Brilliantly vivid, lavishly chic
By Agnes Aui
Just a stretch from the well-known KFC in Kampung Rantau Panjang, Klang is the playful and intriguing Momento Café. Even from the outside, one can appreciate the colourful interior and pastel-washed walls through the large window panes. But step foot into the café and be met with gold-accented walls to gold-plated spotlights and seating – giving the eatery added opulence. Families with children need not worry as a play pen with photo-worthy props will keep your little ones busy as you relax on plush couches.
When it comes to food, Momento Café offers a wide array of choices. But one to try is its signature creamy pan-fried chicken that’s seasoned with balance. The chicken on its own is juicy and soft while the creamy sauce generously coats the piece and is topped with buttery chunks of mushroom. If you’re craving for some pasta, try its lamb chop pasta – with two magnanimous pieces of lamb atop a simple pepper spaghetti with broccoli and onion accompanied by black pepper sauce. We recommend to combine a piece of lamb with every spoonful of pasta to achieve the ultimate burst and balance of flavours.
Take a trip down memory lane with the cafe’s rainbow cake, a perfectly layered and colourful slice that reminds us of the butter cakes we used to get for our birthdays when we were younger. The cake was not too sweet, making eating it almost guilt- free. For something cooling, try the snow ice in chocolate – made with chocolate from New Zealand and topped unsparingly with whipped cream, caramel drizzle and Oreo cookie crumbs. The dish is bittersweet and perfect for sharing with family or friends who have a soft spot for dark chocolate.
However, if sweet drinks are further up your alley, opt for the strawberry ice blended that’s authentic, refreshing and balanced. Every sip consists of sugary goodness and even slight pulp from the strawberries used, ending with a hint of tart that cleanses the palate for more.
