Afternoon Tea @ Fritz Brasserie (Ground Floor, Wolo Hotel)

 

Privileged to be tasting the new addition from my favourite dining establishment, there is absolutely nothing quite like the indulgence of the lovely Afternoon Tea especially when it is with some friends I haven’t seen in a while. Fritz Brasserie at Ground level of Wolo Hotel is now serving these tiers of sweet and savoury dainty bite sized treats featuring their new menu of delectable bites like the chicken curry kapitan with cilantro mayo and a smoked salmon croissant, as well as a variety of sweets, including their newest range of Baby Cakes. Being invited to taste the new serving, it was the perfect and most wonderful excuse to sit through the middle of the afternoon and leisurely sip through your tea or coffee.

Serving high tea daily from 3-6pm and for RM 55+ per person, this is including a pot of tea of your choice, or if you’d prefer coffee. I personally love tea at tea sessions and appreciates the art of afternoon tea very much despite the higher sugar content in general. But the art of afternoon tea has gradually from where it is originated became what we seemed as a fashionable indulgence. Even more so when it quickly spread from common tea rooms to the garden. Here in Fritz Brasserie, things are better with the first-class services from their meticulously well-dressed service crew, in the overwhelmingly decorated interior at the establishment. This no – nonsense modern European designed establishment with grand chandelier over the space with high ceiling and tall window panes would be the ideal place providing calm and serenity to keep those hunger pangs in between lunch and dinner at bay.

Hands and Heart @ Bangkok, Thailand

 

Beyond their instagrammble white lay out, this coffee spot delivers for those serious about their brew. An understated coffee bar with minimal seating, it’s probably not the best place to linger but serious coffee drinkers will find this an essential destination for the passion of coffee brewing is hard core at this cafe. While coffee bean from various origins are part and parcel of this impressive coffee bar, there is one particular item on the menu that caught my heart, soul and everything or anything you can probably think off to have me returning again.

Myself could come up with reasons more than you can shake a stick at to revisit for their Kombucha Coffee. Being a huge fan of Kombucha mainly because of that unique and pleasant taste on top of the beneficial factors, the coffee Kombucha here is probably the best I have ever had so far. And to make it worst now that I am back home, I’ve not found any place in Malaysia with coffee Kombucha half as close to this one that I’ve had here in Hands and Heart Bangkok. Oh well…looks like I am visiting Bangkok again real soon.

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.

2.Be Sixth Comfort Food @ Melawati Mall

 

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.

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).

Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2, Bangsar

 

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.
5.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

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.

 

1.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

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.

 

2.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

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.

 

3.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

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.

 

4.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

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.

Chocha Foodstore KL

 

Chocha Foodstore in the heart of kl is another addition to the retro hipster café trend that is good for a cultural fix. With the vintage ambiance and preserved architecture, the retro décor takes a journey of nostalgic trip back in time into this piece of local history. Every corner displays such amazing lighting that is absolutely perfect for photo taking; this once upon a time a hotel has quickly flood all social media platforms with shots of every corner of their beautiful spaces.

Their mash-up of Chinese and Western dishes inspired by local ingredients makes it unabashedly a fusion café eatery that cooks up brave and unconventional dishes. Although a letdown, their Cucumber Salad (RM 15) Kyuri cucumber, green apple, semi dried tomato and lettuce with cumin vinaigrette seemed to cool down the hot weather and serves as a great appetizer. Otherwise let their sharing snack that has been getting all rave impress you with that lovely coating evenly enveloping juicy bites of flavoursome shrimp sauce marinated chicken. Cincalok Fried Chicken with summer salsa (RM 25) is accompanied by tomato and pineapple salsa as well as the house tomato chutney.

Another highlight was a properly luxurious tea servings that came partnered with warm roasted chestnuts. Their tea is bucketloads of Chinese indulgence balanced with hippie and trendy pairing with their dishes. Not to worry if you are no tea connoisseur because menu displays description of their tea leaves. Shui Hsien tea (RM 18) meaning narcissus or water sprite is an Oolong tea from Mount Wuyi in Fujian Province, China with a heavy honey fragrance. Cheaper varieties are grown elsewhere in the province and have a burnt taste. Lapsang Souchong (RM 16), is the first black tea appeared in the tea history. This is also the original tea of Earl Grey. Tea is produced from Fujian Province of China. In addition to its smoky aroma, it gives a dried long aroma.

They are not pretentious with ingredients and uses some of the ingredients that represented the locals pretty well so you’d also see some familiar ingredients like kailan. Apart from slightly salty, what seemed to appear a little cloying looking is actually not at all a disaster; in contrary, this creamy stir fried kailan was uniquely enjoyable. 

7.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

8.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

Then when you talk about unique, I have already attempted several times to remake the Ulam stew Barley rice (RM 28). The fresh aroma from the ulam pesto balanced the custardy flavour from the blanket of shaved salted egg on top of the bed of barley and sautéed fresh squid with crispy dried shrimp so well that this one is like nothing I’ve ever seen anywhere else. But, I would probably swap the squid with cod fish if I am making this again.

But then again, they are not all phenomenal when it comes to being authentic and ingenious. The Biang Biang inspired Noodle (RM 16) wasn’t impressive- not to me at least. Trying to challenge the taste bud with some sze chuan chili oil, the house made flat noodle is also tossed with toasted peanut and seasoned soy vinaigrette but it turned out rather boring actually. 

12.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

Best to be pairing with some of their most outstanding dishes, the addition of wine on the menu worked out very well with these zingy Asian flavours. Helps to pace yourself for the ultimate dining experience. Otherwise, just enjoy the food and then order your cuppa joe while enjoying the semi open space with sunlight comes shinning through.
