Alexis Bistro & Wine Bar, Bangsar

>> Saturday, September 26, 2009

Date: 16 September 2009, Wednesday
Venue: Alexis Bistro & Wine Bar, near Bangsar Village
Occasion: Farewell dinner for Jacjac
Overall comment: I was VERY surprised at the quality of Asian food at Alexis. Thumbs up man!
Halal: Yes

This is a long overdue post!! Hahaha...I've been running around getting other things done that I didn't get down to typing this post out :P Thousand apologies to my buddies for the delay... this dinner meet-up was truly a fantastic one!

Junie, Jacjac, EB, & I met up for a simple dinner with Jac before she left for the UK again. It's gonna be at least 2 years before we get to meet up as a gang again! *sob sob* Lovely dinner, awesome company, wonderful desserts to end the weekday night with a smile :)


Kerabu Fried Rice (RM20.00/set)
"Fried Rice with Deep-Fried Tumeric Chicken Leg, Green Mango Salad, Salted Fish, & Sambal Belacan, served with fish crackers." The fried rice was more fragrant than the kerabu rice we had at Delicious in Bangsar Village. We were rather surprised with the quality of the Asian food here :)

Bihari Lamb Kebab (RM25.00/set)
"Lamb kebab served with roti & mint yogurt." The serving was a little small, but Junie said the lamb kebab was decently tasty. The roti is actually roti canai, so there's nothing much to shout about since it's surely not the best roti canai...hahaha...

Nasi Istimewa Alexis (RM25.00/set)
"Kaffir lime & garlic flavoured rice with ikan bakar, beef rendang, kerabu pucuk paku, & eggplant sambal." This is a dish for the royalty!! The serving was freaky! I nearly fainted at the sight of the dish... I certainly did not expect anything this large & much, & was truly shocked by the size of the fish itself...it took up half my plate! I didn't know where to begin when the plate landed on my table...hahaha... the rice was fragrant by itself thanks to the kaffir lime leaves & deep fried chopped garlic; the fish was really tasty - they used ikan setongkol, quite an easy fish to eat since it only have a large middle bone to be removed; I love the kerabu pucuk paku (ferns) & wished they gave more, though I can't eat anymore already *lol* I felt the beef rendang was excellent as well ;) Tender beef in very fragrant mixture of rendang paste, chilli, & coconut shavings, the dish was really well done that I didn't even realize it was beef (no strong beef smell) & was enjoying every single bite of it...hahahaha...oh yes, the eggpplant was lovely as well... I can't help to think that Aaron would have loved this dish :P

Dark (Bitter-Sweet) Chocolate Cake (RM12.50/slice)
Very rich, but in my opinion it was too sweet for my liking. This is for all dark chocolate lovers! Moist cake with dark choc - what more could you ask for a Happy Meal? :D

Mixed Berries Meringue (RM15.00/slice)
My all-time favourite! I couldn't eat that much after an extremely heavy meal of the Nasi Istimewa Alexis, but I just had to have at least 1/3 of this meringue....yummy blueberries with sweet-sour strawberries on a light, yet creamy meringue...aahhh.... *drools*

All smiles :)
