Good news folks! Introducing FamilyMart – the new Japanese convenience store franchise chain that set foot in Malaysia. The first Malaysia’s store franchise is available in Kuala Lumpur since November 2016. We visited FamilyMart outlet at Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur.
A little bits on the history, FamilyMart is a Japanese convenience store franchise chain first opened in Japan on September 1, 1981. In Japan is currently 2nd largest convenience store chain, behind 7-Eleven.
FamilyMart also have franchise stores in the Philippines, Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia, Taiwan, China, the United States, and Vietnam. It is a fast and strong growing convenience store franchise chain. In October 2013, FamilyMart opened its 10,000th store in Japan.
In FamilyMart Malaysia, you can find basic grocery items, magazines, soft drinks, alcoholic drinks, fried chicken, Japanese food, onigiri, and bento. It is so convenient as many food are ready to be enjoyed instantly and best of all – it is delivered daily for surpassing freshness. Even more with ability to pay your bills and even send parcels.
Oden (关东煮) – A Japanese dish consisting of several ingredients such as boiled eggs, daikon, konjac, and processed fishcakes stewed in a light, soy-flavored dashi broth.
Besides tasting their Oden, we also tried their Matcha ice-cream and French Vanilla ice cream! Inside the shop, we also found other specialties like Onigiri, Japanese pudding, breads, desserts, bento, Nasi Lemak and etc.
The staff is friendly here, but do expect to wait for payment due to many customers.
