Food Review – Flingstones Cafe in SS15, Subang Jaya
Picked up Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers’ Sharon Loh aka Spicy Sharon (you can read her blog here – http://www.spicysharon.com/) only really sunny Saturday afternoon, and we headed over to SS15 in Subang Jaya to meet up with MHB’s Kelly Siew and her boyfriend. Hosting us there was Flingstones Cafe (no there’s no spelling error – it’s meant to be Flingstones) which is located right opposite the main gate of Taylor’s College in SS15.
Another breakfast/ hipster cafe you say? Well that’s what I thought at first but then I checked out their Facebook page and found out that they have much more than that and they have the magic ingredient that I cannot refuse – PORK!
Well so happened it’s Star Wars season as the movie just opened (I was one of the first to watch the movie in Malaysia having caught the press screening and you can read my review here – https://timchew.net/2015/12/16/star-wars-the-force-awakens-episode-7/) so Flingstones had two (2) special drinks to commemorate the occasion!
Put the hot milk in as soon as this drink is served to you otherwise it’s going to have a hard time melting the Darth Vader ice cubes.
This one was nice! I liked the rich chocolaty taste which got milder as the Stormtrooper ice cubes melted.
Here’s a look at the rest of the dishes we had. Now you might notice some of the spelling of the dishes is rather odd and it’s not a typo but rather Flingstones’ method of having some differentiation from the other cafes which have popped up like mushrooms over the past two (2) years. It’s not like that food is anywhere near the regular fare at other cafes either. Things here are different…porky different!
A salad with bacon? Oh yes! A healthy little starter served with sesame dressing but I don’t think it’s filling enough to be a meal on it’s own.
Oh yeah! Now this is an awesome “nasi lemak” indeed! The sambal was so fantastic I told them to bottle it and sell in jars as I would surely buy it. The pork belly…oh my…lovely!
Order the full rack! The price difference is only RM5.00 and you can always share this with someone. Trust me! 1/2 rack is not enough! The ribs are tender and goes well with the rather sweet sauce. The sweet potato fries were crispy and were a welcome departure from the normal French fries.
My food bloggers take their blogging very seriously!
The staple of pretty much every cafe serving breakfast food dishes, what I liked most about the ” Big Bang Breakfast” at Flingstones comes with two (2) crispy hash browns, a large sausage and PORK bacon!
I’m not really one for century eggs but I do love lap cheong with rice and oh my…chu yao char and bacon with it as well? Well if you’re going porky you might as well go all the way! This has to be my all time favourite fried rice!
Oh wow…sinful but very delicious! The combination of chu yao char and pork bacon with pasta is really inspired! But make sure you go exercise after eating this one!
Another East meets West creation, this dish was spicy with some sweetness in the sauce as well. Rather unusual combination which oddly enough actually tastes fine if you like kung pow chicken.
A mini little latte – for those who don’t want the regular sized one. The coffee is their house blend which is adequately robust which is how I like my coffee.
This was a seasonal drink that might make an appearance next Christmas. Cute drink though!
Nice and refreshing and they come in a variety of flavours!
The Gula Melaka included in huge amounts which is good because I feel that sugar in coffee really destroys the taste. This is one for people who like their coffee sweet.
A modified affogato with the inclusion of the coffee jelly. I happen to like affogatos (the only sweet coffee I’ll drink) and I thought this one was pretty good. Probably due to the Haagen Daz ice cream which made it deliciously rich and creamy.
Not bad. Wished there was brandy inside though.
The girls enjoyed this one. I’m not really one for sweet desserts but I thought the mixture of flavours and textures were nice.
This one was highly unusual. Turned out nice though and the girls happily ate it. I took a bit and I actually liked the textures of this very unorthodox cake!
Sharon on the other hand, is single! Any guy out there who thinks they can handle her spicy nature?
Flingstones Cafe sets itself apart from the hundreds of other ” breakfast cafes” in the Klang Valley by having food and beverage items that are anything but normal. The fact that it serves pork is also a factor that makes this cafe quite popular among students on weekdays and among other customers on weekends.
In fact, the cafe attracts all sorts of crowds. While we were there, we saw families having their lunch, couples having a meal, and friends hanging out. And really, these days, where else can you get delicious pork ribs at RM33? I’ll definitely pop by again if I’m in the area.
