Review: Haus 7 Puchong – Hidden Cafe in Kampung Batu 14 Puchong

A kampung seems like an unlikely place to find an Instagrammable cafe – but venture into Batu 14 Puchong and you’ll come across Haus 7, a hidden gem that occupies what looks like a refurbished single-storey kampung house, complete with its own garden and backyard.

The space is small but cosy, with an open-air concept: think open spaces and plenty of natural sunlight, paired with minimalist wooden furniture.

The outdoor terrace is surrounded by lush greenery, so diners can feel closer to nature.

The menu is typical cafe fare. Set lunches are available, as are all-day sandwiches and salads as well as rice and pasta dishes. For a cool thirst quencher in the sweltering weather, opt for a cold and refreshing mocktail (RM12)of Mint Calamansi (mint leaves, calamansi, lemongrass, asam boi & ice cream soda) or Yuzu Spicy (yuzu puree, lemon juice, shichimi togarashi spice, sugar syrup, sparkling soda). Alternatively, order an ice blended caramel coffee (above – RM11), or choose from flavours such as mint chocolate, strawberry and vanilla hazelnut.

The kitchen is small and has a limited capacity, so be prepared for a wait.

Moo’s order of 1/4 Percik Chicken, served with jasmine rice and a side of salad (RM18.80 – set lunch with drink) was the quickest to the table, as it was pre-cooked. The serving portions were generous, and the chicken was well cooked and tender. I liked the percik sauce as it was not too spicy and had a strong flavour of lemongrass, albeit a little too sweet.

The Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM16.80 – set) was sizable and came with fried potato wedges and coleslaw, drenched in a sweet and sour sauce of tomatoes and peas. The chicken was cooked to golden brown perfection; crispy on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside – and the sauce tied everything together well.

“Uncle Paul”‘s Fish and Chips (RM16.80) features crispy soda battered fish fillets with fries, sauteed peas and tartare sauce. The fish fillets were crisp and nicely seasoned, and the batter was not too thick. The fries were average though, as were the peas which were a little under-cooked.

Service is warm and friendly, albeit a little slow. If you’re not in a hurry and just want to enjoy your time with friends / fam over a cuppa, then this is the perfect spot! The space is open for micro events and workshops as well.
