The Glass House @ Metropolitan Square, Damansara Perdana

People who live in glass houses shouldn't drink bad coffee: At first blush, this handsome new caffeine bar - bathed in sunbeams in a leafy, two-level setting - looks like it's been conceived solely as a superficial decoy for social media shots. But The Glass House, run primarily by New Zealander Glen & his Malaysian partner Elaine, is determined to be a draw for earnest coffee enthusiasts, enticed by an evolving selection of single origins & blends by respected roasters from across the globe.

Check out the current secret stash of offerings from Indonesia's Tanamera & Australia's Market Lane (Glen travels to Jakarta regularly, & he was formerly a barista in Melbourne before coming to Malaysia in 2014), best served as filters (pretty satisfying), though espresso-based beverages are also available. As an opening promotion, all coffee (including pour-overs) will be sold at RM5 per serving through next week, following which flat whites & cappuccinos will be RM10, with filters & lattes at RM12. By mid-2016, The Glass House hopes to cement its status as a multi-roaster cafe with seasonal, monthly-changing coffee sourced from the UK, Scandinavia, Japan & beyond. Simple snacks - pastries, sandwiches & cakes - are in the pipeline.

  4. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Hehehehehe!!! Old English proverb. Oh? Tanamera is the brand of one Indonesian coffee, eh? I enjoyed the tv series in the 80's, same name - based on Singapore history.

  6. Dayum, I know where this is. The atmosphere looks really inviting! =)

    Wait, Tanamera? That reminds me of a residence somewhere along the borders of Shah Alam and Subang Jaya.
