When I received an invitation email from Nigel to join MAX privilege card for free, I wasn’t really paying attention to the content of the email. So on the night when we celebrate Jackson’s birthday at Kelana Jaya, I was told that MAX will be having a special treat for cardholders and floggers, a scrumptious indulgence at KL’s best kept secret – the boutique boulevard of Jalan Bangkung, Bangsar on 25th of August.
WMW helped me to register my name for the event (thanks and plenty of kisses, sister!).
Our agenda for the day:
1. 4.30pm – Fit For 2
When I first heard the name, I thought it’s too weird for a café or restaurant to be named like that. Heck, I was half right after all. Fit For 2 is a health centre for mommy and babies, as well as mommy-to-be and consists of a small café. (Yes, you heard me right, babies need exercise too!) It is run by the same owner of Bisou, thus that explain the cupcakes that were served that day.
Pretty little cupcakes which are rapidly gaining their popularity among the residents of KL. The orangy colour ones are orange-vanilla with strawberry cream frosting, brown – peanut butter and chocolate. I didn’t try the peanut butter but the chocolate cupcake did tastes a little too sweet for me. The orange-vanilla strawberry one is not bad, tangy, buttery flavour with a tinge of sweetish aftertaste.
Tuna sandwich. Although the tuna spread was just nothing ordinary, taste pretty much the same as canned tuna spread, I like the texture and softness of their bread. They’re thicker than usual bread and I feel that as if I’m having sponge cake instead of bread. We also had chicken sandwich and smoked salmon bagels.
2. 5.00pm – Spanish Fiesta @ Cava
We adjourned to Cava Restaurant and Bar next. Cava takes the name Spanish Denominacion de Origen (the geographical origin of a wine)… Cava, where sparkling wine is produced in the similar method as champagne. Cava also means “cellar” in Catalan.
We were served with their famous Sangria, a type of Spanish cocktail and an array of Spanish dishes ala buffet style.
Spanish Lamb Boulette. Teckiee and Jackson love it.
Paella Mariscos or Seafood Paella. Just look at the amount of prawns, mussels and mushrooms laid on it! Now this is my first time sampling paella and it turns out a bit disappointed. The paella is too wet for my liking. Is paella supposed to be like this?
