We had the morning free and so we decided to head out for a short drive, aimlessly. About 25 minutes later, we ended up in Kepong, Bandar Menjelara to be exact. We initially thought of dropping by a friends place unannounced but once we’ve arrived, it was apparent that no one was around.
Oh well, the next best thing was to go and have ourselves a nice, hearty brunch. After some online search, we decided on heading Skinny Dip. The reviews on them were pretty good and positive and come on, doesn’t the words “Skinny Dip” itself pique your interest? Mine certainly did. Cheeky, cheeky.
It was just me by the time we headed to this cafe. My friend decided to ditch me and head over to her boyfriends’ office nearby. *Sob sob* Whateverlah. Anyways, I was perhaps their first customer for the day as I arrived about 10 minutes after they open doors. Had the whole place to my self and I sure did enjoy every minute of it.
The eatery is warm and cozy. You can opt to sit outdoor or indoor. While I’d certainly enjoy sitting with the greens outside and breathing in some good air while I am at it, it still was somewhat hazy and so, heading in was the better choice. The inside had a cheerful and inviting vibe to it, a similar feel to 28 Fireplace in Ampang. I liked it.
I thought this cafe solely offers food of the Western variety but color me surprise when I saw Mee Siam, Maggi Goreng, porridge, fried rice and Shawarma on their Menu. Their food offering sure is versatile, judging from the variety. Interesting.
Cheeky Shawarma, 24 ringgit + Butter Spinach, 5 ringgit
I opted for this Middle Eastern inspired dish because it has been ages since I’ve sunk my mouth into one and boy, do I miss it. The Cheeky Shawarma was good, yummy. It came with 2 pieces of stuffed chicken wrap. The filling consisted of flavorful seasoned chicken slices + shredded cucumber, carrot and red cabbage. Besides that, the dish was also accompanied with a side of fries and apple salad. I however, decided to add on an additional side – buttered spinach. I loveeee spinach and ooooooo this was real good. It was thick and gooey. Yum! Be sure to keep an empty stomach if you decide to go for Cheeky Shawarma because it is filling. You’d be stuffed by the end of it.
