It’s 2019 and we care about what goes inside the system.
Bruschetta 4 Ways > RM19 to RM22
Crusty sides, fluffy center, and divine toppings are the few elements encompassing delightful bruschettas. Among the unique selection of sweet and savory toppings, we highly recommend the Avacado Tomato( Avocado, Pouched Eggs, Sautee Tomato w/ Sourdough Bread) & Turkey Mushroom ( Grilled Turkey Slice, Sautee Mushroom, Tomato Puree, Onion, Pouched Eggs w/ Sourdough Bread).
Nothing is stingy here. The toasts are thick and the toppings are either slathered on or piled up high. Along with a good sourdough that has a crusty exterior and chewy center, we’ll say that they are very value-for-money considering the quality they come at. Other options include Apple Pumpkin with the pumpkin sauce home-made and Salmon Spinach.
Peri Peri Chicken Cauliflower Rice > RM22
Beat them food critics throwing shades about healthy delicious meals down with our favorite pick of the main consisting Grilled Chicken Skewers (Homemade Peri-Peri Sauce Chicken Breast, Capsicum, Onion) served with Cauliflower Rice as it truly represents the healthy part of the dish. With the skewers marinated thoroughly with the home-made sauce, gather the breast meat cooked just right, unique cauliflower grains coated with the richness of the yolk and indulge in a scoop of flavor burst dominated by the meat.
Signature Balls > RM20
Fan of tomato based dishes? This comforting bowl looking like something grandma would make would definitely fill you up after a heavy workout with their homemade metaballs nestled on a bed of sweet and sour tomato soup seasoned with salt and pepper with a hint of Italian herbs giving it a kick. Never complete without a little bit of mozzarella and parmesan. Scoop the last bits of the gravy mixed with the creamy yolk with the sourdough bread. Filled? Not Just Yet.
Hawaiian Chicken > RM 20
There ain’t any space for the anti-pineapple hater cuz they go Hawaii all the way. Written gourmet all over it, it ain’t you regular Hawaiian Chicken Pizza with the crust being made from cauliflower. Yeap, you heard it right!
We threw our judgments out of the window and were surprised by the flavours intact crust that managed to hold the Minced Chicken, Pineapple and Mozzarella Cheese garnished with Basil and Parsley. Not gonna lie. Domino’s pizza any day yet if you find yourself leaning towards a light snack involving anything pizza-like minus the guilt, the latter is the way to go.
Tuna Aglio Olio > RM 23
While it wasn’t the highlight of the menu, we reckon the Tuna Aglio Opio wasn’t too shabby serving its significance name its purpose! Slurp up the al dente pasta glazed with olive oil that unravels in layers, first the tuna chunks then the subtle hint of spices from the chili flakes and finally the subtlest, freshest hint of herbiness with a slight crunch from the celery. Calling out the safe eater cuz you can’t go wrong with this pick
