Brace yourselves, folks. Due to the huge demand for cafes with interesting concepts in Malaysia, many foreign cafes have set their eyes to flourish here in Malaysia. Ampang was once known to be the hub for Korean food but this is no longer the case anymore. One of the Korean cafes which was once located in Ampang, however, has managed to persevere through tough competition, and it’s non other than Nabe Korean Bakery Cafe.
A rather underrated cafe which is currently situated in SS2, Nabe Korean Bakery Cafe is a family owned business which has been around for years. At Nabe Korean Bakery Cafe, do expect an array of Korean desserts and mains, coupled with top notch service. The name Nabe is actually a combination of two Korean words, which are ‘Na’ for ‘Nanun’ and ‘Be’ for ‘Beboon’ which loosely translated as sharing and rendering.
Nabe Korean Bakery Cafe first open doors about 6 years ago in Ampang but have since relocated to SS2 where youngsters which higher spending power are abundant . The business is manned by a team of mother-father-son trio: David Chong (the son) who hails from Korea and who also spearheaded the idea to start this business upon his graduation from University of Liverpool in UK. His mother, on the other hand, gain interests in baking since young whereas his father helped her around after he retire from the Korean Army.
To keep themselves relevant to their audiences, the family never fail to surprise their customers with new products and drinks to the public. Speaking of which, they’ve revamped most of their drink menu by introduing more Korean drinks into the market.
For starters, Milk Bingsu and Korean Latte are among the highly recommended desserts by David.
The sweetness taste of Peach Cake lingers in your mouth with every bite that you take.
Lately, they have also rolled out their very own Korean brunch menu. You might want to give their Kimchi Fried Rice a shot. Each of their set comes together with a glass of green tea.
In order to introduce their Korean deserts to a wider set of audiences, Nabe Korean Bakery Cafe aims to expand their business by branching out at strategic areas around town.
With years of experience as an entrepreneur himself, David is never frugal when it comes to sharing his wisdom gained through the years in the F&B scene. As F&B was somehow misconceived as a lucrative business, David strongly advise entrepreneurs out there to do ample researches before jumping into the bandwagon.
