Say Yes Cafe, Damansara Uptown

Remember Kedai Kopi Malaya? I won't be surprised if you don't because the food, to me, was unmemorable.


They have moved.


Now in their place is Say Yes Cafe.


I snapped their shop front on a day when they were closed (Monday). It can be awkward taking a photo when there are customers inside or when there are people the entrance.


See what I mean?


This is their menu.


The interior decor is much better than the previous layout, spacious, bright and airy (better energy flow I would say).


I am very predictable. Kopi O Ais Kosong. It was just ok.


I opted for the nasi lemak ayam goreng berempah. The nasi lemak was very aromatic and lemak enough for me. I thought it was quite good. The other carb option is pulut (glutinous rice) which I felt is too heavy for me. 


The fried chicken was fried just right rendering the exterior crispy and the meat moist and tender. I could tell from the texture that the chicken was fresh. Even the Chinese style sambal I enjoyed. I wished for a more generous portion or perhaps next time I could pay for extra.


So yes. Yes, I can say yes, I will come back! I hope to try their Chee Cheong Fun.

Meanwhile some other developments in Damansara Uptown.


Rod Dee Ded is no more and in its place is Baker's Cottage.


Back in the 1990's there were quite a number of bakeries in this area. Now there are only three (Baker's Cottage included, the other two being TK Confectionery and RT Pastry).


I dropped in one afternoon after having this heh..heh...


The people at the office were feeling peckish and were in need of reinforcements.


Ah! Got discount!


The shop space is tiny and the choice of pastries and buns were limited.

Last weekend I went again to sapot sapot.


One curry puff, kaya puff, mini donuts, banana muffins, chocolate muffin and a sausage roll. The muffins were pretty good and so was the kaya puff. The rest were all right.


To my friends and readers who are celebrating Deepavali/Diwali tomorrow, I wish you a safe and joyous celebration with your family and loved ones!

  1. The thing I miss most from KL is not that delicious looking nasi lemak, because somehow can get decent ones in Penang too. Wantan mee also still OK, can get some familiar taste if we pay a premium at certain shops. No, the thing I miss most now (from what the menu shows) is KL sauced chee cheong fun. Which of course I won't get to taste this time as well :( ...

  2. I see you've feasting on a lot of fried chicken & nasi lemak lately...lol! I see this new cafe not only took over the space but retained most of the decor as well (especially that front door). I can understand the 'no need to spend too much on renovation' mentality by adopting the flooring and frontage but sometimes it can work to their disadvantage coz some people who walk by might just think it's still the same old place! >_<

  9. The ayam goreng berempah definitely looked good! Some time ago Baker's Cottage was selling roasted chicken at RM10.90/11.90 only, and I bought one which was not bad at all for the price charged. Is this outlet selling roasted chicken?

    1. Yes, this outlet also sells roasted chicken. I intend to try it one day.

  10. What a delightful update by this PH who is the real "Uptown Girl"...!!!
    I remembered that miserable Malaya kopi tiam which survived so long. I suspect the owner lives in my area as he posted the move in the community facebook and his loyal fans were from same kampung lah.

    I must visit this Baker's Cottage since I have been buying a variety of small buns while I am still on strict miserable diet.
