Mezze Bar & Restaurant, Medan Damansara

So you and your partner are deciding, hmm . Where to go for dinner? Let’s try something new, she says. And he says, how about we go to Mezze ! Yes, let’s . It’s a casual place , a lil’ fine dine feeling, but comfortable enough for her to dress down a little. No need of those fancy dresses with 5 karat bling blings . Okay, enough with my story telling wannabee moment, back in reality . My first impression towards Mezze was .. Okay, it’s an Italian restaurant , let’s see what it has to offer . But as I looked through the menu , I saw a few items that are inspired from different cultures. You’ll know what I mean when I tell you about the dishes !

Charcuterie Platter (Small : RM44 ; Large : RM69)
The meat loaves, pate and pickled vegetables are all homemade ! The platter is seasonal, so you might get different items each time you order it .

Artichoke Dip (RM25)
I could live with just the dip alone .. So cheesy and creamy but it’s not enough to make you ‘jelak’ , you know ? It’s extremely salty without the crostini but I just love it . It’s simply divine .

Momofuku Pork Belly Rolls (RM21.90)
The name’s cute, it’s served looking like cute stuffed mantaos as well .  A slice of spiced pork belly with pickled cucumber with spring onion sandwiched in steamed flower roll buns and served in a dim sum basket . This restaurant keeps surprising me .. This momo dish is pretty awesome , it’s worth a try, but if you’re not into fusion/Chinese food in a western restaurant, then .. I suggest you skip this . (:

Fried Zucchini
Perfect healthy snack to nibble on ! They’re so addictive, really. . And it keeps you thinking, is it healthy? It’s.. zucchini ! But it’s fried. But it taste so good . So I’m warning ya, it’ll mess with your brain. In a good way . (;

Asian-style Spicy Buffalo Wings (Small : RM26 (1-2pax) ; Big : RM49 (3-4pax))
Chili honey sauce with LOTS of sesame .  They’re tasty, perfect finger food while chatting away with your best girlfriends and bros .(:

Mac & Cheese (RM15)
This is what you call a real Mac & Cheese composing of 4 types of different cheese ! Unlike the uber cheapo way where the sauce is boring orange in colour that taste like cream and cream only .

Chargrilled Spatchcock Chicken (RM36)
When it comes to Western food, I seldom, almost never order chicken. It’s probably because I consume chicken on a daily basis .__. But anyway, I’m in love with their beautifully baked provencal potatoes. The spring chicken taste really good, but I’m not too fond of it.

Lamb Cutlets (RM82)
Served chargrilled and accompanied with lovely cous cous salad and smoked eggplant puree. Although it doesn’t have any unique taste, it’s nice to have good lamb cutlets once in a while, especially during sudden cravings ! :D

Pavlova of the week (RM25)

The Salad Bar, Damansara Uptown

Most of us always make new resolutions to keep fit, go to the gym often and eat healthier food . But how often do we keep that resolution and continuously eat healthy food ? I’m pretty sure you have your regular places for organic food and such .. But how about trying a new place ? Try The Salad Bar. Worth your time, trust me , especially when you’re into greens . ^^ I love my veggie and I definitely love salads . Yums


Spicy teriyaki chicken salad with spicy vinegar dressing (Large : RM11.90 , Half Portion : RM6.90)
My favourite salad here, I like the sauce and how spicy it is . Besides, it’s lean meat, makes me feel better of myself . Healthy living . :P

Pumpkin Soup with croquettes
*Slurp . I seem to be eating more pumpkins lately .. Anyway, this bowl of pumpkin soup is super good . It feels like slurping spoonfuls of blended pumpkins . Haha . Try it out !


High Energy Superman salad with wheatflakes (RM11.90 for full portion)
This is the full size . Half size is like 3 quarters of this . Really , both portions are uber huge .. Be careful when you’re choosing the size for your salads .

 Club Sandwich (RM7.90)


Amazing how such a simple thing can taste so good . Mum and I make this all the time .. But this is different compared to what we usually make . Yummy .

Dory Carbonara (RM7.90)
Nothing big to shout about, but it’s good stuff .

Spicy Chicken (RM7.90)
But this one is different. Looks like mee goreng kan? But it doesn’t taste like that ! *licks lips*
Spicy spooketi (Trying to be lame here, as Halloween is coming), aromatic basil flavour with slices of chicken meat. I’d definitely order this everytime I visit The Salad Bar.

Homemade Yogurt with honey + 1 topping (RM4.50)
THE YOGURT IS SO GOOD . You can tell the difference , really . If you can’t, go buy the cup yogurt from the supermarket, and buy this .

Page 2 by Plan B, Publika

Last Thursday on Merdeka eve, I went for the launch party for Page 2 by Plan B. The BIG Group are expanding and expanding !! :O Anyway, Page 2 is an open air bar with gorgeous decor . Diggin’ the stacked up retro TV . Only 4 of the televisions are turned on , showing a grainy screen with P-A-G-E-2 words.

Sadly, because it was so packed, it was like a man made sauna . Literally .
I tried their FROSTY BEER . OMGHYPERVENTILAING . Imagine, in the man made sauna , you, sitting there sandwiched between your friends, sipping super duper COLD beer, with icy foam . Yes, you heard me, ICY FOAM on top !

Mini lamb pies . Oh, oh , did I mention the awesome fact that the menu is on every table ? :D

After the awesome launch party, I headed down to Posh Club in Sri Hartamas . That sad place . I swear I thought I stepped into a retro club with karaoke set ups. I mean, look behind me , it’s empty ;_;

Dinner @ Giovino, Changkat Bukit Bintang

Sunday, my last day of holiday until school starts. Spent the morning and afternoon with Victor. We watched the movie, Valentine’s Day as well! It was not too bad! Actually, it was quite good. Except that, Taylor Swift acted like as if she’s a real dumb teenage blonde.. That one just turned me off.. Instantly.

Anyway, we went to Giovino, Chankat Bukit Bintang for dinner. It’s a little pricey, but worth every cent! It’s a non-halal Italian restaurant. Nowadays, you can seldom find a good non-halal Italian restaurant. Giovino has a beautiful interior. Especially the upstairs. It looked like a bee-hive kind of thing.

Pussy Foot (RM12)
It’s sort of reminds me of Oreo. Don’t ask why, it just does. It’s slightly sour if you don’t stir it up together. So, girls! Don’t order this if you decide to throw the cream away.
