Less buzzing and more lazing @ the Bees Publika
Some say best day of the week is Sunday. I say everyday can be the best day if we enjoy every bit of it. However, my recent Sunday has been amazing with endless good food. And you know what they say about the most important meal of the day.
I was in Publika’s Bee and I thought it is a better choice of Bee when it comes to the ambience and interior layout. Probably also because they have a more spacious outlet compared to the one in Jaya PJ. The seats are cozy and is pretty suitable for group hangouts with your friends or colleagues, as well as families.
There are also seats for the loners whom doesn’t like being disturbed rather just enjoying their meal and have some quiet time alone for themselves.
Apart from that, there is sunlight for those preferring to get closer to the Mother Nature with plants and pots of greens around them. The outdoor layout is as comfortable as the ones indoor so it really is a simple personal preference.
For those who appreciate art and vintage creativity should check out the displays and accessories they have around the place.
There is this particular thing that got my attention and I am seriously amazed and excited when I found out that it actually still works well. That little TV can still be switched on and with a bit of adjustment from the antenna, we get the local broadcast. I thought that was pretty cool.
But what was more amazing that day was the huge portion they serve for breakfast. Or brunch, since the menu goes on till before dinner time. They aren’t cheap but there is effort done on the menu which I thought deserves a bit of appraisal. First was The Bee Breakfast, which consist of a little of everything a breakfast can have in one plate. Served with freshly squeezed orange juice and a cup of coffee, the meal cost RM 28. The plate consist of 2 eggs done to your preference (poached, fried, scrambled), oven roasted tomatoes, rancheros beans, Italian turkey bacon, smoked chicken and thyme sausages, parmesan- and -sage potato harsh and toasted Rustica bread slices.
Then there is the Ham and Egg Grilled Cheese Sandwich for those liking sandwich and wraps. There is the turkey ham, egg, melted cheddar cheese on a Pain de Mie white bread for RM 14.50. All those were awesomely served with a bit of Arugula on the side.
And the egg lover would find irresistible with the eggs dishes because in Bee’s, it’s not just your regular eggs menu. The Smoked Salmon Scrambled was generously served with lots of Salmon in the scrambled egg. I remember everyone started complaining about the huge portion halfway to finishing the food. For RM 22, the dish had eggs scrambled with Norwegian smoked salmon and cream cheese, with parmesan-and-sage potato hash and bread of the day.
Also, the Portobello mushroom and Swiss gruyere cheese omelette made a fairly great breakfast. Soft omelette filled with portobello mushrooms and bread of the day going at RM 21. Although I think they could be a little more generous with the mushroom and a little bit more stingy with the cooking time for the omellete. Also, it might be a little bland to those gotten too comfortable with stronger palate.
Of course, also on the list today are the Eggs benedict. The breakfast classic with Hollandaise sauce, poached eggs and Italian turkey ham on choice of healthy baked scones or bread of the day sells at RM 19. The things you could do with eggs are just amazing. I thought these breakfast dishes with eggs should have never been costing sky high prices but I guess sometimes we pay for the ambience, services as well as the effort of the chef. And not forgetting valuable companions while dining. I think those great memories are always priceless.
