#GoCarInvades: Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas.

image

To those who have requested for more GoCars in Sri Hartamas, we’ve heard you! For the past year, we’ve been serving the Mont Kiara community and now, you may pick up a GoCar at Mayfair Tower and Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas too.

While Sri Hartamas appears to be the soft-spoken sister to the ever-happening Mont Kiara, Plaza Damas and Hartamas Shopping Centre are the pulse of Sri Hartamas and picking up a GoCar here has never been so convenient.

We’ve explored around and here’s what we found:

1. Fuss-free Lunch Spot- The Kanteen Plus, Plaza Damas.

F-0-5, Plaza Damas, No. 60, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Indoor or outdoor? Your pick

Whether you’re up for western food or a simple Nasi Lemak, Kanteen Plus does not disappoint and it’s a rather popular lunch spot for nearby offices and residents and we can see why.

Their Nasi Lemak Sambal Sotong is one choice you won’t regret! Rice paired with crunchy nuts and fried anchovies, their squid sambal goes so well all together and it costs less than RM15 for a decent lunch.

So if you’re picking up a GoCar after lunch, why not try drop by for lunch?

2. Coffee, Cakes and Hangout: The Rubberduck (@rubberduckquack)

Rubberduck is a personal favourite and if you’ve visited them before, you’ll know what we mean. No stranger to frequent patrons, Katrina and Lin are the smiley people behind the success story of Rubberduck. Started off at a cute corner of Plaza Damas, the store saw the need to accommodate swarming patrons and now, their new space is so spacious that they had ventured into something they had always wanted to do before the birth of Rubberduck. What could it be? But first, coffee.

Get your caffeine fix here too! Whether to-go or dine in, cakes go really well with coffee.

Raspberry Almond Cake

Rich in flavour, the and light raspberry complements the moist almond cake really well. RM12 on the price tag, gotta try!

image
Mochi Cake

This RM6 Yorkshire pudding look-alike is a gluten free vanilla flavoured Mochi cake. Hard on the outside and soft on the inside, the vanilla filling has a moderate sweetness and it’s definitely safe for those who are counting calories.

Brownies, anyone?

Food made with love

“Rattan chair or sofa, these prints made us feel like we’re on a tropical holiday!”

Quack!

Let’s get Fit!: Aloha Cycle Club

Lot K-08B (Dorchester Service Apt.), Plaza Damas, Kuala Lumpur.

Brought to you by the same people from Rubberduck, the Aloha Cycle Club opened its doors early this year and the classes have been well-received by both local fitness enthusiasts and amateur indoor cyclists. Needless to say, this spinning studio is the brainchild of both fitness enthusiasts, Lin and Katrina

“It was something that we wanted to start like 10 years ago even before Rubberduck came about but we were held down by many other things.”
