Let me start by saying that dining at MELT: The World Cafe was just divine. In fact on a perfectly lazy afternoon where all you want to do is chow down good food and enjoy great service – this is the place to go.
The absolutely delicious food from a variety of international cuisine types will leave you wanting more. I’ll (try to) let the photos do the talking with minimal commentary in between.
Several kinds of Indian bread, curry and sauces. What’s not to like?
Thai spring roll and prawn dumplings. There was also tom yam soup and other thai cuisine but these were all I took (in my camera and on my plate). Point to note: the wasabi sauce was extremely yummy!
Sushi and sashimi – two of my favourite food ever!
Sushi was sushi, but the salmon sashimi was fresh and nice!
Along with these Japanese food was also soba noodles:
In the middle of the room is this huge table filled with all kinds of smoked salmon. I am such a huge salmon fan and this made me really happy
Here’s a close up on one of the different kinds of smoked salmon (so as not to spam my own blog lol):
(I still prefer my salmon raw tho)
There were also mussels on this seafood-centric table:
Different types of bread:
And a pretty selection of cheese:
The cutest food on display were these quail eggs in ketchup (with caviar):
there were also different kinds of roasted meat (the beef was said to be extremely delicious)
The prettiest thing on display at this buffet was this chocolate fondue fountain. I ran to it. Literally.
Check this out, there were mini waffles and all sorts of fruits on sticks for you to dip the chocolate on. It was too cute for me to handle!
They had pretty interesting fruits that I’ve never had with chocolate before. Starfruit, dragonfruit and persimmons:
I tried them all
Selection of cakes. Nothing too spectacular, cakes are just cakes.
Yummy agar agar:
You can also request from the staff at the dessert counter for home made ice cream (with or without waffles). I didn’t try this but the most often request made was for the strawberry ice cream, so it’s gotta be good! There was also traditional desserts like ice kacang (or was it chendol) that the staff will prepare for you on request!
We really enjoyed dining there, slowly eating cuisine to cuisine (I didnt take photos of everything) – taking our time on a casual weekday afternoon. Between the desserts and the savoury stuff, I’d have to say the savoury food takes the prize. Everything was delicious We’d certainly come back here one day, as we didn’t try out every single thing.
The lunch period is from 12 noon to 230 pm, though the restaurant is opened for both dinner and breakfast as well.
