Poco Homemade, Cafe & Atelier, Bangsar


It’s that time of the year again, where the 7 of us gather to celebrate our friendship. It all happened two years backs, right before C&C and sugarbean flew off the UK. We had a wonderful dinner at Xenri and vowed to meet up every September (even though some of us meet up almost every week!). Last year we celebrated C&C’s return at Ole Ole Bali and this year we have decided to go ahead with our dinner plan without sugarbean’s presence.
Poco Homemade Cafe & Atelier is the perfect meet up point. The girls can’t resist such a clean and airy cafe and shop which features zakka, a design and fashion fad originating in Japan. It is located on Lorong Kurau and serves simple home cooked Japanese fare. The guys protested and asked for a meaty and hearty fare, but their complaints were nowhere to be heard.
Poco Homemade is owned by a young couple in their early 20s, zzz and mermer. Zzz is very good in draft work and sketches while mer mer specializes in handmade crafts and sewing. And the lady manning the kitchen behind? Zzz’s mum it is.

I have always had a soft spot for family-run establishments, and as I stepped into the restaurant, I already felt comfortable. The cafe was clean, bright and airy with cute crafts and trinkets everywhere.




The menu may be very limited at the moment, but the cafe serves up a bounty of simple, home-cooked Japanese fare at a very reasonable pricing.

    The food looks rather different from those I’ve seen so far, perhaps these are homemade’s style =] Tofu Cheese Cake seems to be very nice, I wonder how’s the taste? I can guess the crispiness of the chicken in Chicken Katsu Chop and Rice with Curry, it must be very crispy^^

    I like the food served very much, thank you for sharing~
