First time being at Setia Walk and I must say, I am impress with the landscaping design that the developer had build. Its a very relaxing place that host many restaurant, & Bar, of course not to be miss TGV is hosted in here too. Great for residents in Puchong that need not travel far for movie. Not only that, as we were walking around and spotted 3 coffee joints around the area and decided to give Tipsy a try as saw my friends posting about this cafe weeks ago.

Coffee Luwak is something new to me yet I have heard it many many times from coffee lovers and friends. Its a love and hate relationship like durian according to them. It doesnt come cheap yet its good to try once.

Kopi Luwak – is known as the most luxurious coffee in the world. How me and my friend always describe on this is – poo from Musang, that is how it is price so expensive. Kopi Luwak is a name for many specific cultivars and blends of arabica, robusta, liberica or other beans eaten by civets.¬†The ‘Luwak’ or known in ¬†Malaysia as ”Musang”, eats the raw coffee berry and because it cannot digest the berry, proceeds to secrets the bean. It can easily cost up to USD500/500 grams, roughly RM 150 per 100grams.

lonbay (7)

Kopi Luwak is brewed in siphons using organically cultivated beans with certificate of authenticity and it can cater up to 2 person per session.

lonbay (8)

Tadaa. . .here is our version of coffee luwak. Light in body and slightly bitter after taste.

lonbay (9)

This is what attracts me, makes me feel they really do heavy research on their coffee line in Spiderman movie. My attention have all move to this little tubes.

lonbay (10)

Its Coffee Enzyme. Something new and first time hearing it too. . Lonbay Coffee Enzyme is extract from organic Liberica coffee bean. It helps the body to digest food and converting it into nutrients and assimilate nutrients from proteins, carbohydrates, fats and fibre. Top it all, Lonbay Coffee Enzyme supplementation in our diets as below:-
  • Improves overall digestion so we have more energy for life
  • Aids in disease prevention and boosts the immune system
  • Minimizes the negative effects of the cancer therapies
  • Reduces the effects of aging, wrinkles, sun spots, inflammation or soreness of muscles and joint pain
  • Prevention of heart disease and speed healing after surgery
  • Cleanses our system from allergic reactions
If you smells direct from the tube it gives a strong smell of vineger like and very sourish. We did try to have a little sip from it and it taste like a strong compact essence.

lonbay (11)

Honey Lemon with Coffee Enzyme is one of the way to pair it and it had turn into our favourite. Sourish end that pairs well with lemon and honey that gives a slight hint of sweetness. If you have not tried this before, its a great glass or drink to have before or after meal. Highly Recommended!

lonbay (12)

The LonBay Iced Drip is the one that settle at the counter with the huge siphon process that can be served in two ways, warm or chilled. Another type of coffee that is light in taste, not too strong and mild after taste.

About a year ago, Sunway Giza used to be quite a deserted area to be hang out with as I remembered for the very first time when I visited the place about a year ago, it was very dead where about 2-4 FnB outlets were operating in the area and now, the whole place is so happening. Coffee Chemistry Cafe

[updated – July 2014- no longer in operation]

That now house a lot of FnB and bars too besides simple grocery shopping, and now a lot people head to Sunway Giza for happy hour and friends meeting up. One of the place that I have been a lot of times that I just didn’t blog bout it till now, as all of you sure know a pub which is quite happening in the area Movida, which is one floor above them, hidden one very hidden gem, Coffee Chemistry,Cubic Plateforms that now known by many people for its good coffee, hang out place, for many friends and families

As when you opened the door, you will be a bit shock that HTC and Digi are in it too then smack this little cafe with them.

coffee chemistry (2)

Where alot people hang out here where I observed many of them are coffee lovers that just come by here to have a sip of coffee with friends and family while just enjoying their time.

coffee chemistry (3)

A mini kitchen that will blow your mind away with their very own recepi .. .

coffee chemistry (5)

I am not a big fan of coffee drinker as I always order something unique then this caught my attention with ‘Roasted Almond Cafe @ RM 9.50. I find that the almond taste is just there that the coffee is not too strong to overpower it instead it pair up very well, and I just love my cup of coffee.

NED_8152_resize

One of my usual in a cafe to start off with is Mocha @ RM 6.90, with very nice coffee art, and the chocolate  makes the cup of coffee blends well, that is now one of my favourite. .

NED_8151_resize

Flat White that covers with a very thin froth that is just nice to sip for a Sunday afternoon.

NED_8153_resize

Many places are not able to served Iced Mocha the way I like and when I come across this icy drink, it was above my expectation that the milk is light, able to preserved the taste of coffee and chocolate taste in it with the ice cubes do not dilute it after quite some time, which is pretty impressive.

coffee chemistry (6)

Then I asked the boss what is best to start off with and recommended Homecook Mushroom Soup @ RM 9.90, when this bowl of soup was served, while I was taking this picture, I just snap quickly and put down my gear to try it out, as the arome of the creamy milk just so nice, yet one of a unique taste of mushroom soup that I come accross, its not thick, yet mild creamy, filled with lots of fine chopped onion and mushroom, that makes me finish this whole bowl by myself. – Recommended~

coffee chemistry (11)

For greens or healhty eating, they offer Salmon Caesar Salad @ RM 15.90

NED_8162_resize

and Chicken Caesar I find it taste better in terms of the chicken breast is well marinated and soft that goes along with this light meal.

coffee chemistry (7)

One of the dish that did suprise us all when he told us one of his best seller is Bacon Fried Rice that looks pretty dull plain and while put into our mouth, it was burst with aroma, with¬†‘wok hei’ with such a small kitchen, and it is very generous in ingredients¬†that every mouth full is filled with bacon. Another dish to Go after!

coffee chemistry (8)

Those who felt that would want to eat something light, Salmon Wrap @ RM 8.90

NED_8156_resize

Another item that I quite like in their menu is Homemade Pizza (which I forgot this name of it), is very similiar to one of my favourite hawker pizza (Frankie’s Pizza) that made with home crust bread toast it then filled with lots of ingredient, cheeze just melted on top to make it a bit salty nice.

NED_8158_resize

Beef Herbs Speghatti in Spicy Cream Sauce, usual I go on extra spicy, then this round I decided to try the beef and in normal taste. Love the creamy base of it with fine chuncks of onion, that I would prefer it without the green papper taste of it.

coffee chemistry (9)

Al-Funghi Pasta @ RM 13.90

coffee chemistry (10)

Filled with lots of garlic slices, onion and mushroom.

I would say that this place surely do served very good coffee that can beat many outlets out there, as the coffee is not too strong that can suits many taste bud even not for coffee drinker like me and the after aroma of it is mild and stays in our palate for quite a while that I just like it. For strong coffee drinker, you might not like the mild taste of it, with the quality, I am sure you will enjoy a bit.

Another Puchong discovery as I felt that there are alot of food outlet in this area. One of the latest discovery is this shop LSY-Pot which their signature is on claypot. One of famous chinese eatery by using claypot to cook the rice and with some add on ingredient as I love my version with alot of chinese sausage and one chunk of salted fish.

Oriental Claypot Chicken Rice @ RM6.90 small, RM13.50 large

This is how I like my claypot chicken rice to be, aromatic of a bit chinese wine, chinese sausage and the most important is they use a very good quality of salted fish.

If you prefer your Claypot chicken rice to be seperated out, they can do it ‘Chicken served on a plate on top of white rice’. To me, this taste better than the mixture of everything inside the claypot, as it manage to seperate the taste out of it and the watery gravy on top of it perfect to go along with rice!

I have always been to and pass by Hartamas, neither did I know that actually on the other side, hidden another shopping mall which is Hartamas Shopping Complex which I find it kinda cool place to be for the very first time, whole stretch of shop rows that filled with F&B, some souvenir shops, and many others and if add on some exclusive brand there, it would be like street shopping at Melbourne.

The reason me being there was, Richard had extended an invitation to us to dine at Bagel n Coffee Station in that area.

I have no idea what Bagel is about until the boss explain to us that it is actually another type of bread that shape into ring(very similar like donut) boil in water then baked that will comes out with chewy, dense and crispy. There are a few types of it and the classic one are with poppy and sesame seeds. It is popular at Europe, US but not in Malaysia.

Bagel n Coffee

Bagel n Coffee (2)

A simple classic western café decoration and appearance that make it simple and nice which you can always see in the movie as I like this kind of designs.

Bagel n Coffee (3)

As we were seated and the friendly owner greeted us and explain to us how this shop been set up and the concept of it and got to know that this brand is origin from Germany as the owner travel quite often between Malaysia and Germany so then he took the franchise and open it here.

Bagel n Coffee (4)

Another classic menu that makes me recall back my working time in a cafe when I was in Melbourne.

Bagel n Coffee (5)

Offers variety of bagel in different dressing. If you guys are coffee lovers, please do not miss their coffee which is blend with imported beans and the way that they blend the aroma out of it, its truly get the taste of the finniest coffee, of course I mean is better than Starbucks and Coffee Bean in my own taste.

Bagel n Coffee (7)

‘Cafe Latte (R)RM8.70 With smooth foam yet brew to perfection with the froth at the right temperature and right blend had pour on top of it. Its something I could not resist.

Bagel n Coffee (8)

‘Voreo Cream Shake’ RM12.50 is what I would assume like Oreo Shake. Was first to serve this and I finish it within minutes. Just cant stop slurping it. Nice taste yet not too sweet the smoothness of the ice is just perfect.

Bagel n Coffee (9)

For those who love coffee extra strong that I would recon ‘Double Espresso’. Brew from Original double shot with hot water compress and pressure thru it, comes the nice creation of aroma in it. RM5.80

Bagel n Coffee (10)

‘Iced Barraquito’ is something new to us. Its like a shot of espresso added on with condense milk at the base and top with creamy foam added with 1 or 2 cubes of ice, had bring the coffee aroma to another level. Something which Ken loves and enjoy alot. RM6

Bagel n Coffee (11)

I was too caffeinated till I forgot to shot another drink which is ‘Ciokaffe’ which is behind this glass of coffee. More like a long black but surely long black with great smooth taste. RM7.90

Bagel n Coffee (12)

Then next head on with our order of Bagel. That the bagel is slice into half and as the based support, cabbage, lettuce, onions, green pepper then top with the selection of your chioce and cover the top with another half of the bagel.

Bagel n Coffee (16)

Bagel n Coffee (13)

Which first serving is ‘Chicken Bagel’ by the look of it, me and Ken look down upon this bagel that wonder how would it filled our stomach but bagel had proof our assumption wrong! A whole slice of bagel is enough to make us full. RM11.50

Chewy texture yet with the special seed top as into baked had make the bagel unique in taste and with the ingrediant, sauces and salad added in. Its perfect!

Bagel n Coffee (14)

Then we head to our ‘Roast Beef Bagel’. Beef was roasted perfectly yet preserving the softness of the beef that did not overcook yet the aroma of the beef slices had combines well with the bagel and dressing. RM14.60

Bagel n Coffee (15)

Next the owner introduce us to try out ‘Sesame Bagel’ and tag with ‘Classic New York Lox’. Among the list so far, this would be the far best and personally highly recommended. The freshness of salmon that had a cream cheese spread on the bread added on with some dressing that combine is truely delightful. RM14.60

Bagel n Coffee (17)

We order another one that caught our attention which is ‘Quater Pounder Cheese with plain Bagel’ . The name and the look of it had made us impress and the taste of it, its delicious too. Medium well beef with salad with a slice of cheese is just more high class of Ramlee burger version. RM11.50

Bagel n Coffee (18)

Being the place orignate from Germany we would not miss the opportunity to try out their ‘Beef Krakauer, Chicken Garlic, Chicken Jalapeno’. Chewy and juicy texture that bath with their home made sauce had just end our meal with satisfaction and the boss gives us more coffee. RM7.90 each.

Bagel with coffee is truely great combination. Surely we will return to the shop for anothe round. Thanks to the owner for giving us a warm hospitality n Richard too.
