Avenue 1 Café (留香)

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

As we’ve mentioned before, there are many new restaurants popping out in the Kuchai Maju area. So here we are again, looking for new place to dine in.

Parking can really be a problem here, we were so lucky to found a parking right in front of this café. We didn’t know why but this café did not look like a restaurant to us.

Anyway, the concept of the restaurant was similar to Hailam Kopitiam, Kafe Kopi Town, Old Town White Coffee and etc. We didn’t realise that until we went in and saw the interior of the restaurant.

We ordered a set meal for RM9.80 which comes with a main course, a drink and a dessert. We were given a choice of jasmine tea or sour plum ice (酸梅冰). We had an iced sour plum which was the drink on the right. It tasted as artificial as it looks, we didn’t like the taste of it. We also tried their ice white milk tea (奶茶冰) for RM3.50 which was rather tasteless as it lacked the sense of tea.

Fortunately, the food made things up. We tried their specialty which was this Satay bihun (风味沙爹米粉) for RM6.80. The presentation of this dish was nice and neat. The rice vermicelli which was mixed with the satay sauce tasted good as the crushed peanuts went well with the slightly sweet satay sauce. The chicken tasted good too, it was sweet and tender and even better when dipped in the satay sauce.

This is our tomyam fish head mee hoon (东炎鱼头米粉) which was part of the set meal. The soup was spicy, sour and aromatic. They even added yam into the soup which seemed quite new to us. A generous serving of fresh fish head was served too! It was quite tasty overall.

Finally, a nice scoop of chocolate ice-cream ended our satisfying lunch.

Service was quite average and the menu was not organised. The good thing about them is that they serve a wide variety of food which includes different types of toasts, special snacks such as grilled seafood ota-ota (烤海鲜乌达) and desserts such as blueberry and marble cheesecake. Also, this café do not charge customers for government tax and service charge. Quite worth to give this place a try!

Big Boys Oven, yeah, there are a lot of eateries around that area!

Fween, we read your blog, nice and interesting! We are Japanese food lovers!

Kakaka…ridiculous. I went to that part of Kuchai twice in the past 2 weeks. Each time I managed to find a spot to park not more than 5-8 cars away from the place where I ate. Hmmm…your first picture is a staged one!!!! :O

Squall, yeah, it is very hard to find a parking space there. The satay bihun is something new to try out.

Tankiasu, see, we told you! Haha! We really have problem finding a car park there. Next time when we want to eat there, we shall bring you along, then we can find parking easily! :)

Daphne, their satay bihun is quite special. Something new to try out!

Shell, it tasted quite average but if you like it you can try that out.

Mimi, it would be very disappointing if tomyam taste bland. Yeah, the satay bihun do taste good to us. Do check it out!

Ling239, we’re not familiar with restaurants in Sentul. Not sure but it might not be the same owner.

Simon Seow, haha, we didn’t think of that at all when we ate there.

Ai Wei, yeah, without taxes it really makes a difference. Anytime you’re free you can come over here to have lunch with me! :)

Christine, yeah, maybe you should come along with Ai Wei some time when you’re free! :)

Yammylicious, it was our first time trying out that too, it was really good. Do try it out next time!

Nic (khkl), is there any good satay mihun in Singapore? We wish we can go there for good food too. Yeah, we love the satay mihun!
