If you’re looking for a place to chill out with friends, we can’t recommend this place more. The place is bright and comfortable, with plenty of baked goods and main meals served.
Stopping by for coffee here, old school kopi or cham (tea plus kopi) is a charm, fragrant not just from the drink, but from the nostalgia of this storied biscuit shop. A prime example of how the old can be reinvented for modern times, Fung Wong will hopefully last a long time as having afternoon tea with Chinese pastries is such a lovely change from the usual cake and coffee cafes.
Personally, the filling wasn’t actually to my liking as I find the veggies were overly wilted hence its slimy texture kind of disintegrated from the melted cheese. Perhaps replacing it with wild mushrooms would be a better choice as these fungi tends to blend in better in a more harmonious way with any toasted cheese. Just my two cents. Nevertheless, the sourdough toastie itself was great!
Food is good but prices at The Crane KL are a little higher than neighbouring establishments, but worth a visit for the experience of being in the historical venue, just to enjoy the beautiful space and drink in the nostalgia.
Rather than to squeeze with the rest of crowded hype cafes in town, I would rather visit a quaint and cozy indie brand for some serenity while enjoying earnest cup of java- and also a slice of sweet won’t really hurt your diet that’s for sure (=
Matcha Black Sesame (MYR 13) It’s definitely an easy decision for any matcha lover, hehe.
From its implicative name, you might already have gotten a good guess that this café does roast its own beans which makes it stands out from its other equally notable peers, whom already in the coffee bean roasting business for quite awhile now. Nevertheless, each technique and roasting style certainly has its own unique charms.
Macadamia Cheesecake (MYR 17) Simply divine especially the fresh crisp of the nuts!
It was hot, fresh off the stove. It was spicy too .. the kind whereby your forehead starts to sweat, lol. The cook did ask us whether spicy was okay and we were all ‘Yesssss!’. When this happens elsewhere and I request for spicy, it rarely is spicy. Here however, if you want spicy – they’ll give you spicy. I missed it …the sweating , the mouth in desperate need for water, your face starting to sweat all over. Kaw kaw, man. This dish is basically a combination of rice + curry gravy + chicken. Ooo man, deliciousss. Thick, spicy gravy. A generous portion of rice and medium size chicken pieces. Yup, we enjoyed it for sure.
Overall, we love the ambience for Yew Yew KL, with the condition that it is not full house. Lol. Service is friendly and staffs are really friendly & attentive, offering us water seeing that we stay at outdoor for quite long. Thoughtful gesture that made us felt warmth.
