MCO had made alot of business evolve. Much later on the phase 4 of MCO, starting to see a few of my favourite restaurant start to do delivery (read here past experience). Then saw Roost at Bangsar (sit right above used to be corner unit of Chawan, Bangsar) having a delivery menu for limited period of time. I got excited and look through their menu. Roost in Bangsar, KL is actually one of a very few restaurants that work with local farmers or using local fresh ingredients to prep on food.

farm to table

also they are actually quite generous, for first 10km is free delivery. So for my order I just top up just a little bit. As look at the  menu, we were quite greedy and for 3 pax we order a set for 4 @ RM 250.

comes with :

  1. Falafel with Salted Yogurt & Coriander
  2. Hummus & Kalamata Olives
  3. Mushroom Truffle Arancini (one of their signature item)
  4. Pumpkin Ravioli with Spinach & Almond
  5. Chicken Schnitzel with Cauliflower Rice & Tomato Jam
  6. Snapper with Borlotti Beans
  7. Braised Spanish Beef Cheeks with Mash Potato
  8. Dark Chocolate Gateau with nuts
  9. Baked Local Figs with Cream Cheese (fig was not fresh that day, I opted for dark chocolate). All their dishes are very generous with ingredients.

local ingredients

We were too ambitious, as it was too much for us. A set for 4 is more like for 5 pax easily.

Pumpkin Ravioli with Spinach & Almond is one of the main highlight in the list. Creamy to my liking as pumkin taste is quite prominent. Ravioli not too thick, yet soft and just perfect in size. Easily there are 5-6 medium size ravioli in it. I dip it with their fresh bread. Taste pretty good too as I add in a huge slab of butter myself.

Falafel with Salted Yogurt & Coriander is done to perfection. The spices and the softness of the filling in it yet dipping with the clear sour salted yogurt and coriander gives the fresh flavour it needs. a well balance entry.

The simplest way to enjoy hummus is with their chef made bread. A big dip on the top and just put into your mouth.

Roost Bangsar (7)

Chicken Schnitzel with Cauliflower Rice & Tomato Jam Sort of healthy kind of dish but the suprise of this dish is when you squeeze the lemon onto pf the chicken schnitzel then you dip it with their tomato jam. A whole new of flavour. Love it.

This dish Braised Spanish Beef Cheeks with Mash Potato is like a dish that near melts in your mouth. The beef cheeks is so soft and juicy. Mash potato is creamy, light and airy. A little salty for my liking but did feed back to the restaurant, it could also perhaps, if not have been cooking quite a while at home where i am using a little of brown sugar and pinch of salt, and when comes a heavy flavour gives you a notch. Been a while to enjoy such a strong flavour.

I guess our palate are healthy now.

Mushroom Truffle Arancini – is one of their signature entree dish.

Roost Bangsar (12)

The first dish that we finish is Snapper with Borlotti Beans. Fish is fresh, and fried to just nice. A sea of beans that keeps you digging in especially with bread.

Got a complimentary chocolate cookie with seasalt. We felt that if this is microwave for 5 second then top a scoop of ice cream, then it is perfecto!

a meal that we are truely satisfied after a long MCO lock in.

AS the finale is as good as in the outlet. I forgot to put the dessert in my fridge as when comes to desert only realise it is melting. Their dessert so far never disappoint. A perfect ending. Soft, creamy chocolate cake, with pistachio nuts and a bed of chocolate soil is a great combination.

I guess that now desert franchise industry is mushrooming every where and so fast with all those Taiwanese and Hong Kong brand flooding in. One of the latest desert shop from Hong Kong that I heard from my friends that just open its door not that long is this Tong Pak Fu. It is quite a well known brand in Hong Kong and now it had arrive in Malaysia.

Tong Pak Fu (1)

I would say on weekdays is pretty pack with people. .

Tong Pak Fu (2)

A very simple desert shop decoration . .

Tong Pak Fu (3)

Its a self service shop, whereby you have to come to the counter and order your desert then they will serve it to you on your table ..

Tong Pak Fu (4)

You will be pampered with their huge selection of desert that is available and nearly all looks good. . Just not to be greedy, so we pick some of their recommended desert to start off with . .

Tong Pak Fu (5)

Chilled Mango Sago Creme with Pamelo @ RM 7.80

When we taste the mango, we sure know that its not a local mango, as for local mango it wont taste so so sweet and flipping back the menu only know that its imported mango’s from Philipines. Taste not too creamy, which both of the taste of sour pamelo and sweet mango paired up very well . ..

Tong Pak Fu (6)

Trecka Durian Snow Ice @ RM 14.80

For shave ice desert, especially on durian flavor, I would say this is the super star of the night, what makes us order this is when we enter the shop we smell very strong durian and its very aromatic and we instantly flip into the menu to search for this flavour and they do have it. We ordered it then.

A superb desert especially for durian lovers, that it taste exactly like eating the durian flesh itself, very strong near to D24 that kind of taste, not too sweet and we just cant stop eating it. Highly Recommended for Durian lovers!

Tong Pak Fu (7)

Chocolate Lava Cake with vanilla Ice-Cream @ RM 12.80

Tong Pak Fu (8)

Based on our observation, this is one of the item that in house crowd mostly order, and we did not order wrong. . The last time I ate this kind of choco lava desert was when I was in Melb under one of my fav shop, Max Brenner . . Besides that, now this is one of the similiar taste that once cut cake then the chocolate just ooze out  . . . I might be too sweet for me, but if eat along with the ice cream is just nice. perfect for choco lovers.

Overall, this shop certainly stands out compare with other available shops in Malaysia.

Wine dinner is one of my task to achieve as a foodie and I am glad to be invited to join for this lovely evening wine dinner at Marche Restaurant in Reinassance Hotel.

One thing that came into my mind was I have been constantly reading 3iLing blog’s, knowing she is a wine lover or I can say she really know how to enjoy her life or release stress in a way but comes to a point that if you are looking for a nice place with wine to hang out, her blog would be great to check it out. Although I am still new in writting this but its a great challenge~
