Lily Cenario Cafe, Petaling Jaya

I have posted on this cafe before and have not been there for a while. So, when we were looking for a place to eat near my housing area and one that would still be opened past 3 pm, Lily Cenario Cafe came to mind. Lily Cenario is actually more than just a cafe, it has an art gallery on the 1st Floor and has meditation sessions too there. On the ground floor, you have the cafe with its simple yet cosy decor. Check out the earlier review and the photo of the interior HERE.

Well as usual, I must order the yummy Crispy Salad Maki; a temptation I can't resist. It still taste as good as before. Love the yummy tempura bits, tuna, mayonnaise and lettuce with a garlicky taste to it.

For my main meal, I decided to try the day's special (changes everyday). Black Pepper Chicken Chop Rice with Otak-otak Spring Roll. It came with a dollop of their sambal which is thick and hot - I love the sambal too. For those who love spicy food, try eating the Maki with this sambal, it's even more delicious!

I like the chicken chop as it was thinner than usual, hence more flavour to the bite. The two small otak-otak rolls were tasty too. However, it would have been better if it was slightly bigger as it was a tad small to have any oomph when I bit into it.

We then had the Golden Pau for dessert. The 3 deep fried wanton was lovely to look at and was yummy too. With a thick sweet corn custard like filling, we enjoyed the unique mixture of the slightly salty wanton skin and the sweetness of the filling.

Lily Cenario Cafe is opened from 11 am till 10 pm (closed on Mondays) and is located at No. 1, Jalan 19/29, 46300 Petaling Jaya (Tel : 03-7960 3148). It's the corner shop lot facing the open car park area; behind New Paris Restaurant.

The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.

Dear WMW,

The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it?

I guess it is OK to yield to these tiny pouches of healthy food.

Love the crispy salad maki, with "yummy tempura bits, tuna, mayonnaise and lettuce with a garlicky taste to it".
These makis look like blossoming green flowers.

ilene said...

Oh dear, I just had my lunch (noodle soup) and now I see this and I'm drooling! Geez...WMW...it's very sinful to publish such nice pics of FOOD! Wah, each time you post the food outlet, each time I go & try it out, not only will I be broke, I would also need to change my wardrobe!

jason : Flame torch? Wah...got meh?

meiyen : Was that me when I first reviewed it in August last year? Ha ha...do try. Have not tried all the food but like the ambiance.

tankiasu : I think it was about RM15++ (inclusive of a nice large hot sen cha - green tea).

wonda : I think this is something Lily Cenario invented...but you can try to do one over there in Japan yourself.
