Merchant's Lane @ Jalan Petaling, KL

The name of the cafe is quite interesting and I always thought is a name when i heard someone mention. ''mei zheng lin'' chinese of of Merchant's Lane. 

The cafe restaurant is situated at the second level, along the way up the stairs we see dark bright sunlight as the ceiling is transparent. 

The buildings here are long and depth inside have several different corner for customers to pick on. Outdoors, indoors, sofa tables etc.

My Minion Boy has his seat too!
I like the natural eroded walls but went there during noon, the sun is just right shinning on top of our head. Can't sit there for long.

5oz white @ RM11.00 each
There are 2 sizes in white coffee. 3oz or 5oz and you request coffee of your choice, be it latte or cappuccino. Or you may pick the iced white coffee.

Hongkie Beef Stew @ RM19.00
The beef was slow cooked for 12-hours with their cantonese style until it was so tender and just melted in mouth. The gravy is so thick and comes with strong beef aroma. Mix so well with the mash potato.

Italian Chow Mein @ RM23.00
Italian chow mein is the spaghetti agile olio fried with asian style chilli flake topped with traditional malaysian chicken rending. The chicken is generously huge and meaty. I felt the dish is too spicy for me. I can't differentiate is the rendang or chilli flake that is spicy.

Merchant's Waffle @ RM16.00
Lastly the dessert i was waiting for long, their signature waffle drizzle with the homemade caramel sauce. You get a choice of the ice cream flavour: earl grey, vanilla, kaya toast or panda coconut passionfruit & gulf melaka bits. The waffle is quite unique like eating roti jala kinds of feel, springy and soft. I like the waffle served hot and eating with the ice cream is like both cold and hot in the mouth. yummilicious.

Is usually full house especially lunch and dinner time. More to white collars during weekdays.

Closer Kitchen & Espresso Bar @ Mutiara Damansara

Often see this cafe in FB even its open. Finally today I can try it out. It situated near Tesco, The Curve, just right in front of the guard house of Menara TSR. The cafe is so fresh and bright with full glass drop at the side and front. Many little plants in the cafe. 

Inside is very spacious and there is a corner for a long wooden table, good for group of friends for gathering.

Order is at the coffee bar, you may take the menu to your table and walk to the counter to order & pay.

 Flat White @ RM11.00
I feel the coffee here is quite strong, is like double shot in my flat white. I like the strong aroma taste, a little bitter but still acceptable without adding any sugar.

 Mushroom Cappuccino @ 10.00
The mushroom cappuccino soup came with two little but thick pieces of garlic toast bread. I was expecting some cappu in the soup but hmmm just some ''bubble foam'' on top. This is a soup base instead of those thick flour soup. Inside comes with generous shiitake mushroom tiny pieces.

The Perfect Salmon Parcel @ RM18.00
Got this with a surprise. Salmon in a pastry puff ! Inside stuff with a thick piece of seared salmon fillet and top with melted cheese on a bed of spinach. Not much seasoning in it but it goes well with their moroccan spicy sauce. I like the arugula salad.

 Aloha Grilled Chicken with Pineapple @ RM18.00
This sandwich is quite big portion. I definitely unable to finish it all. It comes with oregano bread serve with mixed lettuce, thick & succulent chargrilled chicken. Topped with caramelised pineapple ring and freshly sliced onion. The chicken is tender and meaty, good for those on diet as there is no fats at all.

Really love this place, sun shines inside but don't feel any heat.

Hinz Cafe @ Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Drop by to visit a customer and came across this cozy cafe nearby. Looks simple and nice like a homey place to have a coffee break.

Handmade deco on each table

Flat White
Different between mocha and mochaccino is that Mochaccino will have more foam than mocha. Yes 2 inch of foam on top. The portion is huge for a tall size. Taste wise, it is actually quite mild of both choco and coffee. For me, i prefer a stronger and thicker taste.

 Breakfast Set : Omelette w Caramelised potato
I was in a hurry and they recommend me for this omelette breakfast. Huge portion of omelette and inside stuff with red capsicum and tomato. The taste is quite blend but serve nice with the caramelised potato. Coleslaw and salad is very flavourful.
