Ipoh’s popular home-grown café chain, STG Café, has expanded its wings to Kuala Lumpur, bringing, for the first time, some of its delicious signature culinary selections to folk in the capital city.
STG Café, which has three outlets in Ipoh and one in Taiping (Perak), has already established a name for itself since 2013 and is ready to join the fray in the big city.
With this first outlet in Kuala Lumpur’s Vida Bukit Ceylon which was opened in July 2017, diners can expect more of its presence in other parts of Kuala Lumpur soon, in accordance with its expansion plans.
Although the food menu in STG Bukit Ceylon is rather limited compared to its Ipoh eateries, this café specialises more on pastries and desserts.
Just a stone’s throw away from the F&B-cum-nightlife strip of Changkat Bukit Bintang and the street food galore of Jalan Alor, this is the place to head to for a little tête-à-tête (or a small private gathering) away from the crowd, over a mouth-watering spread of tea set.
Part of the tea set includes finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones with homemade strawberry jam & cream, and miniature desserts.
If you are someone who likes to work in a quiet eatery, this café is most suitable and effective, drawing inspiration from life on the street below from its floor-to-ceiling window, as you sip on a cup of calming Sabah tea.
Yes, STG Café has its own tea plantation in Sabah, which produces all the teas that are served at all STG outlets. While most Sabah Tea products are sold at major supermarkets, STG’s flavoured teas are only available at STG Cafés, which means that if you were in KL and looking to purchase STG flavoured tea, the only place to go to is STG Bukit Ceylon.
If you wish to grab a meal at STG Bukit Ceylon, my personal recommendation is the Tea Smoked Chicken, prepared with its sister company’s very own Sabah Tea. This is indeed a special dish that is only available at STG outlets. Other chef’s recommendations would be Mee Siam Istimewa, Italian Seafood Pasta and Grilled Norwegian Salmon.
Lunch sets are offered from Mondays to Fridays, 12 noon to 2pm. Not only do these meals come at an affordable price, they are also served with a complimentary glass of lemon tea.
As for dessert, I would suggest the ever so lip-smacking Lava Chocolate Cake served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and Tiramisu. Indeed, if your stomach only has space for two desserts, these should be the ones to order.
By the way, STG Bukit Ceylon is running an opening promotion for tea and coffee beverages, at a Buy 1 Get 1 Free offer. This is applicable for all beverages that have coffee or tea, even for these refreshing Sabah Tea Mocktails, which are STG Café’s very own special concoctions.
STG Bukit Ceylon is on the lower floor of the Small Office, Liveable Office (SOLO) development known as Vida Bukit Ceylon. Its nearest public transport station is Bukit Bintang MRT Station.
