Jibby & Co.

When Jing was back, I had trouble thinking of nice eateries to bring her to. Granted, there are a lot of hipster cafes sprouting up in KL, but I find that most of them don't have the full package. More often than not, the cafe will hit the right notes in terms of deco and interior, but miss the mark when it comes to food. And I am a foodie through and through, so it is of utmost importance!

One day I came across this cafe called Jibby & Co.... Actually someone was bashing this cafe on FB, hahaha. Apparently the service is very slow and staff is obnoxious. However, I have also read reviews saying that the ambiance is great (very reminiscent of Melbourne cafes), and food is good. So although the location is really far (it's in Empire Subang), I decided to bring Jing there-- during non-peak hours, of course.

When I reached the place, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Jibby & Co. is not a restaurant INSIDE the mall, but instead, they built a glass house outside! I love air-conditioning as much as the next person, but let's face it, cafes in a mall somehow loses its charm!

The entrance of the cafe. Jing made me promise that the restaurant is not opened by Najib wtf.

Bright-lipped selfie! Sometimes I find it hard to believe that a lot of people think we look alike, 'cause from this photo, we look as different as night and day! :O

Love the airy and open concept.

The menu looks really promising too! Everything sounds innovative and delicious, and we had a hard time deciding what to order.

In the end, Jing went for a fancy-sounding American breakfast. Actually, I think the dish had her at "cheese sauce", haha.

Whereas I had the soft shell crab burger, which was utterly delicious!
