Miyakori Coffee opens second cafe in Johor Bahru City Square, JB
Miyakori Coffee in Bukit Indah was in our bucket list for cafes-to-go in JB due to its cute theme that made it stood out among the rest. We were pleasantly surprised to chance upon them yesterday in our routine monthly hop to JB.
Located beside the arcade at level 5, the café serves as a convenient point for all to fuel up in the midst of their gaming or shopping in the mall. The 50-seater café was decked in an all-white furbished with wooden furniture, giving it a clean and Zakka feel.
Menu was kept simple with tea, coffee, pastries and cakes. No mains was served here, unlike the Bukit Indah Miyakori.
As we had a filling chicken chop lunch at IT Roo Café earlier, we settled for the signature chocolate peanut cake and a cup of their hot latte – matcha latte as we had planned to get our usual caffeine fix at Old Town White Coffee – the mocha frenzy (RM9.80)
Signature Peanut Chocolate Cake (RM 13.90) – salty peanut butter with rich chocolate and with the cute bear art on the cake. The cake looked and tasted good, but we felt it could be better with a contrasting texture, like some pecan or nuts for a crunchy texture.
Matcha Latte Hot (RM 12.50) – We can’t but feel disappointed when it was served in a take-away cup. We thought that it would be served in a mug with the beary cute bear latte art that we have seen countless times on their Instagram geotag. Disappointment was deepened when the matcha latte tasted too milky and green tea taste was lacking strongly.
We guessed Starbucks at level 1 would be a better place for one of the better green tea latte around and their sinful decadent chocolate peanut butter stack.
The Kakigori, Cup Ice Flake (RM 16.90) seems to be a new item exclusive to this outlet and we look forward to try this interesting item the next time, not after some rounds of basketball and racings in the arcade!
