The Shotlist, Sri Petaling

I do not know how many coffee specialist cafes are there in Klang Valley. For you infromation, Jalan Radin Bagus is the busiest street at Bandar Baru Sri Petaling. Just along Jalan Radin Bagus alone, there are more than 6 cafes that I have spotted.  The Shotlist is one of them.
To be different than other cafes, effort of serving an excellent coffee is no longer enough. Not a lot of people has the unique tongue to taste the different in coffee. To be different, it is highly depending on the variety and the quality of food served.
We had Honey Roasted Hazelnut Latte @RM12.90++ and Hot Toffee Nut @RM13.90++. The coffee taste is excellent and the other extra taste is just the syrup to reduce the bitterness of the coffee. For those who can't tolerate caffeine very well can give this a try.
Mushroom Soup @RM10.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Delicious creamy smooth soup with mushroom bits. Even kids who hates mushroom would love it. However, do not be deceived by the large looking plate. Actually the portion is just a ladle size only.

Goma Pasta @RM16.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The outlook can be deceiving because the sesame fragrant is immersing from the plate when you started to mix them around. You wouldn't able to imagine how the delightful is the taste to have it roam inside your mouth when you are taking the first bite of it. However, I thought this is a vegetarian dish because I can't find any meat in it.

Pork Belly Pasta @RM20.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5 
Overall: 3/5 - The pork belly looks more like a Chinese roasted pork. The taste is average and it just have a few pieces on the plate. The spaghetti is well cooked and that's all what is worth to mention about.

Teriyaki Don @RM21.90++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 2/5 - Below average. Near tasteless. Unimpressive to be classified as their signature.

Black Jamaica @RM15.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 5/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 4/5 - This is an alcoholic dessert. It is one of the best dessert I have tried so far this year. The rum flavor is strong enough to make you start to have a little imagination session with the seductive dessert. The dark chocolate is a good combination to pair with the rum. In conclusion, you have to order this dessert if you are an alcohol dessert lover like me.

Green Tea Ice Cream @RM9.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 -Their ice cream is homemade without sugar and preservative. The green tea taste is made from authentic green tea powder. It is not something kids will like because it is not sweet at all. The bitterness of the green tea flavor is overwhelming your whole mouth. Personally, I like it because it is healthy in a sense but not everyone's favourite.

Rum & Raisin @RM10.90++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - This is one of the best rum & raisin ice cream I ever had. Probably better than Haagen Dazs. It is also one of their homemade ice cream. I love the creamy smooth ice cream with a strong alcohol kick on your taste bud. Just I wanted it to be.

Overall, this cafe standout the most in my opinion in terms of their coffee, food and dessert. They have a better good all around food and beverage than any other competitors along the road.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
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

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.
