I am 80's Cafe @ SS4 PJ

I have been knowing this cafe since it opened in 5 months ago, because it owns by a long lost friend of mine.
I met him one time few years ago, while he was the main chef at one of the famous cafe.
He left a deep impression after our last met because every dishes he prepared for us have his significant taste that reminded us of him.


So, before visiting the new joint of I am 80's Cafe, my expectation was high because I am sure he would not disappoint my taste buds.   
If you have a doubt, then let's check it out with me. #hehe


The cafe located at an "isolated" shop-lot and housing area at Taman Rasa Sayang. 
Thanks to the advance technology nowadays, it's lucky to have Waze to show me the direction, else I am sure I wouldn't arrive safely because my sense of direction is very bad. #sigh



Since it is not located in the busy city with lots of traffic, you do not need to worry about getting a parking space. There are ample parking spaces available just in front of the shop.
Another advantage of getting such remote place is you can have a relaxing ambiance at any hours.



Why is this cafe named as I am 80's?
It is because the owner was born in 80's, and for this reason, you will notice there are some decoration accessories are also come from 80's year. 
I was born in 80's as well, so there are quite a few little things in the cafe can easily playback my childhood memories. #hehe




The owner created a fascinating place to their customers with the lovely furnishings as well as colourful furniture.
It looks like a fun-land for everyone no matter what age you are!



It consider quite a big space cafe since it has 2 floors in total.
The first floor probably can hold up to 10-15 pax in the dining room, and the basement can probably allow at least 60-80 pax.



While walking to the underground basement, you will find all interesting elements placed nicely along your way.
If you are also born in 80's like me, I am sure you will find at least one thing to refresh your childhood memories.





While comparing the top floor and the basement, obviously basement has bigger space.
It is quite a good atmosphere to held a small event like birthday party or family gathering.
Besides organizing any events, you are welcome to bring along your doggies and share the dining experience with them!
I am sure your doggies will love the place as they could run around and meet new friends here. #hehe
P/S Do give them a call to check if there is any special open day for bringing the doggies before your visit :)




I still remember all these wooden rocking horses when I was at age 5, it is quite popular during our age in 80's.





A very cool section where it displays all kind of posters with Disney, Anime, and superheros' characters.
Spider-man is my most favourite superhero, and cute Minion is the most popular for the kids nowadays, includes me! #hehe
All these posters are imported by the owner from Bangkok, Thailand.



The entire place is simple but so lovable.
All the small little decorations stands out the space, and you are definitely alone no more when you are doing a selfie in the cafe.



I guess the animal printed pillows that laying everywhere in the cafe are the most welcoming, Everyone just couldn't stop taking pictures with them. #haha 



After introducing how lovely the cafe is, are you now excited to see what kind of food the 80's cafe offered?



We started the lunch with the Mushroom Soup @ RM9.00.
It's a mix forest mushroom with thick cream and truffle oil; it is quite a filling soup which I guess it's because of the mixture of the cream and oil?!


Ceasear Smoked Salmon Salad @ 19.00; a mixed vegetables with baby gem, spicy crouton, and wantan skin.



Moved on to few main courses we had, Smoked Duck Pesto @ RM18.00
It is made with homemade pesto source and lighten up with duck breast and mushroom.



One of the signature from the cafe, also one of the dish that I will come back for sure, American brunch @ RM35.00.
The portion is big enough for 2 persons, which includes 12" chicken sausage, sauteed onion potato, garden salad, scrambled egg, baked bean, smoked chicken ham, hash brown and baguette.



It's always difficult for me to say about a chicken dish because I am not really a fans of chicken.
Anyway, this Charcoal Grilled Chicken Chop @ RM21.00 is made with black pepper raisin sauce, and mixed with salad and toasted potato.
Their black pepper sauce is definitely taste differently from the black pepper sauce you had before.
And the potato is just well toasted nicely!





If you come here with 4-5 friends, then you shouldn't miss out their main signature dish, 80's Signature @ RM75.00.
The full tray includes roasted 1/2 chicken, onion ring, 12" chicken sausage, fish and chips, sweet corn, hash brown, garden salad, garlic breads.
The most highlight about this dish is their in-house BBQ sauce, it is so damn delicious that I almost want to lick the whole bowl by myself. #lol
For me, I think it is quite a good deal if you are sharing among 5 person which means only RM15 per pax. Good deal heh~~~



80's Cafe always change their recipe from time to time.
This "Kom Pia" is a recipe from Sibu, which will introduce on their new menu very soon!
The original recipe of this little pie thing is filling up with roasted pork, yet the chef changed it to roasted chicken with his own recipe.
Trust me, it is just as good as the roasted pork anyway.



For the drinks menu, I would suggest you do not miss out their special made Frozen Fruits Smoothies at price ranges of RM14-RM16.
There are total 7 flavors up for your choices, and we tried 3 of them which are Mix Berries & Dragon Fruit, Apple Orange & Lychee, and Peach Mango & Magic Ball.
Worry too big for yourself? No worries at all!
You can walk out the cafe with the bottle you paid with you!
Doesn't it cool to own such unique bottle with a cold and freeze drink on your hand? #yes!


 

Oh well, do not forget about their coffee!
The price ranges are in between RM9-RM11 for the hot ones.



Bored with the authentic coffee? Looking for some special coffee?
Yes! 80's cafe has a special ice coffee recipe made with local coffee at only RM10 for a big bottle like this. #gooddealhuh



Look familiar? Yea, I bet you wouldn't be able to get this original bottle from other restaurants or supermarkets, but you definitely can get it from the 80's cafe!
It is not as sweet as the ones in the market, also it is less gas than the new formula.



End the lunch with Dancing in the Pan, another new recipe from the chef.
It is a dessert with sizzling Vanilla ice-cream combine with bread toasts and butter pudding.
Everyone just couldn't stop saying "It's so good" after the first bite!
I really like it and will definitely make another visit for just this special dessert!





Met up sweet Audrey and cute Cecilia again ~~~~
