Poco Homemade, Cafe & Atelier @ Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

September 13, 2010

I were just browsing KampungBoyCityGal’s blog when they posted this particular cafe that looks really nice with a bit of Taiwanese & Japanese and serve home-made Japanese food. So since I’m meeting up May for lunch and she don’t know what to eat, I suggested this place.

Poco Homemade, Cafe & Atelier actually located at Lorong Kurau around Bangsar and it’s easy to miss this when you are driving. It actually took me 2 rounds around that vicinity before able to locate the shop.

The cafe is very well decorated with a tinge of nostalgic feeling.

Notice the old bicycle near the wall, reminds me of my younger days where aunty staying around my area will use it to commute daily to the local wet market.

There’s not a lot of tables in the cafe, about 8 the most. Counting us that day, there’s only 3 group of customers there.

Both me and May ordered the Katsu Curry Set. Mine is the Chicken Katsu Set (RM15.80). It’s a simple and delicious meal with the Japanese curry very appealing with carrots and potatoes. The pork chop is done to perfection where it’s fried just nice, not too oily and very crunchy.

May’s Fish Katsu Set (RM15.80). All is the same except that instead of chicken, it’s fish instead. The fish that’s being used is very fresh. It’s also very well cooked because it’s always not easy to fry a fish, without making the fish overcook or undercook.

The Katsu set also comes with a bowl of miso soup, which is about the same as the one that you get to drink at Japanese restaurant.

For an extra RM1, we get to have a bottomless green tea and dessert, which is some sort like Guai Lin Gou.

We also ordered a chicken roll but since the owner forgot the other, we didn’t reorder it as we were already quite full with our Katsu set.

It’s a very nice little cafe and the food is quite authentically done too. The ambiance is nice and cosy, especially with some sort of Bossa Nova music on the background. We definitely won’t mind going there again to try the rest of the menu like Soba and the Chicken Roll that we have to forego
