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.

Agak Agak @ APW, Bangsar

 

Agak agak in APW caters to the trendier and more adventurous tastes but while they innovate and pushes the boundaries for a fusion excitement, this hipster space at this hippie enclave is offering its take on Asian comfort food, enriched by the embrace of western trend.

Starting with simple crispy fried chicke wings, they serve this tantalising wings with cream fraiche and a fallopian of black caviar. Simply called the Chicken and Caviar (RM 28), the combination of these two elements work well. Let the caviar finish sent the umami senses straight into overdrive with their generous amount.

 

3.Agak Agak APW

4.Agak Agak APW

 

Talked about usage of unique ingredients, further evidence of such excellent effort is seen in the Chili Pate Mee (RM 32) and Sapporo Wantan Mee (RM 32). The two is abandoning authenticity completely for sure. The first is obvious when incorporating chicken liver pate and kicap nitamago, and the second; red miso as the primary umami flavour for the otherwise lacking in taste wanton noodle.

 

5.Agak Agak APW

6.Agak Agak APW

 

The two dishes rendered far from the time-honoured flavour and the thing you’ll absolutely never get for sure is to have these combinations plugging into the definition of food memories. Such classic dishes being tempered with modern influences could turn out a fusion mess depending on how you look at it.

 

7.Agak Agak APW

8.Agak Agak APW

 

They are fine so long as you dismiss what they are and openly accepts it as something new. Prices are slightly on the heavier side but if you are up for some creativity and bold flavours, then why not? Take their home soup for instance. The serving of the day is my favourite Cauliflower Soup (RM 14) and they certainly spoilt their patrons when including a generous dollop of caviar into the smooth creamy soup of the day.

 

9.Agak Agak APW

 

Desserts are more likely to earn all spotlights with my all time favourite being the Earl Grey Milk Tea Cake (RM 14). Most of the desserts are classic desserts with with creative flavours of both traditional and contemporary coming together to create that spark of happiness. Think milk tea infused grey bundt cake draped in an earl Grey tea cream cheese frosting.

 

10.Agak Agak APW

 

Or a dense bundt cake made of local key limes for some tang sweetness. Tart and creamy, go for the Limau nipis cake (RM 14). Otherwise, the Kacang Tumbuk (RM 14) is offering yet another bundt cake made using three layers of local peanut candy, kacang tumbuk bits in, on and around it is ever ready to fill you up with all the sugar sweetness.

 

11.Agak Agak APW

12.Agak Agak APW

13.Agak Agak APW

 

For something a little more solid and friendly for sharing, go for the Pengat Pisang French toast (RM 22). It serves thick slice of custard milk bread pan seared and served with a side of pengat pisang and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

 

14.Agak Agak APW

 

Drinks menu is a single page list of some concoctions as well as some familiar taste of local palate. We tried Kopi Susu (RM 7.90) and Kopi O (RM 7)- our local ipoh coffee with and without condensed milk; and the Teh Serai + Halia (RM 10)- our local black tea with lemongrass and ginger. Everything were slightly a little sweet to my liking. And since the cakes are already devil sweet, I highly recommend requesting them to eliminate addition of sugar. Take the ginger tea without sugar. Make it a hot serving. Their perfect to pair with the cakes.

Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2, Bangsar

 

Marmalade Café @ Bangsar (Bangsar Village 2)

 

Now is always a good time to get satiate and energised with healhty meals but finding one that would please the entire family or everyone in the crowd is never an easy task. Not everyone is up for nutrition filled juices, and children sometimes still have tantrums getting their hands on the greens. Marmalade café in Bangsar Village caters to all and if you are ever stuck, pick from their all day brunch menu. The menu is simple, essentially great for picky eaters as well as those who simply need a comforting wholesome meal.
5.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

Jump on the detox bandwagon with their fresh juices and give yourself a nutritional upgrade. I love my Single Beetroot Juice (RM 12) although I doubt it is a crowd pleaser but beetroot lover and healthy conscious ones are going to love this as much as I do. Apart from juice mixes and milkshake smoothies, there are espresso brews as well as tea and some usual quenches commonly found in most cafes. Flat White (RM 12) is not any healthier than any other cuppa but it would help with the caffeine fix.

 

1.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

Although nothing said organic (not that I paid attention to) but there are no processed food, only real food to create hearty and comforting meals bursting with flavors. Marmalade combines great food with relaxed environment supplemented with a good child play area; the café feels very family and crowd friendly. I am very happy with their smoothie bowl, it wasn’t difficult to pick when there is the Berry Bliss (RM 20). Blueberries, strawberries and banana blended for base and topped with chia seeds, sliced bananas, and an assortment of berries.

 

2.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

Moving to the delicious brunch menu, Crab Cake Benedict (RM 32) gives you a beautifully poached egg covered in hollandaise sauce laid on a deck of crab cakes with seared tomatoes and grilled asparagus, along French onion and a crispy potato rosti.

 

3.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2
6.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

Norwegian Bagel (RM 26) gets all the limelight the moment I sink my teeth into smoked salmon sandwiched between a toasted poppy seed bagel, nicely flavoured with a spread of zesty cream cheese, accompanied with pickled cucumber and red radish.

 

4.Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village 2

 

There is so much on the menu that I wanted to try but there were only two of us and to avoid food wastage, we decided to hit on Salmon Laksa (RM 29) and Garlic Basil Pesto (RM 26) and the both totally score with the texture of the chewy udon noodle and al dante spaghetti. Udon here sits in spicy laksa broth with plenty of salmon chuicnks, diced pumpkins, beancurd puffs and topped with shredded cucumber and onions. Garnished with mint leaves for a beautiful finishing. And as for the pesto pasta, they are all coated in pesto and smashed broccoli, tossed with cherry tomatoes, and topped with baked parmesan. Pesto and broccoli in fantastic ratio along with the garlic and pine nuts, this combination is nothing but superb.

Chocha Foodstore KL

 

Chocha Foodstore in the heart of kl is another addition to the retro hipster café trend that is good for a cultural fix. With the vintage ambiance and preserved architecture, the retro décor takes a journey of nostalgic trip back in time into this piece of local history. Every corner displays such amazing lighting that is absolutely perfect for photo taking; this once upon a time a hotel has quickly flood all social media platforms with shots of every corner of their beautiful spaces.

Their mash-up of Chinese and Western dishes inspired by local ingredients makes it unabashedly a fusion café eatery that cooks up brave and unconventional dishes. Although a letdown, their Cucumber Salad (RM 15) Kyuri cucumber, green apple, semi dried tomato and lettuce with cumin vinaigrette seemed to cool down the hot weather and serves as a great appetizer. Otherwise let their sharing snack that has been getting all rave impress you with that lovely coating evenly enveloping juicy bites of flavoursome shrimp sauce marinated chicken. Cincalok Fried Chicken with summer salsa (RM 25) is accompanied by tomato and pineapple salsa as well as the house tomato chutney. 

2.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

Another highlight was a properly luxurious tea servings that came partnered with warm roasted chestnuts. Their tea is bucketloads of Chinese indulgence balanced with hippie and trendy pairing with their dishes. Not to worry if you are no tea connoisseur because menu displays description of their tea leaves. Shui Hsien tea (RM 18) meaning narcissus or water sprite is an Oolong tea from Mount Wuyi in Fujian Province, China with a heavy honey fragrance. Cheaper varieties are grown elsewhere in the province and have a burnt taste. Lapsang Souchong (RM 16), is the first black tea appeared in the tea history. This is also the original tea of Earl Grey. Tea is produced from Fujian Province of China. In addition to its smoky aroma, it gives a dried long aroma.

5.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

6.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

They are not pretentious with ingredients and uses some of the ingredients that represented the locals pretty well so you’d also see some familiar ingredients like kailan. Apart from slightly salty, what seemed to appear a little cloying looking is actually not at all a disaster; in contrary, this creamy stir fried kailan was uniquely enjoyable. 

7.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

8.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

Then when you talk about unique, I have already attempted several times to remake the Ulam stew Barley rice (RM 28). The fresh aroma from the ulam pesto balanced the custardy flavour from the blanket of shaved salted egg on top of the bed of barley and sautéed fresh squid with crispy dried shrimp so well that this one is like nothing I’ve ever seen anywhere else. But, I would probably swap the squid with cod fish if I am making this again. 

9.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

11.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

But then again, they are not all phenomenal when it comes to being authentic and ingenious. The Biang Biang inspired Noodle (RM 16) wasn’t impressive- not to me at least. Trying to challenge the taste bud with some sze chuan chili oil, the house made flat noodle is also tossed with toasted peanut and seasoned soy vinaigrette but it turned out rather boring actually. 

12.Chocha Foodstore @ Jalan Petaling, KL

 

Best to be pairing with some of their most outstanding dishes, the addition of wine on the menu worked out very well with these zingy Asian flavours. Helps to pace yourself for the ultimate dining experience. Otherwise, just enjoy the food and then order your cuppa joe while enjoying the semi open space with sunlight comes shinning through.

Go full Modern Korean @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Go full Modern Korean Fusion @ Solaris Mont Kiara

 

Solaris Mont Kiara is notoriously known to have bundled with plenty of Korean restaurants and cafes and with more interesting fusion dishes coming up, more contemporary Korean eatery are popping up and whether they sell with gimmick or not, it is always interesting to have fusion concept so long as they are delicious and not overpriced.

 

Go full in Solaris Mont Kiara is something I have in two minds whenever I passed by. At one point, they were almost dead and there were a period of time where a healthy crowd of patron is being spotted. There is only one way to find out what’s with the inconsistency so my friends and I visited to clear the doubts. The funky interiors themed with hippy menu are gaining pleasant impressions to begin with. There are interesting sandwiches, topokki, fried chicken, and aplenty with lots of cheese added to it. Clearly the cheese game is very strong here and it was all good right up till after we tasted our pick.

 

A bland and disappointed Sweet Potato Milkshake (RM 15.90) has very minimum aroma of sweet potato; almost nonexistent gave us a little skepticism to start off. Then the Go Full Korean Ham Sandwich with Fries (RM 22.90) with a thick patty of gourmet burger ham that was uninterestingly boring with no texture or tenderness but loaded with a thick scrap of melted cheese – probably the only selling point of the otherwise terribly composed sandwich.

 

1.Go full @ Solaris Mont Kiara

3.Go full @ Solaris Mont Kiara
4.Go full @ Solaris Mont Kiara

 

More pulling factor to target cheese lover is their Korean Fried Rice and clearly, once again cheese maybe the only attractive take on this fusion fried rice. Korean Kimchi Fried Rice with Cheese (RM 21.90) was a total let down when it comes to the texture of their rice. The grains were soft and mushy, a little greasy and boring.

 

5.Go full @ Solaris Mont Kiara
Go full Modern Korean Restaurant @ Solaris Mont Kiara

 

Go Full Honey Butter (RM 25.90) fried chicken managed to redeem their reputation with 8 pieces from the half chicken with quite a tasty crunch coating. But then again, Chicken House is not far away so if it’s fried chicken that I crave, I’ll walk a bit further for tastier and juicier bites.

Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

 

We already have our roll call of fusion restaurants but the recent addition really puts a unique spin to it. Kaiju at APW Bangsar is a contemporary no-nonsense Japanese-Thai fusion restaurant designed for both sharing tapas style and ala carte dishes. The menu is simple and classy with a short list of snack and main. Classy Japanaese ingredients are given some Thai treatment, in dishes like Tom Yum Udon (RM 26) and Yoyoki Tuna Tataki (RM 26) here with the later being my absolute favourite. Papaya salad that accompanies their very consistent and equal cut size of tuna pieces makes this quite an amazing starter or snack.

 

1.Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

 

Like the Tom Yum Udon, their Salmon Manow Nabe (RM 26) is also serving fish paste noodle. This one is perpetually kept at warm temperature on the mini stove and filled with aplenty of salmon, squid, mushroom, tofu, vegetables and Thai manow sauce. The sour from lime with a tinge of spicy spells Thai flavour where as the fresh ingredients speaks for the Japanese flavours. Most of their sea harvests are very well rendered even though the options are few.

4.Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

 

As a regular, dishes with seafood are very strongly recommended. I wouldn’t recommend anything without seafood in it but the creative Okinawa Bittergourd (RM 18) was interestingly added with cube duck. This bittergourd omelet dish that most of us are familiar with is instantly modernized with this clever touch. Alas, it wasn’t superb and is totally ok to skip this one unless if you have that bittergourd crave like I do. And since I am obsessed with the greens, the Sashimin Salad (RM 26) was also being requested. The order came and I am obviously happy with the custardy yolk in the egg on top of the mélange of vegetable, sashimi, cheese, lotus, and house salad sauce.

 

5.Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

7.Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

 

Kaiju has limited space to offer but with brisk service and that consistency in their food, this place remains on top of the to-go list for casual meals. Drinks are not too fancy but you’d love their alcohol and power drinks. Followers on my snapchat or instagram are probably already bored with my stories, seeing this so frequently. But if you have not seen them, I’ve saved some of what I’ve had for a quick look of what’s the rave about this place.

 


8.Kaiju Japanese x Thai fusion @ APW Bangsar

Impeccable service and innovative fusion dishes is a good reason to visit this place, but the long waiting line in such tiny but cosy space maybe the only challenge. Oh and when you are there, look up at the first-rate setting on the ceiling as well.

The Bacon and Brews @ Damansara Uptown

 

The Bacon and Brews at Damansara Uptown is the place for bacon lovers to enjoy a dining experience of incomparable creativity and effort. The Bacon and Brews desserts are considerably the cafe flagship. Ordering it could be a little tedious knowing it is going to be a huge sharing portion. Step one is to decide between the crispy waffle (3pcs), liege Belgium Waffle (3pcs), and what we have chosen here, the Shibuya Honey Toast. (Yes, this is the period of the time where I crave honey toast very much.) Step 2 isn’t easy too, but I saved all the trouble doing any thinking at all and went for the Signature Maple Bacon and Rum soak raisin. It said this is a must try serving of house made rum and raisin gelatin and candied bacon gelatin served with beautiful candied bacon, rum soak raisin, drilled with golden maple syrup, and topped with candied bacon bits, butter crumble and chocolate cake crumble.

3.The Bacon and Brews at Damansara Uptown

 

The main course at the Bacon and Brew is one to cherish as well. Prepared with plenty of creativity, we’ll see a flair of contemporary fusion like the Cheesy Kimchi Rice in spicy or extra spicy (RM 19.90 ) and Tonkatsu Seared Salmon 135g (RM 29.90 ) with sweet and sour Tonkatsu sauce on top of a bed of garlic mash and accompanied with toasted garlic herbs bread, as well as fresh salad.

 

4.Bacon and Brews at Damansara Uptown
5.Bacon and Brews at Damansara Uptown

 

The highlight is the this modern style of Kimchi rice served with melted mozzarella cheese, accompanied with quilted egg and grilled spicy marinated BBQ pork belly. The generous portion of melted mozzarella enclosed in the fried rice is making this a real excitement as we dig into the strings of pulling cheese.

 

6.Bacon and Brews at Damansara Uptown

 

Serving premium Gryphon Tea (RM 9.90) with wide choices of selection, tea lovers will easily find something decent to wash away relenting oil if there is any. And of course when there is Osmanthus, selecting my tea becomes easy.

Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

From Melbourne to Malaysia, Breakfast thieves in APW Bangsar is more than just a space with breakfast offerings. They remained the most searched café on food directories with compulsory waiting time for a seat. But what they lack in bigger space and more tables indoor or the duplicate of identical breakfast plates and consistent brew of a good cuppa, they make up for in crazy quality and flavour and of course the very pretty looking meal.

 

3.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

They remain a popular place to grab all day breakfast and brunch. Diners gravitate towards charming space that is well litted with plenty of natural lights from their large glass panels where they dig into pretty and colourful serving of satisfying meal.

 

1.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW
2.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

Though limited, the menu is both focused and thrilling, with new local flavours being introduced but starting with the hearty combination of breakfast goodness, the The Breakfast Chain (RM 27) is what I would recommend if you are going for a wholesome nutrition. It is a little challenging tapping around the sides of the egg to crack the shell beautiful enough to still look good on photo but hey, I think I nailed it. This makes a good dip for their cheddar soldier. With the strip of toasts, they are actually a good pair with those soft boiled egg dips.

 

6.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

Together with berry compote yogurt and granola, a pot of apple, strawberry, ginger almond crumble and side of soft- boiled eggs with cheddar soldiers, this one is superb if you like eating a lot of variety on a single serving plate.

 

4.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW
5.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

Another protein pack brunch meal is the Gipsy King (RM 29). Thick cubes of crisp garlic rosemary polenta bars with beetroot and citrus cured salmon trout cauliflower and parmesam puree, roasted oyster mushroom charred onion and the beautifully poached eggs. Lookout for that custardy flow of velvet yolk-they are the best.

 

7.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW
8.8.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW
9.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

And speaking of yolk, seek Mr. Terry Benedict (RM 29). The poached eggs are topped with yuzu hollandaise sauce. Along with 24 hours braised beef cheeks in green peppercorn with smoked paprika charred cauliflower, this toast is satisfyingly filling.

 

10.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

If there are still some space after that hefty portion, go for dessert-cum-main as a closure to this lovely meal. My French Lady (RM 26) should be a sharing meal if it’s a dessert but as a main, it would be fantastic to go with a cup of black coffee. This French toast is served with perfume strawberry and thyme, 55% salted dark chocolate soil, lemon curd, raspberry cream and mixed sesame shards.

 

11.Breakfast thieves @ Bangsar, APW

 

Espresso based beverages range between RM 7- RM 11, cold press juices generally cost RM 13 and tea (gryphon tea) are sold at RM 10.

Croutons By Gourmet Seductions @ Sri Kembangan

 

Croutons by Gourmet Seductions at Sri Kembangan is what generally makes a great dining experience. And it isn’t about white tablecloths, pompous descriptions or any of those snooty service. Instead it’s the food that is astonishing, and at the same time inspiring whilst rendering the ultimate comfort of delicious offering.

 

1.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan

 

Starting the meal with the Pumpkin and Ginger Soup(RM 11.90), this pureed pumpkin Broth infused with ginger is comforting and served family style with lovely and quality ingredients- the same you would use to stir up a good bowl of pumpkin soup for your family. Followed by the very fresh herbs and tossed with parmesan cheese, sweet cherry tomatoes, and balsamic vinaigrette. Aphrodisiac (RM 14.90) is inescapably the salad to go for when you are a big fan of rocket leaves.

 

2.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan

Next is the beautifully presented plate of well cooked fillet of salmon. The Salmon Teriyaki beautifully lying on Sparta salad and accompanied with herby butter rice and standing wedges of fresh tomatoes. The combination is amazing with a wholesome combination of all proteins and carbohydrates.

 

3.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan

 

The fillet is flexible, so ask for it to cook to your palate (I strongly recommend medium well). That Greek salad beneath the fish is the amazing element that is simple but never taken lightly when the chef is prepping it.

 

4.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan
5.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan

 

Want your meal a little more solid? Their Roast Chicken is rather astonishing with aroma of herbs and those lovely cuts of fries. A hearty quarter chicken done very perfectly juicy and tender when cutting it through was very memorable indeed. It is something I would repeat with no doubt at all.

 

6.Croutons by Gourmet Seduction @ Sri Kembangan

Go healthy with their Banana Smoothie and you’ll find this delicious and at the same time nutritionally amazing for fitness enthusiast. Sipping their yummy treat was easy. Or, have your caffeine fixed with their selection of espresso based beverages.

The restaurant is elevating itself with the use of fresh produce and clever execution of presentations on their dishes. Gourmet eateries are often either overpriced or inhabiting uninspiring environs. Croutons can instantly perk up as an instant winner within this neighbourhood but is absolutely authentic yet contemporary with such decent offerings. The dishes are very instagramable too.

Cafe 360 @ Dragon Center, Sham Shui Po Kowloon (Hong Kong)

 

Just like the name suggests, Café 360 is all round up serving a jumble of fancy mains characterized by touches and influences from all over the world, as well as desserts and an extensive beverages that tickles the fancy of mainly the younger and hippie crowd in the Dragon Center Mall in Sam Sui Po, Hong Kong. Serving typical mix and variety of Asian and influence of American classic, the menu is broad with plenty of set deals at alluring prices.

What happens when fast serving food meets seafood? Expect your seafood being deep fried into plenty of creative ways to flatter the dish in a very comforting way. Pan omurice with Shrimp Cutlet in Japanese Sesame Sauce or the Hamburger with Jumbo Deep Fried Fillet, French Fries and Salad for any seafood lovers.

Asian staple beneath a blanket of soft and fluffy egg omelet with crispy shrimp cutlet, and drizzled with lovely goma dressing.

Jumbo sized fish burger

 

If not, then we go with the barn options with Roasted Spring Chicken (Half) with Cheese and Mushrooms, served with Belgian Waffle, Sunny-side up, with French Fries and Salad. Otherwise there is the Slow cooked Spring Chicken (half) with Lemon and French Fries. The first has much variety on the platter, but the fancy combination didn’t quite appeal to me. On the other hand, the later was a lot simpler and had the chicken taking center stage with texture that is a lot juicier.

Pasta in soup is apparently a popular breakfast in traditional Hong Kong cafes along side with those thick toast and milk tea. It is such a local staple that it is common to also see cafes serving it and here it is accompanied with a slab of juicy pork chop on a bed of cabbages. Fusilli in Italian Organic Tomato Soup with Pork Chop Cutlet here seems to have really appeal to the locals- quite a few tables were having this when I was there.

As interesting as it is, they even have Pizza with Parma Ham and Arugula and Porcini Rice with Abalone & Chicken in Stone Pot. And as weird as this diversity is, their London All Day serves a platter with French croissant, deep fried jumbo fish fillet, scrambled eggs, chipolata, honey ham, wild mushroom, hash brown, and salad.

If you are still feeling peckish after those large serving of mains, then it is ideal to enjoy sweet treats with pretty looking presentation and those beautiful and fancy looking toppings also gives you the unobstructed taste to the huge bed of Belgium Waffle. Otherwise, they have cakes and macaroons for the sweet tooth.

The hustle bustle within the mall’s kiosk shops and crowd have no effect on the dining experience, inside the café was designed in such that it is cleverly replete with refined dividers from Korea, partitioned off into a series of private dining corners. And like most diners in Hong Kong, the menu throws plenty of set meals with prices inclusive some sides and a drink to go with the meal to help customers make choices from the otherwise intimidating list from their freakishly large menu.

B.bap Korean Bistro’s Afternoon Delight at Avenue K

 

Being a contemporary Korean bistro, B.bap at Avenue K is that latest addition in the mall that offers not only popular Korean dishes we are all familiar with, but also specialties with local flavours infused for customers who are seeking quick and delicious meals. And introducing their Afternoon Delight for 2 pax at RM 49.90 nett, a three tier delicate bites of both sweet and savoury quirky bites is available at 3pm-6pm daily.

Afternoon tea is the ultimate indulgence, and it doesn’t get much better than the way it se served fusion Korean style. Like the classic post-lunch, pre-dinner treat; this funky and modern Korean Bistro also delivers friendly services with unique petite items. On the menu, the Korean street food dominates the savoury selections, showcasing Korean dumpling, Kimbab, and Kimchi rice ball.

Sweet treats were not too bold and beautiful but was fancy enough to please the sweet tooth. The tiers would have their menu playing around choices like shaved ice with fruits or churros with chili chocolate. Along with mochi and egg tart or gula Melaka kuih bahulu and more; the sweets treats would satiate those in love with desserts.

Despite simple and plain-looking, the bites on the tiers are consist Korean flavours with each item painstakingly created to delight the fan of Korean food culture and those who fancy afternoon tea with a difference. However, I am a bigger fan of a more traditional and classy afternoon tea with sandwich bites, scones and clotted cream with perhaps a glass of champagne and s6me old fashioned sweets. But the varieties they have on their afternoon tea set was indeed alluring.

Madame Waffle’s Salted Egg Yolk Waffle

 

Food trends don’t end under any circumstances and the recent salted egg yolk craze are now in Madame Waffle. From Asian dishes like custard buns to the western delights like croissants; and now waffle, the trend still currently ongoing and picking up fast. Salted egg yolk has really proven its capability to blend with any food and now it’s gotten to waffles but whether or not this hybrid is worthy of the calories? Here is what we are about to find out.

 

1.Madame Waffle’s Salted Egg Yolk Waffle

 

When I was told there is salted egg yolk waffle with salted egg yolk ice cream, I’m thinking no way. Then I found out its real, Madame Waffle launched their own rendition of the coveted sauce- one that simple goes well with everything and anything bizarre, is the latest addition to this renown waffle joint. Salted Egg Yolk Waffle here will soon launch many a gushing Instagram post not only with their pretty plating, but the hypnotising thick golden yellow custard that escorts. Salted egg yolk wasn’t intense but was prominently obvious to many and at the same time inconspicuous to salted egg yolk devotee.

 

2.Madame Waffle’s Salted Egg Yolk Waffle

 

And get ready for the fear factor challenge (or a dive into paradise if you are huge durian fan) when the Musang Durian Crème Brulee is served right before your eyes. Or, you can smell it as it is being prepared. You would find a generous lump of durian Brulee, so a thin crusty crystallised sugar layer would crack to have a medley texture of both creamy luscious and crackling crisp.

 

3.Madame Waffle’s Salted Egg Yolk Waffle

 

The spotlight must be their Matcha Signature . Hands down and hats off such consistency in the lovely texture – light but never too airy or dense in anyway. Tiramisu Waffle didn’t appeal to me, only because I am not a fan of tiramisu. But, know that they pull things off with waffles alone (Matcha and Cinnamon Classic Waffles) , satisfying bites without toppings are always a good choice

Let’s not forget the lovely flavour of those Ferrero Rocher Delight, every chocolate fan would approve this. Fruits topping balances the bitter sweet of chocolate and even though not as generous, the toppings blends beautifully both on the plate, and on the palate.

Beverage menu offers a medley of creativity with things like Passionfruit Mint Soda, Ice Matcha Blended,Lemonade Soda, and caffeine drinks. Once again, barista Feng was present so naturally coffee is a must.
