Review: Sweet Chat Café


Goshhhh it's gonna be a few more torturous month before the hot hot spell make a turn!!! Even when we were in a cool mall but our throats seem to get parched faster than usual. So to cool down, we went looking for a place that serves icy stuff and Sweet Chat Café came to mind that day.

If not mistaken, Sweet Chat Café started off in Jusco Metro Kepong. I was intrigued then to see this cafe joined together with The Chicken Rice Shop but it's a pity that the café was at the back portion where there is totally no human traffic at all. On closer look, the café was opened by the same owner of the chicken rice chain. Somehow it got shut down before I got a chance to try them out until I saw one at Mid Valley Megamall. We came here a few times but I never got the chance to take any pics until recently.

I took a look at the menu which is looking good now with expanded items especially the savoury portion which we have yet to try cos it never crosses our mind to come here for meals :p They seems to have added quite a number of local and localised desserts and dishes apart from the usual Hong Kong inspired ones.

I ordered a Mango Passion (RM7.50) drink that came with big chunks of grass jelly, mango puree and cubes, topped with shaved ice and soda water. I really really wish I could have one now! It's so hot that I'm melting. I loved the combinations with the shaved ice melting away, totally not sickly sweet.

My boiboi who loves anything soy bean picked a Soy Bean Jelly with Mango (RM6.50). The jelly is soft and smooth, almost tau foo far like but it's not that sweet, hence the mango puree and cubes played the role to sweeten the jelly up. A bit unusual but kinda refreshing.

The pretty predictable Capt'n Hook ordered their Durian Cendol (RM7.50) as he loves durian and when it arrived, both of us went "Waaahhh"... very sua ku horrr (country bumpkin)??? The portion was mountain tall!!! Best of all they did not stinge on the durian, just look at the huge lump on top. There were generous portion of cendol and kidney beans all over the shaved ice drizzled with the right amount of coconut milk and gula melaka syrup. It also has shiny large sago pearls!!! This has to be every durian lover's dream dessert.

The proprietor happened to be there that day and we gave her feedback of their overall improvement which she appreciated. We also told her their misses and she said they'll look into that. She kept thanking us for our support and feedback. Now, this is the kinda restaurateur we love and respect. Hopefully they could keep up with the good work.

I've been to Sweet Chat Cafe in Midvalley once, really long time ago when they started their business there. I remembering enjoyed their durian dessert, though I can't remember what exactly it is. Would go back for more.

Guys, becareful of that shop, because they didn't develired whatever promotion item as they promised!

When i read them the rule and regulation, they admitted they themselve didn't follow the rules they set, but still, continue with bad attitute.

When i decided to leave, without order anything, and tell them, "i will not come to this shop again", the supervisor said SHOCK TO ME, said that "SAYA TAK KISAH PUN".

Lousy service, promotion pun TIPU. DO NOT GO THIS SHOP AGAIN!

Babe_KL said...

;-) C&C me too!!!

good for you Sugar Bean

rachel, shld arrange one special day then

hand full of flour, one more week to go!!!

dear i am a tax payer,
i supposed it's their staff who is at the wrong. you should write in a formal complaint to the management so that they could look into them. there is no point venting your anger and asking ppl not to patronise the shop, when in the first place the management is not aware of such issue.
