Kakatoo at Ativo Plaza, Bandar Sri Damansara: Restaurant Review
Bird-watchers can consider fluttering over to Kakatoo, a parrot’s paradise of a restaurant with a colourfully feathered setting at Bandar Sri Damansara’s Ativo Plaza.
Creatively conceived crepes might make some customers coo here: We rather like the signature one (RM16+), well-stuffed with a fried egg, chicken ham & mushrooms.
No-fuss comfort food; adventurous diners can also order a Malaysian-influenced crepe that’s filled with a fish fillet, mango kerabu & Nyonya gravy. Maybe we’ll try that one next time.
Kakatoo’s owner freely acknowledges that the idea for this charcoal-coloured Moo Moo Crepe (RM20.90+) stuffed with a beef patty, cheese, pickles & aioli dressing comes from MyBurgerLab’s signature burgers.
Naturally, sweet crepes are on the menu too. No regrets gobbling up this sugar-packed one, elegantly plated & generously laden with apple compote, oatmeal crumble, salted caramel sauce & vanilla ice cream. RM14+. Cool prices here.
The Rest of the Menu
The rest of the menu is somewhat something-for-everyone: smoked salmon fettuccine & lamb shanks for fans of Western fare, alongside cencaru fish with stuffed sambal, curry fish head & otak-otak for local cuisine lovers.
Surprise! Wine’s available; the red turns out to be a sweet Lambrusco (RM80+).
What we like about Kakatoo is that it’s confident enough to be transparent about its inspirations.
Ativo Plaza’s kinda nice, a family-friendly complex with outdoor playgrounds, fountains & plenty of space for strolling.
