Lua x Acme Bar & Coffee (often
abbreviated as ABC) is a modern café located in the ground floor of The Troika.
The café was founded in 2010 and aims to create an exciting addition to the
vibrant dining scene in Kuala Lumpur after the team behind the restaurant spent
many years of travelling to the Pacific Northwest; getting inspired by the cool
and casual restaurant and cafe scene that has a distinct laid-back vibe that
permeates throughout Portland, Seattle and Vancouver. The team decided to take
it one step further by injecting this modern feel of the West with hints of
Asian influences without the usual clichés.
As far as the food is concerned, it
sticks to the same theme mentioned earlier with an emphasis on comfort Western
food with a familiar Asian feel to it, whilst making sure to use fresh
ingredients and handmaking everything including the breads, sauces, fillings,
and others. All the dishes here are made to order, some of these dishes
include roast lamb rack with dukkah spice, chunky beef steak meat pie, the big breakfast aptly called the “Acme Breakfast Club” which includes poached eggs
and eggs benedict, tuna melt sandwiches, and a whole lot more.
The desserts here are just as
celebrated, if not, receives greater praise than it’s main course counterpart.
The standout is most certainly the sizzling brownie & Oreo ice cream. Other
noteworthy items that go well with the coffee served here include the pancakes
with pear slices, pisang goreng, and a whole lot more. With that said, don't waste anymore time; head over to Acme Bar & Coffee for an unforgettable experience!
