Li Restaurant @ Damansara Jaya - A Warm and Friendly Cafe
Couple of months ago, Joe and I decided to start hunting for new eateries to dine in over weekend and I came across Li Restaurant from Time Out KL.
Li Restaurant is a located opposite Atria Shopping Gallery and this comfy cafe serves classic kopitiam/local food with a modern twist. Stepping into Li, I really like the bright and warm ambiance that it gives out.
Sourdough with Butter & Kaya (RM 3.90). The sourdough was made in-house. Crispy edge and moist, it certainly has a perfect texture.
The kaya is made in-house too! Smooth with the hint of aromatic pandan flavours yet not too sweet. Joe wiped it clean with his sourdough!
Gemelli, Mushroom Vegetable Ragout, and Sourdough Crumbs (RM 14.90). This was an off-menu dish and the word "mushroom" caught my attention immediately. It was a bowl of al dente pasta that's packed with earthy mushroom flavours. I noticed they have revamped their menu and added this dish into their new menu.
Pasta with Slow Cooked Pork (RM 16.90). A seemingly simple dish, but it was flavourful. The slow cooked pork was juicy and tender. Due to the egg yolk, the pasta was on the creamier side, but I really like how to acidity of the pickled chilies cut through the creaminess.
Flat White (RM 11). Fairly strong and aromatic, the flat white was a decent cuppa.
Their menu might be as extensive and the place might not very instagrammable, but the food at Li are certainly worth a visit. In fact, I've actually went back a second time with my mom.
