Container cafe have been mushrooming in Klang Valley and this new concept is the idea of shipping the container that's housed inside. We visited MetalCube 1008 Cafe & Bistro, being the first container cafe in Kepong Menjalara. It was indeed eye catching of converted cargo containers which was placed at the corner end. The staff is preparing the food inside in this small open concept kitchen.

The entrance was welcoming with entirely DIY decoration and interior designed by the owner himself . He is very enthusiastic about food and introduced us few of the varieties Western food here. The mouth watering menu are salad, pasta, burgers, combo meal with lamb meat, chicken chop and sausages, cakes, and of course the tempting coffee!

They are not here just to cook for them self, it's the joy and passion of cooking for them to cook for others.For them, cooking is not just a profession. Cooking is a lifestyle.

I was impressed with the interior design, with wood wall design and touched up with some rustic style feel. Every nook and corner of the cafe is aesthetically designed and crafted beautifully.

Stylish and spacious seating to cater for large group dining capacity especially for birthday, company events, annual dinner or simple anniversary celebration.
