Welcome to Tiffin at the Yard
Good food brings them boys (and girls) to the yard.
Last Sunday, we checked out Tiffin At the Yard.
DEC 2021 UPDATE: We checked out new vendors and food
We checked out Tiffin at the Yard again on 5th Dec to find new vendors and try new dishes (including a limited offering of mind-blowingly good Lamb Curry Noods). Check out the new post here.
Featuring 15 vendors on rotation
Previously known as Tiffin Food Court, the former pop-up now occupies a permanent space at the Sentul Depot in Kuala Lumpur.
The urban food court features 15 vendors on rotation – with culinary experiences ranging from tacos to pizzas, paellas, cocktails, and wine.
Tiffin at the Yard is now a permanent spot
We arrived at 7pm on Sunday evening – a strategic move, as we wanted to avoid the crowd and long queues.
Unfortunately, some of the vendors and popular food items were already sold out by then, such as Alta Burger (an extension of Alta Cafe in Jalan Bangkung).
(UPDATE: We finally tried the beef burger. Read the post here).
Occupying 22k sq ft of space in Sentul
The food court inhabits a sizable 22,000 sq ft of space. However, we still had to hunt and wait to secure a table (just like any regular food court during peak period). So, employing some kind of strategy is required.
Those looking for a tipple would be pleased to find the 44 Cocktail bar, currently featuring creations by Jason Julian of Soma. There’s also the Wine Bar and Tiger Beer Bar.
Take my baos to Sesame Street
For starters, we ordered Mr Crabs from The Bao Guys.
The Mr Crabs (RM15) is an appetiser dish with three deep-fried mantous served with a chilli crab dip.The mantous were piping hot as they were freshly cooked and retained their brown, crispy skin. The dip was sufficiently spicy, sweet and sour. A great starter in our opinion.
For mains, we settled on Sesame’s Street – which features contemporary Chinese dishes from the folks of Small Shifting Space based in Petaling Street.
We ordered the only item left on the menu – the Beef Jianbing (RM35), which is fried rice wrapped with egg, and topped with sous-vide beef shoulder.
Max enjoyed the dish – he thought the beef was tender, with enough rareness for juices to seep out. The accompanying cabbage dish was a nice touch. However, Ming was not impressed as she thought the dish was under-seasoned and the fried rice lacked wok hei.
Boozy ice-cream, please
For dessert, we enjoyed two scoops of boozy ice cream from Licky Chan.
Lickin’ on Gin & Juice is exactly what it says – calamansi ice cream mixed with tonic, gin and drizzled with olive oil.
Beach, please! was a refreshing counterpoint to the sour notes of the previous scoop, with flavours of watermelon, cucumber and Maraschino liqueur.
Would we come back? Yes! We definitely want to come back and check out the other vendors. (We finally did! Check out the new post here).
Tiffin at the Yard opens from 5pm to 12am on Thursdays and Fridays, and 10am-12pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
