The Hub in SS2 seems to be the new flock of F&B joint with tons of cafe are now fully operating in this new area that creating a long beelines among your favourite cafe. I have read quite a few reviews on Flakes in The Hub SS2 and decided to give it a try.

cafe in pj

This is one of a cafe in PJ that famous for is their croissant. Their sweet series seems to be quite tempting.


Flakes (4)

Flakes (5)

Under this new norm, it took us 30 minutes to get a spot here over the weekend.

Flakes (6)

It is full house, and it is quite noisy where the ceiling is low and no carpet in between. So be prepare to talk louder than another table. weekdays will be peaceful here.

Flakes (7)

Try one of their sweet series – Pistachio. RM 9 if not mistaken

Flakes (8)

Flakes (9)

Flakes (10)

Flakes (11)

It seems that their signature is avocado and egg mash. Nothing to shout about, where you can just grab a croissant of the shelf and make it at home. RM 23 if not mistaken

Flakes (12)

For their pulled beef series and caramelize, onion is also the same. (RM 18 if not mistaken)

Both 3 of the croissant is not flaky as many written out there and also quite disappointing. It is bad to read reviews that create high expectation and come out with disappointment.

ss2 hub

Overall that I find the croissant series is so so only over the hype that had been created. Not flaky, fragrant and seems like bake twice. It could be not my choice of croissant and of course to many of you out there. this place is out for me. Certainly there are better cafe in PJ.

A place to gather with your friends yet fancy coffee and cakes over a conversation? One of the place that is serving for pretty cakes is this The Champignons Cake shop in EkoCheras Mall. It is also part of Taste by Champignons.

Lead by this young chef Kingsley Kwoh whom has vast experience overseas that is now bring you his technique and flours to our table.

Just look at the cake offerings. It is just too pretty. Their cake frontage change 4 times a year and it is theme according to seasoned.

Taste By Champignons (11)

Getting a chance to try all the flavors and I am certainly too happy, as I am a cake lover.

pastry in kl

Some of you might find that the pricing is slightly high but then when you cut open, just look at the amount of time and work that he have done to the cake. Then it is justifiable. Each of the cake consist of at least 4 elements or 4 different flavours.

Taste By Champignons (8)

Their signature cake :  Elderflower @ RM 20 – Elderflower Whipping Ganache, Pink Guava Jelly, Guava compote, Sponge and Biscuit.

As for this cake, you can see that it stars from the base, then add on another 5 layer on top. With the top shell, its hand pipping, then follow by colour spray and finish with special sugar sprinkle. This cake takes 2 days to complete.

A nice balance of flavour where the confusion of elderflower gives us an impression like lychee, yet a hint sour bitter is the guava compote and a perfect cake to go with long black.

Taste By Champignons (5)

For this, just look at the chocolate tampering for  the Flamingo 2.0 @ RM 20 – Red Berries Whipped Ganache, Apple and Lime compote, Vanilla Sponge, Biscuit.

Taste By Champignons (6)

Taste By Champignons (7)

i find this very adventurous – Tropical Bar @ RM 19 – Exotic Mousse with Banana Confit, Lime Whipped Ganache and Banana Cake. a hint of banana cake flavour yet with the chocolate with hint of pandan is quite interesting – one of my personal fav.

Taste By Champignons (9)

i vote this Aloha as a generic or universal flavour. I believe this is easily accepted by many of you. @ RM 20 – Yogurt mousse, Pineapple Jam, Mandarin and Pear confit and Orange. Soft, airy, mid sour and fragrant end. I believe this will even goes well with white wine.

Taste By Champignons (14)

Coconut 2.0 @ RM 20 -Coconut Whipped Ganache, Pineapple and Mango Compote, Coconut Sponge, Coconut Gianduja And Chocolate Coating. The tempering and mix of this chocolate is quite technical. The coconut husk cant be too thick, where it cant be break. Oncey ou cut open, it is like a treasure in side.  anice balance of coconut that is not over powering yet can taste on the chocolate and pineapple.

WE end it with macaroons.

Taste By Champignons (17)

Oh no, we actually end with Home made sausage @ RM 19. This is pretty good. Love the slight grill on the skin and the flavour in it is petty good.

As for the cakes, my personal recommendation would be:

  1. Elderflower
  2. Aloha
  3. Tropical bar

It was before MCO I went to check out this cafe in ss15. The Toast House 多士號 at Subang SS15 was pretty hit before then. An white mosaic interior that gives  minimalist feel. Making them a  place which is pretty instagramable.

cafe in subang

Toast house x Kuala Lumpur is located the same stretch as the famous pork noodle or can say a few doors away.

Menu is rather direct . .

Since were here for a quick breakfast decided to try out the charcoal grill jumbo series with : Jumbo Bacon and Hashbrown sandwich with Cheese @ RM 15 – pork bacon, hasbrown, cheese, egg, cabbage, tomato slice


The sandwich itself is pretty big, is more like a double toast x 3, so it is more like a sandwich stack for me.

the toast house (5)

Crispy inside out and their own sauce is not bad.

the toast house (6)

since the word Special Royal Coffee (Hot) at RM 5 do attract me to try. Well, I guess kopitiam version is better. Not to my liking. you guys can give it a try.

Then try out Taiwanese Pancake , Bacon Pancake @ RM 8. It is not too bad on the flat bread, slightly chewy to my liking and I guess worth to give it a shot.

Its simple food for breakfast or you just want your sandwich.

Fuh, how many of you miss cafe hopping? During this CMCO many of us can order through GRAB Food. Since now more F&B operators are accepting dining in, here we go again in doing our part to support local businesses. Heard alot about this Australia inspired  cafe in Bangsar, Urban Daybreak. A new cafe operator from Penang that is penetrating KL Market. Some say is one of the best new cafe in Bangsar.

Some of you might recognize them as Jeremy Chick’s during MCO or CMCO. The chicken rice delivery in Bangsar.

best cafe in bangsar

To my surprise, there is actually a queue during this CMCO and I waited for 30 minutes for my table during lunch time at 2pm.

cafe in bangsar

their menu is pretty straight forward and pricing is the usual cafe standard.

coffee in bangsar

We ordered Cafe Latte @ RM 12 and Honey Latte @ RM 15. Coffee taste is to my liking as a well balance of coffee aroma and milk yet not too acidic. The Honey latte taste much better as there is after hint of sweetness.

best avocado mash

Asked about what is their top recommendation and apparently Avocado Smash @ RM 25 is their best seller. Something simple and direct for your brunch dosage, spread with homemade guacamole, feta cheese, wholegrain bread, roasted cherry tomato, cider and beetroot puree.

Urban Daybreak (8)

Porky Bolognese Sandwich @ RM 28 – spiced pork tomato stew, grilled onionz, mozzarella cheese, homemade hashbrown and sourdough. Italian spaghetti inspired turns to sandwich version. Quite interesting. Hashbrown is thick and crispy.

Urban Daybreak (7)

Stout Pulled Pork with Poached Eggs @ RM 28.50 – sourdough toast, poached eggs, bbq cider vinaigrette, feta cheese, crispy shallots . If your taste bud had awaken, this this would be a suitable dish. Stout pulled pork gives you a punch of flavor with a well balance of sourish taste. Runny egg yolk is just nice.

Urban Daybreak (10)

Urban Daybreak (13)

This is their hidden Steak sandwich @ RM 35 which is off from the menu. Do request from the waiter. Among all the sandwich, this is my liking among the all. A slight toast with butter fragrant on the top., with sourdough is soft in between and steak is done to perfection. Medium rare. – recommended

Urban Daybreak (11)

I am a sucker for this item. Will order whenever any brunch menu has it. Signature French Toast @ RM 24. Serve with brioche loaf, brulee banana, homemade salted peanut butter jam, mapple syrup and crispy bacon. What I find it interesting is the pairing of salted peanut butter, banana and broice bread together. A taste of salty, sweet, creamy. Kinda interesting. Best to order 1 portion and share among friends.

Urban Daybreak (12)


Urban Daybreak (14)

I find that this cafe is worth to pay a visit and would I return back? Yes, it had been a while since I last discover a decent cafe that worth to revisit. Could this be one of the cafe in KL? Maybe you guys share with me. I would say easily top 3 in Bangsar.
