Plan b @ Bangsar Village

Hello coffee lover, have you been to Plan b for their coffee before? If not, it's time to pay a visit there! Plan b prides itself in its selection of specialist coffees from the renowned Market Lane Coffees of Melbourne, Australia. Coffee beans are selected seasonally from the best growers around the world and roasted in small batches to retain freshness and quality.

The cafe is always packed during lunch hour.

This is my 2nd visit to Plan b & here's what I've tried:

Mushroom soup. It's good & i think the portion is big enough for two.

Spicy Aglio Olio @ RM 14

Hmm, this is just a plain spaghetti served with olive oil & slow-roasted garlic & chili. (It's not spicy at all.) This is what happenend if you didn't read the menu carefully.
Spicy Crabmeat @ RM 22

Linguine scened with lemongrass & kaffir lime, tossed with tomatoes, garlic & spiced prawn oil. It served with lotsa crabmeat & the tasted was great though!

Turkey Ham & Cheese Toastie @ RM 14

A toasted white bread with favourite oozing melted cheese served with turkey ham. This is definately a wholesome sandwhich, i like it so much.

Cappuccino @ RM 6

It's rich & aromatic. Thumbs up for this!

Latte @ RM 6

Watermelon Lychee @ RM 9

Don't like coffee? You may order this smoothie to refreshes your senses.
