#BuroEats: 5 New places to visit in KL for August 2018

1. Frozen by Ken

Frequent visitors of Jalan Telawi might have spotted this new name opposite of Bangsar Village II. Within its unsuspecting doors is an entire Instagram-worthy space complete with pink neon lights, wireframe chairs and touches of marble. What’s even more impressive is their extensive dessert menu, ranging from a wide variety of ice cream flavours to Australia-style desserts. Durian fans might have their heart skip a beat at The King which features Musang King ice cream and coconut sorbet, encased in a mini durian shape.

Address: No. 6, Jalan Telawi 4, Bangsar Baru

Opening hours: 8.30am – 11pm (Sun – Thurs); 8.30am – 12am (Fri & Sat); Closed on Tues

Phone number: 03 2856 8289

2. Lisette’s Café & Bakery

Formerly known as DR.Inc, the cafe has been rebranded with a new name and retains its lunch buffet (Tuesdays and Fridays at RM30 per person). Now run by The Social, they’ll be adding freshly baked bread as well in late August.

Address: 8 Jalan Kemuja, Bangsar

Opening hours: 8am – 5pm

3. Joloko

If you usually hang out in KL itself (Bangsar doesn’t count) and you love tropical-themed interiors, hit up Joloko. On the menu: spicy Caribbean-style bbq right from the grill, mezcal, tequila, cocktails and more.


Address: 43, Jalan Kamunting, Chow Kit

Opening hours: 5pm – 1am (Weds, Thurs & Sun); 5pm – 2am (Fri – Sat)

Phone number: 03 2694 1100

4. Tapas Club

For classic and authentic Spanish delights — paellas, Iberico pork from Spain itself, churros, you name it — Tapas Club is ready to serve and literally delight. The casual dining restaurant is the brainchild of world-acclaimed chefs Jose Angel Alonso (executive chef at Singapore’s Binomio and hosted the World Gourmet Summit 2016) and Manuel Berganza (the first Spanish chef in the US to receive a Michelin star through Andananda in New York).

Address: Level 7, Dining Loft @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours: 10.30am – 11.30pm

Phone number: 03 2110 2718

5. Kettlebell


Flashes of pink, gorgeous tableware (from gold spoons to matte plates that perfectly matches the marble tables) and healthy food pretty much sum up this cafe housed within Firestation at Plaza Mont Kiara. Fun fact: The cafe is the sister company of Publika’s Pan & Tamper.


Address: C-G-1, Plaza Mont Kiara

Opening hours: 8am – 6pm
