Marmalade Café @ Bangsar (Bangsar Village 2)
Now is always a good time to get satiate and energised with healhty meals but finding one that would please the entire family or everyone in the crowd is never an easy task. Not everyone is up for nutrition filled juices, and children sometimes still have tantrums getting their hands on the greens. Marmalade café in Bangsar Village caters to all and if you are ever stuck, pick from their all day brunch menu. The menu is simple, essentially great for picky eaters as well as those who simply need a comforting wholesome meal.
Jump on the detox bandwagon with their fresh juices and give yourself a nutritional upgrade. I love my Single Beetroot Juice (RM 12) although I doubt it is a crowd pleaser but beetroot lover and healthy conscious ones are going to love this as much as I do. Apart from juice mixes and milkshake smoothies, there are espresso brews as well as tea and some usual quenches commonly found in most cafes. Flat White (RM 12) is not any healthier than any other cuppa but it would help with the caffeine fix.
Although nothing said organic (not that I paid attention to) but there are no processed food, only real food to create hearty and comforting meals bursting with flavors. Marmalade combines great food with relaxed environment supplemented with a good child play area; the café feels very family and crowd friendly. I am very happy with their smoothie bowl, it wasn’t difficult to pick when there is the Berry Bliss (RM 20). Blueberries, strawberries and banana blended for base and topped with chia seeds, sliced bananas, and an assortment of berries.
Moving to the delicious brunch menu, Crab Cake Benedict (RM 32) gives you a beautifully poached egg covered in hollandaise sauce laid on a deck of crab cakes with seared tomatoes and grilled asparagus, along French onion and a crispy potato rosti.
Norwegian Bagel (RM 26) gets all the limelight the moment I sink my teeth into smoked salmon sandwiched between a toasted poppy seed bagel, nicely flavoured with a spread of zesty cream cheese, accompanied with pickled cucumber and red radish.
There is so much on the menu that I wanted to try but there were only two of us and to avoid food wastage, we decided to hit on Salmon Laksa (RM 29) and Garlic Basil Pesto (RM 26) and the both totally score with the texture of the chewy udon noodle and al dante spaghetti. Udon here sits in spicy laksa broth with plenty of salmon chuicnks, diced pumpkins, beancurd puffs and topped with shredded cucumber and onions. Garnished with mint leaves for a beautiful finishing. And as for the pesto pasta, they are all coated in pesto and smashed broccoli, tossed with cherry tomatoes, and topped with baked parmesan. Pesto and broccoli in fantastic ratio along with the garlic and pine nuts, this combination is nothing but superb.
This is such a good place for delicious meal that offers a selective choice for metabolic reset to get you to a healthier lifestyle. Special thanks to Lisa for inviting- I wouldn’t have another favourite place to go now if it weren’t for this invitation.
