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 ;)
