Mellowcup Coffee has underwent a menu transformation, chipping in a few dishes from different regional to the existing menu for a greater selection of choices. Pasta lovers, Western cuisine ardent followers or Japanese dishes fans would be delighted over their newly minted menu, as the core of the newly introduced dishes are focused on them. At the same time, check out our previous visit here and ice drip coffee here.
The Grilled Salmon with Hot Spring Egg (RM 32.90) at Mellowcup Coffee had a slight different approach, employing a hot spring egg to integrate with the homemade tomato sauce. The unusual gravy combination resulted an elusive yet pleasant inter-mixture, complementing well the crisp skin grilled salmon. Drizzle a few drops of lemon to introduce a tangy sensation to the salmon, and do not forget to savour the asparagus and mashed potatoes in between the meal.
Black Pepper Spaghetti with Chicken Thigh (RM 23.80) is a creative creation of the chef, using black pepper to introduce a mild burning sensation to the pasta noodles. The price tag is justified by the presence of a giant chicken thigh cutlet, which is grilled to perfection to possess a tender meat and crisp skin. A few flower petals were used to ornament the spaghetti dish.
Herbs in Ocean (RM 28.80) is specially crafted catering to seafood connoisseurs. An array of seafood such as prawns, squids and mussels are topping the al-dente spaghetti noodles in couple, presenting an unique seafood scent to the noodles. The complex taste does not just stop there, as the chef has wonderfully introducing some herbs into the cooking.
Mellowcup Coffee certainly knows some people would not be able to enjoy the meal without any rice, hence they introduced a bento box with Japanese Curry Chicken (RM 27.90). It is served along with a bowl of tomato soap, some lightly seasoned curry chicken with potatoes and a handful of salad.
Chocolate Egg Yolk (RM13.90)
|Peppermint and Chocolate (RM 13.90)|
The dessert selection is pretty much unchanged, thus we sampled the Chocolate Egg Yolk (RM 13.90), which the fillings ooze out upon slicing the cake much to visual pleasure. On the other hand, the Peppermint and Chocolate (RM 13.90) had a delectable minty taste and firm body, leaving a cool sensation in the oral cavity upon savory.
Coffee and Tea are always the forte of Mellowcup coffee. After sampling their Crimson Blend and Peppermint Gred A previously, we tried their Pearl Jasmine (RM 15.90) to relax our mind. In addition, Ice Drip coffee is definitely not to be missed during any visit to the cafe, and we enjoyed their Butterscotch Latte much.
