W Cafe @ Kota Damansara

Freshly roasted pork & fragrantly brewed coffee? A formidable partnership that forms the foundation of this new cafe.

W Cafe is passionate about pork, whipping up the likes of minced pork shepherd's pie & bacon fried rice or carbonara pasta most of the time. But for the ideal itinerary, head here on Friday, Saturday or Sunday - on those three days, starting from about 11am, the cafe's own-roasted Oriental 'siu yuk' is also available, in regular & stir-fried recipes (RM26.90 for a plate of both with a cup of coffee). Respectable renditions - meaty & tender, with the requisite brittleness of skin & full-bodied flavour of flesh.

Western-style roast pork belly is another weekend special, sandwiched with sambal & mustard in a crispy charcoal croissant for the 'Black Pig' (RM21.90 with coffee) - quite the indulgence; your waistline won't thank you for it, but your taste buds may.

And of course, bacon - splattered with cornflakes, ripely mellow bananas & peanut butter on toast for an irresistible-looking temptation that's sugary & savoury, juicy & crunchy. RM15.90. If you haven't realised it by now, dieters should skip W Cafe.

For the coffee seeker, beans are from Bandar Sri Damansara's BEAM; current stocks comprise Costa Rica Jaguar & Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga. Green tea lattes are offered too, but our best bet is this SoCo (RM18.90) - coffee with Southern Comfort.

  2. I absolutely love roast pork! :) I make it myself sometimes. I slit little tiny pockets in the top of the roast (fat is on the bottom and kept on it for flavour). I slide garlic cloves in the top in the pockets, then I sprinkle a little salt and pepper. I roast it for one hour at 300 F, the one hour at 350 F. I serve it with mashed onion potatoes, turnips and carrots and apple sauce. It is delicious and moist...tender, too! :)

  4. There seem to be more and more places serving mouthwatering pork dishes. Have you noticed a rise in recent years?

    1. The Yum List: you're right, there has been a rise, though it's still quite balanced by other places that serve mouthwatering non-pork dishes, heh :)
