Antipodean - pronounced "an·tip·o·de·an" (adj) means (1) coming from or relating to Australia or New Zealand (2) Ancient Greek: anti "opposed" pous "foot" opposite points on the globe.
Today I took some time out from the usual KL mega malls, because really there is only so much one can take before they all start to look the same, and decided to check out the shopping district of Bangsar. The streets lined with boutiques and trendy cafes were defiantly a nice change but it was the Kiwi owned coffee shop “Antipodean” I was really looking for. I’d heard so many people rave about the place that I had to check it out for myself and I’m certainly glad I did. Walking into the café I really felt like I had taken a trip back home, sipping coffee in Surry hills enjoying the sunshine and watching people go by. Despite being packed and queues out the door my delicious Flat white and serving of fresh fruit came quickly, hot and just the way I like it. Everything is fresh and made in-house from sourcing their coffee beans, roasting, grinding, brewing your cup of coffee, right down to cooking and baking. Then served up with that relaxed kiwi attitude and super friendly service.
And lucky for me the will be another antipodean opening its doors in Sydney for when I actually do get home...
