Nested at Damansara Height, we stumbled upon a restaurant by the name of Maliqa, a title of Arabic origin that is used in Persia for a queen consort. The restaurant well decorated with mirrors and the beautiful lovely interior designs, carpets as well as their lovely lights and more.

It has the feeling of going to a Mediterranean though . MALIQA had only just opened its doors on the 30th August 2012 catering to a selection of Mediterranean food, ranging from Italian, Greek, Spanish and Turkish. It is like having everything in one roof though.

We started with the Pirincli Yoghurt & Carbasi. The flavorful and addictive soup I ever had. The soup is different from the usual soup we had always in other restaurants. The thick yoghurt based soup with minced chicken, and bits of long grain rice. It brings the light soury taste and yet appetizing blend.

The Portobello mushroom is being sliced and it then being deep fried till perfection. Crunchy at the outside and bringing juiciness in the inside is what you can enjoy for the Funghi Fritta in Maliqa. When I have my first bite of the mushroom, it is really superb and I am completely to fall in love with it. The crunchy and yet well fried item is indeed superb and you may choose to dip them with their home made tartar sauce.
