Come For Food, Eat For Good
Just opened its business recently in March 2014 at the new NEXUS Bangsar South City, Mango Chili restaurant that serves casual Thai cuisine has an interesting yet meaningful business model.
“Everytime you eat a full meal here, one meal will be given to an underprivileged child. We intend to support many communities of children and our first is the 900+ kids from Dignity for Children Foundation based in Sentul. we do not charge you any extra amount for giving away this meal because our business model is built upon creating a sustainable business and shared value with these underprivileged children”, explained patiently by the chief happiness officer, Mr Ronald Khoo.
Mango Chili’s recipes are inspired by the Mango Tree family from Bangkok as they are the master franchisee of COCA/Mango Tree that oversees more than 76 COCA & Mango Tree located in 16 countries around the world.
Brightly lit with warm yellow light, customers can enjoy their dining experience here in a cozy and relaxing ambience. Ronald puts in some elements to the restaurant’s interior layout to resemble the Thai street scene, such as the pink color zinc panels and imported Tuk Tuk that placed just in front of the Mango Chili’s front door.
Green Mango Salad (RM9.90)
Not much appetite? I like this version of Green Mango Salad, cos it was not too sourish for my liking. Have it together with the peanuts, I quite enjoyed the crunchiness of every bite that comes with a hint of spiciness.
Shrimp Cake (RM13.90)
Deep fried till golden brown crisp outside, I like the minced prawn filling as it was not dry and hard. Dipped with the Thai chili sauce that served at side, this was a pretty decent appetizer to start our wonderful meal with.
Tom Yum Wings (RM9.90)
Deep fried till golden brown crisp, I love the outer layer’s crunchiness yet the meat still stay tender and juicy. Such a finger-licking enjoyable appetizer with very mild of tom yum flavor so that customers can still taste the chicken’s natural sweetness.
Pad Thai Prawn (RM19.90)
My must-have of Thai food, the Pad Thai, stir fried noodles in tamarind sauce with prawns, bean sprout, sliced onion, peanuts, and few others ingredients.
Fried Rice with Chicken (RM14.90)
Mango Chili offers 3 different types of fried rice here for customers to choose from, namely the vegetable fried rice, green curry fried rice, and tom yum fried rice. Each dish served with chicken skewers, marinated fried beef, or grilled chicken according to your preference. The portion is in single serving, just nice for those busy and rush lunch crowd.
Tom Yam Seafood (RM17.90)
Loaded with different type of seafood, this irresistible spicy and sour tom yam with milk was all set to tempt and whet one’s appetite with the flavorsome soup.
Stir Fried Kai Lan (RM15.90)
A simple yet favorable vegetable dish, chef stir fried the crunchy kai lan with marinated beef in fragrant oyster sauce.
Deep Fried Fish (RM39.90)
Chef deep fried the fish till golden brown crisp outside while the meat still remains its juiciness. Served with 3 different types of sauces separately at side, namely the sweet sour chili, oyster sesame sauce, and spicy seafood sauce, I myself like the oyster sesame sauce for its fragrance.
Red Ruby Water Chestnut (RM6.50)
I often order this dessert if am dining at a Thai restaurant because I like the crunchy water chestnut. Here at Mango Chilli, they served it with a scope of ice cream to make the texture creamier.
Mango Sticky Rice (RM8.50)
