BAE - Build And Eat, with Maerry: Me @ Telawi, Bangsar

Offering 22 dishes at RM2.50++ each, Bangsar's new BAE seems like a boon for economically precarious times: The menu features familiar favourites from Malaysia & our Southeast Asian neighbours, offered in tapas-style portions - choose from servings of rice (such as nasi lemak, nasi pandan, nasi perang, nasi telang & nasi goreng sambal), noodles (including Indomee goreng, assam laksa, soto ayam, mee Siam & mee kuah ketam) & sides (boneless ayam masak Bali, ceriping ikan, bayam & more).

Three servings should suffice for a reasonable lunch at a total cost of RM7.50; six servings would be a fulfilling dinner for RM15 - not bad for a contemporary eatery in Telawi. 

Flavours are competently tuned, with sambals that pack a fiery punch, plus sauces & soups that prove fragrantly spiced - each recipe is a mini version of the real deal. Ultimately, this is a fun way to savour a variety of temptations in one meal. As its name reflects, the restaurant is run by very much a youthful team.

If you're willing to fork out more, the kitchen also offers larger dishes such ayam goreng berempah (RM14.90), beef satay (RM16.90 for five sticks) & lamb shank mysore (RM42.90).

BAE shares its space with another concept-driven business, Maerry:Me, which specialises in crowd-pleasing Malaysian beverages that can be served in two-drinks-in-one partitioned 'kahwin cups' (RM11.20++) - select from enjoyable flavours like Soursop With Yogurt Balls, Milo T-Rex, Soya Cincau Selasih, Lychee Ribena, Cendol & many more.

  1. Ooo...I love this concept of small portions...kinda like boat noodles only more choices of food. I like that I get to try many types in one sitting...and RM2.50 sounds mighty fine in these times. Only problem - parking! :(

    1. Contact.ewew: that's a good comparison - these servings are roughly boat-noodle portions indeed! the difference being that you get to try five different types of noodle bowls if you want to, for RM12.50++ :D this is just across the road from bangsar village 2 though, so you can park in the mall :)

  8. Going there today! Driven by the promise of small portions with an attractive variety. I do wish that the plastic use in the beverage section could be minimise.
