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.

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.

La Juiceria on The Star Metro Biz

Happiness beyond words. Our company was featured yesterday in the Star Newspaper in Kuala Lumpur. We shared our story and we hope we can reach more people and share to them how juicing can change their lives.

Today May 8, it was featured again front page in Star Biz for all outstation locations (outside of Klang Valley).

Truly happy that the business is reaching out to more and more people. We have been getting fantastic feedback from our clients -- from weight loss to clearer skin, better energy and digestion and the overall feeling of being healthier.

We also recently sold more new Hurom Slow Juicers as the new model called HU 700 was launched in April 2014. It's the next generation slow juicer which produces smoother juice and has the higher capacity juice bowl.

We made several juicing videos and even an unboxing of the Hurom Slow Juicer HU 700.

Juicing is for everyone -- an easy way to become healthier (and happier)!

Pls visit our site www.lajuiceria.com.my for more info on Hurom, juice cleanse, pricing, and ordering online.

Ante at Publika: the place for ribs!

We rarely have meat, so when we do, we want to ensure it's a place that we will enjoy. We went back to Ante to check out their pork ribs and carbonara pasta (that has real bacon).

Quick lunch, fuss-free, great service and spacious. The requirements of every parent who has 2 kids in tow. My helper was able to push my 7-month old son around with the stroller to lull him to sleep -- hence I appreciated the spaciousness of the place. My daughter shared the ice tea with me ... which was very tasty (I had to dilute with some water). She had her carbonara pasta while we had our ribs galore.

Good, reliable place for pork ribs.

On our way out, I bumped into some of my ex-colleagues who were about to dine at the same place. Talk about coincidence!

Price - 9/10
Ambience - 9/10
Service - 10/10
