15 New Things to Try in Klang Valley This Week

1. The Brew House Kuchai Lama

The Brew House can be said as one of the fastest growing restaurant chains in Malaysia. Established since 2017, it currently has 11 branches across Malaysia, but fret not, the chain hasn’t lost its sheen. Set in an industrial-style basement ambience, it might look like another booze and casual dining joint, but The Brew House doesn’t churn out a formula. It’s almost too cool and too affordable for the sharp-suited expense-account crowd and is still a cut above when it comes to deliciously crusted, smoky meats, herb-flecked flatbreads and jazzy boozes.

2. Chatto- Handcrafted Tea Bar SS15

It’s true to say that Chatto has reinvented tea for the Instagram generation. Really, though, their ombre-coloured milk tea the real eye-catcher. Operating since 2017, it’s shocking to say that they now have 21 branches across Malaysia. Upon stepping in, expect everything to be clean and minimal. And yes, provenance is the thing here- their ingredients are of Japan’s and Taiwan’s finest- purists, rejoice.

3. Extraction

Here’s a new brunch spot peddling the kinds of confections people dream about and is vowed to satisfy every size of sweet tooth- Extraction. We love how unpretentious everything is here- folks throw on their nice pair of jeans, or pairs of good earrings to indulge in their pastries. It’s also the perfect spot for breakfast as you can pick up freshly baked baguettes and sourdough bread.

It’s laid back atmosphere, sourdough toast, decent cakes and a cuppa all add to the charm.

The bubble tea culture has existed in the world for several years, but only a handful have survived the trend. Originated from Taiwan, OneZo is one of the boba chains which have never stop stealing the spotlight- they even had the honour of collaborating with NIKE, and invited the NBA Superstar, Kyrie Irving to visit their shop in Taiwan. Their tapioca pearls are made from scratch, and have that perfect and chewy texture, not too hard, but not soggy either. Definitely a great sweet tooth cure.
