Newly opened since 12 October, Blossom Glass Mansion breathes life into a formerly abandoned Imbi residence. It serves as a multi-level food and events space, with a warm, welcoming cafe on the ground level. Surrounded by nature, the brick mansion retains elements from its unique heritage including its decades-old original floors and window frames. Glass ceilings and skylights add a contemporary touch, complemented with a white spiral staircase in front of the caffeine bar. In terms of the menu, the cafe offers fusion dishes including all-day dining and brunch options, sharing bites, pastries and a selection of beverages.

After setting up its first cafe in Kajang, Koffie Lane has recently unveiled another branch in PJ , located in 3 Two Square. Drawing inspiration from the colonial era, the new corner lot shop features a distinctive white-washed exterior that continues inside, contrasted by checkered floors and dark wooden furnishings. Aesthetics aside, the Muslim-friendly cafe shares the same menu as its sister outlet, offering breakfast and brunch classics alongside crafted beverages and desserts.

Adorned with a Portuguese-inspired mural in the colours of the country’s flag, this laid-back space offers a calm refuge to bask in the city’s views while dining.

7. Restaurant Shu KL

A post shared by Restaurant Shu KL (@restaurantshukl)

According to the team behind Restaurant Shu, migration—as in the movement of people—creates new threads, new cultures, new cuisines. For instance, American-Chinese cuisine is not the same as Chuka Ryori or Chinese cuisine. With that in mind, it embarks on a culinary journey exploring the movement of the diaspora to reconnect with our roots and discover how our culture and cuisine has changed with migration to our land today. Led by head chef and owner, Chin Wong, the launch menu offers finely curated Malaysian Chinese courses that tell our story. 

Shu officially opens on 1 December, but is currently accepting reservations for up to six pax until the end of the year.

8. Tamp Hard Coffee

Cheras welcomes new Tamp Hard coffee to its burgeoning cafe culture, featuring an industrial design with a raw, understated setting. It’s founded by the team behind Aki’s Kohi, but that’s as far as their similarities go as their concepts are starkly contrasted. Come solo or with a companion for catch-ups over coffee and pastries, but take note that the seating arrangements don’t quite cater to bigger groups.

Slurrp started out as a home-based venture in 2021, after founder Gary lost his job the year before due to the pandemic. He went on to secure a job, but his heart and soul remained in the kitchen, thus prompting the decision to quit and work full-time on Slurrp together with his wife. Now starting a brand new chapter at its first brick-and-mortar location in SS2, Petaling Jaya, Slurrp is dedicated to the flavours of Kuching with popular classics such as kolo mee and Sarawak laksa, as well as lesser known dishes like Kampua mee and tomato mee. (Note: Slurrp serves non-halal food.)
