The Other Half @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur


It’s been a while since we’ve gone café-hunting around Klang Valley. Not because we were lazy, but merely due to our very busy schedules lately that’s draining us out. Pfffftt! We’ve dedicated most of our weekends to just resting, besides spending time with my loved ones and managing some personal stuff. Yes, I know we still need to eat but we’ve been dependent on home-cooked and also home delivery services. Obviously I’m not going to starve myself silly! Anyway, speaking of spending quality time with loved ones. My bestie told me she really wanted to check out this new café in TTDI called The Other Half. So I thought to myself “This is perfect!! Finally somebody suggested a new place to explore and nobody needs to scratch his/her head trying to answer that million dollar question – where to eat?!”.

Breakfast Thieves @ APW Bangsar

APW, short for Art Printing Works is a creative space for different private events / markets such as art, fashion, music, product launch and even community yoga. This space spreads a very positive energetic vibe somehow, and there’s bound to be an event or activity happening every week. It is no wonder a hot spot, where all the young and hip are, to see and be seen. Not forgetting the F&B outlets that’s also drawing the crowd in. Somehow in the past it was quite the opposite for me. I’ve been to APW a number of times but I find it way too warm during the day, that it would discourage me to even think about heading there. But since we really wanted brunch at Breakfast Thieves and thought APW was a nice place for photos, we quickly head over at 10AM before the crowd built up (and before we both turn into grumpy cats).

Wild Honey @ Pavilion, K.L.

It was one of those rare occasions that I would be spotted in the city for lunch on a Sunday. Futhermore, it was in a mall. You know lah, some of them are always swarmed with people over weekends. To me, having meals in malls are almost always due to convenience. I’m one of those who gets agitated when there’s a long queue, and don’t deal too well with crowds. If it wasn’t because I had some shopping to do, I wouldn’t have ended up in Wild Honey, Pavilion. Continue reading “Wild Honey @ Pavilion, K.L.”

Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village II

Last Sunday, my dear family and I had our lunch over at Marmalade, located on the first floor of Bangsar Village II in Telawi. Marmalade is a family-friendly café serving healthy and very delicious comfort food. I am little embarrassed to say; it was only my second time eating there although it’s been around for more than a decade already. Even more so hard to believe given I’m always around Bangsar Telawi! The first was when my big brother had a craving for their famous carrot cake, while I was there to share half the cake for a cuppa coffee. Continue reading “Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village II”

The Pantry Cafe @ Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

The Pantry is a modest looking neighbourhood café serving gourmet all-day breakfast. It is along Lorong Kurau and tucked away from the bustling streets of Maarof and Telawi. Over the past few years, Lorong Kurau had evolved from the old side of Bangsar to what is now a small stretch of eateries from the east to west. I remember only good things about this café when I first tried some time last year.

Common Man Coffee Roasters @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur

Instead of my regular salad wrap and cold pressed juice after a sweat sesh at Kiara Hill on a Saturday morning, I went to Common Man Coffee Roasters for a try since I’ve seen some photos of this cafe on Instagram. Lucky thing it was only 2 minutes away from Kiara Hill by foot. CMCR was originally established in Singapore but now has expanded into Malaysia opening its first outlet here in TTDI Kuala Lumpur, offering a full menu (brunch up ’til dinner) and some seriously tasty coffee.  Continue reading “Common Man Coffee Roasters @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur”
