Namelaka Patisserie, Bangsar

 

Forget the pre cny detox- we always have the appetite for a good dessert, especially ones befitting the season. Namelaka Patisserie is the perfect pick for sweets to kickstart a year of indulgence.  Hidden away on the first floor in Telawi Bangsar, it is easy to missed the staircase leading to a bright and spacious room filled with calm and comfort. Look for the KK mart and the stairways will lead you to the simplicity of natural sweetness that wins my heart.

 

There is no shortcrust pasty or sweet filling and rich chocolate topping whatsoever, only the finest technique with the most creative input of inspiration gathered from both beauty and imperfection of real fruit. With lots of white chocolate, and celebrating mother nature’s creation of some of the tastiest fruits, Namelaka Patisserie created unique dessert taking form of real fruit accordingly to the flavor of each respective fruits, without even having to plate it to impress their customers. The brilliant twists lie in the form of the dessert molded in 3d and a ganache layer of fresh smooth fillings holding chunks of real fruits encased at the core of each dessert fruit, as this creamy filling hold the shape of the dessert. It will be a real challenge trying to pack this because from what I see, it is best consume in the house. And why not? Since the interior provide nothing but comfy and relaxing as well as sleek clean of immaculate white.

 

Attention to detail abounds. Passionfruit and pear have the most beautiful exterior and is aesthetically the prettiest if you badly need to feed your camera. Myself is so in love with the sleek green apple but while the names sounded like a breeze, it’s a dish best left to the professionals.

 

It’s not a cake and it looks almost too pretty to eat, but this fruit dessert is totally extraordinary not only in essence, it comprises real fruit, and when break open, creating an otherworldly confection that simple begs to be photographed.

Don’t forget to enjoy with their cocktail or coffee brew. I find myself drawn to their mocktail mainly thanks to the freshness of mint infused and the frizzy.
Namake is a very new establishment during my visit and more dessert would soon to come. It is not usual that I speak so highly on dessert places but I am liking no artificial sugar added so I am looking forward to what they have next.

1st floor, No 34, Jalan Telawi 2,

Bangsar, 59100, KL

Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar- Ramadan Buffet 2018

 

The best of buffet is obviously the assortment and wide selections but the Ramadan Buffet is always a little more localised with plenty of actions going on at the cooking stations. People were waxing lyrical about the usual suspects but Executive Chef Juzaili at the Pullman Bangsar’s LINK has got his specialties that really steal the limelight. There is a whole lamb marinated in a secret blend of spices and roasted to golden perfection and at the same time an unlimited dibs at the selection of their international spread. The food is truly global, with the local favourites sharing the spotlight with a host of western delicacies.

The restaurant’s decadent desserts run a close second to the jet-fresh sashimi and golden, deep-fried tempura.

Chinese New Year lunch at Pullman Bangsar

 

Call it Lou Sang, Lou Hei, or even Yu Sang, otherwise also known as the prosperity toss is the always a centerpiece of a typical Chinese New Year banquet feast. Things are not any different here at the Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar. Best to kick off the meal, this delightful mix of salad and bursting flavors and colours that represents abundance is always the first to reflect vibrancy in the new year. We tossed our way up at the recent lunch session and that was followed by individual bowls of piping hot comfort of delicious Double Boiled Song Ji Mushroom Broth with Conch Slice and Chicken, as well as the Steamed Giant Pearl Dragon Grouper with Shredded Ginger. The not-so-conventional fish dish is probably one of my favourite- Slices of fish gracefully steamed to the right texture with every silky piece skilfully cut. It is so satisfying to eat. No harsh bites, only rich chewy collagen and sweet bouncy flesh.

Also expect delicacies and classics elevated like this Braised Assorted Sea Treasure in Bamboo Basket, and the Waxed Duck Rice wrapped in Lotus Leaves. The thing about typical Chinese New Year feast is that there is no exception when it comes to luxury ingredients. We are talking about abalone, sea cucumber, fish maw, Chinese mushroom, prawn, smoked oyster, waxed duck, roasted duck, Chinese cabbage, and broccoli in that treasure pot.

What sets one restaurant apart from the other is probably the chef’s extraordinaire and an impeccably-styled pursuit of preparation of mandatory signature dishes. That was reflected in the dessert when the chef presents his creation of Homemade Carp Fish Nian Gao to go with Double Boiled Soy Milk with Snow Fungus, Lotus seeds, and Sea coconut. Would you look at the fish nian gao?

La Cave Wine Bar @ Telawi Bangsar

La Cave @ Bangsar

 

With a fourth generation wine maker Florian Paul Raymond as one of the partner, wine enthusiastic have a new option to sample more wines choices especially uncommon and unconventional labels from both the New and Old World wines. Donnie Eugene Maclary is the other brain of La Cave and it’s for the same passions especially for good wine and socialising, that the two made such good team to bring some unique drinking experience for consumers in the trendy Telawi enclave in Bangsar.

 

1.La Cave
2.La Cave

 

The “cellar” albeit tiny and narrow was very polished and cleverly designed with tiers of wine racks to showcase some over 200 odd labels starting from RM 75 per bottle on one side and the other, with a large mirror wall to produce space illusion. In the bar is strictly non-smoking but there’s a facade of alfresco seats. The passion for the business is clearly translated into their interior and everything is kept comfortable with warm lighting and bare tables and stools. It’s a mixed concept of modern and traditional. They offer this gorgeous space for events and functions with no extra charge but of course with a little profit from the wine. Food to pair with wines are available. At the moment, they serve pizza, cold cuts, cheeses, breads, and pate.

 

3. La Cave Bangsar
4.La Cave

 

Considering the abundance choice of rare and unfamiliar wine selections, owners are more than happy to talk wine and spirit with you. And while there’s a wide range of French wines, Florian, of course, recommends his family’s artisanal Fiesta label from Madiran, France. As a wine importer, expect reasonably priced bottles. To keep things even more interesting, there is certified halal alcohols! Check out this one with real 24K gold in it.

Birusan @ APW, Bangsar

Birusan @ APW (BAngsar)

 

This petite yet seductive corner fitted with the bar occupying almost 70 percent of the room is recently lively again and named Biru San now. This Japanese bar serves mostly Japanese alcohol and some small selection of classic cocktail choices. And with very limited space, you can slide up over to the bar or simply just be seated at the casual alfresco where you’ll be greeted by the most friendly and chatty service crew. Immaculately suited very properly and carefully suggesting our choice of drinks, it didn’t took us long to decide on what we want.

From Kamakaze (RM 25) to some good Old Fashion (RM 25) or Sake Martini (RM 25), the cocktails are celebrating happy hours along with their cosmopolitan décor. Want a regular booze with gas? Guineas Pint (RM 20) or Heineken Pint (RM 27) is available.

Nasi Lemak Burger @ Agak Agak, APW Bangsar

 

It was very well expected that many other variations would naturally pop up after the big success of the McDonald’s regional menu in Singapore. Nasi Lemak Burger has know reached us and in conjunction with the upcoming national day and Malaysia day, local cafes and eateries are all coming up with their own renditions off the Nasi Lemak Burger.

 

When McDonald’s did it, they figure the bun would be the only carb in the meal. That really got the Nasi Lemak fans a little confused and a little pissed but then again there will always be the opposition speaking up their mind but that didn’t stop the fast food chain from succeeding on they’re limited edition Regional menu. I thought it was OK coming from the nutritional side. It’s got to be the bun or the rice and I’m fine with just either one of it. In order to still have the very vital ingredient in the dish, Agak Agak had theirs with rice in the Burger. This way, there is still some delicious chew from the rice on top of the plump chicken with a good slap of sambal chili with ikan bilis and peanuts. Instead of thick cucumber slices, thin ribbons of cucumbers replace the lettuce in your conventional burger. Plus the runny yolk from the sunny side up, it sure is a mess eating it so be prepared to dig into a satisfying meal with all your fingers.

Expect a long waiting time (but pulp is just next door so go ahead and get your coffee fix) and this one is available till the 30th of September.

Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

A good meal completed with a good dessert is the most perfect meal and if you know where to begin, desserts are more than just sweet treats. Upperhouse Bangsar is a place specialized in desserts that would put a smile across your face every time the plate of dessert is served upon you.

1.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

The flow of dessert tasting starts with sweet and light refreshing Apple (RM 18), where there are thin slices of apple and kyuri as blanket, covering exquisite portion of hazelnut, chrysanthemum, vanilla, apple celery sorbet; all combined into a party of sweet refreshing tang texture of light juicy crunch from the apple slices. A light dessert after a heavy meal, a lot like a palate cleanse if taking just this.

2.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

As the savouring continues, the journey moved towards heavier and richer sensations as it progresses. Lemon (RM 22) showcases mainly lemon curd, and even though presented with some distinctive flavours like vanilla, lavender, raspberry, and coconut ice cream; it wasn’t prominent with the obvious eggy husking over the rest of the elements on the plate. On a side note, Coconut ice cream was very fresh when I had it. Alas, I savour the ice cream as it is a whole lot more than together with the rest on the plate.

3.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar
4.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

The Watermelon (RM 24) then came to salvage, and encompassing strawberry cotton cake, watermelon, hazelnut, basil, vanilla and a scoop of strawberry sorbet; this is particularly a food memory of Australia’s watermelon cake hype. The “artist” here painted the plate beautifully with the shade of watermelon red and while there isn’t really a proper way to eat this, you kind of just take all the bits and pieces mixing whatever flavours you think would work together- the perks of savouring deconstructed dessert dish. Generally, everything chosen by the chef matches well together in this one to create a refreshing bite of summer with the presence of watermelon in it.

Moving to richer taste, Carrot Walnut (RM 20) is presented and plated with Greek yoghurt, clever addition of honeycomb, and added extra moist with a scoop of burnt honey ice cream. After this, it is time for the major-hit-amongst-their-customers- dessert to come into the lime light. The Mille-Feuille (RM 24)- with crispy and light flaky layers of puff pastry, orange milk chocolate mousse, pineapple, almond, and my favourite hay ice cream; this one clearly is a big hit because it was extraordinarily pretty. Let’s be honest, have you seen any other café with a pretty mille-feuille dessert like this one. Alas, the flavours didn’t work as well as the looks and it didn’t impress me as much as the presentation. Eating this blind fold kinda reminds me of Cadbury zip bar- specifically the orange flavour.

Last but not least, something I’d strongly recommend. One of the mass favourite of course- Chocolate (RM 25). If you only get to pick one and only one dessert from this place, go for this one. But no, don’t restrict yourself to only one. That’s real sad.

11.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

The consistency of the chocolate texture was totally on the point and it offered a nice balanced taste to go with the honey comb, and all the toppings as well as the pairing ice cream. And that we are talking about 70% Callebaut , toasted rice, burnt honey ice cream.

12.Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

The kitchen also serves savoury. I’ve sampled the Cacao Ravioli which comes on a bed of capsicum sauce and I love it. Handmade pasta, done the proper way – al dente, and every parcel filled with delish mix of cheese and yummy forest mushroom. Plus the board with pieces of fried chicken drumettes lining up and escorted with dollops of aioli, this two is a good way of light savoury start before sampling their desserts.

And finally, the newest addition to their menu, the beautifully stacked tiers of delicate and delicious bites and pieces of savoury and sweet treats comprising of most of their best selling. Except this one comes in more elegant petit sizes of stylish and graceful presentation. Afternoon Tea Set (RM 65) showcased their signature Cacao Ravioli, two types of sandwiches and Parmesan breadsticks on the lower tier; and on the upper tiers, that best-selling Mille Feuille, macarons, Chocolate Pralines, Dark Chocolate Cake, Passionfruit Trifle and Raspberry Banana Bread.

The genius behind these pretty canvases of edible art work is Hester Ling and Gerard Ng, who are both professional pastry chefs that is not only clever and good at what they are doing, but incredibly passionate about desserts. This Australian-inspired dessert bar and kitchen that aims to introduce contemporary western cuisine and plated desserts to stimulate one’s taste buds is set with very simple vibe of casual setting to welcome family and kids. Chocolates in Upperhouse are
made to order using single origin cacao beans from Callebaut, reputed to be one of the finest
flavour cacao beans around due to soil, climate and habitat. So it is rest assured that chocolate drink is comforting at anytime of the day.

Striving to introduce the Australian-inspired casual dining with modern plating to the local food scene, it is totally a good bang for bucks because the ingredients are fine and well executed with plenty of effort and passion.
