Special thanks to Bouncy for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Bouncy Food has recently opened a second restaurant in D'Piazza Mall. This new outlet, called "Bouncy", occupies the former location of Coffee Talk Premium. While the first outlet focuses on mainstream meals like burgers and pasta, the new restaurant pioneers an all-new concept in affordable dining.
The main dining section is very spacious. Its dark walls and dim lighting provide a hidden café-style ambience. Parents with kids can dine in peace as there is a children's room for the young ones to pass the time. Additional space on a raised platform provides a venue for aspiring musicians to practice.
For a brighter setting to hang out, get a seat at the front section of the restaurant. The glass window here allows outside light to illuminate the area. Meanwhile, ceiling fans provide an appreciable degree of ventilation. There is also a long counter for customers who prefer more casual dining.
Adjacent to the main restaurant is Bouncy International. The dining area here presents a more upscale atmosphere. Its kitchen presents an à la carte menu that covers home recipes from around the world. The menu is revised every fortnight. This week, French and Brazilian dishes are served.
Brazilian Potatoes Chickpeas (RM16.00) is quite similar in appearance to the Indian dish Chana Masala. This vegetarian dish is served in thick gravy and is garnished with rosemary and parsley. The meal is quite filling due to the generous amount of chickpeas.
Mushroom Leek Risotto (RM16.00) is another vegetarian dish on the menu. Risotto is not available today, so it replaced with linguine instead. The pasta is served with shiitake mushrooms and dried leek flakes.
Linguine Formaggio Di Aglio is one of the main dishes in the upcoming Valentine's Day menu. This Italian pasta is served with clams, cheese, tomato cubes, garlic and chopped parsley.
The à la carte meal also includes access to the buffet. In addition, customers can also opt for the buffet only. Instead of being charged a fixed price, the meal is priced according to the duration that one spends in the restaurant. This novel concept is known as Bouncy Meneeds.
Each customer is charged RM0.20 per minute, subjected to minimum bill of RM6.00 (30 minutes or less) and maximum charge of RM18.00 (90 minutes or more). Bouncy Meneeds features vegetarian food with emphasis on cooked food. The buffet meal also includes rice, soup, pastry and drinks.
Apart from food at the buffet tables, Bouncy Meneeds also allows customers to order from the à la carte menu. The menu covers fried rice, noodle, pasta, coffee and more. The à la carte menu lists extremely low prices; some dishes are actually priced at RM0.00!
For a limited time, Bouncy is also offering Cafe Latte for a mere RM1.00 per cup. The coffee beans are roasted by ICAF from Italy. ICAF offers several types of beans: Crema, Ricco and Intenso. I think the Crema version appeals to mainstream coffee drinkers.
Bouncy has additional dining space at the upper floor. The place is set up like an office and can be used for seminars and private events. There are several small rooms in which customers can have private discussions. Equipped with high-speed Wi-Fi connection, Bouncy provides a conducive place for customers to study or work.
Unlike most places, Bouncy does not charge a fee for using its facility. Instead, customers are only billed by the minute, up to a maximum of RM18.00 per visit. Throughout the entire duration, customers may enjoy free-flowing of food and drinks! Last but not least, it is also worth mentioning that Bouncy is a pork-free restaurant.
