A couple of weeks back, I had the chance to drop by Jaya Grocer at Empire Shopping Gallery to check out their Taste New Zealand Food Fair. Everything New Zealand, where New Zealand Trade Enterprise has partnered with the Jaya Grocer chain of supermarkets for the first time, offering products which are bound to satisfy foodies. We were treated to a nice dinner too at Fresco! cafe inside Jaya Grocer.

|Fresco! Cafe inside Jaya Grocer Empire Shopping Gallery|
‘Taste New Zealand’, a food fair that was launched from 12 till 21 June 2015, where consumers can purchase good honest New Zealand products on special promotions and for the first time, a custom-made New Zealand menu that was available at all the Jaya Grocer cafes – Fresco Grocerant at Empire Subang, Mainplace USJ and The Intermark.
|Love these Kapiti ice creams|
|One isn't enough|
Consumers can also purchased exciting New Zealand products, such as Easiyo Yoghurt, PIC’s Peanut Butter, Prosper, Whittaker’s Chocolates, CHIA beverages, Rockit Apples, ZESPRI kiwifruit, Kapiti Ice Cream, Pure South lamb and Farmer’s Mill Gluten Free baking products.
|The healthy and tasty side dishes came in generous portions as well|
The custom made menu was developed using Pure South (Alliance) delicious lamb, Talley’s Sole Fish and Hoki Fillet, Kapiti Ice Cream, Mother Earth products and Whittaker chocolates. The healthy and tasty side dishes came in generous portions as well.
|Mustard Crust NZ Lamb Leg - RM26|
My favourite dish that night had to be their delectable Mustard Crust NZ Lamb Leg. Served on a plate, from the RTE Carvery Station, the tender piece of New Zealand Boneless Lamb Leg is roasted with a flavoursome mustard crust served with Honey Mustard Sauce and a side of vegetables.
|Baked NZ Whole Sole - RM26|
Seafood lovers will like the Baked NZ Whole Sole. Served from their ala carte menu, a baked whole sole fish caught in crisp New Zealand waters isserved with Prawn Mousse and Dill Lemon. Now here's a combinaton that brings out all the right flavours and sweetness of the sole fish.
|Oatmeal Hoki Fish and Chips - RM26|
For an interesting twist to your usual fish and chips offering, try the Oatmeal Hoki Fish and Chips from Jaya Grocer, a deep fried oatmeal-crusted Hoki fish fillet served with fries and tartare sauce. I find the oatmeal made the dish a tad too dry, but nothing can't be fixed with a dip into the tartare sauce, and everything's perfect again.
|It was a good dinner|
To end the meal on a sweet note, diners will receive a complimetary scoop (80 gram) of Kapiti ice cream with purchase of any New Zealand Food Promotion Meal from Fresco Grocerant. Diners also get a complimentary piece of Whittaker’s chocolate (15 grams) or Mother Earth’s Baked Oaty Slice with any coffee or tea ordered.
