This is a deli for foodies, a deli for a new generation of deli lovers, with a hankering for contemporized deli dining, and an emphasis on great, fresh ingredients, with orders taken and served by a one man show. The place is small, neat and unpretentious.
The chicken pate, hand-sliced into succulent shards, with bits of foie gras scattered around its pink body, encased in a respectable lightly toasted wholemeal bread, is what we came here for. Puckering up over sour pickles and biting into a very healthy chunk of this sandwich brings back a cherished old deli nostalgia. The chicken pate is really living up to expectations. What can I say, the menu, read off a chalkboard on the wall is nascent, the pickles still pickling and the waiter still running about serving. Today really makes a nice change from restaurant lunching. I am glad I came.

Our foursome, eager to taste everything again, eat with the innocence of the days when calories were counted, but not much, and cholesterol hadn’t been invented. Sides of crisp chunks of french fries with the potato skin still on them, make a delicious amuse-bouche.This place serves french fries with almost everything.
A RM17.00 portion of the dark, grown-up, deliciously meaty duck leg confit is enough for a couple of bites each. We fight over who gets to chew the fat off the bone.
Duck leg Confit- RM17.00
And now we’re on to sharing a sensational mushroom sandwich, thickly primitive and shockingly tasty. Then somebody gets the wise idea of adding greens to our predominately carnivorous meal and we order the salads. The baby spinach salad looked like a morning after the first snow. The Nicoise salad looked like a garden in spring. How pretty is that?
The Mushroom Sandwich- RM17.00
The Baby Spinach Salad (RM15.00) – when nobody was looking, it snowed in KL!
The Nicoise Salad (RM15.00) – Spring on my plate..
And then the sun rose over the land, spilling its yellow rays all over the place!
The Chicken Pate Sandwich (RM20.00) comes with a generous portion of french fries
The Pithivier (RM10.00) served with ice-cream.
This tastes like flaky, buttery croissant on the outside, with a rich, dense, sweet sugee in the middle. So very delicious!
Ice-creams in all the hot flavours – creamy and thick these were only RM5 per scoop.
Dunk you marshmallows in coffee (RM7.00 per cup) for added flavour!
