The Twin Sister of a Melbourne based café with an Asian Modern Twist has made its way to Bangsar Malaysia! A friend took me here to have a taste of a Melbourne café in KL. It was just like being in a Melbourne café except for the crazy humidity! Located just adjacent to a 60 year printing company, it is a hipsters dream where young and old come together! The prices reflect the quality and quantity of what you’re getting here – real café food that combines the best flavours of East and West.
It is so popular and they understand we wanted to sit inside as it is humid like a hairy dogs armpit in Malaysia! There was a little wait but we got the table that we wanted – air conditioned and inside which was what we needed. The service was quick and prompt – they needed to be, people come and go all the time here.
The price is right for the location, ambience, service and food. Compared to other cafes in KL, this one actually feels like you’re paying for a quality meal. Just don’t compare it to a Starbucks or Old Town White Coffee (meh!)
These guys have raised the standard for Malaysian cafes, learning their craft in Melbourne and bringing it back to KL was a great move and Malaysians have a constantly ravaging appetite. We came for brunch and ordered the Gypsy King (pictured above) and the Ebi Doorstep Sandwich. Both were great but the Gypsy King was King! Both were fresh and absolutely spot on with the flavours.
