Photo Crafts: The Cafe, Kota Damansara.


After doing a quick survey on the Internet, I found a cute place to go for dinner (a few weeks back).

Lots of cafes and restaurants keep popping up in the Kota Damansara area. Since it's quite near, and mom specified that we wouldn't be going for expensive food that day, I suggested this artsy cafe named...
The Cafe.

It was actually just a shop selling analog cameras (holga, fisheye and lomo, to name a few) but the owner decided to open a cafe there too due to popular demand. Basically, The Cafe is on the first floor and the shop selling the cameras, Photo Crafts, is on the second floor.

The Cafe's is filled with photographs and polaroids, making the place quite nostalgic. Anyway, the interior looks quite budget but the concept works for me. 

It's a really warm and photo-friendly place. Analog cameras are just so beautiful! And I couldn't hide my excitement, even mom could see that.

There are also lots of cameras on display. They sell film too!

*here, have a peek at the Wi-Fi password, you know you want it*
Oh lookie, a roll of film! Actually it's just toothpicks but the film really is adorable.

A hot cup of latte to start off the meal.

Meh. Bro fooling around.

How often do you get to try a Cili Padi Aglio Olio (RM16.90)? Even though it was cili padi, it wasn't too spicy and I love it. The prawns were also quite fresh and the mushrooms, yum yum. The dish was a little dry though. Other than that, it was superb!

Next on the table came the Smoked Salmon Pasta (RM12.90). The smoked salmon was delicious, unlike some other places which have smoked salmon that taste like not-so-fresh raw salmon. 
And to be honest, it's not easy to find a Smoked Salmon Pasta for that price.

Also, one of the house specials, the 120 Chicken Burger (RM16.90)
Top to bottom: Sauteed mushrooms, egg banjo, sliced pineapple and tomatoes (which are somewhat invisible in this photo), cheese, and a chicken patty. Oh, and a slice of fried bread instead of the normal bun. Notice that something is missing? Yes, there is no top bun! It's because the dish is named after the 120mm film used for analog cameras. Quite creative, huh?

Ham and Egg Roll (I'm still terrible with names), served with nachos. Frankly, the rolls are a little bland and not really that good .-.

Funny thing, we had our appetizers after the main courses, mainly because there weren't too many cake choices that evening.
Their Cheesy Wedges lack the cheesy taste. I still prefer the ones at Big Hug. Well, there's always room for improvement. :)  It is crispy if not cheesy, so there are still points.

Now, to the second floor.

Sis kept nagging for me to buy an instax mini but well.. limited funds.

I'd love to have one of these camera bags, especially the blue and yellow tartan one. *hint hint*

Another visit is a must! Probably after my SUEC's and well, maybe a reward for myself after a hectic year... maybe get myself something portable and convenient? hmm...
Or, I could always come back for the food! and night photography isn't my forte :x
