In the century-old, restored and hip hangout spot, Sentul Depot, you’ll find Tiffin At The Yard. Open from 5pm on Thursdays and Fridays, and from 10am on weekends, Tiffin will take your tastebuds on a gastronomic journey. The ever-changing vendors are all amazingly curated, creating a culinary playground for chefs to experiment, collaborate, and showcase their masterpieces.
Although the vendors rotate now and again, we thought we’d highlight some that have caught our attention. A few of these culinary experts and enthusiasts already have existing restaurants or businesses around the Klang Valley, so fret not if they’re not at Tiffin when you visit! Check out their website for the current vendors, so you’ll know what to expect.
The food here is pork-free, though they have two cocktail bars for those who enjoy a tipple. The wine and Tiger beer bars will usually feature drinks hand-picked by some of the top bartenders in Kuala Lumpur (KL), along with the occasional art and music events there. Follow them on Instagram for the latest updates on exciting events!
Payment terms here are cashless, so you needn’t worry about not having cash on hand. Now, without further ado, let’s look at some of the July talents at Tiffin and why you should sink your teeth into the fare.
1. Coopers by W1
W1 is no stranger in the Telawi, Bangsar neighbourhood. Coopers at Tiffin is W1’s newest endeavour, serving classic British comfort food. Nothing is more comforting than a traditional hot pie filled with minced beef, duck confit, or mushroom and spinach, served with mashed potato and gravy.
W1’s signature Scotch Egg is a must-try — the yellow molten egg yolk covered in a deep-fried golden brown beef crust. Mmm, we are already salivating.
2. DDCC (Dan Dan & Che Chem)

3. Flavours of the East
While this humble-looking plate of rice may look very simple, sometimes it’s the most basic thing in life that brings you ultimate comfort on a rainy day. Sizzled in a claypot dish, the smokiness and flavour of the spices come bursting through, making it the perfect bowl of soul food. Don’t believe us? Then we suggest giving it a try for yourselves.
4. Fratelli’s Pastificio
When translated, Fratelli’s Pastificio means ‘brother’s pasta factory’.

Making fresh pasta in Italy is a way of life, and this passionate duo wants to get that tradition of freshly-made pasta here for all to enjoy.

8. Leen’s Middle East Kitchen
At Leen’s, casual Middle Eastern food is served with a modern twist. Syrian chef, Alzalek, brings a taste of his hometown to you through eats like Pulled Lamb Toasties, Beef Shawarmas, and Charred Chilli Hummus. There is also Shawarma Fries, which is definitely not your standard shawarma wrap with fries in it.
Instead, it’s a bowl of deep-fried tater tots, topped with chicken shawarma freshly cut from the rotisserie, toum (Middle Eastern garlic sauce), chilli mayo, and jalapeño pesto salsa. Honestly, we’re already drooling just thinking about it.
10. Minus 4 Degrees
Some may disagree, but ice cream is the perfect dessert for ANY weather, and a food paradise like Tiffin is incomplete without it. Minus 4 Degrees was started by a mother-daughter duo, making artisanal ice cream out of passion and love for the culinary arts. You’ll find exciting flavours like Smoked Salmon and Peanut Gula Melaka here, and that’s just the tip of the ice(cream)-berg.
10. Phil’s Pizza
Nothing beats pizza when you can’t decide what to eat at a food court, and honestly, it’s one of the most versatile foods. Serving up New York-style pizzas at Tiffin is Phil’s Pizza!
