Mezze @ Kasah, Bukit Damansara
September 20, 2012
Warm service and a welcoming ambience make this a worthwhile addition to Medan Damansara, though the food quality seems erratic.
Mezze Salad (mixed baby leaves, fennel, feta, pomegranate molasses). We're not big fans of salads, but it felt right to order something healthy for a change.
Roast pork. Succulent stuff, though the crackling was more chewy than crispy.
Duck liver pate laced with Pedro Ximenez, with mixed herb salad & fennel marmalade. An addictively soft and flavourful spread.
Saffron broth of prawns, mussels and fish with chilli. Fell short of expectations. There wasn't all that much seafood or saffron in this thin broth.
Barbecued spatchcock chicken (marinated spring chicken butterflied grilled on a bare flame, with provencal potatoes and aubergine salsa). Tender & tasty.
Lamb pilaf pie (lamb cooked with spices layered with basmati rice under a flaky crust and with a side of raita). A letdown, as the rice was utterly bland.
Sticky date toffee pudding. Surprisingly light & not stodgy at all.
Warm Valrhona chocolate brownie with Haagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream. Excellent. Every bite of the melt-in-the-mouth brownie offered a rich explosion of chocolate.
Pertaringa Undercover Shiraz.
