So one of my close friends and I were over at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL) to try out their Ramadan and Syawal specials, and we are pretty much in love with the food…..
For this month of Ramadan, in preparation for Hari Raya Aidilfitri, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is serving up a super tempting array of sweet and spicy treats, from the aromatic Turkish Mocha to the mouth-watering Per-chick Sandwich and Opah Rendang Pie!
“This is a very meaningful time of year and, in the midst of all the changes we have faced in the past months, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® hopes to provide our customers with comforting flavours that remind us of home and family. No matter where you are or how long it has been, this is the time to reconnect with our loved ones, by having long conversations over a great cup of tea or coffee, and celebrating all the small blessings we enjoy,” said Fiona Rodrigues, Director of Marketing & Development, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Malaysia. “As we look forward to better days, let us appreciate what we have today, while enjoying the flavours of traditional Malaysian food, fused with aromatic spices, that provide the perfect counterpoint to decadent chocolate and sweet notes of pandan and Gula Melaka.”
Start off with the Opah Rendang Pie (RM14.80), with traditional chicken rendang baked into a yummy crust, or the smoky, chargrilled Per-chick Sandwich (RM20.50), oozing with creamy percik sauce and layered with slices of hard-boiled eggs for a truly hearty meal.
To wash it down, savour the exotic Turkish Mocha as an Ice Blended® drink (small RM16.50, regular RM18), hot or iced latte (small RM16, regular RM17.50), or cold-brewed (small RM12.80, regular RM13.80), for a more intense caffeine kick. For a light, clean finish, try whole-leaf Wakoucha Mariko tea (RM9.60 per cup, RM12.50 per pot) with its smooth, woody notes.
Finally, what’s a meal without dessert? Fans of The Straits cake will rejoice as this all-time favourite makes a comeback – don’t miss the chance to enjoy this fluffy pandan cake laced with Gula Melaka, cream and mascarpone cheese (RM12.95 per slice, RM55 for petite, RM129.30 for a whole cake). For chocolate lovers, it can only be The 72%, a luscious 72% dark chocolate cake with layers of almonds and pralines (RM15.95 per slice, RM159 for a whole cake).
For more petite bites, try The Sea Salt Mac (RM10), a chunky soft cookie stuffed with dark chocolate and macadamia nuts, Sour Cherry Muffin (RM7.50 or RM13 with a small cup of Today’s Brew/Hot Tea), full of tart, luscious cherries, or the yummy The Raya Cookie (RM10).
Last but not least, check out the elegant new Tétouan tumblers in black or white (RM78) – the perfect accessory to carry along! I have one now and am sooooo in love with it
