Spillstone Coffee: KL's decaf destination for culinary trips to Greece, Jamaica & more, serving Central American coffee till midnight
June 8, 2023
One month after we first visited Spillstone Coffee, we return to explore this space in a different light - this time, after dark, when night casts a spectacular spell on Spillstone.
Enjoy an enchanted evening once the sun sets on Spillstone, when a magical glow illuminates its glass-ceilinged centrepiece and other corners of this nearly century-old prewar structure.
While enthusiasts now know Spillstone by its setting, its servings also merit recognition.
Spillstone's culinary offerings are inspired by the souvlaki of Greece, the jerk chicken of Jamaica and more. It has even named those dishes by the serpent-themed legends of Greek, Central American and Cherokee mythology.
While Spillstone has rapidly reaped fame as a decaf destination, it actually also offers caffeinated options, currently relying on coffee beans sourced from Central and South America for a distinctive drinking experience.
If you've only checked out Spillstone during daylight, it's time to head here past twilight too, especially since the cafe remains open through midnight everyday.
Spillstone's front section is where the coffee is brewed, with a semi-circle table that'll soon be transformed into a filter coffee hub.
K’uk’ulkan (RM33; named for the Mesoamerican serpent deity) takes us on a journey to Jamaica, the birthplace of jerk chicken.
Uktena (RM25; the horned serpent of Native American Cherokee legend) is the meat-free equivalent of an all-American burger.
The Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (RM27) is straightforward and savoury, an Italian-inflected crowd-pleaser that's perfect for hearty eaters, highlighting robustly punchy smoked duck laid atop al dente pasta.
A brunch favourite for dinner? Customers can enjoy Eggs Royale (RM29) and other all-day breakfast staples even after dark at Spillstone, showcasing smoked salmon and poached eggs with hollandaise sauce draped over English muffins.
Spillstone's White (RM15) is worthwhile, combining the characteristics of a cappuccino, latte and flat white, all in one, for a subtly creamier-than-conventional coffee.
For non-coffee drinkers who resist even decaf, the Pink Lemonade (RM16) is fabulous for fans of bracing acidity, channelling the liveliness of lemon juice with splashes of butterfly pea flower syrup for a vibrant blue-purple beverage.
Sip also on the Strawberry Yoghurt (RM16), a perky potion of strawberry puree with yoghurt milk, marvellous for children and the young at heart.
