DU Project – Departure Lounge

Somewhere last year…

Janvier: Come, let’s do breakfast at Departure Lounge one day!
Me: The one at Aman Suria?
Janvier: Yesh! Got a lot of travelling books to read there too!
Me: That’s why it’s being called Departure Lounge?
Janvier: Yesh!
Me: Okay!

But somehow, the plan never worked out. And then, the people behind Departure Lounge decided to move the outlet to Damansara Uptown in March 2010. The DU Project gang were excited, especially Penguin as she loves sandwiches.


The place is brightly lit, thanks to the large window panels. Outdoor tables are available for smokers. The menu is quite extensive, with choices ranged from sandwiches, pastas, soups, juices, coffee and teas. You would need to choose your order from the large menu, pay at the counter and you will be given a number. Plain water is FOC.
For the sandwiches, you can choose your preferred bread and add another RM2.50 to get a side order of nachos and dip. The girls are happy with the Ham & Cheese (not set, RM10.90) and Tuna (set with nachos, RM11.40).



If you don’t like sandwich, try Caesar Wrap (set, RM13.00). The neatly wrapped lettuce with hard boiled egg and chicken strips in tortilla was quite good, albeit the price was a bit high though.


The pasta, however, lacked the taste of pesto and a bit overcooked – the rosemary marinated grilled chicken, being a winner here, outshone the pasta.


Penne in Tomato Sauce was okay, Penguin loves her Caramelised Banana on Toast; the bananas were caramelised perfectly and not too sweet, wild mushroom soup was decent – not the canned type and Chorizo Arrabiata Spaghetti (RM16.90) was quite good as the chorizo lend a smoky flavour to the pasta.

Despite some hit and misses, I think that Departure Lounge did pretty well on their first week of opening.

  1. Still rmbr I purposely went early for breakfast at the Solaris outlet, but then it was closed! Grr …. then forgot bout this place ever again.

    Til you mentioned the other day. I would love the simpler choices, like breads, pancakes and such.

    How’s the environment? As homely/comfy as the original outlet?

  2. @Yiling, fan of airport? Hehe..

    @Daniel, yes, now you know 🙂

    @J2kfm, I have not been to the one at Mont Kiara but from pics, I think Mont Kiara’s more homely.

    @Janvier, their breaksfast is still waiting for us to go together!

    @Babe, overall, it’s pretty decent, won’t go wrong 🙂

  3. Hmmm.. the chic in rosemary herb is a winner alrite..but I used to love the bagels. Last week, my salmon bagel was kinda sad. Well, I do think that their pricing stil a bit on the high side. But the sandwiches here certainly beats o’Briens!

  4. this departure lounge is not worth going to.i know the owner Annie Loo, Loo Chee Wei their father is Loo Sek Choy Plumbing Construction very big towkay and they just opened the lounge for fun,thats why!

  5. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping
    it up all over the web without my authorization.
    Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.
