CC in BB: Capitol Cafe in Bukit Bintang

Last month, we were at Halab Gate Shawarma (link here). Over the weekend, just across the main road, Jalan Sultan Ismail, we were at Capitol Cafe. 

In a lane behind Damascus Bukit Bintang and WOLO Kuala Lumpur is the Capitol Cafe.

How to get there

đź“Ť Address: 46, Jln Sultan Ismail, Bukit Bintang, 50250 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

The cafe is just a stone’s throw away from the Bukit Bintang MRT and monorail stations. 

If you’re taking the MRT, alight at Bukit Bintang station and head towards Entrance E. Then u-turn and then turn right towards Jalan Sultan Ismail. Then turn right towards the lane just before Maybank Bukit Bintang.  

If you’re taking the monorail, alight at Bukit Bintang station, cross the Bukit Bintang Crossing and walk up along Jalan Sultan Ismail. Then turn right towards the lane just before Maybank Bukit Bintang.  

Capitol Cafe

Capitol Cafe has a cozy and inviting interior design that’s perfect for a casual meal or a catch-up with friends. The cafe has a rustic vibe, with wooden tables and chairs, exposed brick walls, and vintage decorations. The ambiance is relaxed and laid-back, making it a great spot to unwind after a long day.

Capitol Cafe’s menu is a fusion of Western and Asian cuisine. One of the must-try dishes at Capitol Cafe is their signature nasi lemak. You can browse and download their menu here.

We had their Nasi Ayam Penyet, Hainanese Chicken Chop with Boiled Egg, HoGaSai Ping, and many others for lunch.

The nasi lemak was not the usual nasi lemak with ayam goreng. This nasi lemak is with ayam penyet. The ayam penyet is topped with breaded crusts.

As my friend quoted, “I’ve never had Hainanese chicken chop with boiled egg.” It is a new and good addition with boiled egg in the dish. The chicken chop sauce has an added eggy taste and protein.

Mix iced milo and iced coffee, and you get HoGaSai Ping.

Hainan Village Malayan Kopitiam in Megah Rise Mall

For frequent shoppers and diners in Taman Megah, of course Hainan Joy Cafe | Restoran Hainan Joy is no stranger. But just recently, another new “Hainan-themed” restaurant just opened it’s doors in SS24 Taman Megah.

Let’s welcome Hainan Village Malayan Kopitiam (Petaling Jaya). 

How to get there

Hainan Village is located in the newly opened mall – Megah Rise – in SS24 Taman Megah.

If you’re driving along Jalan SS 24/10 and Jalan SS 24/11, it is not hard to miss Hainan Village from outside.

It it a corner restaurant located on the ground floor at the north entrance of Megah Rise. It is split into 2 lots across each other.

đź“Ť Address: G-13A & 15, Megah Rise, 3, Jalan SS 24/9, Taman Megah, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Hainan Village Malayan Kopitiam

On Google, it describes itself as:

“Honoured as the “First Hainanese Vegetarian Kopitiam in Malaysia” by the Malaysia Book of Records in February 2022, Hainan Village Kopitiam preserves the love for the animals and the passion to share good, meat-free Hainanese food with everyone in Malaysia, regardless of faith or race. By fusing traditional taste of Kampung and modern cooking styles, complemented with spice-filled sauces, each and every dish served at Hainan Village Kopitiam is healthy, hearty and most importantly – absolutely delicious.”

From the outset, it looked like any other kopitiam in the mall. We were pleasantly surprised to discover that it was a kopitiam that served vegetarian food.

We ordered the below for our lunch.

Signature Hainan Roasted VChicken Rice

Looking for a vegetarian version of chicken rice, we had the Signature Hainan Roasted VChicken Rice. It is a delicious and satisfying meal that is also perfect for vegetarians and meat-lovers alike. The V stands for Vegetarian. The “vegetarian chicken” was beancurd. 

Signature Nasi Lemak With Rendang VMutton

Like any other nasi lemak, it had the sambal, ikan bilis (anchovies), kacang (peanuts), cucumber, egg, and nasi lemak. What’s different was the vegetarian mutton which, well, tasted like mutton and had potatoes.
