Review: Thyme Out at Mayang Oasis and Pastel at Setiawangsa
1. Thyme Out
Tex-Mex mania is spicing up this small corner of Petaling Jaya, thanks to a bunch of fajita-loving friends who’ve started a stall this month at the Mayang Oasis food court, a sheltered location to complement their often rain-disrupted food truck in Subang.
From tortilla wraps to quesadillas, Thyme Out serves the ideal sort of guilty pleasures for night-time crowds who throng this venue (also known as PJ Old Trafford) to catch football match screenings.
Soft tacos stuffed with pulled lamb, cheese, pineapple salsa, lime & sauce cost RM9 apiece (chicken’s even cheaper at RM6).
Basic nachos start from RM7, topped with tomato salsa, jalapeno mayo & lettuce. Add another RM4 to beef up the basket.
Finals Thoughts on Thyme Out
Complimentary disposable gloves are available to help keep fingers free of saucy stains. Thyme Out’s food is tasty enough, assembled to order & served satisfyingly hot; no complaints whatsoever.

2. Pastel Cafe
Bonus stop for halal-assured Tex-Mex fare: Pastel, a little cafe in a Setiawangsa shop-house.
Tacos are also a speciality at Pastel, filled with lamb or beef for RM18 per plate of two.
Texas Burger’ with hand-pressed beef patty (RM16); the tacos & burgers come with fries. Perhaps not memorable enough to specifically travel to Setiawangsa for, but probably worthwhile for folks who live or work here.
