Cuppa Kaffe, Subang Jaya Food Review

Cuppa Kaffe is a cafe located near Inti College, Subang where the street is already teeming with cafes and eateries specifically catered to draw the college crowd more as their customers.
It's quite a quiet, cozy atmosphere in the evening when we were there on a Friday night to try out some of their delicacies that they have to dish out. Not sure if lunch time contains the same atmosphere.

The cafe is designed to make it a conducive study environment with free wifi, comfy chairs, excellent coffee and snacks also full meals so that you don't have to leave this place to adjourn to another place to eat while studying.
There's 2 unique Cuppa Kaffe drinks that I can spot and that is the Iced Blended Oreo Mocafe and Iced Blended Oreo Chocolate.
Although I wouldn't say it's an original creation using Oreos since McDonald's first came up with their Oreo McFlurry, but this is definitely the first for me to try Oreos with coffee/chocolate mixed up making into an iced blended drink. The taste is somehow expected how it would taste like without any surprise but at least it's something that's available on the menu to quench that chocolatey desire.

We started off with one of their best dish which is their Seafood Carbonara Pasta:
Though I'm not a fan of seafood but in this instance the seafood did bring a good flavor to the Carbonara sauce and the pasta which I can say that it's their best dish that I've tried.

I can't say the same for the Beef Bacon Carbonara Pasta, though:
I love bacon. Beef bacon not as much as pork bacon but I'm known to always go for Beef Bacon Carbonara more than any other pastas that are available on any menu and my top favorite Beef Bacon Carbonara Pasta is STILL at Pizza Uno, Bandar Utama Centrepoint. But for this particular case, sad to say that the beef bacon carbonara is not as delicious as I imagined it to be. In fact, I would say that their seafood carbonara pasta is better by miles over this and the irony of my situation is I don't even like seafood that much but I love bacon. I hope they will improve on this one.

This is the Seafood Marinara Pasta:
Somehow, I find their Marinara sauce a bit on the weird side for me and it's hard for me to take it for more than 3 bites. But then again, I'm more of a Carbonara guy than a Marinara guy.

This dish here is called the Peperoncino with Squids Pasta:
It's spicy with the dried chili in there and you can definitely taste a lot of herbs in it trying to go to the Aglio E Olio route ie garlic and oil. It's ok for me. Priced at RM12.90. In fact, all pastas are priced at RM12.90.

Other than pasta, we tried the Chicken Maryland:
Also the Chicken Chop:
This is not bad available at RM12.90 at the time of writing.

Smoked Salmon Salad:
And Chicken Chop Fried Rice:
The chicken chop goes really well with the fried rice and the great portion of egg. A good dish as well. Priced at RM12.90 currently.

And to end it all of the main course, the beef ribs:
By this time, I was already having some beer. LOL. The beef ribs taste good which the beer enhanced it but a bit too tough.

When we were stuffed to the gills, they brought desserts for us to savor.

The previous day, before this food review, was actually my birthday. So they decided to present the Hazelnut Truffle Cake as my birthday cake instead:
Among all the cakes that we had there, this actually is the nicest according to my taste buds.
Others were nice to go with coffee and had great decorations to them as well:

Thanks to the owners and staff of Cuppa Kaffe for being so obliging which makes my food review with them a pleasant experience. I hope that their customers do get the same experience I get.

The full address of Cuppa Kaffe is:
63, 1st floor, SS15/8A, Subang Jaya, Selangor, 47500 (Opposite Asia Cafe).

Aglio Olio at Rm12.90 sounds like a good deal for me! p/s: i am a huge fan of aglio olio :P

Actually, it's not Aglio E Olio although it's trying to create a similar appeal to it. Be warned that this version is spicier than normal, has more herb taste to it than the simple Aglio E Olio. Overall, I find it okay.
