Dining @ La Casa Cafe, Bandar Manjalara, Kepong, KL



One weekend, we thoroughly explored the Bandar Manjalara area to search for De Foodland. Initially we thought it was at the shophouses near the petrol stations hence we went round the area a few times to look for it. After finding it completely away from the area, we eventually returned here for a very late lunch.

At first we thought we were dining at Chef Ken's Cafe since the signboard said that was the restaurant but when we went in, they informed us they're actually La Casa Cafe who had taken over the place. It was a pretty good sized crowd here hence we decided to try their food. They serve mainly cafe style items and we asked their waiter to recommend their specialties which I vaguely remember to be the Carbonara, Baked Chicken and Cajun Salmon. We ordered their Fettucini Carbonara (RM16.90+) which was pretty good. Not too rich a sauce which came with lots of sliced mushrooms and turkey ham pieces.



I ordered the Baked Chicken (RM21.90+) which came with two pieces of rolls to soak up the juices. This was very delicious as the sauce was flavoursome. In fact, I kinda suspect they added a dash of alcohol in it. The rolls were a great idea as you could really soak up the sauce till the last drop.



Splashie Boy chose a slice of Carrot Cake (RM6.90+) for us to share. The cake's texture is quite nice and fluffy, not too rich. I didn't like the topping though as they had heated it up hence the topping tasted kinda artifical.

Note that La Casa Cafe used to be at Medan Putra and Chef Ken has migrated hence he has closed his cafe. You can get more information about the cafe from the
Fooxion Forum as one of their members is related to the owners.
