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.
