Handmade pasta may be another trending food fad. But StapleDough will disprove that notion.
This boutique restaurant on the ground floor of Megah Rise Mall has fresh pasta.
See what this pasta maestro has to offer! And get ready to treat your loved ones to fine Italian food with a touch of fusion.
Table Of Contents:
StapleDough opened its doors on December 23, 2022. This coincides with the opening of Megah Rise Condominium.
The logo is unique and abstract with the irregular shape of pasta. Although it is difficult to make out some of the alphabets.
We like the interior of StapleDough. It is clean and attractive. Moreover, they have pretty plating to go with each dish.
Ease Of Parking
Since Megah Rise opened its doors, parking in Taman Megah has been nightmarish. There are not enough parking spaces for the sudden increase in vehicles.
To avoid having to scour the area for a parking spot:
Head straight to Megah Rise because there is plenty of paid parking there.
From Monday to Friday, parking costs RM2 for the first 3 hours and RM1 after that. On weekends and public holidays, there is a flat fee of RM3.
StapleDough’s clever use of deep hues gives the elegant interior a tavern but luxurious look.
Crimson lights and downlights illuminate the open wine cellars, creating depth and space.
The spacious, open kitchen is a real showstopper. Here, freshly- prepared pasta hangs on a clothesline. Before they toss them into the pot.
Its cozy atmosphere makes StapleDough the perfect place for private conversations. But also, birthday parties or a reunion with long-lost acquaintances.
If you’re dining with your pet, the al fresco section is dedicated to pet owners and their four-legged friends.
The service is excellent, and the waiters are very attentive.
We were served water almost immediately upon placing our order. And unlike other restaurants that charge for plain water, you can get it for free at StapleDough.
Food At StapleDough
At StapleDough, it’s impossible not to overdose on carbs. Because the handmade pasta is divine.
Truffle fries are a delicious appetizer for even more mouthwatering food ahead:
They are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. There is also a generous topping of Italian cheese and pieces of kombu seaweed.
We couldn’t resist the Seafood Bisque soup – a marine delight simmered in shellfish broth. There is cream for a richer taste, and this tomato-based soup has many squid, clams, and shrimp too.
Pork Ragu Pappardelle is their star dish, where the pasta’s taste and al dente texture take center stage. The pasta has a thick texture and is full of natural flavors. While the ragu sauce has its own rich, meaty flavor that is not too overbearing.
Other Dishes At StapleDough
Pici Carbonara is another fine choice. It features a thicker version of spaghetti but rolled by hand. A runny egg sits in the creamy egg sauce. The spiciness of Sarawak black pepper makes this a fusion dish you’ll never get bored of!
Seafood Aglio Olio is the most expensive pasta dish at RM56. For this price, we find the portions of seafood stingy. Even so, the 3 pieces of clam, 4 pieces of squid and 2 tiger prawns were fresh. And went well with the herbaceous garlic sauce.
There is a decent selection of old and new world wines sourced from across the globe. These include wine from South Australia to Spain.
And at StapleDough, tiramisu is a heavenly dessert with delicious mascarpone cream. Plus, sponge cake fingers that are in premium rum.
Pricing At StapleDough
With an average price of RM40 per dish, StapleDough is not a staple go-to eatery for the average Malaysian.
But it’s a splurge you don’t have to justify. Given the exquisite ingredients and unique handmade pasta. These set StapleDough apart from other cafes in Petaling Jaya.
On days when you crave Italian food minus the pizza, StapleDough offers amazing pasta. Handmade pasta, a lovely interior and attentive service make it worth the price.
