So, here we were again, revisiting this cafe. This would be our second visit here to date. With the gloomy weather of late, due to the constant and frequent downpour … for some reason, this cafe popped up on my mind, it seemed like a good spot for me to enjoy the weather and also bask in some much needed alone time 🙂
Parking? Yup, parking sometimes is a pain here. I parked at the same place I did during my last visit here – at 5 Elements Hotel. If you wanna know more, do read our previous post on The Toast Co.: The Toast Co. @ Petaling Street – Another Hidden Cafe
A year on and it still looked the same. Still exuded the same feel too – chilled out, relaxed vibe. I had the whole place to myself – yay! Just me, myself and I 🙂 and of course, the gloomy for company.
They seem to have expanded their menu. One blatantly obvious addition was the Rice Bowl option, which was not around during my first visit. So, of course I had to give it a try …
Cajun Butter Shrimp, 19 ringgit + Pesto Pasta, 15 ringgit
When I ordered the rice bowl, I did not really read the fine print, the one where they explain what the dish consisted of? Nope, I simple ready the heading and chose the one that appealed most to me, just to retain the element of surprise. The rice bowl was simply yummy! It tasted like a combination of tasty fried rice + sweet buttery sauce + 6, 7 medium sized prawns + egg + crunchy crumbs. Very nice. I truly enjoyed this dish. My friend and I, between the two of us and the first few spoons of this rice bowl – you’d here ‘omaaaaagod’, ‘ yummmmmm’, ‘this is gooood’ … yup, that sums up how much we enjoyed it. Since I decided to pass on the fine print, consider me surprised. I was especially so to find the thick, sweet butter sauce in the rice and at the bottom of the bowl and they provided me with plenty, enough for me to slurp it up. When you mix it all up, for me at least – it tasted like yummy fried rice with sweet, gooey butter sauce gravy and chewy prawn + egg. I’d certainly go for this dish again.
Aaaaa the Pesto Pasta – exactly how I liked it. The consistency was thick and ‘creamy’ but not from the cream/ cheese that usually makes this pasta thick,sticky and gooey. Nope, here it was all the pesto itself, they literally filled the whole dish with pesto, everywhere. Each mouthful had plenty of pesto in it and of course, olive oil. They did not hold back on the walnuts either. Everything was generous in serving. Yumm!
Would I head back here?
Of course, I most certainly will.
