Mention Cocomo to KL-lites and they'll definitely remember this old place in Bangsar (those of a certain age) rather than the movie where Tom Cruise threw a few bottles in the air. When this cafe was in Bangsar, it was a great place to hang out as it was nice and quiet plus it served great food. Nothing seems to have changed ever since they shifted to Damansara Perdana as the food is just as good. The Spaghetti Calamari (RM16) is my favourite - I usually order this whenever I visit. Tender calamari rings coupled with a tomato sauce that's rich, slightly garlicky and topped with cherry tomatoes.
Splashie Boy's not very adventurous when it comes to food so it's just a plain Turkey Ham and Cheese Sandwich for him that's nicely toasted. I sneaked a bit from him to test the taste and it's good. I especially liked the fries - nice and crispy even though it's just the normal type you get from the freezer.
Besides western meals, they also have laksas here and their Singapore Laksa (RM9.80) is popular. Creamy and slightly tangy, this version comes with thick beehoon strands, juicy prawns, fishballs and sliced fish cake. Really good for those laksa lovers and I love drinking up all the sinful curry broth.
They also serve good cakes here which you can select from their dessert selection. My only complaint is you don't see much of their Cocomo Special (that cake which I love with it's light chocolate mousse texture) at the display section. Parking around this area is quite a nightmare though especially during weekdays. Everyone double parks here so sometimes people get stuck even though they have parked legally.
