Do not underestimate an eatery that looks ordinary from exterior, as it can be a hidden gem with a good team that can churn out delicious fares to satisfy your discerning palate. Calabrese Cafe in Kepong can be one of them.
Located in Desa Aman Puri, Calabrese Cafe is tucked away at the corner of a row of shop houses, humbly serving a wide variety of Western cuisines. The entire cafe is simple and cozy, adorned with paintings on walls and ornaments on shelves.
Wild Mushroom Soup(RM7.90)
Starts with a bowl of wild mushroom soup, a tummy warming starter that boasts a creamy sensation with mild fragrance of assorted mushrooms. Better if heavier mushroom flavours could be loaded in.

Vongole Clam Spaghetti (RM18.90)
Spaghetti is al-dente, gracefully soak up the sweet essence of soup boiled using clams. Tossed with generous amount of clams, garlic and chilli for a great bountiful flavours. And so Summerkid said: This is how I like my spaghetti to be like.
Calabrese Signature BBQ Pork Ribs (RM28.90)
We doesn’t put much expectation to their pork ribs at first. But to our surprised, it is so aromatic once dished out, making us to have our saliva dropping. The rack of ribs are bursting with flavours, having meat tenderly fall off the bone and wonderfully pairs with the smoky sweet homemade BBQ sauce thickly smothered over. Just one let down, the ribs are not meaty enough, leaving us craving for more.
Roma Margarita (RM16.90)
Toppings of pizza can be of anything, as long as they are brought to a match with your cheese, and base spread. Roma Margarita pizza works on a combination of meatball, honey tomato, mushroom, and mozarella cheese toppings over tomato spread. The end result is good with a thin crust which is crisp at the edge and soft at the center, brimming with meaty and juicy ingredients.
Famous Italian Tiramisu (RM9.90)
End the meal with awesome dessert specially prepared by Calabrese- the Famous Italian Tiramisu. This dessert is soft throughout, creamy,with distinct alcoholic touch.
Another noteworthy element in this restaurant is their beverage section, which comes in interesting name that you may need to ask the waiter for the ingredients behind these names. For example, Eternal Granter Idun, Spirit Whisperer Vakkyrie, History Writer Urd, and Fate Keeper Verdandi. Feel free to make a wild guess.
