Theme Café and Kopitiam are sprouting out from everywhere. But a beauty café is something new. We were invited to preview Malaysia first beauty café i.e. Isme Beauty Café which is located at Lot B-1-1, 1st Floor, Bintang Fairlane, 23, Jalan Walter Grenier – Just behind Park Royal Hotel in Jalan Sultan Ismail.
The overall environment and ambience in this café is very relaxing and nice place to chill with friends and associates. From the café you can sit next to the window while having a view of the busy street life down below sipping your coffee while enjoying your delicious deserts. The café is very well insulated from the outside noise and you are able to converse easily without any trouble of raising your voice.
So, what you get from a beauty café, well everything about beauty of course. Here you can shop for your cosmetics and at the same time chill with your buddies as they served nice cakes and coffees. One of the most important selling features of IsMe is the fact that all the food serves here are scrutinized by their in-house food nutritionist i.e. to ensure that all the ingredients used are low fat.
But then again, all nice food are usually high fat food, so here comes the challenge of whether such type of food i.e. cheese cake can be low fat and delicious at the same time.
We were indeed surprised upon tasting our first bite of the Blueberry Cheese Cake, it has the strong cheese flavoured, moist and the blueberry topping which was not too sweet and lumpy.
Next, we had the Mango Mille Crepe Cake. Baking crepe cakes is a very time consuming process and requires a very patient baker to put up with all the layers of crepes. You have to bake each layer and lay upon it one layer at a time. The perfect mango puree and cream was very well balanced and again it was not too sweet and very nice to be taken with the coffee of your choice.
For chocolate cake lovers, the next cake would be definitely be your choice, which is Brownie Top Up With Vanilla Ice-Cream. Perfect blend although you have to be quick to eat this cake else all the Ice-Cream will begin to melt.
Tiramisu – another great offering here. The chef had used a slightly strong brandy and you can immediately taste this from the first scope. It leaves you wanting for the next scope. Don’t remember that Tiramisu tastes so nice for a long time. Most Tiramisu offered elsewhere are usually quite plain.
For the main dishes, we had the Creamy Mushroom Spaghetti. Although it was a little less creamy but taste wise, the sauce has strong mushroom flavors in it. Nice for people who are worried about those much of meat for lunch or for those who just wanted a light lunch.
Next on, is the coffee. There are the specialty coffee serves here, but one of the main difference is that the barista have been trained in the art of coffee décor. He was patiently decorating some of the coffees for us which are as follows
Isme Signature Coffee
Affagato – for me it is another standout desserts served here. The right balance of vanilla ice cream and the espresso shot at the bottom of the glass was simply overwhelming as the blending was just perfect. You can taste the lingering strong coffee taste right into your throat.
If coffee is not your cup of tea, you may want to be a little more adventurous to try out the Gynostemma Tea – a healthy and refreshing tea.
Overall, it has been a great outing having to have such nice cakes in the middle of bustling city center although it is a little challenge to get parking at these areas. Well, the next time you need to chill out with some friends or just relax with a piece of cakes and coffee before heading home, you can check out this cafe.
