Another new café, breakfast and brunch hotspot to hit the heart of Uptown – where I rediscover my joy for big breakfast! I was very delighted when I first heard about this.
The menu is creatively printed on a brown recycled paper – pages of descriptive reading was pure confusion for the indecisive hungry-girl. Quick decision making time!
There wasn’t a huge lot to choose from to begin with, but there were a couple of really interesting All-day-breakfast offerings.
Despite non-stop gazing at the dishes coming out of the kitchen, hoping that one if it was mine, it took awhile before my breakfast came and so did the coffee. That said – the servers were really friendly yet apologetic and brought us glasses of water then rushed back to check on our orders almost immediately.
A teeny bit of superfluous service like that, made it okay for a longer wait and does wonders to the overall dining experience. Cappuccino & Latte (Rm8-Rm10). Nothwithstanding – I decided to go with the more interesting section of their All-day-breakfast this time round, leaving the slightly more conventional breakfast treats for another time. Mexican. Rm23.90.
What prompted me to order this in the first place was the descriptive wordings of ‘roti canai’ burrito, chunky chicken, scrambled eggs and guacamole (avocado). What arrived was a stale and dry-looking wrap. One bite and I thought – this dish is in desperate need of a distinctive sauce, which I was forced to improvised using chilli sauce instead. It really-really needs more sauce. The chicken meat though, was done just right and so was the scrambled eggs, but both did not do any justice to the burrito at all, instead, added dryness to the overall texture. I could barely taste the guacamole also. I really love the idea but the version needs tweaking.
Parisiene on the other hand, was a wonderful breakfast choice, which could also make it as a potential favourite at TGB. Layers of sweet and fluffy French toast, stuffed with turkey ham, grayue, melted ‘gooey’ parmesan and homemade béchamel sauce. I ate this exquisitely, drenched in nicely poached egg yolks, bit by bit. It all worked out really well – an absolute lunch stealer if you may. Overall Rating: 7/10. Like all new-restaurant-syndrome, I’m sure the menu will still undergo enhancements and tweaking in the next few months or so. Being so near home, I will be returning to try out the Mestilah Malaysian and Mediterranean breakfast sets, thus, back with a review real soon. As for now, what’s good in The Good Batch?
