MANDALA Café and Bar @ Publika, Solaris Dutamas, KL

Whether you’d love to have a casual coffee date or lunch meeting during the day, or enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail after work till late evening, I believe MANDALA Café and Bar in Publika Shopping Gallery is something you can consider for any occasions.

As a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, MANDALA symbolises balance and positivity. Bringing this interesting concept to the dining table, MANDALA is where you can achieve a balance of both work and play.

The interior of MANDALA exudes fun and lively vibes that make it perfect for parties and events. I notice one of the walls is beautifully mounted with a gigantic wine display, adding a sense of luxury to the overall ambiance.

For greater privacy, you can book the VIP room (*minimum spending is required) and enjoy some relaxing moments here without having any disturbance. This posh space is usually reserved by high-profile individuals or celebrities, for instance Datuk Jimmy Choo and Datuk Wire Lee Chong Wei who were the customers of MANDALA too.

Its menu features an eclectic mix of Western cuisine with Asian touch, wine and booze. Here we begin our meal with a toast. The house pours are pretty decent but if you prefer something sweeter, try the house cocktails and be surprised!

Tom Yum Popcorn Chicken @ RM16

As a starter, we go for some savoury snacks which are fried to golden perfection. Be careful, they are served piping hot from the kitchen. We love the delicious whiff of spicy-tangy tom yum coating and the ultra tender texture of the boneless spicy crispy chicken pieces. Those who prefer something with bones may opt for the deep-fried chicken wings.

Mussels with Garlic Toasts @ RM33

The crowd’s favourite appetizer of the evening is the green mussels served in homemade lemon, garlic and butter sauce. Aromatic, buttery and zesty, it is a palate-opening combination that leaves us craving for more.

Golden Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti @ RM28

Like many cafes, they serve a wide array of pasta but what’s unique here is the Asian twist added into the dish. The signature spaghetti here is drenched in Asian-style buttermilk sauce, and generously crowned with one whole crisp soft shell crab.

Black Angel Pasta with Grilled Chicken @ RM18

If creamy sauce is not something you fancy, try the one coated with special herbs and garlic sauce. Taste wise, it is more earthy and less heavy on the palate as compared to the buttermilk sauce.

Grilled Chicken with Buttermilk Sauce @ RM20

Similar to the signature pasta, the grilled boneless chicken here also uses the signature buttermilk sauce as an accompaniment along with garlic toast and side salad. Good to have the sauce served separately, so that we can enjoy the juicy chicken on its own or with the sauce.

Pepperoni Pizza @ RM18

The pizza selection is aplenty here too. Be it the classic beef pepperoni pizza or the innovative smoked salmon pizza, it has a very thin, crisp crust and generous amount of toppings. Great for communal sharing.

Smoked Salmon Pizza @ RM22
Smoked salmon, cream cheese topped with wasabi mayo

Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream @ RM16

When it comes to the sweet ending of the evening, we dig into not only one, but two indulgent chocolate desserts. First is the freshly baked rich chocolate lava cake that oozes out creamy goodness from the crust, whereas the second is a crisp warm chocolate brownie stuffed with bits of nuts in it. Simple and sweet!
