La Café Mémoire, TTDI

TTDI is such a good place for cafe hopping, and surprisingly good food from those cafe that I went with my friends too. Thanks for the intro by Freda, managed to try La Café Mémoire and I really love the environment and also the food of this cafe. If you see me visit that cafe more than once, there must be something I really love about that place, for this case, is the food!

Located at an upstair lot on a street that not much people passes by, is hard to spot La Café Mémoire from afar, hence I believe that most of their customers are attracted via viva voce of how good this cafe is, just like how we were first intro to.

Welcome to the The Cafe of Memory

Not really an attractive sight I know

Main element of the cafe? Wood of course!

If you have something for wood and d.i.y furniture, this cafe is definitely your style. Lead by the head chef Brian who had mastered his culinary skill in both desserts and main courses, alongside with his family, they are the one who running the café's business together hand in hand, I guess this kinda explains a lot the homely feeling surrounding the cafe itself.

Drooling over the desserts

Hand written menu on wall as decoration

I went there a few times, and everytime I left that place with a satisfying heart and tummy. Hence if you're looking for some Italian cuisine with good desserts, this place definitely able to fulfilled all your needs. 

First and foremost, gotta intro their coffee, which I didn't know it'll be served as pretty like this:

Caffe Alexander, RM13

This glass of wine-look-alike coffee which is a novelty drink of La Café Mémoire: double espresso, Bols Crème de Cacao Brown with hazelnut syrup, serve chilled. The first sip as if I had taken alcohol, the taste is strong but the more you drink it the more smooth it became and I find that I like this mixture of double espresso! Can pretend tipsy in the end hahaha. Definitely worth a try for coffee+alcohol lover.

Macam a bit tipsy dy right? Definitely not my blusher! Haha.

Smoked Salmon Salad

Mixed with fresh and crispy vegetables, this plate of smoked salmon salad satisfied my salmon cravings. With a hint of tangy saucing, this appetizer really opens up ones appetite and prepared for more yummy food following.

Mushroom Soup, RM10

Doesn't look like your usual mushroom soup as it is more creamier than norm, loaded with chunks of chinese mushrooms, shiitake, shimeji mushrooms, and oysters. This bowl of mushroom soup offered you a more oriental taste and yet paired with slices of artisanal bread, it is another perfect appetizer that I really love.

Escargot with Cheese Sauce, RM18

Forever succumbed to the word "cheese". Sautéed escargot with shimeji mushrooms served with butter herbs, cheese sauce and brioche bun. The bun is very good in soaking the sauce up, paired with escargots and shimeji mushroom, each spoonful is creamy and delicious. Order this for days that you're not feeling any main course and you'll have a filled tummy before you knew it.

Here comes the main course that I've tried. If you don't know, La Café Mémoire offers homemade fettuccine as a healthier choice when it comes to pasta selection. We tried both the spaghetti and homemade fettuccine and yes, homemade fettuccine definitely taste better.

Seafood Aglio Olio, RM15

Chicken Bolognese Handmade Fettuccine

Chose Aglio Olio and Bolognese for our pasta dishes that night due to the creamy mushroom soup which kinda refrain us from ordering more cream based food. These two pasta dishes doesn't really impressed me much but I've forgotten to take photo of the creamy bacon pasta during my 3rd visit which the pasta tasted heavenly! Me and Amanda were like OMG THIS IS SO DELICIOUS BUT WE AGREED TO SHARE HOW NOT ENOUGH kinda feeling. Lol. Order their creamy bacon pasta if you're big fan of creamy pasta like me!

Last but not least, desserts time. Before Chef Brian introduced main courses in La Café Mémoire, this cafe used to serve only coffee and desserts, hence you can tell how good and special their desserts are gonna be! First and foremost, the house specialty:

Nutty Bacon Sundae, RM11

I can never imagine ice creams with crispy bacon but Chef Brian did, and it's a big hit! With vanilla ice cream, calamansi ice cream, caramelised mixed nuts, finished off with caramel sauce and of course, crispy bacon strips! The marriage between savoury bacons, sweet vanilla, sourish calamansi and crunchy nuts, each bite brings you a new sensation! Make sure you mixed well of everything in a bite or else the calamansi ice cream is gonna leave you frowning in sour face at the end of the cup!

Chocolate Soufflé with Raspberry Sorbet, RM15

An à la minute handcrafted dessert, this chocolate soufflé is another perfect mixture of sweet and sour, hot and cold. Its fluffy baked hot Valrhona chocolate soufflé tasted soft from the inside, with raspberry sorbet dip into the middle of it, the taste of these two gonna let soufflé lovers floating to heaven.

Life can't be better when you have good drinks, good food, and good companions to dine with!

These crazy girls made my dining experience goes happy and crazy all the time!
