I needed a spot to simply wind down and chill, spend a few hours on my laptop and then go my own way. For that, I decided to head to Round. This relatively new cafe is located at Block B of Happy Mansion. It is unique in the sense that during the day, it is a coffee + light bites cafe and during the night (6 pm onwards), it’s a pizza restaurant.
Round occupies a corner lot and if I am not mistaken, they’ve taken over a spot that was previously occupied by Food Foundry. Now, it is Round. I like the vibe in this cafe. All corners are made up of glass panels that allows light in, so what you’d get is a brightly lit space, which I very much liked. At that point in time, it was just me and 2 other people , I literally had the cafe all to myself. It was all good
Watermelon Cold Pressed Juice, RM 16 + Apple Ginger Crumble, RM 16
The Apple Ginger Crumble was da bomb! I absolutely loved it. You’d get this pretty large bar of Apple Crumble, with sweetened cubes of dried ginger. Why didn’t I ever think of this combination? Even if I thought about it, I most likely wouldn’t have thought that it would make a good combination. This one here thought me otherwise. I liked it. This dessert had just the right amount of sweetness and surprisingly dense too. One would think Apple Crumble meant that it could easily break apart but the one here was dense enough to be able to stick together. Every so often, you’d bite into the sweetened ginger which only further elevated the deliciousness of this dessert. I honestly wouldn’t mind having another go at it.
The Watermelon Cold Pressed Juice was refreshing. If I was not mistaken, it was made in house and certainly the thirst quencher I needed after a day filled with meetings.
I enjoyed myself spending a few hours at Round, simply passing time while also getting some work done. I liked that I had the space mostly to myself, no one bothered me, I was left to my own devices. I would not mind dropping by again for another taste of that Apple Ginger Crumble.
