Fresh in the local foodie scene, Burrow at Bangsar Shopping Centre has certainly made a mark for itself as one of KL’s hottest café & bakery. True to its name, Burrow is a cozy little nook with an open-glasshouse concept and enough space to fit just under 20 people comfortably so a line outside the café during peak hours isn’t an uncommon sight.

Folks come for the popular canelés (between RM7-9) that comes in three flavors: classic canelé infused with Madagascar Vanilla Bean, the Lucky Marmalade (infused with orange oil, filled with Chantilly cream, and topped with marmalade and orange zest) and the Maple Pecan canelés (aged with organic Maple syrup and Madagascar Vanilla Bean and dressed with Chantilly cream and butter toasted pecan). They sell out pretty fast so make sure you come early to get your hands on these delectable babies before they run out!

Apart from the canelés, take a bite of the carrot cake (RM14/slice), salted caramel chocolate cake (RM14/slice) or brownie cookies called ‘brookies’ that are layered with chocolate, peanut butter or salted caramel (RM9). Finish it all off with a good cup of coffee and take in the lush greenery around you.

Choose from an all-star pizza line up: classic Margherita (RM25), Quattro Formaggi (RM39), Sicilian Anchovy (RM32), Chorizo Iberico Cular (non-halal / RM34) or Proof’s fan favorite Umbrian Black Truffle Pizza (RM41).
