Here I present to you AnMour Cafe, JB, a homegrown modest American restaurant concept cafe. First thing that came to my mind when I first came across of this cafe was What is Anmour?! I tried googling but I couldnt really find the definition of its name, so perhaps they wanted it to be amour but somehow the registration people screwed up? LOL
AnMour Cafe is tucked at a rather quiet corner of Jalan Sutera Tanjung 8/3, at Sutera Utama. Its located at the area beside Sutera Mall that is populated by a whole bunch of cafe sprouting.
There are very few blog reviews on this Cafe, but somehow after some research done there was a good impression of it so decided to give it a shot. Celebrated my parent's birthday there on Chinese New Year's day itself since it was dad's birthday.
I was looking forward to trying their mini burgers but found out on the day itself that they only served CNY set meals on that day. Was rather disappointed, the workers there should at least inform us when we made our reservations there much earlier. Oh well, but it was all good.
So for a RM38++ set meal, we had a drink of our choice. Either ice lemon tea or orange juice. I have to admit that Im rather found of their self made ice lemon tea! Was just expecting the normal Nestle one but no! Its really tea and lemon, love how fragrant the tea was. After all, I'm eherm.. a tea person.
Orange was normal.
I read up on a blog, according to that blogger Anmour cafe serves delicious FREE appetizer. I was rather skeptical about free food being delicious, since nothing free can be good no? LOL Furthermore, the free appetizers were just buns to be dipped in their BBQ sauce.
Guess what! I was so wrong!! The buns were indeed shockingly delicious!
It tasted as if the buns were steamed, so soft and fluffy unlike the ones that you buy at the shop that comes in a pack of 6 where you usually tear them and stuff them down your pennyless-moment stomach. The best part was that it tasted more delicious when dipped in that BBQ sauce!!
Who knew such simplicity tasted so good?
Dad wanted more buns, but since I wasn't sure on whether we could actually buy another basket of them since it was only set meals available, we just tried our luck and asked. The boss (I assume) came by our table and asked how many buns do we want. We told him 5 and he generously said "Okay, I give you for FREE".
Wow! FREE for the second time!!
Then came our salad. My initial impression on that few leaves and a slice of tomato in half salad was speechless. I was just amused by how generous they can be on the buns but how not that generous can they be on their salad HAHAHHA.
But guess what! Another huge surprise! Their salad tasted so freaking good!! Salad sauce was definitely made with some berry. Most likely Raspberry. It was sour and sweet! Very appetizing!! Never had salad dressing as good as this before.
Another shocking thing (yes, I was shocked many times throughout this dining experience) is that though the salad portion was super small, it felt just enough after I polished it off! Suddenly, the bible story of 5 loaves and 2 fishes came to my mind LOL. Then I thought to myself, you judgmental ass. LMAO
Secret berry sauce.
Cream of mushroom with garlic bread came soon after. LOVE their soup!! I can taste the smooth cream that is well blended with the mushrooms. You can be rest assured that this cafe does not serve "canned soup" like Pizza Hut.
My main course: Chicken Cordon Bleu.
The chicken was okay, mediocre but their mash potato was fantastic! Buttery and milky.
Brown sauce was rather good though. I know you see mushrooms there but it didnt taste like mushroom sauce LOL
Fish and chips. It was just okay.
Mum's Carbonara Pasta. I can tell you it's one of the best that I've ever tasted!! There was this watery egg yolk on top of the creamy pasta, once broken and stirred together with the tasty carbonara sauce, GOSHHH did it taste good!
I'm usually not a big fan of pasta but I surely can finish up the whole plate of Carbonara Pasta that day if not for it being mum's share.
Everyone having a bite.
Dessert was vanilla ice- cream drizzled with choco sauce.

FREE mandarin oranges too!!
FYI, Anmour cafe is currently having a renovation so their cafe would be close till further notice. Nevertheless, it is worth the wait!!
