Pulp is the material used to make paper; it is also the fruit of coffee plants. This is the inspiration behind Pulp cafe, the standalone coffeeshop set within grounds of former printing factory Art Printing Works. A lovable story aside, the cafe by the team behind Singapore's Chye Seng Huat Hardware also boasts a designated cupping room for coffee devotees. Bring a friend or a date for after-dinner drinks — the cafe bustles as warm lightbulbs hanging outdoors provide a cosy ambience. Order the killer Iced Mint Chocolate (RM15), a rare rendition of the drink that effectively captures the essence of fresh mint and chocolate without tasting artificial. If coffee doesn't keep you up at night, a small, warm cup of Charm (espresso and chocolate, RM13) will be a bittersweet nightcap. Keen to impart their coffee knowledge, the team has placed sample shots of black coffee (either blends or single-origins, as detailed on a placard) at the tasting counter by the entrance.
Avg price per person: RM25
