Chaplang Kafe + G-Lat Ice Cream @ Taman OUG

This laid-back cafe mainly welcomes folks from around the neighbourhood with crowd-pleasing fare (pizzas & pastas). But even if you're not in Taman OUG, it's worth checking out Chaplang, an overhaul of the former Butter + Beans - this is currently the sole venue that offers G-Lat, a new range of ice cream in playful Malaysian flavours, created by local brand Forty Licks.

 G-Lat's entire assortment is tempting enough that choosing only one or two scoops might be tortuous - flavours include kaya toast, soursop, bandung, neslo, durian, or coconut + gula melaka (RM7 per scoop, RM15 for two, RM17 for three). Flavours are satisfying executed; everyone will have a personal favourite, but if a suggestion is desired, neslo & coconut gula melaka are notably tasty. Customers can have four scoops on a dense, crispy pandan waffle with lots of kaya & bits of popcorn that's named Bulatan Kampung Pandan (RM24) - a witty moniker befitting of a cool destination that dares call itself Chaplang Kafe.

The murals here are pretty cool too - kudos to the artist.

  1. Isn't the word chaplang supposed to mean substandard or lousy? (that's what I learnt from my KL friends when I first moved here). Surely not this cafe. Perhaps they are using reverse psychology? Now, I want that Bulatan Kampung Pandan all to myself with extra lashings of kaya!

    1. Phong Hong: heh, yeah, i think they chose the name in a tongue-in-cheek way, sort of being rebellious perhaps :D i like kaya too ... though too much kaya can be too much of a good thing, heh! :D

    1. Choi Yen: haha, ya, one of the KL landmarks ... and it sort of fits the feeling of a circular waffle too, so congrat to the chef who named it :)
