Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR), the specialty coffee roaster, academy and cafe which originates from Singapore, launched its all-new menu that features a fresh selection of artfully crafted comfort fare, elevated and redefined….
Chai Latte is one of their specialty recipe from their kitchen.
Flat White was good, less milk and more coffee taste. Flat White @ RM 12
Prices may be a little steep but justifiably so as only premium ingredients are used. Service is impeccable and my only regret is that I am limited by my tummy and my wallet.
David's have done it very nicely, it was easy to bite into and the grilled exterior complemented the fleshy inside very well. And marinating with a Ras el hanout, spice mix have made it all the better - we slowly savoured it bite by bite. Hah! even looking at this photo again has made me drool!
Cafe David has a good customers mixture of local residents and those who comes from both nearby and far places. It does offer good quality and tasty food, an...
The pho soup was very flavorful, with lime juice squeeze into soup, it brought more flavor out from the soup. Very appetizing and can’t stop drinking it with the rice noodle. Didn’t feel thirsty after the meal (hear say indicator whether excessive MSG was used 🙂 ). The beef slices were tender even though it were well done.
Sauteed Sliced Lamb with lemongrass, onions & crispy spring roll RM18.90 The lamb was really nicely sauteed, it was fragrant and flavourful without overpowering the natural flavour of the lamb, but still keeping the natural flavour at a minimum, so the overall olfactory experience was above satisfactory.
Grilled Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi tastes delicious. The sauce has a good kick of spicy in it and all the ingredients goes well together. However, my boyfriend commented that the chicken tastes frozen to him. Grilled Lemongrass Chicken Banh Mi @ RM 12.90
I can surf or work here all day as outside is a little bit more lush greeen view than most Cafe in this area, plus parking is free within the private compounds of the facility.
With absolutely free-and-easy parking, and very near to TTDI, the window seats are very relaxing and comfortable for few hours of relaxing or working with your notebook.
Banana Fritters, 11 ringgit. I started of with some yummy banana fritters. This was yummy. Crispy and crunchy on the outside and soft, moist on the inside. It had just the right amount of sweetness. Loved it. It certainly would make an awesome dish for tea time.
Verdict: I like their waffles, well prepared with slightly crisp on the outer and dense on the inner. Portion was big and I’m eyeing on their delectable looking dessert offerings!
I think the sweet waffles were more successful and I definitely preferred the sweet ones over the savoury one that we tried. Also, I think I'll do without the add-on condiments (except maybe the fresh fruits) if there's a next time. If I had to choose again, I'd stick to a flavoured waffle with just a side of butter and maple syrup...and nothing else. Although I've only tried the waffles and some snacks, it didn't excite my palate enough to say I want to try more. Their signature savoury waffle may be called Moo Moo.....but I think I'll just moo...ve on along and graze somewhere else instead! Perhaps their new menu of hot food will fare better but I didn't try any, so I wouldn't be able to offer any insight into that.
If you are a great fan of waffles, you will be definitely be amazed with Chequers' waffles inspired creations of their chefs. Savours flavours of every kind from sweet to savoury with contrasting textures or flavours to please your senses. For me, I fell in love with their desserts; their waffle is great-tasting, light and crisp while the ice cream is of premium grade so tasty and creamy. Bon Appetite!
The Baked Shell-Less Escargot is one of my favourites here. The escargots are just as nice as it is and they are baked till perfection with the garlic butter sauce. They are beautifully done which makes it to be one of our favourite place for some escargot.
Overall, i think they are priced very well, and a must visit.
The Deep-fried Brie Cheese Balls were full of rich creamy cheesy goodness. I particularly loved the sweet red onion ginger chutney served as it cuts through some of the richness of brie.
Tis the Season of King Of Fruits is in Malaysia again at this time of the year! There's no better time than now to come and indulge to satisfy your durian craving at Durian King TTDI for some of the best durians in town.
This where the actual place to satisfy my cravings for this sinfully sweet and good smelly fruit , Durian King TTDI promise the Quality been served to all their customer and The Place had people comes from around the globe tasting the wonders of creamy Durian here . Whereas the shelves at Durian King TTDI were nearly bare , here the displays overflowed into piles of Musang King .
Food is pretty good, but pretty expensive as well (average RM 50 per dish)
Lamb Fried Rice with Curried Marrow Bones, 36 ringgit. Ooooooo Yessssss ! Still as delicious, mouth wateringly delicious. It still gets my tongue wagging. You’d get a plate of flavorful, spiced Basmati rice with cashews, fried garlic and onions, generous portions of chewy mini pieces of lamb meat scattered all over with papadoms and gravy filled bone marrow and some yogurt + shallots on the side. This is sooo worth giving a go. Each spoonful of this fried rice was soooo yummy, I just couldnt stop. I ate and ate and literally left the place squeky clean, spotless. It was everything I ever wanted when I am imagining kambing fried rice. Certainly coming back for more.
Reasons to visit: comfort food in a casual setting; friendly service; fabulous platters such as the Dips & Spreads are perfect for sharing over a few drinks with friends; Norwegian Salmon with Honey Lemon Soy; Lamb Fried Rice with Curried Marrow Bones.
In the list, I decided to order the weird one which is Onde Onde Coissant Doughnut. It is a bit unique where it had a slight chewy texture as the filling base and the coissant is slightly crips outside. Not too bad though.
Dotty’s Pastries & Coffee TTDI Kuala Lumpur made a name for themselves with salted egg yolk cronut – the croissant x doughnut hybrid pastry filled with irresistible salted egg yolk sauce, along with a long list of delectable treats that we don’t mind having it for either breakfast, lunch, teatime or dinner.
Dotty's have been capturing the hearts of many ever since they launched their famous salted egg yolk cronut. If you have not heard of one, a cronut is basically a kind of croissant-doughnut pastry invented by a pastry chef in NYC
Grilled Pesto Chicken Sandwich, 18 ringgit The sandwich was delicious and I don’t know if you noticed – it was huge, yawwww. Literally a case of “I can eat half now and the rest later” situation. Basically, you’d get a large piece of Ciabatta bread with pesto + grilled chicken + tomatoes + cheese. It was surprisingly delicious. Why surprising? because simply judging from the size of the bread to filling ratio, it did not seem to match. However, upon tasting it, it tasted awesome. You’d be able to taste the pesto and grilled chicken just fine despite the thickness of the bread.
I have had my share of German Meatloaf Recipes in Waldorf, Germany whenever I had work assignment over there. And it really had been such a long time since having that last taste of German Meatloaf.
Der Backmeister known for its Artisan German bakery and coffee shop that serves traditional and healthy bread, one of its kind; perhaps not just in TTDI but maybe the country.
Interestingly the "凯撒薄卷 Ceaser Wrap" is reported as 689 kcal, and all of the items in the menu comes with caloric counts! with a somewhat positive experience at least on the Ceaser Wrap, looking forward to try out its other offering in their menu!
While doing my nasi lemak eating rounds, I came to know about the nasi lemak wrap by Goodness Greens TTDI. I was intrigued and had wanted to try it ASAP but I got distracted by work and trips. Well, last week I finally sank my teeth into one and boy, the wrap was delicious! On the plus side, it was filling (it was 2 meals for me!) for the price and healthy too. Just remember to go easy on the sambal since that’s where most of the oil comes from.
Big Breakfast @ RM 26 – Two eggs used are kampung eggs (sunny side up/ scramble/ soft boiled) Grilled chicken sausage, grilled tofu, roasted baby potatoes, sauteed trio myshrooms, (shiitake, white buttons, eryngii) with high fibre bread butter served with mini salad. Both of these are just simple and great to pair with their juices.
Tuesday, 29 November 2016 Thursdvys @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail My morning class was cancelled, SO GOOOD!!! The lazy us decided to have tasty breakfast before our afternoon class. We choose Thursdvys as it is located along our way to college. Thursdvys is located at TTDI, Kuala Lumpur (Next to Torii). We were greeted upon entering and the staff seated us in the 2pax table. Once seated, she gave us the menu to browse through. You have to order and pay at the counter. I ordered Babas Breakfast Set and Aglio Olio Pasta. A couple of people occupied the cafe when we arrived at 12pm but it was filling up for lunch. The ambiance of the cafe was good, bright and welcoming. They have both indoor and outdoor seating areas for the customer. Breakfast set is served with complimentary coffee/ tea. Flat White was milky and velvety, it's like drinking a milk coffee. Yummy!! Aglio Olio Pasta was super duper yummy. A lovely combination of fresh garlic, shallots, parsley, capsicum, beef bacon, prawns tossed in olive oil. A simple yet delicious dish. Breakfast set is served with Scramble Egg, Beef Bacon, Toast, Sautéed Mushroom, Hash Brown, Tomato and Beans. The scramble egg was creamy and fluffy, beef bacon was good and the mushroom was fresh and flavourful. For me, everything in the place was perfect. Breakfast set @ RM 26 Overall, it was a perfect breakfast for us. Super delicious foods, pleasant service and lovely environment. What can I ask for more? It's just perfect for me. Second visit? A BIG YES for me!!
Thursdvys is one of a earlier joint cafe that make a good hit to then neighborhood. I visited this place last year. Pretty cool place to hang out as it feels like a celebrity joint where you can see quite number of high profile cafe hoppers. I guess, maybe during when I was there at the right timing.
A big slice of cheesecake! The combination of creamy and lusciously rich body with buttery crumble base indeed a very sinful indulgence. The drizzles of salted caramel and Mars chocolate cubes certainly a delightful addition to the overall cake.
Love the bread, but dine in menu is average I think. Pizza is good.
This was really good. The outer layer was coated with sweetened nuts and the inner layer was a dense cake. If you are a Tiramisu lover like me, you’d love this dessert.
Reasons to visit Kenny Hills Bakers, The Greens, TTDI: an incredible range of expertly made baked goods; lovely semi-alfresco patio as well as a stylish air-conditioned interior; all-day breakfast; hearty, wholesome recipes.
The Papperdelle Umami XL (RM38.00) on the other hand, had a whole load of fantastic flavors. Pardon me, I'm raving about black truffles again. The papperdelle had perfect folds - not too chewy; not too thick, with a good sprinkle of salted kombu (or known as kelp - I googled). This dish may look simple, with just a handful of ingredients, but the execution - the tiny details, shined in this dish.
Reasons to visit Bref TTDI: Head Chef Lim Wei Han’s new four-course seasonal menu, which captures all the artistry you’d expect from a Darren Chin restaurant, in a comfortable space for memory-making.
[Main]- Australian grass-fed rib eye steak au poivre (280-300gms) (RM 120.00) An Australian grass-fed rib eye steak with roasted celeriac cream, buttered kale. To me, this dish is just "so-so", no Wow factor. Maybe an aged Wagyu can impress me. The size is just right for two pax, but if you are a bodybuilder, the portion is awesome for your gains.
Verdict: Perhaps we’d ordered the wrong dishes, our dining experience at The Brew House was merely satisfying but I really like the salted egg fish skin and highly recommend it.
For the final snack, I had the Porky Platter (Rm25.80). This dish consist of sliders with luncheon meat and char grilled pork, sticky ribs and roast pork. For someone who want to sample four different type of pork, this is for you. I enjoyed the sticky ribs and roast pork the most. Although the roast pork skin is not super crispy but I think it is passable for my own standard.
The Brew House 最近成了我非常爱去的地方；不管是聚餐，还是小酌，携老还是带幼，这里都非常适合。
Verdict: Both Prawn Mee & Char Kueh Teow are worth a try but be warned that you may have to wait for table for both weekdays (office crowds) and weekends.
The standard size ckt at MYR 6 nett is a small enough portion for me
Char Kway Teow - MYR 6 nett. I like it because it is those dry type and there is a lot of eggs and beansprout in it. Blood cockles can be added for a fee.
Reasons to visit Foo Foo Fine Desserts: Stellar desserts in a cosy and peaceful environment; excellent ice cream with a velvety texture and unique flavours; a nice additional service of dessert wine to complete the experience.
Taste:10/10(Excellent. I satisfied with the apple strudel here. The presentation of the apple strudel is also great as it shaped like a small purse. The filling of home cooked apple taste awesome. And pairing with black pepper mango ice-cream is a perfect combination. I was a bit skeptical when ordering this dessert but it turn out to be among the best dessert I ever tasted. The ice cream texture is firm and full of flavor).
Verdict: Amazing desserts that delights your senses! Great ambience with relaxing and homey furnitures. Great for gathering. Do note that they do regularly update their menu so be sure to check with their staff about the dessert availability Must Try: Red Wine Poached Pear, Strawberry Tart, Mango & Lychee Ice cream Slice, Tahini Chocolate mousse
Overall, we loved the food and the pricing is reasonable if you compare to other similar restaurants located in this part of Klang Valley. Maybe it is time for us to revisit Topshelf TTDI French Restaurant again?
Overall, the food is good and unpretentious like I mentioned earlier. I would say its quite a suitable place for birthdays and gathering if you’re looking for somewhere casual and not upscale. Portion sizes were good as well and price point not too high!
Taste:9/10(Delicious. I like two of their dishes the most. The pan seared salmon belly and mushroom soup with truffle. Both are well done and taste very good. As for the crispy aromatic duck, its not that crispy but the meat is tender. Taste wise is good with combination with the sauce and vegetables. The dessert of dark chocolate mousse is creative and well thought).
Verdict: Overall, the food was pretty satisfying, scored well in terms of flavours and presentation. But the price was a bit on higher side (for my standard) and the service can be a little prompter.
Pork 2 Ways was delicious. I’m not a meat lover but this is exceptional. Pork 2 Ways @ RM 40
2ND Floor Kitchen & Bar at TTDI, Kuala Lumpur holds the nuances of a hipster cafe for relaxing brunch during the day; yet provides an elegant, welcoming ambience of a restaurant bar for intimate, casual dining in the evening.
Located at the upper floor at the quieter area of TTDI- which was good as parking was not as dreadful as the adjacent one. The café setting was simple and cozy, decently spacious with laid back vibes.
[Halal] Our friend raved about the Chipotle Grilled Cheese Toast (RM22) here and we had to agree. Gooey cheese slapped between two sourdough slices is super satisfying comfort food. The sourdough is toasted perfectly to yield crusty sides with a nice, soft and warm middle.
Grilled Chicken Pesto Sandwich with Fries, 28 ringgit If you are a fan of pesto like I am, you’d fall in love with this dish. The sourdough bread (made in house) had a crispy outer layer and yet, buttery and warm on the inside. It was somewhat green in color, which I assume to be because they infused some pesto into it? Besides the bread and the pesto in it, there was a generous portion/layer of pesto with mozzarella cheese + sun dried tomatoes and grilled chicken pieces. Biting into it was simply heaven. Seriously. Lots of pesto, lots of cheese – those two are my favorites. Add in some chicken and I am sold.
