Haikara Style Cafe and Bakery, Subang

At the end of a tiring week we decided to re-visit this quaint little japanese cafe at Subang called Haikara. It seems that they are still going strong and has grown bigger, taking over another shop lot. This is no surprise as they serve very homely japanese food and great pastries and bread!

We start with simple, almost zen-like, appetizers. mushroom soup served in very interesting cups and fresh salad with just a right dollop of dressing. Nothing too heavy, just perfect as starters.

The chicken croquette is done just right, not too dry not soggy. The Curry Chicken rice is one of the best I have ever tasted. There is a certain something extra in the curry sauce compared to the others that I have had. Maybe it's the additional texture. And you can choose your preference of the spiciness for your curry. The chicken is fresh and perfectly fried. This is my ultimate comfort food on a rainy night.

This is fusion food yet it tastes so deliciously home made. Spaghetti with Beef Stew Set came with a warm butter roll. You can tear the butter roll in pieces and dip with the stew sauce, excellent! The butter roll taste very much different and better than the one sold in other bakery shops. Beef is tender and the sauce is not too heavy, perfect sauce paired with spaghetti!

Finally we finished our meal with this exquisite dessert called 3 Color Cream Puff. Though it's not litereally 3 colours but the soft fluffy cream puff is filled with 3 types of creams, Whipped cream, red bean paste and custard cream.
There is a something quintessentially japanese about the food here even though the menu is not necessarily what we call classic japanese. The attention to detail in food preparation definitely is.

We plan to try out the charcoal roasted coffee and the Haikara Steak on our next visit!
We hope this gem of a cafe stay this way for a long time to come.
