Softcore delivers what its name suggests, dishing out an intriguingly diverse range of lava cakes with molten centres. This is one of Bandar Sunway’s brightest, most cheerful & promising new cafes, helmed by chef Tommy, Gerald & Sham, a young & enthusiastic team whose resumes include stints at respected Singapore-based outlets like Brussels Sprouts & Original Sin.

White Choc Cake with Passion Fruit Jam, Berry Coulis & House-Made Ice Cream

Softcore’s distinctive desserts seem set to flow uninhibitedly all over social media – you’ll find elegantly plated molten cakes (made with Callebaut Belgian chocolate) with a variety of fillings & accompaniments, like this white choc cake with passion fruit jam, berry coulis & house-made ice cream (usually vanilla, but the cafe had run out of that flavour when we visited). For a surprisingly low price of RM13 nett, it’s worth trying – eat the cake together with the fruits for more nuanced flavours & textures.

Matcha & White Chocolate Cake with Candied Calamansi, Red Bean Paste & Ice Cream

Other temptations include a matcha & white chocolate cake with candied calamansi, red bean paste & ice cream (RM15; also eat the cake with the accompaniments for best effect), plus cakes with peanut butter & filo banana fritter, or with salted caramel, popcorn & butterscotch, or with dark chocolate & cherry jam. Tommy’s still tweaking some of the recipes to produce more playful dynamics, & of course, he also plans to steadily introduce other cakes (a salted egg yolk filling is in the works).

Savouries

Encouragingly, Softcore also serves enjoyable savouries – we like this grilled cheese sandwich that’s bountifully packed with tender, tasty cubes of pan-fried marinated chicken breast, balanced with a creamy mix of egg whites, coriander & sriracha mayo for a subtle spiciness – all in crusty kitchen-made toast bread for a satisfying meal served with a salad & fries for RM19. Other grilled cheese sandwiches here include fillings of braised beef brisket or scrambled eggs & button mushrooms.

Parmesan Creme Brulee

Also set to be a signature Softcore success: Parmesan creme brulee (RM11), a version that targets cheese fans, tinged with thyme & a base of caramelised onions for a sweetness that complements the cheese’s naturally mellow saltiness. Wash down with cold brew coffee (RM15, served with ice cream), milkshakes, tea or complimentary cucumber-citrus water.
