#Foodpost: Great food & Wine @ MANDALA, Publika

Great day peeps! Hope you've been having a great one this week! Here's another post about a a place I recently stumbled upon together with my foodie friends of mine - MANDALA CAFE & BAR @ Publika. We were greeted with a modern setting upon arrival with high bars stools and tables which exudes a classic feel. Just the perfect place to wine down and chill on a mid week!

At MANDALA, its not your typical cafe/ restaurant where you dine and leave. They aim to bring about a concept of togetherness where you can chill, dine and relax with your friends and family. They also offer a VIP lounge for those who would prefer some privacy (with a minimum spending).

Many celebrities have also visited this cozy cafe here at Publika. To name a few, 

Our famous local fashion designer Dato Jimmy Choo himself

And our very own "Jaguh Kampung" - Dato Lee Chong Wei!

Moving on, here's some of the Starters that we had during our visit!

Tomyum popcorn Chicken

*Paired with MANDALA's house Pouring wine - Chateau Haut Riot Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (France)

I personally love the wines served here at MANDALA. I thought it has a nice aroma and soft to it

Fried Chicken Wings

A great sides to go with my glass of wine! Very lightly battered coating of sweet honey garlic sauce spreads evenly. Crispy and good!


Lemon, Garlic & Butter Mussels

A very light side dish - A great balance of sour & salty to it. Definitely a great dish to start off your dinner!

As we are done with our starters, it's time to for the highlight and the MAINS of the night!

Pepperoni Pizza

Grilled chicken with Buttermilk sauce

Another highly Recommended!!! dish I would recommend here at MANDALA! 

If you're dropping by MANDALA after reading this post, you've definitely not miss this plate of protein. Chicken was very well marinated and cooked to perfection retaining its moisture in it. Complimented by butter milk sauce which is slightly spicy that adds a little more "kick" to the grilled chicken. 

Black Angel Pasta with Grilled Chicken

It has a very strong herbs taste which coats every strand of spaghetti. If you like the fragrant herbs taste, this would be it!

Golden Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti

The Spaghetti is cooked to Al dante which has just the right texture topped with a whole Soft Shell Crab! A great combination of the lightly flavoured pasta accompanied by the flavourful crab. Definitely a MUST TRY here!!

Finally, despite the full meal, we still had space for some desserts!

Chocolate Lava Cake with Ice Cream

I am always craving and looking forward to try lava cakes like that and this certainly did not disappoint me! Loving the combination of warm from the lava cake and cold from the vanilla ice cream!
