Well hello there all you delicious people ! :)
Hope everyone is having a good day.
Sau Yip brought me to Pickle & Fig (click to be directed to their FB page) late last week and we both thought that it would be good to get the word out about the 3 week-old cafe.
The hipster like cafe is located along Taman Tun Dr. Ismail and can be found easily. I really wish I could give you directions like how I did for Tofu but I was sleeping in the car.
My first impression was that it was a very dimly lit shop. Like somewhere chi-ku-peks (ham sap lous) bring their prey so they can touch touch here and there while eating. But I think they just forgot to turn their lights because later into the meal the cafe lights were switched to a brighter dial.
For now Pickle & Fig only serves sandwiches but we were excited to hear that they would be expanding their menu in the near future. Desserts maybe?
Sau Yip got himself a smoked turkey roll & cheddar panini for Rm 15.
We both didn't know what a panini was but the friendly waiter was more than happy to explain. In fact he did more than explain and talked about the ingredients and bread using fancy gourmet terms while we both just smiled and nod.
It turned out to be a rather masculine meal. Very meaty and it tasted very bulky. Like something I would imagine Fred Flinstone eating after coming home form work.
"A panini is a hot pressed sandwich, something like a Quesadilla lah" friendly waiter guy.
Cheddar Cheese, Lots or Turkey Ham and Mushrooms. rated 8/10
I had a smoked salmon & cream cheese sandwich for Rm 19.
This dish was fresh , simple and definitely did not feel as bulky as the turkey panini. It tasted delicious and was enough to fill my tummy but it was not something new. It's similar to other salmon sandwiches I have tried.
All sandwiches are accompanied with a small salad and hand cut potato wedges
I also had an ice lemon tea to accompany my sandwich for Rm6.
Pickle & Fig fact : No sugar is added into any of their dishes or drinks. Not even their ice lemon tea. You'll have to ask if you want any. Pickle & Fig supports healthy and good tasting diets!
The cafe is said to have really good smoothies as well but we did not try it because we were under a budget.

Just a side note, do you see the guy in the left corner? This is the only picture I have of him not staring straight into my lens. Don't know what's his problem.
If you're going to visit Pickle & Fig for lunch, you can try out their lunch set offer. It changes everyday so you may go everyday for the entire week.
Pickle & Fig opens daily from 10am-10pm on Thursdays to Sundays and 10am-11pm on Fridays and Saturdays.
They are open for coffee and tea as well.
