Malaysia Selangor Uptown Damansara

Ecole P @ Damansara Uptown sports a charming back-to-school theme, serving both Malaysian dishes (some with a twist) and Western dishes.  Going to Ecole P will definitely conjure up familiar memories of your good old school days !

The times tables welcome you at the entrance – they don’t look so intimidating now once we are out of school !

Most of the cafe’s tables are upcycled from old and graffitied school tables.

The balcony is the designated “classroom” with blackboards, polka dot curtains, notice boards and vintage hot water flasks.

These ice gems are served as starters (actually, there was more cookies but hands dug into the bowl faster than my camera…)

Ecole P serves a variety of coffees, smoothies, mocktails and teas; to be specific, “TEAcher drinks”.  Some of your favorite teachers (or not so favorite teachers) might be on the list – Maths TEAcher, Arts TEAcher, Discipline TEAcher, etc.

This one is the “Geography TEAcher” (RM 9) – comprising of Earl Grey, berries, and sugar syrup in a tiny milk bottle.

The school bags hanging on each table are not solely for decoration purposes.

They also hold pencil boxes just like the good old days, but only that the pencils are replaced with utensils.

The Coke & Sprite Chicken Wings (RM 13.90)  come in a metal, two-tiered tiffin carrier, the dark ones braised in Coke while the white ones braised in Sprite, inheriting two kinds of sweetness from the respective drinks.

The seaweed fried rice in claypot is a healthy concoction with seaweed, mushrooms, carrots and mesquite-smoked chicken slices; flavorful with every mouthful (RM 16).

We like the Seafood Linguine (RM 21.90) with a burst of flavors in curry leaves, chili flakes and a refreshing squeeze of lemon.

Intriguingly, the incorporation of nasi lemak into creme brulee (RM 10.90) creates a world of wonders.  The savory dessert consists of coconut-milk-infused custard topped with anchovies, peanuts and cucumber; accompanied with a berry-based savory chili sauce.  It’s definitely peculiar to be eating nasi lemak creme brulee this way.  Ecole P is worth visiting just to eat this savory creme brulee alone but it might not be everyone’s cup of tea.

Ecole P cleverly uses exercise books as their menu.  Other items on the menu include triple baked egg (RM 14.90), roti canai burrito (RM 11.90), chicken tandori schinitzel (RM 17.90), fish a la Thai (RM 18.90), vegetarian dishes (RM 15.90) and waffles (RM 14.90).
