A recent new restaurant open at Bandar Mahkota Cheras. Had my first try, although they already have many outlets around such as Setia Walk, Sri Petaling, and Putrajaya.
“Padi” means rice in Malay which gave me the first thought that they should be selling local cuisine. To my surprise they even sell pasta, western, cakes and cookies.
It is a corner shop along with Pappa Rich and next to Nando’s but it’s easily noticeable. It has ample parking space in the front and side of the shop as this area is rather new.
A 2 level shop renovated to a comfortable ambience for gatherings, family meals or just chill our for some coffee and desserts. It is was a busy Saturday on the day we went but managed to get a table.
What most attracted me was the various cakes presented at the chiller near the entrance. Some of the choices are Vanilla cheesecake, Oreo cheesecake, Macadamia cheesecake, Choc moist and many more. They sell in mini square or round cake, slices from a whole and whole cake.
Now, to the food…
Cheese baked vegetarian pasta (RM13.90)
Spaghetti cooked with mushroom, long bean, carrot, cauliflower topped with cheese. I love the tomato based sauce that is quite concentrated but salty. It tasted little like the Prego brand traditional Italian tomato sauce. I’m not sure though how Padi made or what brand they use for the sauce.
Caesar Salad (RM9.50)
A typical caesar salad of lettuce, egg, croutons, cheese flakes with salad dressing. Fresh and crunchy lettuce and croutons but don’t leave the croutons too long, it goes soft.
Macadamia Cheese (RM11.50)
A original cheesecake topped with macadamia nuts and glaze. The combination is delicious. If you happily finish the macadamia first, you will feel that the cheesecake is just normal and plain. The cheesecake is not too sweet for my liking.
They currently have this deal of getting a 50% discount on Cappuccino, Cafe Latte or Green Tea Latter with a purchase of every cheesecake.
