Thirdwave Smile May 30, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Bakery / Cake / Kuih

 
Thirdwave is set to spark a sea change for caffeine lovers in Bangsar South, helping to turn the tide against mediocre coffee as part of 2014's first wave of fresh faces in Kuala Lumpur's cafe scene.

 
Like many of today's coffee bars, Thirdwave's super-serious about what it serves, ensuring its Ethiopian Yirgacheffe, Kenyan AA & Tanzanian single-origin beans receive nothing short of tender, loving treatment from a Chemex coffee-maker, Coffega cold-drip system & Kalita 102 ceramic dripper.

 
We blacked out for our coffee choices this time. Nice, nutty nuances.

 
Thirdwave operates on the first floor of the obscure-for-now Nexus complex, which isn't luring many visitors so far (indoor parking's still free). Expect to hear much more about Nexus in the year ahead, but since it's still crowd-free for now, Thirdwave's owners have time to stroll around & hand out cute samples of their coffee in test tubes.

 
Thirdwave's own banana cream pie, pulpy & full of fruity sweetness.

Cafe Olle OK May 30, 2014

Conveniently spacious; not the most soulful cafe around, but it's a very practically outfitted enterprise nevertheless.

 
By-the-numbers descriptions, so customers know what they'll be getting.

 
Savannah Street espresso, confidently full-bodied with non-punishing acidity & a pleasing balance of sweet & bitter nuances, exactly how we like it.

But we'd skip the hot chocolate, constructed with Korean-origin chocolate that tastes one-dimensional & far from robust.

 
Lots of cakes here, from cheesecakes to yam cakes to red velvets.

Cowboy Burger Smile May 30, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Bar & Pub | Burgers / Sandwiches

 
SS15's new kid in town Cowboy Burger, helmed by friendly sheriff James Cheong.

 
Cowboy is proud of its pork burgers, relying on antibiotic-free meat for its charbroiled patties & creating recipes like the "Very Hot Piggy Burger," crowned with natural cheddar & grilled tomato & smeared with a sticky, sweet-savoury sauce that contains cili padi & lemongrass.

 
Cowboy's chef is a Malaysian who spent several years in Tokyo, so there are Japanese influences in the food here. The tonkatsu burger (RM13.80++) is well-executed too, topped with Cowboy's own tonkatsu sauce & naga-negi onions.

 
The menu is extensive; besides chicken, beef & vegetarian burgers, there are also pork meatballs that can be topped with cheddar or berry sauce (RM8.80++), plus hot dogs, basic pastas, fish & chips, onion rings, nachos & chicken wings.

 
Bacon ice cream (RM4.80++) is available too, a vanilla flavour laced with plenty of pleasantly chewy meat.

Cute Ball Kitchen Smile May 30, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Vietnamese | Restaurant

 
A romance that blossomed in Hanoi might now make food lovers in Kuala Lumpur strike up an affair with Vietnamese fare, home-cooked with the sort of passion that's the province of the tastiest private kitchens.

 
Cute Ball Kitchen is the brainchild of Malaysian Kenneth Teoh & his Vietnamese wife, Hoa, who met while Teoh was working in Vietnam's capital. Teoh returned in 2013, bringing home Hoa & their now three-year-old son, whose Vietnamese-language family nickname forms the basis for their new private kitchen's name.

 
Hoa is likely to prepare communal meals of three to four dishes for guests. Her repertoire includes grilled seasoned pork, juicy, aromatic & savoury, wrapped in wild betel leaves that the couple pick themselves from a nearby hill, braving mosquitoes there to procure these peppery pleasures.

 
Hoa's Vietnamese salad scores top marks, light & exceptionally easy to gobble up, wholesome-tasting & ravishingly nuanced with fresh veggies, seafood, meat, herbs & nuts. Like everything here, it's painstakingly prepared, with nearly a full day's worth of slaving in the kitchen to whip up courses like this.

 
Salt-&-pepper squid. Hoa's standards for seafood are high, the result of many years spent at Halong Bay; the couple now regularly drive to Sekinchan on weekends to secure straight-off-the-boat seafood _ an effort for which guests will be grateful.

 
Braised pork belly, sumptuously caramelized. Bring a nice Merlot to savor with this; in a cost-effective contrast to eating out at a restaurant, there's no corkage fee here.

 
Steamed rice is thoughtfully sourced too, coming from a paddy processing plant amid Sekinchan's rice fields.

 
With Vietnam having a strong French connection, it's not improper _ but nevertheless a pleasant surprise _ that Hoa opts for French sweets to wrap up her meals. Freshly baked madeleines are an uncommon treat, but what really won everyone over was the heavenly dark chocolate tart, thick & creamy, rich in flavour.

 
All in all, this feels like a lovely way to spend a casual Saturday evening, the only time Kenneth & Hoa currently operate their private kitchen. The couple have hopes of eventually starting their own cafe (we vote, "yes, please!") & are currently open to also supplying cafes with baked goodies (the dark choc tart would be a sure-fire hit, much more delicious than the norm).
Follow Cute Ball Kitchen at https://www.facebook.com/CuteBallKitchen ... Meals cost RM55 per person (Edit: updated to RM68 as of February 2014), a very fair price for the entirety of the experience.

Cosans OK May 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Burgers / Sandwiches | Bakery / Cake / Kuih

 
Comfy & invitingly spacious, with a service team that's earning solid praise for friendliness.

 
Sandwiches comprise the crux of Cosans' food menu, served hot & stuffed with the likes of smoked duck, melted mozzarella, confit tomatoes & arugula (RM15).

 
The Carreau blend comprises Brazilian, Papua New Guinea, Ugandan, Tanzanian & Costa Rican beans. Sure, a latte's not the route to explore the nuances of a coffee blend, but the strong-tasting milk in this makes it even trickier. Order it black instead.

 
Equerre's best for espressos, a rich, complex combo of Brazilian, Colombian, Guatemalan & Sumatran Mandheling produce.

 
Cosans' signature tea: Jasmine scented with rose oil. Evokes fragrances & flavours from talcum powder to Turkish Delights.

 
No shortage of beverages to contemplate: Dark chocolate with milk & Earl Grey. All in all, Cosans has its allure; considering the expertise that's been channelled into this place, it could become a bona fide hit.
