How are you getting on? Hopefully you always doing well wherever you are.
My last trip (under VTL, Vaccinated Travel Lane) to Kuala Lumpur, my cousin in Malaysia brought me to a stylish café which is located at Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur.
The restaurant was very distinctive and unique as the whole restaurant seems like using the original of the old shop lot interior, they didn’t complete the renovation as per usual, and used the existing wooden doors and windows to add character to the restaurant interior design. This restaurant called MINGLE CAFÉ.
Today let me introduce you this restaurant regarding the environment, interior design and also the food there.
The main entrance of café was decorated and planted with some green pots, some were hanging and some were planted on ground. The greenery plants was cooling and soften the main entrance of café.
The tropical planting selection such as Plumeria rubra, Tecoma stans, Lantana camara, Sanserviera trifasciata were planted clustery at main entrance. The plants grown bit chaotic and wildly which’s creating the unique and stylishness to the café.
On top of the signboard were fixed with stainless steel planters for placing the potted plants especially climbers, Cissus nodosa was planted drooping down from the planters.
The entry of restaurant has the QR code for scanning the attendance of customers due to Covid-19 safety measurement. After entering the café, I saw the crossbeam were exposing out without covered by the ceiling finishes.
There were many light fitting hanged over the existing crossbeams to bright up the whole interior of restaurant. Air-conditional pipes were exposing together with some other piping system on top of restaurant.
The wooden doors and windows fixed as partition for separating the kitchen and dining spaces which was characteristic. I like the brick walls of the restaurant as it brought the sense of nostalgic to the old time architectural design.
Let’s see what we had ordered:
I ordered the Spaghetti Pomodoro. It cost about RM24.00. The tomato sauce stirred with bailing mushrooms and garlic, and the added olive oil made the spaghetti quite appetizing.
My cousin ordered Nasi Ulam Ayam Percik, Rendang Grilled Chicken with Blue Flower Rice. It cost about RM27.00. The added side dishes included shredded coconut salad vege, salted egg, crispy prawn crackers and sambal chili.
The portion was quite big, actually can share in between adult and child. My relative can’t finish the whole set especially the grilled chicken, he gave another piece to his friend who accompanied us to visit the restaurant.
The last dish I ordered was Vegan Buddha Vege Salad. It cost about RM18.00. For me, it is tastier meal I tried in this restaurant. The veggie all fresh with the salad sauce which I didn’t know what the secret recipe to make the salad became very yummy, good matching to eat with the cookies.
Overall food price for this restaurant was quite high compared to other restaurants.
But it is not only the food choices or pricing, the interior design and environment also are the key factors for attracting people to enter the restaurants to enjoy the food.
