Amazing pastas and desserts

Plan B is fast becoming one of our favourite haunts! We were recommended to try this place by quite a number of people, and we now see what all the fuss is about!

The place itself is adorable in a raw, industrial-ish way. It’s very the old school chic. Before even stepping in the restaurant, we’d already fallen in love with the stripped-down decor. It had a nice, unpretentious, industrial feel with just the right hints of kitschiness.

A cute, quirky welcome to Plan B.

We fell in love with the creative usage of pipes and tubes
 made to look like candles on a stick!

The endless runs of P Ramlee movies on their flat screens, which we obviously love.

Julie: And girls, you’ve seen those handbag hangers being sold practically everywhere, but really, how many of us have actually picked up a set for ourselves? Well, the sweet, gracious people at Plan B took our comfort into account and provide handbag hangers on their tables!

May seem like such a small gesture, but it’s little things like these that make you go all
“Ooh, yayness!” XD

For a restaurant that’s located in Bangsar Village, we expected that the price may be on the high side. But for the portion and quality of the food that you get, this place is a steal!

This picture illustrates our favourite, must-order-everytime-we-come-here pasta at Plan B: Moroccan Lamb Meatballs Pasta (RM19). Yep, even the name itself got us drooling! The meatballs are incredibly tender and packed with the finest of spices, and, coupled with the super yummy tomato-based sauce and sprigs of fresh coriander, makes for a wholesomely satisfying dish.

Another dish we love, the Roasted Cherry Tomatoes Pomodoro (RM 15) tastes absolutely fresh, and it’s very lightweight! We asked them to make it a little spicy, and the sharpness of the chilli really brought a nice kick to the tomato-based pasta.

We also highly recommend their Mixed Mushrooms Pasta!  Though it’s cream-based, it’s surprisingly light. May be the lemon and herb that they incorporate into the dish.

And, they have quite an interesting selection of salads! We have developed quite an obsession over their Soft Shell Crab Salad (RM19). Not sure what the salad leaves they use are called (we were guessing something from the arugula family), but it’s got this really sharp peppery taste that makes this salad like no other!

Moving on to their desserts! If you can only choose one during your visit, then go for their Lemon Meringue Tart (RM10). There was a time when we came all the way here just to have the tart, it’s that good! Not only does it look adorable (well, all their desserts do! Hehe), it is THE perfect lemon meringue tart: the meringue melts oh-so-softly in your mouth, the lemon filling is just the right balance between sweet and sour, the pastry shell crumbles perfectly... it is a great way to cleanse your palette and round up your meal!

If we have to have desserts after a particularly heavy meal, we’d definitely go for lemon tarts as they help cut that overfed feeling. Not sure what the scientific explanation is, since you’re ingesting even more food in technically, but it beats taking Eno anytime!

We also bow down to the awesomeness that is their Banoffee. Well, what can we say? It’s banana and toffee done so right! The grated dark chocolate pieces sprinkled over the top of the pie gives the dish a bittersweet edge, which we makes us love it even more!

If we’re not mistaken, Plan B is run by the former owner of Delicious, which may explain why the food here is amazing. For their very reasonable price range, who can blame us if we have a recurring itch to swing by this place again and again? ;)

If you’re going for a lengthy lunch or dinner, parking in the Bangsar Village basement parking may get pricey, but it sure beats having a headache finding a spot in the Telawi streets.
