Coffee Smith is the new talk of the town located at Maritime Piazza along Karpal Singh Drive/ Jelutong Promenade. Coffee Smith is a franchise restaurant from Taiwan, serving their famous Artisan coffee and western-italian food. The industrial themed interior design is definitely on of the star factors. I love the concrete finishings and the “tong” converted arm chairs. My fellow Instagrammers out there, here is a place with much photo ops! Be it the vintage telephones, the 3D painted clock tower or the assorted old school light bulbs. The press ad styled menu is a nice finishing touch. Two thumbs up for the food plating as well
Coffee Smith’s MUST TRY would be the Artisan coffee (picture below). I confess that I have this habit of ordering coffee black and then shyly going back to request for a cup of milk. Just because they can never get the RIGHT combination! With Artisan coffee, I now have the luxury of my own version of the perfect coffee. The first small yellow cup is the espresso, the larger cup in the middle would be the center of attention black coffee. Finally you get a mini jug of milk. Be it a latte, cappuccino or an espresso, mix and taste away!
Salad & Soup / Dessert of the day (Blueberry Cheese Cake)
In their Add-Ons, is their salad with strawberry sauce and radish soup. Odd combination for our liking but the portion is about right for 1 person. The blueberry cheese cake is an awesome wrap up for the set. Not too cheesy in taste and the texture is well blended with the choco powder sprinkled on top.
Grilled Cuttlefish with Cuttlefish Risotto (Cuttlefish Sauce) (RM26.00)
One of their specialties would be the grilled sotong with black “ang moh thick porridge” or otherwise known as the girlled cuttlefish with cuttlefish risotto. If like the mint taste, this would be highly recommended to you. The risotto is cooked with long beans mixed together into the cuttlefish sauce. While the chewy cuttlefish is nicely grilled with a touch of mint sauce and capsicum on top.
Garlic White Wine Clams Noodle (RM19.00)
If you prefer an aglio e olio style, you can opt for the garlic white wine. The fettuccine is well-cooked and chewy in taste with a light spread of cheese. The kitchen is very generous with the portion of the clams. It is a MUST TRY
