the contrasting textures- brittle hot burnt sugar and cold creamy custard @ Aku Cafe.
I took the half day off as I have a lunch date with Sarah on Friday afternoon. She had just finished her exams and hopefully will be joining the working force soon, another stage of her adult life.
We meet and went for lunch at a highly rated and 4**** reviews cafe in Jalan Tun H.S. Lee (nearby the Petaling Street) nearby the Indian Temple. However, we were rather disappointed with the service of the staff and the oily food, lessons learnt never believe all the reviews!
We wanted to see the Half Man Half Ghost Poster exhibition at Aku Cafe & Gallery in conjunction with the show The Coffin is too Big for the Hole.
The show was choreographed by Malaysia popular Butoh dancer Lee Swee Keong (who also happened to be our yoga instructor). The “Half Man, Half Ghost- a poster exhibition featuring all his shows, various graphic designers and calligraphy at the Aku Café & Gallery from 14/8/2015 to 1/9/2015. Don’t miss this chance to view those posters as it will give you an glimpse of enchanting and mystical shows that had taken place before.
The cafe is located on the 1st floor of the shophouses along Jalan Panggong, nearby Petaling Street.
The lunchtime hour was just over when we reached and the place was settling down quietly.
a cosy corner to relax with books..

Wonder whether that cake display unit works.

Looking suntan after her Krabi trip
Perfect afternoon teatime..
Actually the café also serve set lunch from Tuesdays to Friday (close on Monday). They serve good pour-over and siphon coffee (no coffee machine here). The barista and staff were so friendly too. Definitely the place to come back again.
