An exciting addition to Bandar Sunway's growing crop of cafés is Softcore, whose name refers to its signature molten cakes that come in Belgian dark chocolate, salted caramel, matcha, peanut butter and Belgian white chocolate; each cake is served with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream, and Softcore stays far away from your typical whipped cream and maraschino cherry topping. Instead, the cakes are prettily plated with toppings like berries, fruit jam and sand crumble that won't look out of place in a fancy restaurant.
Softcore's food menu features an interesting variety: the grilled cheese sandwich gets an upgrade with fillings like Asian chicken and beef brisket; there's also truffle fries topped with Grana Padano cheese, and even parmesan crème brûlée, a savoury take on the dessert with thyme and caramelised onions (plus the mandatory hard caramel top).
While Softcore's Instagram-ready minimalist interior may follow the template of today's 'cool' cafés, the founders weren't quick to jump on the coffee bandwagon – the only coffee you'll get here for now are Vietnamese drip coffee and cold brew (the latter is served with a scoop of ice cream of course; this is a dessert place after all). There are also premium teas, ice-cream floats and milkshakes, a standout of which is the red bean santan milkshake.
