Vibes Bistro & Grab It Soft Serve @ Utropolis Marketplace

Glenmarie's new Utropolis Marketplace mall is beginning to blossom with eateries; Vibes is probably the best-looking of the preliminary lot, serving conventionally familiar fare to satiate the lunchtime crowds, including nasi lemak with sotong sambal (RM13.90) & butter cream spaghettini with curry leaves & baked cherry tomatoes (RM13.90).

Lot G-B1, Utropolis Marketplace, Jalan Kontraktor U1/14, Shah Alam, Selangor. Daily, 10am-10pm.

Grab It offers soft serves in Asian flavours like Japanese matcha or Thai cha yen tea; we like the coconut, which is pretty satisfactory for a relatively low RM4.90 per cup, reasonably smooth, with mellow, well-tuned tropical nuances. The cafe also features warm snacks (steamed or fried mantou stuffed with choices like grilled beef or smoked duck) & ice-blended drinks.

  1. Who's that at the bar??? All dressed up, like he's ready to perform or something.

    1. Suituapui: I noticed that sharply garbed youth too ... But I have no idea who he is or where he was going! ;)

    3. Fuadkyoto: thanks for clearing up the mystery! ;)

  2. Prices are surprisingly reasonable but Shah Alam is an area that I hardly venture to.

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, i'm not often in this area too ... though glenmarie is only about 10 mins from subang jaya ;)
