Have some pancakes while you wait for your flight at Nanny’s Pavillon.

THE next time you are in KLIA2, you may want to pop into Nanny’s Pavillon — a French-inspired American pancake restaurant which originated from Indonesia.

Established in March 23, 2009 in Bandung, Nanny’s Pavillon has since expanded to 13 eateries in Indonesia.

The restaurant has opened its 14th eatery and the first in Malaysia at KLIA2.

Located at the International Departure on the mezzanine floor, the restaurant features three travel-inspired dining zones.

There is a lounge area with custom-made suitcase-seats for those who want comfort, another section with baggage-cart sofas for jetlagged travellers to sit back or even take a nap before departure, and the central dining zone for those looking for a quick bite.

The restaurant was inspired by Nanny Anella, a fictional nanny from Provence, France who cooks sumptuous meals for her family.

Each family member has their own preference, which is reflected in the menu.

Heavy Alvin’s Potato (RM10), deep fried potato slices served with chilli, mozarella and meat sauce, is my kind of comfort food.

Ynez’s Blueberry Cheese Roll Pancake (RM16) is a sinful treat with its cream cheese filling, topped with blueberry sauce and ice-cream.

Those who like spicy food should try Cecile’s Hot Tuna Spaghetti (RM18).

Also served was Robert’s Spaghetti Olio Mushroom (RM16), which has portobello mushroom lightly sauteed in olive oil and garlic.

The Maple Glazed Chicken Skewers With Spanish Wild Rice (RM18) is good for those who want something filling.

On choosing KLIA2 as its first overseas eatery, marketing general manager Kevin Cheung said: “KLIA2 is not just an airport terminal but a destination mall for the public.

“We wanted to create brand awareness for our future expansions.

“There are plans for another restaurant in the city centre with a full service menu,” he said.

“We find that the customers in Malaysia share similar taste profile as those in Indonesia.

“Furthermore, Indonesians frequently travel to Malaysia, hence we share the same market.

“Our target market includes teenagers and young families who are lifestyle-oriented and like to enjoy good food in a pleasant ambience,’’ said Cheung.

The restaurant features custom-made furniture, produced in Indonesia, that looks like luggage.

Director Anna Leong said they were drawn to Nanny’s Pavillon’s concept.

“When we came across Nanny’s Pavillon three years ago, we fell in love with the pancakes, the concept and the uniform,” she said.

Taking into consideration the dietary restrictions of Malaysia’s multi-cultural population, some changes were made to the menu.

“As Hindus and some Chinese do not eat beef, we offer chicken instead of beef for some of the items. We offer choices for vegetarians too.

“No preservatives are used and we make our own ice-creams and sauces,” she said.

Nanny’s Pavillon’s interior design is another pull factor.

The decor here is a departure from its sister restaurants in Indonesia with French-style interiors with gardens-inspired designs.

“There are different designs for each eatery.

“For the restaurant here, we have custom-made furniture that looks like luggage, which was made in Indonesia,” Leong said.

Even though the restaurant was only launched in July, it has quite a following.

It is also a popular venue for birthday celebrations; and it was even the venue for a marriage proposal.

The restaurant can seat 150 people.
