The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @ Damansara Kim, PJ

Cutting-edge cuisine has its place, but sometimes you just want a hearty meal with your favourite comfort foods. We’ve heard many people saying, “As everything around us changes faster than ever, there’s always comfort in things that stay pretty much the same” 🙂
Which what makes one happy.
In this era of food anxiety, it’s no wonder we sometimes feel the need to throw the book away and tuck into foods that remind us of simpler times.
Like what we felt when dining at:

The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery



During the past years, we noticed many young restaurateurs has stepped up to the mark and opened their own independent ventures. And this include Marcus & Mei Wan, these are the 2 brilliant partners behind this restaurant tucked away on the shop-house street in PJ.
With an infusion of energy, delicious food and fresh ideas, these youthful crop of business owners is forseen to rise to the top and, at the same time, helping to shape the future of the local dining industry. Oh yeah.

Opened just this year, Marcus & Mei Wan originally runs a supper club based in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur. With this new outlet in town, they continue to serve Modern American comfort food using local produce.
During the day, they serve pastries, breads, cakes other sweets at their bakery. As the night pours in, their restaurant is ready to serve dinner plates for sharing. So, you get different kind of experience at a different time 🙂





We love how simple yet sophisticated their interior turned out to be as you step in. Clean, bright, white plus wooden furnishings.




Sharing pitchers
Lemongrass & ginger fizz – RM25
Highly recommended by Marcus, it was really refreshing and a clean start to our palate before the indulgence.



Dinner for sharing

Small Plates
Citrus salad, grilled calamari, capers & shallot vinaigrette – RM24
Nicely presented with its colours from the citrus fruits, the combination of calamari and greens was really matching. Chewy and moderately flavoured.



Large Plates
Pork belly, apple reduction & watercress – RM46
Absolutely adore this portion of pork belly. I’m personally not a big fan of fatty meats but you just gotta have a few bites. The amount of lean and fats were just right and not overly satiating. With combination of sauces from the apple reduction and mash beneath that balanced the flavours of sweet and catchy, it was memorable.




Buckwheat fried chicken, thai basil crisps & pomelo salad – RM38
Also known as their flagship chicken, it was really crispy and aromatic. It’s been a while since we really enjoyed fried chickens. Haha.




Dark Chocolate Tart with Almond Tuiles – RM15
Crunchy, crumbly and very enriching!



Earl Grey Crème Brûlée with Shortbread fingers – RM15
Fragrant and creamy, there’s really nothing like cracking through the caramelized sugar layer to reveal the smooth custard underneath. And the shortbread made us missed Scotland so much!
