Offering relaxing lounges and wide selection of cocktails and beer cocktails, astounding mix of flavours with a medley zest and an extensive menu with choices of selection for communal eating as well as individual orders in Chapter One, this becomes divine lounging area. Also engage with their live bands every night while indulging in a drink or two. With a podium, pool table, and some couches, the Chapter One still manages to squeeze some bar tables and stools, as well as comfortable seats, be it to enjoy a drink or two or to enjoy a meal.
Even though the enzyme aldehyde dehydrogenase is not active but the palate is still functioning well to rank my favourite mix of the night. The winner is the Irish Car Bomb which in case anyone is clueless, is the Guinness mix with Bailey’s cream and Irish whisky.The Bailey’s being the first Irish cream introduced in the 70s is probably the key component to the outcome of this. Once the “bomb” was dropped into a half pint of stout, it instantly transformed what was originally coarsely malt into this velvety smooth and rich creamy textured maltiness. Cream curdles when meeting acid, making it impossible to sip this leisurely. Hence one might consider sharing if a pint is too heavy.

Something else for the stroll would be their beer cocktails and cocktails promotion. Pick two choices of Beer Cocktail at RM 45 or choices of three cocktails at RM 60. Here is the Lunch Box (Lager, Orange, Amaretto Disorono), Strawberry Daiquiri (which did not appeal to me thanks to the overpowering Bacardi Carta Blanc to Crème De Fraise and Lime Squeeze), Sex on the Beach (Skyy Original, Peach, Cranberry, Orange) and the Snake Bite Black Pint (Strongbow Apple Cider, Lager, Blackcurrant).
Fermenting at lower temperature, the composition is distinctively distinguishable with the clearer colour. On the other hand, the Strongbow mojito tasted slightly fresher than lager. The after taste certainly roamed a little longer.

Pair all that with bites of juicy and succulent pieces of Crispy Pork Ribs. These deeply marinade and flavourful deep fried pork ribs with fermented bean curd, and served with sweet and sour homemade Thai chili sauce would get you polishing each rib to sparkle in the end. The Pork Meatball is slightly underwhelming when compared to the pork ribs, but a better choice that would make you look more elegant if you are ever on a date.

Their Sliced beef is another fair deal pricing at RM 18 with grilled Angus beef slices served on top of Kailan and accompanied by Japanese soya sauce topped with Wasabi. The clean and pure Wasabi flavour was a memorable one. A very clever choice of condiment to pair with the otherwise ordinary beef slices.

The Pasta range didn’t quite do them great justice but adequate to grant delight to hunger. Pork Meatball Pasta in Tomato Sauce would perpetually keep you digging in thanks to the appetizing savoury sweet tangy flavour from the tomato.

Spicy Seafood Aglio Olio Pasta is one exigent dish in pasta range. If done correctly would be breathtakingly mind blowing. The simpler it is, the more challenging it is. While the seafood in this is relatively good, the texture and flavour did appear to fall short from perfect.

Caved within Desa Sri Hartamas, parking is always tedious but fear not because Chapter One provides free jockey service. Something to look for when considering the venue. All the good reasons to chill and lounge with some good food, a drink or two and some live band performances.
