Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

For a place with such good reputation for its food and cocktails, and entering celebrating its second anniversary, the Locker and Loft is refreshingly cosy: classy furniture, neat tableware, and a handsome bar counter lined with whiskies, ales, beers, cocktails and a good list of wine varietal. It has a hidden entrance but upon entering is a calm and cool place to eat and drink. Especially with their newest menu specially crafted for the cleaner taste profile. I was privileged to sample some of their newest cocktails and boy I love them less sweet and more refreshing than ever! That we are looking at bubbly remix of carbonated fresh coconut water with real coconut and the mild sweetness from the aromatic pandan leave especially when it gets close to your nose whilst bring it close to sip. K Rock! (RM 25)maybe lower and calorie but that really isn’t a bad thing. Because that means some more calorie quota for the CNY 2018 special- Babi Lu Mary (RM 40). One that has bakwa infused tequila, and some bold addition of with tomato juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, Lea & Perrins, Tobasco, salt, pepper & olive brine. Not forgetting the Blueberry milkshakes (RM 34)and The King (RM 38). The first really got me frenzy and while the later might be a crowd pleaser, durian really isn’t my thing. But dear durian fans, you are going to be drinking a controversial natural durian cocktail with vodka, Baileys, hazelnut liqueur, vanilla ice cream, almond syrup and cinnamon powder. (At this point, I realised that I’ve subconsciously held my breath as I described it.)

 

Of course there are some that I really enjoyed- all Tea Garden, LC 1 (RM 32) and Kopi Ice (RM 35) were all super easy to drink. I’ve always dislike eggwhite in cocktail but I do not dislike this, probably because of the floral hints from lavender. Despite looking ordinary, I am putting LC1 and Kopi ice as a strong contender for one of the tastiest cocktail for the night.

Their focus is on making both diners and drinkers feel happy and comfortable. Apart from their list of new cocktails, there’s new shot glasses made of ice and clients can now order the cocktail- catering service for a pop-up bar at private occasions. This one is real intriguing. But moving to the new food menu, it is a symphony of fantastic flavours we are all somewhat familiar with.

 

From delicious bites like Malacca Style Roti (RM 16), Salted Egg Prawn Cocktail (RM 23), and Varuval Quesadilla with Pineapple Chutney (RM 23), to succulent meat dishes like the Hainanese Chilli Chicken Wings (RM 25) and Peanut sauce Pork ribs (RM 26), you’ll never suffer regular pub grubs to accompany your alcohol. Malacca style roti really reminded me of Melaka roti john and that really is something I fancy. That quesadilla is one innovative complement to the pineapple chutney.

Kitchen also apparently excel in seafood preparations. Seabass Fish Fingers (RM 21) cooked with precision, came crunchy on the outside and breaded nicely without falling apart.

Mains are hearty, as well as glorious when you get pasta loaded with big flakes of sardine as well one with so big cuts of bacon bits. I like both the Chili Padi Sardine Bacon Pasta (RM27) and Pasta Masak Lemak with Bacon Bits (RM26) especially when the pasta are cooked perfect to my liking- al dente that is.

It’s a pleasure to pair and enjoy alcohol with quirky selection of food because the food at Locker and Loft is clearly presented by someone who cares about flavour. Not every dish was a knockout but where there were failings it was down to being over generous rather than unskilled; sardine and bacon maybe a little too much in ratio to the pasta resulting a slight overpowering of salty but most of the menu offers satisfying, moreish, somewhat complex dishes, the kind you always want from dining experience and so rarely get. Yup, I tried the Mini sliders consisting of 3 different patties and I enjoyed it very much.

 

15.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)

 

Cempedak Goreng with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM16) wasn’t the greatest, but it’s something I would order again on my next visit. And yes, revisiting is most likely happening. I love cempedak still wrapping the seed and they are serving this seedless. But hey, it’s about how much you love fried cempedak and how this one is so perfectly pairing with the scoop of ice cream it combines to become a dessert that is absolutely delicious.

The Locker and Loft isn’t a place where tables brushed and every detail seen to by the serving crew but it is super chill place eat, drink and have plenty of fun enjoying everything they have to offer. Among its upcoming events are KL Rum Fiesta, GT Week, KL Amateur Bartender Challenge, The Shooter Week, Do The Classics and Sangria Sessions. There are also other regularly-scheduled events like Shake N Take (make your own cocktails every Thursday), BBQ Sunday, Sake Sundays and Dames Night. So make sure to follow their updates on their page. There is so much fun factor coming from the folks of this establishment.

Thursday DIY cocktail with new menu @ Locker & Loft, Damansara Kim

 

We have come to the time when cocktails are being taken so seriously but things are kept easy going with plenty of fun at the Locker & Loft at Damansara Kim. The concoctions of gins, rums, syrups, fruits or even spices is some of the best way to kick off proceedings when sneaking into the hidden restaurant and speakeasy-inspired cocktail bar. There is a feel of distillery and with the stunning and eye catching 25-foot cooper bar, thirst quenching is never an issue at this outlet designed by the owners- Deepak-Gill and Paul Dass themselves.

As soon as I found my way through their locker door, the evening quickly started with cocktails. With also a large selection of imported brews- your gins and rums as well as whiskies, and even our very own Sarawakian Tuak, I’d say their drinks menu is impressive. Attentive staff handed a quick questionnaire just so we could narrow to what the palate prefers. Both diners or drinkers would feel so at home with the dining space with that handsome bar counter but the DIY cocktail bar is where all the fun is when we put our hands on the shaker and craft your very own cocktail with the guidance of their mixologist. Yours truly made a delicious one but really, don’t ask me what I put in there because hey, I can’t be taking notes after those shots and some of their classics and the house cocktails can I ? They are constantly on research and the team puts up new cocktails very frequently to keep things interesting.

Being the first for a cocktail bar to have a full dining menu, Locker & Loft is quite the convenient place for plenty of fun and of course those quirky Malaysian inspired booze to pair with delicious dishes. It’s clearly not all about the drinks because the food menu is equally as impressive. From Tapas to mains and desserts, orders are made from scratch with no msg and plenty of clever use of spices to incorporate some Malaysian inspired flavours. I love the Potato and Bitter Gourd Pakora with a clever incorporation of jackfruit and chilies bundled together with the thinly sliced potatoes and served with mint yogurt dip. The bitter gourd wasn’t apparent and obvious but I actually secretly wished that it would be slightly more prominent.

Also sink your teeth into tender pieces of grilled lamb marinated Masala, skewed and served with mint sauce and flat bread for some Indian flavours or go for some Chinese touch with their Smoked Duck Aglio Olio. Pasta is lightly tossed with smoked duck breast, lap cheong, chili flakes, shitake mushroom, roasted peanuts and cherry tomatoes.

There is apparently a lot more about this place that deserves plenty of spotlight. For music aficionados, the establishment runs Bluesy and Alternative Rock Nights on Tuesdays as well House Sessions on Friday nights, featuring local deejays such as Blastique. And every Sunday os a fun BBQ in the balcony with man’s best friends allowed at the establishment.

The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @Damansara Kim

 

Perfectly tucked within a neighbourhood-friendly shop row, The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery at Damansara Kim is that perfect place for a delicious and comforting meal. Minimally designed with simplicity, this neat tranquility is also a good place for photography. During the day, the room is filled with natural lighting and approaching evening, there is the simple pendant light to illuminate whilst adorning as an interior decoration.

Menu was simpler at the point of our visit but I believe the menu has expanded into something more impressive. What we had were delicious and occasionally there is daily menu, which is amazing as a treat for the neighborhood patrons that frequent the diner and I am absolutely returning again one of these days. There is a good fare for everyone, whether you are looking for an egg-heavy feast, mouthwatering meaty fry-up, or even a complete break from typical breakfast fare with pastries and coffee, one would be able to favourite a selection from your order.

Pulled Pork (RM 12.50) puts together a good compliment of main and side salad with delicious and juicy julienne of beetroots and carrots.

There is no immaculate uniform whatsoever but the easy going charm appeals to the more relaxed type of neighoubourhood diner. Appetizers are fun but something with more depth of flavours means protein packed dishes ideal for weekend brunches. Things like the Roast Chicken Sandwich (RM 15.90) and Fry Up (RM 24) of streaky bacon, scrambled eggs, baked beans add grilled tomato. Their beetslaw is what I really love in their side and the sourdough is one of the very good ones I’ve had in this neighbourhood.

And if sweet is what you love to start the day with, they have beautiful sweet dishes.

The quality ingredients of their small menu has some reasonable priced dishes- but don’t get too comfortable; the place opens with break and while service is helpful, food is to be paid upon ordering at the counter.
