So, here I am at Bubba Gump Citta Mall for lunch with colleagues. Surprisingly, there were not many customers on that day, which was on a weekday. The staff looked energetic and lively, and we were attended to, almost immediately.
After browsing through the menu, we placed our orders for Scampi pasta (RM32.90), fried chicken (RM27.90), boat trash (RM44.90) which is to be shared among the four of us. We ordered their signature drinks – Mango Sparkler, Speckled Strawberry and Speckled Blueberry (RM12.90).
Our food was served quite fast, and the dishes were hot. Scampi pasta is actually an olio pasta dish with prawns, and comes with a big piece of toasted bread. The pasta tasted good, well-seasoned and cooked well (al dente). The Prawns were cooked just perfect. The boat trash is a combination of pieces of fish fillet, prawns, lobster tail and fries, all of which are deep fried, Bubba Gump style. I have had this dish since the day they started their business here in Malaysia. Somehow, I ‘feel’ that the portion has gone slightly ‘smaller’, perhaps in line with the higher food cost. The other dish we had was the fried chicken served with coleslaw, corn, and a scoop of mash potatoes. Overall, the food tasted good, and is more than sufficient to be shared among the 4 of us.
The signature drinks are bottomless (that means you can ask for unlimited refills for free). My favorite drink here is still Mango Sparkler, which is refreshing and a real thirst quencher. We had Mud Pie for desserts (RM22.90). It’s a big-sized dessert and can be shared with at least a few people. In my case, it was shared among the 4 of us, and yet we struggled to finish it. Yummy!
To sum it up, Bubba Gump is a good place to have meals with family and friends. Some of the dishes come in big portions, so do check with the staff before you place your orders. A number of the drinks are bottomless, which is good. The restaurant carries their signature look, which is standard across all other outlets here in Malaysia or internationally too.
How would I rate them? The atmosphere 4/5, Service 3.5/5, F&B 4/5.
