Having a hard time choosing between coffee or me, darling? (=
Now you need not be in this dilemma again as you could hit two birds with one stone over here at COFFEE ME DARLING, spending some precious and yummy time with your loved ones.
Nestled at the ever briskly neighbourhood of SS2, Coffee Me Darling sets forth with its unique twist of Asian fusion fare that somehow will open up your mind inquisitively while having an enjoyable savoring time within its cozy confines. This café is the brainchild of Alex who aspires to serve up a homey array of tantalizing dishes that are close and familiar to our local tastebuds, whilst spicing it up by injecting some creative Western tweaks to it.
And the coffee brewing station is helmed by a skillful barista who has crafted his name in the coffee scene after being crowned as champion at the recent latte art throw down tournament. Well, let’s adjourn the coffee stories a little while to make way for what’s fresh and tastefully been prepared from the kitchen first.
CAULIFLOWER SOUP – MYR9.90
Something new and interesting here. Instead the usual broccoli or pumpkin soup, our palate is pleasantly amused by this light and savoury veggie soup.
WILD MUSHROOM SOUP – MYR9.90
Or traditionalist, there is still tasty mushroom soup available for you.
BIG BREAKFAST – MYR21.90
Have a choice from either sunny side up, scrambled or poached egg, to be paired with Vienna sausage, turkey ham, beet bacon or smoke salmon to make a wholesome plate to kick start your day nutritiously.
TENGKU TAN BENEDICT – MYR15.90
Somewhat newfangled way of serving the crowd’s favourite egg Benedict, seated atop loads of fragrantly sautéed mushrooms, drizzled with hollandaise alongside fresh greens.
EGG IN A BASKET – MYR12.90
Temptingly encased in the middle within a fluffy loaf slice that when put together provides a delectable nuance of soft-gooey texture. Somehow reminds me of the sinful but yummy Croque Monsieur too, hehe.
TURKEY HAM CARBONARA – MYR21.90
Fettuccine is decently done al dente and served in mild creamy carbonara sauce, add on with saporous pieces of turkey ham. Light and not overly creamy.
MINESTRONE SOUP WITH PENNE – MYR12.90
Now your soup no longer a lone ranger anymore (=
Have it appetizingly now with penne pasta together with the sweet-sour minestrone soup. I find myself kinda enjoy this bowl of soupy pasta rather than with the usual macaroni. It’s not spicy thus children-friendly too.
THE IKAN PERCIK WITH LEMONGRASS PILAF RICE – MYR22.90
A healthier version of percik recipe I would say. The fish fillet was nicely grilled till perfection without any obvious charred part, while remaining juicy within. The portion was rather huge as reflected in the thickly cut slab of meat, making it a worthwhile selection.
GRILLED CHICKEN WITH OREGANA MUSHROOM SAUCE – MYR21.90
For the poultry fans, don’t forget to leave the café without trying this tenderly grilled chicken, dished up toothsomely with mushrooms, broccoli and potatoes as sides. The meat was thoroughly marinated that it tasted good even by itself without any sauce.
LOTUS ROOT CHIPS WITH WATCH CURRY – MYR8.90
Another recommended bites would be this brilliantly done lotus roots that are deep fried to perfection. Thin and crispy natural root chips that are fried till golden brown and ready to be served hot from the kitchen with light sprinkles of salt. Should you prefer some heavier taste, you could always help yourself with the promising watch curry dipping that surely will get you hooked on for more!
Chilled beverages come just in time to clear down the throat after he scrumptious feast.
WENSBERRY BLISS (MYR 13.90)
STRAWBERRY LEMON SLUSH (MYR 12.90)
Voila, soon it’s coffee time!
Coffee Me Darling currently is using a Java Sumatra blend that is of medium-dark roasted, to present diners a pleasant palate of medium body, with less acidity, fruity and nutty profile. All coffee served here are of ristretto, good news? ^^
CAFÉ LATTE (MYR 10)
TAUFUFA COFFEE (MYR 12.90)
Finally found another creative twist for tau fu fa. This time not in dessert but with coffee (=
MATCHA LATTE (MYR 10.90)
CAPPUCINO (MYR 10.90)
This doughnut dome cuppa is only available exclusively here yea! Get ready to slurp in the smooth and velvet foam, nyummm………………
Was lucky to have a quick crash coffee course with the affable barista, Ian! Thanks very much for you guidance! Guess now I have more confidence in pulling my cup of latte art for a better improvised attempt next round!
Pretty cool huh? Hehe
Ah, what’s missing? Dessert you say? Hehe
Fret not, as the meal would definitely be wrapped up on a sweet note for that memorable dining darlingly………
SMORES DIP (MYR 15.90)
Wow! After barbequed smores, now let’s try flambeaud smores instead.
Certainly the ideal way to melt your lover’s heart, no? =)

Do you ever curious to find out if there is any cafes or eateries that is literally soulfully dedicated to waffle delights as their cartes du jour? Now you could satisfy your craving for this lovely and fluffy pastry over here at the quaint waffle house of Chequers, located at the ever lively neighborhood of TTDI.
Serving mainly American-inspired
dishes with waffle as their signature, be it on a sweet or savoury
note. The theme is also embodied throughout their interior design which welcomes
the patrons with versatile decoration of squarish boxes that resembles waffles
as well as numerous scenic paintings hanging at the wall, reminiscing the daily
lives of the folks in the United States.
Chequers KL aims to serve up a hearty array of not only good, tasty American staples, but also comfort food to your soul. Most of the sauces are deliciously made inhouse which includes the lip-smacking curry mayo which we enjoyed promisingly during the tasting session and several other noteworthy relish creations too. Over here, your usual ubiquitous main meals are innovatively substituted with house-specialty- soft waffles, all get executed alluringly as your ‘burger’, ‘sandwich’, ‘toastie’, dessert plate like Tiramisu too and many more. On top of that, Chequers also serve up a wholesome rendition of poultry recipes that are equally delightful to the taste bud.
Let’s have a quick rundown of the highlighted recommendations from the kitchen of Chequers KL!
DOWN HOME BENNY – MYR19.00
Savory waffle, beef bacon, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, guacamole and watercress salad, beautifully garnished and interesting served than the usual Egg Benedict breakfast you see elsewhere.
MOO MOO – MYR28.00
Their signature waffle burger made with seasoned striploin beef patty seared to perfection. Served with homemade berry barbeque sauce, beef bacon, cheddar cheese, raisin slaw, and pickled relish. Comes with waffle fries too.
DOUBLE DECK CROQUE MONSIEUR – MYR18.00
Savory waffle, turkey ham and tomato wrapped with egg, served with cheese sauce, topped with a sunny side up- just the usual scene you would see any American enjoying their fave toastie!
CHICKEN COBB SANDWICH – MYR25.00
Now we have savory waffle sandwiching the marinated grilled chicken, beef bacon, sliced tomato, boiled egg, guacamole, curry mayo and waffle fries, for a change of tender chicken meat too.
MANGO SHRIMP WRAP – MYR23.00
Sautéed tiger prawns wrapped with marie rose sauce, tomato salsa, fresh mango and lettuce, comes with waffle fries. Light and wholesome! Love the sweetness that got exuded by the mango bits in between while chewing the juicy prawns, slurps!
POMODORO PASTA – MYR16.00
Fettucine topped with a savoury Pomodoro sauce, cherry tomato, basil and black olives, served with succulent chicken thigh meat and luscious bacon streaks!
PESTO SEABASS – MYR34.00
Pan seared seabass cooked to perfection on a bed of pesto sauce. Served with seasoned roasted potatoes and stir fried asparagus topped with crispy ginger.
MELTING MOMENTS – MYR17.00
Chocolate chip waffle hand battered banana fritters, almond nibs, vanilla ice cream drizzled caramel and chocolate sauce. However, the bananas fritter is tad oily to my liking, other than that, i really enjoyed them.
TROPIC COCONUT – MYR17.00
Coconut waffle, fresh coconut meat, roasted almonds, coconut ice cream, fragrant pandan sauce.
This was really terrific and no qualms was my best dessert pick of the day!
DECONSTRUCTED TIRAMISU – MYR14.00
Disassembled into waffle sticks, mascarpone cheese with chocolate shavings and a side of espresso shot. Definitely not your average joe- as opposing to the usual crowds, where tiramisu is served only in a cup or cake.
Now is the perfect time to down the meal with some good cup of coffee. Currently brewing fresh from the La Cimbali is the primo quarto- a balanced blend of Indonesia Mandheling, Papua New Guinea, Brazil and Ethiopian. Greet your palate with a smooth, aromatic body, and ends with a robust, nutty aftertaste.
MOCHA (MYR 12)
LATTE (MYR 10)
MATCHA LATTE (MYR 12)
I particularly enjoyed their house smoothies, which uses real nutritious yogurt to be blended with fresh fruits of your choice. Am glad that there is no ice creams blended miserably in my beverage but just a pure toothsome healthy yogurt drink. Available at MYR 13 each.
It was definitely a ‘food-full’ or a rather ‘waffle-full’ night that everyone went back with a happy tummy in addition to newly-acquired culinary twist that certainly would tickle the taste buds amusingly. Remember to check this place out for a delish and homey meal with family members and buddies alike.

Serving classic and contemporary lobster dishes, Pince & Pints Restaurant and Bar is the definitive destination for lobster bar quintessentially, offering freshly succulent and quality lobsters at accessible prices.

In times of such fast-paced life the metropolis is riding now, it’s not easy to really find hearty, wholesome dishes that are deliciously served while keeping prices reasonable and yet raising the bar in terms of freshness and inventiveness. Unless you have a bigger budget to indulge in daily, most city folks would resort to fast food as the current world dictates everything to be speedy execution from food preparation to work. Thankfully, there is once café that actually takes the pain of cooking from scratch everyday so to live up to the motto of eating fresh and staying healthily. Residing along one of the many busy streets of TTDI is the home for CAFE LAFAYETTE, which has been gracing the neighbourhood early this year. Founded by a passionate and whimsical entrepreneur-cum-barista, his shrewd wittiness is reflected in both his culinary menu as well as decoration of the interior itself.
Securing either a dim and cozy lighting at one corner or a romantic set up perfect for some vis-à-vis session at the other nook, both absolutely makes a comfy dining of this Italian fusion-stemmed concept establishment.
Most sauce are inhouse made, aptly acknowledged for the effortfully work of heart and soul, whereby the sauce is only freshly made upon order, unlike the common commercial way which most would prepare the sauce in bulk quantity beforehand. Hence creating the balanced nuance, perfecting the overall taste in each dishes. Even the pesto sauce is also freshly blended from basil leaves. This definitely deserves a great kudos!
All coffee here are served double shot- medium roasted house blend with mild fruity body of Tanzanian and Sumatra.
For appetizer, you could start off with…………
FRIED MOZZARELLA (MYR 12.90)
MUSHROOM RISOTTO (MYR 15.90)
Italian mixed herbs with mushroom risotto using Swiss cream. Good stuff here and highly recommended!
SALMON SPAGHETTI (MYR 18.90)
Chunky bites of salmon cubes with tomato puree and olive oil in a light creamy gravy.
PESTO DI SALMON (MYR 24.90)
This has got to be my favourite as compared to the tomato gravy type, for its lighter and less fishy taste. Springy pasta is done al dente, and generously mixed with the fragrant green herbs.
HAWAIIAN CHICKEN CHOP (MYR 19.90)
A huge slab of meat served bounteously with savoury gravy, pleasing bites of mashed potato to go with the thoroughly marinated succulent chicken meat, and garden salad as sides.
RETROMARCIA CORDON BLEU FISH (MYR 26.90)
Love the uber juicy and moist fish. It was cleverly executed that if I wasn’t been told, I wouldn’t have known it was a Dory for the fish meat is toothsomely marinated with herbs. Good camouflage but a pleasantly surprise one!
Up and coming new dishes for weekend grubs!
BALSAMIC MUSHROOM BEEF (MYR 24.90)
Beef pan fired with button mushroom, oyster mushroom, onion and balsamic vinegar and served with mashed potato and croissant.
Using specifically tenderloin cut, diners get to savour a delectably juicy meat that is adequately soaked with the relish flavourfully alongside savory curry gravy. All in all, it creates a smooth composition and zestly appetizing with subtle tartness to the taste bud.
The croissant actually reminds me of the oriental fare- dipping mantou bun with curry like at Pince & PInts or any thick gravy at Tim Ho Wan, hehe.....
CHICKEN ROULADE (MYR 20.90)
Chicken rolled in sautéed mushroom, red pepper and onion, served with mashed potato and nachos.
Again, a heavy dosage of herbs is used to complement the sapid dish gracefully as well as tastefully too. The nicely rolled poultry is stuffed with assorted spiced fillings that lends a very vibrant and saporous hint, that goes really well with their inhouse prepared chunky mashed potatoes. I just can’t get enough of the mashed spuds! Hehe……………………….
BBQ CHICKEN TIKKA (MYR 20.90)
Spiced chicken grilled with green peppers, pineapples and onions, served with croissant.
Would be better if the pineapple cubes have been served more, for that engaging savoury-sweet bites!
After the delightful feast, time to clear the throat with some cooling beverage along some brilliant presentation of cup of Joe too (=
CHOCORUM (MYR 13)
One of my fave beverage pick!
Never thought that the cocoa could actually blend in quite well with the rum taste, making this an unique blend. Something special and children-friendly i suppose, hehe.
COOL PRESS JUICE (MYR 9)
Orange or green apple
HOT CHOCOLATE (MYR 11)
ROSE CAFÉ LATTE (MYR 11)
An aromatic cuppa with a dainty hint of floral………..
THE HIVE (MYR 12)
Iced Coffee added with honey and frothed milk for extra smoothness. Nyummmm………… I like it very much!
Everyone was full to the brim at the end of the session and we went home with a happy tummy. Guess I would be missing the risotto and pesto plates for now, surely looking forward to another return soon. Do check it out guys!

It’s been some time ago since we last attended coffee appreciation class at Università delCaffè della Malesia (UDC). And upon hearing another session gonna be carried out at CAFFÉ CREAMA at Plaza Mont Kiara, we jumped on the invitation call and headed to the café albeit on an early morning over the weekend. After all, it fits the punch line, doesn’t it? (=
For that day, early risers like us were introduced to several specialty blends along with some info sharing of the respective beans origin by Elvin, the owner of Caffé Crema who
is a real passionate coffee lover, often travels to Italy to keep abreast of the region latest tech-savvy; Polaris of Coffee Machine- La Marzocco. Being in the coffee roasting scene himself, he’s glad to see the evolving interest on gourmet coffee among the community nowadays, catapulted from our childhood brand of US big brands to coffee aficionado of third wave boutique coffees. Indeed an interesting coffee journey right?
Hence, Caffé Crema was borned and cultivated into a nice, comfortable enclave that easily spurs anyone into merry mood by its vinyl disc melodious tunes playing at the background upon stepping in. The ambiance is further accentuated aesthetically with the redesigned work of the junkyard woods that turns out surprisingly really beautiful such as the cable drum that is made into a lounge-styled table for the skyjuice. In a nutshell, everything is kept to be simple and echt- epitome of a real coffee-centric establishment.
New Guinea, Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and Indonesia
smooth chocolate, raisins, dried figs, caramel and overtones of tangerine.
The profile is smoother due to Ethiopian, floral and fruitiness
The second blend happens to my personal preference, Black Owl Blend.
Brazil and Columbia
delightful aroma of chocolate and honey. Sweet acidity, malty characteristics, deep balance and bold syrupy mouth feel.
This 2 region blend boast a more nutty and chocolaty aftertaste
Each cup of Joe served here are measured precisely for consistency in sizes, where each grinded coffee beans would be first weighted to that desired amount before start brewing you espresso shot. Once you have got these items in orderly checked; Skill + Grinder + Coffee Machine + Milk, you’re off to a good start!
Coffee drinking is a serious affair here, where it is encouraged to slowly enjoy and sip you coffee as it is, without any soya milk (as that kills the coffee aroma), skimmed milk or syrup. Of course, thorough appreciation of black coffee is not achieved overnight, so am still holding on to my milk-based latte if not cold drip at times (= Some 3D Kitty art for your latte perhaps? It's all imported from Japan
And pairing it with sandwich (whether toasted or original), is a good idea too.
The best time recommended to have coffee is between 0930 to 1130 in the morning for that’s the prime time for the coffee to help boosts up energy level, or 1330 to 1800 later of the day. However, it’s still very much depends on individual. Not advised to have it at night as caffeine needs up to 8 hours for it to digest properly, unless you’re prepared to guard throughout the night, haha…..
Do you know that Nordic countries like Norway, Finland and Iceland score one of the highest coffee drinkers in the world? Voila! ^^ Currently the most expensive coffee is crowned by Black Ivory which costs up to $50 for a cup, or two, if you’re lucky enough, due to its scarcity.
With passion, you’ll find good quality coffee that leads to your very own specialty coffee which eventually creates a memorable and personalized coffee experience.
