bookmark_borderIn Cameron Highlands – Rosette Café, Tanah Rata

Though we could go for another round of steamboat, we were not really in mood for it. Hence, a quick good search has brought us to this place in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highland.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Locating Rosette Café was quite a chore. We roughly knew where the café was but we still had to look out for it. Without a proper signage, I had to rely on photos posted on the internet to search for it. The only landmark that I managed to spot from the photos was the Ambank.

Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Despite its small space, the café exuded relaxing ambiance with tables and chairs arranged close to one another. The menu was pretty extensive. It has probably more than 50 dishes covering from rice to noodles, eastern dishes to western meals. The café also served steamboat too… pretty much a common thing for restaurants in Cameron Highland.

Drinks at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

Nothing wanting to go full on, we opted for something simpler; their dinner set meal which consists of bread and butter, soup, main (western) meal and a drink. There were two sets and we went for both; Set Meal A (RM16.50) and Set Meal B (RM18.50).

Soup and buns at Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The food didn’t take long to arrive although the café was half filled. The warm buns were quite tasty, went well with the knob of butter. The mushroom soup, however, was pretty much run of the mill.

The black pepper steak (Set Meal B) was pretty tender. But due to their seasoning of sorts, it somehow has the sweet taste after each bite. I didn’t really like it but I didn’t hate it either.

Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce by Rosette Cafe, Cameron Highlands

The chicken chop with mushroom sauce (Set Meal A), on the other hand, was pretty good. The chicken was well marinated and deep fried to perfection. The skin was crispy while the meat was still juicy; pretty good to eat it on its own even without the sauce. The mashed potatoes on the side was probably of those instant ones; nothing to shout about.

For the price we paid for, I guess they were quite affordable. The portion was alright and the service was okay. We left the café feeling just right, enough space for a cuppa and dessert.

With contemporary, hipster-ish cafes sprouting around Klang Valley in rapid pace, it is hard not to miss out this relatively unknown, quiet eatery hidden in suburbs of Ampang. Sharing the same vicinity with art gallery, batik shop and etc, That Latte Place serves rather simple meals coupled with good coffees.

That Latte Place, Ampang

Despite its obscure place, it certainly has garnered its well earned attention due to its unique ambiance and perhaps, its coffee. Not sure about the other days, the kitchen and coffee bar were running at full steam as the place was crowded by 10am. It took awhile for the food and drinks to be served but it didn’t matter to me as the place where I sat was airy… aided by ceiling fan.

Egg BenedictHouse Egg Ben (Eggs Benedict (RM17.90))

While the egg benedicts looked pretty and all, it could have been better if the yolks were runny, oozing upon bursting the sack. The poached eggs, piled on top of mushrooms, ham and sweet, soft bread, on that day was wee bit overcooked to my liking.

Scrambled Eggs with CroissantCroissant Egg Sandwich (Croissant with Scrambled Eggs (RM8.90))

The eggs that came along with croissant were overdone too. They came close to be called omelette rather than scrambled eggs, which are supposed to be velvety, smooth and creamy. But it was tasty and went well with the flaky French pastry.

Iced Mocha and Cappuccino coffeeIced Mocha (RM9) and Cappuccino (RM8)

I liked my Iced Mocha which was adequately thick yet packed with caffeine punch but I am not sure about the cappuccino though.

Overall, the meal was neither bad nor good. And again, it could have been better. Perhaps, the kitchen was hectic at that time, I suppose. Nevertheless, it’s a nice place to have a cuppa and meal during weekends and/or off days.
