It has been some time since I last went to Bangsar, and when I went back there weeks ago, I was surprised to see quite a few new shops around the area. One of them is a dessert bar named Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar.

Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar is located on the 1st floor along Jalan Telawi 3, opposite Beato Steakhouse. It is a very simple and pretty spacious place.

The artwork on the wall is a nice spot to take photos, plus the natural sunlight shining through the windows; it is perfect an OOTD spot! The owner of the dessert bar is a mother herself, so she understands how challenging it can by to bring kids around when eating out. With this in mind, she has specially created a kid-friendly space for the little ones to play, and also a baby changing station for moms. Honestly, I think this is by far the most baby-friendly cafe I've ever been!

No.15 Spiced Chicken Drumettes (RM 20) serves with lime salt and lime aioli.

Well marinated succulent drumettes with golden crispy skin - a perfect appetizer to have.

Schnitzel Upperhouse Style (RM 25). No.15 chicken, caramelized apples and strawberry salad. Just like the drumettes, the chicken schnitzel is another succulent fried chicken dish not to be missed. I had my doubts when I saw the caramelized apples, but the sweetness of the apples goes very well with the chicken, and the salad definitely brightens up the entire dish.

Cacao Ravioli (RM 34). First thing that came to my mind was "Oh, squid ink ravioli!" It turned out the ravioli were made of cacao powder filled with forest mushroom, capsicum sauce and cheese.

The cacao flavours were barely there, but I love the rich and earthy fillings, and the smooth, creamy capsicum sauce is a total yum! The Cacao Ravioli is definitely something I'll order again when I'm back at the dessert bar.

Fruit Toast - Set of 3 (RM 23). Homemade sourdough spread with 100% homemade cashew butter sauce. From left to right:

> Spiced Pineapple, Orange, Hazelnut, Basil
> Strawberries, Chocolate Crumbs, Mint
> Banana, Salted Caramel, Popcorn

The toasts are very pretty looking from all the fresh fruits. Compared to the usual white bread, sourdough has more chewy texture with a crispy crust. If you area a fan of fluffy bread, this might not be what you are looking for. Otherwise, the Fruit Toast is still a nice dessert to have.

Talk about desserts, the pastry chef at Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar has been professionally-and worked with a number of renowned Top 50 Best Restaurants in The World. The plating desserts are something worth looking forward to at Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar.

Lemon (RM 22). Lemon curd, Vanilla, Lavender, Raspberry, and Coconut Ice Cream. The tartness of the lemon flavours are nicely carried throughout the dish, yet not over-powering. Sometimes you don't need a heavy dessert to complete your meal, but something as light as Lemon can be very satisfying too.

Carrot (RM 20). Walnut, Greek Yoghurt, Honeycomb, Burnt Honey Ice Cream. For something heavier, the Carrot would make a good choice. The burnt honey ice cream on the place was my favourite!

Mille-Feuille (RM 24). Puff pastry, Orange Milk Chocolate Mousse, Pineapple, Almond, and Hay Ice Cream. The puff pastry might not be the flakiest ones I've had but it's still not too bad overall.

From left to right:

Babyccino (RM 5).
Hot Choco (RM 10).

For photo purposes, these cones would definitely look good. Personally, I'm not a fan of them as it leak very easily from the bottom of the cone.

Kombucha Mocktail - Raspberry, Lemon (RM 11). Kombucha is fermented, lightly effervescent sweetened black or green tea drinks that are commonly consumed for health benefits. I have kombucha once and it wasn't pleasant experience. I guessed the ones I had was overly fermented and it got too acidic with an unpleasant after-taste.

On the other hand, I enjoyed the kombucha at Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar. The kombucha was fermented at the dessert bar and it had a nice balance of sweet and sour, with a hint of aromatic tea flavours. By adding fresh fruits such as raspberries and lemons, it gives the drink a bright and refreshing flavours.

Located along Jalan Telawi 3, it can be very challenging to get a parking space but you can always park at Bangsar Village nearby and walk over the Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar. From the main dishes to desserts, Upperhouse has put a lot of thoughts and effort into their menu. If you are looking for a place to enjoy nice hot food and desserts at the same time, Upperhouse Kitchen & Bar will be a good choice. If you are a mom with kids, I'd say this is a perfect place for you!
