Acme Bar & Coffee (ABC) @ Troika, KL
How I found out this place is when I was browsing thru TimeoutKL and I saw a visual that attracted me to click on it and in my thought, hmmmm . . .since when we have such a nice cafe and found out that its Acme Bar & Coffee which is a new restaurant that open its door to public since last December 2011. This cafe is located under a very high end condo at KL known as The Troika that have a great modern architecture design on the building. Its hard to miss on the location. The place also host some retailing and offices units.
Well, AcmeBar & Coffee or known as ABC is well situated on the ground floor of this building.
I just love the ambiance of the place that offer a very New York kind of concept. .
As you enter the cafe, you will be greeted by their well train friendly staff and will seat you accordingly. .
As you went in, the interior design itself will blow your mind away . .
Even they have a dining place that looks like you are dining in an little ally space and these area are expose to all natural light which makes it a perfect place to be seated if you plan to take nice picture of on the food or friends. As it was fully occupied then we were seated in another comfy section.
We choose to be seated on the comfy sofa area that overlook on the wine rack and coffee bar counter.
Just love their classic coffee machine that makes me think that I have seen that some where only I remembered that its something that looks alike to the movie Green Hornet that Jay Chou acted along with a coffee machine to brew coffee for his boss. I am just as amaze with this coffee machine.
Cannot deny that the barista is well train to brew on the coffee with smooth froth as what I was train up last time. Just only that the price of the coffee restrict me from ordering one. A simple latte that cost RM15 which I felt that not worth it.
Menu are pretty simple from late breakfast to ala cart menu all in one.
As you were seated along, every table will be offered a complimentary bottle of water. One of the thing we found out that the glass have some fishy smell as my friends wasnt aware on that until I told them. I guess either they used dish washer or just mix along with something else while washing along.
When I saw other blogger blog about this place, their Cake counter certainly attracted me the most with all the tempting cakes being on display and what we think of it is, this place must have stayed super clean that to ensure no flies are coming in cuz its left expose open.
As I am taking picture from this distance, I can smell nice aroma trailing on my nose which is the Cempedak Cake.
We arrive here pretty late in the noon and yet still decided to try out their late breakfast so we kick start off with Salmon Mousse @ RM 19
The first dish really kick start our day as the salmon mousse act like a jam for the bread to spread it and the taste is just absolute perfect , smooth and aromatic with their own home made toast bread .. - Recommended!
Next to opt for healthy option my friend went along with Cheeze Salad @ RM 29. When we see these plate wondering where are all the cheeze.
Till we cut it only realise that the deep fried ball is actually cheeze. The salad is dress along with thin slice green apple and season pear which I thought it was salmon chunks. Well, this dish wasnt finish by my friend as its quite plain and nothing to shout about ..
and here come mine Asparagus and Duck Bacon @ RM 19 comes with 2 sunny side up, toast bread and duck bacon chunks.
AFter eating finish only I realise that the plates are different and makes the whole thing become ABC. . .nice~
A slice of cake that tempted me to try is this Cempedak Cake @ RM 15, that have pandan sponge cake in between the layer. The cake smells very nice and aromatic, as we find that the pandan cake if it was done more sponge and not so solid a bit more dry would be perfect and the cempedak taste is less sweet then it would have been a perfect piece of cake.
If you are looking for a place to dine with perfect ambiance, this place is certainly a good place to be or chill, and if you are talking about the food its not too bad as I think its way overprice, besides that the service is good! Total bill came up to RM 95.10 as I find that I can find better food for that kind of price.
