They came from culinary background and some of them were taking classes at Indonesia in order to master the food preparation. Their operation hours are from 8AM to 8PM so they will cover from breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea time and also dinner.
Canang Café provide a specific main course for their customer which is Indonesian cuisine. As been recommended by the chef, we tried their best seller menu which is, Ayam Dendeng Belado and Daging Salai Masak Lemak and trust me their food are very very good until me myself had to add order for take away purpose.
Apart from Indonesian cuisine, they also provide western cuisine for western lovers like Pasta, Aglio Olio, Mac & Cheese, Carbonara and many more. Plus, the interior in their restaurant is very mesmerizing because Miss Amira intent for their customer to feel like eating at home while having their wonderful and unforgettable meal. Miss Amira also said that she is the one who design the layout of her restaurant.
Apart from dine in and take away service, Canang Café also provide catering service and can cover until 500 Pax. Miss Amira also said that the biggest order that she have completed is preparing food for Maybank Aeon Shah Alam branch for their Hari Raya celebration open house. She prepared for 550 Pax at that time and the cuisine requested are complete from appetizer, main course, until dessert. And she received a lot of good reviews and comment at that time.
Miss Amira also share their mission at Canang Café “at Canang, we wish to offer our personal rendition of Indonesian gourmet cuisine with an innovative gastronomic take on traditional cooking methods, fine Indonesian produce and the legacy of our shared food heritage. Moreover, we regard it as a personal challenge to help bring about a revival of Indonesian cuisine and let its distinctive flavours and particular regional character brighten up the world.” And their vision is, “For us, sustainability is not a lofty idea but a fundamental, and necessary, endeavor.
Our concept is about the food and drink of course, but it’s also about our team, our facilities, our practices, and the hundreds of decisions we make each day that affect the world around us. We believe it’s about finding a balance, which allows us to sustain our quest of making quality, accessible food, while also giving back to our community and the environment.”

And last before we leave, Miss Amira said that we don’t have to pay for our food and we resist at first because we still want to pay and in order for us to shut our mouth, Miss Amira said that we are the lucky customer in this month. I hope Canang Café will be known across the state and country because they have potential to strive in this business.
