Saffron Mediterranean Bistro

The word Mediterranean derives from a Latin word "
mediterraneus" meaning "in the middle of earth". If it is seen from the geographic point of view, the name Mediterranean means the sea being surrounded by the land. Refer to the world map to know more

What about Mediterranean Cuisine? I guess it's about food of the areas around Mediterranean Sea.So, I visited Saffron Mediterranean Bistro with the gift voucher sponsored by Tanjung Rhu Resort Langkawi for our staff party. This is the new outlet which is located in a new area named Solaris, Mont Kiara and this is my first time visiting to Solaris. I am so outdated

Saffron Mediterranean Bistro @ Solaris, Mont Kiara

Berry Choc @ RM 9.00, Amaretto Freddo @ RM 9.00 & Pineapple Juice @ RM 7.00 (left to right)

Cream of Wild Mushrooms @ RM 8.00 & Seafood Garlic Soup @ RM 8.00
Berenjenas al Andalusia @ RM 12.00 & Pollo de Ajillo @ RM 12.00

The drinks and tapas doesn't please us much. Time took to serve the drinks were too long. Where is our capucinno? As for soup, it's just normal. Nothing much to comment. For delicious tapas, consider Sentidos Tapas @ KL Plaza!

Chicken Quesadillas @ RM18.00

Spiced Prawn Quesadillas @ RM 18.00

Spiced prawn and chicken quesadillas, were served with grilled tortilla (a plain round flour cake) wrapping spiced prawn/ chicken, tomatoes, red beans, jalapeno (chilli pepper) and pineapple. The dish is served with 3sauces which is salsa sauce, sour cream and guacamole (mashed avocado). The chicken quesadillas tasted good with humble portion of grilled chicken wrapped with tortillas but the spiced prawn quesadillas, I can hardly see the prawns. A tasteful spanish dish!

Cod with Pimientos @ RM 35.00
Pan fried Cod Fish with zucchini, bell peppers and asparagus served with roasted pimientos sauce and sweet potatoes. Although it's pan fried, the juiciness of the fish is maintained. The tastiness and freshness of the fish makes this dish a highly pleasing one.

Latino Chicken Fajitas @ RM 18.00
Marinated chicken grilled to perfection served on hot plate with sauteed onion, bell peppers and vegetables salsa sauce. Together the tortillas, salsa sauce, sout cream and guacamole were served. You may wrap the chicken fajitas with tortillas and sauces. The Chicken Fajitas were well marinated and it's delectable!!

Ala Carbonara @ RM 18.00
For me, a delicious carbonara should be creamy and yet light in taste. This is definitely a satisfying Carbonara I have tried. It's creamy but light in taste, spaghetti served with bacon, mushrooms, grated parmesan cheese and egg yolk.

Well, I expected some special Mediterranean cuisine but dishes served by Saffron Mediterranean Bistro were just some normal dishes. I guess Mediterranean cuisine means the cuisines from different countries surrounding the Mediterannean Sea. For a restaurant which is classified as fine dining, the food qualities were considered average but satisfying but could be much better. Maybe, it's still very new......Work harder ya!!
