Happy holidays!

Happy holidays! 
The MANGO team had a "Secret Santa" gift exchange on X'mas eve and enjoyed the gift of giving. We found it wasn't easy keeping a secret...After keeping them under our tree, even our young customers were tempted by all the wrapped presents!

We've got a delicious menu coming this New Year's Eve. Hint- it's gonna be BIG. We'll email the updates and post it up here. Please check back for more next Tuesday. 

Also, we'll soon be introducing our new dessert-
Ruam mit Assorted Ice Sweets In Coconut Milk for the new year, if not sooner. Here's a juicy photo of it to give you a taste...

Drop us a line at mangocafekk@gmail.com if you wish to be included in all our email updates.

Behind the scenes...

For our latest Tom Yum Noodles, we're introducing them in simple, white tableware and spoons. We found these bowls and were attracted by their unique oval shape and size. They kinda resemble gold ingots, or even a hat.

Mango's Christmas tree..in purfect purple!

Our humble little tree now sits perfectly in the middle as you enter the cafe.
We'll be having a small colouring competition soon for our young guests, 12 and below. And in keeping with the season of giving, all kids will receive a little something from us.

What would the season be without a pumpkin-like dish? Many western cultures often serve 
pumpkin pies this time of year... so we thought a Thai pumpkin dessert would be ideal... though pumpkins are available all year round here..

Our latest dessert is:
Pumpkin in Coconut Milk- Fak Thong Gaeng Buat, 
RM4.00, or RM1.50 when you order the Festive Dinner Set!

Steamed sweet pumpkin in coconut milk and palm sugar, topped with fresh coconut cream.

Festive Times= Festive Dinner

We managed to get our purple theme coloured Christmas deco, but all that was missing were the lights. An after scouring the town for the LED ones, we finally got them on Monday. Will be posting pics of our little tree too...
Now our festive deco is almost complete, of course the final touch is the FOOD! 
We decided we had to have a red theme for the food, seeing that it's Christmas and all.
It's so affordable, you'd be silly not to try it out @ RM14.80.

Hello, Goodbye

We said goodbye to our long supporters of MANGO- the Ilstams left for KL, en-route to Thailand on Sunday.

Sending away the bad and bringing in the good

Our Loi Krathong set meal received an overwhelming response and customers were buzzing at MANGO from lunch 'til dinner on Wednesday. Apologies to those customers who patiently waited their turn, and to those who came disappointed after finding out all sets had been sold out. We are definitely considering a set meal similar to the Loi Krathong set in the near future... 
In fact,we were so busy, there wasn't a chance to capture the moment on 
The team had prepared for everything, including
krathongs, the day before. For 
customers who couldn't make it to the nearest river, we helped 
them send all their bad luck away by releasing their personalised krathongs at 
a river just beyond KK city.

The MANGO team had fun by the river, lighting and releasing their krathongs after a busy day.

Loi Krathong!

Loi, loi, loi krathong! Thailand's "festival of lights" falls during the fall moon on Wednesday, 12th November. Traditional banana leaf floats adorned with flowers, incense and candles- "krathong"- are set adrift along  and waterways as offerings, giving thanks to the water Goddess and for sending bad luck away in return for good fortune and happiness. 

For this special occassion, MANGO's Loi Krathong Set Meal for 2 is accompanied with a handmade krathong. The set is a typical Thai meal and only available on 12/11/08! 
Call us and make your reservations to avoid disappointment.

Also, this week's new addition to the set lunch is Pineapple Curry.

See you soon!

Imitation is the greatest form of flattery!

We came across a very similar format in The Daily Express, Sabah, on Friday, 17th October.
On the front page, a local seafood restaurant, Atlantis, advertised 2 of their food items, with an uncanny resemblance to MANGO's format! 
The similarities were distinct: 
-2 items, photographs and prices respectively
-Straightforward offer: Item & price- no additional text
-Phoenetically spelt name of item in local dialect

It's the first time since we noticed them advertising in the press, so we're flattered that they thought our ad format might work for them too!
