Greco All’Italiana is illy’s funky version of an iced cappuccino. No doubt it is better than your regular iced cappuccino as not only it is well-balanced between ice, milk and espresso, it has a little bonus of chocolate powder to top it all. Greco All’Italiana retails at MYR 13.

While the coffee are great, there are nothing to shout about for the food. Spaghetti Carbonara was not too bad, better than the average cafes that serve pasta but I expect it to be a whole lot better since Espressamente Illy ought to be Italian. Spaghetti Carbonara costs MYR 20.

Verdict: Amazing coffee. I’ll stick to my fave Neve Fondete the next time.

Nescafe Cappuccino is not sweet but that’s how a good cup of cappuccino should taste like. It’s somehow slightly frothy and you can easily feel that in your tongue after a cuppa. At MYR 24.20, Nescafe Cappuccino comes in 10 Mug Sized Servings, which translate to about MYR 2.42 per mug. Not too bad. Mind you though, other flavors may come in 8 Mug Sized Servings instead. Still, it’s quite worthy for great gourmet coffee.

Available at Mercato @ Pavilion KL from RM 22.90 to RM 24.20.

Delicious’ Coffees Are Delicious

Delicious does not only serve good pasta but it has very decent coffee.

G’day Iced Coffee sounds funny but the drink is better than it sounds — with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top of it, the drink sure doesn’t disappoint. The Iced Cappuccino somewhat does not have a distinguished taste from the G’day Iced Coffee. The cappuccino flavor is simply not there.

Anyways, at RM 9.90 each, both drinks are safe bet for a restaurant.
