If you have not heard of this place, you are missing a lot! Mercure Kuala Lumpur Shaw Parade is a hotel located at the fringe of Kuala Lumpur's Bukit Bintang shopping belt and connected to Shaw Parade retail mall. It is only a short walk from malls such as Berjaya Times Square, Lot 10, Pavilion and Imbi Monorail station. Also, it is in very close proximity to future commercial projects such as Tun Razak Exchange, BBCC and an MRT station! Now, we wouldn’t be selling you the place if we do not have something awesome to share.

It is none other than Chorak Restaurant, the hotel’s eatery. We had the opportunity to try out their food and are happy to report that it is a must-try! Let’s start with their burgers. Located around popular hawker centres, this gourmet burger is a nice change from what is familiar and abundant. With its juicy patty, well-buttered buns and delicious sauce, no wonder it has become the restaurant’s best-selling dish! What’s more, there are two to choose from; the Chorak Chicken Burger and the Chorak Beef Burger.

Next off is the Nasi Goreng Istimewa or Special Fried Rice. Just the fried rice by itself is already delectable. It is well spiced and has the perfect amount of moisture. But of course, it wouldn’t be called ‘special’ if that is the end of it. It comes with delicious crispy fried boneless chicken, fish crackers, fried egg and otak-otak topped with traditional spicy chicken floss.

While lunching in Chorak, all drinks from the poolside bar at their top floor are also available for order! We had the Pina Colada and Mojito. Both were refreshing; they were definitely made with fresh juices. There are plenty more to choose from! From cocktails to mocktails, fresh juices and smoothies, they have it all.

The restaurant is open daily for breakfast and lunch. In fact, they even have a lunch special called ‘Power Lunch’ that comes with soup of the day and ice lemon tea. Not to mention, you can top up a small amount for a buy 1 free 1 smoothie yogurt or Gelatomio ice cream! What we love about them is their commitment to honouring your time. The kitchen guarantees that you will get your food in 20 minutes or they will give you free dessert. Now that’s quality service.
