I was invited to MediTeca's trial run this afternoon to review their food.
Headed by Executive Chef Manuel Lopez, the Spanish-Mediterranean menu certainly did not disappoint, and this is coming from someone who hasn't had proper Spanish nor Mediterranean food.
It was definitely fun spraying balsamic vinegar and olive oil onto our bread.
Smoked salmon salad with avocado.
Hands down, one the best salads I've ever had.
We also had shots of tomato gazpacho.
To be completely honest, I never thought I would like gazpacho since it's cold soup.
I'm a warm, hearty soup person and MediTeca changed my mind.
Poached egg (not exactly though) with mushrooms, potatoes, sweet onion and a truffle emulsion.
A lot people will be less cranky if they had this for breakfast.
Skewers of tomato and mozzarella and basil air.
Lightest salad I've ever had, and I'm not complaining.
Paella with chicken and vegetables. Yum!
It's enough for 4 actually, so be warned.
Baked chicken breast rolled in spinach and ricotta.
Thank goodness that this portion is tiny!
Yoghurt mousse with mango cream.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this fluffy dessert! The yoghurt isn't too sour and the mango cream isn't too sweet.
Lemon meringue pie in a martini glass? Yes please!
The catalan cream foam is similar to crème brûlée, but with a foamy base.
The warm chocolate fondant with vanilla ice-cream is my absolute favourite. The combination of vanilla ice-cream with lava cake never fails to soothe the soul.
With vanilla beans bespeckling the ice-cream, it is without a doubt that the ice-cream was homemade.
Restaurant manager Alex Schulz and Executive Chef Manuel Lopez.
My sister and I had a wonderful time at MediTeca. The food was fantastic, service was excellent and the ambience was relaxing.
The best part? It's not pretentious at all, and the prices are quite competitive.
Alex and I were talking about how some restaurants here are getting boring and in his words, generic.
With a little bit of marketing, MediTeca can be one of the best restaurants in the heart of KL.
MediTeca will be officially open next week, and will be officially launched in September.
