Caffe Ritazza KLIA

Caffe Ritazza is an International coffee bar chain and globally, their menu ranges from all sorts of ciabattas and paninis - Something I very much prefer to eat. However the branch in Malaysia has a little twist. More than half of their menu consist of Malaysian food.



If you've been to KLIA (which I think everyone have lah) and had spend some time walking around, I'm sure this place won't be a stranger to you.



This plate of Nasi Lemak cost roughly RM 18 - definitely a steep price to pay for nasi lemak (Heck, I just had a RM 1 Nasi Lemak this morning.Lol). The great thing that comes along with paying more for your food is that they always come well presented. Taste wise, it was nothing above edible.



I know Ice Latte and Nasi Lemak is not exactly a brilliant combination but they claim to "serve the finest coffee and handpicked their premium coffee beans". I'm a sucker for tag line like this and I just have to order their coffee to you know... authenticate the tag line. :P



If you ask me to rate the latte from one to five (five being the best), I would rate it one.The major faux pas for me was that the latte was neither hot nor cold. (It should have been cold since I ordered Ice Latte!) It's a definitely bias judgement because I find it hard for my taste bud to gauge the taste of a drink when it is hanging in between hot or cold.



If you're in KLIA and looking for a place to have a quick bite, I would suggest Caffe Marche (review coming up soon!) - just about a stone throw away from Caffe Ritazza.

I agree. I like things really cold or really hot. No in between.

Something like Nasi lemak is famous too in Indonesia with the different name.

Hey, that's cheaper than the Kopitiam place upstairs in KLIA! I paid RM25 for the nasi lemak there!

Melanie said...

msihua : Hey, haven't seen you in the comment box for so long! :P Upstairs, level 5 you mean? Coz i think it's offices in level 4.

msihua said...

Sorry Mel. Been having a great 2 months in KL. Just came back to Melbourne =)

No idea where the levels are.. used to be where Delifrance was.. but I think they just moved Delifrance again... the level above Coffee Bean?

Melanie said...

msihua : Should be level 5 then, it's the arrival hall. :) Hahaha, no wonder. I check your blog and there's minimal updates. Great to have you back! :)
