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,

Legit burger joint at Jalan Imbi- Burger on 16

Burger On 16 at Jalan Imbi
#sycookiesxburger #foodeverywhere

 

Burger on 16 pride themselves on using the best meat. The burgers are uproariously good, but so is the atmosphere at this fun food joint. Service is smiley and personal, and the thoughtful availability of power sockets and wifi connection to digital nomads as well as visiting tourists or neighborhood hostel residences. In a city where anyone with access to buns and patties proclaims they’re the best, it takes something unique and innovative to stand out from the crowd. In the case of Burger on 16, the difference is the incorporation of crowd favourite- cheese. The burgers here are quite some good ones around Klang Valley- some with cheese inside the patty and on the patty, another with pesto sauce, but what gives this operation its appeal is the value for money and an extra dollop of fun.

Crowd pleaser California Cheese Skirt (RM 25.90) and Mad Cheese 200g (RM 24.90) are humming with flavour and far more complex in creation than they’re ever given credit for. Beef Patty topped with cheese skirt, or stuffed with cheddar cheese, with tomato, jalapeno caramelized onion, sharp cheddar cheese, lettuce and sauce. There is not much space for anything beyond the cheese skirt. This cheese skirt is ever compromising my burger grip but come on, it’s cheese we are talking about. If you prefer white meat alternative in your burger, there is one with grilled chicken breast topped with caramelized onion, tomato salsa, cheddar cheese, lettuce and basil pesto sauce. This Chicken Phenomena (RM 17.90) maybe a little dry compared to their beef patties despite smothered in those delicious and rich pesto sauce, but eat it while its hot. You’ll enjoy it as much.


Chicken Phenomena (RM 17.90)

Mad Cheese 200g (RM 24.90)

California Cheese Skirt (RM 25.90), and look at the size of this half burger

And you don’t need to know how burgers are grilled, or where they are imported from. All burger joints tell you the same. You just need to know that if you’re going to be eating burgers, and munching on sides like Cowboy Fries (Beef/ Chicken) RM 13.50 and Buffalo Wings (RM 14.90), both of which is a little salty to me but I maybe the only being picky over my food. Folks within the proximity is lucky to have this burger joint grilling 7 days a week.

Cowboy Fries (Beef/ Chicken) RM 13.50
Buffalo Wings RM 14.90

And don’t forget to wash it all down with of milk shake or smoothies because Nutella chocolate milk shake is da bomb! But of course, when da bomb is too much to take in, check out their coffee. They’ve invested quite a bit at the coffee machine yet they are decently priced at less than RM 10 for a cup of latte.
Mango smoothie RM 12.90, Nutella Chocolate milk shake RM 12.90, Latte RM 9.90, Ice Lemon Tea RM 7.50

This one appeared on the vlog, watch our visit to the joint!

And what can never go wrong is the White Chocoffee when the blend of white coffee mix is put together with chocolate and peanut butter. While these already lightening the mood at the table, the Kaya-Nika Fusion beguiled me with their presentation before getting me hooked onto the delicious layers of sweet and creamy with traditional `kaya’, `gula melaka’, `pulut’ and red beans. This one is truly Malaysian and I must highlight that piece of toast piercing through creamy brim of the mason jar. It was ridiculously delicious eating the rich buttery toast with icy cold bites of actual lumps of pulut rice and red beans- this could be a dessert on its own.

Afternoon Tea @ Fritz Brasserie (Ground Floor, Wolo Hotel)

 

Privileged to be tasting the new addition from my favourite dining establishment, there is absolutely nothing quite like the indulgence of the lovely Afternoon Tea especially when it is with some friends I haven’t seen in a while. Fritz Brasserie at Ground level of Wolo Hotel is now serving these tiers of sweet and savoury dainty bite sized treats featuring their new menu of delectable bites like the chicken curry kapitan with cilantro mayo and a smoked salmon croissant, as well as a variety of sweets, including their newest range of Baby Cakes. Being invited to taste the new serving, it was the perfect and most wonderful excuse to sit through the middle of the afternoon and leisurely sip through your tea or coffee.

Serving high tea daily from 3-6pm and for RM 55+ per person, this is including a pot of tea of your choice, or if you’d prefer coffee. I personally love tea at tea sessions and appreciates the art of afternoon tea very much despite the higher sugar content in general. But the art of afternoon tea has gradually from where it is originated became what we seemed as a fashionable indulgence. Even more so when it quickly spread from common tea rooms to the garden. Here in Fritz Brasserie, things are better with the first-class services from their meticulously well-dressed service crew, in the overwhelmingly decorated interior at the establishment. This no – nonsense modern European designed establishment with grand chandelier over the space with high ceiling and tall window panes would be the ideal place providing calm and serenity to keep those hunger pangs in between lunch and dinner at bay.

Hands and Heart @ Bangkok, Thailand

 

Beyond their instagrammble white lay out, this coffee spot delivers for those serious about their brew. An understated coffee bar with minimal seating, it’s probably not the best place to linger but serious coffee drinkers will find this an essential destination for the passion of coffee brewing is hard core at this cafe. While coffee bean from various origins are part and parcel of this impressive coffee bar, there is one particular item on the menu that caught my heart, soul and everything or anything you can probably think off to have me returning again.

Myself could come up with reasons more than you can shake a stick at to revisit for their Kombucha Coffee. Being a huge fan of Kombucha mainly because of that unique and pleasant taste on top of the beneficial factors, the coffee Kombucha here is probably the best I have ever had so far. And to make it worst now that I am back home, I’ve not found any place in Malaysia with coffee Kombucha half as close to this one that I’ve had here in Hands and Heart Bangkok. Oh well…looks like I am visiting Bangkok again real soon.

Foodieville at the Melawati Mall

 

The new super-regional Mall of Melawati represents the heart of Melawati– a township developed on a scale beyond just leisure and business. Not only is it a natural meeting point for business and leisure, as well as a preferred recreation venue for families and friends, it is also the one stop for foodies. The mall is positioned to be an iconic lifestyle hub, located in Taman Melawati, adjacent to residential areas of Wangsa Maju, Built Antarabangsa, Taman Permara, Kemensah Heights, and of course the Taman Melawati.

 

With accessibility from 5 major highways (Duke, MRR2, Karak, AKLEH, and the future KLORR) and LRT stops, this joint development of CapitaLand and Sime Darby sure promises plenty of excitement.

 

Opened on 26 July 2017, Melawati Mall has formed the iconic hub and with substantial anchor tenants, a carefully selected retail mix, and a wide diversity of food and beverages, we are looking at a shopping experience crafted for foodie like me. The recent Foodville makanlicious food hunt organised by the mall to showcase their partner restaurants was a great success and we covered six restaurants within the mall in a day, it was a blessing.

Starting with the Jamaica Blue cafe and named after the Blue Mountain in Jamaica, they take pride in the 2 types of coffee beans – the Jamaica Blue Signature Blend, and the Jamaica Blue Mountain. Both the award winning coffee and the world’s best coffee were delivered perfectly alongside the fabulous food. Perfect to start the day, their Signature Harvest Menu really captured my attention. We all know I love starting the day right with the right food. And this Super Fruit Bowl (RM 19.90) and the Enrichment Bowl (RM 19) is probably also a fabulous choice for fitness enthusiast. And don’t miss out both the award winning coffee and the world’s best coffee were delivered perfectly alongside the fabulous food.

Second stop brought us to the best of cuisine that is truly unique as a heritage of Malaysia. Baba Nyonya by Sambal- chili offers the wide selection of rich spices and herbs with dishes prepared upon order for their diners to ensure the freshness of each dish. Combining Chinese wok and claypot into local rempah, Chef Rimong made sure that the rich culinary flavour is delivered in their Peranakan dishes. Homey and comforting, the dishes were packed with flavours we are all familiar with. The dishes are not the only thing that’s capturing the heritage of Malaysia. The interior and paintings on the wall is equally as heart-warming. Check out their batik prints on their menu. Every piece of menu has a unique piece of batik cloth on it.

With their beautifully painted dining room, the décor in this next stop may be slinky and contemporary, but is serving a good value, including a lovely selection for both ala carte and communal dining. Must have is the steam fish. It is marvelously comprehensive with a blend of all sour, spicy, salty, sweet delicious clear broth with the plump white fillet submerging in it. Dishes at the Tiger Lily are designed for Thai food lover with menu built around familiar street food as well as some signatures of Thailand flavour.

With an open kitchen parading and showcasing the flow of your burger preparation right from where the meats are grinded and patties are grilled and assembled into stacks and layers of meats and cheese and buns and lettuces. Served with their fresh potato chips, every bite of the burger will be elevated with the texture of those crispy chips. Wayback Burger has landed in Malaysia and apart from the many fnbs that I’ve reviewed for the recent foodieville, there is no way I would let this slide and this one is the exciting one that I was really looking forward to during the restaurant hopping session. Meat is very fresh and delicious when I had it, and the buns are what’s different from many burger chains in town. In fact, they are probably the few that does their burger buns in such. Burger bun is grilled with butter and inverted so be ready to have all fingers greasy when eating the Cheeeesy Burger (RM 22.99). This is the signature and with double patties and 4 slices of cheddar cheese, you either love the flavours or you hate it.

The last stop was a real down-home deal, a masterful comfort food with a quality coffee brewed with single origin imported from Gayo Highland’s Acheh Indonesia. Be it the gorgeous alfresco area or its stunning rustic contemporary mix of atmosphere; don’t let this modern design deter you because it doesn’t burn a hole in your wallet.

Of course, the food savouring isn’t complete without some sweet delights. And what is better than a sharing bowl with varies balls of creamy and flavoursome ice cream scoops from Swensen’s? Good old solid ice creams with many flavours to choose from and offering not only ice cream, there are comfort casual meals as well. This one is the Earthquake Sundae with eruptions for presentations!!

Be Sixth Comfort Food @ Melawati Mall

 

The last stop at my recent visit to the Melawati Mall is a real down-home deal, a masterful comfort food with a quality coffee brewed with single origin imported from Gayo Highland’s Acheh Indonesia. Be it the gorgeous alfresco area or its stunning rustic contemporary mix of atmosphere; don’t let this modern design deter you because it doesn’t burn a hole in your wallet. We are looking at brunch serving till 4pm and plenty of hearty and delicious dishes made to order. Start with tasty bites like Nachos and Quinoa & Mango Salad before digging into their modern plating of comforting meal options.

The main spotlight, however, should be the protein choices like the Beef lasagna and Rib Eye which either gets a roast and bake in oven and served as main or those that topped over al dante pasta coated with intensely flavourful pasta sauce. Also, who could resist those beautifully baked eggs? It is really wonderful that brunch serves till 4pm.
