Sweet Indulgence @ Alexis, Bangsar Baru

I decided I wanted cake instead of drinks last week, so Alexis it was, for some Pavlova. I know it says meringue on the display, but it looks like Pavlova to me. So, I’m going to call it Pavlova. Between gossips and catching up, we happily dug into the lip-smacking combination of delicate, crispy outer shell, soft, marshmallow-like centre, fresh cream and fresh fruits. The fruits were tangy and some very tart (especially the blueberries), so the Pavlova wasn’t too sweet. Although it was delicious, I still prefer the Tiramisu. They are both very good, just a matter of preference, really.

Rant time!
(If you don’t want to see me angry, you better close this window now…)


As a food blogger, friends and family often leave it to me to decide on where to eat, which I enjoy doing. When friends ask me for restaurant recommendations, I’m more than happy to help.

What I cannot stand is when some people call me up, and without asking me how I’m doing, barge into this question, “I need the phone number of this restaurant now. You got? Don’t have? Find for me!”

Please…just dial 103 for TM Directory, I REPEAT 103, one-zero-three, satu-kosong-tiga….state the name of the restaurant/place and the operator will give you the number!

I don’t keep all restaurant phone numbers in my cell and neither am I glued to my monitor 24/7, so calling me and expecting me to give you the number ASAP is ridiculous. And how can you expect me to stop what I’m doing (like my job!), go on Google and find the number for you?

So there! I’m giving you the number….103! Call this number next time.

    Yeah I agree that sometimes people do take us for granted. Believe me, some of my friends are also like this… but I always kept my cool and replied "Sorry wor… I don't have the number with me. If you want, there's always 103 you can call"

    Sometimes, you need to be strict with these type of people. Answers like "I'm not free" and "I'm out" will do the trick. :D

    Oh yes, Alexis have some pretty good cakes…

  4. "Joe" who is constantly craving

    y is tat experience all sounding so familiar..

    its the expectation isnt? i just have to bluntly answer that go google n find yourself..

    apparently (no surprise) from watching AFC, the meringue is the egg white (the raw mat) and the pavlova is the finished product..tats wat i remembered from the show hehe..

  5. Simon Seow

  6. Raynebow

  9. ai wei

    hahaha, i agree with you. i am having this trouble as well. we are not the restaurant-'dictionary' or something, they should have go google or press the phone directory or look for yellow page!

    i love alexis's tiramisu. will hop over there :P

  10. Lyrical Lemongrass

    Alexis' cakes are pretty good. My first taste of pavlova was at Alexis many many years ago!

  11. jeen

    it *is* a pavlova – like i said, they mislabeled it/ don't know what it's called

  12. Bangsar-bAbE

    jeen – Seems like they mislabeled it everywhere…it says "meringue" at BSC too!

    LL – Yes they are…yum yum yum!

    ai wei – Ya lor…make me geram only these people! ^_^

  13. Bangsar-bAbE

    taufulou – We must have missed each other then! ;)

    June – I wonder if we have "food directory" on our foreheads! =P

    Raynebow – Once or twice then I won't be pissed off la…but some have been doing this for a long time. My bubble burst already!

  14. Bangsar-bAbE

    Simon – Yup…I think they're just plain lazy!

    Joe – Now I'm tempted to ask Alexis why they call it mixed berries meringue and not pavlova! >P

  15. Bangsar-bAbE

    Chong – Guess I have to be firmer next time, or I'll just give them 103 to call!

    I had to stop myself from looking at the display (it was right in front of me!), else I'd order the pies and Tiramisu…

    leo – No lar…not on fire. Just a bit huffed. ;)

  16. thenomadGourmand

    lets go makan, then can cool dwn! ;p
    And yeah..the Pav is good! not too sweet! very fresh cream and fruits too. I liked it! The first time i had Pav was at The Apartment. Swore off Pavs aft that.
    Now I wanna try FBB's..wanna share?

  17. Sugar Bean

    Haven't tried the meringue/pavlova before in Alexis before. But do have to say that their tiramisu is the best I've eaten so far! Love it.

    And the calling 103 is the right thing to ask them to do! :)

  18. J2Kfm

    wah … erm let's say I'm lost in KL somedays when I'm there, can I ask you ah?

    or do I need to wear a shield? =P

  19. Anonymous

    Agree with you, nothing, and I repeat NOTHING, beats the TIRAMISU cake at Alexis. I've never tasted anything like it, and they (or rather the person who bakes it) have mantained the quality and consistency since oh, so many years ago (when Alexis was only in Jln Telawi).

    Also, just would like to express my appreciation to you for running this blog, taking your time to put up pictures and your comments on the good food guide in Malaysia. Don't let those obnoxious and ungrateful people get you down.
