New Menu & Star Wars Drinks @ Flingstones Cafe, SS15 Subang

Flingstones is maturing into one of Subang's most satisfying cafes for both food & beverages; with several interesting new temptations now on the menu, this feels like the right time to return here for a well-crafted meal laced with likeable surprises.

The Porky Fat Rice XL (RM20) deserves to be a best-seller - as its name signals, it's a high-calorie, high-pleasure feast, featuring Flingstones' own-made nasi lemak (firm & fairly flavoursome) with a scrumptious rempah pork belly (achingly succulent & aromatic), minced pork sambal (richly thick & punchy) & all the other essential, expertly executed accompaniments. And since it's currently the season to indulge, you might want to also order Flingstones' Babi Fried Rice (RM18), reputedly loaded with crispy pork lard, pork bacon, lap cheong & century eggs - we'll aim to try that next time.

Pastas also provide a potent punch: the Kapowww Spaghetti (RM18) comes wok-fried with chicken in a slick, spicy sauce - part of a leave-your-diets-behind selection that also includes a notorious 'chu yao char' angel hair, bacon carbonara & mushroom aglio olio (RM16-RM18). You can even add on ingredients like fried or scrambled eggs & sausage to your pastas.

With public frenzy over The Force now peaking, Flingstones has devised two novelty beverages, constructed with Darth Vader coffee cubes or Stormtrooper milk cubes. Available for a limited time, these 'Star Wars Fever' drinks (RM15 each) serve as playful, photogenic fun, as customers pour cold milk over icy Vader masks & melt trooper helmets with hot chocolate or coffee.

In time for Christmas, Flingstones introduces a Dirty Gingerman (RM13), containing coffee, milk & pleasantly mellow house-made ginger syrup, served with a cheerful gingerbread man cookie on the side. Ideal to sip while enjoying a ''Tiramichu,' lushly creamy-soft & irreproachably flavoured with the cafe's premium coffee blend. Many thanks to Flingstones for having us here.

  1. Went to eat at Flingstones once.. And loved their food. But the main headache was the parking.. Weekend will be the best bet or else you might have to double park in front of the busiest road in SS15.. But the pictures warrant a re-visit.. At least for me

    1. Leo: yeah, parking is also my main issue here, but you're right, i think it's worth the effort. and hopefully there might be some uber promotions for flingstones in the near future to ease your transport/parking concerns! :)

  5. Loved their food and coffee the first time round...and so did my friends who have been back numerous times. For some reason, the post I did on them seems to be the Top 10 most viewed posts of all time in my blog. Looks like I need to revisit soon....very soon! ;)

    2. It's 44C today, Sean, and the last day of the heatwave. *sighs* I can't quite see the actual lot that Flingstones is occupying now from the picture, but I'm assuming that it was rented to another tenant during my time there.

    3. Ciana: yikes, that's a scorcher! hope you get some relief soon :) yeah, i'm not sure what was there before flingstones came into the picture :)
