|With one of my wicked sister. Does she look familiar?|
This was a weekend brunch with my Wicked Sisters, kak Shan and Kak Sarr. So called because we went to see Wicked together a lifetime ago in Singapore. That, and because we really are wicked. Sometimes.
|Starter: grapefruit salad. OMG. A+|
|Hawaian Burger. The pattie is home-made, not Ramlee ok... A++|
|Pancakes with mascarpone cheese, maple syrup and strawberry and mango. Definitely wicked!!|
|Mutton briyani with cucumber raita, curry and veggies. Excellent!|
|Spaghetti with meatballs. Chicken!|
|Desert was the reddest Velvetest cake. A++|
Citrus is this really down-to-earth restaurant in Bangsar Village. It was CNY weekend and the mall crowd was sparse. I wouldn't have given the place a second thought if it was just me finding a place to eat that day in Bangsar. Well, I might have admired the flowers but that would be it.

Therefore, I wasn't expecting much from Citrus, even though I was impressed at the menu selection. They had pancakes--which I love but really hard to come across unless I go to Paddington's, enormous burgers, different kinds of spaghetti and briyani (really?) at the same time. Talk about 1Malaysia. I am baffled by the restaurant name though. It doesn't reflect the menu at all. I was expecting Orange Duck Kang Pao, or Pineapple upside-down cake or General Tao's Lemon Chicken. Something like that anyway.
So I am happy to say that the place is Awesome and the food was Delicious (notice the capital A and D). It was extra awesome because I didn't have to pay for it (that's the best thing about going out with my Wicked Sisters, they treat me like I am the baby sister that I am. And spoil me rotten :).
By the way, there's an awesome gym too in Bangsar Village that accepts children while you sweat yourself skinny. Which is essential if you want to eat at Citrus often. Wicked!
