The Embassy Café At The Starling Mall Damansara Uptown

 The Embassy  Café  
Generous With Their Flavours & Portion
The Embassy Café  At The Starling Mall Damansara Uptown
Ever get fed up with the chic coffee and dessert cafes that seem to focus more on their "hipster" decor, only to then be let down by their lacklustre food with bite-sized portions?

The Embassy Café, which is located in the new shopping mall, The Starling Mall in the vicinity of bustling Damansara Uptown neighbourhood, prides itself in serving hearty portions, all-day dining and freshly brewed coffees/teas.

During a recent sampling of the menu, we tried of The Embassy Cafe signature food and drinks. My foodie friend, Ivy Kam opt for her Ice Mocha drink while I picked an interesting tea from their selection of 'Speciality Teas By Tear Drop'. 

I have been quite fond of tea-drinking ever since being introduced to the fine teahouse of Betjeman & Barton recently. Read My Full Review Of Betjeman & Barton Afternoon Tea Review HERE

We started off with some healthy and nutritious - A balanced meal of Oriental Grilled Ribeye Salad. Chargrilled Ribeye on a bed of Asian greens, tomatoes, cucumber and cilantro served with sesame-soy dressing. Topped with fine white and black sesame seeds, I find the salad refreshingly and good to eat - filling enough for a meal, especially for weight-watchers as this beef salad gives you a good balance of vegetables and protein.

Well, you're not a beef eater, choose from the other two salads such as Nordic Salad (Golden crispy soft-shell crab on seasonal greens served with spicy house dressing) or the Classic Chicken Caesar (Traditional caesar salad served with beef bacon, croutons, shaved parmesan, poached egg and anchovies).    

SynFull Roast Chicken Quarter RM 26 Half RM 35

My favourite dish on the menu has to be the SynFull Roast Chicken! Made with great affection, the good grade chicken is well-seasoned and marinated with special herbs and spices before being slow roasted to perfection in the oven.

Served with seasonal vegetables and rosemary butter potatoes, the serving portion is generous for a half chicken and this makes a complete meal for two or three even. Although it comes with creamy mushroom sauce but I find the chicken is juicy and flavourful on its own without any sauce. SynFull Roast Chicken is definitely one of the gems on the menu. A MUST TRY! 😋😋😋

Another hot favourite in their pasta menu is the Carbonara. Those who enjoy a truly hearty dish will find comfort in this delicious pasta dish. A lovely dish of silky smooth creamy sauce with spaghetti cooked with beef bacon, mushrooms and parmesan cheese. Surprisingly it was a hit with my hubby, Uncle Hong - someone who is never a great fan of carbonara dish.

Finding authentic local dishes, that taste as good as mum's food can be challenging. The Embassy Café has dishes to whet your appetite - Serving up local dishes, made with family recipes belonging to the proprietors of the restaurant, the cafe endeavours to bring homemade flavours back to the dining table.    

Those who is not with Western dishes will find comfort in local delights such as Ayam Pindang Sumatera, Embassy Nasi Istimewa, Ayam Masak Merah 'Uptown' and Nasi Lemak Kg Pisang to tempt your taste buds.

Embassy Nasi Istimewa RM 28
I love my Embassy Nasi Istimewa for its amazingly delicious ayam pindang, a Sumatran dish. Full of flavour, fragrant with fresh herbs and spices, this is one good chicken dish you must try when dining here. It was my first time trying it and I loved the combination of ingredients in the dish.

Serving portion again was aplenty again with homemade fried rice served with spicy anchovies and tempe sambal, fried cabbage, ayam pindang, papadoms, kerabu mangga and topped with sunny side egg.

Truly a wholesome dish with all the condiments and don't let the ayam pindang gravy go to waste as best eaten with some warm white rice too! So tolong "Tambah Nasi - Satu!" 👍👍👍
