Jingle bell, jingle bell as month of December is the happiest festive season of the year. Christmas is just around the corner. I could not help but Taste by Champignon in Ekocheras had come out with their winter series edition. This is so cute especially with rain deer and ginger breadman. Snowman is edible too but on special request.

This winter season all are pretty good. A nice balance of flavour, with layers of flavour. Each of the dessert is master crafted. Look at the thin layer of top follow by multiple layer of ingredients in it. Some of the pastry even take 2-3 days to complete.

While waiting for next appointment and not sure where to go, he randomly try out Nanyang Cafe in Eko Cheras Mall. While I was writing this, only know that they are actually quite famous among this neighbourhood for a Hong Kong Cafe in KL after Kim Garry.

Eko Cheras

Simple modern interior that reflects much more on the Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng.

Polo Pau

What attracted me to try this outlet is because of their Hong Kong Polo Bun that make fresh in the kitchen, that looks pretty decent.

Nanyang Cafe (4)

Menu is quite direct with noodles, cheese rice, toast where it should be. Pork Burger with their french style bun.

Nanyang Cafe (5)

I must say that their drinks are very impressive. All their drink series are very solid or strong in taste. Those with weaker heart might not stand their Coffee. Smooth and strong in taste.

I tried 3:

  1. Hong Kong Coffee
  2. Hong Kong Milk Tea
  3. HOng Kong Yin Yeong

I personally like their coffee if were for breakfast. then their milk tea taste better too.

Nanyang Cafe (6)

wan tan noodle is alright. Noodle is springy and the wanton sui know is pretty decent in size. A prawn sui know.

Nanyang Cafe (7)

Polo bun

This is the main star that caught me into the outlet. Hong Kong Polo Bao with New Zealand Butter @ RM 4.80. It is not too bad for a bun. Fresh soft bun, flaky crusty top and with a slice of butter and a glass of coffee its a great combination.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gelato 2.0RM 19 Chocolate Truffle Mousse, Kalamansi Curd, Milk Chocolate Kalamansi Ganache, Brownies and Chocolate Coating

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.

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
