Tropicana City Mall is fast becoming one of the favorite places for the gang to hangout during those lazy weekend afternoons. The smallish mall is conveniently located at a pretty central location at the junction of SS2 and Uptown, with ample parking, reasonable crowd volume, and most importantly, good coffee!

The good coffee of course, is the Hawaiian chain – Bad Ass Coffee

Update 2019: this place is closed

Bad Ass Coffee is located at the end of the Mall closest to the office tower

Bad Ass Coffee is probably one of the very few places that serves Kona coffee – a type of coffee beans cultivated all the way from Hawaii. It is one of the most sought after coffees in the world, but via some wonderful cosmic arrangement, the relatively unsophisticated coffee drinking crowd here in Malaysia gets a franchise.

The menu at Bad Ass Coffee is actually quite extensive, there are quite a variety of normal coffee, chocolate/vanilla drinks, and of course, the 100% Kona Coffee that is sold at a bit of a premium (RM 15.90 and up if I remember correctly). The 100% kona is very flavorful and rather kao, Terence once had it in the evening and couldn’t sleep till 5am. FHL

The best thing about iced coffee there is that ice cubes made of coffee is used, so your drinks will never ever gets diluted. That alone is a very good reason to choose Bad Ass over Β the more famous chain that spots the green and white logo of Medusa.

While I haven’t had many meals at Bad Ass, I can vouch that the oxtail soup is in fact, super awesome. At RM 9.90, you get a bowl of really kick ass oxtail soup with quite a few chunks of, well, oxtail. There’re three slices of garlic bread too.

Seatings are available both indoor and al fresco. There’s even a smoking section with really comfortable sofa and power outlets for those who likes to bring their laptops too.

  25. via,
    Ooo IOI? haven’t been there for a long time!

    cool ;D

  26. My first Bad Ass coffee was in Singapore. And i love it. But then when i visit Bas Ass in Tropicana City Mall that day, i feel disappointed, the coffee is a bit tasteless. May be it is my unlucky day. May be now is better. πŸ™‚

    I think their coffee was much better when they first opened up. Somehow, the quality seemed to have gone down a little. Nevertheless, it still kick ass especially compared to the more ‘commercial’ coffee joints.

    I love their foot long sausages and their Hawaiian/Bad Ass toast was surprisingly good too. The tom yam spaghetti can be a tad spicy if memory serves me right. Have fun trying out more of their food!

  28. Sandy,
    maybe! try again! πŸ˜€

    ooo I gotta try their sausage next time though. πŸ˜‰

  29. lol so many funny coffe outlets coming up these days.. but all in KL.. too bad i cant try them at the moment.. bad ass! =P

  30. kenwooi,
    hahaha yah, move to KL πŸ˜›

  31. tcmsucks

    mall is nothing to shout about. beware, the cinema is full of thieves. i just had my ipod touch stolen from the cinema yesterday. and when i went to report it, i was asked to write in a book where i found the names of plenty of other victims. golden screens management was not too helpful either. not going back. ever.

    • Hahha i happen to still like the mall. losing stuff at GSC has nothing to do with how the mall or bad ass coffee is tho

  32. coffee ice cubes…GENIUS! πŸ’‘

  33. 😎 i liked the food there coz i was working as a chef there.wonderfull food and drinks like mocha n blended
