Ristretto1

cosy interior, thanks to Ristretto for inviting my friend and I for this coffee tasting. They are selling their hot latte, cappuccino and flat white for only RM3. This cafe is located in a relatively new area in Mont Kiara, very near to Plaza Mont Kiara.

Ristretto2-honeydewMatcha

coffee, only RM3

and my honeydew matcha, RM12 (fresh honeydew blended with green tea powder), RM12, very yummy, complemented by natural sweetness from the honeydew, i didn’t order coffee as i not not really a coffee person :P

Ristretto3-lamb

Provencale Lamb, RM35, the mash potato is thick and nice, the lamb is of harder texture as they are chargrilled then boiled for 6 hours. This is not the fork tender type of lambshank, there is definitely some bite to this :)

Ristretto4

black board of type of coffee they have for “Baby” coffee¬†connoisseur: Green tea¬†latte, babycinno and hot chocolate, and they are some for “noob”: Affogato, cappucinno etc, and they are some for hardcore coffee lover: double ristretto etc

Ristretto5-strawberrySponge

strawberry sponge is yummy, although just simple sponge with strawberry jam in between, RM8

Ristretto6

carrot cake is really good as well, RM8

Ristretto7-cakes

desserts

Ristretto8-wega

Ristretto is using a naked portafilter, it is a bottomless portafilter “chopped”, or cut off, so that the entire bottom is visible and thus called naked. The one on the right in the above picture is a naked portafilter and the one on the left is a commonly used one. Julian of Ristretto showed us the technique of using a naked portafilter… blonding… tiger stripes(meaning the coffee flows down in a shade of blonde and brown resembling tiger stripes)

Ristretto9

the remain of ground coffee from portafiler, it should resemble a soft cake, with some moisture.

For this invited review, Ristretto waived out the drinks cost for us :)
