Ello KL is the latest venture by The Brickhouse Group—the team behind Pokok KL, Daun KL and The Grounds. Unlike its sister F&B establishments, the Ello! kitchen is built for delivery only (although takeaways from the HQ in Mahsa Avenue are welcome). It specialises in ‘pita pockets’ that are baked fresh daily and filled with wholesome ingredients for a healthy, no-fuss meal. Options include the Big Beef Breakfast for those with big appetites and Vegesaur for a vegetarian-friendly pick, among other a la carte and set choices. To complement your pita, there’s also a nutritious selection of juices and fruit-infused water to eat (and drink) the rainbow.

Available for: Takeaway and delivery (Beepit)

Address: MAHSA Avenue, Block D, Basement Jalan Ilmu, off, Jln Profesor Diraja Ungku Aziz, 59100 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 11am to 7pm daily

4. Socho & Socho‘n’Sushi

As far as first impressions go, Socho humours us with its bright blue logo of a man nonchalantly munching on fried chicken. Then, there are the 8-bit food posters on the menu, which could either leave you dubiously hesitant or curious enough to find out more. The modern, original concept first launched at the end of April, offering a modest range of Korean fried chicken, before expanding its menu to include drinks and sides. Its name means 'box' in Korean, recalling the nostalgic lunch boxes that Koreans grew up with during their childhood. More recently, the brand launched a Japanese offshoot, Socho’n’Sushi, which offers an assortment of rice dishes, sushi boxes and omakase sets.

6. Loffi, Sri Petaling

The sourdough trend lives on with Loffi being one of its latest proponents, albeit with a unique twist. At this cat-inspired bakery café in Sri Petaling, you’ll find “Malaysia’s first lava sourdough pillow bun”— a soft, fluffy and somewhat colourful take on the traditional sourdough bread. The menu isn’t extensive, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find unusual offerings such as the spicy Nasi Lemak bun or Japanese Matcha Raisin bun. Top it off with your choice of kombucha, yoghurt, or hot oat milk for a nice breakfast or teatime treat.
