Niniq's food is a mix of "western" and Indonesian fare. Their menu carries a good selection of salads, sandwiches, pastas, Indonesian food and non-alcoholic drinks. I've yet to be disappointed with anything I've ordered, my favourites being their sandwiches and soups. The French onion soup especially is delicious: robust & flavourful, although on the spicy side, somehow!

However, my favourite thing about Niniq's is their breads and desserts. The breads are baked fresh each day, and certainly they're the best place to find mouthwatering crusty bread (my faves!) Daily bread offerings are baguettes, wholemeal, multigrain loaves, and they'll come up with a variety of other interesting flavours, like green tea & red bean, or yam & omochi. Mouthwatering.

Their desserts are no less impressive. Not only are they droolsomely delicious, they are gorgeous to boot. I adore their chocolate truffle (cake) and chocolate bomb (i think is what they call it). Decadent, and wonderfully bitter chocolate desserts.

I've been told that baking is Niniq's (ie. the owner) passion.. and it certainly shows. She is a master of her craft.

The only downside to Niniq's is its location. It's located in a very busy part of town amongst many offices, and parking is hellish on week days. Not impossible, just very irritating. Still, I happily, willingly put up with the hassle just to have my Niniq lunch! However, parking is a breeze on weekends, as the office crowd is blessedly absent.

Opens late: 11.00am. Closed on Sundays. Average price per person for a 3 course with drinks ranges from RM20-RM40. Price ranges: soups (~RM8), sandwiches, pastas & Indonesian food (~RM12-RM20). Definitely value for money, considering other eateries charge the same for inferior fare.
