Client Testimonial

Simple and genuine tasting food harkening back to the way I remember as a child. Bubur cacar was superb, with the proper variety of sweet potato and yam, melt in mouth but not cooked until disintegrated. Black glutinous rice cooked till appropriate softness with still a bitey mouthfeel with no starchiness. Environment is clean and pleasant. Sambal served with the meehoon is balanced in sweetness, savouriness and spiceness. we are looking to come back to try other stuff….

Client Testimonial

It was rather quiet on a Sunday night. Service by the guy was great, attentive and very friendly.

Seemed like he was the only person on shift. We decided on a waffle & churros. Both were crispy and went very well with the chocolate (I specified crispy cause I like it that way).

Bill came up to RM 38, not too bad – as the other reviews say, it’s cheaper than the other chocolate chains around. Would probably come back!
