Sunday Brunch @ Touche Pastries & More, Seksyen 17 PJ

Went to Touche upon BIL's recommendation. The little cafe-bakery serves hot food including breakfast (which unfortunately ends at 11am so we totally missed it), mains such as steaks and pasta and offers a wide range of pastries and cakes as desserts. 
The interior design of the cafe seems interesting, a lot of raw material used. It is a very small cafe though hence sitting capacity is pretty limited but the cozy ambiance made it up for the lack of space.

Since we already missed breakfast, here are the mains we ordered...
Mix Grilled Time (what a name by the way), RM24.90.
Grilled Lamb Steak, RM24.90.
Grilled Fish.
In general, the Mix Grilled Time and Grilled Lamb Steak are above average as meats are fresh and are very well-grilled. But I don't like how they use just the same gravy for almost all of their dishes. I mean, how hard is it to make black pepper sauce? Could it be something already pre-made? I think for a cafe to show its standard, that should change. Something a bit more creative or sophisticated will do. The Grilled Fish (without the gravy) was pretty satisfying, juicy and not overcooked. The wedges that comes with it were really unforgettable too! 
Since BIL has full of praises for their croissant I tried and it is indeed very delicious! Crispy on the outside, and fine and thin layers with nice and not-too-over-the-top butter flavour on the inside, the croissant is by far one of the best I have tried in KL. Well, it is really not easy to find nice croissant here so this is really of top quality! :)
Croissant, RM3.80.
Matcha Sesame Tarte, RM10.
Cappuccino, RM8.
Cafe Latte, RM7.50.
I didn't find the Matcha Sesame Tarte very outstanding, but that's probably because I'm not used to the texture. Pooofff... Don't ask me, I'm not a dessert person! Coffee was not bad, although not fantastic. 
I'm still very disappointed that I didn't get to try their breakfasts! They all look good!!!
For the four of us, four drinks, four mains, two croissant and a dessert, the brunch cost as around RM170 and that was not too bad a price at all. While the hot food are not bad, the pastries seem to be the stars at Touche so if you are a fan of pastries and cakes, here's a place you mustn't miss! :)
