Tujoh @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

With a soaring skylight set over a soothing space, Tujoh's leafy interior isn't what you'd expect of a Section 17 shop-house - this PJ neighbourhood's newest cafe seems set for social media success, a credit to its founders who've gone the extra yard.

The menu springs a few surprises too - our favourite order here is the Wafu Hambagu, comprising a chicken patty stuffed with a runny yolk, topped with garlic mashed potatoes & sweet shoyu, a tasty combo that'll be comfort food for many customers (RM23). Other competently executed headliners include a riff on beef stroganoff with Asian spices (RM18) & crispy-skinned salmon fillet slathered with creamy mentaiko sauce (RM32), complemented by flat whites (RM10) & hojicha lattes (RM12).

    1. Syzwni: it's pork-free but as with most cafes in the klang valley, it's not officially halal-certified. the kitchen team here does include muslims, i believe ;)

  10. I do not have any specific requirement on foods. But i seriously need to comment their food and hope they make improvement.

    If u would want me to rate on this restaurant, except the nice ambience, it rating would be 0.5 star (its come from their cheesecake), the 13 foods serve are poor. Sorry to comment this.

    Most of the food are tasteless. I doubt that they dont have salt.
    The recomended creamy tomyam no taste. The kongpao spagetti order 4 plates but the food serving are not even (some dry, some too much sauce and oily).. the most worse are the seafood oglio olio, we ordered 2 plates, they are tasteless.. i wondered how couls them serve this kind of food to customer...can you imagine the taste ...like the spagetti soak into hotboil water and take up to mix with olive oil. We asked the waiter cook it again, they simply add some chilli flake but still taste..i think it is because no salt added at all. Last but not least, the softshell crab spagaheti found out aluminium foil!!!!! Omg.....

    I hope they take note on this.
    I was suggested to a poor cafe for birthday celebration and i felt sorry..it took us about 1.5hours to finish the lunch.
