Mona by Jibril

Those who live around Subang will vouch for the mouth-watering buttermilk dishes over at Jibril. If you live around Mont Kiara, you should know that Mona is helmed by the same team behind Jibril. It’s no wonder their buttermilk chicken tastes so familiar. Star dishes are the Salted Egg Butter Chicken, and if you’re craving for options, squid and prawn are available too. And if you’re not in the mood for plain white rice, go ahead and switch it up with nasi lemak.
