Suagu @1502A

Finally, there is a rooftop bar in SK! I remember I used to lament how we SKians have to travel to get to a decent bar but no longer, there is now one in our hood! With a catchy name like Suagu or rather, country bumpkin, it was easy to remember. 

Their entrance is located on the back lane of the complex of shops. When they first started, you could waltz straight through but now, you would need to make an appointment with them to secure your spot and for them to give you the pass code to the security door. I suppose it is a sensible security and safety measure for a place that is open till midnight and along a really quiet stretch, at that.

Be prepare to climb a really steep flight of spiral staircase. As they are a rooftop bar, you would need to climb pass three floors (hint: you definitely need that can of beer post-climb).

They offer a variety of craft beer from across the world and also drinks that are non-alcoholic.

I know the glass looks normal but I like the shape of the "bottom" (what are they called?). I find it to be a cute shape. Gotta get myself my own set of drink ware, as each home should have one set, ey, since there are 9.9 sales coming up...

They also offer skewers that are freshly grilled and other snacks, which you could enjoy with your drinks in their cosy open-air environment. 

They biggest selling point is the mesmerising sunset and nightscape over the new village of SK.

The only thing I have an issue with is that it is located along the main road of SK, where traffic is one-way. Therefore, if you could not find a spot to park the first time around, you would need to turn a big round and try again the next time.

Engi Patisserie

As I was browsing Insta one day a long time ago, a (then) new account started to appear on my feed. From its name, it was hard to tell what type of cafe it was other than it served pastries. From browsing the pictures and captions, I deduced that they served Japanese-style pastries, or at least, someone there (perhaps the owner?) was trained in Japan.

The clean and simple atmosphere inside the cafe contrasted with the noisy atmosphere outside. I particularly liked how they had a signature futuristic-looking chandelier.


Instinctively, we walked over to the cake display first to have a look at what cakes are available (and whether they look as good as they do in photographs).

There are separate displays for breads and croissants.

On both my visits with different friends, we tried different things and all had their unique tastes, which we enjoyed. They did not just look good, they were tasty, too!

Ichigo (so aptly named)

Citrus tarte

Ferrero Rocher croissant (sinful to say the least)

Pistachio rose croissant

The barista did an adorable latte art on my matcha because he forgotten the order due to the crowd.

They also serve main meals - we saw other tables being served pasta and soup. 

Parking here, like in any part of Cheras, is a nightmare, so do pick your time and date wisely before visiting.
