Third Mile Cafe at Rivercity, Sentul

Sprouting on Rivercity this week, Third Mile will coax cafe enthusiasts to make the extra kilometre to Sentul, promising a chic-bright, lightly leafy look that’s IG-irresistible.  

But its bakes and brews are worthwhile too - fundamentals like sourdough toast and filter coffee hit the spot for morning satisfaction; the kitchen will unveil a wider menu of brunches, pastas and more on Tuesday.

Third Mile at Rivercity
Rivercity, Block G, Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah, Jalan Ipoh, 51200 Kuala Lumpur.

Pomod'Oro, Bukit Damansara

Bukit Damansara's new Pomod'Oro does simple, soulful justice to the rustic roots of recipes that span Italy's north to south. 

From the Abruzzo region, start with house-made chitarra, pasta with a full-bodied bite, lip-smacking with sausage meat and porcini mushrooms in light cream sauce, tasting like a plate prepared with love at Nonna's home (RM45).

From Lombardy, risotto alla Milanese with ossobuco, aromatic rice rich with saffron, partnered with braised veal shank that's monumentally fork-tender and magnificently filled with luscious marrow - one of our favourite renditions of this too-rare classic in KL (RM95).

From Campania, gnocchi alla Sorrentina, a steaming-hot casserole of authentic potato gnocchi, comfort food baked with buffalo mozzarella, saturated in tomato sauce that's a bit too sweetish for our liking (RM42).

Pizzas are also available, cooked in an Italian-made firebrick oven - the lightest choice is the Fornarina, with garlic, rosemary and olive oil (RM10). Dine beside some lovely wallpaper that honours the work of Early Renaissance painter Piero della Francesca.

20-G, Jalan Medan Setia 2, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Kuala Lumpur.

The Orange Couch Cafe, Subang Jaya

Could we BE any more turned on? Subang's latest cafe pays homage to Friends, featuring humorous tributes to the TV show, from its name that nods to the Central Perk sofa to its menu of six waffles that pivot from Chandler Bean (topped with tau-fu-fa ice cream) to Rachel Berries, Monica Mocha, Ross Chocs, Joey Oreo and Phoebe Earl-Grey. If you're on a (coffee) break, try the Orange Couch Signature citrus coffee cooler. 

This Orange could be the neighbourhood's new black, founded by Malaysian ex-engineer Eric, described by his cousin KW as the "rare yet incredible combination of both" doer and dreamer, finally realising his long-held dream of running his own cafe. Did someone tell him life was gonna be this way?
