I must say, I kindda like chillin’ at this cafe. If I am in desperate need to escape the hustle and bustle of city life but have no time at all to travel the distance, Make Cafe is a good spot that provide me an immediate relieve, especially since it’s only located 10 minutes away from me, in Seputeh. I liked the fact that location wise, it had a ‘kampung’ feel to it, which gives you the semblance of being away from the busy city life. Also, the cafe itself is pretty simply. No fancy decors, artworks and eye catching color tones. Nope, it simply is simple and this simplicity goes pretty well with its surrounding.
Where exactly is it located?? It is by the road side and occupies the ground floor of one of those older, low density flats. Less than a minute away from Glasshouse and Siu Siu Restaurant. If you are not familiar with the area, Waze will lead you there.
** This is the view you’d get when you are in the cafe looking out.
Another thing I like about this cafe is that there are no windows here. If it is a hot day, they will bring down the sun protections and if it is a cool day, you would be able to simply enjoy the natural breeze while doing some people watching and cars passing by.
… and guess what, they have WIFI here 🙂 and a few power sockets here and there. I can totally see myself dropping by soon with my laptop in tow in hopes of getting some work done while sipping on a good cuppa coffee. Yesss!
Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Pancake, 18 ringgit + Devilwich, 18 ringgit
I initially wanted to try one of their rice bowls but I was told that they were sold out. It was 12 pm at that point and I was perplexed. It was the start of lunch time and the items were sold out?? Huh? Apparently, the morning crowd gobbled it all up that they were in the midst of making a new batch. Fair enough. Since we were all hungry, rather than waiting, we opted to go for other dishes.
Both dishes we ordered were simple. The first dish came layered with a piece of pancake + fried chicken + egg. It was yummy having it just like that or you could add on more flavor with the Date Sauce that came on the side.
The Devilwich is basically a sandwich that consisted of a piece of chicken with a nice dose of Devil Curry + guacamole spread + caramelized onions + Japanese omelette. The curry was nice and thick, flavorful too. I preferred to go without the omelette because honestly, I felt like it muted down the flavor of the Devils Curry. So, I removed the omelette and from then on, the sandwich was yummy.
Bubur Cha Cha, 6 ringgit
Neither one of us were full after having our meals and so, we decided to for dessert. Something not too solid and heavy – Bubur Cha Cha fitted the bill. The ‘bubur’ comes with a scoop of coconut ice cream. If you are okay with the dessert being thick and rich, then do let the ice cream melt for a bit because when you mix it all up, that is what you’d get – thick and rich bubur. We on the on the other hand, preferred having it separately because we enjoyed the bubur as it was – slightly watery and not too sweet. I loved the fact that there were loads of sago in it as well as sweet potatoes? We slurped it up real fast that the coconut ice cream left on the side was still intact, solid. Within minute, we ate that up too. Yum!
