Ziffy is a restaurant that breeds ardent admirers: As we were enjoying our lunch here, a customer on the next table spotted us photographing our spread, then beckoned us closer. "I've been coming here for months," he eventually told us. "I like the menu, I like the service. Everything is good here."
The house-made meatloaf, thick and rustically textured, is an interesting option, setting this slightly apart from typical big breakfast platters. Everything on the plate tastes fresh and nourishing, the hallmark of solid produce. We also like how Ziffy's breakfast fare is available throughout business hours, even at night; the selection also includes Mexican-inflected temptations like tacos, burritos and quesadillas.
Pasta with a purpose: It's always encouraging to see a cafe do justice to spaghetti specialities. Ziffy's top recommendations surface with seafood galore - I See-Food is an aglio olio classic that's packed with plump tiger prawns, blue mussels, butterfish and grilled calamari, dressed in extra virgin olive oil, buoyed by sun-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, spinach and parsley, impeccably representing both the ocean and the land in a harmonious medley of vibrant flavours (RM35).
On the creamier side of the spectrum, the Crabtain Buttermilk is crowned with meaty-crunchy soft-shell crab, the star of the plate, providing textural contrast to strands of spaghetti slicked up by a buttermilk sauce imbued with nuances of crab meat, garlic, cili padi, curry leaves and parsley (RM35).
Other playful options include the Assam Kedondong Mojito, with dried plum, assam powder, ambarella concentrate, lime, mint and soda water (RM15); Hazel, You're Nuts, a smooth iced hazelnut latte with vanilla ice cream (RM16); and Cool Cucumber, a heat-buster made with cucumber extract, aloe vera juice, lime and mint (RM12).
If you're charmed by Ziffy, you can book the place for your next event - the venue comfortably holds up to 60 persons inside. Customised buffet menus are available for large groups.
Many thanks to Ziffy for a lunch that banished our weekday blues.
