Greenhouse by Muir - One-stop Japanese market, cafe, and bakery

24 May 2015 - I thought it was a real thrill to have a new quick Japanese F&B outlet at Jalan Ampang. Located just next to Gleneagles, you will definitely see this amazing 3-levels big architecture glasshouse, surrounded by trees and some old-school bricks built-up - Greenhouse by Muir.



What you ought to get when you are inside, seems it reminds me of a modernized Japanese supermarket, similar to Isetan supermarket, yet more towards dining section moment. 



Well done on the interior design as well, really giving you the concept of greenery, big strong ropes hanging over, with the feeling of Japanese designs.

from the start till the end of the section, you will walk into

1)   Evendough Cafe to order your drinks and cakes. For me, the drinks are pretty normal, as in I can get it elsewhere.





2)    Kuroshio Market, the Japanese Seafood Market, where you get to order fresh seafood, fresh oysters, sashimi, sushi,








3)    Hot food section: where you get to eat fried tempura, unagi, rice, noodles, etc.



4)   Last but not least, their Evendough Bakery. However, wasn't really tempted to try their bakery, reason being is the stomach would just say no, after eating all the hot Japanese food, sashimi and sushi...I mean it would be weird for me to try, unless you are a bread lover.



As per their description of their philosophy on what makes them 'greenhouse' - 'Greenhouse by Muir' turns ideas into reality, delivering the idea of Environmental Philosophy & Environmental Ethics through the love for food. Well, I do understand you really use lots of paper box, wooden chopsticks, plastic fork and spoon. However, I am not sure if such act really go green, despite we will keep using those disposable food containers and utensils?



Omg, see how messy it can be? Lost of appetite when we see this. they just mix everything together.




My food review: hot food not hot and nice at all. They pre-cook everything. Everything was served cold.





However, their fresh seafood and sashimi were awesome, fresh, and I would say slightly more expensive from the Isetan supermarket price.

At the very same building, they do have BRYCG restaurant that serves New Orleans cuisine, but I heard it was just an average cuisine moment.

I went Greenhouse by Muir three times for the past 1 year, but it has yet to impress me much. It might look greenery, nature, baronial building, but with its different concept, not to mention this is a self-service area. expect yourself to take lots of food, and end up stuck in a long queue just to pay off the food and drinks.
