Sis & Co @ Kampung Kayu Ara – A good cafe to end a stressful day.

My friend had a stressful day today at work, so I wanted to cheer him up a bit. Among the cafes we have visited together, he seem to enjoy the ones that has open shop in what used to be a factory? A warehouse?  This sort of cafe usualy has its own charm, the history, what it used to be, those elements are captured and retained in the current establishment. So yea, was looking around on Google for something that fits the bill and came across Sis & Co.



First thing that you’d notice is that the cafe is big, bigger than the usual ones we see around. Due to the spaciousness, table arrangements were awesome, plenty of space from one table to another. They had old school English songs playing on the radio which besides good food and ambiance, also plays a crucial role in relaxing a stressful person. Food was delicious and arrived pretty fast. Put all this together and it is no wonder mi amigo enjoyed his time here.


Watermelon Juice, 10 ringgit + Cocohut, 16 ringgit


While waiting for food to arrive, we decided on some drinks. The Watermelon Juice was refreshing. A good drink to have after a stressful day at work. The Cocohut was delicious. It was a coconut smoothie with a scoop of coconut ice cream and bits of coconut scattered everywhere. This tasted really good. Literally every mouth you take – you get some smoothie with bits of crunchy, chewy coconut. The smoothie itself is different in the sense that they do not use yogurt to make it, instead, they use some santan/coconut milk. Contrary to the santan we Malaysians are accustomed to – the thick and a lil over the top sweet kind, the one used here was decently sweet and not to thick. I am a fan, loved it.


Sweet Potato Fries, 9 ringgit


The fries were decent. It was basically chunks of sweet potatoes fried with a lil flour batter. Just wished the sweet potatoes were a lil sweeter but other than that, it was good. Looking forward to trying their Cajun Fries the next time I am here.


Piggie Pesto, 29 ringgit


This was good. It was a classic pesto pasta with smoked pork bacon and pork croutons. A lil dryer than the pesto pastas I usually have and with a whole lot lesser pesto sauce but it was nevertheless tasty. The pork croutons was a creative inclusion, it certainly did add flavor and some chewyness to this dish. There were button mushrooms scattered all over which added more texture to the dish. Overall, a good dish.


Would I head here again?

Ooo yes I would. I had a good time here, looking forward to more.
