Zouk Café Bar Food Review – 12 August 2010

The entrance of Zouk Cafe Bar

With sexy engineer Erica outside Zouk Cafe Bar

Zouk Café Bar (ZCB) is an extension of the Zouk brand (Zouk Club that is not the Zouk Spas you see everywhere) in Kuala Lumpur and is prominently located at the main entrance to The Gardens, Mid-Valley.

ZCB primarily caters to office workers, shoppers, teens, young adults and those whose heart is still young. Many thanks to the management of ZCB for inviting sexy engineer Erica, student blogger Stephanie and myself to sample feast on the delicious food.

ZCB outlet manager Alvin was on hand to explain the various items that we were to taste. Food prepared by ZCB is made from fresh ingredients and does not use any canned or powdered food while the veges are sourced from hydroponic farms.

My drinks - check out the buy 1 get 1 free promo from 6.00pm to 9.00pm!
The girls went for healthier choices - Stephanie with her 100% fresh apple juice (with no added sugar)
While Erica went for a blend of 100% fresh celery, cucumber & orange juice (where is the drink? I don't know, I was more interested in my beer)
The Soup of the Day (RM15) - fresh Tomato Soup this time - this was remarkably well-balanced, not too sour or sweet (soups change from day-to-day so ask your server)
Cream of Mushroom soup (RM15) - made from 4 types of mushrooms and definitely not from a can

Breaded mussels with garlic coriander mayo dip (RM16) - crispy on the outside, soft on the inside!
Tuna & tiger prawns (RM18) - marinated tuna & tiger prawns with Thai chilli sauce. The prawns were juicy and fresh and went well with the sauce.

Fried chicken wings with garlic coriander mayo dip - deep-fried, topped with salt, garlic, pepper and English parsley (my favourite tapas at ZCB)
Classic chef salad (RM24) - prawns, egg, avocado, smoked chicken breast (I liked the avocado but overall I'm not a vege person)
Seafood hor fun - this item is the Asian bestseller at ZCB. I loved the big and juicy prawns and the thick sauce.
Seafood Aglio Olio - angel hair pasta, prawns, mussels and scallops!
Lamb cutlets - New Zealand lamb, cooked 65% (default) or to guest’s preference. Note that lamb (unlike beef) must be properly cooked so I'd stick to their default 65% which is really very juicy!
Pan fried black cod-fish - comes with risotto, button mushrooms and onion cream sauce. This was undoubtedly our fav dish!
Mangomisu - tiramisu with fresh mango. Erica wasn't a big dairy fan so she dug out the cake part while Steph and I enjoyed the mango and custard on top!
Triple scoop ice cream gelato - strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. The perfect ending to an awesome meal!

Tapas prices start from RM10 onwards. The mains are from RM30 to RM50 which is pretty reasonable if you take into account the portion and quality. Overall I was quite satisfied and will definitely return for more whenever I’m in Mid-Valley.

Btw check out their special drinks promos!
