Fifth Palate @ Kota Damansara
I was at Fifth Palate for lunch on a weekend and the cafe was running on full capacity. This place is often thronged with patrons during the weekends, so waiting is inevitable during peak hours. Located at Kota Damansara but not exactly the busiest district of that area, Fifth Palate nestled at Encorp Strand Garden Office which is opposite The Strand Mall (beside Giant Hypermarket)
Sunlight floods in through the huge glass windows, the cafe has a lovely aura from its bright white theme completed with plenty of dangling lights, wooden tables and metal chairs.
Outdoor seating is available as well but the low tables are not suitable for dining though, perhaps a relaxed coffee session.
Pepper, sugar and salt in laboratory flask 🙂
Long Black (RM8.00)
Drunken Frenchman (RM28.00)
The dish did a hint of visual excitement as soon as it was served. There’s so much happening on the plate, French toast, caramelized banana, bacon, house made peanut butter, Guinness Stout reduction and Forty Licks Vanilla ice cream. The whole combination supplying a bery of invigorating flavors that provide a huge satisfaction to the palate!
Check out their house made chunky peanut butter, it’s divine.
Aburi Salmon (RM 35.00)
Salmon fillet of your preferred done-ness topped with torched chili lime mayo lays on bed of red rice cake served with mixed salad. The fish was flaky and the chili lime mayo beautifully elevated the overall flavors of the dish. The richness and creaminess of the dressing is more than superficially striking, love it!
Soursop Yogurt (RM5.00)
House made yogurt also available in other flavors such as wheatgrass, mango and original.
Forty-Licks Salted Caramel ice cream (RM6.00/scoop)
Verdict: Their menu definitely offers something different compared to other cafes with a combination of Western and Japanese dishes. We were happy with the food we had this time and certainly don’t mind to come back for more.
