Gridz Cafe @ Taman Desa

It's always fun to find a cafe that decides to do things a bit differently - Gridz's Porkie-Pine is a striking dish that we wouldn't ordinarily see in Taman Desa; it's a visual feast of vibrant hues, elaborately plated with slices of savoury, juicy pork belly for its centrepiece, complemented by morsels of pineapple & beetroot sauce - a deserving deal at RM19. Other recipes also display flashes of distinctiveness: Gridz seems to be run by a close-knit family that originally hails from Malacca, & they've put a southern Nyonya-spiced twist on their pasta, a masak lemak preparation complete with three large, fleshy prawns (RM15). 

 Gridz calls itself an Asian fusion destination, so it's no surprise that even the tiramisu isn't typical here - the ladyfinger sponge biscuits come crunchy in an 'open-face' presentation layered with lots of shredded coconut in the cream (RM8). Wash down with flower-based tea (the variety ranges from purple rose to hawthorn) & satisfactory milkshakes (RM10; peanut butter alert!).
