This review is brought to you in part by Chequers. 

After three years of serving up American-inspired comfort fare in TTDI, KL’s top venue for elaborate waffle creations has launched its second outpost. Customers in Solaris Mont Kiara seem to love Chequers too, a testament to how the recipes here have been fine-tuned to crowd-pleasing perfection.

The ideal introduction to Chequers remains the signature waffles, painstakingly prepared with different batters to complement each preparation, some savoury, others sweet. These offerings are distinctive, offering playful waffle-based interpretations of classic favourites. If you love Eggs Benedict, you’re in for a treat with the Down Home Benny (RM 20), a savoury waffle draped with beef bacon and a seductive poached egg glistening with guacamole and hollandaise sauce. Best for brunch, but satisfying for an evening meal too. Meanwhile, the Mexican Fried Chicken (RM 25) proves to be a jazzed-up version of the U.S. soul-food staple of chicken and waffles, with turkey ham stuffed into the crispy fried chicken, enhanced with dripping melted mozzarella and cheddar, with flavoursome garlic and scallion waffles furnishing a solid foundation for a medley of punchy dynamics. And, if you want to take control, Chequers lets you build your own waffle too.

Beyond waffles though, Chequers promises more than enough for a fulfilling multi-course meal. You could start with one of our favourites here, the Chilli Poppers, boasting plump green chillies stuffed with tuna (RM 12), as well as the Summertime Salad, a zesty mix of greens with sun-dried tomatoes, black olives and orange slices, made complete with protein of grilled salmon and tiger prawns, tossed in Chequers’ house-made French dressing (RM 28).

For mains, the possibilities are wide-ranging – you can have a relatively wholesome serving of Seabass Vierge (RM 33), showcasing chunky pan-seared sea bass with a lemony sauce that hints of olive oil, tomatoes and basil, plus sides of pesto fettuccine, mushrooms and asparagus for well-balanced nourishment …

… or indulge in a cheat-day temptation of Chipotle Mac n Cheese Burger (RM 30), a grand slam of an all-Australian beef patty, beef bacon, chipotle sauce and so much mac and cheese, the burger turns into a culinary tower, with the ingredients deliciously spilling over each other.

The Fried Chicken Burrito (RM 26) is also worthwhile, putting a twist on what initially seems to a straightforward Tex-Mex concoction, with chicken fingers mingling unexpectedly with couscous, grilled pineapple and spicy mayo. Weekday lunch sets are also available, with a menu that changes weekly. These come with a free selected drink and dessert at RM 18++.

Desserts and drinks

Chequers is not short of a variety of desserts, but the Chocoholic (RM 18) is the apple of our eye – a velvety chocolate semifreddo that’s intriguingly constructed on a waffle crust, made textured with almond brittles and Oreo crumbles, coupled with chocolate ice cream for double the cacao delight, buoyed by mixed fruits for a naturally refreshing sweetness. We’ll be back for the other imaginative treats, which include a Red Velvet Smorffle and a Deconstructed Tiramisu. Beverages for all ages abound at Chequers. Alongside the array of coffee, smoothies and juices, you can drown your woes with the Amber tea, a mix of apple, cinnamon, rosemary and lemon (RM 11), and a thick, frosty Salted Caramel milkshake (RM 13). There’s certainly no sophomore slump at Chequers; many thanks to the team here for having us.
