Jumbrella CafΓ©

jumbrella cafe

Jumbrella Cafe is an interesting al fresco concept cafe that has a great theme. Jumbrella is a concatenation of the words Jumbo and Umbrella and that’s exactly what the cafe is – a giant outdoor eating establishment under a huge canopy.

The place is only open at night since the area (with the exception of the brick and mortar kitchen) is used as a park during daylight hours. Thus, the canopy (umbrella) is modular and constructed at night with the seating arrangements all taken out and set when the place opens at around 7 pm.

I didn’t really notice this place until I sent a friend there to meet up with her coworkers for supper one night. Jumbrella Cafe is tagged as a bakery, cafe, dessert and grill house. I thought the sign said dumbrella Cafe at first glance. Unfortunate choice of font there for the signage. πŸ˜‰

Jumbrella Cafe has a huge projection screen which attracts football fans during the game. The place serves beer as well, which goes well with a football match, I’m told. It can get a bit crowded during the major events like the Olympics but there are fan and mist units so it’s not warm unless the ambient temperature is.

The service at Jumbrella Cafe is inconsistent. The waiter/waitress of undetermined gender above gives excellent service while some of the others felt like taking orders was a huge chore and probably just wanted to curl up in a ball at home.

jumbrella food intro

Anyway, this is one of the very rare occasions where I have to write a bad review about the food. It has dropped below the “nothing to write home about” standard to downright bland. I wouldn’t call it bad per se, but it’s very unimaginative and plain – not exactly adjectives you would want your food to be addressed by. πŸ˜‰

jumbrella spaghetti

This is Jumbrella Spaghetti (RM 9.50). Bland and tasteless.

jumbrella lamb chop

This is Lamb Chop with Black Pepper Sauce (RM 20). Bones and fatty meat.

jumbrella oj

This is Orange Juice (RM 7). Watered down and diluted.

jumbrella loklok

This is Fried Lok-Lok (RM 4). Over fried and tasteless.

jumbrella autumn

This is Autumn (RM Priceless). Delicious!

jumbrella ending

It’s the only dish I had that was absolutely fabulous. πŸ˜‰

  1. Yeah… not your usual style of complaining instead of praising most of the time. But at least you have one priceless ‘item’ there with you. That will make your food from tasteless to tasty. wahahaha…

  2. The thing that pisses me off the most is whenever i patronize any eating outlet is the waiters/waitress who takes orders like life’s a bitch and “a colossal chore”

  3. Ha ha ha can’t stop laughing. Since U cannot tahan the food what more to say plp like me. Anyway thats what I wanna hear no bias and honest review with the food. Try most of the place you blog at Kch and sadly nothing to write home.

  5. Sounds like this place needs a Gordon Ramsay shakedown.. with some swearing in the kitchen and waiters told to make a decision about their gender,, it’s either one way or the other.. but not both.

  6. I see why i never go there.
    that spaghetti doesnt look appealing at all. and it costs you RM9.50?!
    ans seriously, sugarbun is across the place. u can go upstairs, it is a nice place to sit too!! forget about olympic, there is no more olympic now.

  8. Hey, I am Pomai from Hawaii and got a food blog too. Ejoy reading your also. Mine is Tasty Island. Check out the McDonald one of haipia pie and taro pie.

  9. Couple of interesting points:
    So they can water it down AND dilute it?
    Best of all the serve ‘deserts’.
    I’d like to see them get the Gobi or Sahara on a plate.

  10. Choonie: Haha! Yeah, I thought it would be a funny rehash of the Mastercard ads. πŸ˜‰
    Darren: Yeah, I know what you mean. It pisses me off to no end too. They probably should have stayed home.
    Dr. Tan: He’s a ladyboy and proud of it. πŸ˜‰
    Roland: I am usually quite kind with my reviews unless the place really sucks. Jumbrella doesn’t really suck, but the food does. Still a nice place to chill if the weather is good though and you’re just drinking beer.
    essentric: Yeah, and we actually ate there first! This was supper. We’re hearty eaters. πŸ˜‰
    Blue Curacao: It’s not very appealing, yeah. I didn’t even know the place existed until recently. It doesn’t open in the mornings so it’s very low visibility.
    suituapui: Yeah, I know it’s been around but I just didn’t know about it until recently. The food sucks but the place serves beer. πŸ˜‰
    clement: Yeah, it’s nothing to write home about, this place. Gives a bit of a mamak ambiance though.
    Jeff: ROTFLMAO! Hahaha! Your comment made my day. Cheers for that. Yeah, choose ye this day which gender thou should become. As for me and my house, we will serve heterosexuality. πŸ˜‰
    Blue Curacao: The chef from hell. Haha! πŸ™‚
    whey: Well, it doesn’t taste like shit, but it didn’t taste too good either. πŸ˜‰
    Anonymous Creep: Done. πŸ™‚
    I’m going to do this from now on. Hari ini Dalam Sejarah (HDS) is going to be the very first comment in every post that I make instead of in the post itself.
    Jane: Ya lor…and I own shares in SugarBun somemore. But we did go there before coming over for supper.
    YingYang: Yeah, that’s what the name means. πŸ™‚
    Pomai Kealoha: Hello there! It’s good to hear from you. I love Fast Food Inc. posts from other countries. Just gotta love localization. πŸ™‚
    suituapui: Yeah, felt better already. Cheers!
    henry the thirst: Heh! My mistake. Redundant statement. πŸ˜‰
    Hey, you’ve got a great eye for detail, I didn’t even notice they had dessert spelled wrongly in the signboard.
    Haha! I just love your wit, mate. πŸ™‚
