Hinata Cafe @ Eco Sky Gallery

Fans of hidden cafes, check out this cosy one, tucked inside the offices of the Eco Sky property sales gallery, offering interesting Japanese-inflected temptations, such as soba topped with Japanese chicken curry 'bolognese' (RM18), a deliciously flavoured, smooth green tea creme brulee, & pumpkin cheesecake. If you like white chocolate, sip on the unique white hojicha or white mocha (RM14 each) or coffee crafted with beans from respected KL-based Japanese roaster Kato-san.

The Enclave @ Kurau, Bangsar

The Enclave's founder Vig sought to create the sort of cosy & soothing space where his fellow Bangsar residents could hang out for an honest, hearty meal. Vig & his warm, welcoming team have succeeded - it's a pleasure to step into the serenity of this neighbourhood restaurant & escape the world outside for awhile. Bonus points for the nostalgic photos that line the wall.

The menu hopscotches across the globe, with nasi lemak sharing the spotlight with nachos chili con carne & pasta carbonara with crispy beef brisket. Spice up your meal with mutton fried rice (RM20) or chicken shawarma (RM18), both built to stuff the stomach, washed down with Sangria (RM25) or a Chilean Merlot house pour (RM20 by the glass).

The Enclave
1 Lorong Kurau, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. Kitchen opens daily for lunch & dinner. Tel: 011-3126-2643

Zen House @ Sunway Velocity Mall

This vegetarian-friendly venue offers a comprehensive collection of Japanese fare in meat-free forms, from sushi moriawase (RM36.90) to kushiyaki skewers (RM33.90), tempura to teppanyaki, nabemono to noodle bowls. There's clearly thought & effort in how the food is crafted, but two caveats: A tolerance for mock meat (especially mock ham) seems crucial to enjoy a meal here, & the recipes might not taste more wholesome than regular Japanese fare (the skewers feel oilier than expected).

Zen House
B-27, Basement One, Sunway Velocity Mall, Jalan Cheras, Maluri, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-9286-7118
