The Mad Alchemy


Coffee on wheels: Folks who live or work around Bukit Jalil can now find caffeine beside the road, where one man braves the heat to ensure the people have espressos.

The Mad Alchemy can currently be hunted down usually near trucks selling tau fu fa & chee cheong fun to the students of the International Medical University (IMU). Track the trail (plus opening hours, typically 10am-5pm weekdays) at https://www.facebook.com/TheMadAlchemy

The lattes taste nice, as satisfying as most that we'd savor at regular coffee bars.

But this time, it's better to have a cold beverage to beat the sultry, no-sweater weather.

  8. There was a mobile "coffee bar" in Paris - we tried to hunt it down the last time we were there, but the cycling barista remained elusive.

  9. I like this kinda road side concept, as long as they are able to maintain the hygiene factor, it should be cheap + good :D
