La Casa, Verve Suites Mont Kiara

20201218_132147

With its sleek wood accents, spacious interior and warm yellow lights, La Casa at Verve Suites, Mont Kiara is a cosy chill out spot that’s perfect for an intimate dinner with the significant other, or brunch with friends over coffee and conversations. The place is popular with the expat crowd as well as locals for its Western dishes the likes of pastas, pizzas, steaks, sandwiches and more. They also have a selection of Asian offerings, such as Japanese rice bowls. I rarely venture to Mont Kiara since it’s so far from my place, but I came here to meet up with some ex-colleagues for a small Christmas get together.

PS: Sorry for the ugly photo. Quality of my phone’s camera has been deteriorating, especially when taking pictures indoors and at night. 😦 Would love to change it but I guess it’s not a need, more a want lol.

Hot chocolate. Frothy, smooth as sin, and not too sweet.

J ordered the unagi rice bowl, which she apparently does whenever she visits. The bowl came with a huge block of grilled unagi (eel), as well as Japanese-style eggs and a side of vegetables.

S had pasta alle vongolle, featuring a generous heap of clams and lots of garlic.

I went for buttermilk fried chicken, which came with a mountain of sweet potato fries, a side of salad and housemade anchovy cream sauce. Was a tad disappointed with the chicken; the inside was not cooked thoroughly and it didn’t smell fresh. The skin was quite soggy too. Only saving grace was the fries, which were nice and salty/sweet, and the anchovy sauce.

For the sweet-toothed, there are a variety of cakes and desserts you can try out! 🙂

The staff was kind enough to move us to another seat when we accidentally spilled some juice onto the table. We ended up spending quite a long time in the cafe catching up on things. There wasn’t supposed to be a gift exchange, but since I had been shopping recently, I got them some items, and they also bought me some treats!
