Ate_Cetera @ Hartamas Shopping Centre


Sri Hartamas' latest restaurant makes lovely use of its sprawling space, comfortably catering to more than a hundred customers in a bright, leafy setting. Its extensive menu is another attraction; patrons can eat their way through from eggs en cocotte to slow-cooked beef ribs, served with contemporary flourishes.


Highlights span both East and West, from hearty rice-with-salad bowls topped with pan-seared salmon, avocado and furikake seasoning (RM35) or sweet-sour ox tongue with egg (RM38) to a whole duck confit leg with waffles, tomatoes, caramelised onions and a thick helping of truffle butter (RM40). If in doubt, order the duck, which scores solid points for sheer succulence.


What we liked best at Ate_Cetera was the yam tiramisu, delicately creamy and deliciously flavoured, strikingly served in a dim sum basket (RM24). The fruits-crowned charcoal pavlova is a interesting creation that colourfully illustrates how the restaurant has lavished a lot of thought and effort on its menu, though the overall effect might be a tad too sweet for some (RM19).

The coffee here also showcases a sense of fun; the popcorn hot latte and cincau iced latte are both enjoyable.

  1. I love the decor especially that wall of plants! And I am very intrigued by the yam tiramisu and the "bejeweled" charcoal pavlova.

  3. Goodness! All those plants up the wall. Are they live plants or fake? It does look nice, I must say, regardless. The yam tiramisu - seeing how it is served in a bamboo steaming basket, was it steamed, not baked?

    1. Suituapui: I guess it’s mostly artificial foliage, but ya, it adds a nice touch ;) actually I think the tiramisu is served in the basket but it’s not actually cooked in it ;)

  5. I was wondering what that thing was in the dim sum basket! @_@ Those hearty rice bowls look like a very balanced meal to have. Hmmm, cincau with iced latte is a departure from our usual Michael Jackson. I once had coffee jelly with iced coffee and the combo turned out to be very weird for me! :P
