Secret 009 Kalacs at Publika: Bakery Review
Hungarian “chimney cakes,” a traditional pastry born in Transylvannia and known in the Slavic languages as “kurtos kalacs,” is the carb-heavy highlight of this new little cafe in Publika, headed by a Hungarian baker.
Baked Fresh On-Site
Kalacs are made fresh here; many businesses in Hungary supposedly have their own secret recipes to make theirs better than their rivals’ renditions. That holds true for this KL outlet too, which explains the name “Secret 009 Kalacs.”

Dreams of Hungarian Dining
Let’s hope the owners of Secret 009 Kalacs harbor secret ambitions of opening a full-fledged Hungarian restaurant in KL someday, one that serves hearty Goulash stews, Dobos cakes and Palinka fruit brandies.
