Naked_1

Exposed at last, here comes one of Sri Hartamas’ most seductive new restaurants this year.

This two-level venue proves knowingly versatile: on top, Naked’s brightly lit, cafe-like setting would work well for lunch, while its breezy bar space at the bottom might lure customers seeking someplace casual but cool to chill out in the evening.Naked_2

Starters

Naked’s menu features familiar favorites with cheeky twists: Its mushroom soup (RM18+) is a menage a trois of the shiitake, brown button and oyster varieties, sauteed in a sherry broth with herbs, finished with truffle creme fraiche & fresh thyme.

Naked_3

 Lady’s fingers (RM16+), a vegetarian-friendly snack tossed in paprika-tinged batter, crisply coupled with coriander and a cucumber-mint yogurt dip.

Pizza

Meat-free pizzas can satisfy, evidenced by this well-crowned creation with garlic-roasted veggies, goat’s cheese, rosemary, whole-milk mozzarella and aged balsamic reduction; costing a reasonable RM33+, it’s clear that Naked’s prices won’t strip patrons of their hard-earned cash.Naked_5

Burgers

Canadian executive chef Nigel Richter’s house burger feels fully loaded for ravenous eaters, stacked with a seared beef patty, melted aged cheddar cheese, lettuce, subtly spicy onion rings, crunchy beef bacon and beefsteak tomatoes.

Salad

Dressed in a maple balsamic emulsion, Naked’s no-gluten salad includes protein-powered components like caramelized beef bacon and a baked parmesan crisp.Naked_7

Desserts

White chocolate semifreddo (RM19++) with vanilla cream, salted chocolate crumble and berries.Naked_8

Cocktails

Naked’s cocktails exhibit the bare brilliance of Joshua Ivanovic; love the Cool Bananas (RM28+), comprising Angostura Reserva white rum, banana liquor, lime juice and a banana chopped up into the shape of a friendly dolphin.

Bloody Gardeners (RM22+): Smirnoff Red Label vodka, tomato juice and seasoning. Will likely be served in a plant pot beginning next week.
