Happy New Year, errrbodayyy!! Hope 2023 will be an even better year for all of us 😁😁
We ended up at Kooky Plate for lunch this time. This month old cafe is fast becoming a crowd favorite. It the name sounds familiar, it’s most likely because of Kooky Cream, a popular dessert cafe in PJ – Kooky Cream @ The Hub SS 2, PJ – Oooo my, Peanut Butter Banana cake. Yummmm! and Bangsar – Kooky Cream at Jalan Kemuja, Bangsar – Desserts & Toasties 😁 (Pork free) . Yes, these cafes are all run by the same folks.
One major difference between Kooky Plate and Kooky Cream is that Kooky Plate serves main meals on top of desserts, it is not just a dessert cafe. Of course, one can still find some of their popular cakes available here. Besides that though, pasta, rice, noodles, big breakfast, pancakes and etc. are all avialble here.
If you aren’t familiar with Jalan Yap Ah Shak, just know that it where Jalan Kamunting and Heritage Row is. This part of Chow Kit is both a local and tourist hotspot thanks to the many eateries in the area.
It was fully crowded by the time we arrived for lunch. So, we ended up sitting outside which ended up being a nice experience. First of all, there was a fan on the ceiling directly above our table which meant none of us had to worry about sweating and feeling hot. Secondly, it was an absolute delight sitting there was watching people walking past and cars driving by.
Big Breakfast, RM 30 + Nasi Kerabu, RM 28
Food was nice. The Nasi Kerabu here came with a twist. The dish consisted of blue pea rice, crackers, ayam perchik, ulam and cili. Rather than the usual traditional ulam, here, it included a mix of rocket leaves, cheese, chicken floss and strips of something purple. It may be just one part of the whole dish but once everything is mixed up, it becomes evident quickly that it does play a big part in providing a unique twist to the Nasi Kerabu. The chicken was cooked perfectly and the perchik sauce was delicious. The dish as a whole was tasty.
One of the popular dishes here is their Big Breakfast. It included scrambled egg, toasted bread, roasted potato, mushroom, salad and 2 pieces of chicken sausages made in house. It sure was a yummy dish. All items on the plate was delicious. I’ve got no complains.
Overall, we had a good time at Kooky Plate. I wouldn’t mind dropping by for another visit in the evening. Highly likely will end up sitting outside again while sipping on a cuppa coffee and indulge in some people watching.
