Atria Shopping Gallery
is a new addition to the malls in Klang Valley. Originally founded in 1982, Atria used to be an iconic mall in PJ for several decades. It is now revamped (some say rebuilt) into a stylish and massive mall with 6 floors of retail space. One of the key attractions of the new Atria is definitely its many new and interesting restaurants that offer a great variety of food choices.
Here are some of our top recommendations for new restaurants in Atria! (The restaurants are listed in no particular order. Some of the establishments below are not halal.)
1. Tokyo Ramen by Mengokoro Kunimoto (3rd Floor)
Ramen lovers rejoice! Now you can enjoy the authentic flavors of Tokyo Style Ramen in Atria Shopping Gallery! The restaurant is run by a Japanese, and the food is prepared by a Japanese chef too to ensure that the taste is authentic and original. We recommend their signature Tonkatsu Ramen served with chasu, bean sprouts, bamboo shoots, seaweed and spring onion. The broth is boiled with pork bones for 6 to 8 hours. No wonder the soup is so thick and flavorful!
2. Manmaru Robatayaki & Bar (G Floor)
This outlet is an entirely different concept from its first outlet in Mid Valley, as this Manmaru
is more to a fine dining restaurant serving Japanese fusion cuisine with amazing presentation. One of the must-try specialty dishes here is the Kushiyaki Moriawase, which is a platter combining more than 10 different types of Japanese BBQ skewered meats and vegetables. The beautifully decorated Salmon Ikura Millefeuille served with raw salmon, salmon roe, and shrimp is also highly recommended. Another must try Japanese restaurant in Atria Shopping Gallery.
3. Nosh Up (Concourse Floor)
Same as its first outlet at Jaya Shopping Centre, Nosh Up
is a cozy café that offers a wide range of Western and Asian dishes with a creative twist. One of the most popular dishes here is the Grilled Sotong Sumbat with Rice. The grilled squid is stuffed with rice, which gives you a soft yet springy texture. Another interesting dish would be the Crispy Lamb Shank. The lamb shank is not braised like what we normally have, but deep-fried until the exterior is crispy and the interior succulent! Something different!
4. Pelicana Chicken (3rd Floor)
