Today the hubs decided to bring us to try something new for lunch. So to Bangsar South we went! We were impressed that within a short span of one year, so many eateries have opened up at The Sphere. We were there for the first time over a year ago and The Sphere was still pretty much empty with only a few eateries. The lifestyle hub now features about 24 restaurants as of end May 2019 and does not only stop at local cuisine but a host of international options as well. The Sphere is split into four levels with its anchor tenant, Aeon MaxValu Prime Super-market, covering a large section of the lower ground, acompanied by Miniso, Juice Lab and SOG Eyewear.
After a 15-20 minute walk around The Sphere, deciding on which restaurant to try, hubs finally settled on a new eatery ~ The Farm Foodcraft, which we later found out from the staff that it opened its doors just 4 days earlier. No wonder the menu was still pretty limited. Hubs ordered almost all the main courses in the menu and we left feeling totally satisfied with our meal! We were told by the staff that more exciting items to the menu is under way.
Inquisitive me also found out from the staff later that the herbs and some of the vegetables that we had in our salad were harvested in the restaurant’s own urban farming lab within the compound of the restaurant. What they can’t grow, they source from the local farmers and vendors. There’s no middleman, no long drives to a remote farm for organic produce. Their ingredients get to the kitchen the same day they’re harvested.
Happy Harvest salad and Green Supreme juice for me. The salad serving is pretty huge and is enough for our family of six.
Ox tail soup and truffle mushroom soup, both served with a crispy thinly sliced of buttered toast.
The main course items on the menu are fusion inspired and combines the best of both Asian and Western worlds. The creamy mushroom pan mee with an assortment of different mushrooms (with sambal as condiment) was superb and curry beef lasagna comes with a bowl of mildly spicy aromatic curry.
East Meets West curry noodles is a flavorful curried broth with noodles and seafood. It’s spiciness level is so mild that I can stomach it very well. I can’t take the typical fiery Malaysian curries but this spiciness level is perfect for me!
Everyone’s favorite dish here – Nasi Kerabu with very aromatic herbs and spices in every mouthful of rice.
Kuih Gulung is a marriage of Malay and Western flavors where the traditional Kuih Ketayap is metamorphosed into a whole new image, adorned with ice-cream and caramel cage to give it a restauranty edge. The ultimate utopia was that moment when I took the first bite ~ the familiar fragrant dessicated coconut cooked in palm sugar nestled within the soft pandan kuih, oozing out as I popped the spoonful of kuih into my mouth, heaven! One mouthful is definitely not enough. I can actually chomp down the entire kuih by myself and not share it with anyone! The girls can take the ice-cream and spun sugar, not the kuih! This has to be one of the yummiest desserts I’ve ever tasted.
It’s not easy to please my bon viveur hubs and he’s pretty happy with the food, service and ambience. We’ll definitely return again; this time to try their new dishes. We’ll order the Nasi Kerabu and Kuih Gulung again for sure.
After our meal here, we segued into Sunbather Coffee for desserts! That’ll be in another post.
