CLEO (Malaysia) - - @PLAY -

Matthew: “This café is fan­tas­tic for cou­ples look­ing to go on a fancy but rea­son­ably-priced din­ner date. You’ll earn ex­tra part­ner points, too, if your date loves food pho­tog­ra­phy be­cause, here, pre­sen­ta­tion is just as high a pri­or­ity as taste is. (Ser­vice is still quick, though!) “The chicken con­fit was my favourite, as the chicken was cooked sous-vide (although it was a lit­tle dry, it was still de­li­cious). If you en­joy a fra­grant ten­der teriyaki-grilled meat then you’ll want to try the ribs. Ev­ery dish on the menu was sat­is­fac­to­rily por­tioned for the price. The ro­man­tic vibe might even score you a fu­ture date!” Price: $$ Find Ba­con & Brews at 52M, Jalan SS21/58, Da­mansara Up­town, Petaling Jaya. Matthew: “Cof­fee lovers seek­ing an in­ti­mate, quiet spot will love this place. Its min­i­mal­is­tic setup, along with their ac­com­mo­dat­ing and friendly staff make this the ideal spot for first dates, es­pe­cially when you take in its de­lec­ta­ble menu. “We tried the flat white (brewed to per­fec­tion), long black (packs a punch, in a good way), and sugar-free choco­late sea salt cake (we al­most or­dered sec­onds!). “At the time of re­view, The Glass House served light snacks (fin­ger foods) and bev­er­ages, but that doesn’t take away the fact that it’s still a great pit stop be­fore you head to your ac­tual lunch or din­ner.” Price: $ Find The Glass House at Metropoli­tan Square, Jalan PJU 8/1, Da­mansara Per­dana, Petaling Jaya. Mina: “This cosy bak­ery tucked amid the crazi­ness of Bangsar is known for their pick-me-ups of sweet, but­tery good­ness. We were spoilt for choice, but we ended up choos­ing the lemon bar, sticky tof­fee pud­ding and rose­wa­ter pis­ta­chio cake. “Hands down, the lemon bars won – the sweet tangi­ness of the lemon curd and crum­bli­ness of the pas­try is quite the mar­i­tal bliss. The sticky tof­fee pud­ding’s a clas­sic that also doesn’t dis­ap­point. The am­bi­ence and staff made us feel at home. The per­fect spot for wind­ing down to­gether.” Price: $ Find Jaslyn Cakes at Lot7A, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur.
