Pipers @ Mont Kiara & La Taverna @ 10 Boulevard

May 27, 2013

Checking out a couple of cafes, starting with Mont Kiaras Pipers, a nice neighborhood hangout for casual lunches & leisurely dinners.

Pipers luscious layers: hand-picked crab meat, chopped avocados, tomatoes & roe-topped cream combine for flavorsome comfort cuisine.

Wild mushrooms with crispy noodles & mizuna leaves. Meat-free but nonetheless satisfying.

Asparagus risotto with a welcome surprise: crunchy battered spears & onion rings.

Wine & cocktails are available to accompany Pipers well-prepared nourishment.
Note: Pipers replaced what was formerly Mont Kiaras Savory Bistro. Its also a performance arts venue, sometimes hosting classical music recitals & open-mic gigs.

Next up, La Taverna, tucked away somewhere off ... the Sprint highway? Or is it Kayu Ara? Damansara Jaya? Bandar Utama?

Tapas are among La Tavernas attractions. Asparagus & scrambled eggs with beef bacon might be something found in a workmans eatery on a Madrid backstreet.

For the carnivore: Beef, marinated in balsamic vinegar, braised in red wine.

La Tavernas lamb cheeseburger boasts a house-made 100-gram patty. Request a runny egg.

Cocktails & wine are all available at La Taverna too.
