A Place for All in Parklife

Parklife acquired its name from inspiration begotten by Blur, an English indie-rock band from London. They long to paint a picture of London Hyde Park under the natural sunlight, accompanied by the breeze rustling the leaves on the trees, and people picnicking on lush, green grass. Hence their slogan “A Place For All”.

The people behind the preparations of the food is every much just as important as the concept of any store, if not sometimes even more so. They are, after all, what makes the dream into a reality. With that in mind, we feel it vital that we introduce Chef Ling, the Head Chef of Parklife, to you.

Chef Ling, despite coming from an engineering background, discovered his passion for cooking whilst he was in London. As a direct apprentice of Yotam Ottolenghi, he worked with him for 10 years. He was instrumental in the growth of the now famous brand, growing from a single outlet to a few branches around London.

His personal portfolio was further expanded when he accepted a challenge with Correas in Russia, where he worked as a Creative Chef and trained chefs from more than 20 franchise outlets.

Having many years of valuable experience, he finally decided to come back to Malaysia to build his own brand. As a chef who’s already growing more well-known in the culinary industry in Malaysia, he gives his all to Parklife in hopes that his work will continue to influence the lives of many, making his patrons’ lifestyle brighter and healthier by the day.

First Cook’s Dishes

Displayed with splendorous lighting and clean, neat arrangement, 12 types of veggies sit beautifully by a glass wall for all to look in and see. Changing up their vegetable options every single month, their menu never gets boring! With that, let’s start with our first dish…

The Hummus — oh man do we have a lot to talk about that! It has got to be the first we talk about, as it’s extra special in Parklife — some would even go as far as to say that it’s better than the ones they had in the middle-east! It’s been so well-received that it’s been there since the beginning of the restaurant, never having been swapped out in the passing months! Never tried it before? Make Parklife your first, and you’ll never want hummus from anywhere else. Period.

Making good hummus takes tonnes of patience; after all, perfection cannot be rushed! Each day’s hummus takes the previous day’s hard-work, as the chef prepares ahead by soaking the chickpeas overnight. With only pure sesame Jordonian tahini as well as fresh lemon juice as two of its key ingredients, they make the hummus taste splendidly creamy. With hints of zaatar, sumac, and olive oil added, the flavours of the hummus pop out all the more prominently. Seriously, you HAVE to try this!

There are 4 types of platters, and we had the pleasure of their vegetable platter (other available platters include vegan, seafood, and meat platter). It’s contents include Grilled Halloumi Cheese (one of the best grilled cheese I’ve ever had), Goat’s Cheese, Roasted Vegetables, Portobello, Hummus with Pita Bread (😍), Olive, Tahini sauce, and Romesco sauce. No matter how full I was, I couldn’t help but stuff more vegetables into my mouth — it’s that good! Never thought I would say that… Parklife is amongst the first to have a vegan platter in Malaysia, and it will surely be an experience to take home.

Their meat options, despite only comprising of 20% of their menu, is definitely not a joke either. It took them meticulous care and time to craft up a masterpiece so tender that it practically melted under the pressure of your fork — three and a half hours to be precise!
