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.


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 ­čśŤ


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 ­čÖé


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


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


carrot cake is really good as well, RM8




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)


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 ­čÖé
