As I had a couple of meetings in Old Klang Road, I figured today would be a good day to drop by this new eatery, which officially opened just over a month ago.. I’ve heard lots of good things about it – my friends loved the fact that is hidden, tucked in a quiet neighborhood, away from the usual OUG cafe scene, they were raving about the brownies and the bread offerings as well as the ambiance – it was welcoming, cozy and quiet, exactly what they needed to relax. It certainly did pique my interest and so, here I was.
It certainly was hidden,tucked in a quiet neighborhood. I didn’t even know this row of shops existed. You’d most probably drive passed it if you are not intentionally looking for it as it is understated, not the kind of eatery that is obvious and ‘in your face’. It simply exists.
Once you head inside, it is cozy and nice. Do pay attention here as I did not. I was replying emails on my phone and my mind was elsewhere as I was entering and was quickly ushered in and to a table by the friendly guy at the counter – this lead me to miss an important part. While busy on my phone, I missed the brownie that my friend was raving about as well as their banana bread. The items on display are not listed on the Menu. Why? I do not know. So, if you were busy on the phone like me, you’d most probably miss these items at the entrance and order food solely based on the Menu.
** They have wifi here and power sockets at each table, so you guys would be able to hang out and get some work done.
So yea, as you can see, none of the items on display near the entrance are listed on the Menu. Blink and you might miss it 🙂
I did stop by on my way out, simply to check out what they offer. The guy at the counter, he said that whichever item I was interested in, place an order and they will get me a fresh one. It was kindda fascinating when he told me I could touch it. So yea, I spend a good minute touching and poking them goodies. I think they are real, as in the actual items but a mummified version. Interesting, lol.
Tamagoyaki Sando, 18 ringgit
Among all the items listed in their ‘Specials’ section, this was the crowd favorite. The Tamagoyaki Sando may look small but do not underestimate it. I thought the same too, hence why I ordered myself another dish – Toast with Kaya, but halfway through this, I was already filled up.
The bread came with a nice dose of wasabi and some curried mayo? The thick patty in the middle is apparently Japanese omelette. I wouldn’t have known if I did not google the word ‘Tomagoyaki.’ It had a thin crispy outer layer and on the inside, sponge-y and soft. It felt like a nugget, if that makes sense. The texture was good, the flavors were rather unusual yet tasty. Overall, this was an awesome sandwich.
Toast with Kaya, 10 ringgit
If you fancy something simple, the toast with kaya would be a good choice. Minus the unsalted butter, everything else – the bread and kaya, is homemade. The kaya was nice, with just the right amount of sweetness. The texture was nice, it was more towards the thick and creamy side of the spectrum. Awesome. The toast itself, although it came with just a single slice, they made up for it in its thickness.
