Gaja @ Bangsar


A stylish bistro located beside the new Zinc Art Space. Service is pleasant and the food is well-prepared, though the menu kinda lacks an imaginative spark.


Wild mushroom soup with bread tuille. Tasted really fresh, with lots of aromatic mushroom bits swimming in the not-too-creamy soup.


Otak-otak fried rice. Generously filled with seafood. Spicy enough to make our tastebuds tingle, though the otak-otak was pretty ordinary.


Chicken burger. Would be better as a beef burger, but at least the patty was thick and succulent, nicely smothered with cheese, pine nuts and mushrooms.






Gaja,
Jalan Maarof, Bangsar.

  3. Not Gajah or Ganja but Gaja? Maybe we're supposed to add in the extra letter ourselves... Hehe.

  5. lfb: yeah it's weird. should have asked them about the reason for the name. assuming it's pronounced the way it's spelled, then most people will think the place is named "gajah" if u mention it verbally...
    qwazymonkey: just close your eyes, open your mouth and swallow! :D

  10. Hmm given that it's an art space, surely they could fire up something more thought-provoking than fried rice and chicken burger?? Perhaps all the creative energies were spent by the time they got to figuring out the menu!

  11. min: yeah, the menu could definitely use some tweaking! it's pretty much stuff that u can get at dozens of other outlets. but at least the recipes are artfully presented :D
