Cafe Olle, Desa Sri Hartamas Smile Jun 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Desserts

 
With so many cafe mushrooming around Klang Valley, it is hard for one to make a choice on which cafe to visit. Cafe Olle, a one-year old Korean-owned cafe located at Desa Sri Hartamas is a cafe that is really worth checking out.

 
Owner Gilbert Kim, who hailed all the way from Korea explained that Olle is the local Jeju dialect word for "a narrow pathway that is connected from street to the front gate of a house".

 
Cafe Olle has a homey ambiance, with the warm lighting & oak-teak walls & furniture. Staffs here are warm & friendly, and greeted us with utmost enthusiasm as we set foot into Cafe Olle.

 
Cafe Olle serves a range of coffee & teas. Their range of teas particularly piqued my interest, as Cafe Olle serves Korean Teas such as Grapefruit, Rice Punch & Citron tea that is certainly rare here in the Malaysia!

 
Coffee Beans are roasted fresh in house here at Cafe OlleCold drip machine

 
At Cafe Olle, one can enjoy various methods of coffee brewing such as Chemex, Aeropress, Cold Brew & much more!

 
Coffee lovers can also purchase various coffee maker such as the Aeropress, French Press & pitcher here at Cafe Olle!

 
Mocha RM12

Smooth, velvety with a fine balance of chocolate-y taste without being overly sweet.

 
Cappuccino RM10

 
Vegetarian Pasta with Fresh Italian Herbs RM14

Pasta cooked with Eggplant & Peas served with Parmigiano Cheese & Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

A simple yet delightful dish. I loved how creamy and flavourful the pasta was. The generous serving of vegetables made the dish less sinful for one to enjoy tongue

 
Spaghetti Meatball Mariana RM14

Chef's special Mariana sauce cooked with Parsley & Beef Meatballs.

Personally I find the Mariana sauce a little too sour for my liking. I liked how soft & tender the meatballs were though, although my makan companions preferred it to be a little more chewy.

 
Bulgogi Rice RM16

Tender slices of perfectly marinated Grilled Beef served with Rice & Kimchi

My favourite dish at Cafe Olle would certainly be this Bulgogi Rice. The beef slices were tender & flavourful, it goes really well with the fluffy rice. Each bite was filled with utmost satisfaction.

 
Olle Signature Brunch RM12/15/18 (Choice of 3/5/7)

Pick from a choice of Eggs (Sunny Side Up / Scrambled / Omelette) , Sausage (Steamed / Grilled) , Yoghurt (Mango / Granola) , Tomato (Fresh / Steamed / Grilled) , Chicken Nugget & Baked Beans/ French Fries / Potato Salad / Cooked Vegetables / Cooked Mushrooms / Cooked Kimchi . Served with freshly toasted Ciabatta.

 
Omelette, Grilled Sausage, Fresh Tomato, Granola Yoghurt,

 
Omelette, Grilled Sausage, Cooked Vegetables, Fresh Tomato & Granola Yoghurt

 
Scrambled Eggs, Nugget, Mango Yoghurt, Fresh Tomato, Steamed Sausage

At Cafe Olle, you get to mix & match your favourite combinations of brunch staples at a very affordable price!

 
Signature Olle Chicken Sandwich RM15

Grilled Chicken Breast served with Torched Mozarella Cheese, Fresh Lettuce, Tomatoe & Chef's Special Spicy Sauce, all sandwiched in between a crusty slice of Ciabatta

 
The chicken meat was tender & succulent, thanks to the flavourful spicy sauce which gave the sandwich a "kick" & the molten Mozarella Cheese which delivers a smokey & creamy taste. The toasted ciabatta was nice & crusty on the outside, soft & fluffy inside which absorbs the spicy sauce,

 
Check out Cafe Olle's own coffee plant outside their store before you leave!

Verdict: Great coffee, homey food & warm hospitality from the staffs. A great place for a simple meal & coffee.

Huge Fried Chicken Smile Jun 14, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Taiwanese | Stall / Warung

Hot Star Fried Chicken is renowned for their larger-than-your-face fried chicekn! 

 
Hot Star Fried Chicken now offers a variety of flavour for their fried chicken, ranging from their classic original, cheese, BBQ, Tom Yam, Sour Plum & much more. I tried the BBQ and Tom Yam flavour and I liked the BBQ flavour as it has a smoky aromatic BBQ taste, apart from the crispy skin & juicy, tender chicken meat! 

 
The Tom Yam flavour on the other hand was a little sourish & spicy, perfect for those sour & spicy fans.

The Sour Plum drink was a refreshing & sourish respite from the savoury fried chicken.

Not-So-Impressive desserts Cry Mar 24, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Café | Juices & Smoothies / Bubble Tea / Tea | Ice Cream / Froyo / Gelato | Desserts

Caffe bene, is one of the latest cafe addition to Sunway Pyramid. I was pretty excited about its opening, 1. It seems really promising, with the mouth-watering array of desserts on their menu 2. The amount of money spent on its opening, signifies that the people managing this cafe is really serious on making this cafe a hit 3. That's always been my reaction on a new cafe.

So last Friday after class, I took a bus all the way to Sunway Pyramid to meet up with my besties from high school! We decided to have desserts for lunch because its not every day you can meet up with a friend who thinks the same way as you do.

I liked the design of Caffe Bene, with its rock walls, and comfy cushioned seating. However, the seating area was limited, just a small corridor for the air-conditioned area, And a slightly-wider-than-the-corridor outdoor seating area. My friend & I had to stand for a while after making our order as there was not seats available.

Honey Bread (Garlic & Cheese) RM16
Toasted honey bread with garlic butter & cheese topping.
Taste wise, I thought that it was pretty normal. It wasn't really impressive and I thought that RM16 was way to steep for a simple toast like this :/
Would've been better if they'd substitute some of the cheese sauce with some melted cheese.
Feeling unsatisfied, we decided to try out their signature dessert- Bingsu. Perhaps it'd fare better?
Cookie & Cream Bingsu RM10.90 (S)
Bingsu is a Korean shaved ice dessert, usually topped with fruits & condensed milk. It is an extremely popular dessert in the South Korea. I've actually never heard of it before so I was quite excited to dig in!
On first glance I thought that this desserts looked impressive! The portion too was huge!
However, the Bingsu didn't really hit the spot.
The shaved ice was coarse in texture and it tasted like ice. You'd have to eat the shaved ice with the whipped cream/ice-cream (not really sure which was it) which was tad milky to my liking or the shaved ice is just..well ice! Thought that the cookie crumbs topping didn't really fit the dessert too as it tasted a little out of place.

I didn't really enjoyed the desserts there. Perhaps due to the difference in preference. Perhaps the Koreans love their desserts that way?
And because of the limited seating, we didn't get to devour our desserts slowly as there were too many customers, waiting for us to finish our dessert to "prowl" for our seats.
On another note, service was pleasant =)

Meteora  OK Mar 24, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Burgers / Sandwiches | Sweets/Snack

Hipster-styled cafe is recently becoming the "thing", and it is now slowly manifesting the market. My neighborhood Subang Jaya has joined in the bandwagon, finally- Introducing a new hipster cafe in Taipan Business Centre- Meteora Cafe

 
Located at the corner lot opposite to Murni Mamak, Meteora is very easy to spot with its distinctive dark signage & bright lighting from the inside.

 
Americano RM7

Meteora is a self-service cafe, where patrons are required to order & make their payment at the counter & the food ordered will be delivered to your seat promptly by their friendly waiters. Meteora menu is still quite limited for the time being as they are still fairly new. Basic things were found on the menu such as cakes, churros, drinks, & main course such as burgers and pastas.

Ample seating were available inside Meteora, and patrons get to choose to sit at their comfy sofa, basic wooden table & chairs or the bar & stool (:

 
The interior was really vintage, and quirky at the same time. Can't help it but to admire the cute little decorations & wall arts.

 
Cafe Latte RM10
The Latte was okay. Not outstanding, but definitely suffice to curb ones' caffeine cravings.

The americano was fine. Served at the right temperature, along with a piece of caramelized sugar biscuit.
Love the caramelized sugar biscuit that accompanies the coffee. It has a pleasant aromatic taste, & was crunchy in texture. The sweet biscuit and the bitter coffee complements each other perfectly, creating a bitter-sweet aftertaste.

 
Americano RM7

 
Churros with Chocolate Dip (3) RM5
Deep fried dough fritters, coated with icing sugar & cinnamon powder, served with a choice of chocolate dip or salted caramel.
The churros have a soft & chewy centre. However, I felt that Meteora has over-seasoned their churros with cinnamon, which tasted tad unpleasant.
The chocolate dip on the other hand, was way too diluted, I could barely taste the chocolate
Overall, Meteora Cafe has a nice, cosy & warm ambiance which was really welcoming. The staffs were warm & friendly. But food wise, I felt that it could be better.

German Gastronomy  Smile Mar 24, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Bar & Pub | Steaks / Chops | Seafood | Group/Family dining | Private Party

Brussels Beer Cafe is a Belgain restaurant cum pub, serving up towels of beers and porky-licious delights to their patrons. They have several branches scattered over Klang Valley, like Sunway Pyramid, Jaya One, Ampang, Mt Kiara & so on!

The interior was really German-inspired, with the oak shelving units & furniture dominating the place. The chattering of the patrons, and the european music playing in the background, paired up with the sound of the grinding machine, created a really soothing ambiance 

Pumpkin Soup RM10.80
Homemade creamy pumpkin soup topped with roasted almond flakes, served with a slice of buttered toast.
Rich in pumpkin flavours & creamy in texture, this soup was the bomb! I enjoyed it till the very last drop.

Wild Mushroom Salad RM15.80
Assorted lettuce tossed with sautéed wild mushroom, homemade vinaigrette dressing, topped with crispy fried onions.
The juicy mushrooms, paired up with the crunchy fried onions, and fresh crisps of the greens, created a harmonic balance between the condiments.

Pork Belly RM30.80
Braised pork belly served with Belgian stoemp, sautéed vegetables, rotkraut and Franziskaner sauce
The pork belly was really tender, and I could slice it easily effortlessly smile
Tender, juicy & succulent, I couldn't have enough of it. It was perfect on its own, but even outstanding when paired with the flavourful Franziskaner sauce. I'd prefer it if the proportion of fats to lean meat is lower though. The mashed potatoes that was served alongside with the pork belly too was on par.

Sausage Platter RM28.80
Hungarian Sausage, Emmenthaler Sausage, Garlic Sausage
The sausage was tender & each bite was bursting with flavours. Don't underestimate the size of these sausages as it was really filling & satisfying to the tummy! Definitely recommended.
