LG 10, Bangsar Vil­lage I, Jalan Telawi 1, Bangsar, KL (+603 2283 6288/www.acme­south.com). When it comes to dishing up a sooth­ing plat­ter of com­fort food for the soul, Acme South is un­like any other. In the sea of cafés that litter the streets of Bangsar, it’s rare to find one that leaves a last­ing im­pres­sion when most of­ten, food be­comes ‘no big deal’ when there’s so many op­tions to choose from. The setup is classy: the con­cept of an old-fash­ioned Southern dive bar sans the tacky vin­tage posters, fresh pot­ted plants adorn­ing the space, and the breezy al­fresco garage canopy area fit for a tête-à-tête. Food-wise, Acme be­stows you the plea­sure of slic­ing your ten­der Texan-styled brisket while savour­ing its smooth, beefy tex­ture that doesn’t re­quire a hint of ketchup or sauce on the side. Be­sides meat, there’s the com­fort of their spe­cialised Southern menu and bits of Asian de­lights. Don’t forget to check out their ar­ray of sweet treats, their wine list, beers and cock­tails. Pork-free. Credit cards ac­cepted. MonThu & Sun, 10am-12mid­night; FriSat, 10am-1am. $$$ the tra­di­tion­al­ists, whole­meal for healthy eaters or honey oat for the ar­ti­sans. Then your choice of beef, pork, chicken or lamb patty can be topped with, well, nearly any­thing. Our favourites are the su­per spicy chilli queso and a clas­sic fried egg. If you’re feel­ing fruity, throw on a few slices of grilled ba­nana or pineap­ple. If you’re not a fan of bar­be­cue sauce, try the roasted gar­lic aioli, curry re­moulade, blue cheese dress­ing, peanut but­ter or... Nutella? A spe­cial men­tion also goes to the ul­ti­mate ‘Fat Bas­terd’. Get down and dirty and in­dulge in a whop­ping dou­ble patty (beef, lamb or pork), topped with mouth-wa­ter­ing ched­dar cheese, fried egg, home­made bar­be­cue sauce, and the holy grail of in­gre­di­ents for burg­ers, ba­con. This mas­ter­piece is served with a gen­er­ous amount of thick-cut potato fries. Even though burg­ers are main draw, Fat­boy’s also of­fers other mains if you’re not in the mood. Credit cards ac­cepted. (Pub­lika) MonThu & Sun, 11am-11pm; Fri-Sat, 11am-12mid­night. (Av­enue K) Daily, 11am-10pm. $$ & Sun, 11am-11pm; Fri-Sat, 11am-12.30am. $$$
