With so many cafes and restaurants popping up in Bangsar, it can be quite a challenge finding an eatery that serves something different yet tasty and worth your money.
However, take a stroll down Jalan Telawi and what you’ll find is the delightful Table9, a café that serves Italian cuisine with a Korean twist.
Set in a rustic and minimalistic setting, the café’s interior design and menu were crafted by its Korean owners, Min and Eve, who were inspired by similar fusion cafes in Gangnam, Korea.
The dishes served here have mostly Italian with Korean ingredients, giving them unique yet scrumptious flavours.
Here are some of Table9’s delicious highlights – UPPRE-approved!
1. Pizza Miele e Formaggio
With a crispy base, this pizza is topped with Gorgonzola cheese and honey, which melts and indulges your taste buds with the first bite. Best eaten hot out of the oven.
2. Omelet Breakfast
Perfect for starting the day, this dish makes a satisfying breakfast. Fluffy vegetable omelet, juicy grilled chicken sausage and beef bacon with hashed tomatoes and potatoes cooked with flavourful spices – what’s there not to like?
3. Sauteed Mix Mushroom Salad
For vegetable and mushroom lovers, this salad is just for you. Crisp leaves, shredded carrots, chopped tomatoes and mushrooms cooked in spices served on a platter, this dish is garnished with Grand Padano cheese and Balsamic dressing.
4. Table9 Picante Cream Risotto
For those who love their food spicy, this is a must-try. Cooked to a velvety texture, you will love the creamy sauce mixed with Korean spices, vegetables and seafood that is poured onto the rice, giving this Italian plate a rich and heavenly flavour.
Served with beef bacon and mushrooms, this dish is drenched with spicy tomato spaghetti sauce to add more “oomph” to your dining experience.
6. Baked Eggplant
Slices of eggplant are baked to a soft texture, topped with melted mozzarella and vegetables – a perfect blend of creamy and delicious.
Don’t let this dish’s simple appearance fool you. With a creamy and cheesy coating, this Alfredo’s rich taste is balanced out by fresh broccolis and beef bacon. Perfect for those who can’t handle spiciness.
8. Tomato Bingsu
Sweet and sour meet in this unique and tasty dessert; while bingsu is a Korean snack made out of shaved iced milk, the tomato puree as the topping is what gives this dish a surprisingly delightful Korean twist.
