If Softcore’s Ramadan platter for two tastes as good as it looks, it’ll be worth the trip – expect coconut ginger pandan rice with house-made beef rendang, grilled peanut sauce chicken, otak-otak and galangal flower cucumber salad, accompanied by complimentary drinks and dates.

We’re intrigued by this Shah Alam café’s ice-blended beverage that mixes dates with oats, for what looks like a richly thick, nutrition-packed beverage that could even be half a meal on its own.
