Commoners Space @ Shah Alam


Twenty-two-year-old Syed Asyraf wants everyone to feel at ease at his new neighbourhood cafe, even though his offerings prove far from plebeian - linguine is buoyed by kitchen-made pesto sauce blended with broccoli & spinach, topped with local pucuk paku leaves, for a proletariat-friendly RM10. Commoners Space also takes the initiative to dabble in baking - its signature sourdough bread is fresh & crisp, birthing sandwiches thick & rich with beef bacon, mozzarella, cheddar, tomatoes & mustard mayo (RM10; add RM2 for an egg). Banana bread with toasted walnuts is satisfyingly textured, while cinnamon rolls prevail with no delusions of grandeur. Beverages span cold brew coffee & kombucha by Syed's brand, Commoners Cartel.

Commoners Space
71, Jalan Snuker 13/28, Tadisma Business Park, Section 13, Shah Alam. Open Sat-Thurs, 10am-7pm.

  1. I thought it was a slice of banana cake....then I noticed the butter on the side...then I read further and noted that it's banana bread. It looks as good as a banana cake! ;)
