Closer Kitchen & Espresso Bar at Mutiara Damansara has built a reputation amongst the cafehoppers and food instagrammers out the ambiance: lots of sunlight, casual vibe; and the easy-going photogenic dishes (everything that I would approve to be instagram worthy).

 

 

With enough reasons to check them out, it’s no wonder taking a shot with no diners in it can be quite a challenge (I spent quite some time waiting for such opportunity). Despite the one page menu, the place is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or even brunch because one can easily find something to satisfy with the availability of breakfast items all day long.

From breakfast platters to pastas, their killer brunch and breakfast menu also include eclectic creations. A range of easy salads for the healthy and clean eating practitioner, and even some less obvious choice such as the Citrus Wafu Garden (RM16). The fresh mix of zesty dressing in textural legumes Japanese cucumber, silken tofu with mandarin orange and seaweed was a cooling and delicious combination although I had my reservations if seaweed and mandarin oranges are congruent – not what I fancy. But When Duck Meets Lychee (RM 20), they promise an infinitely satisfaction, with cranberry walnut bread sandwiching a pile of pulled duck with special marmalade sauce and lychee. I am only grateful it wasn’t dry and hard.

There are traditional dishes, such as The XL Breakfast (RM 32) plus some more unusual items such as Green Scrambled with Baked Portobello (RM 19). The first offers plenty of versatile, serving with choice of eggs – sunny side up/scramble / omelette, choice of two meats- bratwurst chicken sausage/ smoked duck / beef bacon, choice of two sites – mashed pumpkin/ sautéed mushroom / hash brown; with Oregon toast and homemade Provencal sauce. The second cooks up their scrambled eggs folded with pesto, baked Portobello mushroom, toast.

With enough reasons from get out of bed on weekends, behold salmon lovers. The Perfect Salmon Parcel (RM 22) sears your salmon fillet seasoned to perfection, topped with melted cheese on a bed of sauté spinach, wrapped with puff pastry, paired with the secret Morocco sauce.

I love carbonara (RM 26) here serves the authentic yolk and cheese version. With sautéed mushroom, with chunks of bratwurst sausage sprinkled with bits if smoked duck crisps, this one is a lovely indulgence.

Guilty pleasures include some classic chocolate moist indulgence, red velvet, and few interesting twist with one in particular that is taken pride of- Gula Melaka Banana with Almond Brittles (RM 13).

I for one am a big fan of their Panna cotta (RM 6) and this one comes with choices of 4 specially crafted chilled cream creation to tickle your taste buds. Their secret house invention series inspired to pleasure all your sweet, sour, salty and bitter palate showcases crystal, cirtus, caramel, and espresso.

Both espressso brew and hand brew are available with caffeine fixes priced within RM 7- RM 15 with seasonal single origins brewed by the cup, hand brewed pour over. Iced Espresso Tonic (RM 11) would be quite a signature since very few places serves this and be prepared to function like speedy Gonzales. After all, it’s a mix of tonic drink and coffee. Also on the menu is some cold pressed juices (RM 13), Winter Citrus Lemonade (RM 10), and some Fresh Infusions (RM 10)

The serving portion is completely fulfilling and best for brunches. The spot and location ticks all the boxes: it’s spacious and bright with big windows even though without verdant views. Friendly staffs made dining experience real pleasant.
