Huck's Cafe @ Jalan Abdullah, Bangsar

Heard Sharmayne talked about wanting to go to Huck's Cafe for some time and so we decided to try out the place for ourselves! Made reservations on a Sunday night and off we go! Since it's our first time there, we had a pretty hard time finding the place because we were not really sure of the location. Little did we know, we actually found the place but we went in circles for about 30 mins as there is no signboard. It's actually located in the housing area. This is what happens when you don't know roads =.=

Went in and was greeted by the lovely and spacious atmosphere. We were seated on the floor.

Huck's Cafe serves about 20 pax per day. It's a private kitchen which is pleasant since its concept is home cooked food :)

Booking must be made at least one or two weeks in advance to be safe. The earlier the better :)  They don't take walk-ins. Menu must also be chosen beforehand as they shop for fresh ingredients everyday.

But Huck's didn't manage to get our chosen menu due to miscommunication. So instead he gave us a surprise!
Basil Seed Mint Soda
The first drink to be served after we arrived. It's pretty refreshing :)

Serewak Acar

Drinks and appetizer is served for the group. Whereas the rest it based on individual orders.
Pumpkin Soup
This is one of the yummiest pumpkin soup that I've tasted so far :)

Wild Mushroom Soup
I ordered the mushroom soup but I liked the pumpkin soup better. The wild mushroom soup was pretty disappointing though.

The meals take time to come so you must be prepared to be patient :)

Now, to the main course. Each dish was shared among 5 of us as it can get pretty filling/boring to eat just only one dish right?
Cottage Lamb Stew Pie
The tender and juicy lamb is cooked just right. According to Amelia, it can be pretty salty after awhile so it's good to share this dish :)

Grilled Salmon Garlic Asparagus Lime Rice with Orange Butter Sauce
Lovely combination especially with the fresh salmon!

Huck Lemon Roast Chicken
The chicken was slightly dry but the potatoes are lovely. haha.

Wild Rocket Chili Chicken Spaghetti
We got amused by the name of the dish at first. The  leafy greens is actually a herb called Wild Rocket. Learnt something new :)
Seafood Risotto Party Mix ft NZ Mussels
Fresh seafood but I didn't try much because I was already stuffed by the end of the meal.

Forgotten what is this drink called but its pear and sour plum if I remember correctly.
Great drink to suppress the bloated feeling after the main course and also make space for dessert! :D

Sharmayne, Me and Amelia.

Time for dessert!
Durian Mud Pie Ice Cream
Normally I do not fancy other dessert created from durian but this durian ice cream is exceptional. It is a definite MUST try!

Chocolate Mud Pie Ice Cream
Did not try this but Charles said it's good as well.

Creme Brulee
My favourite creme brulee, so so awesome and sinful!

After dessert, you can have tea or coffee. 
Alan, Huck Seng, Me, Amelia, Sharmayne and Charles.
Chatted with the owner Huck Seng for a while and he brought us to tour around the cafe. Fell in love with the outdoor garden setting!

Dinner is at RM88 per person. The main course was alright but maybe we had high expectations so we were a little let down. BUT the dessert was definitely worth it. My friends described it as gastronomic. LOL.

Another thing I enjoyed is the private atmosphere at Huck's Cafe where different dining rooms allocated for you to have a great time with your friends compared to the usual noisy restaurants. Can't wait to head back to Huck's Cafe soon :D
