Damansara Performing Arts Centre

One of my favorite up and coming places in Kuala Lumpur is the Damansara Performing Arts Centre (DPAC) Complex and Heritage Lane. There is an increasing number of cafes and bars emerging many of which are bespoke and the setting is one that will age well with its rustic outlook.

The cafes and spread out over 3 levels with charming markets in the lanes as you walk around.  Everything opens into the outdoor. I especially love the weaving, pictured below, across the openings.

Obviously check out the DPAC Web Site first to see what performances are on then get there early for a late lunch or dinner before the sow. Most shows will be a mixture of Chinese and English…Kerrie and I enjoyed a great quartet a few years ago at DPAC of which half was sung in English and half in Chinese…it was still a treat even thought we do not speak a word of Chinese.

As Em and myself had done Broga Hill that morning we decided to treat ourselves in the afternoon that we spent at DPAC. Haraju Cube was the perfect café to do this. Their specialty is Honey Toast which is dessert in a Toast Box…however Em went for the Frozen Pannacotta while I went for the Creamy Cheese Tart.
