Called as Cafelab, does it mean this is the place where we dine and perform experiment simultaneously? This is what my Significant Other asked when I took him there to meet up with some friends two weekends ago. As he stared at me with a strange look, I started to imagine beakers, measuring cylinders and chemicals in fume cupboard! Of course not!

Some items that we tried
Mushroom soup as starter and followed by Traditional Fish and Chips.
Innovative to include brinjals and carrots. Unfortunately, the batter was not as crispy as what I expected.
Healthy Set with Tofu Egg, Steamed Vegetable and a selection of nutritious soup (sorry ~ they are named in Cantonese slang which I am totally not familiar with!). Anyway, I love the nutritious soup the most!
Chicken Piccata – somehow it arrived late, the last among everybody’s order.
Spaghetti Chicken Bolognise cost RM9.86 after 15% discount.
If you are looking for a new fusion restaurant, OXO Cafelab is a good try with reasonable price and cozy ambiance. It is very popular among FIZ residents, so if you are heading for lunch during working days, give them a tinkle first to make reservation. Hope you enjoy!
