Black Canyon Coffee, Centre Point, PJ

Have been rather busy, sorry for the lack of updates..
And issues with Internet connection didn't help at all..
Was rummaging my old pictures and managed to find some photos when I ate at Black Canyon..
A franchise from Thailand, Black Canyon is an asian version of coffee chains; serving coffees and fusion Thai meals..
Hazelnut Coffee (RM8.95) I find it a tad sweet, still, it's pretty good nonetheless.
The iced Mocha (RM8.95) Combination was pretty good, again, a little too sweet for me.
Their Iced Coffee (RM7.95) was nice though..Cooling coffee with a nice scattering of coffee flakes; giving a lovely bitter aftertaste that I like..
Black Canyon's meal menu consists of fusion Thai, western and some snacks.
Their Chicken Salad (RM8.90) looks pretty good. SM said it was ok, and was glad that the chicken breast moist and tender. The greens were fresh too, though the portion may be small for those who prefers something more substantial..
The fusili with tuna (RM9.90, lunch set) was forgettable.. The fusili was stir fried with tuna flakes, tomyam paste, baby corn and herbs. Somehow, I did not it a satisfying meal and the portion was rather small too.
The seafood spaghetti (RM8.90) looks better..The spaghetti was al-dente, stri fried with prawns, squid rings, tuna flakes, baby corn and herbs. The sauce was rather sweet, with hints of tomyam..
We had this stir fried pasta with crunchy basil leaves..The nicest amongst the 3 we tried, but somehow, I've forgotten it's name :(. Can only real that it's in the lunch set.
There's also ala carte dishes which you can order to go with rice..
We ordered the lunch set (RM24.90 for 3 dishes and rice) to try out some dishes..The lemongrass salad was a 'like it or hate it' dish. I thought it was a refreshing salad as I always like raw onions/ shallots..Tossed with tomatoes, peanuts, chopped lemongrass, tuna flakes and drizzled with a sweet, spicy and sour concoction; this salad is real appetizing.
The Tomyam.. Not the type I like. Creamier, sweet and sour version. Loaded with lots of ingredients though. Bollywood Queen was lapping it up nicely though..
Stir fried chicken with cashewnuts..
Very much like kung pow chicken, the chicken pieces were tender, goes well with the sweet onions, mushrooms and cashewnuts. Nice dish to go with rice. Then again, RM24.90 for these dishes, guess I cant complaint much..
Black Canyon is a place to chill with friends while sipping a cup of coffee with reasonably priced meals. Food is not fantastic, but is better than a nearby franchised coffee place (if you want to have coffee and meals , that is).
Black Canyon is located at Lot 3 & 3A, Ground Floor, Centre Point, Lebuh Bandar Utama, 47800, PJ.

It is in BKK, I was just there last week and saw it. It didn't have that many customers in there, compared to the one in Centerpoint which is always packed!
