It's a nice play of words, Palate Palette - a mix of food, art and creativity all under one roof. We wouldn't have known about this place if not for some of the K.L food blogs, and I'm glad we made this one of our stops during our trip. There's a very laid-back atmosphere to this little hideout (bar included too by the way) and it makes for a very casual and pleasant venue for gatherings and good conversations.
Decor here is eccentric at best, there's nothing fixed or organised in terms of colours and types of furniture, but somehow or another it just blends together into a lively, artistic "mess" of sorts.
We liked the painted walls, with their floral and space-like motifs filling the otherwise plain white-washed walls.
For a breath of fresh air (and when good weather permits), have a seat outside.
The Mushroom Cappuccino was a slight variation from Palate Palette's mushroom soup, with foam milk on top of the lightly creamed (homemade) stock. I think the table had a preference for thick mushroom soups, so this came out as too diluted for our liking.
An appetiser to share, but the Chicken Lollipops were quite ordinary and were marginally saved by the roasted chilli mayo dip that's served alongside the dish.
Lamb & Onions
Not everyone takes to lamb because of its "smell" and "taste" (I'm using inverted commas here because I personally don't see anything wrong with lamb), but the Lamb & Onions helps in more ways than you can imagine with the delectable medley of Honey Worchestershire marinade, mint yogurt sour cream and dash of curry spices. This was our favourite dish for the afternoon - top marks for creativity.
Fish & Chips
A crowd favourite, the Fish & Chips was aesthetically pleasing with the skewer of potato and yam chips. I thought the chips outshone the otherwise typical breaded Dory fish. Interesting addition of fried wanton skins, but it didn't quite fit somehow.
Ease off the warm weather with an ice-blended Cappuccino Crush, guaranteed for that sugar and caffeine rush :D
RM20++ for the set lunch, consisting of an appetiser/soup, a main course and a drink.
