Food & Restaurant Review : Tester Laboratory Cafe & Bistro @ Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Who wants their drinks served in a science laboratory equipment like beaker, flasks, test tubes ?
You, you, you, & you? YAaaa, this is the place you must visit if you wanna get your Albert Einstein mood running.

Tester Laboratory Cafe & Bistro is Malaysia very 1st Laboratory themed cafe. Setting up this cafe is not an easy task said the owner, Jun Tham. Due to their very special theme cafe, our Malaysia government is skeptical that they will do something bad in this cafe but apparently it is not. They are selling fantastic food & drinks here.

The founder, Jun Tham (right) is giving a short introduction bout this restaurant
Most of the cafe out there are using black theme for their cafe but this cafe is not. The owner of the cafe wants something clean and sleek so the customer here can mainly focus to their food rather than the surrounding.

Tester Laboratory Cafe & Bistro in Bandar Menjalara, Kepong is a very new cafe to the neighborhood. They had only started their business on June 2015. As the name, theme & concept is still very new in Malaysia. Everything is still being tested out. Maybe the food or the drinks.

Why Science Test Lab concept?
Is because the owner hated science a lot during their school days and most of the science teacher never let the student touch or play with expensive science lab equipment. So due to their curiosity, a day, they must own their own equipment. When they are traveling to the Europe & Japan few years ago, they discovered several similar cafe and they think is very special. So far, no one has tried to open a Test Lab concept cafe in Malaysia and they wanna be the 1st.

Tester laboratory serves mainly Western cuisine. They are still in the processing of experimenting as in which dish would be good for the menu. Therefore, do not be surprised if you see a different menu on the consecutive visits. Having said that, Tester Laboratories also have the flexibility in the menu in order to suit your personal preference.

Lets have a look at their place

Before that, let me show you their menu. Due to the restaurant is still very new, they are still discovering new item & food to add in their menu. Dont be surprised if you see a different menu on the consecutive visits as i mention earlier ^^

Milk Shake - Chocolate - RM 14.00
Blended - Green Tea - RM 14.00
As you all can see, all the drinks here are served in science lab beaker, flask & testube. The amount is huge for me. Most of the drinks is served in a 500ml Flask & 600ml beaker. Taste wise. Very very rich because they are using a very huge amount of ingredient for their drinks. The owner tell us that each glass of milk shake contains 2 huge scoop of ice cream. No wounder they taste so good. For the one who are on diet, no need to worry, you may order their healthy drinks which serve in a right portion of 250ml in a florence flask ^^
