Le Petit Rococo @ Tengkat Tong Shin

Tengkat Tong Shin might be best known for streetside stalls serving beef noodles & other classic kopitiam fare, but passers-by may have recently spotted this new pop-up that specialises in more contemporary offerings - Le Petit Rococo is a cool set-up of no-frills tables & chairs atmospherically juxtaposed with an alfresco backdrop of decades-old facades with crumbling paint.

Open throughout the day, this is a satisfying stop for hearty sandwiches assembled to order with loaves that showcase artisanal baking. We really enjoyed the one crammed to bursting with snow crab, grilled beef salami, avocados & coriander, juicy & flavourful, for a fair RM14. Other options include sandwiches with charcoal-grilled chicken, Greek yoghurt & Oriental spices (RM15) or with pumpkin, eggplant, toma cheese & roasted sesame (RM12). Sauces & butters are house-made.

Quality is also a hallmark of the fresh desserts - stall-keeper Mo, who comes to KL from Tajikistan, is right in recommending the banana honey yoghurt cake (RM9), pleasingly fluffy-moist in texture, delicately well-balanced in flavour. You'll also find carrot cakes, red velvet brownies, English scones, French financiers & more - this selection may sound somewhat familiar; Le Petit Rococo is the baby sister of Rococo, a cafe that's perched nearby on the rooftop of the Melange Boutique Hotel.

Mo makes some mean coffee, richly robust & aromatic, a fine accompaniment to the distinctive Le Petit Rococo experience. Thanks to Le Petit Rococo for having us here.

  1. Ahhhhhh!!! Where my favourite restaurant, Muar is! To this day, I have yet to try the beef noodles, hear so much about it. Stovetop coffee? I have one of those but not all coffee grounds are suitable for stovetop. Food looks really good and wherever that guy is from, he sure is handsome, eh? :D

  2. Oh, this is something new for your website. I think. It's not in a posh restaurant or cafe. But man, this is cool! Love this kind of set up.

    Btw, what are you using for your newsletter?

  7. That sandwich looks gorgeous! But the crab, it looks like crabstick and I don't like crabstick. The breads and cakes, those I cannot resist. Opps! Carbs! LOL!

    1. Phong Hong: yeah, i usually avoid crabsticks too, in sushi etc, so i was actually reluctant to choose this sandwich - but the ones here have a juiciness that makes them quite satisfying in this sandwich! haha - hopefully your cheat day is coming up really soon! :)
