Indeed, this is what La Casa literally exudes the moment you step into this quaint, cozy establishment that specializes in Western and Italian flairs, gracing the expatriate-centric neighbourhood at Verve Suites, Mont Kiara over a year ago. Embarked with a multi-faceted design of wooden fixtures and quirky furnishings completes with warm lightings, La Casa certainly lives up to a relaxing enclave to unwind within its comfy confines of spacious 1,900 sq ft interior and a 500 sq ft alfresco dining area. Replete with eye-catching throw pillows and olde-worlde bookshelves filled up with bottles of assorted relishes and ceramic stacks, there is no reason why this homey establishment not going to lure you over to dine and drink splendidly especially with their awesome breakfast menu! Not so hipster but more on cozy environment with comfort food.
Unique and enchanting chairs adorned with some curlicue element. Befitting its name which means The House, most of the food here are inhouse prepared from scratch and sourced from the freshest ingredients without any MSG or preservatives by all means. May, the founder of La Casa, is a true advocate of eating real food and live well. After all, you are what you eat, ain't you?
Let’s check out what we sampled the other day to kick start our morning fantastically!
GRANOLA MUESLI WITH YOGURT (MYR 22)
Healthy homemade muesli consists of toasted grain, nuts, seeds and dried fruits served with seasonal, fresh fruits, honey and housemade yogurt. The strawberries are especially very sweet and blend in well with all the yogurt-drizzled companions! BREAKFAST GNOCCHI (MYR 28)
Homemade gnocchi with pesto, spicy Italian chicken sausage, egg cocotte and wild rocket with parmesan and balsamic dressing. The inhouse prepared wurst was definitely a star-stellar with its sapidity and chewy bites. Now I need not to worry about synthetic stuff whenever enjoying my fave sausages for I knew that the casing used to hold the homemade sausages here origins from natural source. Kudos! ONE PAN BREAKFAST (MYR 32)
Comes with choice of homemade chicken, spicy Italian chicken or beef sausage, turkey bacon, roasted cherry tomatoes, baked beans, sunny side up, wild rocket and toast. Your ubiquitous yet not so conventionally executed Continental breakfast, surely will win you over with its tastily done bouncy Italian chicken sausage and terrific salt & pepper sausage! My personal favourite goes for the original flavor, to be paired with the fragrantly sautéed mushrooms and juicy cherry tomatoes. TRUFFLE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH WAFFLES (MYR 23)
Truffle fans are in treat again! Served with mesclum salad on the side, this innovative plate of truffled-infused scrambled egg comes well-armoured with very crispy waffle on the crust that uses special fold in method of meringue, rendering a very fluffy and buttery nuance. If the mushy egg could go tad easier on the sodium, it’s a brilliant recipe from La Casa undeniably! BRIOCHE FRENCH TOAST (MYR 22)
Fluffy brioche served with caramelized apple, crispy popcorn, cream and maple syrup, easily makes it a lovely brunch! BERRIES WAFFLES (MYR 20)
You can never go wrong with this- waffle with mixed berries, caramelized walnut, toasted almond flakes, cream and honey. Each bites of the freshly made waffle were truly engaging with its aromatic buttery hint. Optional to top up at only MYR5 for a dollop of homemade vanilla ice cream, slurps! And now, we’re just in time to call in the dulcet treats for the sweet tooth. SAINT HONORE ISPAHAN (MYR 15)
Pillowy-soft profiteroles filled with a light rose mascarpone cream, fresh raspberries and litchis. LEMON TART (MYR 12)
Mini pastry shell filled with lemon cream topped with lemon zest and glaze. Expect a moist and piquant velvet custard engulfed within the buttery tart. SWEET PLEASURES (MYR 14)
A dainty piece of layered chocolate and hazelnut praline, coalesced with milk chocolate ganache, and light chocolate mousse- bliss! It’s not overwhelmingly sweet but each morsel bits of this gateau is just sensuously gratifying with the varlhona richness and liberally transfused with hazelnut fragrance. Couldn’t ask for more with my fave choc brand in it, yumz..... What’s better to complement the sumptuous gourmet spread other than a good cup of Joe?
And so coincidentally, bumped into a tomodachi whose aromatic coffee I’ve always enjoyed, Masa- san. It’s nice meeting you again! Arigato gozaimasta! FLAT WHITE (MYR 11) CAPPUCINO (MYR 11) LATTE (MYR 11) PICCOLO LATTE (MYR 11) On top of expanding its current offerings, La Casa is also going versatile by looking into streamlining their takeaway and corporate catering service too.
So pop by one day at the new abode of La Casa, especially if you are one epicurean who
enjoy a quiet dining in the perfect mood-setting atmosphere of this hidden gem at the commercial hub of Verve Suites Mont Kiara.
