Convivencia Cafe, Bukit Tunku
December 31, 2023
If you love cafes off the beaten path, check out Bukit Tunku's Convivencia Cafe, tucked inside the International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilisation, open to the public.
This lush campus with Spanish Andalusian architectural influences is a beautiful backdrop for Convivencia, which specialises in Iranian cuisine.
Convivencia's cooking is comforting and confident, spanning Iran's national dish of ghormeh sabzi herb stew with kidney beans and dill rice (RM13); the classic diced mutton gheimeh with split peas and tomatoes, served with flatbread and fries (RM11); aromatic saffron cream cake (RM8.90); and Azerbaijan's Azercay black tea (RM6).
Fun fact: Convivencia is a Spanish term for coexistence, wonderfully representing the welcoming nature of this cafe, where every visitor is regarded like an honoured guest.
24, Persiaran Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin, Bukit Tunku, 50480 Kuala Lumpur.
