Having been to Acme South in Bangsar and had had a great meal there, we decided to check out Acme Bar & Coffee / ABC at The Troika over the weekend. By the way, Troika is well known for its Sky Dining. If you can afford it, do try out dining in the sky. It is absolutely amazing from what I heard. The experience is definitely different from dining in the sky / on an airplane.
Alright, back to Acme Bar & Coffee. Just as its name implies, Acme is a combination of a bar and a cafe. So you could expect a good mix of bar and cafe food and drinks here. Since we just had a late breakfast, we ordered only a slice of cake and a cup of coffee.
This is Acme Bar & Coffee’s Orange Lava Cake. Love the strong citrus of the fruit and the sweetness of the chocolate. The orange cake was soft and spongy. The combination of the orange and chocolate is just heavenly.
The Flat White Coffee was also quite good. It was fragrant, foamy and it had a velvety consistency.
Acme Bar & Coffee is located in a building which is surrounded with huge window glasses. So you can expect lots of natural lights and at the same time, it can get very hot in the afternoon.
There is a small area on the ground floor which is shedded.
But if you can’t find any place to sit, just head upstairs.
You may check out their menu. Here is just part of it. For the full list, a link is provided at the bottom of this post.
Acme Bar & Coffee is a great hang out place for family and friends. But there is a serious problem in which they have to sort it out fast. The service here is quite bad. We waited for too long for our bill to arrive and had to walk all the way down to the counter to pay our bill. To make matters worst, we weren’t the only table which had to walk to the counter to pay but other tables too. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think myself as high and mighty, insisting that bills are to be presented to me and not the other way round, but there are so many staffs that apparently do not know what to do. I guess the root of the problem is communication. The staffs just didn’t know what to do.
That said, I’m still quite happy with our cake and coffee, the ambiance here is good too. I hope they get the communication problem sorted out fast, otherwise it will leave a bad impression on its future customers.
