Heartbeans Coffee – Pandan Indah KL newest cafe. Spotted while Summerkid was on his way to weekend duty last Sunday.
For the past 20 years, Pandan Indah is the place that Summerkid ‘s family frequent most for breakfast and dinner. We’ll not say this neighbourhood area is brimming with uncountable choices, but it secures some of the best food in KL – Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee, Kheong Kee Bak Kut Teh, Pee Nong Thai Food, Hometown Steamboat and so forth.
Flat White RM10
Recently, we’ve seen a change of pace in Pandan Indah, from having only traditional kopitiam, seafood restaurants, and local food court to additional eateries which reflect energetic, young vibes – cafes with third-wave coffee. Bookmark Cafe, S Garden Cafe and Heartbeans Coffee ( not sure why we keep remember it as Heartbeat Cafe LOL ) are the few we came across by far.
Heartbeans Cafe is located same row with Fougasse Boulangerie & Patisserie. The cafe boasts a touch of industrial elegance, putting together concrete walls, wooden furnishing, vintage Edison light bulbs in its elongated cafe space. For food, you can find toasted sandwiches, French toast, English breakfast, pasta, chicken chop, fish & chips, fried chicken chops, spaghetti, nasi lemak rendang chicken, crispy chicken rice, coffee, fruit tea, flower tea, fruit juice, green tea latte, hot chocolate, milk tea on Heartbeans Cafe menu. All reasonably priced below RM20 except for Big Breakfast.
Nasi Lemak with Rendang Chicken RM16.90 ( include RM3 for Sambal Sotong)
Since Summerkid was not so into chicken chop nor spaghetti, he settled down for Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang. The pale green colour rice is laced with faint hints of pandan aroma, better if there’s more “lemak” oomph. Rendang chicken sauce, nasi lemak sambal, sotong sambal – all the 3 red hot sambal loaded on the plate was really good.
Sambal sotong is the best – flavourful, with sweetness come through at the first taste, followed by short spicy aftertaste. Sotong is chewy but not rubbery. Just nice to please. You have to add RM3 for it, but we strongly recommend that you should.
Garden French Toast RM18
Garden French Toast is new item on Heartbeans Coffee menu. A bed of green garden salad, with French toast placed over, further sprinkled with mushrooms and poached egg at the center. Colourful but somehow lack of surprise in taste. Filled with cheese, but not much cheesiness ( didn’t really get that kind of gooey, stretchy sensation when cut through the toast).
In short, a cozy cafe suitable for friends and family gathering. Food is reasonable in price, service is friendly. Nasi Lemak is highly recommended.
