5 new restaurants in Kuala Lumpur to check out this October

2. Catcher in the Rye Cafe

The new kid on the Seksyen 17 block comes from the same minds as Taman Desa’s Wild Sheep Chase.

Its neutral-toned interior, featuring an abundance of natural light and leafy elements, is exactly the kind of cafe where you can unwind.

The menu features a wide variety of comfort foods, desserts – and good coffee.

Address: 605, Jalan 17/12, Seksyen 17, Petaling Jaya

Opening hours: 11am-7pm (Friday-Sunday)

3. Cureé

This cafe is worth exploring for two good reasons: Hokkaido-inspired soup curries for the soul and a Instagram-worthy interior you won’t want to leave.

It also has a few Japanese fusion breakfast items such as Japanese okonomiyaki (savoury pancake) waffles and a mashed avocado toast.

Address: 38, Jalan 1/77A Off Jalan Imbi, Jalan Changkat Thambi Dollah

Opening hours: 7.30am-3pm and 6pm-midnight (Monday-Thursday), 7.30am- 3pm and 6pm-late (Friday-Sunday)
