Blacklist restaurant at SS2 can be exciting when it comes to their name, but when it comes to food and drinks, they have too little to offer with the few pages of menu. Interior was designed with lots of black and nice pendant lights, with lovely segregation for diners to choose between cosy indoor and breezy patio.
The restaurant seems popular for couples and lovebirds with shisha also available for shisha lovers. Their menu consists all of the usual local and western favourites such as a variety of fried rice, pasta dishes and salads. Atop these offerings, you’ll find assorted mains from the barn or sea. It was a disappointment to not find any fresh herbs or fresh grated cheese and pastas served plain with add ons at additional charges. Tom Yam Carbonara (RM 12) with added beef (RM 5) wasn’t too bad all thanks to sharp flavour of spices from Tomyam. Aglio Olio (RM 8) with added mushroom (RM 5) wasn’t my favourite and I obviously wouldn’t recommend it.
Grilled Salmon (RM20) was served to the table with a nice plate and side salad sloppily prepared with very little effort to earn any appreciation, with a cheap cut salmon placed atop mashed potatoes which happened to be the only thing decent on the plate.
Drinks menu offers a good spread with what’s very popular and highly on demand in town; coffee range. And on top of that, they play with interesting and creative concoction of their own so you’d find things like hot Pandan Macchiato (RM 9) and Lemon Passion fruit Tea (RM 6).
The not so challenging ones (like yours truly here) can very well settle with safer choices (it was a wise move); Green Tea Jasmine (RM 8).
The neighbourhood would find dining at Blacklist somewhat fascinating from time to time but anyone from distance would oppose, since this area is already saturated and well known for many other cafes and eateries. However, the Blacklist would be the very few with shisha in the restaurant so shisha fans would know what’s the right place to go within SS2.
