Drizzle @ Cyberjaya

It might not be raining cafes in Cyberjaya, but Drizzle ensures this town won't endure a drought of Melbourne-style brunch fare such as smashed avocados with poached eggs on toast (RM17), in-vogue nutrition in the form of blueberry smoothie bowls (RM19), decadent desserts like a creamy chocolate-vanilla cake layered with salted caramel (RM14) & a pour-over of hot milk, splashing down on coffee ice cubes & smeared Nutella for a well-balanced beverage to beguile the young at heart (RM13.50). Brownie points for the Beatles-idolising soundtrack, with Eleanor Rigby & Penny Lane playing at 11am on one recent morning.

Dognvill Burgers @ Oslo, Norway

Oslo is a city that loves its burgers, with numerous patty-flipping joints across the capital - Dognvill ranks among the most recommended; the beef is sourced from Norwegian farms in Jaeren & ground in Stavanger, with topping combinations that range from pulled pork & dry-salted bacon to tallegio cheese with butter-&-balsamico-fried portobello mushroom & herbal mayo. If you can brave the heat, try the surprisingly spicy Sterke-Nils, crowned with sauteed habaneros, jalapenos, green chillies & double cheddar. Down with some 'Dirty Fries' & a St-Germain cocktail.

The Plated by Pinky Brothers @ IOI City Mall

The Plated showcases some fun ideas that represent a step up from the standard-issue fast food of a shopping mall, including East-West fusion concoctions like tortilla wraps stuffed with buttered deep-fried squid & curry leaves (RM19.90) & mantou-bun burgers sandwiched with Cajun-spiced char-grilled chicken breast (RM18.90); the caveat is that both recipes come burdened by a heavy reliance on cloying mayo-based sauces that seem to mainly target mass-market crowds.

Desserts & drinks emerge with a bit of visual flair, especially the competently executed tiramisu (RM15.90) & the creamy-frosty Brazilian lemonade (RM13.90). Plus points: Prices feel fair, the setting certainly has its charms, & service is friendly & efficient.
