Chocolate Steam Pudding @ Alexis Bistro, Bangsar Shopping Centre, KL



Yesterday, we indulged in some wicked Chocolate Steam Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM10++) to celebrate good news we received. This is currently my favourite indulgence as the steam pudding is not too rich but still chocolately enough to make it feel sinful.

They have a wide selection of cakes and desserts here so do take your pick from: apple pie, banana cake, banoffee pie, black and white chocolate, blueberry cheesecake, bread and butter pudding, carrot cake, cheese cake, chocolate banana mascarpone, chocolate berries meringue, chocolate bittersweet, chocolate brownies, chocolate cinnamon, chocolate moist, chocolate mousse, chocolate silk, chocolate walnut, italian cream cake, mango cream pie, mixed fruit meringue, orange and almond, pavlova, peach and banana crumbe, pear and ginger upside down pudding, pecan pie, tiramisu, zucotto dome and etc. Note that not all desserts are served at one time hence it's always advisable to call them ahead to check what selections they have available for the day.

Besides desserts, the main meals are great too especially the Sarawak Laksa, Mee Siam, Chicken Rice and pastas which are old favourites whenever we visit the bistro.

I was there on Saturday afternoon and had their Salad Nicoise (RM22). IT WAS AMAZING.

Very fresh sashimi quality tuna, seared just nicely, on a bed of green beans, new potatoes, a perfect, wobbly soft boiled egg, with honey mustard aoli as well as an earthy balsamic dressing... so goood.

Yesterday I ordered the same thing at Pizza Uno Centerpoint (RM18.50) and it was FAR FAR behind the quality of Alexis's. The dressing was too sour, too sweet and they were so skimping on the tuna, which wasn't as fresh too.

I didn't have my camera with me or I'd take a pic and blog about it.

A review just in time. I'll be there tonight and hope they will have the pudding!

babe - yeah, tiramisu is also an old favourite but I must admit this choc steam pudding is fast replacing it since it's so light tasting.

the yummy dummies - sorry, no review for JB spots yet as I seem to only go there for quick trips.

may - give the desserts in Alexis a try, yummy stuff.

meiyen - yeah, that place is so dark all the time. I changed the ISO on my camera and the white balance to get this pix. Those settings work well for low light conditions.

wandernut - everything always taste yummy at Alexis. So far, yet to have any complains whenever we eat there.

fulltime mom - hope u enjoy yr meal. That place is super dim at night.

One of my favourite old-time haunts as well, the one on Telawi. Must-haves include their milky latte (particularly great to wind down a long day/nght), banoffee pie and bread pudding. Food-wise, I heard that their old staples had slipped compared to the early days.

waaah this is one must have dessert! what a killer pudding! Killer for my waistline!!! if there is any left!

boo_licious said...

mycoffee - yeah, food is not as fantastic as last time but still not too bad.

audrey - it's kinda like a steamed choc cake. Nice esp when it's warm.
