so here I am, talking about the intangible food that interest me soooo much!
I'm talking about Cafe Cafe here!
so what is it?...
Stepping into Café Café, one leaves the mundate streets of Kuala Lumpur and is immediately enthralled by its lavish interior; magnificent Occident in this part of urban Orient. Café Café, quintessentially Parisian - echoes of the combination of Le Quartier du Marais, Montmartre together with a touch of Moulin Rough perhaps? offers those with a discerning eye and taste, a delicious smorgasbord of visual and appetising designer fetish.
Many urbanists have already claimed Café Café as their home away from home. An indulgent in luxury, rewarding with comforts of haute decadence, an escape from the harsh industrial and minimalist chic of too many modern restaurants. Here, the ones is to know enjoy privileges of classic dining, without pretentiousness. Classic yet modern, formally relaxed, flamboyantly simple. Café Café is truly a pastiche of styles that some together to enchant. A refreshingly informal place to meet freiends, colleagues, or even a special acquaintance.
Sumptuous dining in a classic European style; Café Café affords its patrons a unique atmosphere, where an opulent interior enable one's imagination and inspiration to be truly stirred...
i was immediately taken by the strong interior design (and i really do love interior design!) the majestic visuals of their restaurant, and amaaaaazing ambience. it's like... it is just visually orgasmic! i can't even explain how incredibly beautiful that place is!
it's like being lost somewhere in time and you stumbled across this fairytale like place of your dreams! (well at least my dream xD)
lets talk about their food... i mean CUISINE.
Our accomplished chef serves a repertoire of mainly French and Italian meals. Classic favourites include traditional foie gras (goose liver), which is our signature dish. We also specialise in succulent French duck breast, and for lovers of Italian food we offer pasta and risotto cooked with dried porcini mushroom. To stimulate the palate, we offer a range of mouth-watering entrees like mussels in white wine,escargots, scallops with black truffles, etc…
Lovers of desert will appreciate our range of homemade classic French and Italian foods. Cafe Cafe specialises in French dark chocolate or banana mousse. Alternatively, may we tempt you to indulge in our crème brulee – a classic French favourite. Our tiramisu comes highly recommended with creamy Italian mascarpone cheese and a touch of strong French brandy.
minus the "... strong French brandy" part, this piece of heaven on earth is actually halal. I've looked up on it, and to tell you the truth, I will be GREATLY disappointed if it's not!!! (I just tend to do research online on the restaurant that i want to put both my feet into)
eventhough the food does live up to it's name, but it's the ambience that you're really paying for.
let's see what media have to say about it eh?
While the rest of Kuala Lumpur seems to be caught up in the wave of post-modern minimalism or nu-Oriental styles, Café Café bucks its own sublime brand of tasteful European opulence and rustic ingenuity...

With an atmosphere that's reminiscent of a favourite neighbourhood hangout on the Left Bank in Paris. Café Café is the ideal place to savour a glass of Merlot while Dalida hums Softly in the background...

I don't think we're in Kuala Lumpur anymore...
The Café, naturally, makes a marvellous place .................. makes you feel as if you're dining at old Tante Mathilde's .
[Wine & Dine 2003]
Step inside and you will find a place full of old European charm. There is A bit of Paris, Milan and London...
[New Straight Times]
and there's more where THAT came from. Located somewhere in KL near the Jalan Maharajalela, this place is certainly to DIE for. (for me) xD
well apart from that, it's the price that really concerns me. =3= it's better to have RM50-RM100. Eventhough I think it is quite affordable once in awhile, but hey~ I'm just a girl who relies on her parents for her income xD so I can't really say anything... which brings us back to the main point here, I really miss my family *cough* especially my parents *cough* 8D
WELL!! lets see some eye popping and "oh my god!!" triggering pictures shall we?
and some pictures of the mouth watering delicacies~
sigh~ i'm hungry. well I guess it's my fault for doing research on restaurants LOL!!!
