Heaven Cafe @ Ara Damansara

9 07 2010

Heaven Cafe is a newly opened restaurant located at Ara Damansara. Situated just a few doors away from Pet Icons, we were rather intrigue by this place when I drove past there last week with my colleagues. Obviously, curiosity got the better of us and we decided to try out this place. First thing I noticed was the interior decoration or rather the lack of. The walls are painted with dull dark gray and the overall ambiance was quite bare. Nevertheless, despite the featureless interior, their food presentation was thankfully, a stark contrast.

According to the owner, the chef was based in Japan previously and learned a few culinary tricks while he was staying there. She elaborated that all their food are cooked without MSG, and hence the natural flavour.

First up is the Baked Tuna Penne (RM 9.90).

Apart from minced tuna, the dish was prepared with five kind of herbs. The inclusion of yellow cucumber was the first I seen in any dish.

The whipped potato which is made by themselves tasted really different. Instead of the powdery texture from those fast food restaurant, this one was a real deal. Overall, I am quite happy with it. I couldn’t taste any MSG and my throat certainly did not felt dry from eating this dish.

Next up is the Basil Spinach Fillet (RM 11.90). As you can see, the fillet is soaked with olives oil.

There were  also criss-cut potatoes and herbs.

One noteworthy feature is the half cut onion which is something different in terms of food presentation. And being a lover of onion (not many people are), I find it to be quite tasty.

We also took the Tomyam Chicken Chop (RM 9.90). Mixing Thai flavour with Western style cooking is one of the fusion dishes that Heaven Cafe offers.

According to the owner, the Tomyam paste is made by themselves rather than buying it off the shelves. Every morning, the chef would blend certain ingredients together to produce the paste. She also mentioned that this is a crowd favourite so far. But according to my colleagues, the Tomyam taste was not as concentrated as she would like it to be.

Mango Melon Chicken Chop (RM 9.90) uses pure vinegar and capsicum for its dressing. Apart from the obvious mango and melon slices, there were also mash potatoes…

And finally, one of my colleague took the Chicken Chop with sesame dressing (RM 9.90). The unique sesame white sauce is certainly nice as commented by my colleague. The restaurant owner said that the sauce is made by themselves.

Similar with the rest of the dishes, they also included the yellow cucumber and mash potatoes.

Heaven Cafe will be rolling out more dishes in the forthcoming months. The lack of manpower is currently a problem for them and hence the limited choices in their menu. Overall, I find their food presentation to be fantastic. Their unique blend of herbs and other natural ingredients is certainly something to be applauded although taste wise, certain dishes could fare better with some fine-tuning. Undoubtedly, the price is something to be taken note of as other places would probably costs more for these sort of meal.
