After a brief look at the Afterwerk Scott Garden menu, we find Afterwerk key forte is its meat dishes that pair well with alcohol.

We start to taste out some of the dishes for dinner which the first; is the popular Piggy Ribs Half Slab (RM 45.00). We notice that an order of this dish is a must have as we watched almost every table had this dish. Best with a cold beer.

The next dish is the Pan Seared Salmon (RM 38.00) - Salmon is one of the most healthy foods around and it is simple to just pan seared to retains its taste. This dish is served with a spicy capers sauce with a selection of vegetables and mash potatoes.

The next mains that we tasted is the Chicken Chop (RM 22.00); which you can choose either with the Black Pepper sauce or the mushroom sauce. We ordered the Black Pepper sauce that goes well with any grilled meat.

Porkyholics residing in Old Klang Road are in for a treat with many porcine dishes at Afterwerk to choose from; where our next dish is the AfterWerk Pork Chop (RM 32.00). Grilled to a nice char, it is served with mashed potatoes and a selection of poached vegetables.

Bangsar Cafe | Table9 Cafe & Kitchen @ Jalan Telawi 3 Bangsar Kuala Lumpur

There are many cafes situated in Kuala Lumpur City Centre and Bangsar that offer tantalising all-day brunch fare, quality coffee and tea, as well as sinfully sweet desserts in charming and unique settings. 

Today we get to taste out the new friendly Bangsar neighbourhood cafe that serves Italian food with Korean cafe inspiration. The owners of Table9 Cafe & Kitchen are from Korea and the master behind these secret recipes! For the cafe hoppers, you may want to try out Table9 Cafe

Table9 Cafe & Kitchen Address
21, Jalan Telawi 3, 59100 Bangsar
Table9 Cafe & Kitchen Facebook: http://facebook.com/table9c

Our review started off with a simple order of the Japanese Cucumber (15.00) that is served with a spicy sesame dressing. This dish is served chilled and the thinly sliced cucumber was crisp to bite into with a mix of a slightly spicy taste. A refreshing start or as a palate cleanser dish.

At Table9 their main mission is to serve delicious dishes while using healthy ingredients and seasoning to make one of the most joyous healthy salad offerings as in the Sauteed Mix Mushrooms Salad (RM18.00) that is served with Grana Padano cheese and are lightly dressed with a Balsamic dressing that gives a slight sourish taste to this salad.

The Table9 All Day Breakfast (RM25.00) serves with chicken sausage, beef bacon, grilled tomato, sauteed mushrooms, hashed potatoes, for the eggs, you can choose either scrambled or sunny side up egg and toast with butter and Jam (ours as above picture came with a french toast (top up RM1.00 and for a top up of RM2 you will be able to order it with pancake) 

The next dish is the BLT Sandwich (RM24.00). which is serves with a thin slice of turkey bacon, lettuce and tomato on a toast. 

For the meat, we had the Chicken Jager Schnitzel (RM29.00). It is a traditional German dish made out of cutlet of chicken meat and is served with a mushroom gravy. To add a special taste, the chef has also included a slice of lime to add a distinct flavour to this dish.

Pasta is a versatile dish that is easy to cook but in the wrong hand it might be a total mess but at Table9 the Jalapenos Pasta (RM24.00) was done to the right perfection as the pasta was just the right texture that we like.

Our second pasta is the Table9 Picante Seafood Pasta (RM28.00). This pasta was cooked with an array of seafood which includes the mussels, white squids and prawn. It has a slightly sourish and a spicy taste which went well with the seafood combination.

The last mains that we had is the Table9 Picante Cream Risotto (RM28.00). I am not a real fan of Risotto, if you are a fan of Risotto and loves seafood with a spicy undertone, this might be a good option for you.

For desserts, the Bingsu is a must try. I love the super fine and flaky milk flavoured shave ice. It literary melts in the mouth. We were told that the machine that shaved out this super fine shaving; is very expensive and fully imported. The first Bingsu is the Espresso Bingsu (RM15.00). The espresso was served in a separate container and is poured over the shaved ice. 

Next, we had the Tomato Bingsu which was highly recommended by the owner. I kind of like this as it is served with a special tomato puree. There are in total 8 different flavours that you can choose from.

Our last one was the Oreo Bingsu which is served with the crush Oreo topping with drizzles of condensed milk. 

If you are looking for a relaxing afternoon with an aromatic cup of freshly brewed coffee (Korean beans) and some Instagrammable dishes, Table9 might be a good option to start with.
