Nolita Caffetteria @ Viva Home Mall
Mention Nolita to the uninformed, and more often than not, they would relate it to Lolita, the sexy and seductive counterpart. But no, Nolita in fact refers to a neighbourhood in Manhattan, New York, which is short for North of Little Italy. And now, it also happens to be the name of a relatively new restaurant located in the spanking new Viva Home Mall, with their forte being the frozen yogurt. We dropped by for a visit one weekend, and found that Nolita offered more than just frozen yogurt.

Grilled Chicken Salad (RM9)We started our dinner with the Grilled Chicken Salad, which came in a sizable bowl filled with lettuce, carrot and most importantly, slices of nicely grilled chicken! The dressing was minimal but I enjoyed eating my salad just bare like that, especially with the addition of some hot meat.
Caesar Salad + Chicken (RM10)For something more saucy (pun not intended), the Caesar’s Salad could be a better choice, since it came drenched with what I guessed as mayonnaise and honey mustard sauce. The salad was generously sprinkled with croutons and a whole boiled egg, on a bed of Romaine lettuce. As much as I loved the boiled egg and crouton, I thought the salad was a bit too wet for my liking. But that’s just me.
Turkey Ham Sandwich (RM9.90)For mains, we had a sandwich and a pasta to share. The Turkey Ham Sandwich was served in brown bread which I loved, layered with lettuce, tomatoes and onions with mayonnaise. Thankfully, nothing overloaded here so I enjoyed the simple delicacy very much. Oh, did I mention this came with chips too? Perfect for catching up with friends over a cup of cappuccino.
Creamy Mushroom Pasta (RM12)We picked the Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti as our pasta choice and it came topped with plenty of shredded ham and cheese on top! The cream sauce was thick and rich but would have worked better if it was tossed with the pasta before being served. You see, halfway through our pasta, we found that there was no more creamy sauce for the remaining spaghetti at the bottom, rendering the dish to be dry and bland. Or perhaps, customers should be reminded to toss their pasta before eating. Bon appetit!
PavlovaFor dessert, we were treated to one of their latest offerings from the menu, a Pavlova! I heard that this was a hot-selling item and often went out of stock. Lucky for us, we managed to get a piece to try out. To be honest, I’m not really a huge fan of anything too sweet or sour, but thankfully, the pavlova was the perfect combination of the two! The crust was thin, crumbly and melted in my mouth, while the insides remain light and not overly sweet. Well done!
Frozen Yogurt Large + 2 toppings (RM12)I found the froyo here to be denser and thicker in texture, with a creamy and smooth finish. It was also not very sour, which worked well with me, but Saucer preferred it to be more sour. I certainly enjoyed my froyo and best of all, it’s like ice-cream without excessive sugar or calories.
