Nestled among many convenience stores, nurseries and clinics in Seksyen 13, and situated close to the Shah Alam Stadium, is Holy Smoke Cafe, which sticks out like a sore thumb. Holy Smoke Cafe serves western and local favourites, which include the usual suspects (i.e. burgers, fried rice) and a few signature items thrown into the mix.
Among the more familiar items on the menu include Grilled Chicken Chop, Fish and Chips, New Zealand Lamb Chops, and Salmon Penne Carbonara, to name a few. They have also taken some of these familiar items and classics and given them a fresh coat of paint. This is seen in items like the Holy Smoke Burger, which has a bolognaise and onion sauce added to the burger, accompanied with a serving of garlic and butter mayo. On top of that, there's also the Holy Smoke Fried Rice, which is served in a nasi kerabu style with toppings like tempeh, long beans, carrots, cabbage and much more served on the side. Another signature item at Holy Smoke Cafe is the Castro Lasagna, a richer rendition of the Italian classic.
Staying true to the Western flair, Holy Smoke Cafe also offers a number of desserts and drinks to accompany the meal. The Vanilla Milkshake with Rainbow Rice, Blueberry Cheesecake and Red Velvet Cake are evidence of this. It is also important to note that Holy Smoke Cafe will have promotions and offers available for different occasions, i.e. Valentine's Day.
Ultimately, Holy Smoke Cafe does a very good job of serving Western and local classics in a manner that is both familiar and unique. If you're ever in the Shah Alam area, you would not want to miss out on giving Holy Smoke Cafe a try.
