Special thanks to Wesman for extending this food review invitation.

Update: This business has ceased its operations.

Pony Tale at SPICE Canopy has now been rebranded as Wesman. Like its predecessor, Wesman serves a variety of cuisines from around the world. This time, the restaurant presents a more business-like appearance in order to appeal to the corporate clientele.
As part of the rebranding exercise, the dining area has been noticeably revamped. The drinks counter is now fitted with iron frames, presenting a somewhat rustic appearance. Warm lighting and soft music provide a rather cozy ambience for casual dining.
Wesman serves set dinner from 6:00pm to 9:30pm every evening. There are 6 choices for the main dish. Each meal comes with complimentary soup, salad and dessert.
For something light, go for Caesar Salad With Grill Chicken (RM18.80). The salad comprises of grilled chicken, romaine lettuce, hard-boiled eggs, croutons and Caesar salad dressing. Much to my delight, the chicken is seasoned to perfection.
Next, the Baked Macaroni Chicken (RM22.80) is ideal if you enjoy the rich taste of prawn paste and cheese. This dish is best enjoyed while it is piping hot from the oven.
Another recommended pasta dish is Aglio Olio With Baked Oyster (RM38.80). Spaghetti is sautéed al dente with olive oil, and then rolled into a bundle and held in place with a pair of chopsticks. Presented on the side are oysters au gratin.
Fresh seafood is Wesman's forte, as evidenced by the Norwegian Salmon French (RM34.80). The salmon fillet is elegantly coated with sesame seeds, diffusing a soothing aroma that tantalizes the palate. Mixed vegetables, chickpeas and French dressing are served on the side.
As for something on the spicier side, Grill Portuguese Seabass (RM32.80) is a sound choice. The fillet is topped with a Portuguese-style spice mix, resulting in a fiery pungency that should not to be trifled with. Also included are spicy okra (lady's fingers), cucumber and carrot pickle, prawn crackers and turmeric-flavored rice.
True carnivores should really go for the Crusted Lamb Chop (RM48.80). Coated with an oat crust, the steak presents mouthwatering savoriness on the tongue. Balsamic reduction serves as the condiment. Side dishes are assorted vegetables and snow peas purée.
The type of soup varies from day to day. Today's pumpkin soup is prepared using the pumpkin's natural sweetness; no sugar is added. The soup is best consumed while it is warm.
Likewise, the actual dessert is different each day. I have the pleasure to tasting the Japanese cotton doughnut today. Unlike regular doughnuts, this one is delightfully soft and fluffy. It comes with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Having tasted the food, it is evident that Wesman uses premium ingredients and prepares food from scratch. In particular, the seafood used by Wesman is exceptionally fresh. Considering the food quality and restaurant's ambience, I must say that the food pricing is pretty reasonable.
