Year End Promos at Just Heavenly, Bangsar Shopping Centre

Yeah, you didn’t read it wrong, it’s another post about Just Heavenly. The hospitality here is so fabulous I just keep going back! Well, this time, I was there to try out some of their new dishes and got to know the new promotions they have rolled out just before the festive season. So let’s get straight to it!

Cakes are the true MVP at Just Heavenly. But sometimes it can be a guilty pleasure to just buy a piece of cake. What if I tell you, that you could offset the guilt by adding a salad? That’s right, the Saint and Sinner promotion here does just that. You buy a slice of cake and get 50% off any salad! Here are the options:

Chicken Char Siew Salad. This one is popular.

Tuna and Pasta Salad. Slightly on the more substantial side due to the carb.

My favourite was the Quinoa and Pumpkin salad, with medley of greens topped with some feta cheese. The garlic oil just brings all the flavours together so well.

Some of the cakes we got to sample, including the new Black Velvet. Instead of the usual chocolate sponge, it’s made with Black sesame for that surprisingly savoury touch. Yum!

Just Heavenly serves just as delicious savoury dishes as their cakes, shame that not a lot of people know about this. Which is why they’ve decided to introduce the rice plates as their lunch special. Another great option for office lunch or just lunch meeting at Bangsar Shopping Centre. Because…. let’s face it, there aren’t exactly many cheap dining options there. With a price tag of RM17 (with Ice Lemon Tea or upgrade to coffee for another RM5), it’s pretty good value for money.

Butter Marsala Chicken. Their take on an old favourite. The curry looks fairly rich but surprisingly tasted quite light to me. Which is perfect because we don’t want it to be too cloying right? The curries are all made from scratch here you can even taste the freshness. One thing I would say though it’s a little on the healthy side as I think they use mostly chicken breast.

On the other end of the spectrum… if you love all things deep fried, try the Tempura plate. You get fish fingers, sizeable prawns and vegetables all coated and deep fried properly so it’s nice and crunchy, served on a bed of sweet and sour sauce, done with just enough of sweetness but plenty of piquancy to cut through the richness of the fried stuff. All the rice plates come with a refreshing side of pickled vegetables too which I enjoyed.

Last but not least, the Chicken Katsu Curry. It might be Japanese in origin, but the curry tasted more Malaysian, which is interesting. This was the crowd favourite with perfectly fried chicken and generous serving of vegetables. Extra satisfaction mixing the egg yolk into the rice before devouring it.

The highlight of the night though was the sizzling Koji Rubbed Rib Eye. What’s Koji, you ask? Well, we Foochows should be familiar with this ingredient. It’s a type of yeast normally used to make the Foochow Red Wine. Turns out it can tenderise meat and add a touch of umaminess to the meat. Well, you learn something new every day! The beef is “marinated” for 3 days before a quick sear to perfect doneness (medium rare). The meat is quite tender indeed and very flavourful. I could definitely taste the Koji, which lends a unique depth to the beef. Complemented by a lovely mushroom sauce, it just can’t get better than that! RM80 for this, including coffee too.

And as if that wasn’t enough, I was given a choice to pick another cake as a prize for guessing the ingredient right for the mini sniffing test Nigel got us to do. Well, I do have a slight advantage as I actually have used Koji at home before. Anyway, the Lemon Meringue Pie here is fabulous! Light Meringue complementing the super tart lemon curd. If I were to nitpick, I would probably prefer a thinner and more buttery crust. Otherwise, it’s near perfect!

Thank you once again to Just Heavenly for having me there!
