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.

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.

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.

Was over on a weekend that I join KetchUp for their cafe hopping series at Bangsar. The four cafe that I check out on that day are Pulp, Roost, Hanbing and Ashley by Living Food.

What about Ketchup?

Great times, here’s looking forward to what KetchUp has in store soon. For now, do check out their website at www.ketchup.com.my as well as their Facebook page.

For the first stop, we head one of the earliest coffee trend where they have also make a huge impact in the coffee scene in KL is this :

  1. PULP by Papa Palheta

KetchUp's (1)

2. Roost at Bangsar

KetchUp's (7)

This is one of a restaurant that have made it into my list for next upcoming restaurant to try as I love their concept where they serve everything fresh from Farm to tables. This concept have been widely used by many chef in Australia and it is great to see now Malaysian scene is picking it up and of course there are challenges in sourcing them.

KetchUp's (8)

It is a space also well know to cater for private functions where then you gave them a budget and they can customize a special menu for you.

Cozy place to be and their food presentation is simple and nice. Quality of food where you can expect your mains is ranging from RM 17-RM80 which I think is quite reasonable. Finally, I have found the best Panna Cotta in KL where I got so influence by those chef in cooking and reality shows that panna cotta must be wobbly. It is so soft, slight creamy and fragrant. (a must try)

For healthy food option, I love Ashley’s concept on how they run this restaurant with alot of careful thoughts in it, where to cater healthy food for quite a niche market. Every ingredient that they use are all near premium qualities where to cook the flavours out along with chef special.

Their quinoa sushi rolls is awesome, where it is healthy yet get to enjoy Japanese taste in it. It is another restaurant that worth to explore as everything is made in that kitchen.
