thanks to the cousins, I was able to visit many Specialty Coffee shops which seems to be a trend in JB now!
It's like heaven for coffee lover like me :D
Let's start with the first one...
CESTINO Bakery and Bistro@ Taman Desa Tebrau
A company that specializes in desserts and produce their own coffee.
I was very impressed with the interior of the restaurant when I first stepped in, half of the shop is a dessert bar that showcases their wide range of sweet treats, from macaroons to cheesecakes and also their coffee bar just beside. Beautiful presentation. Then you move into the dining area, very spacious and cozy. Youngsters are sure to love this place to have catch-up sessions or just enjoy a nice afternoon in a quiet ambience.
The menu was a thick one LOL so much to choose from...Mainly western and Italian food and also their wide range of desserts and coffee.
Hazelnut Latte -- RM8.90
abit disappointed with this one, there wasn't must hazelnut scent...
but still there's a slight hazelnut flavor
the coffee seems to be more of a bitter and heavy flavor one, moderate acidity
Zack ordered an Iced Caramel Latte -- RM9.90
Aglio Olio Spaghetti -- RM12.90
Do love the texture of the pasta, and also the awesome flavor of tomatoes, mushrooms and herbs
But I wish it can be slightly spicier, just to enhance the flavor hehe
at this price, this is actually very worth it!
Zack's Grilled Chicken Leg -- RM15.90
recommended by the waiter (who's a friend of my cousin)
Big portion as you can see...
Quite tender meat with mild seasoning
Too bad our stomach weren't big enough to accomodate the desserts!! They have many flavors for macaroons and all of them look lovely!! After reading some reviews online, it seems we missed out lots of awesome desserts like creme brulee and tiramisu. Will definitely come back here next time.
Conclusion, great place to dine in with friends at an affordable price. Thumbs up!
