In May 11th 2011 I have blog about Ben’s, since then I didn’t visit the place. Now I’m back to do some catch up... Ben’s flagship cafe’s under BIG, Ben’ menu concentrates on international cuisine, East and Western main courses, delicious snacks and luscious desserts. When you at Ben’s it will gives you the homely feel with high ceilings and contemporary vintage furnishing, a great place to enjoy with family and friends.

The Menu

Something interesting at Ben’: A bunch of card on the table that serves as conversation starters, perfect remedy for those awkward silences during a date or whatever. Overall the price is quite decent as most things will fall around the RM 20 zone.

Iced Latte, Chocolate Milkshake & Macadamia Cheesecake Sundae
Soft Shell Crab Spaghetti - OK!
Nasi Ayam Rendang - so so only,
ask for Sambal but dont forget to add in the sugar syrup for better taste

Overall: Nice modern yet cosy ambience, friendly service, BUT nothing really bad, just that there are a few hits and misses on the food.....

Basil Thai Nudle Bar

อาหารไทย: Thai Cuisine: Thai Basil Nudle Bar @ Bangsar is a charming restaurant located at the ground floor of Bangsar Shopping Village. The restaurant is pretty cool as it’s located at the corner of the shopping complex with beautiful views if you were look out from inside. Ive been to the restaurant couple of times but I will never get bored due to the restaurant is very spacious comes with cool environment and bright.

Thai Basil Nudle Bar is suitable for working people, families gathering and love birds… We were at the restaurant during one of the night and found the place is still the same since its operation. Had a good time there although just for a quick dinner, I felt great! Overall I give this place thumbs up simply because I love spicy, sour cuisine. Not to forget the service is pretty OK!

Coke - Light and Original!
Tom Yam Chicken - Tasty!
Green Curry Chicken - Delicious...
Pad Thai! Always my FAV!
Menu - Colorful

Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie

After weeks of delays, we finally made it to Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie... In the quiet streets off Jalan Imbi, you will find Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie, a warm and lovely French-style bakery and café where you can savour soft, warm and superbly fresh breads and pastries while enjoying a cup of coffee. At Levain, breads and pastries are baked all day using natural yeast, in a traditional stone oven which imparts a unique flavour and texture to the breads and pastries.

Main entrance

We felt as though we at Cameron Highlands for a while as the colonial-style bungalows dot the landscape complete the whole dream... Levain is really beautiful, classy and cosy – love the spaciousness, the high ceilings and aristocratic feel. The ambience alone was well worth the excursion, not to mention if you’re a bread lover and seeking for a good cuppa coffee to perk the day up.

High ceiling
The counter, you have to queue for your turn..

Inside, families and young couples dined; and every table is occupied. A good sign as it was lunch time on a Sunday. However, the place attracted more of the locals compare to expats; with 90% being Chinese. Surprising, considering that LeVain Boulangerie’s menu only has bread, buns, pastries, cakes & pasta. Locals are actually appreciating good breads & even finding it an acceptable alternative for a main meal.

Below: Our order... Delicious!

LeVain Boulangerie’s unique factor offering is its stone oven baked pastries. The range and diversity of their breads, pastries, sandwiches and cakes were awesomely impressive.
