Would be better if there is more truffle taste to it.

Side note: I never knew how difficult it was to locate a Halal-certified cafe till I had to find one.

Visited Penny University with a Muslim friend and woohoo it was a great experience!! I got the full English breakfast which consisted scrambled eggs (which were dry and kinda meh), turkey bacon, chicken sausage, baked beans, sautéed mushrooms, hash brown, mixed salad and 2 sliced of toasted bread. The portion was extremely generous. I struggles to finish the dish, though it was pretty good, esp. the sausage. I also really liked the iced latte they served, which completed the meal IMO. It was strong enough but smooth and not overwhelming 🤘

Taste: 7/10

Ambience: 7/10 (very cosy space that fits only around 20-30 pax? Nicely decorated with interesting pieces of “antiques” at every corner)

Wifi/phone reception: 3/10 (the cafe provides free wifi to patrons, but there’s barely signal - constantly hovering between nil to one bar in strength. Nothing much changes even when you toggle to your own 3g/4g data. I’m guessing reception’s just generally bad in the cafe. Perhaps a good reminder to all of us that we should focus on our loved ones and the meal before us instead of our phones 😂)

Ordered the chicken and waffle and breakfast platter. The chicken was fried to perfection and the maple syrup complemented the saltiness of the chicken. Waffles was fluffy too!

Big breakfast (~$16) was a platter of everything, but again nothing really stood out. Was a huge portion though 🥐 Salad dressing was suuuuper weird and SALTY???

Eggs Benedict (~$15) was honestly very average and nothing to shout about. Didn’t like how they fried/grilled(??) their ham bc it made it so much more oily :-( Eggs were flowy and nice but also were a little dry??? 🥪🍳
.
Muddy espresso with cold milk (~$5.50) leaned more on the bitter side, but it wasn’t overly bitter! It was quite smooth but nothing to shout about 😐

Ig @goodfomood

Wanted a simple breakfast so this was it. Wish the eggs were tastier.
