illycrema is recently introduced by Espressamente illy. It is so good that one is just not enough.

Chilla Cup Filled Pretzel with Pepperoni

Chilla Cup at Quill 7 Sentral is a great place for a good cup of coffee and nice breakfast.

Compared to our first visit to Chilla Cup, the food was less salty this time.

Like our previous visit, we upgraded our coffee to Latte for an additional MYR 3.00 each.

We chose beef bacon, hash brown and scrambled eggs for our continental breakfast set this time.

The beef bacon was less salty and less crispy than the first time, but it was better this time. The hash browns were delicious while the scrambled egg was also less salty much to our likings.

We also ordered breakfast set B or Filled Pretzel set with pepperoni (beef) as our preferred filling. As the pretzel also has cheese, the mix of both cheese and pepperoni has made it tastes like pepperoni pizza. Having pepperoni pizza for breakfast was perhaps a bit too filling.

Besides pepperoni, one can also choose apple cinnamon, sweet corn, sweet potato, red bean or hotdog (chicken) for the filling.

Verdict: The food was less salty than our previous visit. We were glad the management took notice of our review and improved the food. We truly enjoyed the food and the coffee, of course.

As we weren’t a fan of Americano nor Tea, we upgraded our hot drinks to Latte.

The Latte was pleasant and aromatic as it was brewed from freshly roasted beans.

Breakfast set D consists of continental breakfast served with toast. For MYR 9.90, it comes with one choice of add-on sides while for MYR 12.90, it comes with any 3 add-on sides, MYR 15.90 comes with any 5 and MYR 17.90 comes with any 7. Add-on sides consist of beef bacon, hash brown, chicken sausage, baked beans, egg (omelete/scrambled), grilled tomatoes or sauteed mushrooms.

The beef bacon was quite salty, at times, I thought I was eating salty fish. The egg was also a bit on the salty side, so was the chicken sausage.

Pretzel set (Parmesan)
Pretzel set (Parmesan)

Breakfast set A consists of pretzel set and the flavors available are plain, original, cinnamon sugar or Parmesan.

Parmesan pretzel was also quite salty and cheesy as well.

Verdict: The coffee was good, the ambiance was not too bad as it is always nice to see white-collar workers walk past by starring at us enjoying a good cup of coffee at rush hour. However, the food was a bit on the salty side and could be better with less salt. Still, the breakfast sets are a steal as normally a cup of Latte/Cappuccino would cost around MYR 9.50 – MYR 10.50

Update: We visited Chilla Cup for a second time and found the food was less salty this time around.

Besides at Quill, Chilla Cup are also located at Solaris Mont Kiara and Subang Avenue Shopping Mall. Unlike Quill 7 Sentral which opens only on weekdays, the other branches open till late and on the weekends too.
