3rd Anniversary Desserts @ Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar, Bangsar

It's been a while since I last explored new dessert creations, but I must admit that the recent dessert experience at Upperhouse Kitchen and Dessert Bar is an eye opener to me. I'm sure Upperhouse is no stranger for those who often go for cafe hopping in the popular Bangsar area.

Conveniently tucked along Jalan Telawi, Upperhouse has its own repertoire of a’la carte offerings which range from the well-loved Western dishes to specialty plated desserts and chocolates.

Upperhouse 3rd Year Anniversary Event
Date: 29 June - 12 July 2020

Event Details:
1. 50% OFF all items during the anniversary period.
2. Pre-order with payment for Anniversary Desserts (Childhood and Angry Chef’s Plate)
to enjoy 50% off this treat

Anniversary Desserts
Childhood @ RM65 
Haw Flakes, Ribena Puff, Cotton Candy, Kaya Cream Puff,
Orange Sugar Marshmellow, Vitagen Panna Cotta

First to impress us is the platter of "deconstructed" dessert which is beautifully composed layer by layer (from red to yellow and green) using our childhood favourite ingredients to tell a tale of the good ol' times. 

Served on a marble platter, this enormous serving of dessert can easily feed 3-4 pax (or more!). I personally love the tangy flavours from the raspberry sorbet (red) and passion fruit sorbet (yellow), and they go well with the sweet strawberries, savoury cheese cake cubes and childhood cookies.

Angry Chef’s Plate @ RM45
Flex Chocolate Ganache, Praline, Meringue, Raspberry Basil Ice Cream, Gold Leaf, Yogurt Boba

I am not sure how is the second Signature Anniversary Dessert named after an "angry chef", but to me it looks like a romantic creation of love handled with much care.

Taking the centrestage is a "chocolate nest" filled with heart-shaped chocolates which are adorned with gold leaf, and it is surrounded by swirls of raspberry ice cream to give a pop of red in the platter. Perfectly great for lovebirds, especially on a date night! (Well, that's just my personal interpretation of art)

Choco Cigar @ RM10
Dark Chocolate, Popping Candy, Hazelnut Feuillantine, Chocolate Cake, Hay Ice Cream, Coffee Cream

Other desserts on Upperhouse's menu are equally noteworthy, for instance the thick chocolate stick which looks exactly like a real cigar! Don't be deceived by how it looks; it is a huge surprise once you sink the teeth into this choco cigar. The hidden ingredients in the cigar yield a wonderful synchronicity of taste and texture. Enjoy! 

Hot Food
Salmon Chips @ RM15
Salmon, Truffle Aioli, Cucumber

Of course, Upperhouse is not just a dessert haven but also offers all-day hot food items. We start with a serving of crisp salmon chips dipped with truffle aioli for communal sharing before we indulge in more savoury offerings in the cafe.

Honey Chicken Kale Salad – RM 25 
Kale Salad, Honey Glazed Salad, Cucumber, Capsicum, Garlic Roasted Cherry Tomatoes, 
Toasted Walnut, Cranberry, Roasted Sesame Dressing

The salad comes in the nick of time when we need a refreshing kick. Drenched in roasted sesame dressing, the kale salad features a delicious, juicy slab of honey chicken chop which yields perfect sweet-savoury enjoyment on the palate. Every bite is so satisfying and I must say the portion is generous too.

Grilled Chicken Burger @ RM31
Grilled Paprika Chicken, Hash Brown, Onion Jam, Jalapeno, Cheddar, Brioche

What entices all of us with an aromatic whiff from far is the huge grilled chicken burger - I mean, look at the layers of grilled paprika chicken with crisp hash brown, creamy sweet onion jam and cheese, all stacked between the fluffy brioche bun. Definitely a good choice for big eaters. 

Garlic Chilli Aglio Olio @ RM18
Red Chilli, Garlic, Parmesan, Cherry Tomato, Capsicum, Rocket Leaves, Sesame Oil

If you prefer something less meaty, the garlic chilli aglio olio would probably suit your palate as it contains crisp greens delights with an added hint of garlicky spiciness. Simple yet extravagantly flavoured, it is an epitome of soul food. 

Kombucha Float @ RM15
Passionfruit and Mint Kombucha, Yogurt Mousse, Mango Passionfruit Sorbet

As a finale, the kombucha float appears - a zesty scoop of mango passionfruit sorbet sitting pristinely atop the creamy concoction of yogurt mousse and kombucha. I take a sip of this fermented drink and it tastes perfectly smooth and easy to drink like a smoothie. 

If that is not your cup of tea, you can choose from their extensive coffee and juice list where you can pick whatever that suits food (and dessert!) pairing and individual taste.

Upperhouse is a perfect spot for creative desserts and Western-style comfort food. Ideal for small gatherings and parties too.
