The Grumpy Cyclist @ Taman Tun Dr Ismail
A unique name for a cafe and I guess the name itself tells us that this cafe owner loves cycling. I heard a very good review about this cafe from my friends therefore me and my sister went there for dinner. The Grumpy Cyclist is located at TTDI, Petaling Jaya (Next to Namaste Indian Restaurant). The cafe serves Beverages, Cakes and a couple of main courses. We were welcomed by the staff at the entrance and he leads us to the cashier counter to order the foods. Yeah!! You have to order and pay at the counter. Once your order is done, they will serve the foods to your table. We ordered Gran Fondo, Pasta Di Bici and Mini Palkova. A couple of people occupied the cafe when we arrived at 7pm. The ambiance of the cafe was cool with bicycle hanging on the wall and tables with T-Shirts. They have indoor and outdoor (Smoking Area) seating area for the customer.
The Gran Fondo was gorgeous. A Plate of Toasted Bread, Bacon, Sausages, Baked Beans, Salad and beautiful Eggs creates the perfect choice for dinner. Baked bean was cooked with spices rather than served blend. The generous amount of vegetables was tossed with good Balsamic vinegar. I loved their dressings. Bacon was yummy and the sausages were boiled instead of fry. Healthy!! The guy who served the foods was so humble. He greeted us and explained to us about the food before serving it on the table.
The Gran Fondo @ RM 18.87
Pasta Di Bici was recommended by the staff. It looks small when it was served on our table, but I am full by the time I finished half of it. It was cooked perfectly with the spices. Best Aglio Olio I had recently. I liked it.
Pasta Di Bici @ RM 15.09
Since we were seated next to the dessert counter, I was really attracted to the Mini Palkova. Therefore, I add on that for our dessert after the dinner. Beautiful crust with cream, fresh fruit and cumin seeds. It is just to die for. Every mouthful was heaven and it always a perfect choice to end a meal with dessert.
It was a good dinner for us. Friendly & humble service, delicious foods and reasonable price. Sure, drop by again.
