‘Piu Piu Piu’ is a hidden cafe in KL that makes you stand and talk to strangers

To all KL-ites who are into new spots for coffee, Instagram shots and some art fix, ‘Piu Piu Piu’ is the new place you should check out as soon as possible.
Located on the 2nd floor of ZhongShan Building along Jalan Kampung Attap, this tiny cafe is the newest kid in town which opened only a few days ago on 17th May 2017.

When you arrive at the building, look for the stairs entrance and walk up to 2nd floor. Once you see artsy pieces hanging on the walls, you will know that you have arrived at the right level.

I’m sure all Malaysians know what ‘Piu Piu Piu’ means. You might even do the pistol hand gestures when you read the name out loud. It’s actually the brainchild of the barista (who is also the owner) who calls himself UNAGI.

Before you raise any expectations, I just want to tell you that it’s a very very tiny cafe with only 2-3 seats inside. You might need to just stand and hang around outside at the walkway and talk to other customers who are also struggling to not look awkward like you.

But hey, after a few moments, you will realise that it’s actually kinda fun! UNAGI got this inspiration from the standing bars in Tokyo whereby customers can make friends by talking to each other and exchange ideas, talk jokes and even start planning on travel trips together.

The cafe currently serves coffee, tea and beers.

Their signature drink, ‘Lemon Sour’ is actually a blend of lemon preserved for 5 days in their own-made soda. For those who want a kick, try the ‘Lemon Sour Plus’ which consists of a dash of shochu (alcohol).

I ordered the flat white during my visit. I like how it tasted bold and strong. Not acidic at all. Exactly how I like my flat white.
