Kuala Lumpur Malaysia Solaris Mont Kiara

I’ve passed LewisGene Espresso Cafe a few times in Solaris Mont Kiara and somehow always thought it’s a franchise cafe because of it’s name – but it’s not ! The moment we stepped in, we immediately loosened up in this cafe with personality.

Lewis Gene Solaris Mont Kiara 3 There is an extensive list of coffee on the menu, from the classic black coffee to the highly priced wild luwak coffee, in a wide range of RM 6.90 to RM 69.90.   Our Toraja Black (RM 9.90) was crazily intense – so strong I still felt it in my head 30 minutes afterwards.

The kahlua coffee (RM 18.90) is topped with a mountain of cream and sprinkled with coffee powder and a few pieces of coffee beans – it’s double the intensity (and double the price too) with the alcoholic punch.

LewisGene Cafe has a good range of loose tea leaves selection as well.

My panini is a substantial portion with plenty of everything  – lettuce, spinach, tomato, onions and eggs.  (I wonder how many eggs the chef used to make this ? It just seems like an awful lot of eggs in this panini!) It’s not overdosed with sandwich dressings but it has an adequate amount of mayonnaise and a lightly smoky sauce.  The panini reminds me of O’Brien’s sandwiches, only that this one is ultra-thick and much more filling.

The panini is RM 24.90 – pricey, but good thing is, it comes with floral tea in a set.

The chicken panini is just as satisfactory, and comes with tea too.

    ‘ My blood type is coffee’ lol.
    Not me because I’m a (traditional blends) tea gal myself but I think we can all think of some one in our lives who counts the bean as fuel.
    Nice quirky outfit here. I like that they include a biscuit with a cuppa. Always worth an extra point to me!
