I was told that the old Coliseum Cafe in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman was a popular spot amongst politicians and famous celebrities. With its new branch at Plaza 33, PJ folks can skip the heavy traffic in KL but still get to enjoy delicious and authentic Hainanese cuisine.

Coliseum Cafe is a popular dining spots. The cafe is fully packed during dinner time especially on weekends. We waited for around 30mins to be seated. Oh well, good food are worth the wait right?

The interior is similar to its KL branch’s old-fashioned colonial setting; wooden tables with white tablecloths and set with side plates and cutlery.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Cream of Mushroom Soup (RM9.90)

The mushroom soup is served with a slice of bread and butter. The soup is hot and flavorful, just the way I like it. Not bad I would say.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Supreme Chicken Cordon Bleu (RM28.90)

Supreme Chicken Cordon Bleu (RM28.90)

The Chicken Cordon Bleu is served with fries and salad. The chicken was a bit dry and tasteless. If there weren’t brown sauce and ham, I figure it’ll be completely tasteless. Texture is hard and dry, I figure it’s coz chicken breast is used.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM23.90)

Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM23.90)

The Hainanese Chicken Chop is superb! It’s definitely one of the best Hainanese Chicken Chop I’ve tasted thus far from the famous Yut Kee 益记餐室, Kluang Station and etc. The chicken drumstick is fried till golden brown and crispy while the batter that the chicken was coated in was delicious. The thick homemade sauce with ingredients like onions, mushroom, peas and etc was really flavorful and complemented the chicken chop really well. The Chicken Chop is served with crinkle cut fries and salad.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Sizzling Chateaubriand (RM70.90)

Sizzling Chateaubriand (RM70.90)

We opted for medium rare for this thick cut of beef tenderloin. This huge slab of chateaubriand is covered with creamy sauce and accompanied with a plate of wedges and salad. When the steak was served, be assured of a very enticing aroma. The texture of this luxurious chateaubriand is remarkably tender and will melt in your mouth.

Sizzling Chicken (RM27.90)

The sizzling chicken which is covered with mushroom sauce is served with fries and salad. The meat is tender and taste wise, it’s decent. I would prefer their Hainanese Chicken Chop.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Hainanese Fried Mee & Mee Hoon (RM15.90)

Hainanese Fried Mee & Mee Hoon (RM15.90)

We opted for a mixture of mee & mee hoon. At a glance, Hainanese fried noodles does in some way look similar to Hokkien Mee. It’s only when you taste it then you’ll know that it taste somewhat different. The Hainanese Fried Noodles has ingredients like fish cake, chicken slices and vegetables.

Coliseum Cafe & Grill Room @ Plaza 33, PJ : Banana & Chocolate Spring Roll (RM11.90)

Banana & Chocolate Spring Roll (RM11.90)

This banana & chocolate spring rolls with vanilla ice cream is the perfect dessert to end a yummy meal.

Verdict: Historic restaurant that offers unique dining experience. The place to go with family or friends for special occasions. Service is good despite large crowd. I would be back whenever I have cravings for Hainanese food.

This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
