Marmalade 2 @ Plaza Mont Kiara

With the yelling and shouting over strands of coloured and preserved vegetable, the round after round of rich glorious Chinese cuisine and finally the captain that eyes you like his prey, giving off sign language to pay for the meal and get out; after all that mess, you need a quiet meal to settle the heart down.

Where else is a nicer place other then Mont Kiara. In its booming years, flocks of teenagers, hippies and alike will crowd this happening area and invade any restaurant that serves food for the mouth. Over the years, new and more hip areas have mushroomed and only the loyal have stayed. The expats and the people staying around the area are the regulars and some hard core fans like me carrying forward from the days of high school will still surface once in a while.

It is not so much of Marmalade that i like, it is the ambience that makes this a hot sell to me. The quiet surroundings with a few people walking past, no traces of car honks and brakes and everyone looking so joyful and gay.

Looks out sometimes a cup of juice, a plate of salad and sandwich along with some sinful quiche should do the trick as i waltz away in my chair with the abundance of magazines and newspapers.

The mushroom and ham quiche with a side salad (RM18-19)

The salad with avocado, cashewnuts and chicken cubes along with the colourful bell peppers (RM16-18)

The smoked salmon sandwich (RM19)

Now located at Plaza Sunrise Mont Kiara, just walk past the waterfall and you should be able to see it.

Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5 stars. Love the simplicity and the healthy aura that it gives.

I haven't had QUICHE in ages!!! I am quiching for quiche! (Whatever that means, lol.)

I do adore your reviews so, Nipples, you go places so I don't have to go to all of 'em... and then I just choose the ones you don't rate a total dismal failure. Hee.

I'm mad from overworking. Ignore. Ignore.

Selamat Tahun Tikus! :D

Been here 3 times and each time not memorable at all. I tried the salad you ordered, the apple and avocados pieces served was brown in colour. Bleck! My friend's pasta was soaked in oil. Only the quiche we had was nice. That is why i never bother to post about them. I dunno if i should give them the 4th chance. Hmmm..

leo said...

Hmmm the meals look absolutely ravishing.. :D

My kinda food.. light, fulfilling..

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...
