Recently I see alot of influencers featuring this cafe in UNDERWOOD Bakers Restaurant & Coffee in  Bukit Bintang.  Also, it is not really in Bukit Bintang,  actually behind  Havana  Bar & Grill in  Changkat Bukit Bintang.  Been a while since I last do Cafe Hopping.DSCF6416

Certainly a cafe that have very nice ambiance. If you do jog around the area and looking for morning coffee, chill area, I am sure this cafe is one of a perfect spot.DSCF6444

Indoor is a touch of chill industrial kind of concept and there are some seating’s behind is filled with natural lighting. They do have more seating’s at level one. natural lighting spacepastries in klSome pastries for you to pick and try

Lets go to food. Usually in a menu, anything with broiche i will certainly order. french toastthis is  Eggy Brioche Toast @ RM  28. French toast, beef bacon, coffee caramel, berries, crumbs and mascarpone. coffee caramelOh  well,  do  not  think this dish can go wrong. French toast like undercook that make it like pudding texture. Abit eggy taste (could be to suits its menu name). Coffee Caramel is nice but overall flavour is not balance. It is very separated. ice coffee latte Then Ice Latte @ RM 14 which is slightly on the high side. I believe they are using Arabica beans as the first sip is heavy burnt taste and single dimension. Cinnamon Danish @ RM 7. Its not fresh and its hard!  wood fire pizza Then I saw wood fire pizza stove, pizza should be great as its a sourdough pizza series.

UNDERWOOD Baker's Restaurant & CoffeePizza  ordered half & half to try out flavours : Truffle Mushroom & Trio Meat @ RM 38
Pizza dough is good as it is done wood fire oven. However the base of truffle mushroom was too salty for me and Trio meat jalapeno is not spread evenly with alot  lumps of it.

cafe with outdoor seatingUNDERWOOD Baker

Overall, a great place for ambiance only. Ambiance 4/5. Food 1/5. One of a new cafe in KL 2022.

Nah nah nah, this is only on my taste bud. Please do not take me as a guideline. please do go try yourself as Google review they got 4.2 star ya. Could be also suitable for those of you have strong palate.

Kara Kara in Weld Quey that just opens its door last year had made it a big hype. It is like one of a must go bar or even afternoon tea area. However I find it so so only as in the afternoon when we arrive at 4pm, it is like a bar look at night. They serve cakes, tea and coffee.

I guess it was a random fate that connect me to Ming Art owner as I was doing Vlog at New World Park Food court to cover this famous Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng have move to new location. AS I was recording half way, he drop by to say hi and thought I look familiar and then he recall by me doing review on Mattress.

that is where we exchange card and told me to drop by his cafe in Gurney Paragon in later day. (this was over 4 months ago)

Gurney Paragon Mall

Here I am at his cafe in Gurney Paragon Mall, Penang. Quite a cozy cafe in this heritage building inside Gurney Paragon. A modern industrial cafe cross over with fine art gallery in Penang.

Ming art Cafe

I do not mind to come back here for afternoon chilling as it is quiet.

Gurney Paragon

This is by far my most unique combination of drinks for the evening. A great French wine and He then introduce me one of their cafe signature Latte with Pure 100% milk.

Latte with pure fresh milk

He share with me why the coffee float on top because on milk is 100% pure. Just drink first gulp before stir it. The taste is rather interesting and their bean is awesome. It was a great combination of pure milk and the layer of coffee with its milk combine very well. It just breaks down the layer of coffee and milk very prominent that you can enjoy it.

Recommended!

Ming Art (5)

In this cafe he mention he do cater for alot of people who loves to come to his place for a glass of wine while enjoying arts which is available. That is why a small bottle.

french wine in penang

In this evening, I also learnt alot about wine and also difference in Premium crystal glass vs normal glass. He share with me his private crystal glass collection, the sound of it and how different the taste of a normal wine pour in 2 different glass.

Instantly, the RM900 premium crystal wine glass, SAME WINE but different taste. It is so prominent that the same wine pour into the premium wine glass taste so much better. It opens up the aroma of the wine and layer of taste. Makes it smoother too. ~interesting.

Ming art Fine Art

If you think facing cafe is boring, then face the art gallery. Right behind there is 2 hidden table which is for his exclusive guess that bought alot of the arts.

Ming art Paragon

there is alot version of arts from abstract, fine, hard brush, imagination, digital and many others which is available and I am surpise to see that alot of our local arts are being sold to foreign collators. He do share with me that actually there are alot of artist talanted artist from the North are all over the world making their names out there. Just that locally we do not know.

this is kinda sad.

On and off he do have event that brings Malaysia artist together especially working closely with a few communities Art in Malaysia for this. I am definitely in support of this.

Ming Art Gallery Paragon

Art and wine is like one of the best combination. Learn to see how a painter express their imagination or emotions. It is indeed very interesting. One of a art gallery in Penang worth to Explore.

Those of you looking forward to feature your art, sell or buy, call or drop by this place to look for Alvin Chia or visit their homepage : Ming Fine Art One of a art gallery in Malaysia.

Among many of my friends that have visited De Wan 1958 by Chef Wan at The Linc, KL indeed gave a good review and thumbs up for this place, till recently I get to try along for a private function. No doubt it is indeed serve pretty good Malay cuisine.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan

I was here on weekdays so was told the crowd is not huge and it is pretty full house over the weekend. It is highly advisable to make a reservation before you come. This is to avoid any private functions that they have too.

Curious about their menu and price (click here)

Best of all, they have private dining room available that can sit up to 10 pax.

As the food was serve, the smell of those spicies and curies instantly makes me hungry.

Cucur Udang is classic street food and it is done right. Dipping with both satay and chili sauce is just perfect.

de wan by chef wan

Starting off with a classic dish – Pucuk Paku that is cook to perfection. Not too soft yet I can still bite slight crunchy texture of the veggie and sqeezing a bit of limau indeed enhance the flavour.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (5)

Udang Kari Hijau Telur Masin is indeed one of the highlight for the night. Prawn is fresh and big. Sauce is sticky with a bit of twist. Hint of chili skin after taste and the telur masin not overpowering yet goes very well with the whole flavour.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (7)

you will never go wrong with dishes that is bakar. The only thing is the ingredient must be fresh. Jumbo Sotong Bakar with Sambal Colik is indeed spot on. Ia mixture like of Indonesia x local malay taste infuse for the sauces.

De.Wan 1958 by Chef Wan (8)

We got serve with 2 types of rice and it is recommended.

  1. Nasi Lemuni Berseri Perlils
  2. Nasi Telur Terrenganu

de.wan

For curries they serve Daging Rendang Selangor. Spices are mix well and with the right amout, every one have their own version of curries recipe and I find it is qood.

Some will be stronger in spices, some is stronger in spicy but I like this. Both balance of spices and mild spicy, that can easily goes well with your rice.

the linc kl

Ayam Masak Merah Chef Wan  is abit more solid. Slightly strong in spicy end with mild sweetness. Chicken is soft and juicy.

de. wan

This is the first time I am having Umbut Kelapa Lemak Solok Lada. I find the taste is quite interesting. cook with a kind of noodle in it and I think those of you have never try before, I believe it is a dish worth to explore.

chef wan restaurant

If you have the budget and looking for nice ambiance or atas great classic Malay food, then I believe you can check out Chef Wan restaurant in KL.
