Solaris Dutamas’ popular cafe has emerged with an engaging selection of specials for Ramadan – feast on squid ink pasta with with laksa consommé, baked yabby and bunga kantan ‘caviar’ or roasted spring chicken with lime leaf rice, tempe fries and house-made sambal, washed down with a highly notable curiosity – a nasi lemak ice latte comprising pandan milk with santan, gula Melaka, lemongrass and a hint of cili padi.
2. LOKL Coffee Co, Jalan Tun HS Lee

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.

Bowery Petit is showcasing special set menus that can be tailored to different budgets and preferences, with chef-recommended temptations like Za’atar Lamb with Couscous Tabbouleh Salad.
8. Food Tree Factory, Puchong
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.
