Located at the quiet neighbourhood of Section 17, The Gastro Project is one of the nicest decorated dining spots in Petaling Jaya with movie-themed approach to its layout design, a perfect place to bond with family, friends, and loved ones over good and elegant foods.
Separated into 2 floors, the upper floor is a multi-function space equipped with movie theatre system and a bar corner to cater for different types of event functions.
With checker flooring in classic black and white, and various movie posters hang on the wall to create that unique Hollywood atmosphere, the ground floor is the dining area where sumptuous western foods are being offered at very reasonable price.
Sticking to what it does best but with a little Asian twist, The Gastro Project promises patrons a culinary journey for the senses. Some of their signatures that must-not-be-missed including :
Mushroom Tart (RM15)
Served with caramalised mushrooms and onions on top the homemade yolk-like colored polenta, it had a slightly sweet flavour, and I like the contrast of texture, warm and soft inside while outside has the crunchy bite.
Mozzarella Salad (RM20)
Drizzled with balsamic dressing, this simply goodness salad has Buffalo mozzarella, basil and tomatoes as the main ingredients.
Japanese Style Salad (RM20)
Drizzled in a Japanese inspired sesame dressing, this bowl of salad was loaded with lots of healthy ingredients including avocado, pomegranate, mixed salad leaves and toasted pine nuts. Customers can add in tempura prawn too for the extra bite texture with just additional RM10.
Lamb Kebabs (RM20)
I enjoyed this minced lamb skewers that comes with a tasty and tangy pesto twist. Packed with enticing robust flavors, the meat was tender and juicy, one skewer definitely not enough to satisfy a lamb lover’s appetite.
The Moroccan (RM32)
I found this pizza quite interesting with a little Mediterranean twist, chef topped the pizza with ingredients like homemade minced lamb meatballs with mint, pine nuts and pomegranate, which you don’t find it quite often at normal pizza outlets.
The Indian (RM28)
Pizza in Indian style with a hint of spiciness from the toppings like chicken peratal, cucumber raita, sliced red chillies and paneer cheese. Surprisingly tasty if you are into Asian flavor.
Topped with generous amount of cheese and baked, this creamy ear-shaped pasta was cooked in cumin flavored sauce with sun-dried tomatoes, chicken sausage and homemade meatballs as the toppings.
Stuffed Chicken Mascarpone (RM45)
To further ravish your senses, try this oven-baked tender chicken breast that stuffed with breadcrumbs and mascarpone cheese. Served together with sautéed vegetables and mashed potatoes, chef drizzled some creamy thyme sauce on top the chicken to compliment the overall flavor.
Roasted Chicken (RM30)
A simple classical dish, nicely done roasted chicken with crispy skin and served with a side of tangy mash potato with sour cream and chives.
Cheese Burger (RM28)
Served with crispy potato wedges at side, I like its tender and juicy homemade beef patty together with other ingredients like cheese, pickles and salad, which made the whole eating burger experience a truly enjoyable one.
Quite interesting that The Gastro Project names their desserts as Luxurious, Classic, Traditional, Satisfying, Refreshing, Decadent, and Intriguing. A delight for the eyes, we ordered the Intriguing to wrap up our meal with.
Served in a classy martini glass, the dessert was layers of pumpkin and mango puree and topped with soft light whipped cream with slices of sweet sourish strawberries.
