Watercolour at Mont Kiara and Uneed at Solaris Dutamas: Restaurant Review
If we had to paint a mental picture of Watercolour, it’s one of those cafes that flies under the radar, quietly churning out good sandwiches and pastries for its fans.
Not your standard sandwiches
Watercolour isn’t content to serve the same old stuff available anywhere. Its Beef Burger Gipfel (RM19) features an Aussie meat patty stuffed with fresh veggies in between croissant-like flakiness. A fun change from ordinary burgers (tastes healthier too, like a real balanced meal).
European bread recipes do feature prominently on the menu: Watercolour’s hot dog takes a chicken mushroom sausage and jams it into a laugen lye roll, topped with mustard, mayo, olives, onions and gherkins. With potato crisps on the side, it’s a fair bargain for RM14.
Cakes and Pastries
… to cupcakes, cookies, doughnuts and muffins. It’s a smorgasbord of starch; note that air-conditioned seating is limited here, so most customers will have to take a table outdoors. On the bright side, parking is a breeze; plenty of visitors’ space inside the Mont Kiara Meridin building.
Location and Contact Details:
Less than a five-minute drive from Watercolour, there’s Uneed, another low-profile cafe, this one tucked away at the back of Solaris Dutamas, behind the primary stomping grounds of Publika.
The menu’s eclectic
Caesar salad with oak-smoked salmon, nasi kerabu and burgers of Arab bread filled with beef, chicken or even ikan bilis. But we skipped the savories and tried only dessert: This thick, doughy creation with strawberries, mascarpone cheese, cranberry sauce and almonds seemed interesting but tasted a bit too tart. Maybe the savories would fare better.
