3 Idiots café at Plaza Mont Kiara

 

3 idiots café at Plaza Mont Kiara is no joke when it comes to providing good meals to their patrons. Expect nothing too quirky or ridiculous despite their name. Instead, it is one of the best places to enjoy a good home cooked gourmet in a cosy and comfortable dining space within this vicinity. This hole is a wall is a great café that provides both the best dishes for the day (daily menu) as well as a good extension of both Asian delights as well as the Western influences at reasonable pricing.

When spotted Mee Siam (RM 8.90) on the menu, I literally took zero seconds to think and with no hesitations, I ordered it. The moment it’s being served, expect to dive into a lovely serving of sweet and tangy vermicelli that’s beautifully spiced up with hefty lemon grass, and perked up with some sambal as well as the vibrant looking sunny side up when it comes to the Asian delight.

At the same time, I am pretty excited to have some of those melted cheese. The French toast with cheese is the most gorgeous lovechild of melted cheese and sliced bread. It would have been even more fantastic if there is some sharp cheddar in it as well. But that would mean higher cost as well.

Not only does 3 idiots makes us feeling comfortable with most of their local home gourmet, they brilliantly cook up all day brunch with things like this Sauteed mushroom sunny side up ham toast. I solemnly swear that they are the best mushroom toast I’ve ever had in Plaza Mont Kiara.

Coffees are available, and is certainly the best to perk up the day but that’s about as good as it gets- as a caffeine fix. But this humble little café can only get as lovely as it is. This one is on my snapchat here.

Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) has finally landed in KL at TTDI’s Plaza Vads with full menu to offer and following their success in Singapore, this spot is not exactly the best kept secret. Potentially the next most talked about spot for brunch in the few months to come, expect this spacious eatery/café with modern furniture and friendly ambient to be exciting. The brew bar is exhilaratingly eye catching as we were greeted so promptly by the service crew while walking into the café-the kind that’ll put many other cafes in a lot of pressure and if the CMCR were to keep up to this, then the local café scene should really step up to the game.

 

12.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL
2.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

This café and roaster from Singapore is now fully operating with a good two page menu featuring some of the popular items from Singapore itself. It could have been a good place to stop on your KL coffee crawl but would recommend their brunches as well. Coffee with high acidity and the lovely fruity sweetness and aftertaste pairs really well with their cooking. Go for the black coffee, hot; pick your eggs cooked as poached rather than any other methods. It’s overwhelming how the poached eggs are beautifully done, I am very impressed indeed. Alongside with detailed culinary touches as well as gorgeous ingredients on their plates, the wobbly poached egg is not the only thing getting the thumbs up.

 

3.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Common Man Veggie Wonderland (RM 38) – Two free-range organic eggs in any style (trust me, go for poached), halloumi, spinach, confit herbed tomato, wild mushrooms, avocado, lemon and chilli, with artisanal honey –rye or multi-grain bread. This stunning combination looks ordinary but very well balanced despite the medley ingredients that are going on in a single dish. And, it is fairly filling to still leave a little space for something sweet later on.

 

4.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL
5.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Common Man Full Breakfast (RM 39) – Two free-ranged organic eggs in any style, streaky beef. Smoked chicken sausage, confit herbed tomato, vegetable rosti, minted sour cream, wild mushrooms, with honey rye or multi-grained bread. I love the vegetable rosti and minted sour cream.

 

6.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL
7.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Fluffy brioche French toast (RM 27) – Blocks of thick toasts stacking on delicious sweet tangy berries compote, and drizzled with maple syrup and a scoop of premium vanilla ice cream. They are not bragging when they called it the “fluffy” brioche.

 

8.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL
8.1 Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Common Man Burger (RM 43) – House made bone marrow beef patty, provolone, a gorgeous kick from the sweet onion aioli in it, crisp lettuce and the interesting house made pickle that is absolutely intriguing, on fluffy brioche bun served with fries. And speaking of fries, the side order of Fries (RM 16) comes with sweet potato fries in it.

 

9.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

Fries (RM 16) – A mix of hand cut potato and sweet potato fries with a light cheese sauce and spicy crab oil. This old fashion cut fries are crispy perfection, even after slathering them in that delicious cheese sauce. Leave all health concerns at the door here.

 

10.Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) @ TTDI KL

 

The food is on both the traditional and the innovative sides. There are some outstanding brunch and lunch dishes, and good coffee is always found here. While they are still very new, they have actually proven so popular to maintain full hipster credentials, they are not taking reservations on weekends. Ice Mocha (RM 15), Long Black (RM 9), Latte (RM 15) with fresh juices and artisan teas also available for non coffee drinker.

Mistral Restaurant @ Hotel Sofitel Macau at Ponte 16

 

An hour away from Hong Kong, Macau is one interesting hub for the extravagant experience of ultimate luxury and breathtaking views of historical sites. With their main draw for tourists being the casino and hotels, a relaxing stay on top of delicious breakfast is at the same time a fantastic retreat. Hotel Sofitel at Ponte 16 is conveniently situated right in the center of the city at the heart of their charming historical quarter and hosting the Mistral Restaurant; here is where international dining experience is specially crafted by the team. From lavish spread of buffet to ala carte meal and dinning space beautifully overlooking a fantastic view if dining al fresco at the poolside terrace, you’d be having a very good time enjoying the meal.

To experience a blend of flavours of international cuisine at the Mistral Restaurant, the buffet comprises of a choice selection of dishes cooked to perfection and comprises of an array of delectable blend of both Asian and European. Starting the day with clean selection of food, the yogurts are amazing- perfect texture and exactly the right source for probiotics.

The cheeses were paired and cold meat was delicious, it was a good way to enjoy your meal on top of that warm and cozy interior. Salad bar is extra charming when choices of dressing and olive oil had so much variety.

The fresh leaves and nice cheese pairing isn’t the only thing worthy of applauses. I was a little astonished with the authentic French patisserie – the sound of crispy layers of buttery aromatic croissant that crackles most delightfully when bitten into, is a wonderful music to the ear and a refining taste to the palate.

The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @Damansara Kim

 

Perfectly tucked within a neighbourhood-friendly shop row, The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery at Damansara Kim is that perfect place for a delicious and comforting meal. Minimally designed with simplicity, this neat tranquility is also a good place for photography. During the day, the room is filled with natural lighting and approaching evening, there is the simple pendant light to illuminate whilst adorning as an interior decoration.

 

1.The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @Damansara Kim
2.The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @Damansara Kim

 

Menu was simpler at the point of our visit but I believe the menu has expanded into something more impressive. What we had were delicious and occasionally there is daily menu, which is amazing as a treat for the neighborhood patrons that frequent the diner and I am absolutely returning again one of these days. There is a good fare for everyone, whether you are looking for an egg-heavy feast, mouthwatering meaty fry-up, or even a complete break from typical breakfast fare with pastries and coffee, one would be able to favourite a selection from your order.

Pulled Pork (RM 12.50) puts together a good compliment of main and side salad with delicious and juicy julienne of beetroots and carrots.

4.The Kitchen Table Restaurant & Bakery @Damansara Kim

 

There is no immaculate uniform whatsoever but the easy going charm appeals to the more relaxed type of neighoubourhood diner. Appetizers are fun but something with more depth of flavours means protein packed dishes ideal for weekend brunches. Things like the Roast Chicken Sandwich (RM 15.90) and Fry Up (RM 24) of streaky bacon, scrambled eggs, baked beans add grilled tomato. Their beetslaw is what I really love in their side and the sourdough is one of the very good ones I’ve had in this neighbourhood.

The quality ingredients of their small menu has some reasonable priced dishes- but don’t get too comfortable; the place opens with break and while service is helpful, food is to be paid upon ordering at the counter.

The Hub @ Taman OUG

 

The Hub @ Taman OUG first won loyal followers for its beautiful beans from all over as well as its expert brewing. On top of house blends, beans sourced from all over the world were perfectly brewed. More than just a café, the aroma of coffee at this creative caffeinated community is improbably a lovely spot to sip and enjoy both the rich flavour of coffee without without crema. Click HERE for their list of beans (menu).

 

1.The Hub @ Taman OUG
2.The Hub @ Taman OUG

 

This is the perfect place if you’re looking for coffee or even cakes, but if seeking posh Sunday brunch or selection of healthy breakfast, the Hub could be a letdown. Their newly launched single page, all day breakfast covers the usual eggs. The Hub Benedict (RM 20) serves poached eggs served with sautéed spinach, smoked chicken ham, hollandaise sauce, waffles and salad of the day tossed with balsamic dressing. Despite peculiarly including pieces of heart shaped waffle, this could still win a couple of applauses. Alas, I can never be one of them.

 

5.The Hub @ Taman OUG

4.The Hub @ Taman OUG

 

Scramble Me (RM 18) puts their cheese and black pepper sausage on the limelight in this plate simply because they are the only thing outstandingly pleasant to the palate. Baked beans served warm alongside waffles and the salad of the day. Otherwise, a safer choice would be My Omelette (RM 16).You’d have omelette with onions, capsicum, sautéed mushroom, chicken ham chips, served with pancake & salad of the day tossed with balsamic dressing.

 

6.hub

 

Focused mainly on coffee beans, the amount of selection and choices are tremendously exciting and would easily intimidate those with trouble selecting their coffee. With a somewhat tranquil ambiance, The Hub is a perfect for anyone with devotion to artisan coffee.

Coffee is more elaborate than food but it caters well to regulars and those seeking a filling meal to accompany the coffee. Let’s hope that the food menu would improve. Click HERE for more photos.

Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Grand Shanghai Banquet at Seri Petaling here is a perennial favourite with yum cha fans. Especially when it is decorated to resemble classic canto mansion, with huge ancient Chinese wooden door to greet and welcome diners.

 

1.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

2.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

Featuring some of the more interesting dim sum on offer, like la mian, congee and things like Claypot fish head. I am a sucker for anything soupy, but the version here gets better, rich and flavourful with plenty of mushrooms and vegetables.

 

3.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Fish served separately and cooked on portable stove with stock cooked into velvet rich and delicious starter. There’s good variety in general, with quite a few decent staple options like porridge and noodles or rice.

 

4.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

5.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

6.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Their dumplings in general are soft, cloud-like and well made. Chef Special Dumpling (RM 9.80) and Xiao Long Bao with yellow wine (RM 9) are both chef recommended. We were expecting and looking forward to splitting at their soft white seams and spilling their sweet juicy insides, but that didn’t quite happen.

 

7.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

8.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Steamed Pork Rib with Dumpling (RM 8.50) turns out to be regular steam pork rib we are all familiar with (not sure which part of it resembles dumpling) and this one have no tauchu (fermented beans) to be seen.

 

9.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

Innovation and creativity in their dimsum is charming.Crispy Prawn Mango Wrapped in fried Vermicelli with Wasabi Dressing (RM 13.80) and Crispy Corn Flake Crusted Tuna Rolls (RM 10.80) can only meant that you’ll have to try it to find out more about this complex mix of flavours and textures.

 

10.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

11.Grand Shanghai Banquet @ Seri Petaling

 

While the floor is a wonderland of steaming dimsum baskets, the kitchen interestingly fire up Chinese dishes as well. While we are there, we tasted the Grand Shanghai Special Spicy Chicken (RM 16). Something that resembles hainanese steam chicken but with extra kick of a tinge of spiciness that is irresistibly addictive.

 

12. Grand Shanghai Banquet

 

Plenty of other favourites like fried cheong fun (rice noodle rolls) and extreme assortment dumplings make their way around, as do fragrant fried bites and baked tarts. The thing is, though, all the action is happening within the kitchen operating hours (kitchen rests from 3-5 before they run the dinner services).

Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar

 

The almost total lack of gimmicks at the Fancy Breakfast Club in Bangsar lets the staff concentrate on giving diners exactly what is proposed – a fancy breakfast, all day long.

 

1.Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar

 

The cool decor is defiantly minimal but the friendly staff won’t ever allow it to boring, they are filled with enthusiasm to recommend and to help you decide. Through the window frames, you’d find natural light filling the intimate room with wooden table each placed with beautiful candles; I’d imagine the sight to be breathtaking when all is lit up approaching night fall.

 

2.Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar
3.Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar
4.Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar

 

Simple pendant bulbs and plain wooden tabletops placed neatly and instill a confidence in the meal to come. While the menu isn’t extensive, the few dishes they do have tick all the right boxes. This breakfast platter is strictly sharing because it is made with a minimum of 5 items priced at RM 3 each. Choose from eggs of any style (our pick – poached), sautéed mushroom, Sautéed cherry tomatoes, mashed avocado, baked beans, Turkey ham, beef bacon, hash brown, fresh cut fruits, grilled vegetables, yogurt and smoked salmon.

Both hot and iced beverages are reasonably priced and mostly caffeine based. The big question is why is there no juices or smoothies? And how about some shakes?

Fancy Breakfast Club @ Bangsar - Menu

Fancy Breakfast Club’s one page menu

 

The Fancy Breakfast Club here could be a blueprint for how to run a modern restaurant but is not a coffee destination for sure. Put aside the earlier viral social media crisis ( Read about it on says.com here ). While it could be tricky trying to get to this place, or as a matter of fact, as well as securing a legal parking bay, it is totally worth a visit if you are totally the breakfast kind of person. Or, a food instagram enthusiast.
