Now if you guys remember Harry Potter movies, one interesting scene would be the Platform 93/4, where Hogwart kids run into a brick wall to get to the other side. Of course, it is impossible in the real world but at one point I thought maybe I should be doing that!

I’ve come across many restaurants and their doorway to dine in is super simple and obvious. This particular restaurant, however, got me thinking if I’m at the right spot or just met a dead end. Talk about appearance is deceiving and it is definitely true!

Jibril is a hidden cafe located in SS15 Subang. There’s a reason people call it hidden and because it’s a secret hidden cafe, figuring out where Jibril’s secret door can be a little confusing. The hint is it’s along the brick wall!

With a decor that resembles that of a speakeasy bar from that era, you can know right away that you’re going to have a fantastic time here. Usually, a speakeasy is a retro-style bar that serves alcohol. But not Jibril. Though it may seem like a bar concept, Jibril is 100% halal and is thus, Muslim-friendly.

Jibril serves all kinds of local artisan foods and beverages. One crowd-puller dish is their salted egg butter chicken. Jibril’s signature dish, combining the luscious savouriness of salted egg chicken thigh meat with the creamy sweetness of butter chicken, has become legendary and a favourite among its customers. For seafood lovers, you can enjoy mouthwatering salted egg butter with squid and prawns.

For breakfast, rather than the old-fashioned nasi lemak, you can try their nasi lemak butter chicken. If you’re used to classics like beef rendang, fried chicken, and sambal paru, the butter chicken will introduce you to a new way to experience Malaysia’s champion breakfast.

Apart from their signature dish, the red butter chicken, coconut butter chicken, and butter chicken chop pasta are among standouts on the menu. You can also order something nice from their Western menu to get into the Gatsby mood. Some of the must-try dishes include New Zealand beef ribs, pan-fried chicken, fish and chips, and carbonara chicken ham.

Having a bar concept and not speaking of their beverages would be a crime. Jibril has a mocktail bar where you can order delicious non-alcoholic mocktails. Served after JK Rowling’s works, Potter is a non-alcoholic butterbeer inspired by Harry Potter and a popular choice among regulars. Foamy root beer with a pronounced butterscotch flavour is the best way to describe this beautiful drink. It’s served with an ice sphere around which the foam builds. Trust me, it is a must to try this imaginary drink that has been brought to life. It kind of tastes like the A&W root beer float but with a more buttery taste.

But wait, there’s more. Because the co-founders are also mixologists, they produced other celebrity-inspired drinks like Bond (non-alcoholic red wine and grapes), Monroe (non-alcoholic white wine and berries), and Gandhi (non-alcoholic white wine and berries) (teh tarik, lychee and gula Melaka). All free from alcohol so you can have it as much as you like.

Jibril should surely be your next hangout location if you’re touring Subang Jaya’s neighbourhoods. Check out Jibril and its amazing food at SS15 today but be careful not to run the brick wall!
