Flingstones Cafe, SS15 Subang Jaya

Ever since I moved to my current address with Kevin, we’ve been leaving our footprints all over PJ, and SS15 especially, is an area we visit a lot for its large amount of eateries, local and non-local alike. It’s quite a buzzing spot, owing to the college in the vicinity. Which is why there are a lot more interesting cafes there now than ever before. And though you’ll be spoilt for choice for food here, one I would highly recommend is Flingstones Cafe. Especially if you love pork, and Star Wars.

 

The day we visited, we had only just watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens (my baby is a die hard SW Fan) so imagine our excitement upon receiving this:

 

Darth Vader Coffee Cubes with Hot Milk (RM15)

 

You pour the warm milk into the glass and wait for the coffee cubes to melt. While the concept isn’t new, using Darth Vader ice tray is definitely a great idea to cash in with the current SW hype. The coffee itself was pretty robust and aromatic, and I enjoyed that without sugar. I’m not sure how long this will be available for, but all I can say is hurry before they take it off the menu!
Melting DV

There’s also the Stormtrooper version:

But this time it’s the opposite, the Stormtrooper cubes are made with milk, and you get to pour hot chocolate over it.

 

Ok enough with Star Wars. Moving along to their other drinks:

 

Dirty Gingerman- Chilled Milk with houseblend espresso and ginger Syrup which comes with a mini gingerbread man. RM13

 

I believe this was their Christmas Special and I’m not sure whether it will still be on the list. But safe to say, I’m quite pleased with their houseblend.
Piccolo Latte RM9.00
Just your regular latte, but the coffee is anything but ordinary.

Putting Gula Melaka into coffee is a nice touch, it’s not too prominent which is good because we don’t want it to overpower the
aroma of coffee. This one is a novelty and I’d gladly have it again if ever I crave sweet coffee. (Photo from Sharon because I accidentally killed my SD Card and lost some of my photos)

 

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the food prices here are actually quite reasonable. I guess they do have to cater for students after all. First, we had the only salad on their menu:
Anytime salad (RM12): Shredded Cabbage, Egg, Bacon Bits, Cherry Tomatoes and Mesclun leaves, finished with a generous drizzle of roast sesame dressing. It’s so my kind of thing. Everything worked well together and I can tell you that I went home and replicated a similar version. Yum! I can actually have it anytime.

 

The next item was what I’ve been dying to try: The “Chu Yao Char” Angel Hair (RM18). Chu Yao Char refers to crispy pork lard and you cannot imagine how much I love this stuff. About time someone puts it in a pasta! Apart from the crispy nuggets of gold, there’s also bacon bits, shredded zucchini and cherry tomatoes. There is absolutely nothing to fault and I’d gladly finish all of it. Cholesterol? Animal fat isn’t bad for you as long as you do it in moderation.

 

Oink Oink Ribs RM33(full) RM28(half). Ours was a full rack, and it comes with a sour plum sauce, sweet potato fries and a mini salad. Really value for money. The ribs are sufficiently tender and has a touch of smokiness which I like, but I think the sauce is a little too sweet for my liking.

 

The next dish was the highlight of our meal:
Porky Fat Rice XL (RM20), their version of Nasi Lemak (no-holds-barred with their porcine dishes I see) with Mama’s Rempah Pork Belly, minced pork sambal, hard boiled eggs, cucumber, kangkung, ikan bilis and peanuts. First of all, that MINCED PORK SAMBAL! One bite of that and my eyes instantly lit up. It’s everything a sambal should be and more, I want it on everything. That pork belly though, sinful, delicious, aromatic, a porcine lover’s dream. Rice was cooked to perfection and the whole dish was well-executed. If they sell the sambal by the jars, I’ll definitely buy!
“Kapowww” Spaghetti RM18 was another fusion pasta dish and here it’s paired with Kung Pow Chicken. It’s a little bit on the sweet side, but I do love the heat to deliver that punch and a bit of wok hei to elevate the dish.

 

Babi Fried Rice RM18.

 

As for putting crispy pork lard in fried rice? Another double thumbs up for me! Along with lap cheong and crispy bacon on top, this fried rice was very well done indeed. The addition of century egg is a nice touch and complemented the dish so well. Another round of applause for these guys please.

 

Big Bang Breakfast RM25 may not resemble the Korean boy band in any way, but it is choked full of ingredients: bbq sausage, pork bacon, hashbrown, saute mushroom, porky baked beans (!), salad; comes with either scrambled egg/ sunny side up. The Porky baked beans sure had us wanting to dance to “Fantastic Baby” (sorry, I had to). Disclaimer: I may or may not have that song playing in the background as I typed this. 
Alright, moving right along to the desserts. First, the Smooth Criminal (gotta love all the creative names):

 

Essentially an Affogato, this version comes with Haagen Dazs Vanilla Ice Cream, Coffee Jelly and Houseblend Espresso.
By the way, I heard that Affogato actually originated from the Philipines. An Italian went to a cafe in Manila and ordered a coffee with ice cream because it was hot. So this came, and he got curious and asked the waiter: “What is this?” And the waiter said: “Sir, Affogato……” And the Italian waved him off. The waiter went back to his friend, and said: “I wanted to tell you A-Ffo-Ga-To put the coffee into the ice cream.”
You can blame this on Kevin.

 

Bananarama Gila Melaka RM12. Banana desserts are my weakness by the way (I think you know that I have plenty of weaknesses), and this one is very good indeed.

 

One night with the Cendolman (RM12). Not sure if I actually want to spend one night with the Cendolman himself, but this cake, I don’t mind.
Tiramichu RM12, which is made in house. I didn’t get to try this because I was getting super stuffed by then.

 

It was one of the nicest meal I’ve had in ages, and we will not hesitate to come back again. At least for the Porky Nasi Lemak. Mmmm!
