La Casa - Verve Suites Shops (Mont Kiara)

What a spectacular start on this Saturday. Everything went on right and I couldn't have asked for more at La Casa during this food review. A pat on the shoulder for getting it crystal clear with the direction. After turning left into Desa Sri Hartamas, it is all the way to the end of the road before turning left and the next first right turn. Drive along and as you see La Casa. turn to the basement parking on the left or park along the street. Arriving way earlier, I parked in front of the row of shops, walked into La Casa, met Ms May the owner and sat at the dining area sipping the creamy and aromatic cappuccino while admiring the homely, artistic and truly cosy ambiance. Carefully thought and put together, the lighting not too bright, wooden fixtures and quirky furnishings replete with eye-catching cushions and a bookshelf in a spacious 1,900 sq ft interior and a 500 sq ft alfresco dining area. 

La Casa specialises in Western and Italian dishes with Asian specials that can be requested by diners, with a clientele that’s especially enamoured with the delectable range of home-made cakes and pastries – complemented with artisan coffee that will leave an memorable aftertaste that’s uniquely La Casa even as. From salad to pasta and pizza, an emphasis is placed on natural flavours with healthy fare prepared from scratch without MSG, chemicals and artificial flavourings. Founder May was a web designer and music teacher who simply wanted a place to call her own that served hearty meals with friendly service that enhances the dining experience. Certainly La Casa is where I want to return to sit outside all by myself, tuck into a meal and stare at the sky. So-so that good the atmosphere is.

Now, as the dishes came by one after the other, tasting was essential to speak the mind. More to that, its the beautiful plating and presentation. Take a look at these dishes and correct me if I'm wrong.

Seriously, I can't tell which were the ones I loved. In fact difficult to narrow down to even the top three. These dishes were appealing, pleasurable and divine and the desserts heavenly and top notch. For someone who skip breakfast and even if I do, its usually noodles or nasi lemak. Over at LaCasa, the Western inspired dishes were a good change. As featured in the menu, each and every element in the dishes worked well together. Unlike the Asian dishes with big bold flavours, these were subtle yet you feel the taste. The fresh ingredients especially the fresh colourful fruits and the whipped cream particularly stood out according to my liking. And for the generous portions, its worth the price. At least for me. The only thing is that desserts were quite sweet. But please, its about individual taste preferences. I'm not a dessert queen and I hardly take sugar. Says it all I suppose.

La Casa you shouldn't miss and a must try. Take it from a foodie who have dined in many places. Love is the ambiance, love is the food and love is the attentive service.
