Places that seem to always turn up on your Instagram timelines. They look good, but is the food worth the hype? Thanks to me, you don’t have to potentially waste RM30 to find out that a neon sign is the only good thing about that café/restaurant. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The toppings were absolutely spot-on. I enjoyed the simplicity of the marinara, the mozzarella and the basil - but that’s where it ended. I don’t know if it was meant to be this way, but it felt like the middle of our pizza was undercooked - the dough tasted still raw? The crust was cooked perfectly though, so either it could’ve used a couple extra minutes in the fire OR I just know nothing about how pizza is meant to be done.

It takes a special kind of idiot to order a salad at a cafe, because A. they’re always overpriced, and B. the main ingredients that got you to order the salad in the first place are few and far between. This salad is guilty of both those points, but was still yummy nonetheless. And I am guilty of being said special idiot, as I knew this would happen and ordered the salad anyway.

This is probably one of the most satisfying big breakfasts I’ve had in a while - it’s big, and it’s unhealthy enough to make your brunch trip feel worth the calories. There are two slices of whole grain bread, a decently sized chicken sausage, grilled tomato, crispy kale, potato croquette, mushrooms and an egg done your way. I got extra mushrooms because I swapped out the bacon. All in all... worth it. Have it by yourself if you’re ravenous or share it.

The delightfully crisp and savoury sourdough toast was pretty much the star of this dish for me. The guacamole was seasoned well, and the poached eggs were suitably runny. The beetroot cider purée was a nice accompaniment to cut through the other flavours. Again, the food was a one hour wait (!!!) and for that price, I’d expect good service to come with the meal.

The pulled pork is the real highlight of this dish. It’s served atop a slice of sourdough, and topped with poached eggs, bbq cider vinaigrette, feta cheese and crispy shallots. While it’s a pretty yummy brunch dish, the taste was soured by the fact that I had to endure a 1-hour wait for the food! This is definitely a case where a trip to the hawker would’ve been more satisfying.

The portion is super generous, to say the least. The Bun Cha comes with rice vermicelli noodles, loads of fresh veggies, crispy spring rolls and a lot of grilled chicken. While the chicken is flavoursome, I found the sauce for the noodles a bit bland. Their sate sauce is really good though, so I had most of the noodles with that.
