Park 28 is a hidden gem. I’ve driven passed this particular busy road sooo many times, yet I had no idea Park 28 existed 😱😱. Opened since February this year, it is located within the Mutiara Damansara Recreational Park (next to IKEA Damansara). Entrance is by the roadside, easily accessible. This establishment exudes an air of fancyness with its country club feel, aesthetically pleasing too. If you are one of those who is an avid social media user, love taking photos and videos of anything visually pleasant, Park 28 will suit you just fine.
Parking: Plenty of parking available. As soon as you turn into the vicinity of Park 28, you’d be able to easily locate the designated area for parking, at no cost. Free of charge.
Park 28 has both indoor and outdoor seating. Just to experience both, I had lunch indoor and dessert outdoor. If you do visit on a day that isn’t raining, do sit outside. There is something appealing about being out in the greens and it is an awesome feeling being surrounded by it. Whether you visit on your own or with a large group of people, you most definitely will find a suitable spot here.
Set Lunch: Mutton Masala, RM 22.90 + Portuguese Baked Fish Fillet, RM 18.90
Since we dropped by within the 12 pm – 2 pm window, we opted to give their Set Lunch a try. Both dishes were certainly affordably priced and it included a bowl of soup as well as a glass of Iced Lemon Tea.
The soup and drinks arrived first, as it rightfully should. Soup of the day was the Campbell’s Mushroom Soup while Drink of the day was Iced Lemon Tea.
Less than 10 minutes later, our main dishes arrived. Food was good. The Mutton Masala was packed with plenty of flavors. I love the fact that it did not have the distinct, lingering aftertaste that usually accompanies this particular type of meat. The gravy was somewhat spicy and was awesome to eat with the rice.
The Portuguese Baked Fish Fillet was delicious too. It was cooked in Asam/Asam Pedas style. Boneless, tender fish with flavorful gravy and okra that was perfect to eat with the white rice that accompanied the fish.
Orange Chocolate Tart, RM10.90
Since we had a little more space in our tummies for dessert, we decided to share this tart. The Orange Chocolate Tart was decadent and appealingly bitter-ish. It had a good equilibrium between sweet and bitter, the kind you’d get from dark chocolate. I usually am not a fan of dark chocolate but the mix of chocolate and orange was rather appealing here. I liked it. It had a perfect balance of flavors.
The tart was a good end to my visit to Park 28. Would I head back here? I would. I regularly have meetings in the area and Park 28 would provide a good setting to have some of those get-together.
