The mushrooming of cafes in Klang has been increasingly rapid lately. Being a Klang bred, I can't help but feel happy witnessing the humble hometown of mine gradually turns into a foodie haven with more added choices of cuisines.
I have always told Kingsley that there aren't good Western cafes and restaurants in Klang but now I observe some changes and I hope this doesn't cease because Klang has a poor history of successful Western restaurants. Apparently Klang folks are still rather conservative in terms of food but I wish they're not at the verge of transitioning into a more modern eating lifestyle.
Card Cafe caught our attention recently when it was pre-opened for testing prior to its official launching day. It features a very unique theme of CARDS - something I wouldn't even think of merging it with a cafe.
It has frames hung on the walls with display of the various types of cards. We had a sudden bemusement looking at the cards and they were real, even credit cards!
So how does the food here in card cafe perform?
With the penetration of Western coffees into Klang, I guess the expectation has slightly elevated in both the quality of taste and beauty of coffee arts. Kingsley was doubting if there would be coffee art on the latte we ordered and we were glad the cuppa came pretty. Taste was satisfactorily good except some lacking in vanilla flavour but slightly overpriced for Klang standards perhaps.
The Card Cafe Saucey Meatball (RM10.90)
We really appreciate how Card Cafe put so much effort into their food presentation of which we deem plays quite a vital role to at least boost customers' mood and appetite. However, despite the meatballs being creatively served, we felt they need to improve much on the taste. The meat was too chewy with unchewable gristles that caused Kingsley some frustration. Otherwise, this should be yummy because the BBQ sauce showered along with the meatballs was tasty.
The Card Cafe Penne Pesto (RM13.90)
Kingsley and I rarely have penne paste but I decided for a change that night. We didn't expect much from the pasta after the slightly unpleasant experience with the meatballs but contrastingly, the pasta was good. The homemade creamy pesto sauce was so rich in spices that our taste buds were ignited and craving for more. I like how it was mildly spicy yet didn't burn our tongues. This is highly recommended!
The Card Cafe's Beef Burger (RM14.90)
This homemade burger is made of thick beef patty, caramelized onions, mushroom fries and mix salads. Again I love the presentation here - it looked simply yet appealing. How we wished the taste was as good as the food presentation because the beef patty, just like the meatballs, contained gristles that made the chewing so unpleasant. Sesame bun was good, fries were fine but overall, not something we would recommend.
Conclusively, Card Cafe appears as an amiable cafe that serve Western-styled food items not commonly available in Klang. We can't really foresee if this is going to be a big hit but we look forward to seeing a more welcoming response for Western cafes.
