twenty.one @ Bangsar

Twenty.one ..... a number where it is highly loved by many. Well it could be '21' from a game of 'blackjack'. 21 years of age ~ a prime age, 21 for some means 'longevity' as 2 + 1 = 3 (sang). Etc...

This particular 21 is located in Bangsar Shopping Center at Bangsar. Twenty.one is a place where the young and the restless would like to let their hair loose in the evening with a couple of chilled beers or liquor, a place for many to unwind and entwined (LOL) and all this happens after sun set.

And during the day this place dishes out some really cool and funky and affordable set lunches. Cool in a sense where 'East meets West' and plenty to be offered. There are approx 10 different types of set lunches to choose from ~ sandwich, curry noodle, pasta, thai green curry just to name a few. And each set lunches comes with a glass of fruit juice or carbonated drink.

The atmosphere of this place is pretty cool and relaxing indeed. The only downfall is that it smelt of cigarettes which is a pain. This unpleasant scent was being left overnight by late night party goers which is ok for the evening event but not for daytime event.

Complementary snacks before a meal
Service is commendable too as the waiter and waitress there are pretty alert and attentive. But it all depends on how busy they are, actually, from my point of view. They are also pretty well mannered and really performed in what they do best. Very hospitable indeed.

Thai Green Chicken Curry @ RM18.00++
Very presentable indeed when this dish was brought to us. Somehow there was just no 'aroma' to fill us in and this I smelt danger. And true enough from the very first spoonful of this lovely looking green curry into my watery mouth ~ ngom, ngom, ngom ..... it's tasteless. Failed miserably. If I was blindfolded I would not know that this particular bowl is 'green curry'. Yeah it's really this bad. Comes with some potatoes, beans and peas and served with a handful of bread. Yeah, no rice though. Pretty odd eh.

Penne Tubes @ RM18.00++
Oh what a marvelous plate of pasta. It comes with 'tempura eggplant' and 'pesto chicken'. I found myself gobbling up this plate of pasta non-stop which means only one thing ~ delicious.

Spaghetti Oglio Olio @ RM10.00++
...and when we thought we had one of the best pasta, came another that is mind-blowing. I was firing in all cylinders. This Oglio Olio was even better. It comes with beef bacon, chilli, coriander and olive oil. Yummy !

Toasted Pesto Chicken Sandwich @ RM9.00++
Ahh .... finally one of the two sandwich was served. First to come was the chicken sandwich which came with tomatoes with bearnaise sauce and some fries with some dipping sauce. Pure delight sinking my teeth into this lovely sandwich. It was so delicious where everyone wanted more.

The 'Scummy Salmon Sandwich' tasted even better. It was truly amazing and out of this world. Words just cannot describe how wonderful it can be. And at RM16.00++  truly a bargain.

Conclusion : Not too bad foodie, lot's of variety ~ only touched on set lunches and lot's more from the ala carte menu, commendable service, pretty relaxing atmosphere, can't stand the ciggie smell, reasonable pricing.  But portion was slightly too small. A 3/5.
