Brewmen Smile May 28, 2014

KL can already welcome another destination that's destined to draw coffee devotees in droves.

 
Brewmen is trying to open in a low-key, nearly hush-hush manner, but it can't fly under the radar for long, not when it offers temptations like filtered coffee (RM11, specs: Guatemalan single-origin, AeroPress-brewed)

 
... a robustly respectable latte with full-bodied complexities (RM10 nett, Costa Rican beans from Dutch Colony Coffee) ...

 
... plus light, low-acidity cold brew coffee (RM12, El Salvador beans; notice the Central American theme right now) ...

 
... & the interesting red affogato (RM12), with Rooibos tea to replace the regular espresso shot.

 
For food, Brewmen should start serving sandwiches this weekend; for now, customers can munch on the festive seasonal special of a Mandarin orange cupcake (RM8) ...

 
... or a big chocolate brownie, warmed up to order & partnered with vanilla ice couple (RM12).

 
Scones are available too; all in all, this place feels like one to watch this year.

Zenzero Smile May 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Italian | Restaurant | Bar & Pub | Pizza/Pasta

 
This understated, unfussy outlet seems set to nurture a placid presence at St Mary Residences; it's casually elegant, maintaining the spotlight on enjoyable food served by a hardworking team.

 
With a chef like Zanella, everything's worth eating, but our top pick's the Ancona-style brodetto, a seafood soup that brims with fresher-than-expected octopus, mussels, clams, fish & shrimp. Beautifully satisfying.

 
Hearty, house-made fettuccine with a thick truffle sauce (RM38+). Pasta that provides pure pleasure & compelling comfort.

 
Ravioli filled with Piedmontese beef (RM28+), robustly savoury.

 
Baked gnocchi sorrentina (RM42+), carbs made cheesy with mozzarella, tangy with tomato sauce & buoyant with basil leaves.

 
Sicily's sweet pride, ricotta-choked cannoli fried pastries, to wrap up this feel-good lunch.

 
Baked spinach & gorgonzola cheese pie (RM24+). Crispy-creamy textures, mild-&-light flavours. Another pleasant starter that two can share.

 
Warm apple phyllo strudels with a stuffing of pine nuts, a thin coat of grappa sauce & a cool companion of raisin ice cream. RM18+.

 
Carte Rouge Bordeaux, Calvet (RM78+ by the bottle). Zenzero's cheapest wine is a well-chosen, earthy one.

Bankara Ramen OK May 28, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen/Udon/Soba

 
Tokyo-based Bankara Ramen has taken its international expansion one step at a time; six years after branching into Bangkok, this noodle chain finally sprang to life this week in Kuala Lumpur.

 
Bankara's signature broth (RM27++ with four hefty pieces of chashu) is made with pork bones infused with refined shoyu. Mellow in savouriness, mildly sweet, fatty-tasting though nevertheless not as thick or deep in flavour as many other recipes; folks who want a more luxurious texture can order an accompanying dollop of butter.

 
We were unable to try the slow-boiled, milkier tonkotsu-broth ramen, as the restaurant is currently rationing its limited supplies, which include ingredients imported from Japan. Bankara also serves a miso-based broth as well as tsukemen.

 
Side dishes include the likes of addictive onion-garlic mixes & aromatic spring onions

 
Not into ramen? Try the buta kakuni don (RM15++), soul food of steamed rice with succulent braised pork belly, soft-boiled egg, fragrant white sesame, mayo & sliced seaweed.

 
Tori karaage (RM10++). Pretty satisfying deep-fried marinated chicken, crisp & tender, tangy with a little lime.

 
the highlight for us was a substantial serving of fresh, complimentary garlic on each table that customers can press for themselves (we must have eaten a dozen cloves).

Thai Camp Smile May 28, 2014

Scouting for Thai fare? Pitch your tent at Thai Camp, set up recently at PJ's foodie-friendly site of Taman Paramount.

 
Casual meals can be enjoyed at this temple of spice; hog-worshipping recipes might command the most fervent devotees, from pork phanaeng curry (RM20), vivid in colour & flavour ...

 
... to pork that's stir-fried with stirringly fiery-tangy lime sauce (RM18) ...

 
Fried egg salad, satisfying with seafood (RM17).

 
Crispy-creamy preserved eggs with pork in holy basil sauce. RM18.

 
For fans of eggs, more than a few fun finds: The menu calls this one "Amazing Eggs" (RM15), hard-boiled & heaped with a meaty gravy.

 
pork deep-fried with kaffir lime leaves (RM18), a worthy sacrifice at shrines of sin.

 
This looks like a run-of-the-mill omelette when it surfaces at the table, but break it open to reveal a steaming-hot stewed stuffing of meat & carrots. RM13.

 
pork that's kept simple & savoury with garlic, that magical complement (RM15)

The Big Easy is roaring into PJ's SS2, courtesy of Crab Factory, opened this month by a merry band of Malaysians who once swung through southern Louisiana on a summertime road trip spiced up by Creole & Cajun cooking & swore to bring home their tastiest recollections of the bayou.

 
We forwent the crabs in favor of the crawfish, the more popular component of true-blue seafood boils. RM78 buys a minimum order of 500 grams that'll feed two or three people, especially with soft, lovely potatoes (RM6) or corn (RM4) thrown into the bag.

 
Customers can also choose prawns, mussels or baby octopus; the food isn't cheap but it's not unprecedentedly priced either, not in this year of escalating costs.

 
Prepared in lemon pepper, garlic butter or 'signature whole shebang' sauce; the final one's marked by major heat, more spicy than savory. Even the medium setting packs firepower that's more ferocious than expected.

 
Southern fried chicken wings, hot & juicy (RM12.90 before taxes). Crab Factory's opening menu sticks to the more easily prepared fundamentals, so the food's served pretty fast; perhaps po' boys, jambalaya & bananas foster might come later, but it's fine for this place to focus on quality over quantity for now.

 
Gumbo is served as a snack here, featuring shrimp, sausage meat & okra swimming in soupy, soul-food stock over rice. RM12.90; probably functions more as a light lunch than a substantial dinner.
