Wondermama @ Bangsar Village

Dancing Squid
Dancing squid - RM15.90

Wondermama is not new and has been blogged, raved and reviewed by many so I will not go into details of the interior / concept / origins etc (plus, this is already 5 months backdated visit). I too, like many, absolutely loves the concept and interior deco. Anything ol' skool and vintage seems to catch my attention and the same too seems to catch on with the society these days. Perhaps there is no smoke without fire to the catchphrase 'Old is Gold'.

Nasi Lemak 2.0 with soft shell crab
Nasi Lemak 2.0 - RM16.90

Since old is the new 'new', WM takes on the classic Malaysian favorites but improvises with a twist / tweak of the original recipe. Such creativity from the kitchen can be seen from the menu offering of Nasi Lemak 2.0, Otak-otak sandwiches, Pizzas on naans, or WM's version of Maggi Goreng or Soup.

We sampled the Dancing Squid for appetizers as it looks awesomely delicious on pictures. The pictures did not deceive, I love the warm broth that brought hints of celery and fish roe with the fishy squid flavour, it was so good we slurped every drop! The improvisation element in the Nasi Lemak 2.0 is the replacement of the usual chicken rendang or kampung-style fried chicken for soft shell crab instead. One thing I can assure you, anything with soft shell crab is a sure-win though some may consider paying 30% - 40% extra for a plate of nasi lemak that has soft shell crab is foolish -- but hey, rental ain't cheap! 

Kimchi Burger
WM Kimchi sliced beef burger - RM15.80

I am not a fan of Korean food with exception for bulgogi, so it was surprising that I craved for the Kimchi burger after seeing it online and decided to give it a shot. Life is full of surprises, I tell you -- I actually like the Kimchi burger! (though not Kimchi on its own) I guess if you're looking for out-of-the-ordinary burgers, do give the Kimchi burger a try.

Durian crepe with ice cream
Durian crepe with ice cream and cereals - RM6.90

Curiousity kills the cat in me when it comes to durian-flavoured desserts. So when I saw this on the menu with all eyes focused on the somehow imaginary bolded words of durian with capitals, I have to give it a try! It came served in a tin mug (don't the older generation used to use these mugs to brush teeth as seen on tv??), the recipe is nonetheless simple: one scoop of vanilla ice cream, a durian crepe, topped with mixed muesli and cornflakes in a tin mug. Nothing big on taste, just few simple but comfort ingredients whipped up as a dessert to end the meal on a sweet durian-ish note.

Generally, I do like WM for the ambiance and deco and would not hesitate to return to try out other items in the menu.
