3. Bisque Café at Damansara Perdana
Look for the red entrance – it’s your passageway into Bisque, not only a paradise of cakes but a haven for hearty hot meals, fulfilling a long-nurtured aspiration by founder Juliana to open her own cafe in collaboration with her brother & close friends.

Now, they’ve opened their own venue in Sri Petaling, with a well-curated selection that strives to lure patrons from both within & beyond this neighbourhood.

15. Pink Belly at Bangsar
Bangsar’s Lorong Kurau has long been best known for F&B outlets that promise chappati or cendol, coffee or cocktails, but this new venue could change that, specialising in the meat of a cloven-hoofed creature that’s seldom sighted on this street.
Address: 1 Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

Stubborn Joe is no average-Joe cafe; founded by a husband-&-wife team who practise interior design & architecture, it’s a visual feast. Joe & Veronica have created a space with a striking sense of meticulousness, right from the sumptuously photogenic walls – one with a ‘no man is an island’ figurine-lined theme, facing another filled with black-&-white construction blueprints – to the ravishingly intricate floor tiles & the furnishing of a vintage family TV set, rotary phone & other heirlooms.
Address: Jalan PJU 1/42, No 21-1 Blk E1, Dataran Prima

The man behind Ales & Lagers has launched The Great Beer Bar in Damansara Uptown with a fresh set of collaborators – Kenn Hyn’s clear-eyed, full-hearted mission to propagate craft beers remains unmistakable in how he names his outlets, where the attraction rests in his no-nonsense approach to (possibly) great beer & (probably) good food.
