Sugar and spice and everything nice: Beyond cakes and cookies, Little Tee Cakes also serves savoury meals such as pastas and rice bowls.

We've ordered deliveries from Jeremy's Chicks many times, but it's worth visiting the cafe  - this is a cheerful, casually chic space in SS15 Subang with classic and contemporary features, spanning vintage-style tiles on the floor to modern neon-lit puns on the walls.

The Smokey BBQ Chicken (RM29.90) is a terrific set for two to share, strikingly presented with a smoky flourish, true to its name. Lift the lid on the meat, which retains a soft smokiness that complements its BBQ sweetness, served with rice, clear soup, soy sauce, ginger and chilli sauce, a complete chicken rice winner for lunch or dinner.

If you're a fan of time-honoured traditions, check out Jeremy’s Super Value meals, possibly the best bargain for chicken rice enthusiasts in this neighbourhood and beyond. 

Have it Poached (RM6.90), Roasted (RM6.90) or even both - a generous portion of gently poached or roasted chicken with aromatic rice and sauces for well under RM10 per plate.

Chicken also makes its way into another tantalising treat - it's surprising to see dim sum here, but Jeremy's Chicks does justice to this speciality. The most memorably eye-catching is the purple-hued Chicken Kerabu, plumply stuffed with minced chicken (RM9.90). while the Chicken & Prawn Siew Mai (RM9.90) and Har Gow (RM9.90) supply steaming-hot chicken-and-crustacean satisfaction, straight from the kitchen to the table.
