FunOK Cafe

FunOK Cafe

I sense this article will be a little different from what I usually write. Why?

Simply because I don’t know if I should write an article on the food quality of this place, or should I write about the setup taste of this place. Nevertheless, I will try my best to deliver my experience of Fun OK Cafe to you, like I always do.

With a name like that, you would’ve expected it to be a karaoke or something. But if I am not mistaken, it’s a direct translation from a cantonese word that meant … Return Home.

FunOK Cafe

A friend told me about this place. A queer place. A place like home. However, I beg to differ. Firstly, my home does not look anything like that. Secondly, why would anyone want to visit a cafe that resembles his/her home? Wouldn’t they feel more like home in the comfort of their own home?

See.

I told you this article is going to be different. Now you’ll have to live through the rest of my babbles. Might as well .. since you’ve already started. Fun OK Cafe is no doubt a cute place to visit. You’ll not miss the bright green signage as you drive along the Connaught main road in Cheras. Located on the top floor, you’ll have to endure 3 flights of stairs to get up there. As you enter the cafe, you can help but noticing folks dressed in pajamas smiling and greeting you. You then realize they are actually the waiters in this ‘homely’ establishment.

The surprise doesn’t end there. Look around and you’ll spot washing machines, half-cut barrels, toilet seats decorated as dining tables and chairs. You’ll not find duplicate sets of dining tables as every single one of them is unique, in it’s own …. fancy ways. A black old refrigerator stands next to the entrance and when you opens it up, you’ll find boxes of toys instead of chilled drinks or food.

Ordering food in here is not easy task either. Menu comes in form of photo albums with great looking food photographs. Food choices are plentiful but limited to finger foods and light main courses.

Fried noodles, fried rice, western food …. basically a good mix of eastern and western. I decided to try a good variety so I choose to start with Seafood Tomyam Soup and proceeded with Chicken Chop and finally Colorful Fried Rice. The Seafood Tomyam Soup was pretty normal, not too spicy but quite sour. Tasted like it was prepared from stocks … tomyam stocks. Maggi maybe.

As for the Chicken Chop, nothing spectacular. Fries. Salad. And a slice of chicken meat with plenty of sauce. The Colorful Fried Rice. Sigh. I don’t even feel like mentioning it. Dry. Tasteless. Condiments …. almost non-existence.

Chicken Chop

Colorful Fried Rice

Anyway, final verdict is ….

It’s a nice experience to have but I won’t repeat my visits. Then again, that’s just my thoughts. It’s just ideal spot for chatting, or just idling the afternoon away surfing the internet. Did I also mention FREE Wi-Fi ?

Here’s what I paid for my meals ….

Colorful Fried Rice – RM16.90 (A ridiculously priced item!)
Seafood Tomyam Soup – RM7.90
Chicken Chop – RM11.90
Ice Water – RM0.80 (After paying all that, my wallet left RM1.00 .. so had to drink ice water only)

Here’s where they are …..

    I can’t imagine pajama-clad servers. Much have been said about populace in some countries in Asia wondering the streets in the evening-wear i.e. their pajamas. Not for me. Thanks.

    just another ‘concept’ restaurant.. but i think the fried rice like that charging for RM16.90 over there in Cheras is really ridiculous.. the presentation of the food doesn’t make it look appetizing.. anyway, if i happen to be around that area i’ll drop in for a cuppa tea to check out that place :p

    Well, food is part of the experience and if they’re not going to pay good attention to the quality of the food, no point going for the ambiance alone.

    Happy Niu Year!
