Delicious 3 course Western food in Kuantan | Java Flava Cafe


There are many cafes in kuantan but not many can whip out proper 3 course menus. Java Flava is definitely one of them.. From a cafe that focused on coffee and tea initially, Java Flava has now grown into one of the local favorite hangout spots. It's pork free as well.

If you are planning for some work related discussions over lunch, Java Flava is a great spot. Comfortable with air-conditioning. Enough space on the table for a few folders and laptops.

Pots of tea can be refilled to last the discussion.


Or if you are coffee lovers like me, their barista makes creamy and foamy hot latte and cappuccino as well.


We wanted to order a salad for entree but it wasn't available. So there's a less healthy version of cheesy nachos with so much guilty cheese sauce which 4 of us only managed to finish half. Because the nachos were already drizzled with lots of mayonnaise and cheese sauce already. Perhaps the cafe can consider a salsa version instead?

Croissant

This is one of the best croissants I have had. Crispy skin with warm, soft fluffy insides. Heavenly combination with some salted butter. It's bigger than my hand but I just couldn't stop having more. Strongly recommended!


Chicken wrap

Juicy chicken breast cutlets marinated in BBQ sauce, pan fried then slot into pockets of dense pita bread with lettuce leaves as well as tomato slices. Topped with yummy mayonnaise, half a pocket is enough to fill my hungry stomach. The dish comes with a serving of fries which can be substituted with mashed potatoes upon request.

Grilled lamb chops


Each serving comes with 3 generous slices of turmeric flavoured lamb shoulder. I'm quite particular about having lamb because I dislike the gamey smell and taste. But this lamb chop tasted really like local favorite satay. Dipped in mint sauce, it enhanced the sweetness of the meat. But it can be difficult to cut the lamb chop as there was quite a bit of tendon and fatty bits which I don't eat. A huge serving of mashed potato and coleslaw could easily feed 2!

We were already full by then but could not resist the temptation of ordering the instaworthy dessert!

Affogato

By now 2 doses of caffeine made me slightly giddy so I was glad that I was sharing it with Mr hubby. This espresso shot was slightly bitter which neutralized the sweetness of the coconut icecream. A sprig of fresh mint was a surprise element of the dish. A must order for coffee and ice cream lovers!

Waffles

2 matcha flavoured crispy Belgian waffles sandwiching dark chocolate sauce, served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, sweetened red beans and a dollop of cream. The matcha biscuit sticks added some crunch to the dessert.

Therefore, these were out verdicts
Price 7.5/10 (more value for money lunch sets that we didn't try)
Taste 8/10
Atmosphere 8/10
Service 7/10 (Order and pay at counter only)
