Our everlasting festive CNY mood has finally settled down a bit & it’s time to get back to real business and routines.
Sorry for being so inactive for a week at blogsphere as the hibernation level rises thanks to the many good Chinese food during Chinese New Year!
Well adjourning to the topic of Valentine……
As of 2013, this would be our ONE DOZEN YEARS of celebrating Valentine’s together!
Our memories were vivid when we talk about over last year’s Valentine dinner at Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 @ Taman Desa. Bathed with sweats & smoke. Ooolala.
To beat people congestions during dinner & to avoid dining in restaurants that mostly offer Valentine Set Menu with not much choices that we really love, the hubby suggested a brunch instead.
And of course, a place that serves coffee so that he could catch his dose in great comfort.
We heard so much about Troika but have yet to set our feet there. Here we are, on Valentine’s Day 🙂 We were like having a private brunch for 2 as we were their first customer of the day. Relaxing and calm Valentine!
We really love their interior. How should we elaborate? I thought it was breathtakingly stunning in a way that it reflects a stylish mood. The furnitures that matched the ambiance has a chic feature that complemented well with a modern retro touch. And the glass windows that brings in natural sunlight, the best effect for pictures! They even own a loft bar upstairs which would be great for private tittle tattles. Acme would be one of the stylish hit in KL.
Pretty casier counter that would brighten your day!
Desserts up for grabs! Burp *oops pardon me*
Coffee – an exquisite exercise in perfection
We would say the description above applied to Acme’s coffee machine 🙂
What a classic piece!
Since it was Valentine’s Day, the barista decided to create the latte art that fits the day theme. It was indeed very skillful & pretty though we thought the art was a little more mature than Butter & Beans @ Seventeen. Haha. Love them lots!
Coffee wise, it was not the best in town as we personally thought they did not bring out the aroma enough though it was velvety & smooth.
We would still prefer Coffee Societe & Coffee Stain.
Cappuccino – RM13
Flat White – RM15
Tuna Melt Sandwich – RM25
Tuna, capers, peppers, on sourdough bread with Gruyere & mozzarella toasted cheese
Very flavoursome, wholesome & cheesy! Love the salsa sides to bits!
Smoked Duck Breast Pasta – RM35
Spaghetti carbonara with smoked duck breast topped with parmesan
A rich share of carbs & proteins that satisfied our appetite to the brim! Just realized we ordered 2 very cheesy portion of mains but we didn’t care as both were equally great.
Being Time Out KL’s Best New Restaurant 2012. Great contender for food but not for coffee yet 🙂
Thank you for being such a sweet Valentine as always!
Cheers to a dozen years of Valentine & many more ahead!
