Closer Cafe at Mutiara Damansara

Saw some interesting posts about this place so we decided to check it out ourselves after a morning run. The place has a minimalistic design, with mostly black and white interiors. Love their logo and design.

The menu looks impressive, though it's a shame we only came for breakfast. I am sure their lunch menu -- especially for the working crowd around the area will benefit from their food list. I also saw on their Facebook that they have started to serve dinner. 

Meanwhile, the coffee we ordered were all very good. Pancakes were below expectations though. Eggs benedict was nicely presented with the pumpkin slice in the middle... however would have loved it if the pumpkin was warm when they served it.

Overall, would give this place another chance and would choose other food items to go along with their aromatic coffee.

And oh, the best thing of all -- it was extremely easy to park on a weekend morning. They have their own parking slots outside their cafe -- so plus points for that!

Lovely coffee 

Pancakes were okay. Nothing special about it from my point of view. Perhaps it's because I am a pancake perfectionist, so maybe it's acceptable for most people. Or maybe the chef was having a bad day?

Greyhound Cafe Kuala Lumpur Malaysia

For people who love traveling to Bangkok, they will surely know the fashion cafe called Greyhound. Now, Greyhound Cafe has landed in Malaysia, specifically at Bukit Bintang, the heart of Kuala Lumpur. And fortunately, it is opened by the lovely Chryseis Tan of Berjaya Corp so we were able to get first glimpse of the place before it formally opened.

First up, the ambience, interiors and tableware are beautiful! The attention to detail is very evident from the point you walk into the door. A few favorites: the bar area where they spelled out Greyhound with their tiles, the beautiful black and white interiors, and lastly the plates that have different designs!

It was a nice evening out for me and hubby as we checked out Greyhound. We had nice portions for all our orders, though it may be possible that for Malaysians they may find the portions small. We enjoyed it because it allows us to try more things without overeating.

Out of all the stuff we tried that evening, the things I would re-order for my next visit will surely be: prawn bisque (superb stuff!), coconut shake, complicated noodle, greyhound iced tea, and end the meal with banoffee dessert. I am pretty sure there are many other yummy stuff I haven't discovered about Greyhound Cafe yet, and we're due to revisit again so we can find out! Meantime... some pictures to get you started.

Super love this coconut shake!
Check out the different designs on the plate

Phad Thai noodles -- love how we were able to remove all the chili flakes, since we don't eat spicy stuff. You get your own sauce condiments, so fire away with all kinds of sauces!

This is super creative. Love the design on the bar counter.

Love this dish -- Complicated Noodle -- a bit of work as you build your own noodle wrap

Dessert people rejoice! Your very own Parfait Station in the house.

This was worth all the calories I gained that night. The banoffee was superb!
