Restart by Slo, Kota Damansara

October 31, 2021

Serving sourdough, coffee and kombucha, Restart by Slo marks a fresh beginning for its founder Sean, a barista-turned-kombucha maker who relies on the fermented beverage to strengthen his health. He launched the Slo home-brewed kombucha brand in 2020 and now, his first cafe in Kota Damansara, lined with a plethora of potted plants by the window and kokedama moss balls hanging from the ceiling.

Take it slow on a Sunday morning with a breakfast of sandwich champions - the Porky Sandwich features a thick, temptingly tender pork patty with lacto-fermented Palermo pepper sauce, pickled cucumber and caramelised onions, while the Ching Chong Chicken showcases a mound of moist shredded chicken tossed with roasted peanuts and soy dressing, drizzled with Restart's own Szechuan-inspired chilli oil for subtly lingering peppercorn pleasure. 

Slo puts a playfully skilled touch on kombucha, fermented for at least two weeks. Try Nº1, fruity with fresh red apples, floral with rose petals and lavender, herbaceous with rosemary and thyme.

Flat whites promise nutty Brazilian brilliance, but also order the black cherry hot chocolate.
