FITTIE SENSE



Healthy start to the week


20 October 2019

It had to be a magical Sunday because my friends and I found convenient road parking spots in space challenged Bangsar and we came in four cars. OK, we didn’t park next to each other but still… Or perhaps it was because we had arranged to meet at 10.30am and folks usually prefer to sleep in on Sundays.
Anyway, we counted our blessings as we trotted up the stairs to Fittie Sense, a restaurant with the tagline “Fussy About Food” and I was having a good feel about this. 


The hot kitchen only caters to a la carte orders after 11am but in the meantime, there’s the All-Day Breakfast Menu, with two pages filled with colourful pictures of dishes.
These include hearty stuff like the All-Day Breakfast (RM34) with chicken/lamb kofte, 2 kampung eggs, tomato, roasted pumpkin, mushroom and wheat-free toast, Dragon Bowl (RM18) comprising coconut chia seed pudding with dragonfruit kefir smoothie and house granola and if you’re really not hungry, just peckish, have an Energy Ball (RM5), little loaded bombs made with nuts and seed, banana, dates, coconut oil and a touch of honey.
If nothing tickles your fancy, customers can also craft their own breakfast by ticking off a list of ingredients and the chefs will put it all together. 
Craft your own healthy plate
I am wondering if I should have Lamb Pita (RM19) with Lebanese slaw and house garlic aioli or the Signature Zoodles Aglio Olio (RM18) a vegan offering of Zucchini Noodles, Tomato, Mushroom, Chilli, Capers & Lemon.
As we’re taking so long to make up our minds, I snuck a peek at my watch and notice it’s already 11am, so we ask for the a la carte menu too. 
Keto Salmon Omelette
The two kids who tagged along with their mums share an interest in Keto Salmon Omelette (RM34) cooked with 4 kampung eggs topped with Norwegian salmon, broccoli and asparagus. The salmon is cut in big chunky 4 cm squares and there’s plenty of it too, interlaced with sprigs of asparagus and broccoli florets and a sprinkle of coriander on top.
FS Bolognese Pasta
Someone orders FS Bolognese Pasta (RM24), with semolina pasta topped with lean beef topside Bolognese sauce and grated cheese. 
Grilled Citrus Seabass with lots of greens, almonds and lemon-orange dressing
I finally decide on Grilled Citrus Seabass (RM46) with broccoli, kailan, almonds & a tangy lemon-orange dressing. The locally-caught fish is panseared with a bit of ginger and fennel and topped with roasted almond flakes that add a nutty crunch to the soft moist fish. The broccoli and kalian are lightly steamed to maintain a satisfying crunch and goes well with dressing of lemon juice and EVOO. 

Cajun Chicken Chop with Quinoa Pilaf
Cajun Chicken Chop with Quinoa Pilaf (RM28) is a colourful plate of grilled chicken thigh on a bed of millet-quinoa pilaf surrounded by chopped lettuce and cherry tomato.  Avocado mash and coriander on top completes the pretty picture. This is a satisfying dish to fill hungry tummies. 

Lamb Kofte & Baba Ganoush
Lamb Kofte & Baba Ganoush (RM30) is an aromatic, spicy ground lamb kebab with meat from grassfed lamb. Served with sidekicks of marinaded beetroot, cauliflower tabbouleh and mashed, roasted eggplant.
Actually, the menu is quite extensive and pictures of each dish prove helpful. Opened in April 2017, Fittie Sense also caters to vegetarians and those on special diets including celiac, high protein Paleo or low-carb-high-fat Keto. There are regular and vegetarian Daily Specials menu and on Sunday, there’s a Stevia Baked Cheesecake with Tahitian Vanilla (RM19) for Keto diets.
Orange, Polenta & Poppy Seed Cake and Carrot Cake

For dessert we share a slice of Orange, Polenta & Poppy Seed Cake (RM16) made with Almond Meal, Polenta, Molasses, Olive Oil, Eggs and Poppy Seed, and Carrot Cake (RM16), baked with beetroot, orange, almond meal, coconut flour, unrefined brown sugar, eggs, cinnamon and ginger.
