Cafes has not-so-subytly been sprouting up all over the place but boutique café is still on the marginal. Viv’s Boutique Cafe & Restaurant @ TTDI means serious business when it comes to feeding their guests. This boutique lounge café allow guests to comfortably relax themselves over the beautiful setting, very classic and elegant English look, segregating them from most hipster cafes in town.
With the interior, a semi casual, pestle toned and neatly chic, the restaurant is located at a rather odd and not too commercial spot in TTDI, but serves up a fine menu of contemporary fusion cuisine. Each dish is nicely presented and infused with complex flavours .Salmon really standout and serves with good portion satisfying for one and great for small eaters to share. Mango Injection Salmon (RM 35) here was cooked very perfectly with fish still looking translucent and pinkish on the inside. The mango flavour fuses really well with very sweet and tangy finishing.
Caesar Salad isn’t something I would recommend but here is an option for the grazers, as well as a perfect communal dish.
Another perfectly crafted dish is the House Chicken Cajun (RM 23.90) serving a plump slice of deboned chicken thigh, on a bed of mashed potato served with sautéed vegetable with Pomodoro sauce. Everything on the plate was well seasoned and the tender chicken so perfectly cooked was very memorable.
Mushroom Soup (RM 15.80) wasn’t the best I have had but was a comforting starter. Served with toast bread, this one was least to my liking mainly because I really dislike coarse shitake blend.
Apparently the dessert choices were aplenty to choose from. The assortments ranged from pancakes to cakes and ice creams to brownies. Here is a slightly overpriced vanilla scoop with brownie chunks mixed with chocolate syrup and beautifully garnished and presented in as a Chocolate Aquarium (RM 17.90).
Pancake were decent but wasn’t mesmerizing so the hardcore fan of pancakes would have no regrets skipping this one. Towered and layered with kiwi and banana slices in between each pancake, and accompanied with honey to drizzle is more appropriate for tea time or breakfast instead of dessert.
