Simply Mel’s : Cosy Portugese Cuisine in heart of KL

November 7, 2011 at 2:32 pm (Food Love Affair) (, , , , )

If you’re looking for an authentic portugese cuisine in Kuala Lumpur, look no more. You can find it right here in The Sphere, Bangsar South Kuala Lumpur. Situated at first floor on the far right side (i think :P), the restaurant ambiance is cozy and welcoming.

The Sphere, Bangsar South

 Friendly and cheerful staff welcomed us and seated us at our reserved table (we booked online through Table4Us). After looking through the wide choices of menu and listening to recommendation from the staff, we ordered white rice with 3 dishes and 1 appertizer. cute reservation card on the table 🙂

While waiting for our food, in the menu there was a story on how Mel (the owner I think) came about to opening this cafe. There was even a baby picture of Mel and her mom. We looked around to see whether we can spot the owner and I think she is handling the food inside the kitchen. (totally assuming from the picture in the menu) So we kinda expected the food was gonna be good since the owner herself is making it.. and we are not dissapointed 🙂

The verdict(description of dishes was taken directly from the menu :)) :

Mama’s Mercy Fish Croquette  RM 9.90
Fluffy fish roll, breaded and fried, served with Mel’s special chilli
Review : Taste like ‘begedil’ my mom makes. Taste great with the chili (7/10)

Mel’s Devil Curry Regular RM 12.90 Large RM17.90
Debal curry with chicken & fried potato wedges cooked in a fiery gravy of chilli, onions,galangal,lemongrass and mustard seeds
Review : Highly recommended. But personally for me i think it is a bit bland. But love that they are not stingy with the chicken meat chunks in the curry (6/10)

Terung Sambal Regular RM9.90 Large 13.90
Pan fried aubergines smothered in Mel’s sambal, sprinkled with dried prawns, sliced onions and chillies
Review : Love this dish sO much!! (9/10)

Pineaple Prawn Sambal RM17.90
Pineapple chunks and prawn sauteed with Mel’s sambal
Review : Tasty and delicious. my only comment was the prawn was too little for the price 😦 (7/10)

Overall, the food was great..staff was friendly and attentive. We left the place with great experience.  Would definitely come again to Simply Mel’s
