Cafe Beside You, Petaling Jaya

By Aiman Azri


Cafe Beside You seeks to evoke the comfort of companionship through warm, nourishing bowls of rice and noodles - the former comes crowned with possibilities including shredded chicken with mentaiko sauce (RM12 for a large serving with egg) or unagi with cucumber (RM15 with egg); the latter showcases wholesome preparations such as organic brown rice noodles with scallops and tamago (RM13.50) and udon with prawn and mushroom in lightly spicy soup (RM13), pretty fairly priced fare for a fuss-free meal with clear Japanese influences.




Drinks display several distinctive touches - the Lemonrado is a lemonade with rich depth, strengthened by lime juice and sugar syrup (RM13), while the Super Coca-Cola is also ultra-refreshing, rounded out with a subtle chocolate smoothness (RM11). 

The non-alcoholic Coffee Beer is like a bittersweet cross between an iced espresso and a root beer (RM11), while Mr. Coffee & Ms. Earl Grey is a tea-and-coffee marriage of Earl Grey-infused milk with a large coffee ice cube that slowly seeps into the milk (RM12). If you prefer your coffee neat, very pleasant single-origin hand-pours are available.

  1. Is this that poke bowl kind of thing? Looks like the trend now is into bowls, bye bye plates.

    1. Suituapui: not exactly poke bowls, but more directly inspired by japanese donburi - you're right though that bowls are currently all the rage :D

  2. If this cafe was beside me, I don't mind visiting often since prices of RM15 and under are very reasonable (but not the prices of the drinks though). ^_~ I wouldn't mind the unagi bowl but probably not the tamago and scallops as the tamago looks like a thin omelette (I can make at home)...haha! :P
