moving along we were attracted to an outlet which sells Grill Seafood; it offers fresh seafood which is delivered daily from Pulau Ketam. Customers can either order the set offering which starts with RM10.00 or orders the Fresh seafood ala-carte which is charged with by the weight of the chosen seafood.


A check with the order takers is that their most popular style is the Portuguese Grilled; so our orders were for the Grilled String Ray Portuguese Style. We like the flavour of the sauce that was used but it was a little spicier for some of us. We probably can order the spicy level a tad down the scale.


This Grill Food stalls also double up to serve the Rojak Buah Penang which we order it to complement our grilled fish dishes.


After that we saw something interesting when we pass by the Roti Canai stores which serve Roti Canai Burger and Roti Canai Pizza; It must be a first for us, so naturally, we like to taste out what it is like to have a Roti Canai Burger.



When it arrives at the table, we could see the filling is made up of a Ham which is covers with Eggs and sandwich between 2 pieces of Roti Canai serves with Dhall.


A few stalls away from the Roti Canai stall, we reach the Middle Eastern Stall specializing in Arabic Food; where you can order some of the popular Middle Eastern treats from it.



We saw a man grilling some Chicken Mandy and you can smell the nice aroma of the freshly charcoal grill chicken.


You can order this grilled chicken that can be accompanied by the Nasi Briyani or the special wafer thin Pita Bread. Love the taste of this dish. We were told that this stall is very popular and you can feast on these Middle Eastern dish until 2am each day.


Another stall that caught our eyes is the Tandoori stall which has its' recipe from Pakistan (home to the fame Tandoor food). This stall serves a number of dishes such as Naan and Tandoori Chicken.


We made an order for a Double Cheese Naan



and a quarter Chicken Tandoori; Taste wise was good and it was grilled to the right balance will a slight char that enhances the flavour of the grilled chicken. You can taste the flavours of the spices ingrained into the chicken meat.


Situated at a hidden corner is the Chong Qing noodles. Fans of the Spicy Noodles from China will find this spicy noodles a delight. Hail from the district of Chong Qing which is famed for their spicy food in China.


The noodles can be ordered with different cooking styles and there are other China-based dishes like the dumplings and snack dishes for you to taste.


Moving back to taste out some local dishes that are served at Rock Cafe Sunway is the Melaka Nyonya Nasi Lemak. Nasi Lemak is usually served with sambal, but for this stall; if you order your Nasi Lemak with fried chicken you will be served with an Ayam Lemak Curry. Alternatively; you can also order your set with Ayam Lemak Curry which we did. Personally for me; I find the curry to be a little too sweet but for my eating partner they seem to enjoy it.


Opposite the Nasi Lemak stall; is a stall that serves Japanese delicacies with the Japanese Curry as its top seller. We ordered the Katsu Curry rice set which comes with a piece of Fried Chicken Fillet.



or you can try out the Teriyaki Chicken Don from Japanese Corner stall.


For the western food; we ordered a Grilled Lamb Chop that is served with the Mushroom sauce. For our order; the lamb chop was slightly overdone and has a tougher texture. This stall offers an elaborate choice of other western delights that you can choose from.


Our final dish is another Indonesian delight aptly named Indo Deli; It serves Indomie which you can top up with other dishes such as the Spicy Fried Chicken.


There is a craze currently for these Indomie based dishes around KL and Subang; apparently, this Indomie based stall has been around quite some time already. You may want to taste out some of the offerings from this stall.


Before ending our meals, we ordered the Teh Tarik. We used 5 types of tea leaves to make our Teh Tarik; that ensures that you get the right taste, colour, aroma and texture of a real Teh Tarik quips the outlet manager.


For fans of Somersby; you can order the special promotion where you pay RM46.00 for a bucket of 4 icy cold Somersby Apple Cider or if you are a fan of Carlsberg, there is an ongoing promotion of RM54.00 for 3 bottles of Carlsberg Smooth.

Events: Carlsberg Smooth Draught Beer In A Bottle Launch



Many people would really enjoy a cool smooth of a freshly tapped beer; if possible wherever there are and at any time of the day. Carlsberg has specially crafted a brew that delivers the smooth, easy-to-drink experience, the same as you would enjoy a freshly tapped beer. The only difference is it’s in a bottle. Introducing the all-new Carlsberg Smooth Draught that offers consumers a chance to enjoy the smooth sensation of freshly tapped beer anytime, anywhere at an affordable price.


Carlsberg Smooth Draught, is available in a big bottle of 580ml, is a must-have on every beer lovers’ bucket, or quart list. Brewed longer for its signature smoothness with an easy finish, the beautiful golden-hued beer is packaged in an easy to grip bottle with smooth contour lines appearing subtly in the background reinforcing the brew’s uniquely smooth taste. The iconic Carlsberg hop leaf motif embossed on the bottle tastefully accentuates the innovative cold hopping process. It is truly a beauty!



“We are privileged that Malaysia is the pioneer amongst the 140 Carlsberg markets in the world to launch Carlsberg Smooth Draught, a line extension of Carlsberg brand. It is indeed a clever innovation that offers the signature smoothness and easy to drink profile with nice carbonation, just like a freshly tapped beer,” Henrik Juel Andersen, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia commented the launch event.


“Very often, consumers yearn for the smooth sensation of a draught beer but this is not readily available in eateries, food courts and coffee shops that they frequent. Carlsberg Smooth Draught is the answer to many beer lovers’ quests and caters to a consumer preference for the smoothness in a draught beer. It captures the smooth sensation of freshly tapped beer in a bottle, so consumers can now enjoy a smooth brew anytime anywhere at an affordable price,” Andersen added.


Carlsberg uncovered consumers’ deeper insights with the introduction of Carlsberg Smooth Draught as a special edition at hundreds of traditional on-trade outlets in March. Unanimity in consumer response is unmistakable; the brew consistently drew positive feedback and recorded overwhelming repeat orders from the trade. Because consumers love it, Carlsberg will keep it! Carlsberg Smooth Draught is now made a permanent offering under the portfolio brands of Carlsberg Malaysia.


At the launch which was held at the visitor’s lounge of the brewery, trade partners, distributors and members of the media were amused by the transformation of the office space into an outdoor eatery and a beer garden and quenched their thirst with freshly brewed Carlsberg Smooth Draught. Spoilt for the choice of local hawker fare, it was a food roulette paired perfectly with the smooth brew. Stars in the dark sky, sitting in an airy relaxing atmosphere, the guests truly enjoyed sampling Carlsberg Smooth Draught making the launch a smooth head start.
