80's was a decade of fun with bold styles and vibrant colours, it was also a time where kids would be having lots of outdoor fun rather than staying indoor playing with smart phones or computer games. Are you an 80's kid? What are your favourite memories as an 80's kid?

I Am 80's Cafe is located at SS4, Petaling Jaya and I've been to the cafe couple of time. Compared to other PJ area, to get a parking at this area is considerably easy. The cafe is owned by TK Dong, an 80's kid himself, and he wanted to create a fun-filled space - just like how the 80's was.

Stepping into the cafe, you'll only see very tables and chairs.

Right next to the entrance, there is this artwork of kids playing and when I took a closer look, I realized it's an artwork of the games where kids used to play back in the 80's. This definitely brought back some memories for me. Any of these games look familiar to you?

My favourite childhood snacks! My friends and I used to stay back in school for extra-curricular activities, and one of our favourite past time was to sneak out from the school to one of the grocery shop nearby buying these snacks.

There is an "underground" dining area in the cafe. Take the staircase down, you'll find yourself being surrounded by items from the 80's. Any of these collections brought back memories for you?

From the artworks on the wall to the decorations/collections all over the cafe, the owner has put in lots of efforts in creating that fun and vibrant 80's vibe.

Dog Food (RM 24). Don't be deceived by the name or look of this dish, Dog Food is a hearty plate of fries, mashed potatoes, sausage and more cheese!

Mussel Cream Pot (RM 24). Black mussel, Basil, mixed herb and cream sauce served with bread. Steamed mussel is my favourite dish but this is the first time I had mussel served in cream. I was very worry about the heaviness of the cream sauce but it is surprisingly, and you could taste the subtle flavours of basil, which is a nice touch to the slightly sweet cream sauce.

80's Signature (RM 138). If you are going in a group and can't decide what to eat, have the 80's Signature then.

The platter comes with 1/2 roasted chicken, fish & chip, salad, tomato bruschetta, tempura prawn & squid ring, BBQ sausage, 12" sausage, soup (2 bowls), spaghetti & childhood drink (2 bottles). Although the menu says for 2 pax, 6 of us girls had problem finishing the platter. On the other hand, if you are really hungry or going in a big group, go for it!

Spring Chicken (RM 33). Mashed potato, pea, sauteed onion with gravy sauce. One thing about I Am 80's Cafe, their food comes in pretty big portion. Instead of serving quarter or half, they decided to serve a whole Spring Chicken. There is something very satisfying having a whole roast chicken.

CCC Fried Chicken (RM 16). Perfectly fried chicken that are juicy with aromatic flavours of curry leaves.

Sarawak Laksa (RM 18). Noodles served with tiger prawns, black mussels, shredded chicken and egg. What make Sarawak Laksa so delicious is the bold and vibrant flavours of the herbs, and I Am 80's Cafe is definitely serving some mean Sarawak Laksa.

Dancing in the Pan (RM 20). Bread & butter pudding, custard sauce, chocolate sauce and ice cream.

Once serve, pour the custard sauce and chocolate sauce over the bread pudding, and take a spoonful of everything from the hot pan. I like the hot & cold combination of the dessert but it is a little too sweet for my liking.

Creamy Steam Egg (RM 15). Silky smooth creme brulee serves with mixed fruits.

Ah Gong Taste (RM 10/bottle). From Left to Right - 80's Coffee, 80's Kopi O, 80's Milk Tea.

Fruity Smoothie (RM 15.90/bottle). From Left to Right - Banana Mango Yogurt with Basil Seed, Blueberry & Red Berry Yogurt, Mix Berries & Dragon Fruit. The smoothies are very refreshing.

Compared to many cafes out there, I Am 80's Cafe considered having a slightly smaller menu. However, what they are lacking they compensated with flavours and big portion. Apart from the ones that we had, they have a very interesting dish on the menu named "No Idea" - where the chef will decide what to serve base on the ingredients they have in the kitchen. I've ordered No Idea on several occasions and I was served a different food every time. For those who love surprise, I would highly recommend No Idea.
