Greyhound Cafe

Greyhound is another popular cafe started off in Bangkok.

Like any other cafes, they have a wide range of food and drinks. This place serves alcohol, but not quite ready for beer yet on their first week of opening.

Complicated Noodles (RM26)

My favourite of all for the day. Complicated indeed, lettuce wrapped with noodle, minced meat, coriander and lime/chilli/garlic sauce. It's like the Thai version of Chinese Lettuce Wraps.

 It is very unique and possibly the only item I find which justifies the price.

Noodle with Braised Beef (RM26)

Just your normal Thai noodles, as there are so many variations of it. Portion is probably about 4 bowls of Boat Noodle's Portion, but the price is almost 3 times of it.

Tom Yam Goong (RM27)

Super small portion - only as big as your rice bowl, with one huge prawn and maybe two small mushrooms. It was really normal, just like another tom yam and it is nothing fantastic. RM27, for just that. This dish is not even worth half the price!

Spicy Beef Balls & Celery (RM18)

The sauce is very appetising, sourish and it made celery so much easier to eat. A very refreshing salad to start off. Beef balls ain't fantastic, just like the ones we can get from the market.

This table for the 3 of us is definitely too small. 4 dishes with wine and we are already struggling. Maybe they don't encourage people to share as the portions are quite small. Us on the other hand loves to share, so we can try a few dishes in one visit.

Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Cake (RM22)

Very smooth chocolate cake... I would normally avoid chocolate or caramel because it's too sweet for me, but this is just so different!! The sea salt neutralises the overall and it was made to be not that sweet for people like me! Though I have to admit, RM22 for a slice of cake is ridiculous.

Coconut Crepe (RM22)

The crepes are not that great. Crepes are slightly too thick. If it is thinner with more layers of crepes inside it would have been prefect. There is real coconut meat inside, which gives that natural coconut taste. Again, RM22 for that slice of cake is just ridiculous. 

Banofee (RM18)

Nothing special. Very tiny portion of Banoffee served in the jar. It is very pretty, but not as wonderful when we started to dig in.

Desserts itself already went up to RM60ish. It was OK but not that fantastic for that kind of price.

Cakes in Klang Valley are at most going for RM14 - RM18 per slice. RM22 for a cafe cake.. Uhh... Not sure if there will be a second time.

The wine too, is way too overpriced for a cafe.

Overall food is alright, there are many selections, from Thai to Western. But again, some of the prices are just exorbitant... as though we are going for some fine dine. Dewakan's portion may be small, but the price justifies because it is really good and you can tell the amount of effort they put to decorate the dish. Here in Greyhound it's just a very normal cafe (well, it's quite beautiful inside) but the prices are just a little shocking for the portion with minimal effort to decorate.
