I've previously came across pictures of KESOM Cafe delicacies on instagram and thought I've give this place a try as they serve something unique. I never knew of the existence of these Malay delicacies until I came across this place. So let's see what I've missed all these while! 


They had a November Meal Deal during my visit which is a package of  Nasi Kerabu + Ayam Goreng Berempah + Serai Pandan Drink for only RM13.50.

The usual Nasi Kerabu (RM8.00) consist of Basmathi Rice steamed with "Bunga Telang extracted water" paired with Kesom Special Tumis, Budu, Kerisik Ikan, Kerisik Kelapa, Acar, Sambal Belacan, Telor Masin and Keropok Ikan.


Nasi Dagang (RM7.00) consist of traditionally prepared Beras Dagang (known as wild rice from the East Coast) steamed for hours with coconut milk and herbs. The rice is paired with Sambal Belacan, Acar, Telur Rebus, Keropok Ikan and some Gulai Sayur with Kari Kuah and Gulai,


I've also ordered;

  • Bubur Cha Cha (RM4.50) - one of my favourite local dessert consisting of Coconut Milk, Sweet Potato, Tapioca, Yam and sago. Yumms! There wasn't anything special but it was moderately good to satisfy my comforting craving.
  • Sambal Petai Tempeh Tofu (RM3.50) - another comforting dish for us Malaysians, a sambal type of chili dish fried with the "Stinky petai" which we would actually claim aromatic instead,  tempeh, the fermented soy beans and also the bland tofu which the local somehow finds it delicious! 
  • Gulai Ikan Raja Berangkat (RM6.00) - Fish with yellow curry gravy cooked with a mix of spices and also some salt and sugar to taste.


Sambal Petai Tempeh Tofu (RM3.50)


Gulai Ikan Raja Berangkat (RM6.00)  


When I enter the place at around lunch time on a Monday, the place was filled with many white collar patrons, making it looks like a work station canteen. :D


Ikan Goreng Kunyit (RM5.00 - RM7.00 depending on the size)  Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM5)


Gulai / Kari Ayam Kawah (RM6.00)  


Gulai Sayur (RM4.00)  Sayur (RM3.00)  Sambal Petai (RM3.50)

Overall, the food taste special but it does not create a craving. Perhaps it is because my taste buds are not accustomed to the different flavours. My partner who have tasted the originals at Kelantan commented that the flavours were light and accustomed to the local demands. The menu prices are set to above average but it's alright for a once in a while indulgence.

It is not easy to locate the place as the signboard above is misleading. Do look out for the "blook warehouse" signboard instead.

On the 11th Day of Christmas!

We had a mini gathering at Morganfield's because we wanted to try the Oink! Oink Christmas Platter :D Well-known for their pork-ribs which comes with an expensive price tag, it's usually a place chosen to celebrate special occasions. My first time here too!


Menu for Christmas is;
  • Mini Jolly Christmas Platter (RM159.90)
  • Jolly Christmas Platter (RM249.90)


We were spoilt with a wide range of beverage choices to choose from but it's always good to have these pork platters with some beer :D They have special in house promotion for 3 pint of beers. Do check it out if you're ordering beers for 3 :)


It took sometimes before the platter arrives and we were crazy hungry. Guess it was because of the rainy weather and also the amount of customers due to this festive season.

We had this Jolly Christmas Platter (RM249.90) for 3-4 person consisting of;

  • 1/2 slab spare ribs (choice of Hickory BBQ / Garlicky BBQ / Smoke Peppercorn /or Spicy Lemongrass)
  • Jack Daniel's Glazed Baby Back
  • Roasted Whole Turkey Drumstick marinated with Herb Yoghurt basted with BBQ Sauce
  • Grilled Footlong Farmer's Bratwurst Sausage (***missing from my serving *insert horror face*)
  • Grilled Herby Hog Sausage
  • Grilled Spicy Devil Sausage
  • Christmas Stuffing
  • Seasonal Veggies
  • Garden Salad
  • Grilled Corn on the Cob
  • Flat Chips
  • Cranberry Jam & Gizzard Gravy  
***I just realise of the missing Bratwurst Sausage when I was listing the platter items.. Dropped them a message on facebook but there was no reply. Tried leaving a feedback on the rating and got no feedback as well. Didn't know they have such bad customer service. No more next time.



I actually like the Jack Daniel's Glazed Baby Back, short ribs more than the spare ribs as they are more tasteful and delicious. Their flat chips were fairly thick but still crunchy. It was a good :)



The drumstick however, lacks flavour, unlike that it has gone through marination process as the flavours definitely did not sip into the meat. Perhaps a longer marination process would help.

Overall, it was just a fairly good meal but did not seems to have met my expectation I had on their much raved about spare ribs for the price I paid for. The platter was also cold when served, which reduce my appetite although was already hungry by the time it arrived.

I doubt I would ever return it as the food and service I received does not justify to the price I paid.

First and last visit.
