From Fossil to Fork
Thursday night was date night for me. But since KH had yoga til 7:30 PM, I had to kill some time. Coincidentally, there was a Fossil warehouse sale at Menara Atlan, so I went there to take a look. This time round, they had Skagen timepieces and leather goods (strangely Skagen no longer sells in Malaysia). Nothing caught my eye, but I did help SK get something that she wanted.
Once KH was ready to go, we headed to ROOST, a contemporary European restaurant located on Jalan Telawi 3. Since it's located upstairs, it enjoys a peaceful setting unlike the usual Bangsar bustle. The restaurant is very charming, and has an open kitchen concept. Really open, as there even isn't a pane of glass that separates the diners from the kitchen staff. The menu is minimalist, just two pages. We were at a lost as to what to eat.
The waiter recommended their pasta, so KH went for their slipper lobster ravioli, and I ordered the slow-cooked chicken breast (based on their name, their poultry must be good). As promised, the ravioli was good, and I also enjoyed the chicken. "From Farm to Fork" is their motto, so all the ingredients were fresh and sourced-locally where ever possible. Portions aren't too big, so if your appetite is bigger, do consider an appetizer or soup.
Had a short walk in BVII after dinner. No interesting deals at the Private Structure boutique. And it seems that The Loaf was replaced by Nala Designs. It was already open for business, but the interior was still work in progress. Didn't really find a suitable place for coffee, so we just called it a night.
