Desa Sri Hartamas' latest pub debuts with tasty Southeast Asian temptations that we scarcely see in KL's watering holes - from Malaysia, the Laksa Johor, blanketed with fish-&-prawn gravy & bolstered by can't-fail sambal belacan, is comfort food with a local soulfulness (RM22), while from Indonesia, the croquette-like snack food of risoles boasts a satisfying freshness, its crisp breadcrumb exterior yielding to a hot, moist filling of chicken, potatoes & bechamel sauce, paired with kitchen-made green sambal ijo as a punchy dip (RM15). While most customers head here for a pint, the bar's friendly team obliges requests for cocktails - sip on a classic Old Fashioned or the house signature of The Auntie, a blend of rum, midori & pineapple juice.
