Went to The Lawn again. Had the following:
2. Flat White
3. Banoffee Pie
4. Chicken Sandwich
This is no fluke. The Cappuccino is just as good as the previous visit. If fact, I feel it is even slightly better than the previous one.
Here’s the Flat White. Funnily, the Flat White is serve in a 6oz cup which is traditionally used for cappuccino. Cappuccino on the other hand is served in a 8oz cup. What you realise is that the terminology they use does not tell you anything. In fact, the Flat White is actually a real cappuccino without cocoa powder.
Cappuccino standard use by the World Barista Championship is served in a 6oz cup with NO cocoa powder.
How’s the Flat White? Good.
Rating: 6.8/10. (I would give a 7 if the coffee is fresher).
I have to admit, as of NOW, The Lawn serves the best coffee I’ve tried so far in a commercial settings in Malaysia.
Here’s the Banoffee Pie. Very nice. I guess I always like dessert made with bananas.
The Chicken Sandwich is decent too, though I find it expensive at RM 16.00. But it is a healthy piece of sandwich.
The Lawn is now officially my favourite coffee outlet. Nuff said.
I’m in KLCC now waiting for my wife. Sent her to some “Music Appreciation” session at Philharmonic. So, I dropped by this place… The Lawn, level 2.
The food here all look nice and healthy. It’s name “The Lawn” tells you that many things come in the colour green.
Ordered a cappuccino.
Wow! It is nice. They sprinkle some chocolate powder on to the coffee before pouring in the milk. The milk was nicely frothed and retained its natural sweetness. This is by far one of the best cappuccino I’ve tried in a Malaysia cafe.
Another surprising note is that they are using beans from Coffex. Obviously, with the higher traffic of customers in KLCC, the coffee beans does not sit long in the grinder and waiting to get stale. The end-result = better tasting coffee.
With the price of RM7.00, it is by far the better tasting coffee and best value for money in town.
New Additional Info:
Forgot to mentioned earlier, the extraction of the espresso is not so good. It was fast and watery. This is one very common mistake among cafes. The grind is not adjusted fine enough. Most of the time, I don’t see the espresso flowing down mousetail-like or flowing down like hot honey.
