One Half x Ilaika
Time Out says
Remember the commendable pop-up coffee bar at Brats last year? Founded by Adly Azmy and Keith Koay (one of the top baristas in Malaysia), One Half have since opened two new offshoots after ending their run at Brats: one at Random Food Store in Damansara Uptown, and the other at Taman Paramount’s Ilaika multi-label store, just a few doors up from Brats.
The coffee bar is hidden at the back of the store; the space is minimalist and small, with just a few cosy seats. But we suggest you grab a seat out front, where a few tables have been set up among the potted plants. It’s a very pretty spot.
Drink-wise, you can always count on their filter or pour-over coffee, which uses a selection of single origin beans that changes periodically. There are also espresso-based coffee such as long black, latte and cappuccino, as well as a small selection of tea and iced drinks. If you’re feeling peckish, check out the display of cakes from local bakers.
