Zender's Restaurant and Bar @ Publika

It took quite a while to actually get there due to its hidden location at the far corner of Block D5. Not to mention it is also at level G4 which is an unusual location for a restaurant at Publika. Before you reach Zender's, you will be passing by some printing cafe and Epson College. The question is why did we choose to dine at Zender's out of the many high profile restaurants offered by the reknown food paradise? Well, the reason was I had this Groupon voucher which offers a 2 person meal worth around RM150. Two mains can be selected from the given menu which includes grilled lamb shoulder, chicken sandwich, bolognese pasta, mediterranean rice and a few more which I could not remember. Soups, ice lemon tea  and dessert are complimentary.

The moment we reached the restaurant, the tables were mostly occupied mainly by young couples. A closer look told me that most of the customers here were having the same set menu offered by the Groupon voucher as well. While we sat waiting for our dishes to be served, more people came in flashing the printed coupons before getting seated. Clearly the reason behind the surge in number of people pouring in was mainly the attractive online deal.

 Ice lemon tea for beverage.

Hubby's grumpy face.

 Luxurious looking cushioned chairs at the outdoor dining area.

 Some sort of potato mushroom soup as appetizer.

 Hubby's choice. Chicken sandwich. Just a simple dish which barely filled up Hubby's tummy.

 My lamb shoulder chop with fries. The portion was okay for small eaters. Simple grilled lamb chop with acceptable quality for the price.

Lastly, brownies topped with ice cream. 

Overall, the quality of the food is just average. Not quite the fancy meal you would expect at first. To be honest, the 2 person set menu is definitely not worth as much as RM150 as written on the voucher. Advice: try the ala carte menu for fair judgement of their food quality. Zender's appears to be more like a drinking place for drinkers and shisha lovers to gather. Hubby and I went to Magenta after this for another meal and I shall blog about it in my next post! =D
