Review: Elsie’s Kitchen @ Happy Mansion Section 17 Petaling Jaya

On the recommendation of AD, hunting for lunch spots brought us to Elsie’s Kitchen at Happy Mansion in PJ. Tucked in a corner, the place is still new and still has congratulatory garlands decorating its entrance.

The interior is very basic; almost canteen-like.

There are several affordable set lunches to choose from, most of which are porky-themed.

JW’s Mee Siam (RM9.90 – comes with lemonade drink). The portion was generous and the noodles tasty, but it needs a tad more salt and moisture.

I went for the curry pork rice (RM13.90). Rice came draped in a beautiful sunny side up egg. The pork was nice and tender, but again, needed a bit more salt to make it perfect.

Also ordered a side of roast pork belly (RM18) to share. This was divine – nice balance of fat and lean, and the skin was extremely crispy. Loved the mustard dip it came served with.

AD’s pork chop was not part of the lunch set and quite pricey for the small portion (RM19.80). Didn’t try but looked rather dry.

All in all, a decent lunch spot to satisfy porky cravings.

  • Food: 7/10
  • Ambience: 7/10 basic, no frills but comfy
  • Service: Very fast and friendly. 8/10
