Food Review: In House Cafe @ Sri Bahtera (Opposite Midah)

Yay! Finally a new cafe opened near my house =) My expectation are quite high cos I saw that the exterior and interior is quite nice. So I went to try try and below are my findings... Total disappointment!

If you come at night, you can sit on their deco antique car

The Bar

Nice Ambience

Beautiful art on menu

Love their table :p

Ham Sandwich + Omega Half Boiled Egg + Hong Kong Coffee (RM 5.90)

Kaya Butter Toast (RM 3.20)

Their kaya is green color, unlike Old Town that is in brown color

1 of the disasters: why glue 4 pieces of breads together???

Dry Wantan Mee with Curry Chicken (RM 9.90)
This is tasty but a bit too spicy for me.

Singaporean Fried Mee Hoon (RM 8.90)
Not bad too. Has the 'dai chow' taste.

Caramel Coffee (RM 4.90)

Cappuccino (RM 4.90)
Basically, the Cappuccino sucks. It's not real cappuccino. Maybe they can argue that HK styled Cappuccino is different but to me, it tastes like Coffee Bubble Milk Tea. And I just couldn't accept the big taste difference, I almost puke :(

Honey Milk (RM 3.90)

Service also sucks*. We pressed on the call button for a few times but the staffs just pretended they didn't hear anything and continue to pretend busy. Come on! There's only 2 occupied tables (including mine)! How busy can they be?? Sometimes the dish is already waiting to be served but none of the staff went to serve it to us. I definitely don't understand why still so many people come to yum cha on Friday nights and weekends. The only pro I found is, they are serving dim sums which other cafes and kopitiams did not provide.

There was another time, we were made to wait for almost 20 minutes for our egg toast. We were almost late to work so we asked them. Then only the waiter came and tell us they're out of eggs!!! WTF! Tell earlier ma! Tsk tsk tsk... I don't think I'll be going there again!

* Judgement is based on observation after at least 5 visits.

  1. The dried wantan mee looks good. For me, the spicier the better actually :)

  2. The food looks nice, but with that kind of service, I'm surprised you went there 5 times! I've also 'blacklisted' some places where the food was tasty but the service was down the drain. Can't be helped. :(
