Sometimes as a treat for lunch, my colleagues and I will pop over to this cute little cafe. Marmalade, its whimsical decor, a vast selection of magazines, and more importantly, the enormous range of healthy and delicious food is often what brings us there when we’ve got a bit of extra cash to splash.
The salad menu is a delight with names like ‘Sounds of Havana,’ ‘Oceanic Citrus’ and ‘Avocado Accents’ how can you even resist? Today Aida and I decide to share a bowl of ‘Sounds of Havana’…this is a melange of roasted chicken cubes, pineapple chunks, red and yellow bell peppers, nuts, halloumi cheese, and a pineapple vinaigrette.
Look at all the colors! Aren’t they festive? This was wonderful, with the sweetness coming from the pineapple…with the smoky roasted taste of the chicken…and a distinct salty touch added with the halloumi cheese. Oh, so good!
I thought the salad wouldn’t be enough (turns out I was wrong), so I ordered some pita bread with a tapenade dip and a hummus dip.
The pita bread came out nice and warm…the tapenade was delicious…chunky enough to make out the kalamata olive pieces with a durable salty and tangy edge…it is nicely evened out with smooth olive oil. So much olivey goodness! I honestly could make a meal out of that tapenade, and pita…the hummus is mild and creamy…This is right on its own. but even better when paired with the tapenade…the flavors tend to round out…
This healthy meal came up to RM27. A little pricey for lunch…but when you factor in the nutrition value and the taste…it’s worth every penny!
