Analog cafe stands out by not standing out. It’s been my favourite haunt for a long time and now finally I can tell everyone! Afiq didn’t want to tell everyone about their great coffee and that everything they serve is from scratch because he wanted to keep low-key. Now the secret is out! Read on…
” Meals made from scratch from the burger buns, pastas..everything! ”
Analog cafe stands out by not standing out. Confused? The cafe owner Afiq didn’t want to market Analog as serving one of the best coffees in the area and he also didn’t want to say that all the meals served in Analog is made from scratch. Even the pasta… and yes… the burger buns. So for 2 years, we couldn’t publish this review, out of respect for the man who wanted to perfect his craft first.
The cafe is a no-concept concept cafe. You hafta come here to understand this. It’s a place where communities come, hangout, play cards, meet friends, have great coffee and eat delicious simple meals.
Our favourite here is the Juicy Luicy Burger. Brioche buns (yes… made in-house) sandwiching an oh-so-juicy double beef patty, topped with melted cheese, topped with caramelised onions and a bit of wild rocket. Delicious flavours here!
Their chicken pesto pasta is also recommended. Afiq believes in going local, even if it’s something like a pesto so he mixes in bayam (local spinach) with the basil pesto ingredients to give it a more mellow localised taste. This is really good. You’ll want to say the pasta is al-dente, but you’ll know this is different because most likely all this while you’ve been eating dried pasta… and you are not used to eating fresh ones made just a couple of hours ago.
Go sloppy with what else? Sloppy Joe guys! Essentially a sandwhich made with ground beef and tomato sauce which AnalogKL elevates by using homemade sourbough buns made fresh, sandwiching their ground beef tomato sauce and cheese leleh. Comes with potato crisps. When we asked which brand this was, I received this “Wei, kita buat sendiri bro” reply.
Analog folks are coffee geeks. Afiq and gang are well respected coffee members in the industry which means their coffee is really good. Our favourite is their standard latte or if you prefer cold, and they have it in stock… their cold brew. Black or White, take your pick… which comes in a glass with a single huge ice ball.
So why is it called Analog? Afiq loves analog sounds… which kinda fits his cafe mood, nice and mellow with LPs playing in the background. What’s an LP? Go google it or ask Afiq’s barista boyz. Peace!
