♨ Coffee Stain by Joseph 3D Art

3D latte art fever has been a fever in KL since a few months back
for some reason I have yet to develop the craziness for 3D latte art
most probably because I hate foam-like feeling
that's why I never get to try them

so today
my friend's birthday party is in Soho KL
and so I thought like
why not go and hit a try
since I'll be around there already =)

According to my friend
you can order any shapes that you want them to do 
so I googled it up on my way there
and saw this ziraffe 3D is a HARD CORE one
and I decided to challenge the barista there
*evil laugh*

too bad they told me they can't do it for me
probably really too hard core haha!
so I requested for a mainstream Bathing-Kitty kind of art
and yeap they made it for me
nicely done
awesome =)
i think i spent like 15min or more taking pics of the cup
haha! plus selfies  pics of me and my cuppa hot choc

Hot Chocolate plus 3D art : RM15

So for your information
Coffee Stain by Joseph provides 3D art service for
at first I thought any foam stuff can be done (eg. Latte...)
but no, ONLY hot chocolate
plus, there is another RM5 charge if you want a 3D art 
which I think it is reasonably okay

 - the total of one cup of hot chocolate is RM15 -

the barista(s) in Publika branch is beyond friendly
they actually get back to you and ask you how do you think about the art
do you like it etc
and they explained to me why they couldnt do the ziraffe one for me
top notch service =)

Hence, my rating :

Hot Chocolate : 4.5 / 5
Service : 4.8 / 5
Ambience : 4.2 / 5
Price :  4 / 5
Tips : their WIFI is awesomely FAST!

♨ Acme Bar and Coffee, KL Brunch

Acme Bar and Coffee, also known as ABC
is one of the upcoming brunch place in KL (or rather, famous enough to be one already)
It is situated in The Troika, around KLCC area

I personally love the interior design of this cafe
apparently they won an award for casual dining restaurant with best stylish design
long wait though
didn't expect to have to queue for 20+min just to get a table for brunch at 2pm LOL

we were directed to our table upstairs
loving the twirling stairs 
but my friends and I love the deco downstairs more
upstairs was rather, normal =P

 so here's our food!
coffee to kick start the day at 2pm! 
lazy bugs eh =P

Acme Breakfast Club (RM33)
you get to choose your own bread, eggs, meat and sides
Food was not bad though =) 

Acme Breakfast Club RM33

Tuna Melt Sandwich (RM25)
Tuna, capers, peppers on sourdough bread with toasted cheese on top
ahh, I miss the bread back in melbourne =(
oh well, my friend commented that this is nice too!

Tuna Melt Sandwich RM25

Baked Egg Pan (RM27)
Medley of red peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, shredded smoked duck on tomato olive sauce, organic eggs and garlic toast
My friend ordered this cuz of the presentation of the food
haha she found it from one of the hashtag via instagram
it was quite unique though, very egg-ish and yummy 

Baked egg pan RM27

Pear and Buckwheat Pancakes (RM25)
Organic buckwheat flour pancakes with pear topped with cranberry butter and maple syrup
I personally think the pear tasted a bit weird
haha, cuz it was cooked.
or maybe it's just me, that can't get use to the taste.
However, the buckwheat pancakes were good
very wheaty-taste though!

Pear and Buckwheat Pancakes (RM25)

Sizzling Brownies and Oreo Ice Cream (RM19)
served on hot pot, with chocolate sauce
they actually pour the chocolate sauce on your table
and the sauce goes "zziiiziiiiziii~" all the way till the hot pot cools down

We find this brownies rather disappointing though
presentation of food was awesome
but the brownies was a bit too dry in nature

Sizzling Brownies and Oreo Ice Cream RM19

myriad cakes =)
wanted to try a few slices but we didn't get to do so at the end 
too full to stuff dessert in after a huge brunch meal =P

In a nutshell, the food were not bad but not screaming yummy
However, I would like to go back with The Man for their dinner menu!
Apparently the dinner setting is quite romantic according to my friends!
