Tucked away in a hidden corner of the bustling Chulia Street, Mystery Village Cafe & Pub is accessible from a hidden, curious passageway opposite to the junction of Cintra Street and Chulia Street. Push the door open and you will find yourself in a mysterious but lovely garden filled with an array of local delights. Traipse up the stairs and you will plenty of seats under the marquee... with live song performance on weekends. On the food offering, the place runs like an upscale food court... where visitors may order the food from specific vendor and they will then send the food to your table. Not much of choices for now (only Pi Pa Duck, Grilled Seafood, Western Food, Satay and of course alcohols) but more variety will soon be added. Prices are higher than usual but you pay for the chic al-fresco atmosphere.
Pi Pa Duck (Rm 25 half bird)
Stir Fried Squid (Rm 18)
Grilled Stingray (Rm 8 per 100 grams/ Rm 28 for this portion)
Ice Kacang (Rm 6)
Mystery Village Cafe & Pub is suitable for hangout after meal rather than a place for family dining... as the choices are pretty limited. We had Pi Pa Duck, pretty standard-average but if we must nitpick, we would prefer the meat to be juicier (the one we had was a little too dry to our liking). The Stir Fried Squid on the other hand, was a pleasant surprise. The flavors were bold and amazing, the Squid was expertly cooked to the right doneness, it was a dish worth eating again. Grilled Stingray was alright, it did not really hit us but we'll give it an "okay-average". If you want to make it a meal, you may top it off with White Rice.
