Bean Brothers @ Sunway Damansara

This Korean-operated coffee bar on a secluded street in Sunway Damansara scores significant points for its striking looks, with a cavernous two-level warehouse space filled with intricately photogenic corners that'll become a social media staple.

Coffee is taken seriously, with beans roasted in Bean Brothers' home nation. House blends with official names like Black Suit (nutty) & Velvet White (fruity tea-like) include Ethiopian, Brazilian & Guatemalan beans (each serving of coffee currently costs RM12, whether you have it black or white), brewed to partner with the cafe's own-baked cakes & cookies (excellent), plus a limited selection of dishes like pan-seared polenta with mushrooms, gorgonzola cheese, spinach & truffle oil (RM20) or chicken leg with olive oil, pea puree, pickled daikon & oven-roasted potatoes (RM25) - note that the kitchen closes at 4:30pm.

  13. I went there yesterday afternoon with my friends. The ambiance is interesting. However what is disgusting to us is two out of the three kitchen helpers were using their fingers and pinching on the food they were preparing, right in front of us as the kitchen is open. I called on the waitress and told her about it and they continued to do that. Next time u all go, just look at the kitchen, you will know I what I mean. Will never go back there again!
