Zouk Cafe Bar @ Mid Valley


After all the hype, Zouk's foray into The Gardens might seem underwhelming at first; the restaurant and bar look handsome enough but aren't particularly dazzling.


It's still worth a visit though. The place is calm and spacious, the staff members are genuinely friendly and the food is reasonably satisfying.


Skewers of beef bacon wrapped around wild mushrooms, pimento & cheddar cheese, served with tomato chutney. Juicy and fairly flavourful.


Sesame-crusted tuna grilled with lime & coriander. The slabs of fish could have been fresher, but at least they were thick and succulent. Loved the wasabi aioli dip.


Seared scallops with chilli, mango, pomelo salsa & lemon wedge. Sufficiently meaty, but too ordinary-tasting to really recommend.


Balinese Satay (chicken fillet grilled with lemongrass, tumeric & cumin, served with pickled cucumber, peanut sauce & kicap manis). Tender and well-marinated.


Tofu and shitake mushrooms grilled with ginger, served with pickled radish & miso sauce. Kinda bland, but we're probably biased, since we were never fans of tofu anyway.


Tray of 10 Sex On The Beach shooters. Terrific value for money.


Carrot juice & Butterscotch milkshake.
