Kalamata Café KL
Opening just three days before the most recent MCO, Kalamata Café has been offering its menu via delivery and takeaway. With the latest announcements, they’ve added dine-in to the possibilities. Their Mediterranean-style menu is a welcome addition to the KL food scene, serving a mix of Greek and Egyptian cuisine.
My love for veg and light pickings would see me happy to start and finish in the mezze section of Kalamata Café’s menu. Hummus (RM 15.90) is a smooth, creamy version here, and the Eggplant Dip (RM 12) is stringy with a mild tang. Warm Pita Bread (RM 3.80, 2 pieces) is perfect for scraping out every corner of those takeaway containers.
Soups & Salads
I think the Lentil Soup (RM 12) could well be a light meal on its own. The brown legumes are filling, and the addition of pita bread strips make the soup even more so.
Grabbing a Salad (RM 15.90) is highly recommended if you plan to continue ordering some mains. The bright freshness of cucumber, lettuce, tomato and white cheese will be a welcome complement to the richer recipes to come.
For something decadent, Kalamata Café’s Moussaka Clay Pot (RM 36) is sure to satisfy. Eggplant, potato, tomato and bell peppers are layered with a tasty tomato and beef sauce with an abundance of thick, creamy béchamel. Finished off in the oven, it sports a golden crown.
The Smoked Half Chicken with Rice (RM 36) is an excellent choice if you love smoky flavours. Smoked for two hours, the flesh is rich with aroma, succulent, and a perfect match for the lovely leggy long rice grains. A house-made garlic sauce adds a little creamy and tangy bite to the recipe.
True to the tradition of Mediterranean cuisine, the Kalamata Café offers regular specials based on the best finds from the morning market. We were in luck with Tiger Prawns (RM 68) – plump, meaty specimens, lightly seasoned and grilled until tender but still retaining firmness to the bite.
Kalamata Café Drinks Menu
A couple of house-made drinks, Egyptian Hibiscus Ice (RM 7) and Tamarind Juice (RM 7), are easy partners for this style of eating. Both are light on the sugar (much appreciated) and genuinely refreshing.
