Stacks Sandwiches

ImageTasty Sandwiches that not just taste good but pretty healthy too.

Very few places serve good sandwiches. And I especially hated those that served BIg pieces of bread but SMALL tiny shreds of meat and filling. I really can’t go on all carbs diet. Finally someone who knows how to make sandwiches for meat eater who needs the apparent idea of a healthy meal.

Two of my favourites… Tuna Melt and Molten Grip.



Truly one of the best tuna sandwich in town. Lots of tuna mixed with sweet tiny chunks of apples and sultanas, add in cheddar cheese and lettuce, pair with a fresh cup of velvety cappuccino, a complete meal to me 😀


ImageHere is Molten Grip. I purposely took the first pic to show my other half how much vege I’m taking for my meal. No more eyes-rolling disapproval look.

Over-filled with chicken shreds, chicken ham, monterey cheese and lots of greens. Every bite a yummy bite. Head over to Stacks Sandwiches in Tropicana Mall for some real sandwiches.

Oh yes, they probably serves the best coffee in the mall too.


Coolest Cafe in Melaka

If you ever go to Melaka, you must not miss the coolest cafe in Melaka (probably in Malaysia). Mods Cafe = Cool. It is on the next parallel road of the main Jonker Street.

What you can see from the outside (and I don’t mean the girl)

It is a cafe you can visit when it is not mobile.

Machine, Vibiemme Lollo at the back of the van. Is this cool enough?

And who is cooler than the Barista himself?



Coffee on a trip

Whenever I go for local trip, one of the biggest problem is finding good coffee. Considering most hotels served horrible coffee, what would be better than to Do It Yourself, the Aeropress way. And on a recent trip, that’s exactly what I do. Of course, I’m travelling within Malaysia.

3 important stuff: Fresh roasted coffee, Aeropress and a decent hand-grinder.

Morning task: 14g fresh roasted coffee into my Hario Slim Grinder

Morning exercise… phew… 2 minutes of hardword 😀 (no say I no do exercise, ok)

Inverted method if my preference. Now, have your fresh boiled water ready. Since did not bring thermometer, I’ll let the water sit for 30 seconds. (it was too hot, should let it sit for 45 seconds at least). Using the Aeropress the Inverted method allows for better control of the variables especially steeping time. And it looks cooler too 😀

Steep for 80 seconds. Reverse over and press down gently.

There you go. As good as it can get.

Vibiemme Replica Multi Boiler

The long awaited machine has finally arrived.
For cafe or restaurant expecting top quality espresso coffee production, the Vibiemme Replica Multi Boiler machine offers the perfect solution. Asthetically designed, Performance driven and espresso “deliciously” extracts.

  • Genuine E61 Group head
    For those of us who loves our espresso know that not ALL E61 machines are created equal. Vibiemme is a company that reached back to the orignal creator to the famed E61 groud head design.
  • Independent boiler for each group
    Temperature profile & stability are two of the key elements in brewing coffee, especially when making espresso. Different brewing temperature can be set to each group via the LCD control panel in front. No need to fiddle about trying to access the interior of the machine.
    Steam Boiler: 9 litre
    Brew Boiler: 0.5 litre x 2
  • PID – Proportional–integral–derivative controllers
    Detail stuff below but in a nut shell… a PID controller enables the temperatures set in the group head to be maintained in a certain range of degree. Assume you set the brewing temperature at 92 Celsius, the PID will do its work to maintain the temperature fluctuation  to say “91 to 93” degree. Yes, in our universe, maintaining thermal stabilty is one of the hardest thing to do in an open working environment.
    Explanation of PID:
  • Programmable Pre-infusion for each group
    Some people swears by Pre-infusion. Now you can play with them.
  • Pre-heating exchanger for brew boiler
    Another design to maintain thermal stability. (Told you they were important didn’t I)

One big steam boiler and 2 independent boilers for each group head.
