The Lawn by Marmalade
By now, most of you should know how I abhor dining at Suria KLCC since I have tried almost every place. Last weekend, I was so happy to discover a new place which took over the Secret Recipe spot. Although given a different moniker, it was still recognisable as part of Marmalade as they added a teeny weeny indication of the link on the signboard.
Since we had eaten lunch, it was just a few quick sweet treats for the day. I have zero resistance when it comes to cupcakes hence we went for their Tiramisu Cupcake (RM5+) and Carrot Cupcake (RM5+). They also had Vanilla Strawberry, Oreo and Lemon Coconut flavours that day.
I loved the decor of the cafe starting from their quirky signboard, the white plastic chairs with a lace motif and the flower shaped wooden tables. Little touches like the potted plant and the birthday candle to signify the number of your order was also very sweet and unusual.
Back to the cupcakes and the verdict is - Tiramisu is the winner. Consisting of a light sponge base, it was slightly soaked with a light tasting coffee based syrup. Topped with creamy mascarpone cheese, it was yummy and so light. The carrot version is based on their famous carrot cake. However, this cupcake felt short as it didn't taste quite fresh as it was slighly hard.
A peek at their menu indicates slightly different items from Marmalade. There's breakfast items known as day starters available from 10 to 11.30 am like pancakes, banana bread and a breakfast burger with a choice of turkey ham or smoked salmon for about RM14 to RM18. Marmalade is famed for their salads and there are a few funky ones here ranging from RM16 to RM18 - greek, caesar and corn stack.
They have also introduced new items like the pide pizza with various toppings for eat lovers or tropical (the chicken and pineapple). Pides are Turkish flat breads which are now used as sandwiches. Alternatively choose from their sandwiches (which has a selection of different breads) which have choices like BLT (the classic combo of bacon lettuce and tomato), egg, avocado and mediterranean salmon.
Pies are also available - Aussie Beef Pie, Chicken, Turkey Ham and Corn Pie and for the vegetarians, Spinach and Feta Pie. Served with mash potato, peas or salad, these pies are priced around RM18. If you prefer something richer, they also have quiche - smoked salmon, turkey ham or spinach. Last but not least, pastas are also available at RM19 - spaghetti carbonara, spaghetti Alio Chili Garlic Prawns and lasagnas. Those with a sweet tooth will enjoy cupcakes and I think I spied scones also at the counter.
I'm pretty happy with the discovery of this place, makes me look forward to a trip to Suria KLCC for now as it means I get to try out something new.
