Foodlover @ Section 17 & Kaffe Cafe @ Taman Tun

December 21, 2012

Checking out a couple of friendly neighborhood cafes that have opened in recent weeks, starting with Section 17's FoodLover.

Asian favorites from FoodLover's something-for-everyone selection include Malay nasi lemak, Chinese Yung Chow rice & Thai fried tom yam rice, all carb-heavy.

Plenty of plump prawns in the nasi lemak's sambal udang. Worth the RM10.90 cost.

Western staples include spice-sauteed spaghetti with smoked duck breast slices (RM15.90). Fowl fans can also sample aglio olio spaghetti topped with chicken chop.

Cakes are fairly pleasurable & fairly priced here too. Try the banana coffee toffee caramel one ...

... as well as this nutty tiramisu-like creation, both RM5.90 per piece.

Next up, Kaffe Cafe, situated on the same street as TTDI's Mukha hangout.

Kaffe's cakes are creamy. Choices include the ever-popular Oreo cheesecake ...

... & the now-ubiquitous red velvet cake. Not the best ever, but not bad at all.

Macarons come in fun flavors like yam & lime to complement the regular choc & vanilla ones.

Kaffe takes its beverages seriously, so it's worth sipping the green tea latte ...

... as well as the regular latte, steaming-hot for a rainy night. Kaffe Cafe opens through midnight.

Bonus sweet stop: Driving from Taman Tun to 1 Utama for Wandx Patisserie.

Mini-tarts constitute this mall kiosk's pastry pleasures, with wide varieties for these RM2.90, cream-stuffed, crispy-sheet concoctions.

Our picks include peach, peanut butter & green tea, as well as a savory chicken floss one.
