Food Escapades : Good Food & Even Better Company

Here's another one of my food posts, where I basically talk about interesting cafes I stumble upon that you might want to end up unwinding at one day. 

I had a quick lunch with my mom at The Morning After Cafe in Ativo Plaza the other day. I'd give the food a 7/10 and ambiance 9/10. The soup could have used more salt and pasta less water. Overall, it was a nice place to chill at and I'd head back there to give the other dishes on the menu a try.

One of my favourites! The crepes & waffles from La Creperie de Caroline in Bangsar. Located right outside Bangsar Village, Jalan Telawi (same row as Inside Scoop). I think it's safe to say that I enjoyed this more than the one I had in UK. Definitely recommending this place if you have a sweet tooth like me.

Butter + Beans at Seventeen is located at Happy Mansion where Food Foundry is. They have limited pastries but really good ones. They don't bake new batches once they run out so it's best if you head there early like I did for breakfast. The cinnamon roll was my favourite. If you want a quiet place with delicious pastries to chill at, here's where you ought to visit.

Went to Jojo Italian Restaurant in Tropicana Golf & Country Club for lunch with the boyfie a while ago. Slightly pricey but very worth it. I heard the chef is Italian himself so I guess that takes the food to a whole new level of authenticity.

The pies at A Pie Thing are definitely one of a kind. They have a whole variety of pies from sweet to savoury to choose from. I love the Apple Crumble in particular and I can't wait to head back for more! Sheng Wei had one of the savoury one which was really good too. The fillings & gravy just oozed out as he took the pie apart to devour. That just shows how much effort someone put into making that pie. *Zoey's theory*

Went to Acme Bar & Coffee, Troika for Alisa's surprise birthday lunch/tea. On the very pricey side for average food. Nothing I found interesting but nevertheless, brownie points for having a very nice ambiance.

Goodsaltz located in The Curve has desserts that are to die for! MUST GO. The interior of the cafe was designed by the exact same people who designed Acme Bar & Coffee but the menu is totally different. I personally think Goodsaltz has really good dessert, but their mains need some touching up.

In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about having lunch with Sheng Wei at Boat Noodles, Empire Damansara. Recently, I found Nine Bowls in Publika with the exact same concept but the soup tastier than the one from Boat Noodles. I'd recommend this to all the non-muslims as it's non-halal.

Franco, previously known as Miam Miam in One Utama has amazing desserts! There's always a long queue outside and it's always packed with customers. Their French x Japanese cuisine definitely got me hooked. It's a must try! I love their soft serve & creme brûlée! MUCH YUMS.
