VCR Coffee & Cakes
VCR Coffee & Cakes is certainly one of more popular, hyped cafes in the vicinity of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Located at Jalan Galloway, it’s 5 minutes away from Berjaya Times Square. Tucked neatly around hostels & hotels, this cafe have attracted a lot of tourist as well as locals.
It’s very crowded during peak hours, especially brunch & lunch time. So do expect your order to be serve a little longer during these periods. It’s also quite hard to get a parking around the cafe, hence, if you can, carpool or Uber might be a better option when you visit this cafe.
Interior & Exterior
VCR Coffee & Cakes is a 2-storeys cafe and if you’re a smoker or prefer outdoor, you can opt to the 2nd floor outdoor area. It’s laid out with fake grass carpet. The entire cafe gave a contemporary, hipster feeling to it, dubbed as the little black house.
Upfront, you’ll be greeted with the reception counter and plenty of baristas seems to be really busy, preparing customer orders and brewing coffee. Coffee wise, I had an iced long black. It have a slight acidic taste towards the end and they should be using expensive Arabica beans, I assumed.
Food wise, it’s very Instagram-mable as it’s nicely presented with mix of vibrant colours to what you order. Not just looking nice, it taste amazing too. I ordered the Soft Shell Crab burger. The sesame bun is crispy and aromatic, laid with garlic tartar sauce. The pairing of sunny side up with the star of the dish, Soft Shell Crab is incomparable. Topping it off with seaweed bits, the entire taste of the burger is elevated nicely.
Next up, the Unagi Affair. Freshly grilled unagi with crispy, fluffy croissant and topped with Pomegranate seeds. It’s smoky with the taste of sweet and sour. Absolutely fantastic! If you’re looking for surprise gastronomic taste, then you definitely have to give this a try.
If you happen to be this area or travelling in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, definitely take some time to visit this cafe as their food & dishes are really different from others. I assure you’ll be surprise by it’s unique combination of ingredients and way of cooking.
