Foodieville at the Melawati Mall

 

The new super-regional Mall of Melawati represents the heart of Melawati– a township developed on a scale beyond just leisure and business. Not only is it a natural meeting point for business and leisure, as well as a preferred recreation venue for families and friends, it is also the one stop for foodies. The mall is positioned to be an iconic lifestyle hub, located in Taman Melawati, adjacent to residential areas of Wangsa Maju, Built Antarabangsa, Taman Permara, Kemensah Heights, and of course the Taman Melawati.

 

With accessibility from 5 major highways (Duke, MRR2, Karak, AKLEH, and the future KLORR) and LRT stops, this joint development of CapitaLand and Sime Darby sure promises plenty of excitement.

 

Opened on 26 July 2017, Melawati Mall has formed the iconic hub and with substantial anchor tenants, a carefully selected retail mix, and a wide diversity of food and beverages, we are looking at a shopping experience crafted for foodie like me. The recent Foodville makanlicious food hunt organised by the mall to showcase their partner restaurants was a great success and we covered six restaurants within the mall in a day, it was a blessing.

Starting with the Jamaica Blue cafe and named after the Blue Mountain in Jamaica, they take pride in the 2 types of coffee beans – the Jamaica Blue Signature Blend, and the Jamaica Blue Mountain. Both the award winning coffee and the world’s best coffee were delivered perfectly alongside the fabulous food. Perfect to start the day, their Signature Harvest Menu really captured my attention. We all know I love starting the day right with the right food. And this Super Fruit Bowl (RM 19.90) and the Enrichment Bowl (RM 19) is probably also a fabulous choice for fitness enthusiast. And don’t miss out both the award winning coffee and the world’s best coffee were delivered perfectly alongside the fabulous food.

Second stop brought us to the best of cuisine that is truly unique as a heritage of Malaysia. Baba Nyonya by Sambal- chili offers the wide selection of rich spices and herbs with dishes prepared upon order for their diners to ensure the freshness of each dish. Combining Chinese wok and claypot into local rempah, Chef Rimong made sure that the rich culinary flavour is delivered in their Peranakan dishes. Homey and comforting, the dishes were packed with flavours we are all familiar with. The dishes are not the only thing that’s capturing the heritage of Malaysia. The interior and paintings on the wall is equally as heart-warming. Check out their batik prints on their menu. Every piece of menu has a unique piece of batik cloth on it.

With their beautifully painted dining room, the décor in this next stop may be slinky and contemporary, but is serving a good value, including a lovely selection for both ala carte and communal dining. Must have is the steam fish. It is marvelously comprehensive with a blend of all sour, spicy, salty, sweet delicious clear broth with the plump white fillet submerging in it. Dishes at the Tiger Lily are designed for Thai food lover with menu built around familiar street food as well as some signatures of Thailand flavour.

With an open kitchen parading and showcasing the flow of your burger preparation right from where the meats are grinded and patties are grilled and assembled into stacks and layers of meats and cheese and buns and lettuces. Served with their fresh potato chips, every bite of the burger will be elevated with the texture of those crispy chips. Wayback Burger has landed in Malaysia and apart from the many fnbs that I’ve reviewed for the recent foodieville, there is no way I would let this slide and this one is the exciting one that I was really looking forward to during the restaurant hopping session. Meat is very fresh and delicious when I had it, and the buns are what’s different from many burger chains in town. In fact, they are probably the few that does their burger buns in such. Burger bun is grilled with butter and inverted so be ready to have all fingers greasy when eating the Cheeeesy Burger (RM 22.99). This is the signature and with double patties and 4 slices of cheddar cheese, you either love the flavours or you hate it.

The last stop was a real down-home deal, a masterful comfort food with a quality coffee brewed with single origin imported from Gayo Highland’s Acheh Indonesia. Be it the gorgeous alfresco area or its stunning rustic contemporary mix of atmosphere; don’t let this modern design deter you because it doesn’t burn a hole in your wallet.

Of course, the food savouring isn’t complete without some sweet delights. And what is better than a sharing bowl with varies balls of creamy and flavoursome ice cream scoops from Swensen’s? Good old solid ice creams with many flavours to choose from and offering not only ice cream, there are comfort casual meals as well. This one is the Earthquake Sundae with eruptions for presentations!!

Be Sixth Comfort Food @ Melawati Mall

 

The last stop at my recent visit to the Melawati Mall is a real down-home deal, a masterful comfort food with a quality coffee brewed with single origin imported from Gayo Highland’s Acheh Indonesia. Be it the gorgeous alfresco area or its stunning rustic contemporary mix of atmosphere; don’t let this modern design deter you because it doesn’t burn a hole in your wallet. We are looking at brunch serving till 4pm and plenty of hearty and delicious dishes made to order. Start with tasty bites like Nachos and Quinoa & Mango Salad before digging into their modern plating of comforting meal options.

The main spotlight, however, should be the protein choices like the Beef lasagna and Rib Eye which either gets a roast and bake in oven and served as main or those that topped over al dante pasta coated with intensely flavourful pasta sauce. Also, who could resist those beautifully baked eggs? It is really wonderful that brunch serves till 4pm.

Tiger Lily Thai Restaurant @ Melawati Mall

 

Dishes at the Tiger Lily are designed for Thai food lover with menu built around familiar street food as well as some signatures of Thailand flavour. Sample some of the usual Thai dishes, along with stalwarts like red rubbies and pad thai – all stylishly presented. Among what was sampled at the Foodieville are delicious steam fish with lime and pad thai plus the Lemon grass chicken.

I thought their rendition of Thai ice tea was a little sweet to my liking but it did got me thinking of those I had during my recent trip to Bangkok.

Baba Nyonya by Sambal- chili @ Melawati Mall

 

No need to scratch your head when it comes to dining in Melawati Mall. The choices are so diverse one is spoilt with the wide selection. Scratch your head deciding what to order instead when it comes to the dishes that represents the heritage of Malaysia. The best of cuisine that is truly unique as a heritage of Malaysia is probably the Baba Nyonya dishes. Baba Nyonya by Sambal- chili offers the wide selection of rich spices and herbs with dishes prepared upon order for their diners to ensure the freshness of each dish.

Combining Chinese wok and claypot into local rempah, Chef Rimong made sure that the rich culinary flavour is delivered in their Peranakan dishes. Homey and comforting, the dishes were packed with flavours we are all familiar with. The dishes are not the only thing that’s capturing the heritage of Malaysia. . The interior and paintings on the wall is equally as heart-warming. Check out their batik prints on their menu. Every piece of menu has a unique piece of batik cloth on it. From the piping hot and savoury spicy claypot of Assam Pedas to the Sambal Petai Prawn and the kangkung Belacan, these dishes were delicious and goes fantastic with some white rice.

And just for the love of fried egg, the Cencalok Omelette is with no doubt on my “repeat order” list. The edges were crisp and textured just nice to balance the soft fluffiness of the egg. Also on the frying mode and the add-on-to-the-mains list is the Chicken Lobak. It could be good for nibbling but above all is Ayam Goreng Berempah that got my attention. Inside the meat was tender and juicy albeit looking a little dry. But hey, don’t let this fool you because it was delicious.

But if you love Peranakan dishes, the Chicken Pong Teh is not too shabby when it comes to generously portioned serving size. Serving hot in a claypot, the pieces of chicken submerging at the rich gravy will be a lovely companion for the white rice. And speaking of claypots, the fish is equally astounding and to be very honest was beyond my expectations. But nothing beats having a completely balanced meal with their vegetable dishes. I love the Kangkung very much- it was young plant and cooked to perfection at the correct timing to not ruin the texture of the green and still having that little bit of crunch in every bite. Plus, it wasn’t greasy despite the load of chili. Thumbs up for this one.

Lastly, don’t forget to treat yourself a little better sometimes for the most perfect meal isn’t complete without the desserts. Serving on the dessert menu is the Banana Fritters and Cendol. Myself is more of a fan or the later instead of the first but if you like breaded deep fried bananas, there is no reason to not order it.

Jamaica Blue Café at Melawati Mall

 

The latest Jamaica Blue Café at the Melawati Mall is one with serenity in a casual relaxing vibe to consistently deliver the unique identity of the brand itself. Named after the Blue Mountain in Jamaica, they take pride in the 2 types of coffee beans – the Jamaica Blue Signature Blend, and the Jamaica Blue Mountain. Both the award winning coffee and the world’s best coffee were delivered perfectly alongside the fabulous food. Perfect to start the day, their Signature Harvest Menu really captured my attention.

If we are aiming at something slightly more savoury and flavourful, there is the Buttermilk Chicken and Corn Pie (RM 15.90) with tender pieces of chicken and sweet kernels of corn in a smooth creamy sauce, encased in a delicious flaky pastry. This one is served piping hot and is apparently freshly baked in-house. Same goes with the Chicken and Pumpkin Lasagne (RM 24.90) for those seeking comfort in food, this one is served hot and deliciously held together in layers of pasta sheets, chicken, pumpkin, semi dried tomato pesto, ricotta, baby spinach and mozzarella cheese,

For snacking and to replenish that quick sugar rush in between meals, (I know… I have that occasionally) there is the Zucchini and Feta Fritters s (RM 15.90) served with tomato chutney and salad garnish; or their sweet treats namely the Jamaican Queen (RM 15) and the Jamaica Blue Mountain Special (RM 15.90).
