Lepaq Lepaq @ Jalan Ceylon Kuala Lumpur

Wednesday, December 16, 2015 2 Comments A+ a-


After looking through the website, We find out there is a new place around our office area at Jalan Ceylon. The café name caught our attention. Lepaq Lepaq is actually a modern twist word from the actual Malay wording of ‘Lepak’ (hang out) loitering or loafing around. The café does not have a signboard. Parking is still available if you are early for lunch, but I doubt there is enough space to park because it is actually on the roadside and you can try your luck to park your car at the lane behind. A very nice two storey building with beautiful greenery landscape for you to enjoy a quiet moments with your friends while enjoying a cup of coffee. We wanted to try a new place so we drive to Lepaq Lepaq which offer Set lunch menu and now they are doing Buy One Free One promotion on all the set lunch.   

No drinking water is provided. That answer really gives us a shocked on our faces when we ask about it.  Usually, drinking water is available when we go to any café but here you need to purchase a cotton candy cloud coffee (which claim to be their signature drinks) and you will be provided with a cup of water. Or you can purchase the imported drinking water for RM 9! That is enough to make us upset. How much does it cost to provide a complimentary drinking water to customer?? Sigh.
They sell bakery also. Agree with my friend that the bread does not look appealing


We are seated at the upper level with plenty of seats. In fact an ideal place for birthday gathering because they have a huge seating space and relaxing atmosphere. Wooden tables and chairs with different designs in each corner. We waited excitedly for our food to be served.  When the mushroom soup was served on our table, again our face turns. How come the portion is so small??
Great time together with my colleagues
Set lunch menu that changes every day I guess
Unique
Mushroom Soup RM 13. The portion of the soup is just half of the bowl and The presentation of the food is not impressive for all of us. We paid for RM 13 to get a small bowl of mushroom soup with non crusty bread on top. Disappointing!

Freshly Picked Garden Salad RM 25
One giant bowl of fresh green salad with three types of vegetables and we can choose the option of 3 choices of salad dressing – Caesar, Thousand Island and Balsamic Vinaigrette
Big bowl of salad but only 3 types of vegetables. NOTHING ELSE. VERY VERY UPSET! Salad dressing is so little. 

Herb Grilled Chicken Breast RM 25. Accompanied with sautéed potatoes and vegetables along with house mushroom sauce. The chicken meat is tender and moist. But again look at the portion. Just too little for that price charged!

Pesto Grilled Chicken &  Mushroom Spaghetti RM 23. Small portion as well and too much of olive oil. Simple and comfort food.


Pan Seared Dory Fish Served with mashed potatoes and sautéed vegetables RM 26 My friend complained that the fish is not fresh. For myself I enjoy the smooth mashed potatoes.
Refreshing cold drinks
Cotton-Candy Cloud Coffee RM 13. Some called it Rainy Day Coffee. Almost every table ordered this and also their special rainbow cotton candy desserts. We also eager to try this out since it does look attractive. But the drawback is the coffee is not aromatic and not served hot. There are no fragrance of the coffee and it was not impressive to us when we take a sip of the coffee taste. It is totally tasteless and watery even though the cotton candy already drop inside the coffee.
Cloudy cotton candy which melted very slow and make a mess everywhere. As a result the cup is all sticky at every corner and hard to hold the handle.

Hot Cappuccino RM 10



Beautiful? Creative? Maybe. But not for me. This was their best seller cake but it was not appetizing and the combination is pretty weird.Nasi lemak Cheese Cake for RM15 is far too expensive. The green layer taste like lemongrass with glutinous rice and creamy in the middle while on the bottom part are like the chocolate cookies texture. Few pieces of peanuts inside and anchovies on the top of the cake.Salty, spicy and sweet taste. Seriously, this cake have the unpleasant flavour.
Service is slow and not responsive. Total Damage RM 139 for four pax without satisfaction from the food and the portion. We move to the Weld for a cup of real aromatic Coffee from Starbucks.

Will I visit again to this place? No for me please!

Lousy and slow service. Ordered for half an hour then the waiter comes and tell us kitchen close at 1PM and that our order did not make it. And then, tada, it's served on the table.

By 1PM, no more rainy day coffee or rainy day chocolate. The waiter is not attentive enough.
We waited at the table without knowing what has ordered and what is not, until the bills come.

They told us that there is no more rainy coffee or chocolate but other table that comes later than us, they manage to order that.

Total disaster, would suggest not to come here on public holidays or weekend.

I heard about the bad service in their FB page too. For myself, I saw the staff is blur and they are not sure on what we have ordered. They are not attentive to clear our tables and I need to call them few time to get their attention. The coffee is tasteless as I mentioned and not worth a cent to visit again anyway. Thanks for viewing
