Food At Lisette’s Café & Bakery @ Bangsar
Black Nasi Lemak may look intimidating and even somewhat scary at first glance.
But the pillowy soft santan-infused rice is divine. The color comes from the organic black pearl rice used to prepare the dish.
Additionally, we like the dense texture of the sambal. It has a good balance of spice and fragrant undertones of charred onions.
For die-hard Malaysian foodies, go for the Hakka Prawn Noodle, or Ipoh Hor Fun and Nasi Kerabu Percik.
The Hakka Prawn noodles features 4 big prawns with tasty chili oil drizzled on the noodles for a spicy waft.
Tom Yam Laksa with Konjac Noodles is a heavenly dish of zesty lime, spices and fragrant bunga kafir. This low-fat, low-carb meal is also gluten-free.
Baked Egg Tunas are a mix of dhal, kidney beans and tuna chunks with fennel sauce. There are 2 runny eggs on a bed of gluten-free pita bread too. The flavorful gravy pairs well with the sourdough bread served in a basket.
Prawn Tacos is another luxurious indulgence. It combines prawn chunks and avocado in a tomato sauce with caramelized onions.
Katsu Curry Rice has plenty of breaded fried chicken. And it comes with pickled cucumber, fluffy rice and golden curry on the side.
Kimchi Fried Rice packs a large serving of breaded chicken and kimchi-laced rice. Plus, seaweed strips and a runny egg on top.
But we feel that the Chicken Spaghetti Pomodoro is a miss. Since it has strong charred and bitter undertones.
With a price tag of RM34, the portions are small too. Additionally, the tomato-based sauce wasn’t extraordinary.
Note: Beyond the mains menu, there is a smorgasbord of quality pastries. Like Danish pastries, sweet tarts and scrumptious cakes.
The lunch buffet is RM45++ per person every Tuesday. And this is a successful crowd puller at Lisette’s Café & Bakery @ Bangsar. The clever marketing gimmick attracts people even on off-peak days.
From 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., there’s a dizzying array of delicious finger foods and hearty meat dishes.
Vegetarians and vegans can enjoy the selection of plant-based foods that are rare to come by.
