Hamasho at Desa Sri Hartamas

The green tea rice was interesting!!!

Full house on a Friday night, this small joint is as close as you can get for authentic Japanese around our neighborhood. 

A mix of Japanese staff and locals will serve you, and they did the BBQ in front of us.

Simple, unpretentious and cozy place. Beware though, people smoke inside the restaurant.

Simple menu with lots of veggie and seafood to offer, especially tempting for us as we didn't want any meat for tonight.

The highlights were the green tea rice with salmon, the grilled squid, and the grilled garlic.

You'll get smoky after a meal, however it was worth it! 

Accepts cash only at the moment (September 2014).

Live Music at One Mont Kiara

Happy with the face lift of One Mont Kiara. Just as I had predicted, the place on a Friday night is packed! Happily pleasant walking to one Mk from our condo, quick dinner at The Barn and listened to live music at Tapas Craft Beer Bar. Tons of expats all making their way there walking from their abodes.

Definitely conventient and a welcome change to the neighborhood. 

Friday evenings just got easier, especially for working couples like us.

Fahrenheit 600 at Publika

Decent place for hot chocolate! 
Spacious. Easy access if you park at Publika or the roadside of publika.

Nice ambience.

Pizza seems to be one of their top along stuff but we didn't order that.

Salad was decent. Hot chocolate superb. 

Nice presentation of my baby food which was heated up and presented in a wood board and plate. 

Daughter's turkey ham and cheese was okay. Ben's was better.

The Barn, One Mont Kiara

After a long hiatus of not eating meat, we decided to go for a treat. Mostly because we were curious of what this new place has to offer.

Pleasantly happy that One Mont Kiara did its renovation and facelift. Many new stuff around, from H&M clothing to new restaurants, like the Barn. 

What attracted me was the thought of having small plates (like tapas). That way we can sample a number of things rather than get stuck with something huge.

We sampled their tapas selection, they had different price ranges available.

Ambience was nice. As I walked around, I was impressed with the decor. Soon, I realized that the place is huge! Told hubby about the other sunken area which had a small stage (for live music), plus their walk-in wine chiller room. Wow, wow! This only means one thing: Mont Kiara residents like us don't have to go to Alexis in Ampang for some live music... And we can even walk to this place and drink a few glasses without worrying about driving back home!!! I'm sure tons of expats will think of the same thing. Glad they opened in the hood.

Food overall was okay. Service was also okay as waiters were new. Top favorite was the pizza which my daughter ordered. 

Pork stuff -- okay, nothing out of this world. 

Thoroughly enjoyed the eggplant and shrimp tapas we ordered. Oh, and also the squid rings.

Presentation and ambience -- two thumbs up!

Pricing is average -- not too expensive. I found La Bodega more pricey.

Overall-- will definitely come back to check out the rest of the stuff. 

Nice ambience and design

Chocolate Overdrive at Salon Du Chocolat

Whenever I pass by the little chocolate place at Publika, I would see well-filled tables. I decided to take a peak one evening. My daughter saw the marshmallow stick they displayed at their window and kept bugging me about it. Today we decided to finally give it a try. We finally sat down, ordered the marshmallow stick smothered with chocolate. She definitely enjoyed every bit of it!

Choco-smothered marshmallow -- worth trying! The coffee latte was so-so. 

I took a small taste of the choco from my daughter's order and I understand why people come back. The choco had high quality taste-- far from the synthetic syrup type of taste that is served elsewhere. 

Would we come back? Yes. For the marshmallow stick with chocolate. 

How about for the molten lava chocolate cake with ice cream? Yes definitely will come back for that. A small indulgence from time to time.

Authentic Italian at Plaza Damas Area

iCook Italian at Plaza Damas ( the new building) is worth checking out. Price is on the high side, but definitely authentic. The owner is usually there, in most of our visits. 

In a quick summary, the pizza is worrying check out. The rest -- okay but not out-of-this-world kind. 

Easy parking. Cozy place.
