Ziffy Cafe @ Kota Damansara

Nothing iffy about Ziffy: Kota Damansara's latest cafe serves a spiffy selection of Melbourne-inspired brunches with international influences & set lunches with local twists in a sleek setting that hosts live musical gigs on selected nights.

Scrambled or shakshuka: Taco About Awesome (RM19) stuffs soft tortilla wraps with plenty of creamy eggs, spinach, mushrooms & tomatoes, while Shakshuka Surprise (RM23) combines baked eggs & shredded chicken with mozzarella cheese & Neapolitan sauce - comfort food that complements coffee brewed with beans from the KL-based AIM Coffee roasters.

Ziffy's midday meals represent a sturdy bargain: From 12pm to 2pm, RM20 gets you a substantial portion of seafood paella or seafood spaghetti goreng, both capable of satiating a crustacean obsession, spiked with chillies to fire up the local palate, plus a soup of the day & iced peach tea. There's some genuine effort poured into the offerings here.

Ziffy Cafe
Ground Floor, Sunway Nexis, Kota Damansara, Selangor. Currently open 10am-10pm, except Wednesdays.

Bonjour Vietnam @ Taman Bukit Mayang Emas & Pho Le Saigon @ Kota Damansara

Bon appetit: Served steaming-hot, Bonjour Vietnam's peppery pork hock noodle soup (RM7.50) & pho with beef brisket, tendon & meatball in a sweetly mellow broth prepared with six-hour-cooked shin bones (RM10) convey pleasantly distinct, clean-tasting flavours, chock-full of meat, whipped up fresh in a kopitiam kitchen. Worth a stop for folks in this neighbourhood.

Drizzle @ Cyberjaya

It might not be raining cafes in Cyberjaya, but Drizzle ensures this town won't endure a drought of Melbourne-style brunch fare such as smashed avocados with poached eggs on toast (RM17), in-vogue nutrition in the form of blueberry smoothie bowls (RM19), decadent desserts like a creamy chocolate-vanilla cake layered with salted caramel (RM14) & a pour-over of hot milk, splashing down on coffee ice cubes & smeared Nutella for a well-balanced beverage to beguile the young at heart (RM13.50). Brownie points for the Beatles-idolising soundtrack, with Eleanor Rigby & Penny Lane playing at 11am on one recent morning.

Dognvill Burgers @ Oslo, Norway

Oslo is a city that loves its burgers, with numerous patty-flipping joints across the capital - Dognvill ranks among the most recommended; the beef is sourced from Norwegian farms in Jaeren & ground in Stavanger, with topping combinations that range from pulled pork & dry-salted bacon to tallegio cheese with butter-&-balsamico-fried portobello mushroom & herbal mayo. If you can brave the heat, try the surprisingly spicy Sterke-Nils, crowned with sauteed habaneros, jalapenos, green chillies & double cheddar. Down with some 'Dirty Fries' & a St-Germain cocktail.
