95 Degres Art Cafe @ SS15 Subang

One of Subang's most intriguing new cafes, 95 Degres is a cocoon of calm, adorned with artwork on every wall, rising above & beyond SS15's overcrowded environs, spotlighting food with surprising flourishes, unflappably executed & persuasively priced.

95 Degres' forte rests in conception & construction - the most palate-pleasing recipes here feature a myriad of ingredients, fine-tuned for harmonious flavours & finessed for satisfyingly elaborate textures. We love the vegetarian baked eggs, delicately nuanced in its dynamics, creamy & complex in its dimensions, layered with a medley of potatoes, jalapenos, zucchini, aubergines, crunchy almonds, sour cream, luscious mozzarella cheese & a light tomato sauce - a should-order for RM16.90.

Vegetarians & carnivores are catered for alike - angel hair pasta is complemented by a mellow mix of soft & smooth tofu, bean sprouts, poached egg & tobiko, tossed with roasted sesame seeds in Japanese-inspired goma sauce (RM17.90); a hug on a plate, as wholesome & well-prepared as anything in this neighbourhood. It's a marvellous meatless meal, but if you must have your half-pound of flesh, the chicken roll (RM17.90) is memorably inventive, built with chicken leg meat, stuffed with chicken mousse, cushioned by a lovely mash of potato & pumpkin on a bed of zucchini, crowned with house-made sweet potato chips.

95 Degres does a distinctive French toast, a composition of whole-grain bread that retains its original nuances (not as sweet, eggy or custard-like as some versions), endowed with richness & character from a hodgepodge of strawberries, lychees, bananas, orange segments, almonds, wild honey & a unique caramel ginger syrup with a zing (RM15.90). In a duel of desserts, we'd be torn in deciding between the toast & the luscious white chocolate mousse, striped & elevated with pistachios & mango (RM12.90), a final testament to how 95 Degres succeeds in managing its intricate creations with flair to spare.

Here's where to discover coffee roasted by Australia's Duke speciality roasters - the piccolo ranks among Subang's most satisfying. There's also hot chocolate, made with Melbourne's Mork cocoa powder, tinged with dark milk chocolate, coconut blossom sugar & river salt, but its RM20 price tag might seem trickier to swallow. Corkage for wine is RM10 per person.

  4. I like the look of the goma sauce pasta but will it be too cloying if finish the whole portion alone?

    1. Choi Yen: ooo, luckily no ... The sauce is not too creamy, it's flavoursome but it tastes quite wholesome, and the fresh vegetables help to also balance it ;)

  5. I was wondering what the beautifully plated dish was until you mentioned it was French toast. That has gotta be one of the best French toast dishes I've ever seen, I'll go to try this place just for that alone. Plus point is that SS15 is actually quite close to me.

    1. Gine: the dishes all had interesting ingredients added to them that made them taste a bit different than expected. the owners are friends with the previous cafe's founders.
