Caffe Gino @ Isetan

Shoppers navigating through KLCC's Isetan Foodmarket might want to seek a caffeine buzz at this gourmet coffee specialist, opened by Japanese master roaster Kiyohisa Fugino.

Caffe latte, an elegant blend with a soft, clean finish. Fugino, nicknamed the "artist of aroma," claims to use top-tier coffee beans acquired at international auctions for his concoctions.

Matcha cappuccino, milky & smooth, with a deep-bodied flavor that is supposed to characterize green tea from the town of Uji in Kyoto.

And after that pick-me-up, stroll through the rest of this sprawling supermarket for groceries & takeaway snacks, including sushi, donburi, yakitori & okonomiyaki.

Caffe Gino,
Isetan Food Market, Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur.

  2. Ulric: got stools and a long table, and also additional seating near the nearby sushi sales section. I'm guessing that as long as you buy some coffee, they'd be ok for you to drink it here with the supermarket snacks =)

  5. I'm hoping Isetan opens a food outlet/supermarket in The Gardens too. KLCC is too troublesome for me.
