ABC’s seasonal menu pays special focus to ‘GoodSeed’ –
an assortment of the finest produce and products from around the world
Acme Bar & Coffee
8 April 2015
Acme Bar and Coffee, a bistro set in a timeless yet contemporary ambiance at The Troika launched its spring menu today to further accentuate its perennial options. The new spring delight features a discerning and wholesome cuisine.
Showcasing the best produce and products from around the world, ABC’s thriving objectives are to foremost satisfy one’s palate with the finest ingredients they can find. The refreshing menu embraces the warmer seasons by incorporating provencal vegetables, celeriac and a new ingredient – freekeh. An ancient grain, freekeh is a delicious and nutritious young green wheat, roasted to impart a beautiful subtle flavour.
Guests were treated to a selection of scrumptious spring infused delectables. Crostino Troika, a spicy duck chorizo paired with mushroom feta cheese; Charred & Grilled Veggie Pizzadillas, a grilled zucchini charred with broccoli, spring onion on tomato coulis topped with mozzarella cheese and dukkah oil. As for mains, the Charred Angus Flank Steak and Seafood Freekeh Paella were the highlight of the menu. Other tongue-tantalising spring fares also made its way to the table.
A strong advocate for good wholesome food, Acme delivers freshly-made dishes upon order, never pre-cooked or microwaved. “Our meat dishes are air-flown chilled Australian beef. They are not frozen. We use organic eggs for our breakfast dishes because they taste better. We use French rocket in our salads because rocket salads should give a peppery taste when we bite into it,” said Andrew Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Acme Bar & Coffee.
“This Spring, we are also paying special focus to Seed Box – an edible garden that you can grow at home. Acme Bar and Coffee is proud to announce that all proceeds from the sale of our Seed Boxes will be channelled to the Malaysian Nature Society (MNS), in supporting their education initiatives and doing our bit for the conservation of our natural heritage”, he added.
The relentless focus on wholesomeness goes beyond its food at Acme Bar & Coffee. Coffee here comes from DeGayo, richly aromatic Lintong beans of the highlands of Sumatra. These beans are extracted using state-of-the-art La Marzocco Strada espresso machine. Variable pressure profiles on this machine finely extract the best from its roast and with only 10 of these machines in Malaysia, Acme Bar & Coffee has two.
Also a fan favourite with customers are Tea Forte’s Signature Teas, a purveyor of luxurious teas known for its unparalleled quality with its artisanal teas and infusions. Crafted with a socially conscious and responsible partnership with non-profit organisations, it is Fair Trade ™ and also USDA Organic certified.
Not forgetting the palliative spirits, ABC eminently featured one of the finest vodka brands – Reyka from Iceland. It boasts a super smooth body with crispness from its Arctic heritage. Hand crafted, Arctic spring water is collected from a 4,000 year old lava field as filtration process. It is then distilled using geo-thermal energy. Appreciate it simply with tonic adorned by a wedge of grapefruit, or opt for Shawn Chong of Omakase & Appreciate’s unique cocktail, available throughout the GoodSeed Spring Menu from March 26 to June 18, 2015.
