#BuroEats: 7 New cafes and restaurants in KL to visit for April 2019

1. Snitch by The Thieves, The Gardens Mall


The Breakfast Thieves are out to strike at your hearts and stomachs with their second venture. Having enjoyed a celebrated success from their APW cafe, they’re stepping a little out of their comfort zone. Snitch by The Thieves serves up a wide variety of hearty dishes that are both Western, Asian and local; while retaining many of their breakfast and brunch favourites. That being said, some of these dishes are on the playful side such as the Vietnamese pho which includes watermelon.

Address: T-225A&B, 3rd Floor, The Gardens, Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours:

Sun – Thurs: 9am – 12am

Fri & Sat: 9am – 3am

2. Agrain by Hale, The Gardens Mall

For the unfamiliar, Hale is a healthy food delivery company with the goal of breaking stereotypes that eating healthy means eating tasteless, boring food. After gaining a positive response, they expanded to offline stores and this one at The Gardens is their third outlet. Like most salad bars, Agrain also has the option for you to build your own bowl with a wide variety of choices such as cauliflower rice, Aglio-olio whole-wheat pasta, Piri-Piri chicken breast and more.

Address: Suite G.01, The Gardens, North Tower, Kuala Lumpur

*Walk through Coffee Club at Robinsons’ Ground Floor and head outside to see Agrain by hale

Props go to them for also including gluten-free and refined sugar options. Coffee drinkers too can opt for almond, oat, or soy milk as non-dairy substitutes as well.

They also have a fun selection of cocktails for those of you who are interested.

6. Apron Fools, Subang Jaya


There’s never one set menu at Apron Fools but what they definitely serve is a counter of mouth-salivating desserts. The sweet treats differ by the week and some days, they even have savoury dishes for those looking for more than a slice of cake or two. Some of the cakes that have caught our eye: The Mango Strawberry Pavlova, Earl Grey Tealightful Cake, Chocolate Whoopie Pies and more.

7. Pause Cafe, Kuala Lumpur


Who doesn’t love a cafe with a strong name that speaks to us? What’s even stronger than their name game is their selection of food and drinks. Choose from something as simple (yet cooked to a fine balance of flavours and textures) as their Creamy Carbonara or rice with pork lard, minced pork and onsen egg; to something from their more intriguing drinks menu such as the Sober Tonic (espresso, tonic water and ginger-spiked syrup) or Taichi – Ying and Yang (tea, espresso shot and steamed milk served in a Chinese teacup). 

Address: 140, Jalan Choo Cheng Khay, Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours:

10am – 7pm

12pm – 6.30pm (kitchen)
