#3 Tanuki By Crustz
Crustz followers are no stranger to this new addition in the dessert scene! With Xiao focused on delicate pastries, Tanuki is focused purely on Ice-creams cakes with a little bit of booze for those interested! Elegant on the plate and rich on the palate, the fruity Triscoop combining raspberry sorbet, raspberry yogurt and mango ice cream sandwiched between two waffle biscuits is a great start to double up the joy.
#4 Tommy Thongchai
Pairing Thai and Japanese flavors together, Tommy Thongchai being a pet-friendly cafe (time to bring the pets during cafe bounds)serves us some of the ultimate spiced up version of OG Katsu known better here as Thongchai’s Tonkatsu Curry comes with a crispy pork cutlet crispy on the onside yet tender on the inside served with Thai jasmine rice and Thai curry, aromatic to the senses and creamy to the palates hitting every right spot possible!

#5 Sunbather Coffee
More of a sandwich kinda person? Bookmark this newbie at Bangsar South for brunch this weekend and get your hands messy with their Ajitsuke Tamago Sando, a funky Japanese Affair of a sandwich filled with 3 large eggs, cabbage, tomato, cheese, wasabi mayo and furikake in a dark rye bread. Trust this one to fill you up for day ahead. While you’re at it, sip on the Cold Brew Black to caffeine you up with sweet berry notes tingling the tastebuds.
#6 Road to Emmaus
2019 is all about good vibes and Road to Emmaus nestled among the ferns and greens is out here for you to snuggle at with a book in your hand. When you feeling a snack, ease into a comforting plate of Avocado Pesto Toast melding herby pesto, savoury sundried tomatoes and creamy mashed Avocado on a fluffy white bread while sipping on the Nutty Flat White representing Christmas in a cup! 40 more weeks to go.
