Wonder Food Adventure @ 1 Utama


In conjunction with 1 Utama's Wonder Food event from 4th to 24th November 2013, 50 bloggers from the Butterfly Project (including me!) were invited to a food adventure to explore and savour the wide variety of chic eateries offered at 1 Utama Food Street. Shoppers can now visit 1 Utama's Food Street to satisfy their cravings for authentic local street food instead of travelling to Penang or Malacca!There are many more restaurants around here but there were only 15 participating food and beverages outlet for this campaign.

LG Promenade: SS2 Goreng Pisang, Ninja Joe, Seaweed Club, I Love Yoo, Eat & Happy Yong Tau Foo, Oyster King, Bisou, Mr Cendol, Pao Xiang Bak Kut Teh, Ko Hyang Korean Country Delights.

LG Highstreet: Lammeeya, BBQ Chicken, Food Box, Vivo American Pizza and Panini, and Lava.

Grabbed my passport and we are good to go! ^_^


First stop: Vivo American Pizza and Panini

Started with the secret recipe of the Horrigan family, Vivo American Pizza and Panini served the best American style pizza in town using the traditional method of baking. The ambience of the restaurant is also very good for a small family gathering. At Vivo, you can order rice dishes or panini sandwhiches apart from pizza and paste. :)

They're having the 50% off pizza deals every Monday to Friday! No harm trying out right? :)


Smoked Chicken BBQ Pizza topped with chicken strips, fresh mushrooms, onions, red & green capsicums, black olives topped in Vivo's special BBQ sauce. Well I don't really eat vege but I find this tastes good actually! One of the signature dish in Vivo that you shouldn't miss out :)


Baked Chicken Chop marinated with special spices & seasoning and baked to perfection. Bon appetit!


Volcanic Chocolate with Ice Cream! One of our favourites during our visits to Vivo American Pizza & Panini where we gobbled it up within seconds once it was served. Everyone was so shocked yet surprised that they offer such gastronomical desserts! I'll definitely going back and try out some other desserts like chocolate brownie and blueberry pizza with ice cream (that sounds interesting I know! :P)


2nd stop: Molten Lava

With the colourful entrance, I bet you wouldn't miss out the yummy looking photos of churros and macaroons displayed right over at their counter. Molten Lava is a shop specialized in churros and funnel cakes perfect for dessert lovers like you and me!





A churro, sometimes referred to as a Spanish doughnut, is a fried-dough pastry-based snack, sometimes made from potato dough, that originated in Spain. There are two types of churros in Spain; one is thin (knotted) and the other is long and thick (porra). They both are normally eaten for breakfast dipped in hot chocolate or topped with cinnamon sugar.

It's my first time trying churros actually, I gotta say that it tastes heavenly! Crispy on the outside and soft & fluffy on the inside, plus the cinnamon sugar awww... love at first bite ♥ I would love to try out their filled churros eg. dipped with chocolate or sambal ikan bilis(?!) and funnel cakes during my next visit teehee.


3rd stop: Bisou Bake Shop

Handmade with the best ingredients and utmost care, they take pride in making the best tasting treats for every customers. Sporting a selection of homestyle cupcakes, cakes and cookies, there is something to suit every palate. With 13 cupcake flavours everyday and an additional "Cupcake of the Month", cupcake lovers are spoilt for choice! And for those who would perhaps prefer a bigger piece of cake, they have a fabulous selection that includes their very famous Banoffee Pie and a Real Black Forest Gateau.



Every little corner at Bisou Bake Shop is like a piece of art as they put in a lot of effort decorating their shop primarily white with dark chocolate and pink accents that echo the rich chocolate in the cakes they serve.

Cupcake of the month, Chocolush. Chocolate cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting... yumm!


4th stop: Seaweed Club

The cosy kiosk of Seaweed Club present a light and healthy alternative to meals with seaweed salad popiah brimming with juicy yam beans, special sauces, fresh cucumber and crunchy carrots contained within fragrant roasted seaweed. You may choose to dine-in or takeaway your personal favourites ranging from original, spicy, wasabi, tuna and vegetarian options before continuing on shopping adventures. For your information, Seaweed Club does not serve pork or alcohol on its menu.

5th stop: Eat & Happy Yong Tau Foo






Ready to be spoiled with over 30 varieties of yong tau foo to choose from and immerse these mouth-watering pieces in soup or try it together with their signature curry sauce. You may also turn in into a hearty meal by adding on rice or noodles. RM7.90 for a bowl of noodles and three pieces of yong tau foo, I think it's quite reasonable and it's definitely a good choice for those who are looking for cheaper meals in 1 Utama.


6th stop: I Love Yoo

Crunchy You Tiao, freshly made Tau Fu Fa - well-loved and familiar Chinese snacks; I Love Yoo aims to give food lovers a taste of the traditional, with a modern twist. Their foods are suitable for all levels of consumers of any race and religion that even my mum, boyfriend and I love to visit I Love Yoo very much. When I was doing my part time job at Publika, I often visits I Love Yoo for some snacks or tea time treats. My favourites are butterfly bun, sesame ball (comes with 3 flavours!) and tau fu fa. :)




Their foods are freshly made daily and they do not use preservatives. No pork/lard used.

7th stop: SS2 Goreng Pisang

A homegrown business started with a humbling beginning in the early 1980s by Madame Ong & Mr Wong from bicycle food carts to a small yet cosy kiosk in 1 Utama. All the while, they strive to source for top quality produce from the local fresh market and local supplier to maintain the original texture and taste of their delicacies without additional additives and preservatives due to the constant demand of their fritters specialty.





One of their signature: banana fritters. Look at that crispy golden outer layer of banana fritters... *slurp*
They only use Pisang Raja as their banana fritters due to its incomparable sweetness, texture and suitability for frying. Besides, their secret recipe of their unique & crispy fritters is a distinctive mixture of flour and rice flour. There are no unknown additives or preservatives added to their recipe.


8th stop: Ninja Joe

Ninja Joe is an original Japanese quick serve concept best known for delicious pork burgers! As one of the pioneering burger joints, Ninja Joe boasts fresh, made to order, juicy pork patty servings packed between custom bake, ninja-sliced buns, served with amiable sidekicks of fries and drinks.

Now they do serve sandwhiches, hotdogs and bento too.



Hikkori BBQ Smoked Burger on the board! The patty was rather juicy and well-seasoned, paired with the crispy smoked bacon... it's delicious!

Jia Qi, my new friend and she's so cute & friendly :)

With Trislynn, the crazy girl as usual teehee!
