Great food and drink at The Locker & Loft @ Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya

The Locker and Loft is a hidden bar which may take some time for the unfamiliar to find it as it is located behind lockers on the first floor of no signboard shophouse in Damansara Kim. That's the fun of locating speakeasy bar. The internal of the bar looks interesting with exposed metal pipes and copper bars. The main attraction here are their food and innovative cocktail using a lot of local ingredients. Example I do like their Kaya Mon which is their kaya based cocktail with coconut water, Cuban dark rum, gula melaka and santan. Since I like sweet cocktail this will be my preference. The other local ingredients used in their cocktail are homemade pandan syrup, jackfruit and coconut milk. Even though this place is known for drink, but their food are quite good and creative as well. I do like their mutton varuval quesadillas, Commondo sausages and braised pork belly rendang mantou.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The food here are mostly bar bites but they do have main meal as well. I like their spicy mutton varuval quesadillas. Fragrant with spices makes the quesadillas very good.

Also ordered their 3 kinds of sashimi with tuna, grouper and salmon at MYR52.00. Omakase meal here will cost you MYR420.00. Its worth it if you are thinking of trying similar calibre type of sushi as in Tsukiji market in Tokyo).
