Beca Tea is now brewing at Damansara Uptown, founded by a Malaysian family that has traded tea in a Chinatown store since the early 1930s. Drawing from the family’s five-generation expertise, the new cavern expands its legacy with innovative tea offerings that span from nitro-charged tea to cha-kigori. Although the space is mainly set up for grab-and-go orders, its minimalist, natural tea-toned interiors boast an aesthetic appeal that will surely attract social media shutterbugs.

Good News for pizza enthusiasts—there’s a new joint in Petaling Street serving wood-fired Neapolitan pizzas. Occupying what was formerly a branch of Sin Chew Daily, Good News achieved its brand of “leopard crust pizzas” after over 600 experiments. Pizza aside, the menu also includes small plates for sharing, pastas, and desserts. With neon orange lights and mismatched furniture defining its offbeat charm, the pizzeria sets the scene for a fun, casual pizza hangout with friends—best paired with its selection of wines and craft beers.
