Whisk – Espresso Bar & Bake Shop is a small family-run cafe in Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya, Malaysia.

We decided to give it a try after passing by many times and having heard rave reviews about them. According to Rebecca Saw, the cafe is run by a mother and two sisters.

Recommended by one of the staff there, we decided to order the following: –

Mochaccino Con La Nutella
Mochaccino Con La Nutella

As the name sounds, Mochaccino Con La Nutella is a Mocha drink that is sweet and chocolaty. Nutella reminds me of the hazelnut chocolate spread, perhaps that’s what they use as the glass of Mochaccino is all covered with chocolate that tastes like Nutella. Mochaccino Con La Nutella is a little pricey at MYR 12.

Cafe Con Leche

Cafe Con Leche is a stronger coffee which is also more aromatic. According to the staff, Cafe Con Leche uses Cafe Bustelo blend from Cuba. Not that bad for MYR 9!

Bub's Cupcake

Like most cafes, Whisk also serves cakes, that’s where the last part of the name “Espresso Bar & Bake Shop” comes about.

Bub’s Cupcake is a banana cupcake with peanut butter layer on the outside and cream cheese filling in the inside! It’s quite the bomb, but don’t say I didn’t warn you — it is too good, so don’t have too much of it. It pairs quite well with Cafe Con Leche, if you ask me. Retailing at MYR 5, it’s quite pricey for a single cupcake.

Correction: Black Bottom Rose Creme changed to Bub’s Cupcake. Thanks for the update, Team Whisk!
