2015 Revisit: Seven Cups at Empire Damansara: Restaurant Review
It’s been nearly 18 months since we first visited Seven Cups in October 2013, back when Empire Damansara was empty, before this complex became a bustling building of cafes & boat noodles. Seven Cups itself has changed somewhat since then (Margaret Keane would now feel at home here), but it remains an inspiringly restorative haven with an authentic appeal.
Seven Cups maintains a clear-eyed commitment to coffee – you’ll find a carefully curated selection of beans sourced from time to time from roasters such as The Coffee Collective of Copenhagen & Monk Bodhi Dharma of Melbourne, though the mainstay is Singapore’s Nylon Coffee Roasters, carving out a compelling exploration of the bright & bold world of coffee.
Beverages to Beat the Heat
If you’re seeking spirited beverages to beat the heat, Seven Cups’ aged cold brew (RM12) & iced lime black brew (RM13) both hit some lively notes that may strike a chord with coffee enthusiasts who prefer their caffeine challengingly vibrant & untamed.
A similar sense of vitality & vivaciousness buoys Seven Cups’ recently introduced waffle selection, which partners the ubiquitous dessert with rich complements like Belgian semi-sweet choc mousse & strawberries macerated in balsamic vinegar (RM17), house-made lavender-infused blueberry compote (RM15), bananas with toasted almond flakes & fresh-ground coffee (RM16), or Ceylon cinnamon-infused sugar glaze with salted caramel ice cream (RM14).
We like the texture of these waffles – relatively fluffy, crisp but not crunchy, as natural-tasting as a waffle gets. In the months ahead, Seven Cups also plans to launch an intriguing customisable affogato menu, partnering coffee & Inside Scoop ice cream (in flavours like chocolate cookie dough & strawberry cheesecake, now all available here) with choices of sprinklings.
