Khai & Rony Recipe @ Telawi, Bangsar

Checking out a couple of cafes that seem suited for Telawi teatime treats, starting with Khai, which serves as both fashion boutique & sweets shop.

Khai's intimate, low-light ambiance & eye-catching furnishing make it an interesting hideaway, a calm & easy retreat from Bangsar's bustling streets.

Khai's desserts are the low-guilt sort, ensuring that customers can have their cake & still squeeze into a slim-fit outfit. Try the house special: almond-topped chocolate cake (RM14.80), made with gluten-free flour & no added sugar.

Organic peanut butter & banana smoothie (RM13.80), alongside another with fresh spinach & fruits blended with low-fat yogurt & milk (RM15.80).

 Only a few steps away from Khai, here's a look at Rony Recipe (which has no signboard so far, due to DBKL red-tape). It's a small but bright & welcoming space.

 Have Rony's massive strawberry tart (RM15.80, a portion for four people), generously crowned with U.S. Driscoll's berries.

 The selection isn't wide, but cranberry scones with cream cheese & blueberry jam (RM4.80)  taste worthwhile, while the Oreo cheese tart feels fairly fresh.

 Blueberry muffins? Maybe next time. Rony Recipe is conveniently open 10am-9pm daily.

 Custom-made Barbie "jelly cakes," pretty alluring (no, they're not creepy at all!).

Earl Grey tea caps this meal. Would love to spike this with a little gin.
