Pisco bar changkat - cocktails, cebiche, churros

10 Aug 2017 - Now who wouldn't have know Pisco bar? Pisco Bar is one hang out place after work, an eclectic urban chic atmosphere, enjoying outstanding cocktails and live music performances, and dancing with some of the trendiest DJs in town. Well, what's cooking behind Pisco's kitchen, you might be asking. Want to know what's food available at Pisco? Read on to find out more.

The gastrobar's ambience was rugged, mysterious, a little bit of chic style. Funky music all night long, making you sway and move your body, bit by bit. The best part is the staff is well trained on their food and drinks, needless to say, the owners of Pisco, Yvonne, Nico and Leonie are always friendly, mingle around with their guests.












When it comes to bar concept, the only thing to make you simply different is definitely your drinks. Cocktail story of the night. What I like is a mix of local products with a twist.

Pisco Spice RM 36 – Pandan syrup in the drink recipe...oh my my, now who would resist pandan smell? Was wondering why egg white joining this cocktail mix, hmm...

And when you have a hot Chili martini RM 34. Vodka infused with lemongrass, chili, and luckily passion fruit syrup balance the martini, with a little of sweetness and spicy taste.


cebiche

A wow factor for me, my First time trying Peruvian cebiche RM 44. Salad made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime. I was like, okay finally raw fish to be prepared in a different way, besides sashimi. I don't think three shots enough for me, as you keep going taking the cebiche. Nico, the marketing person for Pisco, explains the citrus juice mix with the raw fish, creates the name of tiger milk. *Photo provided by Pisco.


Pisco Tapas


When you come to a Spanish bar, it is always great drinks, come along with finger food or light bites. Pisco bar has a great tapas platter for you to choose, but then, you can also choose single tapas as your liking. Pisco Tapas RM68: Comprises deep fried baby squid, Parmigiana, Mushroom croquettes (cream base), Grilled chicken skewers and chorizo lollipop (Spanish cured pork sausage) .

The Pisco parmigiana is basically our take on the eggplant parmigiana and consists of layers of sliced eggplant, cheese and tomatoes, similar to a lasagna preparation method.

Some might find the chorizo a little bit salty, but when you try it as you enjoy your drinks at Pisco, you might feel otherwise.



Well, if you think that only Asian loves to eat rice, think again. Paella has been a family recipe, given a twist of the traditional recipe. For Pisco seafood Paella RM 80, they use mussels, prawns and big squids. However, you need to wait for 1 hour to have the paella ready.  The lemon twist is given a tangerine tasting as you are eating the Spanish seafood rice.


churros
Churros RM 18, famous dessert snack in Spain. Pipe strips of dough with cinnamon seasoning. Pisco version is soft churros. Dip into the sexy hot chocolate at Pisco bar. Sugar rush in the blood, accompanied by live music in the happening gastrobar in Changkat.

Coffee and toast at da men usj - Nasi kunyit, nasi kerabu, anson chee cheong fun



Spacious, clean design for all the furniture. 

*However, funny on the lighting though. Seems a lot of 'shadow' as you walk in.


13 Aug 2017 - Coffee toast at da men USJ. Modern local coffee shop, but they do not serve only toast and coffee, but also special local food for eg: nasi kunyit with ayam percik, Ipoh anson Chee cheong fun with radish and vegetable fillings, pandan roti jala, and nasi kerabu! Not many noodles choices, but they have alternative offers like big breakfast, croque monsieur, and English coffee! Fusion? Your taste to decide...can't believe all the foods there are that cheap, it is almost the same price of the food stall price, and free Aircond and comfortable zone, haha!




Finally, a cup of teh tarik, with less sweet milk as per my request.


Croque Monsieur

I ordered the croque monsieur, thought to give a try on something new apart from the local coffee shop menu. However, the bread slices are too thick, and I end up stuffing the carbo, more than me enjoying the ham or the cheese.


chee cheong fun and pandan roti jala


Well, a little mix feeling of here and there. First, the chee cheong fun with the vegetable fillings is splendid, with the pickled green chilli as always. However, matching this with curry chicken? Not really matching right?


And then ah ha, where else I can get roti jala in modern coffee cafe?! But alas, I can taste the pandan powder/ syrup more than the flour texture. Perhaps, the original roti jala would be better, and yes, roti jala match with curry chicken is perfect.





Very good marketing, stopping people to check out what they offer.



Nasi Kunyit with Ayam Percik

I like this. Nasi Kunyit with Ayam Percik. although not much strong fragrance from the kunyit paste, the ayam percik was mild spicy, and soft juicy meat.





As if I can't make the half boiled egg at home right? But well, when we have the right coffee, of course, I will order the half boiled eggs as well!

BBQ chicken (Korean Style) at Tesco Midah



7 Aug 2017 - I was like joking: "BBQ chicken but promoting Korean BBQ chicken." so do you think the chicken is from Korea? Lol, must be plastic surgery chickens. 


Their unique selling point is 12 hours marinate with different seasoning. Probably I break the record to try so many different types of chicken on the table. Priced at rm15-30 per course. The chickens are not as big as you can see, smaller portion from the normal serving, just good enough. 



Very soft chicken meat, however sauce probably too sweet. Tried super spicy ramen, of course you won't go wrong when you cook ramen. The flour they use to fry the chicken is interesting, not those crispy like KFC, probably a finer bread crumbs mix with fine flour, nice.
