La/Pa @ Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar
Rise & Shine!
Hooray, it’s weekend again! Time to get a good rest and have a great breakfast/ brunch (except I only get to have my rest after work on the Saturdays).
Speaking of breakfast/ brunch, where is your favourite place?
I must say, this is my new favourite.
One fine Sunday, we walked in with our lapar stomachs, secured our seats and started the meal of the day.
Your neighbourhood supply; this is how they name themselves.
A relatively new café that stood along at Jalan Telawi 3, bringing a cheerful sight to the forever busy Telawi Bangsar. The cemented wall is plastered with woods and tiles; the interior is furnished with natural wooden veneer dining tables and shinny white chairs. There were some young green plants slipped in between the tables, which created a bright and inviting ambience for dining and instagram-ing.
They serve not just good breakfast plate but also appealing sandwiches, pasta and also classy mains such as duck confit and lamb racks. Manned by the energetic team behind the TTDI’s Quar/Tet (hmm, have yet to pay my visit), this will be another outlets crowded with patrons. So, do make reservation if you are coming here in a big group.
Flat White (Rm 10.5)
Pancakes & Orange Quinoa Compote (Rm 19.9) came first.
Soft fluffy buttermilk pancakes, drizzled with the fragrant housemade spiced orange and quinoa compote and Indonesian long pepper, finally dashed in a dollop of vanilla bean whipped cream. Love its sweet tangy combination with the fluffy pancake, and the aftertaste of the spiced quinoa compote and the vanilla flavoured whipped cream was at a right fragrant balance, lingering long in the oral cavity.
How can we miss out eggs at brunch?!
Duck Eggs in Purgatory (Rm 21)
Baked fresh duck eggs layered with Australian spinach in creamy garlic sauce, sprinkled with paprika and served with housemade baguette. This combination has a different scene from the usual baked eggs with tomato potato and cheese. Mmm, it was so heavenly digging in the gooey aromatic duck egg with the help of baguette. Let alone the slice of baguette soaked in as much as creamy and rich egg-y before chucking them into the mouth. Duck egg lovers will definitely fancy this.
French toast here was pretty amazing too!
Provencal French Toast (Rm 19.9)
They ditch the usual sweet version of French toast and came out with this savoury toast. Housemade dark rye thick loaf dressed with Herbs de Provence, garnished with kale and basil pesto and feta cheese. It was really fragrant and I couldn’t help sniffing on the tempting scent of the French toast. Too fragrant too aromatic too yummy. It may be on a saltier side, but this went great with the Duck Eggs in Purgatory.
And so, it was just me and my bff over the table. We went a little greedy to order 3 portions and they were just right for the 2 of us. Do note that these are only available for breakfast and they will stop serving these few dishes after noon.
