Artelier Coffee X Kitchen @Pavilion

It is always a great suffering for me when you have a sudden crave of some caffeine does into your system when you are having your nice window shopping at Pavilion. I know TWG Tea is great but only coffee lovers will understand that you would just want a cup of nice warm coffee and nothing else. Some would recommend Espressamente by illy which is a good one but not the best one until I found Artelier Coffee X Kitchen. Actually, I have to give the credit to Lwin Lee for her recommendation. She is so crazy about this place. You need to check out her blog too because she is one of the most fanatic person that I have ever met when it comes to food and drink.
Looks familiar? Hell yeah, the one of the most wanted barista, Mr. Masahiro Aoki is back in KL! And he is at the heart of the KL but somehow hidden discreetly at the corner of the Level 2, Pavilion. It is more easy if you look for the Loewe or Moschino outlet. By the way, he is more prefer to be called as Masa-san.  
He is back as usual to spread his love about coffee to all his loyal customers by introducing his favourite coffee beans from Ethiopia, Kenya and Indonesia. He self-selected the finest bean which is suitable to make his profile coffee. 
His signature coffee is definitely is his Dirty coffee! It is a heavy milky taste in it with a ristretto for multiple layers of flavour. It cost RM14.00. He has an alternative for those who dislike the bitter taste which is known as Dirty Sweet which cost at the same price. In the picture above is the original Dirty which I find it really not that bitter at all, It is rather milky which got some "dirtiness" from the coffee.
They do serve their specialty black coffee - hand pour @RM15.00 for those who are cannot tolerate with dairy products. It taste way better than long black, americano and other similar stuff. The hint of coffee taste is visible but the most magnificent part is you able to taste the fruity taste in it too! A fruity taste in your coffee is definitely a new experience for me when I almost forgot that the coffee bean is actually comes from the coffee cherry.
They do serve some cakes which I had on that day was Victoria Sandwich(above) and Lemon passionfruit(below) which cost me RM14.00/pc. They do not taste really bad at all but failed to impress me to find a real reason to love the cake.
Lwin Lee told me that her personal favourite was Walnut cheesecake which unfortunately sold out that day. I would like to try their Smoothie bowls instead in my next visit. There are a lot of delicious fresh food in it!
Overall, I will definitely classify this place as my top spot for coffee when I suddenly crave for one in Pavilion. Life is nothing greater when you have a cup of good coffee to start or end your hectic day. Masa-san's coffee definitely can let me find my own inner peace to relax my mind and soul.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
