Citrus @ Bangsar Village
November 13, 2009
A comfy new cafe that serves a strange mix of Singaporean, Middle Eastern and Pakistani food, with some fusion twists to make things even more interesting.
Citrus Special Aloo Chat, a combo of soft chick peas, onions and greens on a pastry bed, drizzled with yoghurt and tamarind sauce. Spectacular comfort food, blending both Middle Eastern and South Asian flavours in one recipe.
On the other hand, the House Briyani was rather ordinary. Nothing wrong with it, but unlike the best kinds of briyani, it simply wasn't bursting with flavour.
We had uncertain feelings about the House Special Spaghettini, tossed with capers, olives, pine nuts and a homemade tomato base. It had a sourish-spicy taste that wasn't quite successful. Maybe sometimes, East and West aren't meant to wed.
Blueberry tea and Orange & Carrot juice.
Other recommended items here that we'll aim to try next time include the Singapore Chinese Rojak and cool-sounding desserts such as Kheer (Pakistani sweet boiled rice).
