The Grand Launch of El Meson, Telawi Bangsar

El Meson at Telawi, Bangsar has been open for sometime. Yesterday was the GRAND launch, done in GRAND style.

There were so many delicious canapes going around that night that me & unkaleong was stuffed! Deep fried peppered calamari rings in cute little paper cones, battered prawns with the most divine mushroom cream sauce, Albondigas (meatballs) in amazing, absolutely amazing tomato sauce, intensely flavourful paella & crunchy prawns in olive oil are just some of the marvellous canapes going around.
Lip smacking good food, downed with many many glasses of white & red Sangria, free flow champagne, red & white wine.  Me – *burps *, Unkaleong – *hic* !! :wacko:

As stuffed as we were, we gleefully waited in anticipation when the platter of cold cuts started going around. The plan was to take a few slices of each type to staple. But Mr Ek wouldn’t hear of such thing, and plonked down a WHOLE plate right in front of us. Ah well..it would be insulting to say “No” right??  😉
Then UnkaLeong proceeded to wipe the whole plate clean. Chis..greedy fella.

Then wooden boards of half-sized suckling pig went around. At that point I was wondering..if Mr Ek is hiring.. hhmmm…

We were spoiled with desserts after, and the chocolate macarons were heavenly, even for someone who hates macarons (me)!

CONGRATULATIONS (Dee Jai Duay Na Kha!!)  to Mr Ek and Mei Li, for the launch of El Meson! And our heartfelt gratitude for the invite! 😉

For more on El Meson’s food:
Read this post – I tried almost 10 different dishes!
Or this one – the PORK BURGER is really good, do remember to ask for medium for a moist and juicy patty! There are other lunch items covered here too.

Note: Mr Ek is no newbie in the F & B scene, he happens to be the owner of The Social, El Meson & Planter Jim’s – (Telawi, Bangsar) & The YogiTree – Gardens, Mid Valley.

I got more pictures to share of the set lunches I had here at El Meson. But that would be another post 😉

Oh, anyone up for the breakfast fry-up? :yes:
