There are some facts that I have researched on lately that cleared my mind. All along I always thought the Canton-i (http://wp.me/pCcuC-4A) at ION Orchard in Singapore is related to Dragon-i in Malaysia… I was right, Canton-i is under the Dragon-i Restaurant Group of Companies. Whether the outlet in Singapore is a direct expansion or franchise, I’ve yet to find out. The other thing I’ve always thought that Canton-i was under the Paradise Group of Singapore, apparently not, just that they have Canton Paradise under their group which sounds similar.
Anyways this is my second time here at this outlet in KL after so many years… the first time was before I started writing on food some 5 years ago. So I was in town for work and then met up with a friend for dinner to check out their food once again. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Standard still as good as last time. If I had my other foodie friends with me, we could have ordered all their signature dishes.
Service: Excellent. However, you can see the manageress keep eyeing on the other service staff. I feel for the waitresses/waiters.
Ambience: Not as posh as I remember it to be. But still quite comfy for diners.
Price: All that for around RM$200. About S$80. In Singapore it will cost more than that.
RTE: I might but I still prefer the street food wherever I travel. 🙂
Location: Lot No. 1.17.00, Storey No. Level 1, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Tel : +603 2143 7688. Reservations highly recommended.
So last week, I was asked by a friend to go for some food tasting at Canton-i located at ION Orchard. I was pretty excited ‘cos it was my first time to ION since it’s opening dunno when. 😛 It was raining super heavily that day and I was late for half an hour. But was warmly greeted by the Ops Mgr there together with some media people. The Ops Mgr asked us what do we want to try, I told her that we’ll leave it to her to select the famous dishes for us.
As we proceeded to the VIP section, we felt the place ambience was really nice and comfy.
The first items to come were the drinks. I was told that 2 of their drinks are pretty hot selling.
Then comes the food!!! Yummy!
Before we left, I had to shoot the row of roasted meats for me to remember! ;P
