Whether or not you are from Kuala Lumpur, we’re pretty sure that you have heard of Subang Jaya’s SS15 neighbourhood. Why is that area so popular, you may ask? Well, SS15 is very well-known for its bubble tea street, where you can find a whole row of different bubble tea chains to buy from. Not only that, but this area is also a student hub due to its proximity with a few universities.
However, SS15 has more to offer. Another thing SS15 can pride themselves in is the amount of food they have. It’s like a food haven over there! With all that was said, from the bubble tea street to the student hub and food paradise located here, you should expect a crowded and limited parking space around this area. But, let us give you a list of some mouth-watering food here that will make your visit worth it.
1. Buttermilk Chicken @ Gold Chili (Pork-Free)
Who doesn’t love a fragrant, buttery and juicy buttermilk chicken for dinner? It’s no surprise that Gold Chili is famous for this dish. The lightly fried chicken is soaked with a generous amount of creamy, sweet and salty butter sauce. With a little extra charge, you can ‘upgrade’ your chicken to a boneless version. If you’d like to try another protein, there is also buttermilk beef and seafood dishes available.
