A spin off from famed The Red Beanbag in Publika mall, since the owner worked previously as chef there. Above is entrance of cafe

all day breakfast menu


entree menu


pasta, side dishes and juices menu


coffee/chocolate and dessert menu


tea selection


macchiato coffee, RM7.90 quite good


A-Maize-Ing Fritters, corn fritters, RM17.90, it look like pancake and not like a good corn fritter


flip it over, i sure didn’t look good from this side as well, sure enough, it is far from amazing, very¬†doughy and flour taste, really terrible


Overnight oat is really good and a healthy choice, RM13.90


a very filling salmon dish, thick cut salmon with tempura avocado, sure to fill u up, at a reasonable RM27.90


Metal Box signature baked egg, done perfectly, RM18.90 the egg is cooked just right, and with good blend of vegetable and meat within, better than Red Beanbag version which i find is too meaty and of too much sausage


Refreshing roma tomato salad with fresh mozzarella, RM14.90


Salted caramel crumble, RM14.90, the apple is soaked in salted caramel which i find is too too sweet and the texture is odd, almost like pickled fruit which is very firm and hard-jellied-like. And that is not crumble, i don’t mind the presentation if it taste good, but i felt the crumble-cookie has an¬†artificially strong vanilla/almond flavor and doesn’t taste good at all. The only saving grace for this dish is the cookie crumble under the vanilla ice cream, for some reason, cookie crumb with vanilla ice cream is really good.

Overall, do visit this cafe for their signature baked egg which is perfectly executed.
