Little Collins, Mont Kiara
It's the most wonderful time of the year! To celebrate this joyful month, Little Collins is spreading the Christmas cheer with a variety of festive treats for family and friends. Read on to find out what's in store (and how you can enjoy a 15% discount!).
Baileys Chocolate Cake - contains alcohol (RM185 for 7" round)*
I really enjoyed tasting this Christmas masterpiece. The Baileys chocolate cake is essentially a moist chocolate sponge cake layered with Irish Baileys whiskey cream. Topped with fancy chocolate baubles, gold-dusted strawberries, bright red macarons and a "Merry Christmas" festive topper (from @thepinkigloostudio), you are all set to wow your guests with this one. A non-alcohol option is available in Chocolate Black Forest for only RM165*. They also have a Christmas Cookies and Cream cake priced at RM135*.
Christmas Cake Pops (RM50.80 for a set of 4)*
Meet Rudolph, Polar, Penguin & Frosty! I have always admired the little details on Little Collins cake pops and I must say these adorable Christmas characters instantly melted our hearts when they arrived. These chocolate cake popsicles were admittedly too cute for us to eat but I reckon these are great for gifts or as a fun addition at parties.
Christmas Apple Pies / Heart (RM106 for 25 pieces)*
Christmas Mince Pies / Star - contains alcohol (RM125 for 25 pieces)*
Little Collins has also got you covered with some homemade pies. Between the Christmas apple pie and Christmas mince pie, I really couldn't decide which I liked better. The simple but delicious cinnamon-filled Christmas apple pie was scrumptious! While the Christmas mince pie packs a fruity punch with raisins, orange peel, lemon peel and candied fruit that have been soaked in port wine, and mixed with cinnamon apples. Yum! These mini pastries are sure to make the perfect finger food for the season!
Rainbow Cheesecake (RM105 for 7" round)*
Apart from the Christmas goodies, we had the privilege to sample their cheesecakes and my favourite was definitely the Rainbow Cheesecake. More than the pretty combination of pastel colours, I love the fact that this cake had an original, simple and mild lemon taste to it.
Lemon Cheesecake (RM95 for 7" round)*
The bright Lemon Cheesecake was really good too. Overall, it wasn't too sweet with its yummy biscuit base and you can taste the strong zesty flavour in it. If you are not a fan of sweet stuff, you can opt to give this citrus cake a try.
Nutella Cheesecake (RM115 for 7" round)
I can't think of anything that can go wrong with an awesome ingredient like Nutella and sure enough, this Nutella Cheesecake was heavenly indeed. It makes the perfect cheat day treat that would be worth rewarding yourself for. What more, this cake comes decorated in chocolate ganache, ferrero rocher and kinder beuno. Enough said.
Mini Assorted Tarts (RM3.80 each)*
There are also a variety of mini tarts available at Little Collins. You can get it in lemon meringue, banoffee, chocolate, passionfruit, cheese and apple crumble. These were honestly such a delight to look at and even more delightful on the tastebuds!
Cheddar Chicken (RM19)**
BBQ Chicken Chop (RM19)**
If you find yourself ever in need of some comfort food, Little Collins also doubles up as a pork-free cafe that serves up meals like chicken, pizza and pasta. We tried their cheesy cheddar chicken and BBQ chicken chop, which was similar in presentation but tasted fairly differently with the sauce.
BBQ Chicken Pizza (RM18)**
Cheesy Turkey Pizza (RM18)**
Pizzas on the other hand were generous in toppings and flavourful.
Spicy Seafood Olio (RM23)**
It's true when they say to never judge a book by its cover because this olio pasta was surprisingly super spicy. It was quite tasty and I'm glad I could take the heat.
Banana French Toast (RM11)**
Nutella French Toast (RM16)**
Again, I think Nutella just makes anything and everything better. From the All Day Breakfast menu, I enjoyed the nutella french toast served with fresh strawberries the most, though the scrumptious banana french toast was a close competitor.
