Once a dead town which has now evolved tremendously as the days go by. Situated just a stone’s throw away from KLCC, avenue K now becomes a lunch venue for working executives besides the good ol’ KLCC and Wisma Sentral. So Thursday’s lunch appointment it is!
Upon stepping into the premise, the lunch set advertisement caught gNOMe 2’s and her very good friend’s attention.
A choice of 6 set meals, starting from RM13 per set and comes with a free Iced Lemon Tea/Hot Tea + Soup Of The Day. Tempting enough. Why not? 😉
Le good friend ordered the Salmon Garlic Spaghetti (RM19), and yours truly had Teriyaki Chicken Katsu Spaghetti (RM16).
Iced Lemon Tea. Pretty decent, not too sweet, slightly watered down.
Chicken Soup. Chicken soup has always been the remedy for the soul. But not this one sadly. It was diluted, lacking chicken bits and seasoning. A pretty much forgettable entree.
They were pretty generous with the salmon. Came in a thick slab, grilled; albeit slightly oily and slightly dry. Pasta was tossed with garlic and olive oil. This whole package makes for a mediocre main.
Breaded chicken fillet on top of a bed of pasta tossed in teriyaki sauce and halfway cooked long beans topped with an egg. Breaded chicken was crunchy but slightly dry. This whole affair is decent but yet forgettable.
Having pastries is a must especially at a place where its’ name carries the word pastry. (Read : Tokyo PASTRY).
Sweet phyllos to seal the meal! Tokyo Pastry has an array of Mille Crepe cakes for patrons to choose from. After aeons, we decided on the Bamboo Charcoal (RM8.90) as well as the Hazelnut (RM9.90). Coincidentally, Tokyo Pastry had a ‘Buy 1 Mille Crepe and Get the 2nd one at 50% discount’.
This pastry was rather intriguing. Slightly sweet and fragrant. Yet, at times it doesn’t leave a pleasant aftertaste. The layers were hard, and the cream wasn’t fresh. Perhaps we have gotten an old batch of crepe.
gNOMe 2 actually preferred the Hazelnut, as it is more flavourful. Similar to the Charcoal Bamboo, the crepe was slightly hard and felt like it was kept overnight.
Verdict : The set lunches were pretty mediocre, so were the desserts. Would be giving this place a skip until we hear good raves about it later then.
