Fresh Shrimps Or Crabmeat Cocktail (RM12.90)
Garnished with our special concotion of cocktail sauce
Baked Fresh Premium Scallops (Half Dozen: RM28.90)
Scallops baked with white wine bechamel sauce and cheese
These are so good . The scallops are just divine . Big fresh scallops drowned in creamy bechamel sauce and CHEESE ! If I didn’t use a spoon to lift the scallop up, you can’t even see the scallops . That’s how much sauce there is . If you kept your bread, you could even use the leftover sauce to spread on your bread.
Escargots Bourguinonne (1 Dozen: RM28.90, 1/2 Dozen: RM16.90)
French Snails baked in chablis garlic sauce
The escargots are relatively easy to dig out , some just fall right out, which is good .
Oh yeah, Chloe came along with us for the food review . That’s her first escargot, her first time trying !
The Ship’s Salad (RM13.90)
Freshly selected lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber sticks, dressed with turkey ham, boiled egg and croutons, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
I don’t really fancy thousand island sauce, so I opted for the French dressing instead . The croutons were a little too big for my liking though .
Roasted Rack of Lamb (RM42.90)
Lamb rib topped with kebab sauce served with broccoli florets, corn on cob and baked potato
Charbroiled Rib Eye Steak (RM54.90)
A tender and succelent steak served with prime vegetables, corn on cob, baked potato and a bowl of salad
The praised signature main course . It’s tender, juicy and each bite just hits you. That oomph !
The Ship is always full . So do remember to reserve a table if you do not enjoy waiting in line . By 6.30, the place is packed . But remember!! On the eve of festive days or special occassions, they don’t take reservations.
Potted Shrimp (RM15)
Served with homemade Olive Foccacia & Grape Chutney
They made their own bread and chutney. Their foccacia taste fabulous (A lil oily though), and their grape chutney was delicious although I’d personally wished it was less sweet. I’m not so much into sweet stuff. The potted shrimp was okay . It’s not something really big to shout about but it’s something you don’t often get around here.
Crabby Curry Bee Hoon (RM15)
This one, is amazing. We were all thinking, what the hell .. It’s such a Western-themed restaurant, and we’re here having … Crabby Curry Bee Hoon ? Okay it’s Malaysia, we still enjoy our Asian food but c’mon !
We were stunned when it came . It was “HAH, IN YOUR FACE” for us. It’s just so good .
A lot of people would think it’s like Sarawak laksa, it has that slight hint of Sarawak laksa taste. The shredded crab, the chiffonade basil and mint leaves.. It was just simply divine . Each of us finished our bowls within minutes. It was that good .
We didn’t manage to finish our food review though.. Jalan Mesui had electricity problem . I don’t know what happened but it was really sad for the whole road. Business for that night just died like that . And they were fogging the place during dinner time . How brilliant ! Like, come on , who wants to eat their dinner fogged with the pesticide stuff ? Seriously?

Heyyyy .. A lil short post on Humble Chef today
Humble chef has a super clean and simple space for dining.
Lamb Pita (RM5) & Chicken and mozarella cheese Omelette (RM5)
Gorgeous lamb pita, the bread almost melts in your mouth along with the lamb. As you can see, it’s so easy to tear off (in the photo) anyway. But really, it’s one of the best lamb pita for its value. Ever !
The omelette .. oh gosh, heavenly !!!! Such simple food, yet so satisfying .
Seafood Aglio Olio (RM5)
Spaghetti in olive oil sauce, fresh crunchy prawns, celery and a sprinkle of blackpepper on top. It’s nothing fantastic , honestly .. But for RM5 ? Oh what the heck ! Especially when you’re in Plaza Damansara where nothing is below RM20 for a decent meal !
Creme Brulee (RM5)
It’s a big portion actually .. It’s decent, but I find it a lil’ too hard . Possibly because it’s kept in the fridge for too long .
54, Plaza Damansara, Jalan Medan Setia 2,
Damansara Heights, 59100 Kuala Lumpur
Business Hours : 6pm – 12am
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 . (:
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 !
Pavlova of the week (RM25)
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 .
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)
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 .
