Little Street Cafe, Jalan Irrawaddy – Simple with a Special Twist Dining

Little Street Cafe is located out of the main street of cafes and restaurants. It is tucked in between the old houses along Jalan Irrawaddy. Little Street Cafe has been running for almost a year. The name “Little Street” came into the picture as the owner wanted to have the taste of street food incorporated into the dishes and make it a fusion cuisine.

Little Street Cafe has a cozy dining area which is not too big. If you are planing for some functions, please call in to make reservation to avoid disappointment.

For rabbit lovers, there is a special corner with rabbits running freely to keep the diners occupied while waiting for food.

These rabbits looked adorable and friendly.

One of the selling points here is for each set meal, you are entitled to free-flow of salad….

and free-flow of soup of the day…..

as well as free-flow coffee…..

Norwegian Grilled Salmon Fillet (180-220gm) Served with Butter WHITE WINE Sauce – RM37

The freshly grilled salmon was served with appetizing white wine sauce. The sauce paired very well with the salmon. Also serving together with it was potato wedges and some greens.

Lamb slices with Red Wine BBQ Sauce – RM30

The simple marination of salt and pepper with amazing red wine BBQ sauce are more than enough to make this dish a successful one. The most important factor of this dish is the tenderness of the lamb was just nice and not too chewy.

House-style Agio E Olio with mixed seafood – RM29

The spaghetti was cooked with shrimps, clams and some cherry tomatoes, then topped with generous portion of cheese powder. The aglio olio at Little Street Cafe tasted slightly different. There was a hint of spiciness with herbs that you will need to try out to know the difference.

One-POT seafoods pasta combo set for 2 pax portion with Spicy Arrabbiata Sauce – RM69

The way it was cooked was similar to agile olio above. The only difference was there were more shrimps and clams on this dish.

Check out the photo below that shows the serving of this dish was bigger than a human’s head.

Chicken Chop with POMODORO sauce – RM25

This is not a regular pomodoro sauce originated from Italy. The Pomodoro sauce at Little Street Cafe has been ‘twisted’ with some “balacan” (shrimp paste) and spices. This is something that I would come back for.

Overall, this seating area of this place was very cozy. The pricing of the food here was reasonable while the simple twist of certain dishes here has made this place special on its own. The drawback is there are not many parking lots. Although car parks are available in front and behind of this shop, it is still not sufficient when it comes to peak hour.
