With three locations and counting across the Klang Valley, Lisette’s dishes out meals made from natural, organic ingredients where possible. While plenty on the menu is healthy and wholesome – think nasi lemak (coconut rice) made with black rice, chunky cauliflower soup and a spicy laksa noodle dish derived from konjac (a starchy root vegetable) – there’s also an indulgent cake and pastry selection that will satisfy anyone with a sweet tooth.
Kenny Hills Bakers
Ask locals about their favourite cafés in Kuala Lumpur and odds are Kenny Hills Bakers – which has six locations across the city – will feature on their list. Serving top-notch coffee, wood-fired pizzas, brunch classics, organic bread and delicious pastries, it’s a popular brunch hangout. Top food picks include the salted egg yolk pasta with smoked duck, the crabmeat and avocado salad, and the truffle mac and cheese.
With its stylish wood-clad interior and laid-back vibe, Elephant Republic in the trendy Bukit Bintang neighbourhood is the perfect place to while away a lazy afternoon. There’s plenty to graze on – menu highlights include a ham-and-cheese croissant sandwich and a smoked duck and mango pizza – but the real star of the show is the refreshing iced coconut latte, which is made with coconut milk and topped with coconut flakes.
