Christmas Set Menu @ Zest Cafe, Bangsar South (Invited Review)

Time is moving fast, and Christmas is just two more days away. Still planning where to go for your Christmas date? Here is another ideal choice- the Zest Cafe in Bangsar South. This cozy cafe serves Mediterranean inspired dishes, and pratices “low salt, low suger, MSG free, low cream, no margerine but only butter, and uses 100% olive oil”. With all these taglines, you can make sure that your meal in Zest Cafe during Christmas with your love ones will be a healthy, yet wholesome.
Good news is, during this festive season, Zest Cafe comes out with special 4 courses Christmas Set at the price of RM28.80++ per set. The set comes with a soup, salad, choice of main course and fruit cooler. There are 3 mains to choose from, which is the Rosemarry Chicken Thigh with BBQ Sauce, Fried Chicken Tendes with Cheezy Sauce and Spaghetti, and Fish Slices with Spiced Rice.
Toasted Bread
Start the meal with a basket of garlic bread. Do not have high expectation on it initially, but this butter-spread toasted bread turn out to be the favourite of many. Lovely and addictive.
Pea Soup with Carrot Swirl
Smooth and creamy, the pea soup is tummy warming, with a swirl of carrot sauce to touch up the taste.
Zesty Turkey Salad with Pumpkin & Barley
A plate of salad brimming with texture- creamy pumpkin, crunchy lettuce, juicy honey tomato, tender turkey slices, zesty barley. Colourful, yet healthy.
Fried Chicken Tenders with Cheezy Sauce & Spaghetti
Al dente Spaghetti tossed with tomato sauce, topped with fried chicken tenders and cheezy sauce. Hold to the concept of less oil, the chicken tenders are crispy but not oily at all.
Rosemary Chicken Thigh with BBQ Sauce & Mashed Potato
One of the signature dishes in Zest Cafe. With two rounds of marinations for six hours(the first round is to soften the chicken meat, second round is to marinate with spices), there is no doubt in the tenderness of the chicken. Flavorful with a hint of aroma from the rosemary, this dish worth getting two thumbs up from us.
Fish Slices with Spiced Rice
Spices infused dish, but not overwhelmed. The fish fillet is soft and fresh, paired well with Thai rice cooked with aglio olio spices. Recommended for those who like to keep their meal in light flavour.
Fruit Cooler
Quench your thirst with the fruit cooler, which is the dragon fruit juice. Flavour and nutrition packed, this juice will gain children’s like as well.
