Mei By Fat Spoon @ Sri Hartamas KL - Love Japanese? Try This!


A no-fuss Japanese fusion eatery. Was the meal penny-worthy however? 

Mei by Fat Spoon

Mei by Fat Spoon follows behind the success story of Fat Spoon Cafe Damansara. The menu here diverged however. Mei serves Japanese inspired fusion cuisine, whereas Fat Spoon offers dishes that are slightly more contemporary-Malaysian.

That Sunday afternoon, I stepped into a bright and bustling restaurant, which felt inviting and well - great for photography I thought. Throughout the four hours I was there, patrons came and went, then came and went again. Pardon the table hogging, but I was genuinely enjoying my company, and we kept the tab rolling!


Wait! Make sure you watch my Mei by Fat Spoon Video!

Mei by Fat Spoon | Hello Everyone!


Occupying a corner shop lot, Mei spots a glass exterior and an almost invincible store sign - for real. The restaurant is located along the same stretch as Buns Burger Bar HartamasAoyama The Green Room Hartamas and next block from Naughty Babe Dirty Duck HartamasMore Sri Hartamas reviews here.

I wasn't exactly geared up on my side parking skills that day and was forced to park at the back alley. You know the Hartamas parking drill - it surely takes some skill to manoeuvre.


Mei by Fat Spoon Menu and Prices.


Green Juice (Rm10). Lychee Cooler (Rm8).


Smoked Duck and Watermelon Salad. Rm18.


Watermelon and smoked duck drizzled with chia seed dressing - which sadly, didn't quite work for me. I thought flavors could've been better and it was overcrowded with mint leaves - something which I don't particularly fancy. 

Summer Bara Chirashi Bowl. Rm38.


What a colorfully attractive bowl of sashimi! For the pleasure of sashimi lovers, do order! You'd get the freshest of ingredients all in a bowl. I don't think I'll ever get bored of looking at it. This is also the most expensive dish here. 

 Mentaiko Spaghettini. Rm28.


What I really liked about this - perfectly torched scallops and the exquisite mentaiko sauce. A tweak - the richness of the sauce camouflaged most, or all of the natural sweetness of the seaweed. More seaweed please!

Cempedak Spring Roll with Vanilla Ice Cream. Rm15.


One thing both Mei and Fat Spoon have in common - this dessert. Like what I savored before, the skin was crisp and the cempedak fillings, fragrant and addictive. Served with a scoop of Fat Baby vanilla ice cream. 

Overall Rating: 7.5/10. I'm not surprised. It doesn't take much to know that the sisters behind the Fat Spoon legacy have got an eye for mixing and matching - contemporary dishes if you may. They have got their own recipe book published, available in store. I had a delicious meal here today. The dishes we ordered were vibrant and interesting, yet not overly confusing, although I weren't that keen on the salad. That said, our meal didn't come cheap, averaging at Rm60 per person. Whether its penny-worthy or not, perhaps not for me, but I'll let you be the judge.

Mei is located at:
Address: 22G, Jalan 27/70A, Desa Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Phone: 03-2300 3327
Opening Hours: 10am - 10pm Daily. Closed Monday.

Again, the restaurant occupies a corner shop lot, spotting a glass exterior and an almost invincible store sign - for real. The same stretch as Buns Burger Bar HartamasAoyama The Green Room Hartamas and next block from Naughty Babe Dirty Duck Hartamas.
