This was an accidental discovery. I initially was headed to Bean Brothers PJ for a cuppa coffee while in the area but ended up taking a drive around the block. I was curious to see if there were new additions into the area. If you are familiar with this side of Kota Damansara, you’d know that it consist mostly of SMEs, factories, car service shop and etc … and then, there is Bean Brothers, right there in a place where you’d not think of a cafe existing. I was hoping to find another cafe/restaurant in the area and I did – Novae: Future Tavern.
Novae has been opened for two years now and I knew nothing of its existence. It’s about time I give it a visit. This restaurant & bar has a unique, futuristic theme. Depending on where you are seated, it does give you an illusion of being in a spaceship.
Parking: It was easy to find a parking spot here. Plenty available just outside the restaurant. Free of charge.
Yup, it sure is futuristic, all right. Apparently it looks even nicer at night, especially so with the lightings and such but I decided to pay it a visit for lunch instead. It was quiet and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves.
** Price is on the higher side here. An average of RM 30++ per person.
Chicken Fajitas, RM37 + Yakitori Pasta, RM35
The food presentation was 👌👌👌. They clearly put some effort into making it look nice. Portion size was pretty big too … I suppose that made up for the RM 30++ for a dish cost 🤔🤔
The Yakitori Pasta was surprisingly good, unique in its taste. I loveeeee Bonito flakes and with this dish, there was plenty of it. After giving it a good mix, those fish flakes sure did provide an extra ummphh to the dish overall. There was 3 sticks of chicken swekers. It tasted good, I enjoyed eating it on its own. As for the pasta, angel hair was used, which I am a fan of.
The Chicken Fajitas included 4 pieces of wraps with a side of Onion rings. The chicken wrap was tasty. It consisted of a good portion of flavorful chicken filling, with cheese, mayo and some greens. I liked that from the start to the end, there was plenty of filling to munch on, unlike some eateries that only fill up the mid section, leaving the ends of the wrap empty.
Overall, it was a pretty pleasant experience. I had the whole place to myself, food was good albeit a little pricey. Would I head back here? Most likely not anytime soon. I last visited this specific side of Kota Damansara 4 years ago and I most likely would not be returning again for another couple of years. Nothing against the restaurant, it simply is not an area I regularly hang out at.
