Food, life, and fun in my "kampung,"(village), KL (Kuala Lumpur). Did I mention "food?"

Neroteca

By Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

A couple of Sundays ago, Allan was off in Bali and I was at a loose end for Sunday breakfast, so I took myself off to Neroteca.

Situated just off Cangkat Raja Chulan, very near Little Havana, it isn't exactly in the most visible spot in town. However, you can't deny it's central location. It's smack dab in the Golden Crescent/Triangle.

Neroteca is one of those places which has a very comfortable welcoming interior. Great interior decor. Casual, contemporary, it's one of those places which are becoming more and more visible in Kuala Lumpur. A place which many people will say makes them feel like "I don't think we're in KL anymore, Toto" but in a good way! ;-)

Sitting at the breakfast bar and reading the Sunday papers was a fantastic way to spend a lazy Sunday morning/afternoon.

My cute waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and efficient. No complaints about the service.

Since I was on my own, carrying my HUGE D70, they must have been wondering why I was arranging the items in front of me and snapping away. Roasted Garlic Olive Oil, Balsamic vinegar, and a little salt was a nice twist on the usual dip.

Wonderfully, crusty bread to go with the dip. Why does anyone even bother with butter anymore. Yum!

Imported Bottled Water. This is the part I find rather curious. In the US alone, the Bottled Water business is estimated to be around US$8 billion. Insane!

An Italian sausage and mushroom stew with polenta. The sausage was spicy, but a bit too salty. Texture was great. The Polenta was firm and smooth. Perfect. The mushroom stew was lovely, rich, earthy, yum!

Neroteca sells pastas, to frying pans. Very interesting concept. The way theplace is laid out definitely makes one want to cook.

The dessert selection is a bit thin and in terms of price, rather steep.

Cold cuts. Looks good. Everything is imported by the looks of things.

All in all, a very enjoyable experience. One that I am itching to repeat. Any takers?
