Nasi Lemak Creme Brulee @ Ecole P, Damansara Uptown
Malaysians love their nasi lemak. That is the first thing we miss each time we travel overseas and will be the first thing we eat as soon as we touch down back in Malaysia. But there is this someone who loves it too much until he recreates it into a dessert resulting in a strange but intriguing Nasi Lemak Crème Brulee. I’ve seen this dessert a lot on Instagram so I told Darling that we must try it no matter what. Curiosity kills the cat but it won’t kill me :P
With that mission in mind, we made our way to Ecole P in Damansara Uptown one fine evening.
We were extremely lucky that day as we found an empty parking spot right smack in front of the café. If you know this area well, you’ll know that finding an empty parking spot here is quite tricky so with that part settled we happily made our way upstairs.
Woots. What’s with all these?
Once inside I totally understand the motivational quotes on the staircase. Ecole P café is actually modelled after a classroom, complete with chalkboards and all reminding me of my school years.
I saw this cute duck bag at the side of our table and took a peek to see a pencil case and some books inside.
Opened the pencil case and saw cutleries in it. Haha. Genius!
Guess what? The books in the bag are actually the menu here! Very, very smart move of the owners. They must have really loved school. Hehe.
Okay, enough about school. Now let’s makan.
I ordered Hot Chocolate for Ethan and the milk comes in a feeding bottle! LoL! He enjoyed adding his own milk into his drink. That kept him occupied for a while there :D I took a sip of that chocolate drink and oh my, it is really good chocolate here giving it a very rich and thick chocolaty taste.
My Discipline TEAcher (RM9)
I love how they name their tea series after the various teachers in school. Chamomile, goji, red dates, dried longan and orange is simply refreshing and soothing. Served with honey in a baby bottle this is too cute to resist.
Citrus Salad (RM9.90)
We start off our meal with this Citrus Salad. Do you see what I see? I saw Hawflakes! Do you still eat hawflakes today? I don’t. Not because I don’t like it but because my mummy doesn’t buy this for me anymore :P
But having hawflakes in this salad is brilliant! Besides the hawflakes, this zesty mixed salad is dressed in goji dressing and tossed with dried fruits, orange and chicken. A refreshing start to our dinner that evening.
Our next order came in a tiffin carrier to our surprise.
Pumpkin Soup (RM9.90)
We opened the tiffin container to a warm oven roasted pumpkin soup with cranberry with bits of salted egg yolk and beef bacon added into the soup giving it an awesome flavour. Soup was served with a slice of garlic bread.
Coke & Sprite Chicken Wing (RM13.90)
We got another tiffin container when we ordered their chicken wings. I’m familiar with Coke chicken – slow braised chicken wings in coca cola and always cook this for any potluck party but this is my first time eating Sprite chicken. Actually to tell you the truth, I was not aware I was having Sprite chicken. All I know I was sitting there wondering why are there two shades of chicken wings served before me. Only towards the end of my meal did I asked the person who took my orders and was told my order of Coke chicken comes automatically with Sprite chicken wings too. LoL. Both are equally tender and flavorful so I don’t mind at all :D
Fish a la Laksa (RM16.90)
This is a MUST TRY if you ever dine here. Spaghetti cooked in thick assam laksa broth and served with generous pan fried black tilapia is simply awesome! The fish person in me is extremely satiated.
I don’t remember the price for this but what is worth mentioning is the jaw dropping coating for this chicken. The chicken is actually coated with crushed fish biscuits. Can you see that single fish biscuit in the picture above? That is my favourite snack back in my school days and they actually use this for their chicken chop.
Now, here’s the part we have been waiting for the entire evening. The Nasi Lemak Creme Brulee.
Nasi Lemak Creme Brulee (RM10.90)
The first time I heard about this, my mind went ‘impossible!’. How can you make creme brulee to taste like nasi lemak? But apparently they can and they did.
Infusing local ingredients such as pandan, santan and a hint of ginger into this French dessert to combine the best of both world. Served with berry sambal sauce complete with fried anchovies, peanuts and sliced cucumber. You have just got to try this at least once in your lifetime. If you live nearby then you can try it more than once lah but I’m just saying that this is THE one dessert that you might want to bring your outstation guests to try out. I would recommend for you to share this though. Darling and I can’t finish it.
I am really impressed with their culinary creations here. The food served is mostly one of a kind. You can’t get them elsewhere but here.
Weekdays, 11am-3pm, 6pm-10pm (closed on Thursdays). Weekends (Saturday-Sunday), 11am-10pm.
