Peekaboo Cafe comprises of a distinct cafe theme based on a Japanese anime titled “My Neighbour Totoro”. The character ‘Totoro’ (a spirit animal with rabbit-like ears) highlights the essence of this café. The café started its roots in Esplanad Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur on October (2015) and has been a popular trend for the locals especially fans of this particular anime.
The interior is designed simply with concrete flooring's, wooden furnishing and an artificial concrete surface of the wall. The cafe's logo outlines the adorable Totoro cartoon which signifies the cafe's theme. The dining area is completed with a large clear window. It is also known as to be the most photogenic space in the whole of Peekaboo cafe. There are ample of natural light shining into the café as well as colorful shaped pieces hung on the wall. Not forgetting ‘Totoro’ plush toys that are placed at almost every part of the cafe from the sofa, the mini living room corner to the table top counters.
Peekaboo serves a variety of breakfast styled, brunch meals and desserts. Among the main dishes that we were given to try here is the "Seafood Marinara Pasta". This is a classic, easy seafood pasta made using a seafood marinara mix: prawns, calamari, fish and mussels tossed through a simple, very tasty tomato sauce.
We also had the "BBQ Chicken Chop with Aglio Olio." This size of the chicken chop is as big as the palm of your hand, not even joking. The chicken is so juicy and well-seasoned and the melted cheese on top of the chicken makes the whole dish stand out. You will toto-lly love this dish!
The "Matcha Latte" here is also one of the best signature drinks. The thickness and creaminess of the coffee is simply perfect. If you love matcha/ green tea, this is a must have when you're at Peekaboo!
The ‘Totoro’ character springs life to the cafe bringing spirited feel whenever you step in. If you’re looking for a chill out session with a group of friends or just in need of a quiet relaxing bite, Peekaboo will do you justice. Relive your childhood memories and snap a couple of photos with the array of Totoro plush toys and figurines available.
