Fusion Haven @ Sri Petaling
Hidden within the scuffy enclave of Sri Petaling, the Fusion Haven brings home closer than you can ever imagined with their friendly staffs and owner and a range of far-reaching fusion dishes. The Fusion Haven fuses all possible combination of flavours hence creating fusion of culinary at a different dimension-a blissful haven. Something like no other and probably the best fusion experience one can indulge.
Kick starting the fusion feast with an amazing Fusion Mango Salad (RM 13.90) served inside crackling crunch of a crispy basket and if that doesn’t trigger the saliva gland, I don’t know what does. Bedded beautifully in the basket with some fresh lettuce, apple tartar, tangy sweet and fragrant mango, topped with raisins and pumpkin seeds for a better texture, the mix of these were almost divine especially when all ingredients used are fresh.
Then, bringing some warmth to the appetite is the Cream of Mushroom Soup Topped with Pastry. This homemade fresh mushroom soup baked with puff pastry sells at a reasonable RM 9.90, given the effort of the pastry hat. And that probably is the only admirable point to the otherwise bland and ordinary looking bowl of soup.
They hit that big score when the Salusciccia Grilled Portobello Mushroom was served. This Italian style grilled fresh Portobello mushroom stuffed with homemade pork meat and breadcrumbs might have appeared slightly exclusive with RM 19.90, but the plump sized mushroom with incredibly rich and moist stuffing is absolutely breath taking.
And just as I am succumbing to the appetizers, fusion gets to paramount approach when the California Unagi Rice Noodle Roll was served. The mix of all possible texture and flavour renders the most interesting combination. This tempura style fried rice noodle rolled with unagi, dressed with teriyaki sauce and topped with ebiko and colourfully garnished with lettuce and edamame is selling at RM 18.90. The aroma of seaweed and unagi plus the texture of crispy tempura and the spongy chew or rice noodle sheet rolled within is a clever fuse but if with addition of a solid texture in it would be genius.
After the chinese-Japanese fuse, there is the delightful Korean Style Kimchi Sausage Omelets rice. There is rice and teriyaki sauce topped with egg and pork sausages, kimchi, leeks, seaweed, ebiko and a sprinkle of sesame for RM 8.90 each. Mixed them all and the flavours would take you to a different dimension. Should the ingredients be at the top freshness always would this be an ambrosial experience.
The Carbonara is this Italian inspired creamy spaghetti with bacon, eggs and parmesan cheese which was adjusted to very much suit the local patrons but least to my liking when it comes soft texture of the pasta. While that also applies to the Smoked Duck Pomodoro Alfredo the tender smoked duck meat did infused the creamy pasta sauce to make this irresistible. The creamy pasta with mushrooms, tomato puree, and wine and parmesan cheese serves at moderate portion and hardly relenting. The pastas sell at RM 16.90 and RM 23.90 respectively.
The American Fusion Style BBQ Pork Spare Ribs sells at RM 39.90 and serves as a grilled pork ribs with fries and salad and this lovely fruity BBQ sauce. The sauce is almost immense with linger of flavours that roams in your mouth. The pork however was a disappointment. The minimum bar to good food is fresh ingredient but the meat was flaky and distinguishable over thawing smell from meat definitely perplexed the very finickle eater.
The menu is very extensive and there is obviously something for the communal eating. I was impressed with the use of banana instead of pineapple in a Hawaiian pizza but it was a bold choice of fusion that remarkably bedazzled me. The sweet of banana and savoury of everything else with those effort strips of lettuce as garnish is obviously venerable. Comes in this Hawaiian style turkey ham and banana pizza, topped with mozzarella and cheddar cheese, dressed with special marinara sauce on top of the awesome charcoal crust and sells at RM 26.90.
The dessert range is something to be bragged as well. Melt your heart with the Warm Hearted Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream where you get a bursting flow of hot lava chocolate from inside a otherwise ordinary chocolate cake and feel the combustion when hot meets the cold vanilla ice cream. Weirdy garnished with pumpkin seeds, this dessert sells at RM 7.90 each. Now doesn’t the plate remind you of home?
Pudding lovers, behold the smooth caramel pudding made of brown sugar, eggs, milk, cream and fruit marmalade which offers a slight touch of cloying from the marmalade and balanced with the mild pudding.
Their range of beverage is nothing to show off but they range RM 5.90 for Honey Longan and RM 5.50 for the Green Tea.
