Chaiwalla & Co Container Cafe @ The Curve

December 27, 2013

Ideal for this Instagram age, Chaiwalla & Co could be the Klang Valleys first "container cafe" _ an eye-catching construct of converted cargo containers, plopped into The Curve & unwrapped this Christmas week.

If the name sounds familiar, it might be because Chaiwalla originally launched in Johor Baru earlier this year, reportedly conceived by two Malaysian childhood friends, one a former seafarer.

Honest tea is Chaiwallas catchphrase, though hipster tea seems equally apt; customers can choose a beverage base of tea, milk tea, coffee or fresh milk, add flavors (caramel, winter melon, vanilla & more) & fillings (including basil seeds & nata de coco), plus select a sweetness level.

Saffron-&-rose-flavored milk tea with yogurt pops & zero added sugar (RM5.80 nett). Enjoyably mild-tasting, without the curse of cloying artifice, & sufficiently thick, though filled with a bit more ice than expected. 

Coffee with honey & coffee jelly. Ultimately satisfying for a refreshment on a hot afternoon; worth the price. Service is fast & fairly friendly.

 Pastries & brownies are also available; expect to see more photos of Chaiwalla pepper KLs social media networks for months to come.

Need more drinks? Coffea Coffee has opened its latest branch at The Curve too, adding to its outlets at Bangsar, Sunway Pyramid & Subang. Note: Chaiwalla is on The Curves relatively placid end, outside RadioShack & Borders; Coffea is amid the restaurant-packed Piazza zone.
