Lavender Café & Bistro has ceased operations until further notice.
Housed in one of the 1920s link townhouses on Bangkok Lane, Lavender Cafe and Bistro opened just two months ago and they offer the likes of chicken chop in the old-fashioned egg batter, ham steak with a choice of two sauces and duck drumstick with black pepper sauce. Their food is straightforward and comes with a side of fries, coleslaw and salad.
At RM12, their chicken chop coated in delicate egg and flour batter sops the sweet-sour sauce nicely and is a nice change from the usual ultra crispy bread-crumbed batter. Although, the cafe is quickly becoming popular for their pan-fried duck chop or drumstick in a generous amount of very peppery black pepper sauce at RM18. It might be an idea to have the black pepper sauce on the side to be able to savour the succulent duck on its own a little more.
Their portions are generous and are true value for money. The uncomplicated flavours they serve match the simple interior of the double-storey cafe with a few dark wood tables and chairs. It basically feels like as if you've stepped into someone's dining room. There may be no frills and no snazzy decorations here but their simple and honest comfort food more than makes up for it.
