At Solaris Mont Kiara, Pin Shan Private Collection Cuisine will open its doors on 24 September, 2010 (opening hours are from 11.30am to10.30pm). It takes over the defunct Taiwanese Zhen Shan Mei which is also owned by SW Concepts. This new eatery is said to serve Chinese food. A peek in the place revealed no change to the decor. Also newly opened within Solaris Mont Kiara is Lamasi Cafe at K-01-08. The cafe serves wood fire oven pizzas, shisha, smoothies and lattes.
Across the road is Romulus Hub, a cafe that just opened on 3 August, 2010. They serve coffee, pretzels (including stuffed pretzels), freshly baked tortillas and thick toasts. The place sports an Italian look with a colouful mural with Italian symbols like the Arena and weirdly enough, a Ferrari (not the real thing though).
The garlic herb thick toast is not bad, sandwiched with some cheese and drizzled with honey. Hot chocolate wasn't too memorable in terms of taste since it lacked any chocolatey taste.
In Desa Sri Hartamas, Devi's Corner is closed and temporarily operating from the side area. They will be moving to another corner (of course) and this time it is nearer Finnegans and opposite Exotic. Also next to it is a fairly new Japanese place called Shunjuku. Along the shops near Blackhole, there are three new eateries: Froyodeli, Boomba Time Taiwanese Restaurant and Pizza Brava. Pizza brava serves wood fire ovens and was formerly at Hartamas Square (now torn down for a Police Station). Froyodeli serves up frozen yoghurt whereby the selection is very limited though with only two flavours: natural and strawberry. You also get to add your two favourite toppings with your yoghurt. The Taiwanese place looks interesting with bubble tea and Taiwanese small bites. At the other side, next to Jade Pot and the same row as Fong Lye, there is a new Japanese BBQ place called Gyuichi. A Little Dim Sum Place has also reopened in Desa Sri Hartamas. You can find them at the old BBQ Chicken corner lot, same row as the Japanese restaurant Kin San Kichi which is still going strong.
