best cake in kl

They have a few flavours which is local inspired and to my surprise, my personal favourite is both their local inspired flavours.

kuke cakes

Puteri Jendol @ RM 17 indeed taste like cendol which is also one of their best seller. A cake that is soft and fluffy on both top and bottom yet a slightly dence creamy that holds the cendol on the middle. As your fork punch thru the cake, the fragrant of the cake comes out together. Top is pandan and bottom base with gula melaka base. Best it is not too sweet .

black glutinous rice

My next recommended flavour is also their one of their best seller which is also local inspired. The most interesting is this Hitam Manis @ RM 17 which is from our Chinese thong sui. “Hak Loh Mai” . It do resembles near to the dessert. Surprisingly good. IT sounds weird and looks weird at first but trust me. A bite of this will get you addicted to continue. (that is for me). As I finish both slices of Puteri Jendol and Hitam Manis myself.

Burnt Cheese Cake I find it better than many available out there also. Of course there are alot of versions on how they make and depends on what you like. I like slightly burnt outside with top and bottom is slightly hard and middle is moist. This is how they make it. The Saint @ RM 17

Honolulu @ RM 17

hartamas

Last 2, is 5 shades of chocolate @ RM 17 as some of my friends ordered this and they love it. It is really 5 layers of different chocolate with 1 layer a mix chocolate in it. It is rich yet not too dense but just nice. You have both hint creamy and bitterness from the choclate. Layered well in flavours.

Triple C @ RM 17 is like I called the unique version of carrot cake. That’s how I interpret it. a hit of cinnamon and a nice mix of bites in it.

I guess MCO had created many home talent out there. With some with drawings, baking and may others. I was shared by a friend that I must try out his best friend cakes. It is really good. Then I said lets do it. A home baker from Cheras, KL operating as @homekitchenbyng in instagram and I must say she does create one of the best Home bake Onde Onde Cake, which is actually her signature.

homekitchen_byng

One thing to note on as she is using premium ingredients and best of all. It is order to bake to ensure you get to enjoy the freshness of the cake. Order afternoon, bake in the morning.

These are the 4 signature cakes from her and my flavour ranking from top to bottom:

  1. 🥥 Onde-Onde Cake 6′ @ RM 68 (this is the best) – (highly recommended)
  2. 🌹 🧀 Rose Lychee jelly Cheesecake 4′ / 6′ @ RM 68/RM 88.
  3. 🥃🧀 Bailey Coffee Liquor Crumbles Cheesecake 4’/ 6’ @ RM78/ RM98
    Some of you that like some booze, then this would be my another recommendations.
  4. 🍵🧀Matcha Crumbles Cheesecake 4’/6’ @ RM68 / RM88
  5.  🥭🍚 Mango Sticky Rice @ RM 12.90 (limited time only)🚗🛵 💯 FREE Delivery for RM 100 and above / Watsapp to order at: 0183999819

🥥 Onde-Onde Cake 6′ @ RM 68 (this is the best) – soft pandan sponge cake that got stack with well balance gula-malaka coconut filling sawdwich in the middle. Filled with generous amounts of coconuts that had nearly a snow effect. . It is fresh and addictive.  (highly recommended)

lychee cheesecake

Next I find that her 🌹 🧀 Rose Lychee jelly Cheesecake 4′ / 6′ @ RM 68/RM 88.

lychee jelly cheesecake

Well balance flavour of cheese and lychee that blends together. Cheese is soft, not too creamy and heavy yet one bite you get to enjoy all flavours.

lychee

bailey cheesecake

If you like something boozy then you can give it a try for their 🥃🧀 Bailey Coffee Liquor Crumbles Cheesecake 4’/ 6’ @ RM78/ RM98

Bailey Coffee Liquor Cheesecake

cheese is slightly abit solid as I believe could be the alcohol ratio but then the coffee and bailey taste is quite prominent. If you goes with a cup of ice cold long black, it is just perfect!

green tea cheesecake

🍵🧀 Matcha Crumbles Cheesecake 4’/6’ @ RM68 / RM88

matcha cheese cake

Matcha lower you might want to give this an option. Solid crust base, crispy crumbles form the top and a good mixture of soft and hard for every bite. Matcha taste is there and cheese is the aftertaste.

It is quite a limited creation per day as these few are easily sell out.  As these 3 comes in a huge distinctive combination of flavours.

My Melody 2.0:🐰🌸 @ RM 20
Fondly named after My Melody herself, this ultra-cute🥺 petite gâteau is a Licklalicious🤤 combination of high-grade Oolong ice cream, raspberry sorbet🍧, passionfruit curd🍮 & white chocolate🍫

For refreshing piece, I find that the guie layer is sourish with passionfruit curd in side and white chocolate is a great combinnation.

Land of Stars:☁️✨ @ RM 28

Paying homage to the birthplace of Little Twin Stars💖💚, this is too pretty & picture-perfect to devour! Fill with components like strawberry🍓 compote, cream cheese🥯 ice cream, blueberry basil🌿 sorbet, pecan crumble🍪 & white chocolate🍫

This definitely have its own unique flavour profile. A bit of savoury + sweet as some of you might find it confusing but I find a clever combination. Hint of saltiness from cream cheese with blueberry basil sorbet is unique but top with nice bit of pecan crumble is great!

Guiding Star @ RM 20

Given to Lala💖 by her father, her guiding star wand guides the Little Twin Stars on their journey & when waved in a circle, snacks🍦will appear. Here, it comes in the form of refreshing coconut🧉ice cream, coconut🌴 sorbet, caramelized pineapple🍍assam sorbet, pineapple tropical compote, almond crumble🍪, & white chocolate🍫

If you are hitting more for beach tropical note, then Guiding star it is. Coconut tate is quite prominent with hint of pineapple, one thing I like about this is the unique flavour of asam sorbet brings it to next level.

Okay lai lai. This round before I share my full itinerary of Jalan Jalan cari Makan at Batu Pahat that took place last year August 2020. I am going to kick start with this famous hidden cafe known as Niqiu Space in Batu Pahat, Johor. Upon stepping into this cafe, I instantly fell in love deep deep with the whole concept.

A cafe that is run by a young group of people with true passion to put Batu Pahat into a well known town again. As Batu Pahat now is an aging town with many youngsters jet to Johor city or Klang valley to persue their career. Then left this group of young people hoping to bring up the community. I am totally impress by their passion and direction.

Oh well, some of the owners are famous wedding photographer in Batu Pahat. Hence with a few of their strong passion to build up this Niqiu Space Cafe.

A transportation of yourself back into the 60’s 70’s era. I have always love shop which is back dated like during my grandparents time. Huge square box tv, metal filing cabinate, huge ass wooden counter top and many more. When I was brief by my friend about the uniqueness of this concept cafe, I am totally blown away!!!!!  (there are T&C to follow) : for me I got discount cuz my friend know the cafe owner and they were just operating about a month old. SO i get to roam freely.

Niqiu Space (25)

Before entering this cafe: there is a signage that written Do and donts! (as the owner want all of us to respect their space, customer space and enjoy the ambiance)

  1. Do’s
    1. do come in, order your drinks
    2. Sit chill and enjoy the ambiance
  2. Dont’s
    1. Do not move around to take picture everywhere
      1. you are only allow to take picture at your seating area
    2. you are not allow to talk loud (talk like you are in library)
    3. Kids are not welcome (because the whole shop sells antique) anything broken is not cheap !
    4. Space is very limited or compact, hence group movement might not encourage.

Blown away right? but the owner highly want all the customers to comply. I am okay with that. Every establishment have their own uniqueness.

Niqiu Space (31)

Below are more pictures for you to see and enjoy. If you are in this cafe, PLEASE DO NOT take picture like me. I do have special permission to move around like this! Respect the owner’s rules and regulation!!!

Anything you see in the cafe, do ask the owner for pricing. 90% are for sale. I am sure they are like the largest antique collection in Batu Pahat.

Currently there is this big crazy hype on the biggest Starbucks Reserve coffee in Kl. Sorry I mean Starbucks Coffee PJ, that is currently operating in Tropicana Gardens Mall. A new mall in Kota Damansara.

best single origin coffee

Since they are the biggest Starbucks reserve, of course must order Starbucks Reserve coffee to see what’s the difference.

You can sit at the bench to take nice picture. A  nice contract of white marble with a bit of aqua pale green as a back wall. then sit and watch all the coffee process that they are making for other customers. For me it was super full house hence I only manage to find a side table. Enjoy from far lo.

They have 2 different counter. Starbucks Reserve counter or the normal drinks counter.

My coffee in the making. with nice aroma. We were recommended in 2 different single origin beans. Panama best to have it in hot and Costa Rica best to have it ice.

I love both equally lots as it gives both different after taste aroma. Single origin Panama gives you a bit dark chocolaty end. Single Origin Coasta Rica is mild and subtle.
