Okay, so it starts like this ….
Brixton has their own private PARKING, specially for its customers, free of charge, located at the side, just next to the building. So, once you’re parked, walk over to the front. If you arrive rather early, as in right around the time they just opened (they open at 12 pm), perhaps around 12.10, 12.15 and the tailor shop looks closed despite the door sign saying ‘open’, just call them at – 03-2303 4765, someone will be right up to let you in.
Then, you’d be led to a hidden door of sorts – the mirror, which will lead you down to the restaurant.
It was nice. There is plenty to see all around. If you are around the area, in the city center, in the mood for something that is aesthetically pleasing – do consider Brixton.
During the day, it is nice and quite. A good place for lunch, a get together, meetings and etc. During the night, Brixton is a lounge/bar. Do check out their Facebook page – https://www.facebook.com/Brixton23KL/ for all the latest events and offerings.
I visited this restaurant for lunch and while I was there, I decided to make use of the whole “50% off on all beer” offer but I was told that all supplies were emptied, finished. I guess that ought to tell you that this place is pretty popular at night. Perhaps even more popular than they are at noon.
Salted Cod Fried Rice, 18.80 ringgit + Oceana Seafood Risotto, 23 ringgit
Both dishes were yummy. I especially liked the risotto. the consistency of the rice was spot on – solid and chewy on the inside despite its creamy exterior. Usually, the risotto that I am used to is thick and creamy, sometimes cheesy and gooey. The one served here was a lil more liquid-ish than I am used to but I kindda liked it, it was flavorful. Once you mix it all up, the rice + the gravy made for a creamy dish. There was a generous amount of prawns and squids and they tasted fresh. I’d go for this dish again, I liked it.
The Salted Cod Fried Rice was yummy too. The only downside to this dish was that by the time it reached my table – it was mostly cold. I truly appreciate the fact that they serve all the dishes in one go, which did save me and my potential client a few awkward moments lol but yea, the dish was somewhat cold. Having the cold version tasted good enough, I can only imagine how tasty it would have been it the dish was all warm and heated. It was a simply dish – black in fried rice + fried cod + sambal but it sure tasted good.
Would I head back here?
Yea, I think I’d drop by during the night for my next visit. I am curious to see how it is when it is a lounge/bar, whether it is still tame or loud and rambunctious.
