The Front Door at Grocer's Inn - Jalan Sultan, Chinatown
The Front Door at Grocer's Inn is right smack in Chinatown which I haven't been to in ages. It's a cafe and backpackers hostel housed in one of Chinatown's really old buildings. It opened some time late last year and it's currently running on their soft launch menu but it is enough keep you busy with. The inside is nothing fancy really, kept very much to the original interior and all round minimal with the decor.
The most interesting to try from the menu are The Front Door Signature Toasts which is basically toast with different combinations of toppings, mostly tried and tested ones. I tried the Pesto-Grilled Chicken-Caramelised Orange, Mozarella-Green Apple-Salted Caramel and Pizza Sauce-Mozarella-Beef Pepperoni-Fresh Basil. They were good except for the green apple one, I couldn't really taste the salted caramel. The menu lists seven other choices. The toasts go for RM6 - 1 slice, RM18 - 3 slices and RM25 - 5 slices. These also look great in pictures.
The Prawn Aglio Olio (RM17) had good flavour but was just too oily. Coffee wise, it depends on who makes it, it could be either good or just average, Cappuccino (RM9). This is according to the friend who's been there before. I had the Rose with French Vanilla tea (RM7), they use Dilmah Exceptional so that was good. It's just a nice place to just chill out at.
