    Hidden Cafe in Chinatown KL

    0

    Merchant’s Lane Kuala Lumpur offers a quiet getaway from the ever-bustling Chinatown KL, serving hand-crafted teas and coffees as well as fusion-style brunches and desserts. This hidden café is also a popular hangout spot amongst local youths due to its picture-perfect interior – think exposed ceilings, custom-made rattan furnishing, and wooden flooring paired with an array of colourful flower motifs, potted plants, and vintage knick-knacks.

    Available all day, Merchant’s Lane Kuala Lumpur specialises in international favourites with a distinctively Asian twist, including Italian chow mein (RM20) served with chicken rendang, pesto green curry pasta (RM20), and South China Sea (RM25), a hearty ensemble of grilled salmon, poached eggs, homemade hash, and salsa.

  • Drinks are priced between RM7 and RM15 here, ranging from classics such as long black, mocha, piccolo, and cappuccino to unique infusions such as jasmine black, caramel latte and cold-brewed earl grey latte. Our favourite is the rose honey milk (RM12), a honey-sweetened milk beverage that’s garnished with delicate rose petals and served in a while porcelain teacup.

    For dessert, Merchant’s Lane Kuala Lumpur serves a selection of cakes sourced from independent bakeries from the city. If you prefer something more substantial to satisfy your sweet tooth, try Better Than Sex (RM16), which comprises pandan-flavoured roti jala (net pancakes), melted cheese, kaya toast ice cream, and gula Melaka (palm sugar) drizzle.

    Set on the first floor of a traditional shophouse along Jalan Petaling, finding the café can be tricky due to the lack of signage; just look out for a stationary shop located next to the Advance Tertiery College building.
