Look Out Point Western Food, Ampang

Look Out Point is a famous place where you can observe the KL skyline from of course uphill while dining at fine restaurants. It is the favourite place for couples, during countdown or when bringing a non KL friends to hang out. Talking about this place, there is a huge changes from my previous visit with another bunch of friends those days years back. Now, there is a new parking system. Once enter, you need to pay RM 2 for parking. If you want to park at the uphill which is just about less than 10 m, you need to pay another RM 3. So, total is RM 5 for an uphill parking compared to those days FOC!! Otherwise, if you choose not to pay for the parking or the parking bays are full, just park your car outside the parking bays. There are no difference if you park at the ground level or at outside as both require you to climb stairs up to the hill. There are if not mistaken 4 restaurants here. Look for this restaurant if you are looking for cheaper and tastier food. Other restaurant include Gasoline and a Western style restaurant (forgot name) of which both are very expensive.
As seen, it serves Western and local cuisines.
The view from the restaurant. Luckily I managed to grab a table near the corner of the restaurant.
Same view different setting.
Sizzling mushroom lamb chop, RM 15.30.
French fries, RM 5.90.
Fried onion ring, RM 5.50.
Mango jelly lychee (if not mistaken)
Longan juices (S) RM 6.50, (L) RM 9.50
Lychee juice. Same price as longan juice but this is a small one.
Comparison of small and large serving.
Mango Soursop Guava Q Ball. Taste good!~
