Soft Launch Cafe & Desserts, Sri Petaling

Another cafe is opened at Sri Petaling which is known as Soft Launch Cafe & Desserts. This cafe is opened at the First Floor to enjoy lower rental fee. In order to make themselves notable to the public, they did invited the media to help them to promote them.
The cafe is just occupied a single shop lot but the moment I stepped in this cafe, it looks bigger than I thought it should be. They even divided the cafe into smoking area and non-smoking area.
The food selection is not a lot and mostly pasta which is simple and you do not need a large kitchen to prepare it. The kitchen has been shrunken to put more tables and that's why the cafe looks bigger than usual.
Cafe Latte @RM10.00. Fair price but unfortunately they over roasted the beans. It is a dark roast bean. I am really surprised that this cafe is trying to show to us that they are specialized in coffee making (they even have drip coffee) but have chose a dark roast coffee to serve to their customers. That's only Starbucks would do. They should know dark roast bean is not the best bean to make a cup of coffee. I am truly disappointed.
Matcha Latte @RM11.00 - This is better but a little too sweet towards the end. It is because of the sweet syrup. I would prefer a matcha that is without any sugar in it so you would taste the rich matcha aroma in it.
Chocolate Waffle @RM16.00 - Besides coffee, another signature is their soft serve ice cream. Their soft serve was quite good but just that it is only comes with limited two flavors which are chocolate and pistachio. As for the waffle, it was quite hard. They are trying to make it crispy but I was like cutting through a brick with my knife.
Nyonya Laksa (Vermicelli) @RM22.00

Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It might looks a little disoriented but I can assured you that the taste is superb! The mix of Malaysian laksa flavor into a western's pasta is truly a brilliant idea. Add a little lemon on them will enticed the entire laksa flavor in it. 

Overall, it was an upset because their coffee is not up to standard. Hopefully they will do something about their coffee, improve their waffle and add varieties on their soft serve. If they do not have enough machines to provide different kind of tastes, they always can have 2 different flavors each day for 7 days which means a total of 14 different tastes. I would like to revisit them everyday to try every each one of the taste if they do that!

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
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.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

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.
