One of the most famous pastry shop in Bangsar is this Jaslyn Cakes that now had expended their outlet to Mont Kiara. Located just right opposite Kiara 163 or next to Baskin Robin.

Jaslyn Cakes (1)

Was told by my friends that the place serve pretty good cakes and I am not too sure as this is my first time here.

Heading here for tea for my colleague farewell. Love the Aussie style kind of concept cafe with natural lighting roof and will be very warm if you are seated outside. Inside only 2 small table.

Instantly I fall inlove with the offerings here as I am a pastry lover.

Jaslyn Cakes (6)

Even Bread section too.

Jaslyn Cakes (7)

Jaslyn Cakes (8)

Hoola, this is our gathering for farewell.

Jaslyn Cakes (9)

Coffee here is pretty decent too as it is not too strong in taste and suits to my liking. Not too aciditiy.

Jaslyn Cakes (10)

Jaslyn Cakes (13)

Overall, the cakes here are pretty good as it is moist, not too strong and dense. All the flavours we order has their own taste. Feels like it is freshly made for the day as my colleague went inside and wanted to make a take away, was told it is sold out.

Jaslyn Cakes (14)

I will definately be back again for a piece of cakes and coffee for my cuppa. Price range of cakes is from RM 8 – RM 20 per piece. Well, definately one of a cafe in KL that I would recommend.

One of the latest hype brunch place is this Rise & Shine by Tapestry located in Chow Kit, KL that sits right opposite of Hotel Stripes KL. A place currently well known for its insta worthy brunch place in KL. A place is indeed crazy for long queue over the weekend. If you are here inbetween 9.30am – 3pm, do prepare to queue for at least 60-90 minutes.

When it comes to food, there are hits and misses as alot people say it is over hyped and not worth it. I have different views as there are some items worth to order and some are not.

Tapestry (11)

Alot people are here for one of their well known signature dish – Rise & Shine Egg Drop @ RM 22 . Indeed I would rate this as a must order item. Filled with fluffy soft-scrambled free-range kampong eggs with cheddar, caramelised onions, sriracha aioli on a hot cross bun. We ordered both to try out and thinks that the normal one is suffieicient to hit a satisfaction spot. The Sarsi-glazed beef at Rm 8 does not do much impact on the taste.. – recommended

Tapestry (14)

Tapestry (10)

LINGUINE with battered edamame, seasonal vegetables, tomato stew, served with freshly grated Grana Padano choose to add lamb meatballs. For a simple dish as dish, they have done it well.

Tapestry (12)

As first we were skeptical on this dish as we already ordered most of the item. However most of us are still not full from the first round order and decided to make this FRIED CHICKEN as add on. Lightly-battered fried chicken brushed with honey sriracha glaze and served with a side of fries and fennel salad. turns out to be better than we expected. The glaze is good, fill with mild sweet, souries and bitter taste that suits on the sauce and also fried to perfection. – recommended

Tapestry (13)

Tapestry (15)

A typical breakfast for RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT, on bubble and squeak, poached eggs and bunga kantan hollandaise. you also can choose one of the 3 options below:
1. Beetroot-cured salmon
2. Sarsi-glazed beef bacon
3. Halloumi (v) @ RM 28

Tapestry (16)

The rest of the dish below are all sub par or so so  such as:

MEATBALL SUB Lamb meatballs drenched in tomato stew finished with Grana Padano shavings on a sub roll served with onion rings @ RM 28

Tapestry (18)

FRENCH TOAST, with fresh berries, mixed berries compote, Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or ice cream. A dish which is not too bad which I think at this price they could have do much better.

Tapestry (17)

Tapestry (20)

PANCAKES, with mixed berries compote, fresh berries, edible chocolate soil and Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or Halloumi (v) @ RM 25. Pancake is dense and hard. not the fluffy type. Give this a pass if you can.

Tapestry (19)

Tapestry (21)

Love their coffee as we ordered total of 8 different glass as it was a big group of 10 of us for birthday celebration. flavourful Long Black @ RM 10 & Latte @ RM 13. Coffee is pretty good and we all agree to it

Tapestry (22)

Tapestry (23)

Cakes were alright as there were 4 options on that day.

Tapestry (24)

If you are looking for some nice brunch place to try in KL or a nice cafe to chill after 3pm, I overall think this is not too bad. But if to wait for 60-90 minutes for a table I would say it is kinda waste of time.

3 item if you are not sure what to order and I think it is worth to try for first timer are:

  1. Rise & Shine Egg Drop
  2. RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT
  3. FRIED CHICKEN or Linguine

The rest will be depending on your personal taste bud and they might improve along the way.

Recently I read about this place The Farm FoodCraft that serve fresh produce from their farm to table that located at  The Sphere, Bangsar South.

The Farm FoodCraft (1)

a place that is currently quite well known among my friends for healthy eating and was recommended to pay a visit to this place to check them out. Love the vibe of this place, high ceiling, nice glass walls that give you lots of natural lighting that makes it perfect for picture taking.

The Farm FoodCraft (2)

The Farm FoodCraft (3)

Indeed going to be a nice place for a brunch and catching up with your friends.

The Farm FoodCraft (4)

The Farm FoodCraft (5)

Food and drinks menu are pretty direct as it is only a front and back.

The Farm FoodCraft (6)

My friend try out their Mushroom Pan Mee @ RM 27. Pan Mee tossed in creamy mushroom sauce and dash of truffle oil. Never knew pan mee can be uplifted to a new modern dining. Clever cooking. Not too creamy and light enough for a quick lunch.

The Farm FoodCraft (7)

Read a few comments mention that their Curry Beef Lasagne @ RM 25 is recommended. Decided to give it a try. A combination of beef, potato and onions with garden salad on the side.

Indeed this is pretty good as I finish the whole piece by myself. Layer of Paper thin  dough to stack it up. Cook to perfection as the layers is soft, nice mince beef and cheese is just right. -Recommended

Would advise some of you to share this portion as it could be too much for you, unless you are like sort of a cheese lover.

The Farm FoodCraft (11)

Asam Boy Smoothie @ RM 18 – Young Mango, Asam Boi, with housemade pickled papaya and mango. Indeed a perfect drink for our hot weather for a thirst quencher. (just a bit on the steep side)

The Farm FoodCraft (12)

can give it a try as I have friends told me good and bad. Well, If you are in for the ambiance and some healthy eating, then this could be one of your options.

One of the latest cafe in KL is this Kanteen’s Coffee Bar at Mont Kiara. A cafe that replacing the lot that used to be Wendy’s Mont Kiara. However after I google about this place, it seems that they might have another branch call Kanteen at Plaza Damas too. Not too sure is it related.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (2)

A cafe that is nicely design with its cozy interior. With the coffee counter that looks like the 70’s design that catch most of everyone’s attention.

Planned to hit here for brunch and after read most of the reviews, we decided to leave it and only try coffee and cakes.

Pistachio Butter Cake @ RM 17. Buffer cake spongue is soft and airy. First few bites with the pistachio cream n nuts are nice. After a few more bites find the cream oily (could be too much butter or wrong mixture of the ingredients)

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (12)

Cinnamon Doughnut @ RM 3.50 – dough is too dense.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (13)

Cafe Latte @ RM 10 – not too bad if you want to get your quick fix of coffee.

Kanteen's Coffee Bar (14)

They have just operate less than 2 months if I am not mistaken. Food wise maybe will come back to try it out few months later.

Indeed will be a great place to chill out for a cuppa with friends. For Coffee, I would prefer this place which is just down the road.

What’s On Tap which is currently one of my favourite coffee place.

I guess some of you might have seen in Instagram that many people taking nice pictures in this matcha cafe. It is actually a hidden gem in Bangsar where Niko Neko Matcha is operating at Level 1 right opposite McDonalds those housing area.

Niko Neko (2)

If you are a green tea or matcha lover, then this would be one of the place that I will be highly recommended as they
specializes in pure Single Origin Specialty Matcha Green Tea. Quality wise will be top notch and you will love it.

Niko Neko (3)

they also showcasing variety of products ranging from green tea powder to beauty products.

Niko Neko (4)

Niko Neko (5)

Price for a cup of classic green tea is at very affordable price which starts from RM6.

Niko Neko (6)

Tried Yuri Matcha which is medium profile @ RM 6 and I am a big fan for roasted profile and tried Tsubaki/Houjicha @ RM 6

Niko Neko (7)

Both are equally good to my liking.

Niko Neko (8)

Seating capacity here will be a big challenge for many of you as there are only 3-4 seating area and per table is cater to about 2-3 pax. So yah, good luck.

As you reach on the 1st floor, you will see this little cute logo on the door and on the right side, ring the door bell with the cat logo on it too.

Niko Neko (11)

This brand actually operate by one of my friend and it is more to showcase their products and they have gaining huge popularity since then. If you are around the area, do pop by make a take away of green tea drink.

Recently, a few of my followers send me msg in Insta to check this place out. After I google about this place, it turns out to be a famous Hainanese Kopitiam that had been operating for more than 60 years at Lorong Pangung. Ho Kow Hainanese Kopitiam at Petaling Street had just moved to their new location that is currently creating more modern classic touch of their interior. Drawing massive crowds from both local and international tourist.

It is a crazy hype at the  moment and do prepare to queue for a minimum 30 minutes. At their peak could be 60-90 minutes. Was told that the queue even started as early as before 7AM on weekend where all are ready to dig into their famous Hainanese Cham drink with soft boiled egg, kaya butter toast.

Love their interior. A classic touch

Ho Kow (6)

Their signature drink is Cham Peng @ RM 3.50 (L) is indeed a drink that you must not miss. Punch with flavour and a well balance of tea and coffee. For their Teh Ice at RM 3.50(L) is just normal. I would prefer to order 2 glass of cham instead.

Ho Kow (7)

seen alot table ordering this, hence we follow suit.

Ho Kow (8)

Their nasi lemak picture in the menu looks good, hence we decided to give it  a try. Turns out to be as good as it looks. Chicken fried to perfection, crispy skin and chicken meat is soft. Their Sambal is is salty, mild spice and with a a little hint of sweetness.

Ho Kow (9)

Nothing much to shout out abit this as a croissant comes with meat floss, egg, ham.

Ho Kow (10)

Curry Chee choong fun is abit of Ipoh style.

Ho Kow (11)

Their dry curry chicken noodle is one of the famous item too. Do give it a try. Mild flavor curries served with soft chicken meat and their noodle texture is pretty good. Not the usual type of noodle that you can find in kopitiam.

Ho Kow (12)

Ho Kow (13)

End with this classic Kaya Butter toast. A simple toast that you should not miss with a glass of Cham and half boil egg.
