LE CAFFE & SALATO | KARAMUNSING CAPITAL

There were times when some of us are craving for some local rice / noodle dishes and a cup of hot chocolate or latte at the same time, if its not then it is just me lol. Its hard to find cafe that serves such combination in KK City, and gladly the owners behind Le Caffe & Salato came up with such concept and I am so excited to try this place out!

Loving this cozy and chic
Here are some of the dishes / beverages we had:

SALATO HOMEMADE CHICKEN NUGGETS (RM 9.80)
Salato's special blend of minced chicken meat and vegetables, deep fried.  This is an interesting version of chicken nuggets compared to those served at fast food joints - by the looks of it, it doesn't look like chicken nuggets at all but they were so great that it became Fay's ultimate favourite! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside.

SALATO 'SUPER FLAVORFUL' FRIED CHICKEN WINGS & DRUMETTES (RM 9.80)
This is one of my favourite - Just like the name of the dish, its very flavourful, very crispy on the outside and very tender and juicy on the inside that I actually tapau another set home for my family to their and they give big thumbs up too!

SALATO TIGER PRAWN CARBONARA (RM 27.80)
If you are a prawn lover, you will definitely loved this pasta dish. Tagliatelle pasta boiled in prawn infused water, served with fresh tiger prawns and buttermilk sauce. I had a mind blown moment when chewing the pasta noodles as you can taste the prawn in it. Thumbs up to the chef!

SALATO FRIED NOODLES - SEAFOOD (RM 11.80)
 Simple yet flavourful plate of fried noodles with lots of 'wok hei' - choice of chicken luncheon meat (RM 10.80) or seafood (RM 11.80).

SALATO CRISPY LEMON SAUCE CHICKEN CHOP RICE (RM 10.80)
Crispy Chicken Chop with Tangy Lemon Sauce served with Fried Rice. I would love it if they gave more lemon sauce to go with the fried rice. Yum Yum!

SALATO CRISPY THAI SAUCE CHICKEN CHOP RICE (RM 10.80)
I loved this! They made their own Thai style sauce from scratch instead of using those commercialized bottle Thai Sauce like most restaurants do. I enjoyed dipping their homemade chicken nuggets with this sauce as it goes well with it - maybe next time I should request a plate of the sauce whenever I ordered the chicken nuggets.

SALATO NASI LEMAK WITH FRIED CHICKEN THIGH (RM 14.80)
Classic Nasi Lemak with the basic accompaniments with a choice of fried chicken thigh meat (RM 14.80) or Chicken Luncheon Meat (RM 11.80). The sambal was great that it goes so well with the rice.

FRIED MEEHOON WITH CRAB (SEASONAL)
This might looked like a normal plate of fried mee hoon with crab but I assured this plate of mee hoon is full of crab flavour and you wouldn't stop eating this! Very good 'wok hei' taste and the meehoon is full of crab flavour that makes you wonder what magic that the Chef has! This dish is available only on Weekends and do enquire the cashier for the price as it is seasonal.


I think I'm too hungry and thought that I had snapped the other dishes but I didn't *cries*. Their other notable dishes are SALATO CLAYPOT FRAGRANT LOH SHU FUN (RM 9.80) and SALATO FISH HEAD MEEHOON SOUP (RM 14.80). I planning to come back to try their Wa Tan Ho which I spotted on the menu. Yums!

UJI MATCHA LATTE (RM 12.00) & HOT CHOCOLATE (RM 12.00)
As I mentioned earlier in this post, they served Uji Matcha Latte, Hot Chocolate and other hot beverages such as Mocha and Chai Latte. Caffeine Drinks availabled in cold version too. Not forgetting is their Signature Passionfruit Juice which is seasonal and you can choose between Ice Blended or Juice version. (:

COCONUT JUICE - SEASONAL (RM 8.00)
This is my favourite drink in Salato! Fresh Pandan Coconut Juice served cold is always the best. They took the time to remove the hair shell and smooth the outer shell to make it looked very presentable.
