Peter & Mawar @ Sunway Nexis, Kota Damansara

Peter & Mawar is clearly a labour of love, blooming with quirky artistic details in its decor. The menu seems thoughtfully considered too, with some unconventional enticements - pastas include 'rotini' corkscrew pasta with 'smetana' sour cream & salted egg yolk soft-shell crab. But when we saw Sarawak laksa on the list, we ordered that first; sadly, it proved really oily, with prawns that could have been fresher. We then skipped straight to dessert, opting for the cafe's interpretation of 'pisang goreng cheese' - also in need of better ingredients & execution, missing a punchy sweet-salty wallop of flavour. There could have been teething issues with the kitchen (this visit was a few months back), but we hope that Peter & Mawar has since secured the right team to implement its ideas for a rosier future.

  1. I really like the wall murals!

    1. Linda: they're quite nicely done! :)

  2. That was Sarawak laksa? Gee! I thought it was some kind of fusion pasta dish. Even the sambal belacan does not look the same. Such a lovely place, too bad the food isn't as great. Name sounds like a couple in an inter-cultural marriage or something.

    1. Suituapui: yeah, the name of this outlet is really unique! :)

  3. What a pretty spot Sean. I sure would like to try a bowl of their laksa.

    1. The Yum List: i'm always game for a serving of laksa :)

  4. A place brimmed with artistic vibe!

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, interesting decor :)
