The Curious Goat Coffee Brewers – Damansara Perdana’s very own!

20-1, Jalan PJU 8/3A, Damansara Perdana, 47820, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia



We just got back from a week-long trip to Taiwan (posts on that coming up soon) and saw that this brand-new shop had opened up a stone’s throw – well, maybe two throws – from our guard house.

It’s so new they still have congratulatory flower arrangements near the door and no shop sign up yet. We had to go inside to look at the menu to see that it’s called The Curious Goat.

Although the artwork they had seems to say ‘Angry Goat’ instead.

The place is simply but beautifully done up with an industrial look – lots of wood, wooden pallets, steel pipes and exposed lightbulbs. Cozy lighting and new air-conditioning that’s nice and cold makes this a good place to hang out.

Guess a lot of people agree because the place was pretty full when we were there.

On to the coffee. We ordered an iced mocha that tasted good and rich without being overly sweet. Since I don’t know much about coffee to speak on it with any authority, we snapped a picture of the blurb on their menu.



Yeah, what he said…









They have a small food menu too, a few dessert items as well as 3 pasta dishes: meatball, chicken or a mix of both.

My beef meatball pasta was nicely cooked in a flavourful, chunky tomato sauce and scattered with fresh herbs. Some may find the sauce a tiny bit acidic but I liked it just fine. They were generous with the meatballs – I got 4 good-sized ones which were all tender, juicy and tasty.

If the meatballs were flattened and grilled on a flat-top, I get the feeling they would make great patties for mini burgers.

Lady Fartsalot’s chicken pasta was slightly less successful. The pasta was a bit overcooked and the chicken quite dry with an almost imperceptible taste of herbs.

Tasted like the exact same sauce for both pastas.

The food took quite a bit longer than expected to arrive (they’re probably still getting used to the kitchen) but the quality is pretty decent overall. The portion size was also not too big – big eaters will have ample room for dessert.

We decided to forego dessert this time around, but are definitely going back to try them soon, along with whatever new food items that they’ll hopefully introduce.

Yep, we’re gonna stamp the hell out of this here loyalty card.

To my knowledge, The Curious Goat is the first truly cool coffee place to open in Damansara Perdana. We’re going to do our best to give it as much support as possible because I’m optimistic that – once it works out any minor teething issues it may have –it’ll be every bit as good as any of the ones in TTDI.

Bite-sized review
A cool coffee place in Damansara Perdana with a small but decent food menu which I hope will grow in the near future. Nice and cozy with friendly service. A good place to hang out.
