Valentine’s Day Set – Theobroma Chocolate Lounge @ Bangsar Village I

Theobroma Chocolate Lounge originates from Australia, serves fine chocolate — be it chocolate drinks, chocolate fondue, waffles, pancakes or crepes, the is the place to be. The latest store is opened in Bangsar Village I after opening stores in One Utama and Pavilion KL. Last Valentine’s, Theobroma has a special promotion — at RM19.90 per set, the set comes with a choice of pancake or crepe, mini fondue and coffee, tea or chocolate drink.

Theobroma's Chocolate Chip Sultana Pancake
Theobroma’s Chocolate Chip Sultana Pancake

Chocolate Chip Sultana Pancake is delightful. It’s like taking shower with chocolate instead of water. Chocolate chips, sultana raisins and chocolate syrup, you must choose this if you love pancake.

Theobroma's Chocolate, Nuts & Sultana Crepe
Theobroma’s Chocolate, Nuts & Sultana Crepe

Chocolate, Nuts & Sultana Crepe is delicious and crispy and crunchy. It’s like taking a bath in a bathtub filled with chocolate syrup and nuts. It’s just that incredible. If you prefer something crispier than pancake, you should order this crepe.

Theobroma's Mini Fondue
Theobroma’s Mini Fondue

Theobroma’s Mini Fondue is quite mini and not so tempting. It comes with kiwi fruits, bananas, mandarin oranges and strawberries and a tiny saucer of melted chocolate. However, since this is included in the RM19.90 set, it seems to be alright.

Theobroma's Cappuccino
Theobroma’s Cappuccino

Cappuccino is quite satiating and it is never short of attraction with the lovely coffee art.

Theobroma's Flat White
Theobroma’s Flat White

The same applies to Flat White, a white coffee drink with foamy and beautiful coffee art, the drink tastes slightly better than Cappuccino.

Cadbury BrunchBar Minis Hazelnut

Cadbury Brunchbar Minis is newly introduced by Cadbury. As its name say, the product is suitable for your daily brunch, although I believe it’s more suitable for breakfast or afternoon tea. Cadbury Brunchbar Minis consists of 12 Mini Bars. The Hazelnut flavor has oats, hazelnuts, bran, rice crisps and honey and of course, Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate.

Japanese Desserts – MOF’s Japanese Sweets & Coffee @ Pavilion KL

MOF or Ministry of Food has recently stepped its shoe in Malaysia by setting a cafe namely MOF Japanese Sweets & Coffee in Pavilion KL.

MOF has already established itself in Singapore a couple of years back. And now, MOF is bringing Malaysians the chance to savor the healthy authentic Japanese sweets and coffee right here in our shore. There are a variety of sweets and desserts to choose from, not forgetting a range of exquisite coffee too.

MOF's Mango Imo
MOF’s Mango Imo

Mango Imo consists of Soft serve ice-cream with mango sauce and Japanese Sweet Potato (Imo). The Japanese Sweet Potato is served hot, therefore, this dessert comes with a special note that contains little tips to eating Japanese Sweet Potato or Imo. The best way to eat Imo is to spoon a bit of everything and then eat them together to enjoy the hot Imo and the icy cold soft-serve ice-cream. The result? Delightful.

MOF's Mocha Frappe
MOF’s Mocha Frappe

The Mocha Frappe, which is a drink with the mixture of coffee and chocolate tastes better than expected. Unlike Starbucks, MOF Mocha Frappe is rich with chocolate bits and the coffee flavor is so strong, once sipped, it totally inhales into the nose causing a strong sense of awakening.

MOF's Hot Chocolate
MOF’s Hot Chocolate

Hot Chocolate, which comes with Gyuuhi, a Japanese sweet, is however, less favorable than the other two. In my opinions, MOF is the place for sweets and coffee, and not chocolate. Also, unlike the MOF restaurants elsewhere, the Malaysia version only serves sweets and coffee and they are halal.

Price

  • Mango Imo – RM 11.00
  • Mocha Frappe – RM 10.00
  • Hot Chocolate – RM 9.00

Great Food – The Apartment Downtown @ Suria KLCC

The Apartment Downtown in Suria KLCC serves good and yet affordable food in a really cozy environment.

The Apartment's Cheese Platter
The Apartment’s Cheese Platter

If you are a cheese lover, you must not miss the Cheese Platter, great as appetizer. With a selection of cheeses served with frozen grapes, this dish is definitely a refreshing way to start your dining experience. The selection of cheeses include English mature cheddar (a strong flavored hard cheese), Gouda (slightly smoked semi-hard cheese), Danish blue (soft blue cheese) and Brie (soft ripened cheese). English mature cheddar is my favorite of them all as it has as strong flavored of cheese while I don’t quite like the Danish blue.

The Apartment's Chicken in a Bag
The Apartment’s Chicken in a Bag

Chicken in a Bag is a chicken dish which consists of chicken breast with leek, cannelloni bean, new potato, whole grain mustard and cream baked in a bag. The mustard sauce simply makes this dish delicious.

The Apartment's Seared Salmon Fillet
The Apartment’s Seared Salmon Fillet

Seared Salmon Fillet is seared salmon on crushed new potatoes and slow roasted tomatoes, together with pesto with a sun dried tomato and oregano sauce. It is quite good, the salmon is quite fresh while the sauce makes the dish quite aromatic and warm.

The Apartment's Banana Leaf Lemon Sole

The Apartment's Banana Leaf Lemon Sole
The Apartment’s Banana Leaf Lemon Sole

Banana Leaf Lemon Sole is a fillet of lemon sole in a citrus-spiced coconut milk wrapped in banana leaf and baked in the oven. It comes with steam rice. Although it looks appetizing, I still prefer the salmon fillet over this. The coconut milk and the banana leaf actually make the fillet slightly soggy and lost its freshness.

The Apartment's Iced Cappuccino
The Apartment’s Iced Cappuccino

When it comes to Iced Cappuccino, I prefer Delicious’ Iced Cappuccino anytime. The Apartment’s Iced Cappuccino lacks the real cappuccino flavor as it tastes almost like drain water. Okay, maybe not that bad.

The Apartment's Iced Chocolate
The Apartment’s Iced Chocolate

Iced Chocolate is pretty alright but when it comes to fancy places like The Apartment Downtown, one should never order gourmet coffee (and maybe chocolate) since Starbucks, Gloria Jeans, San Francisco Coffee and The Coffee Bean always have better coffees are just a few shops away. What the heck. Great food and very lovely and cozy ambiance though.

Made of soft, real peanut butter cream centers surrounded by milk chocolate inside colorful sugar shells, M&M’s Peanut Butter Candies is delicious! It’s even better than Reese’s “Peanut Butter” Pieces, the M&M’s look-alike.
