Among the highlights are a dessert kitchen in Imbi, a cat-inspired café in Cheras, an artisan bakery in Taman Paramount, and more

As Malaysia enters another full lockdown to flatten the curve of Covid-19, the food and beverage industry has to brace itself yet again for another heavy blow. With most establishments relying primarily on dine-ins for their turnovers, having the option of takeaway, pick-up and/or delivery is often the least these businesses can do to cover overheads.

While we miss the good ol’ days of café hopping and visiting a new eatery, there’s no reason we can’t still #SupportLocal and order in from one of the numerous spots that have cropped up around the Klang Valley. To give our fellow Malaysian foodpreneurs a hand, check out our list of new cafes and restaurants to satisfy your cravings this month.

1. Sucrose Desserts, Imbi

Barely a week old, Sucrose is the new dessert kitchen and counter located on the doorstep of Imbi’s Curee Café. The humble space is founded by pastry chef CK, who returned to KL after cutting his teeth at various hotels in Maldives and Macau. He has even won Gold in the Plated Dessert category at the 11th Edition of the Hotel Asia Exhibition & International Culinary Challenge 2015. The menu currently consists of four desserts: Eva (a chocolate Paris Brest), Audrey (chilled cheese mousse), Liu Ying (cinnamon apple tatin with panna cotta), and Josephine (peanut mousse).

Available for: Takeaway and delivery

Opening hours: 12pm to 8pm (closed on Wednesdays)

2. bröom Artisan Bakery, Taman Paramount

A micro-bakery, brunch kitchen and social space in one, bröom is the new kid on the block in Paramount Garden. It is helmed by head baker Ryan Wong, who honed his craft in London and Melbourne before returning to home ground. The cosy establishment offers an assortment of baked goods spanning sourdough, croissants and cookies, as well as lunch boxes and bowls with Malaysian and Japanese influences.

Available for: Takeaway, pick-up and delivery

Opening hours: 8.30am to 5.30pm (closed on Tuesdays)

3. Neutrals, TTDI

This sun-washed space in TTDI is brought to you by a collaboration between PJ’s The Roast Things coffee roasters and Bangsar South’s Sunbather Coffee café. The former is responsible for sourcing and roasting the beans that go into Neutrals’ coffee menu, whereas the latter is behind the kitchen that now offers Japanese-style sandwiches and scones. Though the café is not yet ready to cater to delivery, folks in the neighbourhood will be lucky to get a glimpse of the bright, verdant café while getting take-outs here.

Available for: Takeaway only

Address: 30A, Persiaran Zaaba, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.

Opening hours: 8:30am to 5pm (closed on Wednesdays)

4. Three Years Old, Bukit Bintang

You may have already come across posts of this aesthetic café on your Instagram feeds, but #ICYMI, Three Years Old is Bukit Bintang’s latest hangout spot (at least when dine-ins are allowed).

There’s also a Happy Meal Menu curated especially for the FMCO, featuring comfort food options such as pastas and sandwiches.

5. Poppy Kat Café, Cheras

Cheras has recently welcomed a new café characterised by vivid poppy orange interiors and punctuated with potted greens and geometrical lines. As the name suggests, the café is inspired by cute little kittens—Mochi, Mimi and MeowMeow—all of which are rescues that you may find lounging around the space. On the menu are breakfast sets featuring its signature croffles, alongside cakes, tarts, and a variety of coffee and tea beverages. The tagline says it all: come for the coffee, stay for the cats.

Available for: Pick-up and delivery

Address: 34A, Jalan Nadchatiram, Taman Taynton View, 56000 Kuala Lumpur

6. Fifty-Three by Reggae Mansion

A beary adorable surprise awaits at this new Chinatown restaurant once dine-in opens again. Expect teddy soft toys for company on the chesterfield sofas or sitting on the wall-mounted chairs perched above tables at the al-fresco dining area. As for the menu, take your pick from the extensive selection of pizzas, burgers, pastas, udons, and rice bowls that reflect a fusion culinary approach. For those concerned, it’s worth noting that the kitchen only uses ingredients sourced from 100 per cent halal-certified suppliers.

Available for: Takeaway only

Address: 57, Jalan Tun H. S. Lee, 50050 Kuala Lumpur

After operating for two years in Jaya One from 2016, then reopening in Damansara Perdana with sister restaurant Grain in 2018 before taking a hiatus a year later, Fēst is back again—this time with a fresh start in TTDI. Chef-founder Jia Yuan now brings his fan-favourite Chicken Waffle to a humble third-floor corner lot (above PotboyMart) in the bustling locality, best enjoyed with a cuppa Joe, matcha (by Niko Neko) or cold brew. During the FMCO, Fēst will also be offering rice bowls on top of its usual waffles and salads.
