Review: Hop Hop Rabbit Cafe at SS18 Subang
Here’s where cafe-hopping takes on a whole new meaning. It had to happen: The Klang Valley now has a rabbit cafe, where cake-&-coffee lovers can cuddle up to furry, carrot-chomping cuties.
Hop Hop, run by a cheerfully young & affable team, is split into a typical cafe space & a special grassy, glass-sealed room where several bunnies (nearly 10, for now) lie calmly in wait for the inevitable human invasion.
Note the house rules. Meanies will not be tolerated, so be as gentle as, well, a rabbit. Customers are also not supposed to bring food & beverages into the rabbit section.
Which will prove more popular: Rabbit cafes or cat cafes? We love Bugs, but we wonder whether we should bet on the felines.
Food isn’t an afterthought at Hop Hop; even if you’re not a fan of rabbits, it’s worth coming here for the cake selection, which ranges from a well-executed banoffee pie (RM7.50) …
… to this rich caramel peanut cake (RM10 per piece). Naturally, carrot cakes are available too (with cream cheese & walnuts).
Hop Hop’s interpretation of S’mores (RM15.50), served fresh & warm with Nutella, is a guilty pleasure.
Fries With Baked Cheese and Meat
Savoury fare is offered as well; know-it-alls will be anxious to point out that the Dog Bowl of fries topped with cheese & meat (RM10) is evocative of what a certain restaurant at Aman Suria serves. Pasta, wild mushroom soup & herb-crusted onion rings are among the other potential orders.
Sumatran, Ethiopian & Brazilian beans form the foundation for Hop Hop’s three-continental coffee blend.
Maybe we should request rabbit-themed latte art next time? Could be fun.
Wrapping up with Hop Hop’s Milo Milo, a mix of hot chocolate & coffee.
