Beam Specialty, Sri Damansara

A rather odd place to find a cafe but boy it was a worthy visit. Tucked inside an industrial area in Sri Damansara, Beam Specialty used to only provide coffee beans to cafe but now has decided to turn their place into a cafe. You could easily miss it as there is no clear sign of it being a cafe. 

T's Mocha. It was a disappointment as it was too milky.

Their most ordered cake, When Tea Meets Coffee. A very light and fluffy cake infused with tea and paired up with coffee toffee. I'd return for this cake, definitely. 

Their Pulut Tai Tai is to die for as well. Dense, soft and fragrant. The kaya alongside it was perfect too.

I chose to have their cup of hand brewed coffee as I want something non-milky that day

My awesome cup of coffee. A mixture of Mandheling and Congo.

They have bottles and bottles of different coffee beans with labels. Feel free to ask the barista more about the beans and its taste.

Their Japanese Salad is equally good. Fresh salmon and prawns paired up with lots cabbage and lettuce. I don't remember clearly but the sauce should be Japanese Sesame sauce.

Beef Panini. Very generous with the cheese, salad and beef. Though I find the beef chewy.

Overall, it was a very good experience as food was good and service was excellent. Expect large crowd during brunch and lunch hours.

Whimsical Gelateria & Cafe, Publika Solaris Dutamas

Desserts are the saviour for stressful people. When under stress, a scoop or two of ice cream will make up for it. I have always loved Cielo Dolci ice creams after having tasted their Lavender Honey and Matcha ones in Paradigm Mall. Now that its available in Mont Kiara, I don't have to drive to PJ to get their creative and yummy ice creams.  

Their ice cream menu is affixed on the wall. How unique!

 My friend and I ordered Pulut Hitam and Salted Caramel with Waffles. The portion is big enough to be a main meal! Well, having something sweet for lunch or dinner isn't a bad thing.

 Apart from waffles and ice creams, cakes and brownies are available too.

Their menu is comparatively more limited at night so be sure to visit them during the afternoon for a more extensive choices. They serve coffees too.

Brewmen, Solaris Mont Kiara

I was on Foursquare looking for a quiet place to work and found Brewmen. A coffee lover like me is always open to more caffeine intake.  The cafe is cozy with good lighting. You can get all the basic coffee orders as well as savoury cakes.

 My sandwich. Nothing spectacular but the bread is dense and crunchy.

I took home a cake and found it overly sweet to my liking.

Unique wall designs with cup holders hanging on the wall.

Do take note that their wifi only works for the tables near the entrance. I was setting up my laptop there and the staff saw me but I wasn't informed even after me getting their wifi password. It was until after I asked why couldn't connect then only they told me so I had to shut down my laptop and move. Quite disappointing as it was my first time here. Service was not up to par as 2 of the staff did not even smile even after I greeted them with a smile. Nop, not even a thank you or smile after I finished my meal and decided to grab a cake home. Would I return? No. I have since passed there 6 times but still can't make myself go in.
