In times of such fast-paced life the metropolis is riding now, it’s not easy to really find hearty, wholesome dishes that are deliciously served while keeping prices reasonable and yet raising the bar in terms of freshness and inventiveness. Unless you have a bigger budget to indulge in daily, most city folks would resort to fast food as the current world dictates everything to be speedy execution from food preparation to work. Thankfully, there is once café that actually takes the pain of cooki
All coffee here are served double shot- medium roasted house blend with mild fruity body of Tanzanian and Sumatra. For appetizer, you could start off with…………
FRIED MOZZARELLA (MYR 12.90) MUSHROOM RISOTTO (MYR 15.90)
Italian mixed herbs with mushroom risotto using Swiss cream. Good stuff here and highly recommended!
SALMON SPAGHETTI (MYR 18.90)
Chunky bites of salmon cubes with tomato puree and olive oil in a light creamy gravy. PESTO DI SALMON (MYR 24.90)
This has got to be my favourite as compared to the tomato gravy type, for its lighter and less fishy taste. Springy pasta is done al dente, and generously mixed with the fragrant green herbs. HAWAIIAN CHICKEN CHOP (MYR 19.90)
A huge slab of meat served bounteously with savoury gravy, pleasing bites of mashed potato to go with the thoroughly marinated succulent chicken meat, and garden salad as sides. RETROMARCIA CORDON BLEU FISH (MYR 26.90)
Love the uber juicy and moist fish. It was cleverly executed that if I wasn’t been told, I wouldn’t have known it was a Dory for the fish meat is toothsomely marinated with herbs. Good camouflage but a pleasantly surprise one! Up and coming new dishes for weekend grubs!
BALSAMIC MUSHROOM BEEF (MYR 24.90)
Beef pan fired with button mushroom, oyster mushroom, onion and balsamic vinegar and served with mashed potato and croissant.
Using specifically tenderloin cut, diners get to savour a delectably juicy meat that is adequately soaked with the relish flavourfully alongside savory curry gravy. All in all, it creates a smooth composition and zestly appetizing with subtle tartness to the taste bud. The croissant actually reminds me of the oriental fare- dipping mantou bun with curry like at Pince & PInts or any thick gravy at Tim Ho Wan, hehe..... CHICKEN ROULADE (MYR 20.90)
Chicken rolled in sautéed mushroom, red pepper and onion, served with mashed potato and nachos. Again, a heavy dosage of herbs is used to complement the sapid dish gracefully as well as tastefully too. The nicely rolled poultry is stuffed with assorted spiced fillings that lends a very vibrant and saporous hint, that goes really well with their inhouse prepared chunky mashed potatoes. I just can’t get enough of the mashed spuds! Hehe………………………. BBQ CHICKEN TIKKA (MYR 20.90)
Spiced chicken grilled with green peppers, pineapples and onions, served with croissant.
Would be better if the pineapple cubes have been served more, for that engaging savoury-sweet bites! After the delightful feast, time to clear the throat with some cooling beverage along some brilliant presentation of cup of Joe too (=
CHOCORUM (MYR 13)
One of my fave beverage pick!
Never thought that the cocoa could actually blend in quite well with the rum taste, making this an unique blend. Something special and children-friendly i suppose, hehe. COOL PRESS JUICE (MYR 9)
Orange or green apple HOT CHOCOLATE (MYR 11) ROSE CAFÉ LATTE (MYR 11)
An aromatic cuppa with a dainty hint of floral……….. THE HIVE (MYR 12)
Iced Coffee added with honey and frothed milk for extra smoothness. Nyummmm………… I like it very much! Everyone was full to the brim at the end of the session and we went home with a happy tummy. Guess I would be missing the risotto and pesto plates for now, surely looking forward to another return soon. Do check it out guys!
