Coconut House @ Jaya One

The Coconut House brand carries a long history, born in Malacca, then branching out to Pudu before closing there, reopening in PJ's 3 Two Square, closing again & resurfacing in Taman Desa as Casa Del Cocco.

But the original owner has broken ties with that final outlet & revived Coconut House this month at a new location, Jaya One, complete with the wood-fire pizza & famously cheap porky fare synonymous with every incarnation of this restaurant.

Coming in at under RM20: Penne with pleasantly coarse pork sausages, parmesan, rosemary, tomatoes & garlic. Tastes homemade (a compliment).

Only RM10: herb-laced pork patty with own-made foccacia. There's a rustic feel to the food here; honest, well-prepared fare, worth checking out.


All the other familiar Coconut House classics remain available at this latest branch, from savories like pork-&-rocket-salad pizza & slow-roasted pork shoulder to sweets like red wine-baked pear & coffee mousse with ice cream.


 Bonus stop: Strolling over to The Bee, also at Jaya One, for The Last Polka's current creations.


The latest flavors unveiled: Vanilla bean, alongside brown butter & almond.


Folks attending Urbanscapes, try what The Last Polka concocted for this weekend's festivities: Choc chip cookies sandwiching Gula Melaka ice cream (nibble them while watching Sigur Ros). Also available for now at Artisan RoastSimply Mel's & Fierce Curry House.

  2. Coconut House! I am hoping the slow roasted pork shoulder is much better than Casa Del Cocco that seems a wee inconsistent with its food quality these days.

    1. Missyblurkit: i wonder if the apparent split between casa del cocco and one of its original founders might have resulted in the current inconsistency that you mentioned. But hopefully that inconsistency will be repaired, ya =)

  3. Ok...pretty usual stuff here. Saving grace, the food's not expensive. Wouldn't mind trying those Last Polka sweet delights though - at least, they try to be different.

  5. I know what you mean by home made. I really love the raw, sort of messy and casualness of home made food. Just like how I prepare my own food! :)
