Insta-worthy food can be created almost anywhere, but if you want to check out some seriously pretty eateries in the Klang Valley that also come with really gorgeous surroundings for some good ol’ #OOTD shots, here are the ones to head to this weekend!
Happ CafE @ Tropicana Avenue
Known as a flower café, the brightly lit cafe’s main feature is the wooden house structure that’s filled with gorgeous flowers you can DIY your own bouquet with! There are also books you can borrow for some light reading, and stickers and postcards for purchase. You must try their Camomile Honey Cake when you’re there of course, if not to fulfil your sweet tooth, but simply because it’s just too cute!
Address: P-G-09, Tropicana Avenue, Persiaran Tropicana, Petaling Jaya
Opening hours: 10am – 11pm (except on Mondays)
Botanica + Co
You’ll be transported into a botanical garden as soon as you step into this gorgeous restaurant that’s been dominating Instagram feeds. Filled with natural sunlight and just the right touches of nature, everything from the indoor trees to the hand-woven rattan pendant lamps and pops of colours from flowers and plants all around will defo you go snap-happy! It also turns into a romantic dining spot at night as you tuck into hearty mains, sandwiches, salads and soups.

The Jungle City
The perfect place to duck in for a dose of greenery amidst the hustle and bustle that is KL city, The Jungle City was a warehouse that was converted into a cool double-storey hang-out. You’ll be treated to fairytale-like trees as you stroll on (faux) grass and enjoy a menu with a wide variety of both local and Western cuisine. Live bands also make the occasional appearance to further liven up the ambience!

Rustic, charming and idyllic perfectly describes this café that stands out with its nod to the heritage of Petaling Street. Every corner of this place is Instagrammable, from the ruined walls and mismatched furniture to the bright pops of colours and splash of bonatics. A simple menu with Asian flavours complements the place, but you’ll mostly go there to snap 174635 photos that’ll look great with any #ootd.
