X Coffee: This Halal Japanese-Inspired Coffee Lounge In KL Is The Perfect Weekend Hangout Spot


Ili •  Oct 11, 2020

Kuala Lumpur is peppered with plenty of halal cafes - ranging from nature themed spots and rustic cafes to those with a minimalist look and chill vibe. But if you're looking for someplace where you can just kick back, relax and enjoy some peace and quiet with a warm cup of coffee in hand, X Coffee is exactly the place to be.

Make your way to the neighbourhood of Taman Tun Dr Ismail (also know as Taman Tun or TTDI for short) and head up to second floor where you'll find the coffee shop. Oozing a minimalist vibe with wood decor and hints of greenery, you'll definitely feel the relaxing atmosphere once you step into the lounge. Grab a seat at a nook for their comfy armchairs or by the window for a naturally-lit Insta photo.

Dive into a wonderland of coffee by ordering their various daily brews, espressos and specialty drinks. With a focus on filtered coffees, they offer 15 unique single origin coffee beans that are mainly sourced from Japan (including Maruyama Coffee, known to have some of the best beans in the world). This means you get the chance to taste all kinds of coffees with distinct flavours and qualities that aren't typically found in your regular instant coffees.

They even sell coffee blends, filter coffee tools and accessories. So if you know someone who's a coffee aficionado or if you're one yourself, you know where to shop next for an awesome gift!

Need something to pair with your coffee? Then get yourself their pastries, hot dishes or savoury bites. And if you'd like something sweet instead, you can't go wrong with a slice of cake or their other dessert - a homemade specialty coffee jelly (only available for dine-in).

Even if you're not in the mood for coffee, you can always order a hot pot of tea, a glass of matcha latte or a refreshing bottle of sparkling grapefruit juice (imported from Italy!). Just pick whichever you're feeling for the day and let the chill vibes of the coffee lounge wash your stress away.
