Acme Bar & Coffee
The Troika, Jalan Binjai,
50450, Kuala Lumpur
Friday 11am – 1am
After two unsatisfying brunch experiences at Acme, I didn’t think I would find myself liking their food anymore. When Y suggested to head there for lunch, truth be told, I was dreading it because he kept chanting about how their lunch was pretty good and I didn’t wanna be a bubble pooper.
Alas, I was glad I went along quietly because I really enjoyed their small bites festive menu!
We had the Avocado Croquette, Sticky Nachos & Salt Egg Yolk Chicken Strips. Not in the picture would be the truffled root vegetable fries! Man, that was really good. In fact all of them were equally as awesome. Nothing could beat a truffled purple sweet potato fries for me though! I like how they did not skim on the ingredients and made sure everything came out fairly presentable and piping hot still.
Meatballs were nicely herbed, juicy and cooked in tomato fennel sauce. Winner would be the pasta. Rigatoni cooked al dente in Arrabiata sauce. Loved the smoky, a little spicy tomato sauce pasta dish that was well cooked! Pretty impressed with it.
Before you leave, make sure you have a taste of their Jackfruit cake!
To avoid having to wait, please call them in advance to make a reservation. Yes, even for lunch. and yes, even on a weekday!
