After concluding a work meet, we headed to Watermark for lunch. This 4 month old cafe occupies a corner lot, located within a row of shops. It certainly can pass of as a neighborhood cafe because it is surrounded by houses and is literally one of the few eateries in this stretch. With its new and modern interior, it does stand out comparatively from the other businesses because the others were more ol’ school and dated, includes a car service shop and similar SMEs.
Watermark has both indoor and outdoor seating. For the indoor seating, there is the semi air conditioned area as well as the fully air conditioned area. The semi air conditioned area, which was where we were seated, was attached to the outdoor area. So, not only do you get air conditioning, you’d also get the natural air from outside flowing in. The fully air conditioned area, is an extended area on the inner part of the cafe, a level below from where we were.
Parking was easy and free. Many parking spots available directly in front the row of shops. If that is fully occupied, people tend to park at any nook and corner here.
Pineapple Milk, RM 11
Apparently their specialty is their pineapple jam which is specially made in house. So, any of the pineapple drinks in their Refresher Series, Fizzy Series and Milk Series was highly recommended. I was curious and so, I decided on Pineapple Milk. I did not know what to expect but what I was served was certainly likeable. It included milk with small bits of sweet-ish pineapple. I enjoyed it. The combination was unique and the addition of pineapple to milk was definitely a thumbs up.
Scrambled Eggs, RM 14
This could be a meal by itself. The portion served certainly caught us by surprise because it was generous. Served with warm, buttery English muffin, the scrambled eggs were soft, dense, gooey and milky. With chewy sauteed mushrooms and tomatoes, the combination of items made up one delicious dish. I would not mind giving it another go again. I liked my scrambled eggs wet, slightly undercooked and I requested that the eggs be cooked that way. I appreciate their attempt to make the dish as close as possible to what I requested for. On top of that, they did drop by to double check if they delivered what I requested for, which they did. Awesome customer service, for sure.
Chicken Fillet Pesto Spaghetti, RM 17
Again, worth another mention – the portion size here is large and generous. Lots of pasta and pieces of chicken fillet with some cream cheese. If you like your pasta creamy and a little wet, this would certainly satisfy you. The taste of pesto was evident and when eaten with the chicken, the spaghetti was tasty.
Chicken Whole Leg Confit, RM 18
This dish turned out surprisingly good too. The meat was tender and juicy, it broke apart easily when cut into. The white cream was apparently pepper sauce which I was initially apprehensive about. I am not often a fan of pepper sauce as it tends to overwhelm the whole dish with peppery taste but this one here was not overpowering at all. If I was not aware that it was pepper sauce, I would have assumed that it was just a creamy sauce. I suppose the sauce combination worked well with the chicken, that I simply forgot about the pepper. The meat was served on a bed of potato ratatouille, which tasted good and was an awesome addition to the dish overall.
Overall, I had a good experience here. Customer service was good, food was better than expected. Affordably priced too. Would I head back here? Yes, I would like to. If I find myself on this side of town, I’ll keep Watermark in mind.
