Contemporary culture is constantly obsessed with capturing that perfect food shot for the perfect moment until the next hype comes along! Current cafe hype is sweeping Asia, with each new cafe, promising more unique selling points and of course that perfect "food porn" shot for the gramme!
Here is a few of my favorite joints in the Klang Valley where I can zone out with my cuppa and simply stuff myself silly!
I promise to review my picks based not only on gramme worthiness but sweet old wholesome goodness that is worth every calorie!
SoyLab Damansara Utama
If you like soy, you would love this place. The 'soyffle' pancake, topped with soy ice cream has to be the highlight here!
The soy ice cream is so creamy and aromatic and the sweetness is just right! It's a perfect complement to the soufflé pancake.
A weekend queue would take you back an hour or more. If you are pressed for time, try ordering a take-away!
Around the old quarters of shops in Paramount Garden, FLUFF Cafe stands out from the otherwise old conventional style shop around the area.
Fluff cafe boasts freshly made ice-cream, waffles and cakes from their kitchen daily!
The cakes and waffles here are a unique concoction of creamy, crispy, sweet and even salty! The lychée cloud cake and the poo bear waffles are their best selling number!
The place gets pretty packed especially during the weekends and peak tea-time hours. They are open from mid-day, come early to avoid crowds or waiting time! Most in-door cafes when packed, can be very rather loud, in Fluff, some thought was put in the design, with some hanging plants in attempt to perhaps reduce the noise?
Stranger at 47
Nestled at the row of shop that houses the No. 1 Banana Leaf Rice in Petaling Jaya (not necessary true) this cafe was an unassuming surprise.
First, the coffee there really deserves a thumbs up! A friend who has been there on a tinder date rememberers noting much of that evening except for the coffee!
If you have crepes crave, Strangers at 47 makes all sorts from savoury to sweet, nasi lemak to salmon..... with a twist!
The staff there are also young, vibrant and sweet!
........................to be continued, trying my best to filter out all the buzz & hype & ambience but to focus on the REAL THING!
finding the best places is a journey! especially in todays world where the paramount factor is not in the food but the presentation and gramme worthiness!
