Food: La Cafe Memoire @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI)

So, it's not that rare to find such beautifully and uniquely decorated cafes nowadays, with more and more cafes mushrooming at literally any space available. Then, what makes La Cafe Memoire @ TTDI so special? Well, they have put all their stakes on their yummy, delicious food. This little hideout located upstairs is the brainchild of Brian Liew, the owner who is passionate about his food.

Here, you can get ready to try variations of your favourite dishes as Brian always tries to add a twist to all the items on the menu.

The interior of the shop which is so neat and I liked how they recycle the crates as furnitures. Pretty cute concept.

Some of the selection of cakes and pastries available.

Here are some of the drinks we had that night.

Smoked Duck Salad (RM 9)
This salad was so good, maybe because it came with slices of pan fried smoked duck. Here, they make their signature dressing from apples, garlic and chillies and drizzled with some olive oil as well as Balsamico vinegar.

Creamy Bacon Pasta (RM 14)
This pasta certainly looks like carbonara, however don't be mistaken, it's not. The cream sauce is made fresh and some seasoning of salt, pepper and parsley is added. Bear in mind that no egg yolk goes into this which differentiates it from your traditional carbonara. Their fettucine is the main highlight here though, as they handmade it with all purpose flour, eggs and egg yolks.

Seafood Aglio Olio (Spaghetti- RM 15, Fettucine- RM 18)
Yums! Although this was a bit dry, I think it wasn't that bad especially since their seafood is quite a lot.

Japanese Curry Pasta (Spaghetti- RM 14.50, Fettucine- RM 17.50)
A different twist from your normal Japanese curry. This is a drier version which is not so spicy. And, guess what, they used brandy here instead of red wine as that will produce a fruity taste instead.

Pork Chop (RM 25)
This pork chop is cooked with Mongolian seasoning powder which is pretty close to five spiced powder. Look at the thick, juicy pork chops. They even weigh their pork chops and it is 200-220 g per serving. 

Mussels and Fries (RM 30)
My favourite seafood of all time are mussels so, this was my favourite of the night. The mussels were sauteed in white wine and the sauce is made using brandy, butter, onions, salt, pepper and lemon juice. The mild alcohol taste and sweetness of the sauce definitely went well with the mussels. 

Tiramisu Cake (RM 9)

 Mango Coconut Tart (RM 10)

Nutty Bacon Sundae (RM 11)
This is definitely not your ordinary dessert. I'd never thought that bacon could go so well with ice cream. Well, a lot of effort goes into making this. First the bacon is pan grilled then baked in the oven. The vanilla ice cream and calamansi sorbet really compliments the salty, crispy bacon. This had basically all the tastes you can imagine; salty, sour, sweet.
