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.
100% Kona coffee, oxtail soup
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 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.
When you find yourself at TCM in search for a good cup of coffee, look no further than Bad Ass!
