MJ Cafe and Tappers, the humble and sustainable ones


Steamed thick bread with chunky butter & kaya custard (RM2.40) at MJ1 June 2012
Before these 2 worth recommending cafes were forgotten, I promised myself these cafes should be remembered and praised.

For most of us, MJ Cafe is just another local cafe in Jaya33 for the last few years which is popular for it’s affordable and impressive menu from local, thai to western delicacies and cakes. Their signature dishes include nasi lemak, chicken chop, Thai fried rice and Hakka noodles. Also, the steam thick bread that come with pure butter and kaya custard (RM2.40) we had recently was absolutely tapper’s toastauthentic! Do you know that MJ Cafe was actually started in SS2 (used to be at the corner shop facing the morning market) and Bukit Bintang area years back?

While Tappers Cafe has been around since JayaOne existed, they used to expand as far as Capital Square, offering hainanese and mostly western fair. The food quality is maintained and yet the prices had made very affordable complimented with a good cozy ambience. The breakfast is offered below RM10 for american breakfast that includes UNLIMITED tea and arabica coffee! Lunches are around RM10 or more.

Tapper's big breakfastThe only downside is the sluggishness in servicing even during non-peak hours which has been maintained as well :). It is also funny to learn that they still do not manage to make a simple half boiled egg. It is always underdo (the egg is still quite raw and transparent!). So be warned and try to avoid it…

Nevertheless, it is very much happy to see some old timer to be around our neighbourhood for a longer time which is also very reasonable priced, and continue offering  a comfortable ambience. Sometimes it is too sad to see the speed of turnover rate of shop business around us nowadays. I am blessed that we can find some nice meet up places while struggling to cope with inflation, economy slowdown.
