Fresco, Jaya Grocer + Bonjour Garden @ Intermark Mall, KL

During the weekend, Hubby and I like going to The Intermark for a spot of grocery shopping as well as food. Recently, we tried Fresco, Jaya Grocer's 'grocerant' (grocer + restaurant) which serves Italian-style cuisine. The idea is for customers to choose from a selection of meat and seafood from the supermarket area (with a sticker "Cooks for you"), pay for it and then bring it to Fresco and they will cook it for you. There is no additional fee for cooking it, though you have to order a side dish for every item you want cooked for you.

No-frills affordable steak

On our first visit here, I visited the meat department and got myself a Australian rib eye steak (RM7.99 per 100g) and I paid approx RM19 for 240g of steak. I consider that a pretty reasonable price to pay, especially since they cooked the steak to my liking, a lovely medium rare. The steaks have got that nice char which we like too. For side dish, we have tried the garlic mash  potatoes (RM6.80)and steak fries (RM6.80). I'd say skip the mash and go for the fries, a really nice and huge portion, which is lightly seasoned with some cajun spice. On another visit, Hubby had the Angus striploin which slightly more expensive at RM14.90 per 100g, but it was really tasty and tender.

We have also tried the Wagyu supreme burger (RM38) which comes with a thick beef patty, melted cheese and sliced Portobello mushrooms. A little sloppy to eat, but this was quite delicious with a nice combination of flavours.

Jaya Grocer also stocks the world-renowned Bordier butter (in limited numbers).... trust me, it's oh-so-good! Named by many chefs (including Guy Savoy) as the best butter from France.

We also like stopping by at Bonjour Garden (adjacent to Jaya Grocer) for some desserts. We have tried their Cinnamon Raisin Twist bun (RM3), Choco Raspberry (RM6.60), Chocolate Galaxy (RM6.60) and Strawberry Shortcake (RM7). I especially like the Chocolate Galaxy - rich, smooth chocolate, as well as the soft, fluffy Strawberry Shortcake.








Parking: Free on Sundays, or spend RM30 and above at Jaya Grocer and get 3 hrs free parking.
