5.1 Cafe Gallery at Sri Petaling Kuala Lumpur, a cafe that scores high for their coffee & tortilla pizza.
Situated along the quiet alley of Jalan Radin Bagus 5 (above Tanjung Sepat Fish Ball Noodle Shop), 5.1 Cafe Gallery may not have the best location in Sri Petaling, but they manage to work their way up, becoming one of the memorable eateries around the neighbourhood.
5.1 Cafe Gallery gets their name from the pH of coffee, which is generally slightly acidic with pH around 5 to 5.1. Besides beverage’s pH accuracy, the extra decimal also highlights aims of the cafe to offer refined, duo experience to customers, putting together coffee, art and photography that makes 5.1 Cafe lives up to its name “cafe gallery”.
Interior is towards raw and rustic, thoughtfully designed with lots of wooden elements in different textures used on coffee counter, walls, shelves and furnitures. Mini decorative items and pictures adorning the wall, dim yellow lighting for a relaxed, homey ambience. Smoking-area is available outdoor.
5.1 Cafe Gallery menu covers mostly Western food with Asian fusion touch, and some creative delights designed by the chef. For rice dish, check out Black Pepper Chicken Rice, Cheesy Sausage Rice, Cheesy Crab Roll Rice, Cheesy Bacon Rice, Little Piggie Rice, Mushroom Chicken Rice and Fish Fillet Rice. Omit your rice and make them into Western with better portion of meat. Pasta is more straightforward, covering Bacon Pasta, Chicken Pasta, Vege Pasta and Tuna Pasta. Burgers, salad, light snacks are available too. Most items are reasonably priced, below RM20.
5.1 Tortilla Pizza RM15.90
What interest us more in 5.1 Cafe Gallery is their Tortilla based dishes, available in both sweet and savoury. We began with 5.1 Tortilla Pizza. Real thin, crispy with plenty of flavours from bacon, mushroom, cheery tomato, cheese generously loaded over tortilla sheet. Those who love their pizza this way, this is the must for you.
Crispy Crunchy Banana RM13.90
Moving on to the sweet, we had Crispy Crunchy Banana – banana, peanut, almond, chocolate syrup, icing sugar, strawberry and ice cream over tortilla sweet. Lots of crunch from nuts, always the great pairing with banana and chocolate.
Bite Me RM13.90
Added another dessert tortilla – Bite Me. Pretty similar to Crispy Crunchy Banana for ingredients, filling banana, nutella, chocolate syrup, strawberry, chocolate chips, iceing sugar, almond in tortilla sheet and make into roll, crowned with ice cream. More chews, less crispy. Other sweet treat you can have include Chocolate Banana Toast, Toasted Marshmallow, Honey Toast and Our Cereal, just to name a few.
Coffee earns an important role in 5.1 Cafe Gallery, as the owner loves coffee a lot. Apart from classic espresso based like macchiato, piccolo, americano, flat white, mocha, cappuccino and latte, the beverage menu also list out flavour-infused coffee such as rose latte, tiramisu latte, caramel latte, hazelnut latte, nutella lattle, mint hazelnut latte, mint matcha latte, mint caramel latte, mint tiramisu latte. Enjoy also pour-over coffee with El Salvador, Ethiopia Sidoma or Indonesia beans.
Matcha Latte RM10.90
Super pretty Matcha Latte!
Overall review: Friendly service. Nice food with wallet-friendly price. Tortilla-based pizza and dessert are must- try. At times, coffee and beverage with milk appear in photography-worthy way with etching latte art. Plan to try out their Snow White and Beauty & The Beast Toast in next visit.
