Greenhouse by Muir, Jalan Ampang

Located at Jalan Nipah off Jln Ampang, Greenhouse by Muir isn't new to locals, but if you haven't visit this glass-house-like cafe and restaurant, is time to do so!



I've been visiting Greenhouse by Muir so many times in the past few months due to friends keep admitting into Gleneagles Hospital. Let's not talk about the bad luck stuff okay. And yes the place is located beside Gleneagles, be sure to keep an eye to the building beside, that's where Greenhouse by Muir is. 


This is Greenhouse by Muir
Limited parking space tho.




The last time I went, the restaurant upstairs already started operating.
It is called BRYCG New Orlean Cuisine, but I haven't try the place yet!



Greenhouse by Muir consists a few different concept of café and restaurants. There's this café called Even Dough, which you can order your coffee, tea, food and desserts right at their counter located beside entrance.

If you're a bread/coffee person, Even Dough is the place for you.




Kuroshio Market
Japanese cuisine

Then, after you passed by Even Dough counter, you will saw this Kuroshio Market, which sells Japanese food. Fresh, but a tad bit pricey in my opinion. The place start operating at 11a.m, afternoon break 3-6p.m. So be sure to get there during lunch time or dinner time, but not tea time. They sell all types of Japanese food, wide selection they have there but not really fancy ones. 



And then there's this BRYCG New Orleans Cuisine located upstairs, which I've never been to, serve lunch and dinner in western style. Greenhouse by Muir is such a brilliant idea to have your meals at when you have no idea where to eat at as they cater for all types of appetites - be it western, japanese or just some light tea time snacks. 




I've been there for more than 5 times, so will just gather all the food that I've ate in this one post, some I've already forgot what they are called, and definitely can't remember their price. So bear with me kay? Start with the drinks:


Chonchocshun Iced Tea
RM13.25

Mistakenly ordered this on my first visit. It was during brunch so I can understand how blurry I was, anyway I totally do not enjoy white chocolate and steamed milk tea... Like what? What is white chocolate tea? I don't get it at all lol. Initially wanted to order chocolate drinks, must've overlooked the Iced Tea label on far top, I'm a sucker for fancy names, Chonchocshun sounded like something I definitely will order. Hahahaha.




Cafe Latte, RM11.66

Their coffee is quite decent, to my liking. Really like how smooth their cafe latte tasted, and yet not too bitter. Please don't ask me why their pricing ended with weird decimal number, I have no idea too. Maybe they calculated the GST altogether.



There's another drink that I would highly recommend BUT I didn't knew I never take a photo of it at all! OMGWHYYYYYY!!!! But anyway, here's the name that you need to remember when you order drinks at Even Dough, the drink is called:
HUNNYHUNNY

Omg ever since Fatin told me about this drink, I've been ordering it on my every visit. It is an intense honey lemon flower tea. I really love how tasteful it is, and refreshing at the same time. Give it a try, you will like it.



Next, will like to talk about food ordered from Kuroshio Market. You choose/take food that you want and pay at the counter. It's like grocery shopping but at Kuroshio Market, it is food shopping. I gave their Salmon Sashimi a try, and gosh the freshness is worth every cent I paid!


Freshly cut Salmon Sashimi
Look at its thickness! And the fats!
Less than RM20


Then the makis which I've no idea how much they cost...


But they surely look good right?





On a fine Saturday brunch, me and Jean and Fatin had these
Guess which is mine! Hahahahaha.

Do visit Kuroshio Market when they preparing for the first crowd of customers as that's where you get to taste those freshly fried tempuras and other dishes. I really like their butterfish, and it's like around RM9! Their fried butterfish is so fresh and soft at the same time is totally my type of fish dishes. Can't wait to go back and have their fried butterfish again!




Next will be dishes from Even Dough Café and Bakery:

Eggs Named Benedict, RM15.90


This is the first time I saw there's bonito flakes on western breakfast. It does add different kinda taste to an usual eggs + toast + ham breakfast, but this Eggs Named Benedict isn't eggs benedict at all! It is one tricky name they have there, my feeling was being cheated!!! LOL. I was looking forward to have eggs benedict as brunch but...




Really English Breakfast, RM15.90

Another fusion combination of edamame, scramble egges, sausages and toasts, with wasabi sauce. I prefer this over Eggs Named Benedict, at least I won't have my feeling cheated. Hahaha.





Walnut Danish

What took me by surprise from Even Dough Bakery, is this Walnut Danish. Normally I would imagine that walnut danish is some hard like rock and tasteless pastries, and to my surprise, Even Dough's walnut danish is so light, soft, crispy, sweet and crunchy! Can you imagine like some galaxies bursting in your mouth? That's basically how I felt for each bite of these walnut danish.





Custard Buns

On the other hand, these custard buns turn out to be a sad case. They're a bit hard, and more tasteless. I kinda regret buying these buns tho. T_T




Last but not least, desserts:


Black Sesame

If you like adventurous flavours of cakes, Even Dough cafe definitely can satisfy your appetite with this black sesame cake! It is so soft, moist, each bite is full of black sesame and I can't find any reason why you will dislike this cake! Definitely a must try for those who have a thing for black sesame anything!




Chocolate Caramel Cake on the left and right side is a cake that doesn't taste good hence I don't remember its name

Did I tell you that the pastry chef of Even Dough was previously chef of big name hotel? Yes! Their Chocolate Caramel Cake is totally on point I can't tell you how rich it is and how addicted I was I'm craving for it like NOW!!! I want to have it now!!! But the coconut mango something cake (I don't remember already! It's gonna be 2 months soon since I had these!) isn't something I would know how to appreciate. I think I'm gonna stick back to black sesame and chocolate caramel cake.




Greenhouse by Muir is really a nice place with nice food, I enjoyed their al-fresco area when it's not too hot and hazy. Give it a try when you're around KL area. I shall end this post with a photo of mine lololol:

I remember this happened on 1st of August!
How time flies!
