Inspired by Sentul’s history as a railway hub that became home to thousands of immigrant workers, The Cart is a new pop-up cafe that serves Indian-Western fusion fare in SkyWorld Gallery @ Sentul. It’s an intriguing new collaboration between SkyWorld Development Group and three KL-based F&B brands - creative cuisine purveyors The Bowls, dessert destination Pretty On Plate, and coffee specialists The Mad Alchemy.

The Cart is billed as the first themed cafe operating within a property gallery in Sentul; its ambiance is meant to be serene, in line with SkyWorld's upcoming project launch of Bandar Baru Sentul's SkyMeridien residences.

We were invited to a preview of The Cart before its recent launch, with the house special of a Giant Curry Puff with Cheese serving as a striking introduction to the concept here. This is huge - potentially the biggest curry puff commercially available in KL. It’s both crunchy and chewy, stuffed with a filling mix of chicken and potatoes, plus the savoury novelty of melted cheese that dribbles out irresistibly, making each bite richer.

For main courses,we checked out the Premium Seafood Curry Marinara, served with a choice of Spiced Biryani Rice or Pasta. The curry is mildly spicy, packed with fresh oysters, prawns, and squid. Having this with rice feels like an upmarket variation of biryani, while enjoying it with pasta helps to spotlight the spices and the sauce even more thoroughly.

For dessert, the Pancakes with Bananas, Whipped Cream, Salted Caramel Compote and Cinnamon Ice Cream prove to be a comforting conclusion, with thick pancakes and a very evident flavour of cinnamon in the ice cream. The Cart’s Chai Latte is a refreshing beverage to wash down the meal.

  2. If there is no full running kitchen behind The Cart, that would mean some components are pre-prepared? That really looks like one giant curry puff! ;)
