If there’s one thing we noticed about MANA is the juxtaposition of neon and concrete grey interiors. While the menu boasts an extensive range of Japanese rice bowls, the coffee selection is worth checking out, from local-style kopi to Hong Kong-style teh. Our recommendations? The Grilled Unagi bowl and Tamagoyaki Mentai bowl. Check out the menu here.

This new cafe in KL serves buttery croissants from the classics to exquisite flavours, like Duck & Cheese, Mango Sticky Rice, Virgin Mojito and Truffle Tuna. If you’re having a hard time choosing from the menu, get your hands on their Tanned Box filled with the specialities. Order for delivery here.
