Last of the Happy Mansion Saga? (MM Cafe)July 12, 2011 | 13,606 views
#1 – Fancy walking out from a cozy cafe situated on the ground floor of a block of flats? To imagine the convenience of it all if you’re a resident.
The slew of food posts from Section 17 probably has gotten into you. If you’re tearing your hair out and shouting profanities of the most vulgar nature, then I don’t blame you. There has to be an end to all saga, and for temporary relief measure, this post would be the last.
Not absolute, but relatively. There are still a few gems that I want to unearth (or rather, rediscover?) such as the seriously dilapidated food court (of a very muhibbah nature) near to the wet market, and the rojak + cendol mobile stall parked under the shades almost directly opposite of the market.
Since this has been barely two days into the extremely looonnnnggg and tedious week (no more historical Saturday in the making?!), I will spare you the elaborate ramblings and let’s get things on.
Read on for the full (partial or what’s left of it) review of MM Cafe @ Happy Mansion, Section 17.
#2 – Fish & Chips (RM14.90/USD5) – Two bread crumbs-coated dory fillet (not mine, hence I assumed they were dory fillets) with a wedge of lemon, and fries.
#3 – Part of the Friday Continental Set Lunch (RM14.90/USD5) – Grilled Chicken Chop. The set came with a drink too.
#4 – Beef Stroganoff with butter rice (RM16.90/USD5.60) – One of MM Cafe’s signatures as highlighted in their menu, though did not impress me much.
#5 – Brownies with Ice Cream (RM10.90/USD3.60) – Now this was on almost every single table. Hence it’s a no-brainer. Worth the try, since the warmed chocolate brownie was not of sickeningly sweet proportion, nor the vanilla ice-cream melted into a mess before you can even dig in.
#6 – Latte with a piece of Biscotti (RM5.80/USD2) – If I recall correctly (I usually don’t), they serve Lavazza coffee. Or was it Illy? Hmm …
#8 – Someone took away a whole block of almond sugee cake but Motormouth had none …..
#9 – Sadly, nope. MM = Mastermind. Motormouth would be cool though. Seriously.
A fine spot for lunch, tucked away from the congestion in and around the area. Especially that perpetually jammed Rothman roundabout. Amazing how the traffic lights have yet to operate.(Have they?)
Food was nothing out of the ordinary, but the brownie was delicious. At least for that price and you get almond flakes on the warmed chocolate decadence with melting vanilla ice cream. Parking’s a cinch too, since the flats have plenty of vacant lots and it’s FOC.
