Lepaq Lepaq Jalan Ceylon
There is one picture which caught our attention recently in Facebook. It is the Rainy Day Coffee from Lepaq Lepaq in Jalan Ceylon. It looks like a gigantic cloud on top of the coffee.
So apparently this is a new restaurant in Jalan Ceylon or Ceylon Road near Ceylon Hill. It is a two storey bungalow converted restaurant. Somehow the Google Map brought me to the hill while the restaurant is on the main road. You have been warned.
This is the building and there are parking spaces in front and at the back of the restaurant. The seating is on the second floor while the first floor is the bakery and the open kitchen.
The restaurant is beautifully designed, gray in colour and it is spacious and the crowd is still manageable. There were many youngsters in the restaurant and ordered the same Rainy Day Coffee we saw from Facebook. Social media is real, Facebook do brings in customer.
There is a smoking section and non smoking section. The non smoking section comes with the green view of the Ceylon Hill’s last couple of trees. It is a breath taking nonetheless and it is hard to believe you still can find view like this in the heart of Kuala Lumpur.
I ordered the same Rainy Day Coffee (RM 13) like the rest. It is hard to subdue my “kiasu-ness” as I drove all my way here for that Rainy Day Coffee.
It is a piece of art you ask me.
The Rainy Day Coffee comes with a huge cotton candy ball on top of the coffee. I have forgotten what you can the thing to hold the cotton ball on top of the coffee as I used to play it during my science classes.
The cotton candy ball looks like a huge cloud on top of the coffee. The heat of the coffee will melt the cotton candy and it will drips into the coffee.
The process takes quite a while but you won’t mind looking at the drip like snow falling down from the tree. The coffee is slightly acidic for my liking but I love the gimmick.
While waiting for the cotton candy to melt, I also ordered their signature Nasi Lemak Cheesecake. You read it right, it is Nasi Lemak Cheesecake (RM 15). This is one of the most unique cheesecakes I ever tasted. They called it nasi lemak because it tastes like nasi lemak. This cake is made off cheese, glutinous rice and peanuts, cucumber gelatin and topped it with deep fried anchovies and sambal with base of biscuits. The taste of the cheese is quite subtle. You can find different textures in this cake, such as the glutinous rice and the crunchy peanuts and deep fried anchovies and the sambal gives a little kick in the taste palette. I enjoyed it actually and I thought it was a brilliant creation.
We will come back for their food for sure. Don’t have high expectation on the taste of the Rainy Day Coffee, just enjoy the show. Nasi Lemak Cheesecake is definitely a must order. Do comment if you have any opinions on this place. Thank you.
