Bites n Sips : PREGIO by Barista Caffe

Another post for this series. I posted one on last Monday, you can check it out here.

After church service yesterday, we had lunch at a restaurant that I don’t even remember what its name because I was super hungry and to our surprise there were live band inside the restaurant? Live band during daylight? That’s new for me and they were okay. But then it’s too loud with some kids screaming and crying while playing at the mini-playground inside the restaurant. So we left.

We decided to not going home yet but to find a nearby cafe to chill a bit. It was so hot yesterday so we thought we need to relax a little from being so stressful with the weather. And I found one nearby cafe with the help of Google. How? Just type “cafe near me…” HAHA! thanks Google lol.

I love the interior design and I actually calm a lot there yesterday. It’s not loud (thank God no cranky kids around that time) and there’s music being play in a very slow volume which I kind of like it that way.

We ordered Hot Chocolate RM10, Orange Juice RM9, and a slice of crepe cake RM12. No… I dislike crepe cake! I had migraine during that time so I just ordered anything when the waiter came since there’s no cakes written in the menu but I saw cakes being display on a shelf. Like the classic ordinary cakes. Aaah didn’t know they’re crepe cakes. So I didn’t even bother to ask what’s the name of the cake.

BUT, the crepe cake was acceptable though! Hehe. I don’t know how to explain the ingredients, but aside from chocolate flavor, it tasted like honey or perhaps maple syrup with some fresh cream. Sorry if that’s not true. Glad that my sister loves crepe cake and finished it all. Drinks were good too.

Would love to come back next time and to try out their other food either from the Italian or Western menu selection. I saw a couple on the next table were enjoying their pizza and it looks delicious!

Bites n Sips : Bunkers Cafe

The hot and dry weather is over now. It’s rainy season and all I wanna do is stay at home; eat and sleep. But not today. I’m feeling like eating something sweet and it’s been awhile since I posted something for this Bites n Sips series.

I went in to this cafe right on during lunchtime and everyone were enjoying their food but none of them ordered cake for lunch? lol. It’s okay. I’m really craving for at least a slice of cake and a hot drink.

I ordered Green Tea Latte (RM10) and Blue Velvet Cake (RM10). It’s my first time for the cake, but then it tastes just like the ordinary Red Velvet cake. I guess it’s just a first time for that colour for Velvet Cake. But it’s good tho’. Not too sweet, and just the right amount of cheese. Green Tea Latte tastes fine, not too strong. I’ve tasted the same drink at somewhere and it tasted like strong ‘spirulina’? But this one just nice. I keep sipping it till the very last drop. And for the cake, it’s so good! Maybe a little dry but not that much. I don’t expect too high whenever I visit a cafe, as long as it’s edible, I’m good. I remember when I just arrived this cafe, I saw there’s a slice of cake being left on the table, maybe eaten 1-2 scoops only. Hey it’s not that bad. Please don’t waste food, people!

For the interior, it’s simple with local Indie songs being played. It’s cozy and would love to come back here to taste their other menu. They served western and asian cuisine too. Check out their Instagram, they posted lots of scrumptious food and beverages!

For the record, I write this post while I’m here at this cafe! Perfect place for blogger hehe. Now I better go home. It’s been raining non-stop heavily since earlier and the last I thing I want is to be stuck driving in a flood.
