MEZZE BISTRO & PUB - FINE & DELISH FOOD

Recently I was invited to a food and wine tasting in Mezze Bistro and Pub located in Jalan Kasah, Medan Damansara, Kuala Lumpur (behind Victoria Station). We were attended by Ms Sara Kwok, the Operations Manager who was friendly and attentive during the review.

The meaning of Mezze
A word which is Mediterranean in origin simply refers to the little plates of food that people in this region come together to share and enjoy great food, wine and atmosphere in a great yet relaxed environment.

Food Philosophy
Mezze is a modern bistro cum tapas bar known for its unpretentious food but big on flavour. Using imported fresh, best and quality ingredients to prepare food and cuisines from different parts of the world particularly countries surrounding the Mediterranean sea.

It serves home cooked cuisine (without MSG) with emphasis on quality and authenticity at reasonable price tag. Definitely value for money and you get what you pay for. Each serving/portion of food is sufficient for two pax.

Award
Ranked as one of the TOP 40 restaurants by TimeOut KL.

Mezze Bistro & Lounge
Mezze Bistro is located on the ground floor and has been in operation for the past one year while Mezze Lounge open its door on the first floor about three months ago.
