Lunch with Louisa @ El Meson, Bangsar

At Louisa's recommendation, I decided to give the lunch set at El Meson along Jalan Telawi 3 facing Bangsar Village 2. I'm guilty of always being in the vicinity of the mall rather than exploring the rows of interesting dining places that line the streets just outside.Image Hosted by

El Meson is a Spanish-themed restaurant with a moderate crowd on most days. The lunch sets come in 2 courses or 3 courses, with the customary appetiser, main course and dessert. The course one does not include dessert. Louisa and I decided to take one 2 course set and one 3 course set to share the dessert. The waitress was young a Filipino girl who didn't speak English well, and she gave us weird answers when we asked her about the items on the menu. Like when we asked, "What is the Soup of the Day??" and she kept saying,"Nicoise Salad with Chicken or Pate on Toast.". In the end, we had to ask her to call another waiter who took our orders. The girl was good-natured though and laughed along with us at her mistake.

I chose the Nicoise Salad with Chicken for my appetiser.

and Louisa had the Soup of the Day which was Broccoli Cream
My salad dressing was a pretty nice combination of olive oil and herbs. The chicken was a bit dry but otherwise was marinated well and flavourful. I didn't fancy the Broccoli Cream because it was weird to me but Louisa liked it.

We both had the Pork Tenderloin with Gravy and Mash Potatoes.
The meat was slightly more done than I would have liked it but I enjoyed it otherwise. The gravy was smooth and creamy. I loved it. I couldn't place the ingredients though. We were so full when the waitress took away the plates that we were half-inclined to forgo dessert. Louisa had recommended El Meson's infamous Molten Chocolate Cake which I had placed the order in earlier. A waiter came up and told us that the Molten Chocolate Cakes were 'not fresh today' (?) and offered us anything else from the menu. In the end I just decided to go all the way and settle for a Chocolate Cake.

I didn't regret my choice. The texture was buttery smooth and so chocolate-y we were smiling with the sugar high after-effect. Haha. Not bad for a total of RM54.50. I shall come back one day just to sink my teeth into the Molten Chocolate Cake!! Who's with me??
