So a few days ago yours truly me was hunting for iftar with my family when I stumbled upon this hidden gem. Honestly speaking, I still could not believe that this cafe actually serves Ramadhan Buffet dinner because it looks so chic and cozy, the usual kind of vibe that you will get from a coffee house. Once I was in, those unmistakable spreads of glorious ramadhan food quickly greeted me. We arrived early on that day but my hunch told me that the place would be crowded real soon, hence we quickly went to book out table and the sight of those iconic dried dates were pleasantly awaiting for us on our table. A very thoughtful touch indeed. :)
Syrup and dates awaiting you
Can I have a cup of coffee please? :D
Love the decor
Just look at those light bulbs
The whole set up was really beautiful and the ambiance was nothing short of mesmerizing if you ask me. I particularly love the light bulbs in the cafe as they were so grandiloquent, illuminating the whole place with their glimmering aureate hues. Perhaps that was why I felt Cofeology was such a warm and amiable place to be. The decor was really beautiful in a rustic way with charming and yet recognizable wallpapers of coffee cups, coffee beans and quotes about coffee-which yours truly me really love. All in all I am the ambiance deserves my two thumbs up.
Time to makan!
Ready to dig in?
After we were done being in awe at the sight of those grandiose lights and fascinating decor, the ambrosial whiff of food began to tickle our noses. I could smell the sweet scent of fried chicken and the salted fish enticing me to grab my plate and fork. It was time for iftar or buka buasa...or in other words dinner time. Then again my family actually waited for our Muslim friends to have their dinner first as they had been fasting for the whole day; Then only we started to make our move. No worries as there was plenty of scrumptious food for everyone. After all it was Ramadhan Buffer Dinner! Let's dig in!
The waiter and waitress were really friendly. :)
I wish I could eat this again!
Vegetables and prawns
Everyone was having a great time buka puasa-ing at Cofeology!
The look on his face says it all. :)
My! My! Where should I start? Would it be the tantalizing rendang chicken or the juicy, divine lamb slices with rosemary sauce? Should I just grab a few crispy fried chickens or some of those mouth-watering salted fish? How about those colouful desserts dancing on another table, waiting to jump onto my plates? Decision~decision and by then the glutton in me could not make up my mind anymore. Since it was a buffet, we just "catch
caught them all" and put them on our table. I really could not contain my excitement when the food was right before my eyes~let's enjoy folks!
Fried chicken anyone?
These crispy and yet juicy fried chickens are top notch!
Flavorful rendang chicken!
Chicken Ham Salad
Gotta grab them real fast
No buka puasa is complete without these dried dates
Salad on a bamboo anyone?
Jelly good papadom
Every decoration is meticulously thought
Personally, I truly enjoyed eating the stewed lamb as it was cooked to perfection. The flawlessly marinated meat was juicy and luscious making every bite a pure pleasure. Surely the chef had done an awesome job to make sure that the lamb which required a bit more coaxing was tender enough to slice with our forks~al dante I would say. Both Jordan boy and Jasmine girl really enjoyed their fried chicken and I could see why. I had a bite too and immediately the sinfully tender, succulent chicken encased in a layer of crispy deep fried batter aroused my taste buds, rendering me to have a mouth-gasm! BAM!
Let's return to our table, shall we?
It's time to have dinner
This was only the first round
Once we were done walloping our main dishes, it was time for appetizers. We sampled various desserts of different hues and shapes that I thought were really, really dainty. I particularly loved the green pandan cake which was so rich and flavourful! Not only was it very aromatic, the texture was soft and the taste was unbelievably distinctive. I had a lot of them to say the least...BUURRPPP. There were also ice creams and other notable desserts like bubur cha cha which my wife highly recommends.
Told you fried chicken was good!
When a picture says a thousand words

I am really happy that I brought my family to experience buka puasa at this cafe as we could luxuriate in various gratifying Arabian and Malaccan Traditional Malay cuisines. Our savory feast was really satisfying and each of us wish we could return for more as there are 7 different menus for every single day.
