Dialogue Cafe @ Bandar Sunway
Dialogue is a conversation exchange between two or more people. No wonder I felt so “chatty” when I stepped into a cafe named Dialogue 😛
Perhaps its caused by the cozy environment or perhaps (most likely) the quirky names when I glanced at the menu had got me into talking mode. You are spoilt with option such as Salty Licks, Something’s Fishy, Chick-Kwando, Frying Nemo and Muay Thai, just to name a few, can you guess what exactly they are?
Visually, Dialogue Cafe hits all the right notes, thanks to the fuss free, modern yet cozy interior. Clever blends of rustic white brick and patterned wooden wall decorated with potted plants and ornaments, grayish tiles flooring, wooden tables with metal chairs as well as banquette seats stretch along the wall, everything has made this an inviting space to enjoy your cuppa or a meal.
The al-fresco dining area is equally cheerful too, blessed with ample of sunlight and I really adore that “green” wall. ^__^
The beverage choices are sufficient to please everyone from coffee (cappuccino, latte, flavoured latte), non-coffee drinks (milk, flavoured chocolate, milk, honey lemon, matcha latte) sodas, premium tea, iced tea and soft drinks.
Hazelnut Latte & Lychee Jasmine Tea
I love the subtle rose end note making the cocoa drink extraordinary 🙂
Dialogue Cafe’s full fledged menu with breakfast, burgers, pastas, sandwiches, pizzas, salads, main dishes and waffles. The large offerings definitely suitable for all range of diners, everyone can find something to tickle their taste bud.
This certainly not my first time seeing Nasi Lemak burger as there are a few versions in the market but being my first try, Dialogue Cafe’s interpretation was a pretty satisfying one.
Sandwiched in between two charcoal buns, their rendition has all the essential ingredients of our national dish of Nasi Lemak. Sambal rests atop a crispy and juicy deep fried chicken thigh, crowned with crunchy ikan bilis, roasted peanuts and a good ol’ sunny side up. I think the sambal could have been spicier as the spiciness was too mild even for a person like me who has low tolerance on spicy food. There is melted cheese too for extra satisfaction. The burger was served along with wedges and simple salad.
Other burger options such as Salty Licks (fried chicken with salted egg sauce), Aloha (fried chicken & grilled pineapple) and Something’s Fishy (Dory fish fillet with Tartar Maya sauce) are worth trying too.
There is just something fabulous about salted egg yolks… in my books that is! I can’t help myself but ordered this when I saw it on the menu. The creamy salted egg sauce that glazed the strands of pasta was luscious and savory with much moreish notes of light heat, making every strands of pasta slurping good. There’s plenty of diced chicken to jazz up the pasta.
There is Pasta Lemak which is another dish that pay tribute to Nasi Lemak, well worthy checking out for Nasi Lemak lovers.
Late Night Cravings
Sam’s choice of croissant sandwich did not hit us with huge surprise, the combination of chicken ham, sausage, melted cheese and lettuce was pretty average one. But the croissant was nicely toasted, pleasantly flaky and buttery.
The crispy waffle with soft inner was generously sprinkled with desiccated coconut and fragrant kaya (coconut jam), topped with two scoops of ice cream (we had coconut ice cream that day. A well executed western dessert paired with local ingredients.
Verdict: Overall, the menu felt value for money for cafe standard in this vicinity, hence decent for its price. It was a good lunch session, I’d definitely won’t regret ordering both salted egg pasta and Nasi Lemak burger, certainly love to make a return to try out the remainder of the menu.
