Starbucks Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino
Starbucks Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino is one of the two new Frappuccinos introduced by Starbucks Malaysia for the summer.
First sip, Starbucks Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino tastes like Starbucks Azuki Frappuccino which was introduced about five years ago.
Despite the color, the drink tastes sweet which overwhelms the green tea flavor, making it different from the normal green tea.
Also available is Hojicha + Tea Jelly Frappuccino. Retails at MYR 15.00 for Tall, MYR 16.00 for Grande and MYR 17.00 for Venti at all Starbucks in Malaysia and Singapore for a limited time.

McCafe has finally reached Malaysia’s shore with its first McCafe opened for business in McDonald’s Kota Damansara on June 16, 2012. The cafe opens for business from 7am-12am daily.
McCafe Kota Damansara
First McCafe in Malaysia
McCafe’s signage brightly lightened
The menu is familiar and almost similar to the McCafes in Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong and Australia.
Majority of the hot drinks are available in three sizes — small (8oz), medium (12oz) and large (16oz) except Espresso and Espresso Macchiato.
The cold drinks are available in two sizes — medium (12oz) and large (16oz) with a one ringgit price difference between the two.
Franke coffee machines
Selection of cakes and muffins
Among the cakes available are Black Forest Cake, Mocha Marble Cheese Cake, Blueberry Cheese Cake — all priced at RM 9.90 per slice. Banana Walnut Muffin, Double Chocolate Chip Muffin and Carrot Raisin Muffin are available for RM 5.50 each. Also available are Brownie (RM 5.50).
Cappuccino tasted quite decent without any additional sugar or syrup. It was quite flavorful and aromatic and neither too strong or mild.
Medium-sized Iced Mocha
Iced Mocha was delightful with its rich coffee and chocolate flavors but a little sweet as expected.
Mocha Frappe sample
We also had the opportunity to try the Mocha Frappe through the samples distributed. Frankly, it has too much whip cream it was hard to distinguish.

McCafe signage is also seen on the post
Verdict: McCafe has finally come to Malaysia. The coffee they serve are decent and affordable. Ambiance-wise, it can definitely improved by adding a door between the Playland and the restaurant to limit the noise from the Playland like how McCafe’s in other countries did. Additional flavors for the cakes such as Cookies & Cream Cheesecake would be certainly welcomed. All in all, McCafe may not be able to challenge established cafes like Starbucks Coffee or The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, but they are certainly welcomed by all. After all, it serves great coffee at a fraction of a price.
