Never thought a cafe would be described as futuristic or punk-ish, but that seems to encompass everything MANA is about. The quirky and outlandish layout of this lime green sanctuary will pull you in based on their appearance alone. Nonetheless, don't just come here to kick your legs in the air. Try their generous Japanese rice bowls, creamy pastas, and even Oreo burnt cheesecake.

11. Sushi Mastro Nikkei

Japanese-Peruvian cuisine is not something that rolls off the tongue easily. When it does, we go to one place: Nobu. Yet, Sushi Mastro Nikkei is turning the table for what we know this cuisine to be, and modifying it to a more casual experience than what you'd anticipate. Located at Fortune Centra, grab a bite of their Nikkei Salmon Mango and assortment of Nigiri sushi and sashimi. If you're looking for a dash of red meat, pick at the Argentinian Ribeye, or Baked-To-Order Chicken.

Unit 1-1 Fortune Centra, 2, Jalan Metro Perdana 6,
Taman Usahawan Kepong, 52100 Kepong, WPKL.
