I first tripped over the lovely Junk almost exactly a year ago, fell in love with the general welcoming vibe, tunes, food, cocktails...plus made a firm friend in top man, Prakash. So I knew it would be first on my list when I finally broke...out of KL CMCO this Christmas.
COVID has had an unfortunate effect on most of us, not least Junk, which has had to move (just a little bit!) round the corner, so if 401 Chulia Street is still showing as it is as I type this, do make sure you venture just a tiny bit further to 1, Jalan Pintal Tali. It's well worth it, I promise.
For food - burgers are it. I don't eat meat (so the Grilled Vegetable or The Great White both more than float my boat) but if you do, you're in burger heaven! And cocktails? Well.. I fondly remember the Bloody Mary sorting me right out just before the Langkawi ferry last year, but tonight I started with a classic Moscow Mule and then superstar bar guru, Prakash suggested I go off piste with his own creation - the Ginger Mojito. And proper lush it was too! To be clear, it's not on the menu, but I'm sure if you ask him nicely, and say hi from me, he'll do you one!
Can't rate Junk highly enough!More
