4. Secret Recipe Menu: Kid’s Chicken Burger (RM16.00)
Let’s not forget the kid’s menu items. Secret Recipe’s Kid’s Chicken Burger will put a smile on your little ones’ faces as they fill their bellies. It’s one of three kids’ menu items.
The dish features four mini chicken burgers. They’re garnished with sliced cucumber (way to sneak in the veggies). Of course, what burger dish is complete without a side of fries?

5. Secret Recipe Menu: The Red Velvet (Slice - RM11.80/ Whole RM130.00
No review of Secret Recipe is complete without having a look at the restaurant’s renowned cakes. Secret Recipe’s The Red Velvet is a decadent slice of enticing cake. Like the many variants of this popular treat, the cake is immediately identifiable by its famed vibrant red hue.
The chefs at Secret Recipe somehow create this color naturally (I guess it’s a secret how they do it). In the end, it’s a clever twist on a layered, velvety cream cheesecake.
The Red Velvet Cake is a staple of Secret Recipe’s menu and definitely worth trying.
It can prove hard not to give in to this decadent treat.
