It was kinda sad when we knew that Podgy & The Banker Cafe at Jalan Sri Hartamas 8, Kuala Lumpur had decided to say goodbye for good, about half a year ago. We thought they would shift to somewhere nearby, but no sign of Podgy new shop coming in sight.
Until early of December 2017, we began seeing pictures of a photography-worthy cafe named Podgy Kurau, on Instagram. Podgy team is finally back in town! They are bringing the aroma of coffee into the neighbourhood in Lorong Kurau, Bangsar Kuala Lumpur!
Bangsar Lorong Kurau is actually a very nice place, lined up with reputable eateries like Ganga Cafe, Bakar, Baba Low 486, Bella by BIG and newer addition like Rubs BBQ Smoke House & Bar KL, N97 Bangsar and the latest, Podgy Kurau.
In contrary to Poddy & The Banker which has more raw & rustic, industrial touch on the interior, Podgy Kurau appears homey and welcoming, blending in modern design with the use of monochrome tiles, light wall colours, wooden furnishing, and potted green plants to create a lively, yet minimalism look.
Podgy Kurau menu currently covers familiar selections like Smoked Salmon Sandwich, Chicken Avocado Sandwich, Big breakfast, Omelette Toast, Open Tuna Sandwich, Aglio Olio Spaghetti, Pesto Chicken Spaghetti, Steak Sandwich and Vegetarian Spaghetti Olio.
If you are here in the afternoon for a cuppa, like us, Podgy Kurau doesn’t disappoint. Latte, Flat White, Mocha, Long Black for the common white and black; Matcha Latte, fresh orange juice, hot chocolate, Tea Pigs Tea for other non-coffee beverage. Pair with lovely dessert baked by Podgy in-house baker such as lemon tart, banana chocolate chip bread, mocha slices for a more blissful teatime session.
Plan to return again and check out their hot food. Price wise, beverage are within RM15; while breakfast, pasta and sandwiches are priced from RM15, nothing beyond RM30 in the meantime.
