Olive @ Sooka Sentral

May 29, 2013

Fun fare at KL Sentral: Olives menu features a healthy heap of assured ambition.

A splash of sunshine to brighten up our night: love this sandwich of house-cured salmon with egg, avocado, tomato salsa, capers & aioli in ciabatta.

Olive seems to be a sister outlet of Melbournes Shakahari, so heres something from that vegetarian specialist: satisfyingly chunky, flavorsome satay built with bean curd, seitan, onions & capsicum, served with pickles, blanched greens, red jasmine rice & a nice peanut sauce.

Cant complain about the pumpkin soup, piping-hot with pepita seeds, salsa & herb crouton.

Slick, slippery linguine with slow-cooked duck in savory spiced stock, tossed with herbs, rocket, oven-dried cherry tomatoes & chili flakes.

Chicken Medina, comprising a char-grilled, bone-free thigh, glazed with coriander chili, served with roasted pumpkin. Pretty enjoyable chicken preparation.

Multiple types of fries; our favorite has to be the sweet potato variety. Addictive.

Flourless choc cake with nuts, cereal & strawberries, a low-guilt end to a high-satisfaction meal.

Shelly Beach Cabernet Merlot, OK for below RM100 but not particularly recommended.
