Da:mén

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Shopping -

1 Per­siaran Ke­wa­ji­pan, USJ 1, Subang Jaya (03 8020 7828/ www.da-men.com). De­scribed as an ‘Asian life­style mall’, da:mén (Man­darin for ‘big door’) is largely in­spired by Ja­panese cul­ture. Myr­iad stores pay homage to the Land of the Ris­ing Sun, such as Milkissimo, a gela­te­ria from Hokkaido; Can­make, which stocks makeup and cos­met­ics from Tokyo; and Aliba, a Ja­panese food court. There’s even a Wish Tree on the fourth floor where shop­pers may pen down their as­pi­ra­tions on lit­tle slips of pa­per and tie them to the branches of the ar­ti­fi­cial sakura tree, im­i­tat­ing a pop­u­lar pas­time in Ja­pan.

If the kids get hun­gry and cranky, lead them to The Can­teen, a child­friendly food court of­fer­ing pizza, chicken rice, oys­ter omelettes, sa­tay skew­ers and more. Af­ter plac­ing your or­der, you’ll be given an elec­tronic de­vice that starts beep­ing when your food is ready, al­low­ing you to wan­der around for a bit. In ad­di­tion to a kids play area, there are book­shelves car­ry­ing chil­dren’s picture books and board games to while away the time. Daily, 10am-10pm.
