Juicyfy Juice Bar at Damansara Uptown: Restaurant Review
(Damansara) Uptown funk gives us a new cafe to check out; Juicyfy, which serves cold-pressed juices (the Klang Valley’s current ‘it’ drink), smoothies, bread, waffles & gelato.
Juicyfy has nailed what’s certain to be a crowd-pleasing look, cheerfully colourful – expect to see the inspirational sayings on the walls here pop up a lot on your social media feeds in the months to come.
The highlight here are the cold-pressed juices, with 12 current variants with self-explanatory nicknames like Immunify, Beautify, Digestify, Heartify, Slimify, Youngify, Energify, Hidratify & Detoxify. Here’s our Vitalify, which features an interesting mix of lotus root & apple (RM10.50).
Beetify and A Good Gut
Beetify (RM11.90), comprising beetroot, Japanese cucumber & orange, alongside a Good Gut smoothie (RM9.90) with papaya, apple, ginger & yoghurt. The beverages taste wholesome, with discernibly low sugar. Other ingredients offered in the other juices here include everything from star fruit & dragon fruit to purple cabbage & broccoli.
Food-wise, Juicyfy’s most popular combo might prove to be buttermilk waffles topped with the cafe’s own ‘Happyfy’ gelato.
Enjoyable enough, though the waffle could be crispier on the outside; it might be meant to be airy within, but it feels a bit soft (but mercifully, not soggy, spongy or stodgy). The gelato comes in choices like pistachio, macadamia & dark chocolate, all of which could be smoother. The gelato is reputedly made with natural ingredients – no artificial flavouring, colouring or gelatin – but its flavours could be fine-tuned for a more satisfying fullness.
The preparation for this platter could be tweaked too – the egg in Juicyfy’s own-baked bread might fare better with a runny yolk. The potatoes on the side taste like a cross between a potato salad & mashed potatoes, which may not work for some patrons. Still, it’s clear that a lot of thought & work went into conceiving this menu, which showcases promise & potential.
