Breakfast And Brunch!

Breakfast And Brunch!

My favourite time of the day is brunch! Since the hype of cafes bloomed, I fell in love with all day breakfasts, eggs benefits and foods alike. Plus coffee of either long black, capp, or mocha. 😘

Grilled chicken and avocado sandwich with salsa. Eggs Falmenco.
Another happy croissant customer due to its flakey-ness and buttery flavour. But I didn't know it was a croissant sandwich (didn't read the menu properly) but I would've switched it to whole grain or sourdough for a healthier meal. Avocados and some juicy tender chicken is always a win though. Love how generous they are with the avocados! I think there was about half a 'cado in there. Explains the price!
Eggs flamenco is another style of baked eggs. Cheese-less, and with gorbanzo beans/chickpeas. Really nice savoury dish to dip your whole grain soldiers in the delicious flowy yolk-porn.
Food: 8/10 Price: 6/10 (RM 18 for sandwich; RM 21!!! For eggs. Mannn my whole bill came up to RM 54 for these few items including a croissant and long black. Thank god there's free table water to save some cash)
PS. Will definitely come back for croissants during tea! Very limited seating inside. Very humid and hot on bad days outside. They should invest in fans! #FWP?

Or maybe it's time for brunch since it's already noon.
Head over to real food for REAL FOOD 😜. Get over Monday blues with this refreshing muesli, of soy yogurt, bananas, apples, berries, and oats all mixed together to form a comforting blend.
If you're the type that doesn't mind the little seed textures of raspberries and blackberries, you will definitely love this!
But bummer! I was supposed to get an "organic" cookie on the side but I didn't. Got diced apples and bananas instead 😢

Food: 6/10 Price: 5/10 (RM 18)

So many more choices and a few improvements on their menu.
One of their new item is the Big Boss. It is simply an open faced sandwich, with turkey ham, bacon(?) and eggs served on top of charcoal buns with a spread of cream cheese. I didn't like the cream cheese (or butter, I'm not really sure) because they tasted weird and a little too much. Great #eggyolkporn though!
On the sides are sweet potato fries and potato salad, as well as some tomato dipping sauce.
The hams were rather salty and I didn't really like it. Love the sweet potato fries as usual. And I'm not sure if it's just me, but having charcoal bread gives me some stomach discomfort - or was it just this whole dish's combo.
Food: 6/10 Price: 6/10 (RM 23.90 - to be reconfirmed)

In case you're wondering while looking at the menu, this is Huckleberry's big breakfast platter. Not the best nor the tastiest. I had my eggs poached and THANK GOD it was not served on top of the toast. Otherwise the bread will turn soggy. They were also poached perfectly.
There's nothing much on the platter. Kind of felt cheated. Just one or two miserable thin slices of bacon (beef or turkey I'm not sure), chicken sausage, two eggs any style of your choice, sautéed potatoes, homemade baked beans, and really juicy slightly grilled tomatoes. Lastly, two slices of sourdough toast.
So there was a lot of beans and potatoes so that made up the majority of the plate. Brand were very hard. Not really boiled down to a texture I like. Seasonings were a little under too. The beans could've been better.

Best was the tomatoes. I really loved how sweet and juicy it was. The eggs with toast and chicken sausage.
However, sourdough crust was incredibly hard. Like rock hard. Quite a challenge to my knife and fork to cut through and some jaw exercises.
Food: 6/10 Price: 5/10 (RM 28.90 - not a choice I would recommend. Unless they improve on it and have more satisfying portions of meat)

Arrived early at Huckleberry just for their breakfast menu. A very impromptu visit on a Friday but croissant cravings brought me here. Decided to give huckleberry another chance but this time with their breakfast menu.

I had their homemade granola parfait served with assorted fresh fruits like apples, bananas, watermelon,assorted nuts and seed, and some raw organic honey. They use fresh fruits that are in season and convenient. The mason jar makes everything look beautiful!
Definitely a delicious and healthy breakfast to start your day. I was basically full from all the fruits and delicious yogurt (farmers union). Their granola is baked with cold pressed coconut oil. Never really tried anything with coconut oil but I really love the granola! There was indeed quite little granola and an abundance of fruits mixed with yogurt.

Food: 8/10 Price: 7/10 (RM 17.90 - price is alright for this delicious mix and quality)

PS. Never leaving without having their delicious almond croissant!! I had two and took away one.

But the previous two was not as expected not to my liking. It's quite hard to impress a fussy sweet breakfast lover like me. Or maybe pancakes just don't turn me on as much as waffles. 😏 Simple is the key. If you really want to know how good is something, gotta try the basics. The minimalist is just of pancakes, maple syrup, butter, and a dust of icing sugar. Can't believe this was the best among the three I had. Fluffy, delicious, not too sweet. Just perfect. Pancake cravings? Go for this! Reminds me of the one I had at Grumpy Cyclist.
I guess the toppings on the other two I tried was just overwhelming and could be better if the flavour party is toned down.
On a side note, my friend who ordered this wanted an ice cream to go with the pancakes. Didn't know it would cost a bomb because the restaurant actually gave us the additional ice cream on the "dessert" menu for RM 10, the one with cornflakes, nuts and what not.
Kind suggestion @yellowbrickroadcafe: it would be great to give your customers an add on option to their pancakes with a cheaper price like "add on ice cream (Vanilla/Choc/etc) for RM 5++" or something.
Food: 7/10 Price: 7/10 (RM 14 - cheapest pancake on the pancake menu +RM 10 vanilla ice cream single scoop)

Look at the cheese!
The RBB company has done it again with their delicious baked eggs. Triple C is their fancy name of minced beef and beef bratwurst "Chili Corn Carne", beneath the eggy, cheesy goodness.
Served with two slices of sundried tomato focaccia bread; really delicious ones in fact. They were crusty and toasted on the outside, fluffy and delicious on the inside. Great for dipping with the chili baked eggs.
Not as meaty or overwhelming as the signature baked eggs at RBB, but a very nice and warming comfort food, especially for beef lovers. The heat was subtle and the whole chili with baked eggs over melted cheese was just right. I definitely enjoyed it.
I did share it among three people, me included as we were in fact, at YBR for their newly launched affiliation, the Wicked Pancake Parlour.
Food: 8/10 Price: 6/10 (RM 24 - be prepared for hefty price tags at YBR with the known "second most expensive" big breakfast in town, runner up to VCR)

This was one of my favorite that day because it's really a nice comfort food! Mash potatoes, delicious sautéed onion brown sauce, peas and their chewy chicken sausage.
Something easy for a light lunch or brunch. Peas were cooked to perfection. They call the peas petit pois, which I googled is called peas as well. Fancy smancy.
Although the sausage wasn't as crunchy, the whole dish compliments one another. Delicious at every bite.
Food: 8/10 Price: 6/10 (RM 25.90 (I think) - Not sure if Huckleberry's cost is very high, but I would appreciates other sausages for bigger portion instead of just ONE cut into half.)

As the menu proudly describes, thick sliced brioche soaked in vanilla custard creams scented with nutmeg and cinnamon, cooked in butter. Topped with bananas, toasted walnuts, choice of huge made apple syrup or raw honey.
I was not asked whether I'd like apple syrup or raw honey but I think I was given honey. As amazing as French toasts can get, it's always a sweet tooth pleaser.
One of the better French toast that I've tasted. Never overly sweet, loved the hint of vanilla I tasted. Luckily the cinnamon taste or nutmeg wasn't overpowering. Duh, because it's "scented". By I have trust issues with cinnamon on French toast. People get too generous with that amazing spice.
Food: 8/10 Price: 7/10 (RM 24.90 - why must pan fried butter bread soaked in egg and covered in sugar be so expensive? Sigh.)

I was taken aback at first when I found out the price of this breakfast. I still decided to give this a try because of the sweet potatoes in the center! Yup! That mainly attracted me.
When I got here and ordered the bash, I was surprised by the huge portion. I got a legit BIG breakfast. Served in a 16-inch frying pan. Lol

We get baked beans, hash browns, sweet potatoes, garden tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, a slice of sourdough a choice of two eggs any style, chicken/beef sausage, and turkey/beef bacon. All given in generous portions. It's even enough to serve two. Although I would prefer another slice of bread, I changed my mind when I was halfway through sharing because I was almost full already.
Everything was delicious and the main plus point was the extra sweet potatoes. Only AMPM and YBR has sweet potatoes in their big breakfast that I've tried so far. The mushrooms were a little weird and too heavily herbed though. I didn't like them.
Food: 7/10 Price: 6/10 (RM 30 - I'll give credits to the portion but honestly it's nothing to shout about. Yes it is delicious, creative, and satisfying but it's hard to have it often as it would burn a hole in your wallet - I'm speaking from an average income earner perspective. You can easily make these at home with quality ingredients 😊)

😂 Brioche French toast topped with poached pears, strawberries and nuts. All served on top of a satisfactory amount of coconut mascarpone cheese and a side of coconut caramel sauce in an espresso cup.
The portion for this was just right. Although the combination sounded weird at first, it was a great test out of my comfort zone. Believe it or not, this is my first time trying poached pears and they're delicious!! I'll assume it's perfectly poached because the natural sweetness fills your tongue on every bite. Paired with the nicely cooked egg-covered-bread (thank you for having enough eggs coverage for a French Toast YBR) it brings the poached pears to another level. Have everything together (the fruits, bread, sauce, cheese) and it hits every right spot because of amazing flavour combination.
Natural sweetness, a traditional western sweet breakfast with an Asian twist done right, very right.
Nice presentation with the little espresso cup too!
Food: 8/10 Price: 7/10 (RM 22 - I appreciate the great flavour and presentation. But this price is considered expensive on average standards for just French toasts.)

YUMMERS. Always love breakfast sets. 😊 Food: 7/10 Price: 7/10 [P.S. they're always full. I had to wait a while before I got my seat. It was still worth the wait!!]
