JIN Gastrobar at Aurum Theatre has launched its new all-day set meals, serving up blockbuster flavours from morning to night in The Gardens Mall.

With a choice of appetiser, main course and drink starting from RM48, the set showcases a starring role for international crowd-pleasers like Steamed Barramundi with Organic Sauce, Chicken Schnitzel, Primavera Pappardelle and more. 

Whether you're seeking a sleek space for a business lunch, a serene spot for a me-time meal or a stylish setting for a romantic dinner, visit JIN Gastrobar for its show-stopping sensations.

Select from three choices of starters, thoughtfully crafted in generous portions.

For Japanese-inspired fun, munch on Wakadori Karaage, chunky-crunchy bites of batter-fried chicken, joyously juicy, served with sweet-sour honey mustard and tonkatsu sauces, balanced with fresh kale and a squeeze of lemon to brighten up the platter.

The Wild Mushroom Soup is a familiar favourite that's expertly executed, tasty and textured with a thick medley of shiitake and shimeji mushrooms, complete with sliced baguette toast.

The visually striking Melon and Beetroot Timbale is another meat-free treat - delicately layered watermelon with beetroot for crisp, cool dimensions of fruitiness and earthiness to revive the palate, rounded out with wholesome coriander leaves, fiddlehead and pine nuts.

For the main course, fans of fish can feast on Steamed Barramundi with Organic Sauce, fabulously fresh and flaky, garnished with a gentle Thai-inspired turmeric sauce and bok choy on pumpkin puree. A wonderful workday recipe to keep us satisfied and energised.

Inspired by European brasseries, the Chicken Schnitzel is a heartily robust crumbed chicken breast fillet, savoury with Spanish anchovies, comfortingly cushioned with a creamy mash.

The Chargrilled Chicken is a protein powerhouse, meaty with subtle smokiness, nourishing with roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes and beetroot sauce. A fuss-free, fulfilling platter.

Primavera Pappardelle is the vegetarian option - Italian pasta tossed in punchy tomato fondue sauce, lusciously loaded with zucchini, broccoli, mushrooms and Parmesan cheese.

The set's price is based on the beverage. The most cost-conscious choice is coffee, tea or soda for RM48 - an americano of the Lavazza Gran Espresso Brazilian Arabica blend with notes of dark chocolate and spices or English breakfast tea by Tea Drop, a potent, full-bodied black tea.

The set costs RM53 with a non-alcoholic Mocktail of the Day, such as the super-refreshing Peach Sunrise, a blend of passion fruit juice with peach puree, grenadine and ginger ale.

If you want to unwind with beer or wine, the set costs RM63 with Guinness Draught or RM68 with the Wine of the Day, potentially the De Bortoli Winemaker Selection Shiraz, supple with the ripeness of raspberries and blueberries.
