Before I start this review, there’s a couple of things I’d like to say.
Last Saturday, Nuffnang held its largest event to date – Nuffnang Food Fest.
The turnout was massive. Dozens of food vendors cooked up a storm, while a huge crowd of bloggers and keen onlookers gathered at Sunway Pyramid, diligently tweating to eat for free! Who says there’s no such thing as free lunch?
There were also heaps of activities lined up on that eventful day, one of them being Food Blogging 101. Needless to say, Spicy Sharon was one of the humble speakers for that segment.
I’d never once thought that I’d be credible enough to speak at an event, let alone talk about food blogging!
Here are a couple of candid snapshots before and during the event.
I could’ve possibly blabbed more than I should but thank you once again Nuffnang for having me. The opportunity was greatly appreciated.
So, where were we again? Oh right – Mon Boulangerie (now, that’s a mouthful!).
Mon Boulangerie & Kitchen
There’s nothing quite like the thought of having cappuccino and banana toast, especially ones with charred and crusty edges!
Mon Boulangerie is no newcomer in the growing clan of restaurants in Sri Petaling.
Few weekends back, after my hefty-but-not-too-satisfying meal at Jen Noodle Restaurant nearby, we decided to pop by Mon Boulangerie for dessert and coffee – in order to keep me awake that is.
I have been told – this eatery started-off as an authentically French restaurant but gradually evolved into a fusion-based restaurant that caters more to the mainstream taste buds over the years.
Today, it’s menu is filled with an assortment of Asian and Western cuisine that would make (or break) one’s appetite.
One look and you’d know that the crowd-puller is not bread and pastries.
I got there slightly pass lunch time and the place was still bustling with activity. The crowd kept on coming even when we left at a little pass 4pm – packed with loyal locals I suppose.
Runners rolled by, carrying heavy trays of food while chit chatter of patrons filled the room.
Since I only ordered desserts, I peered around, curious on the favourites being ordered here – mainly Western mains and pastas I noticed.
I sat under dimly-lit warm dangling lights while I waited for my coffee.
If not for the ghastly ghost tales that was being exchanged between me and my friend, I swear – with those lights and the comfortably mellow settings, my eyes would flap close and I would fall asleep. Really.
I was glad that my coffee came to the rescue just in time.
Espresso (Rm4.50). Cappuccino (Rm6.50).
Here, coffee prices are reasonable. My cup of Lavazza was good – smooth and served slightly warmer than usual but not too hot.
Banana French Toast. Rm6.90.
One look and I thought – I could probably make my own! (Not that simple actually)
The french toast were lightly doused in honey and syrup, sprinkled with cinnamon sugar dusting with slices of chopped banana then toasted to a nicely charred brown. Though a bit burnt at the edges, I ain’t complaining as it was still crusty, sweet and well – marvellous.
I figured the toast could’ve been a little thicker nonetheless. Still, what a great way to end yumcha!
Overall Rating: 6/10. If you are looking merely for a coffee and dessert place within the Sri Petaling vicinity, this might not be for you – but if you are up for a dose of Western coupled with desserts and coffee after, you could give this place a shot – there’s a reason everyone orders the same thing at Mon’s right?
