Located in one of the busiest areas of Klang Valley, Pokok KL offers a sweet escape from city life. The cafe offers the urban crowd a whole new and refreshing dining experience whilst surrounded by the beauty and calm of nature.
The “glasshouse” effect has been the main highlight, eliciting “oohs” and “ahhs” from cafe hoppers and foodies alike the moment they spot this restaurant.
Already one of the trendiest brunch spots in Klang Valley, Pokok KL has done a great job in terms of design and architecture, with emphasis on its floor-to-ceiling glass doors that enhance its simplistic yet aesthetic values.
Food off the menu is prepared fresh from the kitchen, from its soups and bites, to its brunch and mains selections.
For a cafe that has been operating for only three months now, the menu is quite extensive, offering its patrons options such as breakfast platters, pastas, salads, the all-time-favourite Nasi Lemak, as well as croissants, pies and other pastries.
While the Nasi Lemak Platter was rather tempting, so was the Big Breakfast with Poached Eggs and sourdough toast paired with mouth-watering chicken gourmet sausages and tender turkey ham. This also came with juicy grilled vine tomatoes, button mushrooms, and potatoes.
The portion was fairly large, enough to keep you feeling full and contented throughout the day.
The Carbonara Pasta was also good. The thick strands of spaghetti were lightly cloaked in creamy egg yolk, accompanied with beef bacon and perfectly cooked poached egg, expertly stepping up the carbonara game.
Finally, quench your thirst under the shady trees with either an Iced Cappuccino or refreshing Passion Peach drink – either will blow your mind.
Overall, Pokok KL is a perfect sanctuary for those who wish to escape the endless bustle of the city.
The only drawback is that the dishes here are slightly overpriced. Nonetheless, the food is well-cooked and delicious, while the dizzying array of menu options are a pure delight.
