43 Coffee @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail

After a very sumptuous dinner at 2nd Floor Kitchen & Bar, with very satisfying desserts as well, all we wanted was coffee to round off our pleasant evening.

We proceeded to a coffee place in the vicinity as we didn't want to have to drive too far and hopped into one car and ended up at 43 Coffee @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail.

Upon entering, I'm not sure what to make of the interior.  It's definitely spacious but it isn't what I'd expect a coffee place to look looked too formal, almost like an office setting.

The huge Chinese-inspired artwork hanging on the wall (that they inherited?) was a dead giveaway that it was possibly an office previously perhaps.  The dark timber doors was another (I think I even saw one that said 'meeting room' on the door...haha!) :D  One of my friends was even more precise, she said it looked like a lawyer's office...kekeke!  Who knows, it could have been.

Interior and ambience aside, we were just there for coffees.....and the coffees were certainly decent.

Iced Latte @ RM13

Hot Cappuccino @ RM12

If you like hot chocolate, they have four Indonesian brands for you to choose from...Valley Blend, Pulau Sapi, Bali Samsaman and Sulawesi Ranoha with a mouthfeel ranging from heavy to bold and rich, bright and smooth and buttery and creamy.  But we ended up not liking the Hot Mocha @ RM15 as we felt there wasn't enough chocolate flavour in the mocha.

There was a fruity berry cold brew special, the Cold Brew Tea @ RM15, which tasted minty and refreshing...a good choice on a hot day (works just as well on a hot night too)! ;)

A slice of crumbly Chocolate Hazelnut Rocher @ RM9.80 (usual RM14...and my friend ordered one to go since there was a promotion of 30% discount for cakes with purchase of any beverage).

My Personal Opinion

All we wanted was a good cuppa to round off our fantastic meal earlier and this place achieved that.  A decent place for coffee if you don't mind the 'office' vibe! ;P

Perhaps it can be a quiet setting where you can enjoy a cuppa and get some work done at the same time?  I did see a group of people (with paperwork in hand) having a meeting of sorts. ^_~

  1. Interesting setting. Lucky the coffee wasn't bad.

  2. Good idea for me to get my wife there to finish her thesis as we could easily walk there instead of driving to Starbucks. Wifey cannot work at home so much as she gets distracted by me or the TV programs. LOL

    1. Oh, within walking distance for you...then you should come. They have a loyalty card program...after like 6 or 7 drinks (can't remember the exact number), you get one free. They gave us a card with four stamps on it which I passed on to my friend since she's the nearest to the place.

  3. As long as the coffee and cakes are good, I don't mind the very stiff ambiance hah..hah..

  4. that's a nice way of serving cold brew tea, by adding the fruity elements. i'd like to see something like that tried with cold brew coffee in kl too, which is usually just served on its own with a plain glass :)

    1. I think they're able to do something 'more' to cold brew tea coz tea and fruits go together. With coffee? Erm, what goes well with coffee? ^_*
