Life is too short for bad coffee…

Coffea Coffee, Bangsar

Coffea Coffee has got to be the latest place for coffee hipsters to hang out at. The place is usually packed after 8. If you’re not a fan of the buzz and noises, you’d be better off hitting this spot before the night crowd kicks in.

They serve only two types of coffee; Maestro or Madonna. Maestro is the American blend, which is a darker blend. My favourite has got to be Madonna, simply because it reminds me of Australian coffee; always packed with an acidic punch to it.

They also have my favourite chai latte. It’s not everyone’s cup of tea, but its definitely mine. It’s hard to find places that serve up decent chai latte. Most of the time they are really diluted, or the chai powder’s balance of spice is just wrong.

If you feel like having something non caffeinated, try out their Peanut Butter Latte. It’s one of their signature drinks. Subtle and light hints of caramel-ish peanut butter. If the weather’s too hot to bear, have a Berry Nana Smoothie!

*To provide you with a rough idea of where this place is, it’s on the same row as La Bodega, Yeast and Antipodean.

The first thought of my every weekend mornings is this, where should we have brunch?

and Yeast would always lie at the back of my mind. It has become a place that I visit almost every weekend.

Sometimes when I feel like something light in the morning, I’d just grab an almond croissant with OJ or their sinful Valrhona hot chocolate. Other days when I feel like an absolute glutton, I’d go all out to indulge in these heavyweight items.

Calamansi Tart

My favourite dessert in KL, their calamansi tart. I love sour desserts, and this has got to be the best sour one I’ve ever had!

On non brunch related events, I was glad that I took Roseanne, Jacob and Yi Shen here for dinner. It was my first time having dinner here and thankfully it was the right place for our mini Melbourne reunion.

Chicken Roulade, yeast

You could check out this page on their Facebook for a general idea of how this place looks.

So here you go, one of my favourite places in Bangsar. Make sure you grab some takeaway almond croissants for your loved ones!

Dad introduced me to this when we were at Honeymoon Dessert. It’s called Shuang Pi Nai (双皮奶) in Mandarin, which literally translates to Double-Skin Milk. According to dad, it’s a staple dessert in our ancestor’s home in Shun De, a district in Guangdong.

It’s almost akin to eating tau fu fah that has a smooth and custard-like texture.

Who knew that you could make such a delicious dessert plainly with milk, egg white, sugar and of course some nut toppings to give it a crunch.

I’m finally in Shanghai!

It’s been 3 years since I’ve last set foot here. Well, it doesn’t look like it has changed much. Atleast everything still looks familiar!

I’ve basically spent the whole day yesterday sitting on my bum. Flight was delayed while we were all seated inside. Managed to reach Shanghai after 6 hours on the plane (it was torturous) and then another hour in the car. My butt hurts from sitting too much. Soooo can you tell how fun it was spending a whole day travelling instead of eating?

Thank god dad salvaged my day by bringing me to Tori Yasu for some yakitori.

Felt like Alice in Wonderland as I was entering the door. It was really tiny and short. You gotta watch out for your head!

Very good yakitori chef on duty

Dad ordered this sourish drink for me, claims that it’s like a yogurt mix. Pretty refreshing.

Got my hands on these grilled chicken skin. They were to die for! Absolutely delicious. I could have 10 of these and not get sick of them. Someone’s arteries were cringing when I told him I was having these.

This is my first time having chicken heart. It tastes a little bloody and has a very slight chewiness to it. I loved it! I shall be the innards queen of oinks, moos and cuckoos.

Gotta have shishamos… I love these pregnant fishies.

Grilled rice

Ribs! It was juicy and succulent but a little too salty! Dad says it’s usually perfect, they were a little heavy handed on salt today.

Ramen with pork bone broth. Springy ramen with flavourful broth that has just the right amount of oil to allow us to chuck down the soup!

The bill came up to about RMB250 for the both of us. I thought that it was pretty alright for the amount of food that we had.

How come we don’t get good stufflike this in KL ;(
