Strangers at 47 @ Section 17, PJ

There is something enchanting about the calm atmosphere and jovial staff at this cosy cafe, which sits along the less-populated row of shop lots in Section 17. What we adore even more is the concept behind this cafe--  It is known for its variety of homemade crepe-based savouries and desserts, which go well with the usual coffee staples. 

...no strangers. Only friends we haven't met. 
- Strangers at 47 aims to be a place where people meet and bond over good food,
where strangers become friends.

Boasting a vintage industrial look, the cafe is tastefully decorated with old warehouse pendant lights and wooden furniture to give the space a more cosy, intimate feelings. I must agree that Strangers at 47 makes a perfect setting to gather friends and family alike for sumptuous, soul-soothing treats. 

To enjoy more of the natural light, al fresco dining is available right at the entrance of the shop.

Matcha Latte @ RM10

They serve up an array of coffees using high quality beans but it is the Matcha Latte which is a show stopper. Interestingly, here you can choose to replace the usual full cream milk with soy milk for stronger aroma and extra flavour although the concoction may not give the similar frothy texture.

Hot Chocolate @ RM10

Non-coffee drinkers can opt for a delicious cup of creamy hot chocolate with rich cocoa flavour or fresh juices. It is not as full bodied as I'd expect, but it pairs well with both savoury and sweet fusion crepes.

SAVOURY
Forget about the conventional French crepes; those served here are uniquely paired with various ingredients and taste heavenly! Just like the restaurant's name, each of the crepes on the menu has fun and quirky names. The best thing is, they diligently introduce new, seasonal items every few months, so you'll always be in for a treat.

A Hen’s Crush @ RM17 

We start with the crowd's favourite A Hen's Crush, for an exquisite yet exhilarating mix of textures and flavours. It features a well-balanced combination of carb, protein and fibre as there are pan-seared chicken, sweet capsicums, golden hash brown, sunny side-up and citrus-cucumber-onion salad wrapped within the chilli-flaked crepe. 

Each bite is robust in flavours, especially when paired with house-made spicy tangy sauce that exudes delicious smoky aroma. Soft, moist and comfortingly warm, the savoury crepe is slightly cheesy and melts in the mouth with the fresh ingredients. 


The portion can be very filling for one, and group sharing is recommended if you wish to try different types of crepes that are equally well loaded with mushrooms, seafood or beef. 


Shore To Please @ RM21.50

Seafood lovers can rejoice as Shore To Please is served with sizable cajun tiger prawns and crunchy battered squids along with other condiments such as spinach, caramelised onion, roasted cherry tomato and bits of salted egg yolk.

The seafood here is fresh and adds pleasant crunchy textures to the creamy spinach. The salted egg yolk bits are nice additions to further lift up the overall taste of the dish, as commonly seen in the Chinese cooking style for seafood. 


SWEET

Dessert fiends will be spoilt with choices when it comes to sweet crepes because they serve up sweet potato crepe, apple crumble in crepe form and many more. Alternatively, you can choose from an array of delectable cakes, home-baked by the owner's mum which completes the coffee experience. 

Dark Side @ RM10

If you are going less adventurous in flavours, do try the Dark Side, a chocolate crepe with dark chocolate spread, white chocolate curls, orange caramel and vanilla ice-cream. The chocolate filling is so thick that every mouthful is melting good with rich creamy cocoa flavour. Despite of that, the sweetness is just right and does not overwhelm the senses.

The Mandarin @ RM11

Strangers at 47 also offers seasonal items off the menu, and we have The Mandarin during Chinese New Year. The orange crepe is stuffed with mandarin orange cream cheese and orange chunks, surrounded by sprinkles of dark chocolate shave and pomegranate, and finally topped with vanilla ice cream. The festive fruit adds a delicious tang to the ultra creamy cheese spread and whets our appetite with refreshing fruity flavour. 


Verdict:
1. I love the concept of pairing almost anything with the crepes and hence creating interesting combinations which are one-of-a-kind!
2. Forget about the common belief of having crepes as snacks; Just head over to Strangers at 47 and enjoy a whole new experience of unique crepes!
3. Recommended: All of them! Seriously both savoury and sweet crepes are excellent and worth to die for!
