The cafe being called “Myth” really doesn’t have anything mystical about it, but it echoes with M Boutique Hotel’s adventurous expedition theme. If M Boutique Hotel were a luxury base camp for a safari expedition, then the Myth cafe would be the home of a wealthy safarian that’s sponsoring the expedition.
Rustic with colors, the overall set up is grand with magnificent chairs, chandeliers entangled in wood art; at the same time it’s homey with the use of thick cushions and washed out grey linens as table mats.
For starters, I ordered smoked chicken wing (RM 16) which I thought was something different from the usual BBQ or deep fried chicken wings.
Without the oiliness of deep friend wings or the burnt flavor of barbecued wings, the smoked wings had a wonderful thorough smokey flavor inside out with the beautifully browned chicken skin enveloping the pink, tender flesh.
I picked the Spaghetti Siciliana (RM 30) as I don’t see it often too on cafe menus. It’s supposed to come with anchovies, broccoli and pine nuts, but the anchovies were missing in action.
It was a decent dish similar to a soupy and less spicy version of an aglio olio. However, without the addition of anchovies which would have added an unique flavor, the dish was plain without much character.
I really liked the smoked chicken wings and obviously not so much on the Spaghetti Siciliana. The food is pricey (main courses range from RM 20 – 60, quick bites range from RM 8 – 28) but if price is not a concern, the Myth Cafe is an atmospheric place to hang out with its fantastic setting.
