So, my friends have decided to jio to meet for coffee on the 5th floor of 47 Jalan Pemimpin one day.
Wait, isn’t that an industrial estate? And isn’t 5th floor too ulu for a cafe?
It took me some time to find the place, especially when Google Maps led me to the BYD Charging stations outside the building.
And the exploration continues, trying to locate the single passenger lift that will lead me to the 5th floor of this relatively old industrial building.
Frankly speaking, I was quite skeptical but my friends claimed that it’s a different “world” when I stepped through the doors.
Indeed, I was surprised when I was instantly transported from a slightly eerie surroundings into a warm and cosy hideout.
With just a coffee bar and a space co-owned by womenswear – Shop Weekend Cheoks, the space is transformed into a lively area with soothing music, chill ambience and the aroma of coffee beans.
The coffee bar eludes a Japanese zen-like vibe, with white draping cloth, wooden folding screen and a straw mat in this cosy 10 seaters space.
Can I say that every corner is an Instagram #OOTD spot?
MeeTinG is opened by 3 brothers, namely Mikey, Timothy and Gabriel and together with their cousin at Shop Weekend Cheoks, they transformed this space into their passion projects.
And the interesting thing is, MeeTinG doesn’t have fixed opening hours and their operating schedule will change on a monthly basis, so do check their Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/mtg_coffee/ for the latest update.
Currently in its soft launch phase by tipping basis, only 3 drinks are available in hot and iced version.
Using Arabica beans from Kenya for their Americano, Latte and V60 Filtered Coffee, each cup of coffee is served in double paper cups to allow diners to bring home the clean, outer cup if they wished.
I liked the emphasis on blue and white, from their coffee bar top, printing on their paper cups, straws to their coasters, which gives a sense of tranquil and peacefulness.
Oh, and the cup of Latte I had was decent, medium bodied, slightly acidic, robust and fruity.
So, will MeeTinG be the place you will meet up with friends for a cup of coffee?
