There are PLENTY of reviews about this place already, but here are my 2 cents worth, combined from 2 visits:
(I'll keep it short and sweet....)
It's hard to miss, located on the ground floor just opposite Starbucks:
(Where Bakerzin used to be)
Overall, its casual but nice, although it feels a little bit cramped inside.
- Buffalo Wings (RM 15++)
Tender texture and slightly spicy but a bit too oily.
- Wagyu beef pie and Moroccan Lamb Pie (RM 19++ each):
Both pies were really nice - big serving considering the price, flakey and crispy on the outside with tender flavorful fillings.
- Cross section of the beef pie:
Out of the 2, I preferred the beef pie as it was more moist, but the lamb was really interesting too as it had a nice fragrance of spices.
- Spicy Crabmeat Linguine and Wild Mushroom Linguine (RM 19++ each)
There are good reviews online but when I went there, they were both kinda bland and the linguine was overcooked.
(Between the 2, the crabmeat linguine was better IMHO, because the slices of kaffir leaves added some zing to it)
- Rocky Road Slice (about RM 5++)
Very good price for such a big piece but the crumbley coconut-y base was super sweet - I only liked the bouncey top layer of marshmellows and chocolate.
- Chocolate Mousse cake (RM 11++)
Definitely moist and chocolatey enough but there was a very very very slight flour-y aftertaste.
So far, they were annoyingly slow 2 out of 2 times.
(Once during a weekday lunch, and another during a weekday dinner time)
"Friendly but slow" I can accept most times, but "borderline incompetent and slow"** I really cannot stand. To be fair, they have only been open for a short time so maybe its just initial teething problems... but for the meantime, consider this a warning that you need to go there armed with ample patience.
(** Taking ages to clear tables, have to be prompted for menu/cutlery/food several times, missing out orders completely, etc)
Overall: Modern and cosy new cafe in Bangsar with a range of interesting New York/ Australian cuisine, reasonable pricing BUT strange pricing (most things are affordable whilst others seem expensive, in particular the limited Asian selection) and service can be a bit annoyingly slow....
