The Art Coffee Menu

The Art Coffee Sunway Giza has just opened its doors about four months ago and have just revamped some of its dishes.


To start off our meal here, we have a Garden Salad with Beef Bacon (RM10.90 +RM5.00). At the Art Coffee, you can order a basic salad and then add on any of your favourite ingredient which are Beef Bacon, Smoked Chicken or Smoked Salmon; ours came with Beef Bacon. The sauce that came with the Salad is the Garlic Aioli sauce which is in-house made and have the right taste that blended with the refreshing salad.


We found that one of the popular items to be ordered here is the sandwiches, our order of sandwich is the Cheezy Turkey Slice (RM14.90) which is loaded with tomatoes, lettuce, onions, cheese and turkey slice. This ingredient is sandwiched with an in-house made Ciabatta bread which has a very nice texture. It is also served with a special sauce which you can spread on the sandwich.


Next, we had 2 pizza, which the first is a 6" (Small) Hawaiian Mojo Pizza (RM15.90) which is topped with pineapples, chicken meat and condiments.


the second pizza is the 10" (Regular) Pepper Pepperoni Pizza (RM20.90). These pizzas are prepared using a Freeze Blasting Technology to retains the natural texture and taste of the ingredient.


To enjoy your cuppa of specially brewed coffee you can order some of the pastries items. Among the notable is the Strawberry Berliner (RM4.00) which is a doughnut with strawberries filling. The texture of the dough has a soft texture. You can request to have your Berliner either served chill or hot.


Our order of the other pastries includes the Apple Cinnamon Strudels (RM2.90), Sultana Danish (RM2.90) and the Chicken Curry Puff (RM2.90) which has a very flaky and crisp dough which we like.


Or you could order their Chicken Pie (RM13.90) which is filled with potatoes, corn, carrots and chicken meat. Best to be eaten when it is still piping hot.


Lastly, you can opt to finish your meals with some sweet offering of the Les Petit-Clair  (RM3.50).

For the coffee beans, at The Art Coffee, every month you get to taste a different blend of beans. The current blend which is used to brew our coffee; is a mix blend of  made out of 80% Brazil origin and 20% Indian origin which extrudes a nutty sweet flavour.

The concept of changing the blend is to provide coffee enthusiast, the opportunity to try out the different offering on a monthly basis.


This will cultivate the art of tasting the different blend and also not a have a familiar taste day in day out.

Cheras Food: Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe Ikon Connaught - Your Japanese Neighbourhood Bakery Review


Japanese have perfected the fine art in terms of creating nice bakery and pastries; as can be seen by the many Japanese inspired bakery cum restaurant in the Klang Valley. With that +BestRestaurant ToEat was invited to taste out one of the latest bakery produce from Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe located at G-08, IKON Connaught, Jalan Cerdas, Taman Connaught, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur


What makes Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe different is the type of flour that is used to prepare the dough? The flour that is used at Haru Bakery is the High Protein Flour which are imported from Japan.


Using the right technique to prepare the bread dough will determine the fluffiness, soft and moist texture of each buns. There are many flavors of bun that are served at Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe and the following are the one that we tasted.


The first is the Amazing Chestnut Bun (RM3.80).  For chestnut fans, you will find the filling very nutty. Nice to be eaten with a cup of coffee.


Next is the Butter Croissant (RM 3.80). For those that love their croissant to be less buttery, you will find this just nice for you. It has that crisp layers and fluffiness texture.


Caramelised Apple Bun (RM 3.40). Balance of sweetness of caramelized apple filling with the soft sweet bun texture. 


The above is the Cranberry Cheese Bun (RM3.60). 


Fruity Red Bean Banana. This bun is banana flavoured with a red bean paste filling. 


Mexico Cheese Bun. This is a fusion of the popular Mexico bun but with a topping of walnut and almond chips.


The above bun is called the Mini Pizza (RM 5.90). Why this bun is called the mini pizza is because the fillings of this bun are tomatoes, sausages, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and topped with a sliced cheese are all the ingredient that made up a pizza.


Spring Lady (RM 3.80) has spring onions, cheese, mayonnaise and ham as its filling.


Japanese Curry Onigiri (RM 3.40). A fusion bun which consists of bonito flakes, mayonnaise and seaweed on top of the bun with a Japanese curry sauce.


For non bun lovers or you would like a more savoury meals at Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe, you can try out the Squid Ink Pasta (RM16.80). This pasta has a light touch of squid ink although I would have prefered a stronger dose of squid ink for this dish.


The other pasta which we tasted was the Wafu Mentai Spaghetti (RM14.80). Loves the ebiko topping on the light wafu sauce. 


For sweet tooth fans, the Go Banana (RM 15.50) dessert is your dream dessert.  Served on a special Haraju Toast topped with slices of cut bananas, a scoop of ice-cream and Chantilly cream drizzled with chocolate sauce.


While the Mary Berry (RM 18.50) is topped with mixed berries, Chantilly cream, vanilla ice cream plus some sweet mixed berries and raspberry sauce was the perfect end to our food review.
