The World is Flat at The Bee, Publika, KL: Pizza, Sandwiches and Light Bites

The Bee at Publika is a well-known venue for music, comedy shows and events. Last year, The World is Flat took over the kitchen at The Bee, churning out innovative pizzas, sandwiches and other brunch items. This is the first overseas venture by the people who oversee a myriad of food concepts in Singapore, including Standing Sushi Bar, Tanuki Raw, Sumo Bar Happy and more.

The Bee offers both an al fresco dining area as well an indoor air-conditioned section. I don't usually do al fresco dining but the ambiance here was too nice to resist, with its vibrant mural and lush green plants. Great vibes and so Instagram-worthy too!

The food menu is available all day, from 11am to 11pm and feature nine types of thin crust and deep dish pizzas, pasta, sandwiches and snacks, with great punny names such as "Nacho Average Chips" and "Spam Wham!"

Snack away while you catch up with friends - we highly recommend the Truffle Fries (RM19) or awesome Curry Popcorn Shrimp (RM29); both great paired with a cold beer.

Instead of regular potato fries, the Truffle Fries are made using sweet potato, fried and then tossed in white truffle oil. Don't forget to eat it dipped in the truffle aioli... so yum!

Undoubtedly our favorite here, the fried lightly battered popcorn shrimp served with a beer cheese dip went down a treat. Crisp and absolutely addictive, we especially loved the curry spices coating the shrimp.

For those who love salted egg (who doesn't?), you'd be happy to find that the menu features quite a few salted egg items. We selected the Salted Egg Fried Chicken sandwich (RM30); one loaded sandwich with crispy herb fried chicken, honey butter, burnt onions, mozzarella and cheddar. We would have loved more of the salted duck egg sauce to make the taste more prevalent though overall, we enjoyed this - messy but sinfully good!

There is also a small brunch menu available (think eggs benedict, croque madame, beef hash, at RM27 each). We had the Pancakes, which comes with 3 large-ish, fluffy pancakes, served with sliced bananas, whipped butter and scrambled eggs. BabySumoKids enjoyed the pancakes, drizzled with lots of syrup and smeared with lots of butter.

Since The World is Flat is essentially known for their pizzas, we ordered both the Black Gold (RM25 for personal) and Fat Samurai (RM30 for personal). They also do a 12" version of all the pizzas. My vote goes to the Black Gold, a thin, charcoal crust pizza topped with crispy squid, seasoned fried prawns, burnt onion, portobello mushroom, salted egg sauce and three types of cheese. The pizza crust was light and the whole combination worked for me. I didnt quite enjoy the Fat Samurai as I found the flavours to be overbusy, but I think those who like okonomiyaki  may appreciate this.
