It’s time to show some support for your local businesses by ordering from these new eateries for a lovely afternoon delight.

We may be stuck in another lockdown, but that doesn’t mean it should stop you from doing what you love. If exploring new places and indulging in the best meals are your favourite past-time, don’t fret you can still do just that from the comfort of your home. With takeaways and deliveries available, you can still explore the deliciously curated menu by ordering in from these eateries. The best part is that once you’ve established your favourites, you can finally drop in once it’s safe to do so – they’re pretty Instagram-worthy too. Scroll down below and be prepared to mark down your places to try.

Poppy Kat Cafe

If you live in Cheras, the Poppy Kat cafe could be your go-to hangout spot once FMCO is over, of course. The sunset-hued atmosphere with minimal arches has the most stunning interior for those who love a good photo-op. While you can’t dine in just yet, why not have some of their pastries and coffee delivered for breakfast to kickstart the day? The cafe also sells a wide selection of bagel spreads with a Croffle Croque Monsieur that’s on our list to try. Be sure to check out their MCO breakfast sets too.

BeanGood

Need a little pick-me-up? Go ahead and order from BeanGood, where their specialities in creamy tarts – from Orange Curd to Strawberry Creme, French Chocolate Almond tart, and more – will guarantee a spot in your heart for life. We have our eyes set on the tasty swirl of the Strawberry Creme tart. While you’re there, you can even order from their food menu for rice and pasta dishes to have for lunch while you’re WFH.

Soulbyrd

If you’ve been on the hunt for American soul food, you can officially call the operation off as Soulbyrd is finally in PJ. Inspired by the Southern delicacies from New Orleans to Nashville, you can expect a crispy yet delicious buttermilk marinade of various poultry delights. You’ve got the wings, drumettes, juicy chicken sandwiches, and more ranging from the six spice levels to enjoy with a kick. Their homemade sauces are great dipping additions to have to make your overall experience a fulfilling one.

Bröom Artisan Bakery

There’s nothing bread and pastries can’t do to cure those Monday blues. Bröom Artisan is the latest joint in PJ that made it onto our wishlist this month. While their mouthwatering pastries, including croissants, macaroon and tarts, are a hit in the bakery section, their #LunchAtHome specials are great to explore if you’re not in the mood to cook at home. Trust us – you’re in for a treat when these hearty meals are delivered to your doorstep.

Big Leaf BLR

Don’t you miss the simple things like enjoying a banana leaf meal? Well, you can bring the whole experience home by ordering from Big Leaf BLR. Although it may not be served on a banana leaf, at least the joy of having this at home will satisfy your tastebuds for now. Go ahead and check them out on Grab and FoodPanda.
