Acme Bar and Coffee, KL: Summer Menu

Acme Bar and Coffee, or more commonly known as ABC, is one of the few restaurants I've seen that is crowded from early morning till late night! With the famous breakfast/brunch menu, ABC has made its way as the top 10 breakfast venue in Klang Valley, but this time I am there to try out their summer dinner menu instead. 

Love the bright setting that reminds me of spring summer!

❤ ❤ 
It's a kids-friendly venue that suits for all day dining, do expect to be spoilt with
myriad of choices from hot savoury food to tantalizing desserts!

When dawn approaches, romance fills the air under the classy setting of luxury leather sofa, dark ceiling and dim lighting. Perfect for a candlelight dinner for two!

APPETIZER
#1 Summer Crab Salad @ RM39

Initially I did not expect the price of a bowl of salad to be so steep! But I must agree with my dining partner that it is worth the price because of the generous portion of fresh crab meat buried under the concoction of pesto corn and onion under a bed of crispy sucrine lettuce. Served with tosted garlic crispy bread and lemon wedge, this summer crab salad is definitely a great palate opener!

MAINS
#2 Smoked Duck Breast Fillet @ RM49

When it comes to the main course, beef lovers would fall in love with Acme's signature steak. But I find their poultry dish equally good too! Served along with fondant potato and jumbo asparagus, the smoked duck is extra juicy and succulent as it is well-coated with beetroot jus, roast balsamic beetroot and Asiatic spices.

Don't belittle the three thick slices of duck breast, they're as good and filling as a lamb shank!

#3 Pasta Primavera @ RM29

Well, one can't go wrong with a plate of pasta. Although I don't normally enjoy fettucini, but this is  very filling with loads of asparagus, baby carrot, cherry tomato, bell pepper and sprinkles of parmesan cheese.

DESSERT
#4 Assorted Cakes - Caramel Macadamia, Rainbow, Banana Caramel with Alcohol, Cempedak

#5 Sizzling Brownie with Ice Cream @ RM19

Observing people around me, almost every table has this signature dessert on it! Since it is so popular, we order one portion for sharing among 5 of us. Yet it is really too gooey and heavy for us, and we can't finish it. 

As we pour the hot chocolate sauce onto the large scoop of ice cream, it melts perfectly on the brownie all over the hot plate. Having triple chocolate (Sauce, ice cream and brownie) in one serving, chocolate lovers surely can't resist this sweet goodness!

One word to describe all: Yummy!

#6 A Jar of Detox @ RM17
Left: Honeydew + Watermelon + Mint
Right: Apple + Carrot + Celery + Ginger

Time to wash off the heavy meal with a jar of detox! Wholly made of fresh vegetable and 
fruit juices with crushed ice, therefore it is sugar free. Definitely a healthier alternative for all!

Verdict:
1. Lovely ambiance for all day dining. It changes well with the clock-- From a bright cheerful venue for brunch to a romantic dimly-lit dinner in the evening.
2. The quality of food is pretty decent, but pricewise it is slightly over the par.
3. Must try: Sizzling Brownie with Ice Cream
