A planned brunch day out for gNOMe 2’s big day to Podgy & The Banker + did not materialize as Podgy+ was closed for Hari Raya. And since the gNOMes have already arrived at Verve Suites Shops, we decided to just pick another brunch place instead.
and oh, Selamat Hari Raya to our Muslim readers! 😀
So we agreed on La Casa after browsing through their menu and comparing them to B-Lab. Parking at Verve Suites Shops are in abundance, and surprisingly, rather cheap considering that Verve Suites Shops are located in Mont Kiara! Parking, if we may recall correctly, is RM 1 for every hour.
La Casa’s ambiance is rather praise worthy, laid back, cozy yet elegant. We loved the ambiance there, and actually spent close to 3 hours there.
Iced Dark Chocolate [RM 14.00]
Thick and legit dark chocolate with every sip, this is one for the dark chocolate lovers. Roughly about 60-70% cocoa by our gNOMe estimates (might be wrong!).
Fried Mozzarella [RM 24.00]
We decided to order starters, and settled on Fried Mozzarella. Who can resist CHEESE?! 😀 Breaded Mozzarella, deep fried till golden brown. We loved the fact that the chef was very generous with the cheese, nicely deep fried, giving it a crispy bite and the Mozzarella sticks were not oily. We thoroughly enjoyed this starter. 🙂
Pizza Marinara [RM 25.00 for 9″]
La Casa’s own Pizza Marinara topped with prawns, squids, fish, tomatoes and Mozzarella. The pizza tasted very well-balanced with a thin crust. Just the way we love it.
Breakfast Gnocchi [RM 29.00]
They don’t call this breakfast platter “Breakfast Gnocchi” for nothing! A platter of pesto gnocchi, spicy Italian sausage, egg cocotte, fresh rocket salad with parmesan & balsamic dressing. This is the real deal. The gnocchi very well-seasoned, melting in the mouth, while the sausages would be a real treat for people who love pepper. The only shame was that the baked eggs were a little watery and under-seasoned.
Brioche French Toast [RM 20.00]
Brioche French Toast served with caramelized apple walnut, toasted almond flakes & maple honey. Rejoice, you sweet-toothed people! A good way to start your morning is here. Although, the gNOMes were a little disappointed at the absence of whipped cream.
Verdict : Overall a place that serves good food at a reasonable price. They do many things well. Do give it a try when you have the time. Did we mention that the fried Mozzarella is to die for?
