Oh Cha Matcha

It’s raining matcha in OhChaMatcha, the latest to join the community of cafes and restaurants in TTDI Kuala Lumpur. The outlet is all about top quality matcha sourced from Uji, Japan. Expect nothing less than fine green tea prepared in artisanal ways like how they do it in Japan.

Lucky Coffee Bar

Tucked in the newly opened Kloe Hotel, Lucky Coffee Bar is a beautifully curated spot to chill or to have your morning fix alongside excellent brews, artisanal sandwiches, pastries and more.

Quan's Kitchen

Located inside the swankily new Four Points by Sheraton Kuala Lumpur in Chinatown, Quan’s Kitchen is the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant that centres on traditional culinary specialties ranging from your old school eggs and toasts, to the quintessential nasi lemak and noodles.
