Review: Friends Cafe @ Kepong

Friends Cafe

Back on New Year's eve, we went back to Kepong and Dad took us to Friends Cafe. Since it was still rather early, the place was pretty empty. I was quite skeptical but since my parents have been here numerous times, I guess they should be ok huh. My mom kept telling me to try one of their chu cheung fun (ccf, flat rice noodles) item, hmmm...

Whilst waiting for our orders, I noticed the lunch crowd slowly streaming in, wow... until it was quite occupied. Our drinks came first...

Capt'n Hook had a Teh C Special (RM2.20) which he gave it a slight stir before I managed to capture the layering effects. I took a sip and its nice. My Kedondong Juice with Sour Plum (RM2.80) was wonderfully refreshing whilst boiboi's Strawberry Smoothies (RM5.00) is the type which doesn't have milk in it.

Since Capt'n Hook had a late breakie so he ate the Double Kaya and Butter Toast (RM2.40).

My boiboi asked for Chu Cheong Fun With Bean Sauce (RM3.50) which has ccf, fish ball, beancurd skin (foo phei) and I think deep fried stuffed beancurd. The sauce was thickish and not overly salty. What I liked is there is addition of deep fried shallots on top.

Now this was the item that my mom asked me to try... Chu Cheung Fun with Peanut Butter and Bean Sauce (RM3.80), which basically consist of the same items as above with the exception of the sauce which has a combi of bean sauce and peanut butter sauce. Loved the extra peanut aroma here.

My dad had this bowl of Curry Mee (RM5.00) with blood cockles (see hum, add another RM0.50). I took a sip of the soup and find it's not too bad. My dad told me that previously they do not have see hum at all but I supposed there must have demands for them hence you get the option to add them in. For us, see hum is definitely a must in a bowl of curry mee.

I quite like the cafe here. I loved how they separate the smoking section at the outer part of the shoplot and keeping the inner aircon section away from the smoke. The food is good and the menu is extensive so we must return to try them all!
