VCR Cafe, Pudu

Alright, my cafe hunting adventures continues...and this time I am at VCR Cafe which is located just next to Swiss Garden Residence, It is very obvious when they are the only one with the all black color. It is a place where old architecture meets the modern twist. Well, good things will never gets old especially it gives you the feeling like home.
This cafe has 2 levels. The space in the lower ground is very small and compact. If you are coming in a large group with 4 pax and more, you are advised to just head upstairs straightaway.
This cafe practice self service so you just order your food and drinks here before you look for a seat. Before that, if you are wondering where to park your car, here is the tip. Park inside the Swiss Garden Residence and get a chop from their counter before you leave to get a special parking rate at RM2.00 for the first 2 hours and RM1.00 for subsequent hour.
You need to help yourself for a cup of plain water or sugar for your coffee. 
They have a balcony upstairs if you are a smoker. However, this cafe is practicing non smoking in their premises. So you will not find any ashtray here.
I think I never introduce my boy to you all before. This is my baby boy, Lucas. My proud son with a thousand of expression on his face. Never get bored with it even a second.
We had Long Black @RM9.00++, Cappuccino @RM11.00++, Flat White @RM11.00++, Chocolate @RM13.00++ and Latte @RM12.00++. Their drinks are not cheap at all but you are paying for their quality.
VCR Big Breakfast @RM34.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 2/5 - It comes with either the choice of turkey ham or beef bacon. Others are home made stew beans, chicken chipolata, grilled tomatoes, mushroom friccasse and two eggs which you can choose either sunny side up or scrabble egg. The variety is splendid and definitely will make you skip your lunch. As for the taste, I would say it is what it is and nothing pretty outstanding to highlight about except their mushrooms with the scrumptious buttery fragrance. You would wish for someone to help out with other but you will definitely do not want to share the mushroom to anyone with you on that table.


Turkey Style Eggs @RM26.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Rich tomato sauce with chickpeas, chicken chipolata, spinach greek yoghurt, toasted pistachio with a slice of sourdough toast 63 degree Celsius. The egg you can choose either sunny side up or scramble egg. Quite complicated ingredients in this hot plate but it can be simplified by just "kacang putih" with egg on top of a slice of bread. It is a very creative approach by introducing what the Turkish used to have for their breakfast in Malaysia. It is another filling breakfast.


Granola @RM18.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is the combination of home made crunchy granola, sesonal fresh fruits and greek yoghurt oolong peach infused milk. Sometimes it doesn't have to be fancy or complicated to complete your breakfast. I wouldn't mind to have this granola everyday in the morning. I feel so healthy by the look of it. For your information, this is the cheapest breakfast among all.


French Toast @RM19.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - Fluffy brioche french toast with berries compote and crumbles and not to forget topping the delicious mocha sauce espresso based ice cream (no churn). A common french toast has brilliantly evolved into a whole new experience of french toast to me. I have nothing to be picky about the whole thing. The toast indeed is fluffy and soft which gently sink into your mouth. Mix some chocolate sauce or berries compote to pamper your taste bud. The best part among all is the ice cream which is very delicious. The light coffee taste in it is absolutely marvelous and unforgettable. 

Overall, I am really glad to find another outstanding cafe which is introduced to us with class. Highly recommended even you are just having a simple cup of coffee here. The price might be slightly on the high but since they are serving you the best quality of food and drinks that they can offer, we just have to give them some extra credit for the effort.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
