Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food
Around two months ago, we met up and celebrated one of our best friend’s birthday in Poco Homemade, Bangsar. Although one of us lives in Bangsar, we have never been to this place until then.
The family-run establishment was clean, bright and comfortable. Other than food, the restaurant displays and sells a number of handmade craft and sewing. There were a number of lovely artworks, sketches and clothes which decorated the restaurant.
When our friends arrived, we placed our orders. We ordered a cup of warm Soy Green Tea for RM5. The soy green tea was excellent. It was sweet but not too overwhelming, healthy and flavourful with soy milk taste. It was so good that we ordered another one.
Poco’s menu was rather limited, however, they focused on serving healthy and simple Japanese meals which we thought was nice and homely. Since there were five of us in total, we ordered food to share. We had their Chicken Roll for RM11.80. It was a nice and simple snack to begin the meal.
We also had a Chicken Katsu Curry Don with Miso Soup for RM14.80. The curry wasn’t spicy and it was nice and fragrant, best when eaten with white rice. The chicken katsu was deep fried until golden brown, very crispy and delicious and also not too oily.
We were intrigued by their Homemade Tofu Cake and decided to order one. Priced at RM8, I loved the cake, it was soft and smooth, light and melts in your mouth. However, my better half preferred it to be sweeter.
Overall we enjoyed dining in Poco Homemade a lot. If you’re looking for a place where you can sit back and relax with simple and healthy homemade food, this would be the right place for you!
