First opened in July, Box Kuala Lumpur is a humble new café nestled on the corner of Jalan Hang Lekiu. It is popular among cyclists looking for a quick coffee break, thanks in part to the convenient bicycle parking area right in front of the shop. The menu includes a range of breakfast sets, pasta, sandwiches, salads, cakes, and beverages. If you’re fully vaccinated and ready for dine-ins, catch views of passersby on the busy street outside from the window seats or chill out in the bright blue box as you bask in (almost) a sense of normalcy.

Available for: Dine-in, takeaway, delivery and drive-thru

Address: 34D & 34E, Jalan Hang Lekiu, 50050 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 8am to 6pm on weekdays, 8am to 8pm on weekends

Circle Café is the latest coffee joint in the heart of KL, occupying a 100sq ft shop lot on the corner of Jalan Alor.

Tucked away in the unassuming Midfields Square, Messy Buffalo is home to “Malaysia’s first wood-fire wings”. The restaurant is distinguished by a bright orange sign displaying a buffalo graphic logo, but you’ll probably be greeted first by the fragrant incense of smoked wood if you opt for takeaways. The buffalo wings come in a variety of flavours, grilled on skewers over rubber tree firewood and complemented with a side dip of your choice. There’s also a decent selection of wood-fire pizzas, ranging from classics like Ala’ Margherita to premium options like Wagyu Supremo and Smoke Quack.

Available for: Takeaway and delivery

Address: B1-3, Midfields Square West, Jalan 11/108C, Off Lebuhraya Sungai Besi, 57100, Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 11.30am to 8.30pm

Helmed by a Malaysian chef and his Vietnamese wife who met in Macau, The Hungry Lab is a new café in Sri Petaling that launched in July. The couple returned to Malaysia this year after eight years of working in the Las Vegas of Asia, starting over with this modern café. It is characterised by a brutalist façade with but a small window and entrance carved out from the concrete—mirroring by the bare interiors within, where a single barren tree forms the centerpiece. You’ll find a fusion of flavours and influences here, with dishes such as banh mi, Slow-Cooked Wagyu Short Rib, and the T.H.L Signature Pork Burger.

Available for: Takeaway and delivery

Address: 38-G, Jln Radin Bagus 3, Bandar Baru Sri Petaling, 57000 Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 10am to 8pm daily

Rounding off this month’s list is KLCG Confectionary Bakery—a vibrant, buzzy bakery-cum-factory spin-off of Kuala Lumpur City Gallery. Cronuts (read: a croissant-donut hybrid) are its specialty, with flavours such as Lotus Biscoff, Matcha, Dark Chocolate, and Melted Caramel. Other baked goods and sweet treats include croissants and cakes. Those who prefer savoury dishes can also choose from a selection of New York bagels (think burgers, but with bagel buns) and “croissant’wich” (you can probably guess what this is), as well as a handful of ‘GrabNGo’ meals like Hainanese Chicken Chop.

Available for: Delivery via Beep / Grab / FoodPanda (cronuts only available via Beep)

Address: 51, Jalan Midah 3, Taman Midah, 56000 Kuala Lumpur
