Bofe Eatery in section 19 Petaling Jaya is quickly gaining popularity with its winning combination of creative Asian fusion food using only high quality ingredients. A helpful factor in its rise to the top are its rather affordable prices, with mains starting from just RM8.90 - plus the diverse menu is great for large groups who can’t agree on a specific cuisine type.
Its name is a brief abbreviation of ‘best of everything’, and the restaurant is a stone's throw (500m) from the happening SS2 Mall. A great place to visit if you’re tired of the same-old, same-old, Bofe Eatery offers a Malaysian-influenced, seasonal menu with highlights including vodka-infused crab canapes, trufle fries, goma duck breast, and rum and raisin affogato.
The sunny blue and white interior design of Bofe Eatery makes for a warm and comfortable atmosphere, with whitewashed brick walls, wooden cafeteria-style communal tables and booths with brown and blue throw cushions, and homey potted plants atop rustic wood cabinets. The glass-wall front section of the restaurant allows diners to gaze out onto the busy street easily.
Thirteen kilometres from the KL city centre, Bofe Eatery is easily accessible via the light rail transit (LRT) train: hop on at the KLCC station in Suria KLCC, and alight at the Taman Paramount station – the restaurant is only a ten-minute drive away.
Food-wise, expect farm-to-table fare, with inspiration drawn from Chinese, Malay, Indian, and Peranakan cuisine. Traditional flavours are given a playful, modern spin in dishes like their paprika chicken soba, roast duck burritos (RM8.90), apple salad (RM6.90) and chicken katsu and mojo.
More international influences are also evident in the menu, particularly in the memorable watermelon gazpacho (RM6.90) – the traditional Spanish dish given a cool spin, with watermelon instead of tomato. Other highlights include the RM8.90 quesadillas, with chicken and capsicum in the centre bound together with gooey cheese, served with a side of creamy guacamole. Meanwhile, at RM38 the Provencal-inspired braised beef, with a side of crispy, salt-infused potato wedges may be one of the pricier dishes on the menu, but it’s also one of the best.
The brief drinks list consists of a selection of coffee, tea and fresh juices as well as select craft beers, while the briefer desserts list helps you in your choice to cap off the meal easily – our favourite is the lemon cheese cake.
