S'Mores @ Bangsar South


We wandered into this place following several twists of fate and timing, but it was a fortunate turn of events, since the food turned out to be fairly satisfying.


Creamy pumpkin soup with chives & cheddar cheese. Tasted freshly made.


Caprese salad, featuring cherry tomatoes, mozzarella & basil pesto. The sweet, juicy cherry tomatoes offered a nice twist to the typical tomatoes used for this recipe.


Carbonara pasta with white truffle oil, capellini roe & mushrooms. We were skeptical about whether they'd really use truffle oil, but they did! We smelled a strong whiff of truffle as soon as we dug into the pasta; every strand seemed to bear its flavour.


Vanilla ice cream with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt & raspberry balsamic glaze. Another one-of-a-kind concoction that worked brilliantly, with the olive oil lending an extra layer of luxury to the ice cream's milkiness.


Liquor-based tiramisu. Average, with only faint traces of booze.


Mojito and Sexy Chocolate (tequila, cointreau) cocktails.


French Chardonnay. A decent bargain at RM26 for two glasses.


S'Mores,

  5. The carbonara pasta looks watery, or is it just the picture? Daymn, now I'm thinkin of an awesome mentaiko pasta which I cooked before...so creamy and roe-ey and egg-y. *snaps back to reality* I know u've explained this Bangsar South thing to me...so this is on the side of Pantai Panorama, or opposite? I need my GPS. Is Sid's on this side oso?

  6. min: my diy skills are extremely limited, so i wouldn't dare! but i think u'll need really creamy ice cream to balance out the olive oil :D i haven't had many chances to explore bangsar south, so i'm not even sure where it begins and where the kerinchi flat end =)
    eiling: just a 5-10 min drive from mid valley. here's a good map: http://mywealthplanner.files.wordpress.com/2008/05/bsr-south-location.jpg
    lemongrass: hmmm, i think it was just right. not TOO creamy, not too watery. oh yeah, i lurve mentaiko spaghettis too; only managed to try them at a couple of japanese restaurants (in hartamas). i've linked a map in my comment to eiling above, but i'm not sure where pantai panorama is. u have your gps now, so u can gooo! it's near sid's, but they're in two different developments. sid's is at the village, s'mores is at the sphere, both in bangsar south :D

  10. and why all the food looked so healthy this time??? I thought that you are a carnivore

    ReplyDelete
  11. leo: yeah, i think most of the restaurants opened after the middle of last year. but it still seems a work in progress! =) heheh, i'm learning to become an omnivore, but i'll never become a herbivore, hopefully! :D

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love pumpkin soup (all variations of it)!! Can't wait to try this.

    And Sean, I can't ever imagine you as a herbivore... :P

  13. lfb: coincidentally, i had the chance to order pumpkin soup at an outlet in jaya one earlier this evening, but skipped it in favour of guinness-infused lamb meatballs. and yep, that probably proves that i'll never be a herbivore (even though i was born in the year of the rabbit!) =)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Ok, I'm with you on the alcoholic meatballs... haha, but still would have prolly had the pumpkin soup too. I'm addicted to pumpkins.

    Ever tried the salted-eggyolk pumpkin sticks at Canton Place (I think that's the name of the restaurant, at Solaris Mont Kiara)? Heavenly.

    ReplyDelete
  15. lfb: i hear ya on pumpkins. but u're getting your canton outlets mixed up lah, it's canton fare, heheh =) i've never ordered that particular dish, but it does sound great! my ultimate dream dish would be salted egg yolk-coated foie gras on a bed of layered unagi and pumpkin! :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh yeah. I'm thinking of Lanson Place. Eeks.

    But yeah, your salted egg yolk-coated foie gras on a bed of layered unagi and pumpkin sounds like the culinary version of the man who had sex with fifty virgins then at the point of ecstasy had an elephant dropped on him.

    Oh so good... but after that, sure keel over. Kaput. :P

    ReplyDelete
  17. lfb: oh i've done the 50 virgins thing (without the elephant ending, of coz). it's totally overrated. after i finished, all i felt like doing was lazing in bed, eating honey mustard-flavoured pringles and watching reruns of american idol =)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Honey mustard-flavoured Pringles? Oh that sounds like a weekend I wouldn't mind replicating. (I'd probably substitute AI with a more mindless Spartacus: Blood and Sand though.)

    ReplyDelete
  19. lfb: hmmm, i'll take ryan seacrest over andy whitfield any day (or night) :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. Ok, you get Seacrest, I'm more than happy to settle with Whitfield. :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. lfb: i'll be generous. u can have simon and randy too =)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Gross! For that you can have Paula Abdul (even though she's not on AI anymore).

    ReplyDelete
  23. lfb: you're a cold-hearted snake *ouh ouhh*

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well, whaddacanahsay? Opposites attract. *one step forward, two steps back*

    ReplyDelete
  25. lfb: straight up now tell me, do u really wanna keep this comment thread going on forever *ouh ouh ouhhh*

    ReplyDelete
  26. Just waiting for you to have the last word, mate. C'mon, rush rush... with it! :P
