Kota Damansara is known to be a food haven and eateries are aplenty here. Along with the host of restaurants and cafés, there are also a multitude of dishes to choose from. Sometimes, skimming through their menu alone would be enough to give one a headache because we would most certainly be spoilt for choice.

Trying out their signature dishes would then be a safe bet. Here are 10 eateries in Kota Damansara and their signature dishes as per what’s recommended by past guests.

They put together blocks of toasts to form a tower, and then decorate them with icing and cream. These are stuff of a sugar addict’s dreams.
