Thirdwave, at Nexus Bangsar South has been one of my must-visit spots on my #CafeHoppingMalaysia exploration for some time now, after hearing and seeing so many foodies visiting there in recent times. I was there last week with fellow foodies and friends to check out their latest lunch menu. Check out what they have to offer below.
|Thirdwave Cafe @ Nexus Bangsar South|
Unit 1-11, Level 1, Nexus,
59200 Kuala Lumpur
Upon reaching Thirdwave, my first impression of the cafe is that it really takes on a minimalistic design, both the shop front as well as the interior. Inside, there were ample space, with a mini coffee bar at the corner for coffee brewing and all.

When we were there the other day, the good folks from Thirdwave served us their latest on-going lunch menu set (RM25++) which includes 1 Main of you choice, 1 homemade soup of the day, and 1 drink of your choice. Don't forget to check out their handmade chocolates and sweet treats too.
|Moroccan Lamb Burger with Mint Mustard Vinaigrette|
The Moroccan Lamb Burger served with mint mustard vinaigrette, with really nice potato wedges on the side. The lamb patty was thick and moist, well seasoned and cooked to perfection. There's an option to add on RM 2 for that extra cheesy cheddar cheese. A special mention has to be of their delicious potato wedges, awesomely crispy on the outside, yet with lots of potato below the crisp batter.
|Boneless Thirdwave Fried Chicken|
Always a fan of fried chicken, here at Thirdwave, they serve their Boneless Thirdwave Fried Chicken which was crunchy, crisp, well seasoned, tender and juicy inside. Served with their special sweet, spicy and tangy sauce, it does really go well with the chicken. Then there's the really good potato wedges on the side.
|Funghi Aglio Olio Spaghetti|
Up next were the pasta dishes, starting with the Funghi Aglio Olio Spaghetti. This dish was served with a generous amount of mushrooms, capsicum, black pepper and cheese. I would have preferred if it had more flavour to it, as the taste was pretty bland. Nevertheless the cheese did wonders to the dish.
|Al Ragu Spaghetti|
Meat lovers will love the Al Ragu Spaghetti, with savoury meaty chili sauce slow cooked to perfection before being mixed with the spaghetti. The flavours were pretty rich and well seasoned, with generous amounts of meaty delight. Again, the cheese made a difference, adding that savoury cheesy flavour to an already addictive dish.
|Garlicky Chicken Fusilli (Spinach sauce & fragrant chicken mince)|
The Garlicky Chicken Fusilli tasted way better than how I perceived it will taste. The looks itself, vibrant green did deter me initially, but the moment I put it into the mouth, I like it almost immediately. The green spinach sauce and fusilli, went really well with that extra fragrant minced chicken meat. Lots of flavour, I actually had more than my fair share of this dish.
|Hot Pressed BLT Ciabatta|
A sandwich dish, the Hot Pressed BLT Ciabatta was served with fresh vege on sliced cheese and ham with mayonnaise and finish on ciabatta bread. It did remind me of a Subway sandwich, but a lot healthier with the alfalfa sprouts, minimal sauce, and lots of greens.
|Waffle Ice Cream with Strawberries, Blueberries and Banana|
We ended our meal with Thirdwave's Waffle Ice Cream with Strawberries, Blueberries and Banana. Subtly osmanthus-infused, crispy on the edges, crowned with NZ's Kapiti vanilla ice cream, 'mysterious flowers,' berries & bananas, this dessert was beautifully presented and tasted amazing. I have to complement the waffle, which is soft and buttery going well with the fruits and ice cream on top.

|Panama Kotowa Wine|
One does not name themselves Thirdwave, unless they have a real understanding and skills in the coffee scene. This is where Thirdwave Cafe excel, with their award winning barista and coffee. We were given a short coffee appreciation session where the Panama Kotowa Wine was brewed in front of us, to be savoured while it's warm. Blessed with the lightness and sweetness of cherry flavour, it was clear, aromatic and really refreshing.
