Quite similar to nyonya food but not as many spices in it.
Enjoy the Lee family's own well-kept recipes such as Hainanese Chicken Chop, Malaya Nasi Lemak and Chicken Rice Balls in an Art-Deco setting. Andrew Lee, the Founder of ARCH, established Kuala Lumpur City Gallery and created the iconic I ♥ KL structure at DataranMerdeka, where the gallery stands. Andrew, together with his family, started ARCH Café to revive their family’s own well-kept recipes such as the signature Hainanese Chicken Chop, Malaya Nasi Lemak and Chicken Rice Balls while new innovations such as the Durian Pancake has become a popular sought-after delicacy. The cafe’s embellishments are inspired by the ambience of Old Market Square in the 1930’s during the Art-Deco era. The Lee family welcomes you to ARCH Café, where they provide an authentic palate experience for every patron.

We've been decided to visit there for sometimes.. and here we go, Tappers Cafe!! Their restaurant's theme is WHITE!! >.< There even have chef's recommended, breakfast set and lunch set too!! It's not only western food, but there do serve varieties of food such as rice, spaghetti, and side dishes..
Their Ayam Penyet is really delicious, the chicken is grilled with strong fragrant spices and the best part is the indonesian sambal, as it gets you addicted despite the intense spiciness! Their Nasi lemak is unique as well, as the rice has a strong pandan flavor and for just RM8.90 their side dishes are given quite generously, definitely value for money. Great atmosphere as it brings back the old 60's when Malaysia still has that little British Influence. It has a very different experience visiting this new outlet from the other 2 outlets the restaurant, has at OneUtama Bowling Alley (The Kopi Time Express) and their original outlet at 36 Damansara Jaya as the new outlet at Subang Jaya is known to be their flagship store. Definitely worth a visit and re-visit the 60's for yourself!
