The Point @ Damansara Heights & PS150 Speakeasy Bar @ Petaling Street KL

By (sharon loh)

My Saturday nightout began with an ejoyable dinner with close friends at The Point, which ended swiftly in total darkness in appreciation of Earth Hour (glow sticks alert!). We then drove to Petaling Street, in search of one of the newest speakeasy bar in town, PS150, which have since become one of my all time favorite. I can’t wait to tell you about it!
Like the name suggests, the Pink Point (Rm55) was pleasantly on point. The pan-roasted Norwegian salmon was beautifully done with lucious and moist textures. Underneath, angel hair pasta lightly tossed in mentaiko sauce.The Cod’s Gift (Rm65) came in the form of a pan-seared atlantic black cod served with a generous dollop of smoked caviar dressing. Surrounding it, mushroom fritters, asparagus and a swirl of balsamico.The Deconstructed Bak Kut Teh (Rm65) was stacked with fatty cuts of 12 hour slow-cooked pork belly, alongside a fusion of western and asian condiments – quinoa, bok choy, garlic, chilli padi soy glaze and mushroom fritters. The dish could’ve been better if it was infused with stronger herbed flavors neverthless.The Rack And Roll (Rm60) was delicious. The miso infused lamb rack was juicy and flavorsome, alongside a fantastic serving of truffle mash, pumpkin tempura, caramelised pearl onion and a drizzle of plum jus.Just so you know – I have the best friends in the whole wide world. Taking the photographs above may look effortless but it really wasn’t. The place was so dimly-lit, I wasn’t even sure what I was having.Lights out for Earth Hour. These DIY sunglasses made out of glow sticks were so fun to play with!Click this image for outfit deets.
Overall Rating: 6.5/10. I thought that my Rack And Roll was delicious, however my friends felt that their orders were merely ordinary.

Getting to PS150 was an adventure on it’s own. Before I forget, reservations are essential.

Directions To PS150:

1. Waze PS150 / Advance Tertiary College (ATC) / Merchant’s Lane.
2. Spot the ATC building.
3. Park at the open-air car park next to the police station (There’re multiple open-air car parks in the area. Don’t get lost!).
4. Walk across the road to the shoplots on the right hand side of ATC.
5. The entrance of PS150 faces the mainroad (so don’t go looking behind the block!).
6. PS150 is located next to Merchant’s Lane Cafe.
7. You know you’re at the correct place if you spot a bouncer clad in black blazer at the door.
8. Tip: A snapshot of the entrance is in one of the pictures below. Have fun!

I was seated along the bar that evening – the best spot in the entire room in my humble opinion. I got to watch Angie and Fifi whip-up some amazing cocktails, and I also made a couple of new friends.

Here, the cocktails are fantastic! We tried a handful of their signature concoctions, as well as a few off-menu cocktails. My top picks – Assamboi Magarita (Rm39) and Salty Chinaman (Rm39). The off-menu cocktails that I’d recommend – Paddle Pop and Tiki Tiki.

Additionally, the ambience was captivating. I love the narrow and dark passageway leading into the bar and the neon chee-cheong-gai signboard, which exuded a unique yet classical chinese aura to the overall atmosphere. I will definitely return!
