Kuala Lumpur, 13 June 2023 – Common Man Coffee Roasters unveils their all new after-dark extension, Common Man Night Shift. Come sundown, Common Man Coffee Roasters transforms into Common Man Night Shift, home to an ensemble of elegant and delightful dishes that are inspired by classic Italian flavours made with a Japanese flair and a touch of Middle-Eastern freshness.
THE ELEGANT AND UNEXPECTED
Common Man Night Shift’s menu entices guests with its variety of exciting dishes. Kick things off with the freshly made Green Hummus (RM28) and Labneh (RM28), served with freshly baked sourdough flatbread. The Labneh is perfectly balanced with a tang, its lush, rich and creamy nature is elevated with an aromatic herb oil; while the Green Hummus is smooth, creamy and has a local twist with flavours lead by laksa leaves and coriander.
Next up is the decadent Duck & Foie Gras Pie (RM63). Cut into the flaky puff pastry, and indulge in a luxurious filling of duck mince, foie gras, and black truffles, served with a fruity burnt apple puree, sweet and umami orange miso sauce along with a side of arugula and fennel salad. Another anchoring signature is the Chicken Karaage (RM 33) for a juicy crunch of slow-marinated chicken thigh chunks with a zingy homemade kimchi mayo.
It would not be Common Man Night Shift without their signature 12” Sourdough Pizzas. Handcrafted to perfection using only the best ingredients including a 161-year-old starter, each slice embodies the perfect balance of crispy and airy, with a slightly chewy crust. Be spoiled for choice with six different pizza flavours, starting with the Lazy Brunch (RM48) which promises to be a firm favourite with its timeless flavour combination – tomato sauce, housemade chicken fennel sausage, creamy mozzarella and parmesan, red onions and Spanish guindilla chillies, packing a strong flavour punch.
Another must-try on the menu is the Umami Magic (RM45), an ultimate flavour bomb with a medley of oyster and shimeji mushrooms, creaminess from the ricotta and mozzarella, richness from the poached egg, topped with mala chilli crisps for that touch of aromatic spice.
Load up on freshness with the zesty Panzanella (RM28) and Grilled Vegetable Salad (RM33). The Panzanella is a classic Italian tomato salad with a delightful twist, loaded with fresh herbs, a tangy mustard dressing and brought to another level with a candied peanut and sesame brittle. The Grilled Vegetable Salad (RM33) is no boring old salad; flash grilled to perfection, the flavours and crisp textures of the vegetables is accentuated with a beautiful orange miso and briny anchovy cream dressing for that contrast of sweet and umami notes.
Round off the evening on a sweet yet perfectly balanced note with the Japanese inspired Yuzu Cheesecake (RM25) – a creamy delight spiked with yuzu flavours and served with an earthy herb oil. Meanwhile, the Okinawa Black Sugar Tiramisu (RM25) is an interesting take on the Italian classic. Savoiardi dipped in Hojicha and served with Okinawa Black sugar and soy sauce caramel for hits of sweet, creamy and salty.
