KomPassion - Thai Fusion @ Damansara Kim



A new Thai dining outlet worth checking out. Just opened about a month ago, this place is already getting some serious attention from the media and also food bloggers. I was just there a week ago for lunch and was lucky to meet the people behind this establishment. The three owners are Tan Huat Jin and Desmond Wong (an engineer and fund manager respectively) who are brother-in-laws teamed up with Chef Nikom Uatthong (and hence the name KomPassion) who used to be the food consultant and executive chef at My Elephant to start a Thai Fusion restaurant at Damansara Kim.

 The interior is kept as simple as possible with a raw concept. You can see stainless stell zinc pieces lining the raw concrete walls. The lounge seats are not even wrapped with cushion, which I told them that it would definitely be a problem for some of my friends.


A simple set up with black and grey theme. You can even see how creative they are with the taps that has the lamps hanging on it from the wall. I really think the whole "raw" effect blends in really well. They were also telling me that the 1st floor dining area would be ready soon to cater for bigger groups and also private functions.


The menu consists of fusion thai food and also dishes from the north. Some of the dishes here are not commonly found in the typical thai restaurants and the chef is also very ambitious to create a new menu every 3 months so that food fatigue would be avoided and the patrons can keep coming back for more new dishes.


Pork Satay (RM17.90)
 Tender and juicy grilled pork satay served with their own concoction of satay sauce and kimchi. The pork satay is tasty but I felt that the kimchi didn't really jive with the satay. Maybe psychologically I dislike kimchi and thus my opnion and I find the sauce a little sweet too.

Tom Yum Fish (RM45)
Their tom yum with fish fillet is a recommended dish. I'm used to having tom yum with seafood or chicken but this pot here only have fish fillets and mushrooms. It's big enough for 3-4 people. This is a northen tom yum with a spicy sweet soup base and you can even tell them which level of spiciness you would prefer. I am unadventurous so I started with level 1 and it wasn't very spicy.


Hanglaey Curry Pork Belly (RM35)
This is something special which I have not seen in any menu before. It's another specialty of this outlet and I love the nostalgic potware that they used to serve this dish. The pork belly has 50% fat and 50% lean meat and the curry is really spicy. I love the cashew nuts in this dish that gives it a nutty flavour to the curry and as well a nice crunchy texture.


Tako (RM10)
At first I didn't want any dessert because I was full to the brim but then I was told that I have to really try the tako. Having very little of self control, I went ahead and had a tako. I would have regretted if I didn't! It was so good!! The water chesnut bits was crunchy and it blends in so well with the pudding and salty coconut topping. So good!!

I am coming back for more dishes with more people. Stay tuned! They are quite busy during dinner and thus a reservation is encouraged. The corkage charges are around RM15 per bottle and they do have proper wine glasses.
