De Centum Mall Bangi 1957 Kopi + Makan Bangi Hangout Cafe

Looking for a place to hang out with your friends and families in Bangi, there is this new cafe, 1957 Kopi Makan at the De Centum Mall in Bangi.

1957 Kopi + Makan Cafe Address
De Centrum Mall, Jalan Ikram-Uniten
Kajang, Malaysia

At 1957 Kopi + Makan cafe, you will be greeted with a modern cafe setting. The cafe started more than 1 year ago with its menu featuring the local food such as the Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah and local favourites. Recently, they have included in the new menu, some western delights to offers its customer a more varied choice. We had the chance to taste out some of these western fares and some local favourite dishes.

Our review started with an order of the Nicoise Salad (RM12.90). A combo of potatoes stack with French Beans, Cherry Tomatoes, Black Olives and Smoked Salmon with a vinegarette dressing topped with a Poached Egg.

After which, we sampled the Big Breakfast Set (RM28.90). A complete breakfast set with a choice of eggs done to your style i.e. Sunny side up, poached or scrambled. The Set also comes with sausage, baked beans, grilled tomatoes and a choice of chicken ham or beef bacon. Every order of the breakfast set comes with a glass of orange juice to complete a hearty breakfast. If you are a small eater, this Big breakfast can be had for 2 persons.

Moving along, we had the Chicken Chop (RM16.90). You can opt for 3 styles of cooking for your Chicken Chop which is the Hainan, Black Pepper or Mushroom sauce to go with your Chicken Chop. We had the Black Pepper style for our order. At 1957 Kopi + Makan, the sauce is not drenched on the Chop but instead serves separately, which is better especially for those that does not like it too saucy. We like the deep fried crisp to the chicken while the meat was still tender and succulent.

Our second mains was the Roasted Chicken (RM17.90). We really like this as the roasted chicken skin coupled with the creamy thyme sauce was perfectly matched out. Served with the accompaniments of mix potato and poached vegetables. Needless to say, we finish not only the chicken but the sauce as well.

1957 Kopi + Makan started off serving local dishes, so, we wanted to taste out one of its speciality dish which is the Nasi Kerabu Percik (RM15.90). This rice dish is served with cucumber pickled and raw sliced cabbages.

For snacks, we were strongly recommended with this Keropok Lekor (RM8.90) which was sourced directly from Terengganu. One of the main difference from the keropok lekor that we are familiar with its' tough chewy texture type. Incidentally, these type of keropok has been added with a voluminous amount of flour. But at 1957, these are very different as the inside texture is a soft type which has a stronger fish taste. It is truly a taste experience of a real Keropok Lekor as we were so used to the flour based type.

For desserts, we had a fusion Fried Banana Fritter aptly named as Pisang Special (RM5.90) which is topped with chocolate syrup and dashes of cheese to provide a milky taste to this dessert. Best eaten with an added scoop of vanilla ice cream that gives it a cool and hot feel to this special dessert.

Starting from March 1, 2017, to April 30, 2017, DoubleTree by Hilton Kuala Lumpur will be offering five Thai inspired promotions for everyone to savour. 

Absolute Thai Buffet Dinner at Makan Kitchen which start from 3 March – 30 April 2017 Monday till Sunday 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm is priced at RM135 nett per person.

Our tasting started with the 2 appetizer; the first of which is the Som Tam which is a
Thai Papaya Salad with dried shrimps, roasted peanuts & chili mixed with a lime dressing 

while the second one is a rather unique to a Thai dish which is Gung Che Num Pa. Raw prawns are usually associated to Japanese but here the Chef serves this Raw Tiger Prawns with a cold specially crafted Thai dip. Truly an experience to taste it. Went for a second and third helping.

You can't complete a Thai dining experience until you taste the Tom Yam Soup which the Chef has chosen the Fresh water prawn as the base ingredient. The selection of this is superb as the roe in this prawn when mix with the spicy sourish soup was excellent although it was a tad on the salty side for me.

For the night, we were served 3 specialty mains dishes; the first is the Pla Neung Manao which essentially a Steamed Seabass with fragrant lime broth served with Khao Suay Steamed Thai white rice. We like the balance taste slight of spicy and sourish taste of this dish. 

This is then followed by the Nam Tok which is Grilled Angus Beef with Thai salad.

Our last main to taste was the Gang Kiew Wan Gai which is Thai green curry chicken. There were this pebbles like ingredient which we thought was the green peas but it was a mini brinjal which has a slight bitter taste to it.  

For the vegetables, the chef has cooked up the Rau Muong Xao Mam Tom which is also a Malaysian popular dish; Kang Kong with chilli & shrimp paste. I particular like this dish as the shrimp paste was not salty and has a distinct flavour in it.

For dessert, you can't missed out on the Khao Nieaw Mamuang which essentially is the Mango sticky rice.

and the Sangkaya Fukthong - Pumpkin custard

and finally the Tub Tim Krob i.e. Red Ruby & Jack fruit in coconut milk

The above is the special dishes that was cooked up for us to taste but there are many other Thai and local dishes (more than 80 dishes) for you to taste out for this buffet dinner spread.
