Oomph Cafe @ Taman Desa

Oomph is apparently aimed at fitness enthusiasts who want to refuel after workouts - the cafe's founders Kuan & Vickie say their recipes are made with minimal salt, sugar & preservatives, relying instead on, say, extra virgin olive oil for a health boost. Their chicken taco wraps (RM10) comprise a tasty stuffing & a spicy-tangy side sauce, while their cakes - lovingly home-made by Vickie's mom - may look like over-indulgent calories, but both the dragonfruit red velvet & the banana cake with peanut butter cream cheese were enjoyably dense, rich & fresh. Smoothies, juices & protein shakes include a Virgin Pina Colada with pineapple, coconut & yoghurt, & a Snowstorm with vanilla whey, white chocolate & milk (RM10 for small, RM12 for large).

Oomph Cafe
52B, Jalan Desa Bakti, Taman Desa, Kuala Lumpur. Tues-Thurs, 1230pm-10pm; Fri-Sun, 1230pm-12am

  1. Would be rather hard to spot, overshadowed by that kedai...arak. LOL!!!

    1. Suituapui: yeah, it's a strange juxtaposition ... but yeah, oomph is at a disadvantage since it doesn't quite have its own permanent signboard ;)

  2. Banana cake with peanut butter cream cheese sounds like some thing I would enjoy! And this cafe is not far from our place, hehehe :P

    1. CK: yeah, i think you'd like the cake - it's not too sweet but it's quite flavourful :D

  3. This place give me a cool feeling, most probably because of the raw cement wall and the metal furniture :P

    1. Choi Yen: yeah, it's not a bad place to escape the heat, especially since it's air-conditioned inside :)

  4. Oomph huh... prices aren't too bad actually! :D

    1. Rebecca: yeah, i think pretty suitable & OK for taman desa :)

  5. This is such a good idea. I love the old signboard. It caught my eye right away.

    1. Huai Bin: i'm sure oomph's founders will be glad to hear you say that :)

  6. Is wifi available? Is it suitable if I want to do my assignments there or read a book?
