Pelita, Ipoh.

It was raining and we needed a breakfast place. There is a PELITA inside Tesco Ipoh. Thus we decided to go to Pelita for breakfast followed by a Tesco shopping trip.

This is a fairly new cafe.  BED stands for Bread, Espresso and Dessert. As usual the gold standard for any cafe is their latte. If you look at them preparing it, the baristas are serious and look professional. I hope my cup would be above average. The latte really did not disappoint me. However, somehow … Read moreLet’s go to BED together, Ipoh.
