Had not been to Publika for quite a while and decided to check out some blogs on what is the latest eatery around this area. A few pop out and this sure do tempt me with its ambiance and of course by the name which is familiar to me, Cielo Dolci, that is well known for one of their signature ice cream – Sambal Flavour.
AS for now they have expended into new concept as they have their first ice-cream shop at Paradigm and now a caffe. Since got a chance to choose for brunch place for a quite gathering, so this outlet was chosen.
Interior is nicely done, playful, yet cheeky and a bit of garden feel. Of course they came from ice cream background, as to have a main open area for people to pick and try on their ice cream i snot surprise.
Its not cheap though as they do have their own customer base. I am sure not a customers of them.
They cleverly use scramble design to play with their flavours of the day and it keep changing as once they are out of stock, they will introduce new flavours in.
Menu is pretty straight forward , certainly its not cheap.
Tried their Piccolo Latte @ RM 9
Mocha @ RM 13
This is quite interesting in brunch menu as Rise & Shine @ RM 22.90 – Ciero Dolci Beef Bacon Gelato shinning a bed of pancake with beef sausages, scramble egg and a bed of potato. When we read Bacon Ice Cream (its like seriously?) well, do give it a try as the taste actually do blends well and you get to bite small little cube of bacon with salty end and ice cream done just right. The rest is nothing to shout about.
Anything with waffle always do capture my attention as Duck on The Run @ RM 22.90 – A stack of smoked duck, caramelise onion, poached egg on waffle & finishes with house hollandaise sauce. It is a dish that I can only finish half a portion myself, as I could not take more than that, too creamy and salty for me. Pancake is done just right, smoked duck is nice and aromatic, just that season onion I find it a bit too sweet for me.
Please Egg Me @ RM 22.90 – Egg baked among a bed of chicken sausage, turkey ham, house baked beans with a sprinkle of cheese.
Of course I came again another round to try out their – Whimsical Waffle – Double Scoop (with premium and alcoholic flavours – Add rm 3) @ RM 21.90 – Coconut Gula Melaka & Bailey.
Bailey was the one that capture my attention as its certainly the winner. Strong hint and well balance of alcohol ice cream. Just that a waffle with 2 scoop of ice-cream at RM 21.90 is way over price for me with such a plain presentation plus along with Mocha that cost about RM 38 for just this simple dessert and coffee. Well, its just the first and last for me. Certainly I am not the right market for them. 😀
