This is not a ghost house yet is indeed a miniature landmark for Tengkat Tong Shin (a street next to Jalan Alor). It was a wet day yesterday, while walking back to carpark to pick up my car, my colleague told me this little black kiosk is a new player in this neighborhood and it seems they sell pretty good patisseries. Then decided to check em out later in the afternoon. I must say, Le Petit Rococo is a new hidden gem in this busy street of TengKat Tong Sin that is run by this young chap from Tajkestan (another country that I just learnt yesterday), where only a month old.
This this little cafe only operate with 3 Ikea tables and 6 chairs. Do imagine the limitation of the seating area.
I am in love with their homemade Patisseries as was told is French style inspired cooking from their main kitchen down the road in a hotel.
Since it was a rainy day, I am in love with the cool breeze, sipping my coffee under this felt like heritage area (which is not), under this run down building and the moment is just perfect.
Ordered a large Scones @ RM 4.50 and Espresso to try on (the only drink he serve). Totally in love with the cutlery he used as there is a branding in it, with this pair of heavy gold fork and knife is indeed impressive! Scones is perfect to my linking where he use oven to head it up, where the outer layer is crispy on its crust yet soft inside. It is aromatic and with a little cut of butter to eat along and a sip of his espresso is PERFECTO!
Their coffee taste is quite different where for the first time I do not know how to describe as I am not really an espresso lover however this is quite acceptable for me. Since scones was good then decided to order another piece of his best seller which is Red Velvet (which I am not a big fan of it) since is his best seller and done in a loaf version, certainly it is unique.
One of the best Red Velvet that I have come across that it does make me confuse a bit, first it is being heated in an oven to make the outer layer crispy yet inside is so soft yet not too sweet, and enjoying every single bite of it.
Then the owner told me that this stall Le Petiti Rococo is actually to create awareness for the restaurant and he is pushing all his guest to his full scale restaurant, Rococo Cafe Restaurant that located down the road in Hotel Melange on the 7th floor. Certainly I am going to check them out!
Total Damage is RM 19
Friendly owner whom is from Tajikstan where I totally have not heard about this country and found out in Google.
facts from Google : Tajikistan is a Central Asian country bordering Afghanistan, China, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan. It’s known for its rugged mountains, which are popular for hiking and climbing. The Fann Mountains, near the national capital of Dushanbe, encompass snow-capped peaks that rise above 5,000 meters. Within the range is Iskanderkulsky Nature Refuge, a noted bird habitat whose namesake, Iskanderkul, is a turquoise lake formed by glaciers.
