We ended up here because we needed a short drive away from what is familiar. Work was stressful of late and a little stress relief was required. Nothing a short drive cant fix.
**Halal status – I asked the person behind the counter, who happened to be a Malay man, on wether the cafe was Halal or not and he said yes, it was. If you have any doubts, do call the cafe directly pls.
Parking: Plenty available right outside and surrounding the cafe. People seem to park everywhere here, lol. So, I do not think you’d need to worry about ‘kena saman’.
We arrived at 11.10 am and it was quiet, with just us as customers. Fast forward 45 minutes later, and the cafe started filling up rapidly. It was obvious that this eatery is a favorite lunch spot, especially for the working folks nearby.
When I first stepped in, I was expecting the usual pasta and burgers being served here. It is after all a cafe but to my surprise, they serve an array of dishes. Half of which I did not expect. I liked the fact that they serve dishes with strong local influences – Nasi Lemak, Ayam Percik, Laksa and etc.
Farmer’s Biryani, RM 28.50
When asked, I was told that this was a crowd favorite. I decided to give it a try and have no regrets at all. Oooo man, this dish was da’ bomb. In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting it to be this good. A large service size it was. The rice was fragrant, tasty and came with pieces of cashews. The NZ mutton curry was finger licking good, I kid you not. Not only does it taste soo yummy, the meat was so tender and juicy. An ease to bite into. The dish also came with papadom and pomegranate raita with bits of apple. Overall, a satisfying dish indeed.
Nasi Lemak Kapitan, RM 24.50
Another tasty dish. The rice was a little too dense for my liking but I did like its taste, the pandan infused rice was appealing. The dish came with a side of chicken kapitan and it was served in boneless cubes that was tender. The kapitan gravy was milky and yummy. It was an awesome addition to what would otherwise be a basic nasi lemak dish. Loved it.
Would I head back here? I most certainly would. It took me 30 minutes to get here from KL City Centre. Of course, one needs to take into account the usual traffic jam and etc. The food I’ve tasted so far was delicious and whenever I fancy a drive, I’d keep Farm Cafe in mind.
