Pre Valentine Dinner @ Alexis Bistro & Wine Bar @ Jln Ampang

Posted by Taufulou | Labels: , , , | Posted On Saturday, February 14, 2009 at 2:08 AM

A dinner that I am looking forward for with my close friend of all. With the dinner arrangement that I have made, she thought of changing places and agreed with her. As the place I have not been before. We have the same taste and thoughts on things like food, fashion and others. That is why, this dinner is special. When I reached there, I thought that the restaurant was closed for private functions with huge black curtain covered up the whole entrance and have to try to peek in there is it available. Then just walk in and found our reservation and to my surprise, it was like a VIP seats to me. The first row in the middle directly in front of the band,stage area. I am just enjoying my moment there. As I read on the card on the table that tonight there will be a Jazz band playing in there by 'Zailan Razak Project'. Not too fancy about jazz but definitely I go along with the flow like I am not a fan of Kenny G but a good sleeping doze.

With their nice dim lighting's and a candle light on the table, makes it a very nice environment to celebrate a special occasion with some one special or close friend. With its nice and romantic environment, the area had change to a better lighting where after 10pm they have make the lights to the dimmest and make sure that the place you are seating is the candle light shining on the table.

This was the original booking area with the seats on the sofa, but I sure do not have complain on my current seating's.

Here comes the food that we choose. Start of with this drink called 'Baby Love'. A very nice drink I would recommend, with taste of oranges mix with some raspberry and it is priced at RM19

Start off with soup of the day was 'Mushroom Soup'. A very very good mushroom soup. They blend the mushroom in there and cooked in it. The soup was not too thick or watery and was not too salty. Perfectly cook with strong taste of the mushroom. As it added some olive oil and need not add any more papper or black papper. Serve with a piece of Garlic Bread. The waiter was good in arranging it as I ordered one serving and he divided to 2 servings. The soup is price at only RM15

Started the main course with 'Chic Escalope'. I was complaining when I saw the serving. 'Ha...Just like dat ah'. Never mind. Try first. Please do not look down on it. The taste was absolutely good. Nice and deeply fried, and the crust of the chicken taste so nice as it is covered with garlic, herbs and you squeeze the lemon on it. Just perfectly go along with the added sour taste to bring up the flavour of the herbs and garlic. It was just perfectly cook with golden brown colour crust. Crispy on the side soft on the inside. Not bad for the pricing, RM 35

This is the second order. 'Lamb Rack'. When it was served out, I told my friend, 'Aiya, how to fit my stomach, so small only. Sei!!! in my thought'. With is high pricing, I believe it would have something special on it as I order it Medium Rare. Please let me tell you, when I was cutting it, I could feel the meet was juicy and soft and cut into small pieces and one for me and the other one for my friend to try also. She started first and she keep nodding her head. Means it is good. The meat is so soft and along with some of the lamb fats, it just melts with the gravy along with it. Not near to a steak but for lamb, it is just good. Served with Some pumpkins and garlic kangkung if not mistaken but I still think it is over priced. RM63

After main course, I must have desert. It is my culture. To close the meal of the day with satisfaction with the sweet,sour,salty and bitter. When to proceed to the ordering of the desert I was very disappointed as our favourite Tiramisu was sold out as it is their signature cake. Can said that one of the best I have tried so far. So ended up ordering another alternative which was choose by my friend. It is 'Zucotto Dome'. A great cake. With the walnut flakes and pieces with its soft sponge cake in it and covered with the fresh cream(not too strong taste of milk, perfect taste for cakes) and the end of the tip with some chocolate chip pieces. The first bite of the cake, melts in your mouth, as the fresh cream just melted and the sponge cake which is so soft makes your closing of the meals perfect. RM 11

With the cake been served, must not miss their 'Cafe Mocha' which I crave into. With the bitter sweet taste and sugarless, it taste the best, she cannot take without sugar so I put in two brown sugar cubes. A perfect taste for it. With the cakes and coffee. Great combo to go along. Of course with cappuccino or latte that is the best but mocha. Is just as good as ever. RM 10.

After the Jazz band started they do not served free water anymore. Purchase one and it is RM13 for 1 bottle of mineral water 'Still' of 500ml. 'What the heck!'. The bottle looks unique.Did not know until paying the bills.

This was the jazz band of the night, 'Zailan Razak Project'. One of the bass guitarist is a ex lecturer of local university around the year of 2002. Great band.

Do not say that this guy is old. He is Luiz Prakasam(hopefully I spelled correct). A great drummer I would say, as the bass guitarist mention that he had played in Europe, other parts of the world and for a great jazz band.

A special appearance of 'Dia Fadilah'(hopefully I spelled Correct), which I do not know who is that but she is a great live performance singer. She has a good voice.

With one of the best night ever, with a nice romantic surroundings and a great live band to look for, what can I ask for more.

~Happy Valentine's Day~

With great staff services and live band with romantic surroundings, the total bills comes to RM190. I would say, reasonable.
