Charlie, Snoopy & the rest of the Peanuts gang have found a new home at KLCC, in the nick of time to spread the Yuletide cheer.
This is Malaysia's second Charlie Brown Cafe; the first opened at Penang's Straits Quay several months ago, while another may launch later at Puchong's Setiawalk.
We stuck to sweets for this visit, ordering treats _ like this Lucy-adorned New York Cheesecake _ topped with chocolate miniatures & hand-made artwork of Charles Schulz's characters.
Snoopy mango cheesecake. Notwithstanding their novelty value, the taste & texture of these cakes fall short of expectations. Blame it on a palpably gelatinous artifice.
Woodstock blueberry cheesecake. Each small slice costs RM9.50; Charlie Brown Cafe's prices seem steep, but perhaps justifiable considering KLCC's rental rates.
Charlie Brown tiramisu. My favorite Peanuts character _ though really, nearly everyone in the comic strip is lovable. Even Sally Brown.
Chocolate mousse, with a somewhat off-kilter flavor & strange graininess (though we liked its creamy top). Based on desserts, the cafe needs tons of work in the food department; still, its fun surroundings make it worth a visit.
