Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar @ Bangsar

Nestled in the heart of Bangsar Baru, Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar has been a popular dessert spot since it's opening early this year. The Australian inspired dessert bar and kitchen helmed by Hester Ling and Gerard Ng, who are both professional pastry chefs aims to introduce contemporary western cuisine and plated desserts to stimulate one's taste buds. Not only delicious, each plate of the desserts were exquisitely crafted and lavishly plated with plenty of attention to detail. Hester and Gerard were classmates at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney and have spent quite some time abroad(mainly Australia) thus this inspired them to start Upperhouse, and introduce Australian cuisine and notably plated desserts minus the hefty price tag to Malaysian. Besides desserts, Upperhouse also offers an array of appetisers, all-day breakfast, main courses, beverages and all things chocolate. 

Mantao RM12

We started with some soft, fluffy and pillowy golden steamed bun served with Sea Salt Caramel.

Crab Cappuccino RM20
Next, crab soup with a twist, the flavourful crab cappuccino was generously laden with chunks of mud crab meats, tomato, topped with a lovely milk froth and served with croutons. Lovely presented in an old school cup, this is totally insta-worthy!

Spring Lamb Stew RM36
Meltingly tender and flavourful lamb shoulder stew with spring vegetable and served with housemade Kombucha sourdough. Truly so good, I will come back again for this.

Cacao Ravioli RM34
The ravioli handmade upon order which comes on a bed of capsicum sauce and cheese was equally good.

Bite after bite, each delectable morsel generously filled with a wonderful mix of cheese and succulent forest mushrooms was truly satisfying.

Chicken a L'Orange RM30
The roasted chicken topped with orange confit and gastrique sauce was flavourful and tangy, however, the chicken was a tad on the dry side. This was my least favourite dish.
Yay... Finally some sweetness after the savoury! The desserts at Upperhouse ranges from light to rich, thus depending on one's mood for the day, there's something to tickle your taste bud for sure.

Mille-Feuille RM24
Lovely presentation, the amazing Mille-Feuille consists of airy and flaky puff pastry filled with orange milk chocolate mousse, pineapple, almond and served with hay ice cream. Such delicious classic!
Panna Cotta RM25
Luscious vanilla pannacotta with passionfruit agar cacao strands, mango gel, caramelized chocolate, aerated sponge and wood sorrel topped with miso ice cream. Must try!

Paris Brest RM24
Green tea lovers, you wouldn't want to miss this choux pastry filled with rich subtle matcha cremeux, vanilla and white chocolate, so good it might make you cry.

As for the last dessert, Crepe Suzette, it was prepared in a tableside performance right before your very eyes.

The crepe laden with thick and tangy caramelized sauce.

Crepe Suzette RM25
The thin and delicious French crepes topped with tangy orange confit, orange reduction and grand marnier was another French classic that will make your taste buds sing.

Rainbow Lemonade RM9
The blue pea flower tea with lemonade makes an amazing all natural colour drink.

Kombucha Mocktail RM11 (Cherry, Clove, Lychee)
Another must try is the Upperhouse's homemade kombucha tea. Fermented for 14 days using black tea and sugar in a jar, the tea is said to help with detoxification, improve digestion, increase energy and boost immunity.
Fancier versions of the Kombucha are also available in the form of mocktails, not to mention truly insta-worthy too. The kombucha mocktail(Cherry, Clove, Lychee) was the perfect thirst quencher, simply refreshing and awesomely good.

Bridestowe Lavender Latte RM10
Ohh.... so pretty and delicious.
The latte was infused with Bridestowe Lavender Estate Tasmania and wonderfully garnished with blue pea flower and freeze-dried strawberry powder.

Sao Thome 70% RM10
Intense and rich tasting chocolate with complex flavour peaks of red and yellow fruits.

Also, chocolate lovers shouldn't miss out to try the chocolates in Upperhouse, as they are made to order using single origin cacao beans from Callebaut, reputed to be one the finest flavour cacao beans around due to soil, climate and habitat. In fact, Upperhouse Bangsar is also the first in Malaysia to introduce hot chocolate in a cone, a trend that started in Australia in early May.

Upperhouse is designed with young children and their parents in mind. There is a special kids corner, handmade by Gerard and Hester to keep your little ones entertained while you indulge in your meal.

All in all, we simply adore the lovely presentation and gorgeous tasting foods. Forget fine dining restaurant, here at Upperhouse, you could enjoy the art of lavishly plated dessert without burning a hole in the wallet. Wonderful food and cosy ambiance in the exciting Bangsar, make Upperhouse your next dining destination today.
