After dropping Drama Queen at her friend’s house in Bangsar today, the foodie hubs brought us along on his foodie trail in search of gastronomical food. What makes my man happiest is food, basketball and more food 😀
Now you see why I cannot afford not to exercise 5 times a week? I would expand just like my man if I do not do this.
First stop today was at Sitka @ Batai Village, Damansara Heights, a restaurant opened by one of his friends. Sitka is a Malaysian-Scottish collaboration that’s determined to deliver innovative cooking fuelled by local produce. While waiting for the food to arrive, the foodie hubs told us that we would all be awaiting a little surprise with what would be served. This meant celebrity chef dishes. Customers can expect to pay rational prices for satisfying meals that transcend run-of-the-mill recipes. He was right. We were really satisfied with the top-notch food (taste and presentation), executed with much effort and ingredients.
First dish that arrived was salt baked beets with chickpeas, cilantro, humus, peas and orange. The beets were tender, juicy and flavorful. Healthy and full of fiber, I loved this salad dish.
Below – lobster roll on charcoal bun with pickled baby radish, hard boiled mashed egg and grilled sweet corn with cheese.
Below – pulled beef brisket with flat bread. The beef brisket was full of aroma and taste, juicy and tender and paired well with the flat bread.
Below – we then moved to the next entree featuring roast seabass with yummylicious sambal atop served on a bed of roasted carrots, pumpkin puree and crushed roasted peanuts.
Below – roast chicken was wholesome and comforting. The meat was moist, juicy, flavorful and perfectly-done.
After lunch at Sitka, we walked a few doors away to Yellow Brick Road & Wicked Pancake Parlour, as we had initially wanted to lunch there but there were 8 tables booked ahead of us, so we put our name to book a table. I was already pretty stuffed with all the delish food at Sitka but the foodie hubs wasn’t exactly done yet with his foodie trail so…

Yellow Brick Road & Wicked Pancake Parlour
Yellow Brick Road shares a same corner lot with Wicked Pancake Parlour in Batai Village, Damansara Height (near Bangsar). They are run by the same folks.
Yellow Brick Road is the home for Malaysian Barista Champion (2013-2015) and their punch line is “Built for Dreamers for Dreamers”
Their customer load is normally very massive during the weekends and today was no exception.. thus we had to make a booking and then walked over to Sitka for our entree before going back to Yellow Brick Road and Wicked Pancake Parlour for desserts.
We intended to tuck into only their pancakes but something caught the foodie hubs’ eyes and he ordered a Balik Kampung dish with poached egg and mango kerabu!
An Asian local main course that lives up to its moniker, tastes like home, something that your mak will dish out when you “balik kampung” (going back to your hometown). The percik chicken delivers juiciness, flavors, aromatic spices and ain’t that spicy. Though we were already stuffed up to our noses, we could still wallop the entire plate of dish.
The Rubic’s Cube crazed princess…
Below – chocolate brownie topped with an ice-cream – everyone’s favorite. Gawd, this is the 2nd time this week that we had chocolate brownie with ice-cream. And I still have an outstanding post on our foodie trail with the hubs done on Wednesday, which was a public holiday.
Below – Nangka (jackfruit) pancake and Apam Terbalik pancake.
The pancakes were fluffy and pillowy. Each plate of pancake was accompanied by a cup of aromatic gula melaka syrup and a scoop of ice-cream.
