I read about list of kids friendly cafe or food joints in KL. I so wanted to bring my son to one of those. Especially with indoor playground. I’m sure he’ll have fun.
Ben’s General Food Store at The Gardens Mall KL came in the list. Managed by The BIG Group, located at a reputable mall in KL.
When I was at this mall, I decided to check out this restaurant. Ben’s General Food Store is located at second floor towards Robinsons.
I was there with my family for lunch. The restaurant was already half occupied.
Their menu was very simple with just wordings and no photos attached. Kids meal are also available on the menu. We placed our order soon after browsing through the menu.
My mom was sitting comfortably here while I went around checking out this place and accompany my son to their playground or play area.
This restaurant is quite spacious and also stroller friendly.
The different types of dining tables available here. You will have more options when its not crowded. The above photo is nearer to the play area.
I preferred to supervise my kid although its an indoor playground. In case he play rough, I can correct him on the spot.

Okay, time to get seated. I think the food is ready.
ABC Chicken Soup – RM6 (kid portion), for my son.
Hainanese Chicken Rice – RM30
Served with poached chicken breast, ginger sauce and a bowl of steamed rice. Rice was quite fluffy, portion was generous too. I don’t really fancy chicken breast unless you are a fan of chicken breast. 🙂
Nasi Ulam with Ayam Percik – RM33 (sorry for the blurry photo)
A Malaysian delicacy rice dish served with a piece of ayam percik, salted egg, ulam (raw vegetables), keropok ikan and budu as condiments. My mom claimed that this nasi ulam was yummy.
Traditional Carbonara – RM35
I am a fan of Carbonara. Hence this serving was all for me. This al-dente spaghetti was cooked with cream sauce, then topped with crispy chicken bits, Parmesan cheese and a poached egg.
Cakes on shelf. Types of cakes available on their menu are; Red Velvet Cake, Coconut Cake, Banoffee Cake, Lemon Meringue Cake, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Cake, Black Forest Cake, Salted Caramel Macadamia Cheesecake, Apple Crumble Tart. Price varies from RM15-18.
Food prices are above average. But I would say its a nice family store or a place that I can catch up with my ‘aunty’ friends while kids can have fun too 😀
