Two Seven Coffee

Two Seven Coffee is a café in Icon City, several doors away from Ittan Izakaya. The café is named after its unit number: 27, which also approximates the age of its founders.
Two Seven Coffee takes a minimalist approach in all aspects of the café. The interior décor is crafted by hand instead of by engaging third-party contractors. The idea is to start with a clean slate and allow the café to develop gradually over time.
There is a decent range of food items in Two Seven Coffee's menu. One of the recommended choices is Smoked Salmon & Salted Egg Spaghetti (RM20.70). The pasta is dressed with freshly-made sauce derived from salted eggs. Egg are boiled first, then mashed down and made into a thick emulsion of "grainy" consistency.
Another vital aspect of this pasta dish is the smoked salmon. Cut into thin slices, the delectable salmon blends seamlessly with spaghetti and salted egg sauce. Savory appeal is further enhanced by lovely spiciness of bird's eye chili (cili padi). Meanwhile, curry leaves help to improve aroma and make the pasta more appetizing over time.
At Two Seven Coffee, espresso is extracted from a mixture of several single-origin beans. Medium-dark roast allows coffee beans to impart some degree of toastiness. Although the choice of beans is admittedly not the top of the line, the brewing process is fine-tuned to draw the beans' fullest potential. The coffee drinks here are similar to most cafés; shown here is a cup of Cafe Latte (RM8.70).
As for desserts, the cakes at Two Seven Coffee are supplied by a home-based bakery. Matcha Crepe (RM12.70) is made from alternating layers of matcha-flavored crêpe pastry and whipped cream. Red beans punctuate certain parts of this 20-layer cake. Prepared by hand, the baking process of mille crêpe is labor-intensive.
