Flingstones Cafe (SS15, Subang Jaya)

F(1)

Looking set to differentiate themselves in the cafe scene in Subang with their artsy details (read: pretty tiles and interior) is new entrant Flingstones Cafe.

F(5)

Located strategically in front of Taylor’s College, it will not be long before it becomes a regular hangout for students in that area. Again it may be a double-edged sword, everyone knows about the infamous jam in that overly congested area. Weekends may be a good idea for cafe-hoppers.

Coming back to the interior, the pretty abstract tiles will be a sure Instagram worthy hit.

F(2)

Details that would perk your interest.

F(3)

Solitude time with art is readily available with their high tables.

F(4)

At the moment, only drinks (coffee and non-coffee) and cakes (ie: gula melaka cake) are available. A pretty decent cup of latte goes at (RM 10).

Lebanhmi (Restoran Hock Hin, Subang Jaya)

I might have a slight obsession with Banh Mi (Vietnamese sandwiches) after sinking my teeth in my first one from Obanhmi (Damansara Uptown). It might be a mini quest of mine to continuously hunt for one, even better if it was priced cheaper.

HH1(1)

Unexpectedly discovered one today in a neighbouring coffee shop. In an area that I have spent my elementary school years in, I was obviously over the moon today with our discovery.

Similar to the one offered in Obanhmi, the baguette was chewy with a nice hint of crustiness. As we always love our food with a nice kick of spiciness, we requested for chilis to be added in – definitely a great punch to the overall offering paired with grilled pork.

HH1(2)

Reasonably priced at RM 6 each, I am already looking forward to my next visit. Paired it with a cup of local coffee, a great meal at less than RM10. How can I not love our Malaysian coffee shops? 🙂

Souka Bake Shop (ss15, Subang Jaya)

S(3)

A nice new entry into the Ss15 cafe scene in Subang would be Souka Bake Shop. A spin-off from a bake shop in TTDI (beside & connected with Mukha Cafe), specializing in desserts (cakes, scones, pies,  you name it). Definitely a place to satisfy your sweet tooth!

S(5)

Lovely use of interior – with the play of brown and white ; this space definitely took center stage. Clever use of windows (and white) really brightened up the space, much thanks to the abundance of sunlight coming in.

But really the main attention – and only attention should be the desserts.

S(6)

There is more behind the counter space, such a feast to the eye. But really, it was a difficult moment for me. Too many choices, but where do I start?

S(7)

This is what we ended up with – along with a Latte (RM10) & Long Black (RM7)

S(4)

So I’ve decided not to fall into my peanut butter trap today (yes I am still into it, and it is still my mission to try all the peanut butter cakes that I have cross path with). So here is the Coffee Cake (RM10) that I fell in love with, today, a nice spin to an old-fashioned butter cake with coffee frosting.

S(2)

So here’s a look at their Chocolate Mint Cupcake – I hope it is making you drool 😉

Now, I’m already thinking of my next visit. Can’t wait to try the rest of the sweets out! 🙂

Kaffeinette Cafe (SS15, Subang Jaya)

Taking advantage of the lighter traffic in ss15 on a public holiday (if only this was an everyday scene), our food trail took us to one of the latest cafe invasion in ss15. If Nasi Lemak hits a soft spot, and Village Park in Damansara Uptown seems like a hassle to wait; this place would be a good option to explore.

Kaf(1)

Definitely loving the pop of colours that comes with the interior.

Kaf(2)

Bread takes center stage with this interesting piece of display, and I just can’t get my eyes off it.

Kaf(4)

The star – Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM 9.50). Fragrant rice cooked in coconut milk with Ayam Berempah (Malay spiced Fried Chicken), delectably crunchy. Hands down a real satisfying meal.

Kaf(5)

Fusing local and western cuisine, bagels are on the menu as well (yay for bagel lovers!). This came in the form of chicken ham topped off with cheddar cheese and scrambled eggs (RM 12).

Kaf(3)

Flat White goes at RM10. Personal preference would prefer one of higher acidity 🙂

But all in all, if you’re looking for a quiet place to chill over a plate of Malaysian goodness, this is it. There you go! Another place to check out or tick off when you’re in the area 🙂

p/s: Cakes are available too!

Haikara Style Cafe (ss16, Subang Jaya)

 

Haikara (5)

Even as a true blue Subang kid, heading to SS15 now is driving me crazy. You just can’t deny how overpopulated and congested it is right now, pretty similar to how Bangsar is.

I really needed a place today – away from the crowd and cars and just well, chill and have some much needed time with the mum. My perfect alternative today was at this cosy place – Haikara Style Cafe which is located at the groundfloor of E-Tiara Apartment, owned by a Japanese couple from Nagoya.

Haikara Cafe is a Japanese infused Western bakery & cafe offering comfort food ranging from Pasta to “Donburi” (Japanese Rice Bowl Dish). My mission today was to try out their famous Sumiyaki coffee – a Japanese charcoal roast prepared in a Japanese Siphon style coffee maker.

 Haikara (4)

“Iced Sumiyaki Coffee” (RM 8.90) is served black, milk and sugar is prepared on the side. Bold in taste with a smooth finish.

Haikara (3)

“Iced Cream Cuppucino” (RM 10.90) is also served with Sumiyaki Coffee topped off with cream.

Haikara (1)

For desserts, we had Chocolate Cake (RM 7.90) with mousse in the middle. Might be on a tad sweet end, but still enjoyable.

Haikara (2)

The Cheese cake (RM 7.90) might come in a smaller portion than usual, but definitely not lacking in flavour and texture. If you’re looking for a cheesecake with a rich texture, this would be the one.

Address: E – Tiara Apartment (Ground Floor), Jalan Kemajuan ss16/1, Subang Jaya

Hop Hop Cafe (SS18, Subang Jaya)

hh(1)

So here’s a cafe that took differentiation to a whole new level, with fluffy friends (rabbits) being their main attraction.

hh(6)

This pet-friendly space is split into 3 areas. The main would be their glass sealed petting zone, the cafe area as well as another smaller enclosed area where you’re most welcome to bring your pets and mingle along with other pet lovers.

Coming to the food. We had their Carbonara with Chicken Ham (RM 13.50).

hh(4)

Probably it would be good if it was a little more flavourful. Just a heads up, the portion served might not satisfy an individual with a hearty appetite.

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti (RM 14.50).

hh(5)

This offering was a tad better than the previous one, we enjoyed this better.

Coffee & cakes were on the menu as well. We decided to give their Tiramisu (Alcoholic) Cake (RM13) a go.

hh(3)

It was alright, just don’t expect a la Alexis Tiramisu cake 🙂

On the hand, service was prompt; really warm and friendly people. So if you’re a pet lover, this place would be worth a fluffy visit 😉

Absolute Coffee Stop Cafe (SS15, Subang Jaya)

ACS(1)

Something new is brewing in ss15! Absolute Coffee Stop Cafe is the latest coffee space to open its door here in Subang (just right beside Coffea Coffee), here’s another to add-on to your coffeehunt list! After 3 months of renovation, the place is finally open today. Looking at the crowd that has been trickling in during my short stint there, guess the neighbourhood is excited about its opening as well.

ACS(4)

If you’re wondering why the coffee here is similar to your cuppa from Artisan Roast – Head Barista of Absolute Coffee hails from Artisan Roast Coffee (TTDI Branch).

ACS (9)

Had to try out their Flat White (RM10.50), 5 senses coffee beans is used here.

ACS (6)

Cappuccino (RM10.50) was on the house (thank  you!)

ACS (5)  

Chicago Cheese Cake (RM13) has a lovely lemon zest to its finishing. We love it!

ACS (8)

The Tiramisu (RM10) is unlike your typical tiramisu. Comes in a form of mousse cake, lacks a little punch to our preference. It could have been better if the coffee taste was a little stronger.

ACS (2)


 

Food: Cakes, pies as well as coffee & tea (teapigs from UK is served here) is on the menu.

Service: Excellent. We really like how the owners came by to make small talks, really friendly as well! 🙂

Crowd: Pretty good start to their first day!
