Lunching at Jarrods, Damansara Heights

Since we are on the topic of executive set lunches, let me post another set lunch review that I had recently at Jarrods in Damansara Heights. I was there for a light lunch with a friend and then I saw a placard at the doors displaying the executive set lunch menu at their in-door restaurant. At only RM25++ for a 2-course lunch inclusive of either tea or coffee, I thought it was quite a steal.

Jarrods Lunch
Starting with soup of the day which by now I have completely forgotten what it was. Could be somekind of seafood bisque or chowder. Anyhow, I remember enjoying the soup. (Sorry people for not being more descriptive).

The choice of mains on that day was between a pan-fried barramundi or grilled pork loins. I chose the barramundi but swapped the sides of roasted potatoes for the mashed pumpkin which I love.

The barramundi was served with a side of a tangy and sweetish sauce in a shot glass, of what looked like some kind of marmalade relish or sauce. The fish itself was quite "fishy" in taste (my friend had to ask for some lemon) but if taken together with the sauce, it was quite alright. I like the mashed pumpkin a lot though.

And with a perfect cuppa freshly brewed coffee to finish off, you won't hear me complaining at all.

Hi Christy,
I normally like barramundi too but it turned out to be a tad too "fishy" that day.

Hi Joe,
Yep, but the set lunch is only available if you dine at their indoor restaurant.

Hi Daphne,
One look and one could tell that it's a good cup of coffee, eh? ;)

Seeing u may have a sweet tooth, u may wana check out this place called “sbread” at Midvalley Gardens (Lower Ground Floor, in between the Old and New wing). I’ve sorta tried it in Bangkok before. Really good old fashioned toast with a generous topping of Kaya (that’s really out of this world!!). The kaya has 3 flavours. My favourite is the Yam coz it has REAL yam chunks in it and it’s served hot on your toast. The other one is pandan and vanilla kaya. Apart from kaya, they also hv other interesting spreads like chilli paste with shredded chicken floss. Very unique.

Worth checking out!
