Set Lunch @ Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe

Much has changed since the last time we visited Giza Sunway Mall at Kota Damansara. The last time we were there, many shops were not opened yet. But today, a few months later, all the shop lots were rented out, with many interesting food and beverage outlets.

One of them is the Fullhouse Lifestyle Store and Cafe. We've seen this cafe at another mall in PJ, but hadn't had a chance to try it until today. (N.B.Just noticed that this post was published on Saturday 2:10am, so the day should read as yesterday, not today.)

I particularly like the look of the cafe with its artificial hedge, lawn, plant pods and white picket fence. The waitresses were outfitted in a typical English chambermaid uniform while the waiters were garbed in white tops and black pants, reminiscent of the British India houseboys during colonial times. I almost expected the place to serve fluffy Isle of Wright scones with clotted cream and strawberries (my all-time favourite), but no, I wasn't that lucky.

Instead, it has a rather varied menu, ranging from local to western dishes. The set lunch menu caught my eye. There are 4 sets but the one that interested me was the Tracy's Favourite Meal. For only RM16.90, it has forest mushroom soup, pan-seared fish with Asian vegetables, tart and iced lemon tea. Most places do not offer their set lunch during the holidays or at weekends, but Fullhouse does. More power to them! Both hubby and I ordered the same thing. Yeah, we're not terribly imaginative when it comes to food.

Forest mushroom soup

Pan-seared fish with Asian vegetables

Chocolate tart

All are yummy!! We'll definitely be  back to try other things on the menu, especially the ala carte.

If these 3 dishes tasted as good as they look, it's a splendid restaurant, indeed! Great job with the aesthetics. It's quite a skill to make mushroom soup look like anything other than... well... dog vomit, to be frank. It's not one of life's prettier foods, but they've dressed it up quite nicely. :-)

I never quite thought of mushroom soup in the same breath as dog puke, but now that you mentioned it, I must say you are quite

I love the soup best, amongst the 3 dishes. It's real home-made stuff, and not Campbell soup with ingredients added in to fake a home-made look or taste, like some cafes tend to do.

I really wish I could eat the extra 35 points we are allowed each week. Every time I do eat them though I end up gaining weight or not losing at all, which doesn't seem possible. I have done WW so many times in my life and I have never been able to use them.
