Many things have changed between February 2021 and September 2021. The freedom to travel, dining in restaurants and café-hopping are definitely among the things we most miss during the lockdowns imposed by the government as a way to control the raging COVID-19 pandemic.

Being stuck in the Taman Desa neighbourhood, Kuala Lumpur (KL) during lockdown make me realise that it is necessary for people to adapt to the circumstances and instead start seeking solace within the confines of our homes and the neighbourhood where we are hunkered down. Interestingly, after some research and cautious exploration, I find out the existence of noteworthy establishments within Taman Desa that I have yet to try to satisfy my epicurean cravings. Hence, the following is a list of places around Taman Desa that serve great coffee, freshly baked pastries and pleasant cuisines that are halal or pork-free that you can head to once the lockdown is lifted!
