Zest @ The Sphere

This friendly cafe serves simple Western fare in a relaxed setting; nothing special, but sufficient for a pleasant, not-too-pricey meal.

Heading here for a light nibble after having dinner next door at Simply Mel's, we were in a purely pumpkin state of mind, so this creamy, flavorsome pumpkin soup seemed like a safe choice, costing below 8 ringgit (!).

The pumpkin salad was hearty enough, with plump prawns to provide protein.

House-pouring Chardonnay. Wine is offered by both the bottle & the glass.

Everyone leaves this place long before their cars & chariots turn into pumpkins; the restaurant closes slightly before 10pm on most weeknights.

  4. Kenny: pumpkin, old cucumber & carrots! Sounds like the start of the makings of a mighty fine soup! Now if only we could find a prince-turned-into-frog, we could make frog leg & veggie broth! :D
    J: heheh, gluttony is the most enjoyable of the seven deadly sins! =)
    Missyblurkit: I hope to try their main courses someday too! The lamb and beef dishes sound like they'd be pretty decent :D
