Poco Homemade – Homemade Desserts & Art Craft Cafe (Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur) – Poco Homemade is a cafe located in Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, mainly selling daily western and Japanese-style of homemade desserts like cake. Besides, they do sell simple Japanese dishes like Curry Katsu, and some local-style lunch meal. On top of that, it’s also a art craft store, selling handmade cute collections.
The cafe is very unique and different from a typical kopitiam in Malaysia, or Starbucks. I went there with a few friends to check out the place for a project but later this place was rejected by the lecturer. Nevertheless, we did have a nice afternoon at there.
Located in the housing area of Bangsar, Poco Homemade looks different from others shop at the area. The blue color entrance looks so-not-like-Malaysia and upon entering, it felt very cozy, very warm and relaxing with nice French cafe music playing on the background.
The interior decor is very simple, with lots of art crafts decorations at every corner of the cafe and filled with retro second hand furniture. In there, I do not feel like I am in Malaysia, it’s like somewhere else, Taiwan, Japan, Northern Europe maybe.
There is a wall showcasing customer’s writeup on “My Ambition”, something that is usually done during primary school time for the first essay writing. The cafe some times used for workshop, and mini music session.
We were happy to chat with the kind owner, she said that she was inspired to open such cafe with her husband after visiting this kind of cafe in Japan.
We ordered some in-house special desserts to try out, price wise is not really cheap because of the small portion Every pax has to order a drink minimum which I don’t really like about this.
Dacquoise (Matcha flavour) (RM12), a kind of dessert cake from France made with layers of almond mergue and buttercream. Well it’s crunchy, and the mid part is creamy like ice cream. It’s not so crunchy like a biscuit, yet it’s just feel like another kind of biscuit to me. Very special, very nice, but not cheap for just only two pieces. Haha.
Well, the place is very enjoying and calm. It felt very peaceful and seems as if away from the busy city of Kuala Lumpur. You need not to travel to Northern Europe or Japan to experience this kind of cafe. =D
