Planet Hollywood, Kuala Lumpur

Yup, this is not something new. It has been in town for at least a decade now but this was our first visit to this well-known restaurant. After walking around Pavillion Kuala Lumpur and did not manage to find something that was within our budget, we headed to this Planet Hollywood. We were quite lucky as there was a promotion for Citibank credit card holder. There was 50% off for selected food on the menu.
Citibank Credit Card Special Menu
Santa Fe Nachos
We ordered Santa Fe Nachos (RM8.75 after 50% discount) as a starter. This crispy tortilla chips were topped with mixed cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, sour cream and jalapenos. It was a very generous serving and we should have treated it as main dish instead.
Anyway, as for the main dish, I had Baked Beef Pasta (RM13 after 50% discount) while LKC had the Southern Fried Chicken (RM26).
Baked Beef Pasta
Penne pasta tossed with cream cheese and tomato sauce, air flown minced beef and topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese then baked in the oven.
This pasta was rather bland to my taste. Maybe people are getting more health concious nowadays...less sugar, less salt. That's why all the food we had lately was rather tasteless.
Southern Fried Chicken
3 pieces of fresh chicken marinated with Planet Hollywood's seasoning then deep fried till crispy and served with Hollywood coleslaw and French fries
This fried chicken tasted nothing much special. Still the Kentucky "featherless" chicken tastes better.
Pool tables for you to have a game or two
Live-band stage
Buy 1 free 1 during Happy Hours
It was happy hours (until 9pm), so LKC ordered a pint of beer and got another one free-of-charge.
It was quite a cozy place to have a meal there (but do not expect good quality food) with friends or just to have some drinks while enjoying the performance from the live-band.
