Boudoir @ Bangsar


Macarons and manicures might not be a match that most of us would mull, but one outlet in Bangsar Village is trying to change that.


This celebrity-run sanctuary is dedicated to pampering customers' hands and feet. As a bonus, you can sip champagne, wine, juices and tea here while enjoying your pedicure.


We visited this place solely for its sweet treats. The macarons come in six flavors: hazelnut, chocolate, strawberry, coconut, passion fruit & lemon. Not as luxurious-tasting as the ones at Nathalie's and Babycakes, but those locations close by 7pm, while Boudoir remains open through 10pm. Prices here are similar to what Nathalie's charges.


We preferred the chocolates, which were addictively rich and creamy.


Passion fruit bavarois & chocolate mousse. Seemed fresh, with a moist, smooth texture.


Baron's de Rothschild Legende Bordeaux Rouge 2007 & Wombat Hill Chardonnay.

  6. lemongrass: an accidental manicure is when u're only supposed to be getting a haircut, but all of a sudden, a stranger grabs your fingers, starts filing your nails and rubbing cream on your hands :D

  11. michelle: no lar, i didn't have a manicure here. that's why my nails still look all jagged :D
    lfb: it's so me, rite. very chick-lit. chick-lit lite, at that :D
    eiling: ahh, no, they just sell rafflesia chocs, i think. i loved the chocolates! so milky and silky :D
    qwazymonkey: heheh, the day i get a manicure is the day i get a perm. anyways, the treatment packages here seemed rather pricey. between RM80-RM180ish...

  12. Chick-lit lite? Maybe. How about following it with your gory sequel, An Accidental Cannibal? :P

  13. lfb: what's the storyline? in the first book, the heroine inadvertently falls in love with her male manicurist, but in the second one, she unwittingly takes a big bite out of his, ermmm, appendage during an interlude of frenzied fellatio? :D

  19. lfb: yeah, i'm aiming for the title of "greatest trilogy of ALL time." nobody will wanna read the lord of the rings after that :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wait, is that the 'GREATEST trilogy of all time' or the 'GROSSEST trilogy of all time'? One never knows, with Mr. Eat Drink KL... :P

    ReplyDelete
  21. Sean with a perm? That's a thought worth considering. Tell em you want the Pua Chu Kang kind!

    ReplyDelete
  22. lfb: i'm sure u meant to type "the highest-grossing trilogy of all time" :P
    qwazymonkey: yikes, would i get mistaken for gurmit ... a stylist actually forced me to get a light perm once, in 1999. it was a disaster! :D
