Traffic D’light Cafe @ Dataran Pelangi Utama

Fancy some good food at a cheap price? Let me introduce Traffic D’light Cafe, located at Dataran Pelangi Utama. The cozy cafe is located nearby my college hostel and has been a great place for a good meal. Cheap and Yummy! Air- conditioned and having both smoking and non-smoking dining area is simply great.

The cafe is located on the 1st floor of Dataran Pelangi Utama right above Carrefour Express. Accessible by lift and stairs. Since I am not familiar with the directions of getting there, I would skip writing on that part to avoid misleading info. Apologies to all dear readers. There have been many reviews from bloggers on Traffic D’light. Just try to Google traffic dlight.

There is a wide variety of food and beverages. And here’s a couple of reviews on those that I have tried so far.

Main Entries


Milk Butter Prawn Rice

Scrumptious fresh prawns in milky butter sauce with basil leaves served with rice. Its yummy and has a rather milky taste. Quite a big portion for me. The sauce is really nice and goes well with the prawns.

Price: RM 9.50

Rating: 4/5


Milk Butter Chicken Fillet Rice

Similar to the Milk Butter Prawn Rice above, the chicken fillet is served with milk butter gravy and rice. Quite tasty and rather a big portion.

Price: RM 8.50

Rating: 4/5



Crispy Mayonnaise Calamari Fried Rice

Stir fried rice served with batter coated deep fried squid rings. As a seafood lover, I love the calamari rings. Quite yummy.

Price: RM 9.50

Rating: 3.5/5



Crispy Mayonnaise Fish Fillet Fried Rice

Fried rice served with batter-coated deep fried fish fillets dressed with mayonnaise. Yummy and a big portion. Fish fillets are sometimes a little oily. Taste quite yummy but batter could be improved.

Price: RM 9.00

Rating: 3.5/5



Sizzling Black Pepper Pork Slice Rice

Thinly sliced pork cooked in black pepper sauce served on a sizzling plate. The dish is extremely yummy. The sauce goes well with the poultry. Reminder: Do ask for more sauce if you want to have some gravy for your rice.

Price: RM 8.50

Rating: 4.5/5


Stir-Fried Homemade Noodles

Homemade noodles stir-fried with minced chicken, prawns and bean sprouts. Prawns are extremely large and the portion is generous. Great for a filling meal. The additional sambal served with it is spicy and nice.

Price: RM 7.50

Rating: 4.5/5


Traffic D’light Bird Nest (Braised Meat Ball Noodles)

New addition to the menu! Noodles are shaped like a bird nest. Served with mushroom and vegetables. The meat balls are succulent and juicy with a strong taste. The mushroom is my favourite. The gravy goes well with the noodles and meat ball.

Price: RM 10.00

Rating: 4.5/5



Bak Kut Teh Noodle Soup

Noodles in bak kut teh served with pork meat and vegetables. The pork has slight too much of fat composition for my liking. I prefer meat with less fats, so not really a favourite of mine. Though a friend of mine loves this dish.

Price: RM 8.50

Rating: 3.5/5



Crispy Fried Mushroom

Batter coated fried oyster mushroom fried to perfection. Served with Thai Chilli sauce, its a great savoury appetizer to start a meal. I like the mushroom but it is sometimes too oily.

Price: RM 4.00

Rating: 4/5


Crispy Salted Egg Pumpkin

My all time favourite! Coated with a batter of salted egg and deep fried to perfection. Love the taste of pumpkin. I was fooled into thinking it was sweet potato. The taste of pumpkin is sweet and the salted egg coated gives a really nice aroma to this snack. Irresistible and I would always love more of this.

Price: RM 4.50

Rating: 5/5

Beverages & Desserts



A cooling dessert with shredded ice flakes and gula Melaka syrup. Neither too sweet nor too plain. Taste wonderful and reminds me a lot about of the cendul in Penang. Lovely hint of home.

Price: RM 4.oo

Rating: 4.5/5


Winter melon & Longan

A Chinese tong swee (dessert) cooked to perfection with longan and winter melon strips. Served hot or cold. The cold dessert is thirst quenching. Winter melon strips are overcooked and lacks texture, often too soft and feels like mashed winter melon instead. Still a nice dessert though.

Price: RM 3.50 (hot), RM 3.80 (cold)

Rating: 3.5/5


Snow Fungus & Sea Coconut

Another Chinese dessert. I like the taste and the cooling effect it has. The snow fungus is soft and well cooked. Worth trying. Yummy!

Price: RM 3.50 (hot), RM 3.80 (cold)

Rating: 4/5


Raspberry Longan

A nice soda drink with raspberry flavour with longan. I’m not a big fan of sodas so not really up to my liking though I love the longan.

Price: RM 4.50

Rating: 3.5/5

Yee Sang

Besides that, there was also Yee Sang served during the Chinese New Year period. I previously blog on this but since my blog was deleted its no longer available. Yee Sang is considered an auspicious meal eaten during Chinese New Year and many may also refer it to Loh Sang. Would gladly say that the Yee Sang here taste good as compared to some restaurants back in my hometown, Penang. Here’s some snapshots of the Yee Sang me and my friends had. A traditional meal in a modern place. Unfortunately, I do not remember the price.



Saw the RM0.10 dessert with any of the 7-Wonders meal? Amazing deal! I would be going for it soon. And look to your left. NETT prices for all meal. No pocket killing service charge and tax. The part I like best is the 10% discount of total bill upon ordering any of the 7-Wonders. Try now as offers for RM0.10 dessert last until 14 November 2010 only and the 10% off total bill is only up till end of 2010.


All in all, the food is superb with some becoming my all-time favourite. The service is good and the staff are really friendly. A meal in Traffic D’light has been enjoyable even with a big group of friends as they have ample space in the cafe. Some dishes reminds me of home cooked food which brings that warm nostalgic feeling to heart despite the distance from home. A great place to dine for a reasonable price.

Traffic D’light opens daily from 12 noon to 10pm. It is air-conditioned and has wi-fi. Finding a parking space should not be a problem as there are parking lots around Dataran Pelangi Utama.
