Bookmark Coffee @ Taman Connaught: Customize the Drawing on Your Coffee
Latte art is so....... yester-year. Other than the shape of a heart, you'll probably get Tulip or swan on your latte. Unless the cafes you visit have super talented barista in making latte art; else, you'll be getting these common art.
What if I tell you, you can get more than these arts on your coffee? From Disney characters to daily objects or cartoons, you can have whatever art you want! Isn't this great? At Bookmark Coffee, you can draw anything you want on your coffee.
Bookmark Coffee has been operating in Taman Connaught for about 2 years, and I've heard about them for a long time. It is only until recently that I get to visit the cafe. Walked into the cafe, I notice there were books everywhere. After talking to the owner, only then I found out that he was previously a journalist and loves to read and the books in the cafe are his personal collections.
The cafe was very cozy and quiet. I could actually chill at the cafe for an entire day and do some reading.
Mozzarella Mamee Cheese Balls (RM 10). Cheezy Mozzarella cheese coated with crispy Mamee. This is THE BOMB! To truly enjoy the cheesy goodness, do eat it as soon as they serve it.
Mozzarella Cheese and Fries (RM 10). If cheese balls are not enough, boost up your carb intake with these cheese and fries!
Smoked Duck Breast Salad (RM 12). Smoky duck breast and crunchy salad has always been a perfect match. I highly recommend this dish, if you want something light to munch on or not too hungry.
Cheesy Crispy Fried Chicken (RM 18). OK, I admit I really LOVE cheese a lot!!! Tender, juicy fried chicken generously drizzled with savoury cheese sauce - this was too irresistible!
Homemade Pesto Pasta with Grilled Salmon (RM 18). Pesto can be "too single note" for some people, but the homemade pesto at Bookmark Coffee was a different story. Have it with a nicely grilled salmon, this is one simple yet satisfying dish.
Next, the highlights of Bookmark Coffee! Remember I mentioned earlier the drawings on the coffee? Here goes!
The owner himself is a self-taught artist, and he want to do something different from the usual latte art. After much practice, he presents to you "Art on Your Coffee".
The soundtrack of Beauty & The Beast was on a replay mode when this was served. The Hazelnut Latte Salty Milk Float (RM 12) had very subtle salty-sweet flavours, not too bad.
Oreo Salty Milk Float (RM 12). Blended with actual Oreo, this could be your favourite if you love Oreo a lot.
Pandan Milk Salty Milk Float (RM 12). It was slightly sweet for my liking, and I felt the pandan flaovurs could have been more pronounced.
Not only can you have drawings on cold beverages, but the hot ones too. We had a beautiful Eiffel Tower on our French Rose Latte (RM 11).
Bookmark Coffee is indeed a very cosy cafe where you can get nice food and have cute drawing on your coffee while you enjoy a book or two. It takes about 20 minutes to complete an artwork, so if you are in a hurry, do let them know and they can do a simple one for you.
