Acme Bar & Coffee @ The Troika

Acme Bar & Coffee — not exactly the new place in town but I only managed to drop by there last Monday week. I've heard tons of reviews about this cafe; both good and bad. The place is rather posh and I love love love its interior. Do expect more photos of the place instead of the food we had that day, we only had dessert actually. So should I still label this as a food post? :P and I just realised my last food post was like what.. a month ago? #notsoeffectiveblogger

We actually had our brunch earlier at Pasar Seni and I suggested this place for dessert cause there's always room for dessert! Right? :3 

Cappucino (RM13) for Sie Yii and Joeann while JieYi and I had a cup of Twinning's Earl Grey each (RM11). 

Brown and white sugar cubes. 

Just an ordinary coffee art, nothing fancy. It was served with a piece of biscotti too. 

So...this is the Sizzling Brownie & Oreo ice-cream (RM19) that people has been raving about!
The brownie was served in hot place and the waiter then poured in the chocolate sauce.
Look at the smoke and you know it's sizzlin' hotttt ~

Super sinful indeed! But there's one thing, not sure if the hot plate was overheated or that was how it is, there was a burnt taste, meh.
I love the texture of the brownies, definitely one of the best you can find in KL but still not as good as the one we tried in Burps and Giggles. The warm brownie and the Oreo ice-cream is a totally the perfect combo and I love the bits and pieces of Oreo biscuits in the icecream.  

The Light-As-Air Pavlova (RM15) served with generous amount of freshly chopped strawberries and passion fruit sauce. True to its name, it's light, fluffy and crunchy at the same time, probably a tad too sweet to my liking. The passion fruit sauce made it a little different by adding a slight sourish taste to the sweet dessert. Overall, it's still a good dessert.  

The brownie gang of the day and half of my face! :D 
And how can I miss an #OOTD short?
Crop top is definitely my fashion staple for now, and it's definitely on trend right now. Plus, it's a good motivation for you to strive for flat abs and you wouldn't eat that much in public too, cause you won't wanna have your bloated tummy to be seen right? HAHA make some sense huh?

&& apparently Krystal from F(x) was wearing the same floral printed crop top in their latest video here. The video wasn't even out yet when I bought the top :P 
Sorry for side tracking. Let's get back to the food post HEH
Another classy section of their dining area. 

Look at their selection of cakes! And these are not ordinary flavoured cakes, just so you know. 

Their all-time-famous Cempedak cake!
We didn't dare to try it though, cause we had a feeling that we won't like it after a heavy brunch. 

Assorted meringue in glass jars. 

You must really pay their restroom a visit, you'll know why I said so. 

Their front desk. 

All in all, I would definitely recommend this place if you're planning to have tea or coffee with your friends, or even a lunch or dinner with friends or family. Oh, they have al-fresco dining too but it's probably not a good idea to dine outside during lunch due to the sunny weather of Malaysia. They may not serve the best coffee but it's the ambiance and dessert that are worth considering. I'll definitely be back to try their main course and breakfast (:

It's located near GTower and KLCC which means it's accessible by means of public transport. The nearest LRT would be Ampang Park which is around 10 mins walk away. Fret not, they have basement parking too for those who drives with reasonable parking fee too.
