Pardon my absence as I was relatively sick (like a dog) for the past 4 days. I was feeling much better today tho I still have this very annoying itchy throat that coughs your life out if it tickles. Errr yeah. But I was scheduled to meet some of my girlfriends for brunch, well, gotta go anyways haha cause didn’t wanna miss out catching up with them.
So I found this place called BreadFruits in Desa Sri Hartamas. I usually find out about new places via instagram, as I’m a IG-addict if you may call so.
As the name suggest, you are going to find lots of fruits here. I like it that they use lots of fresh and healthy ingredients in their meals too!
Whether you are looking for a cup of juice to boost your immune system or improve metabolism, or a cup of warm soothing honey lemon drink, you are bound to leave this place with a higher dose of vitamin c than when you came in.
Their menu ranges from the regular weekend brunch, pasta, salad and sandwiches. Also on the counter are made to order fresh juice, danishes and strudels, coffee and another specialty, Malaysian Wild Honey.
Smoked Salmon Breakfast Platter, with avocado and capers, scrambled free range eggs, sourdough toast and arugula. (RM24.80+) Generous serving of smoked salmon, perfectly cooked scrambled eggs and such delicious combo of avocado, tomato and capers, drizzled with some freshly squeezed lemon. I could just eat the avocado all by itself. This platter comes with a small glass of juice of the day and a serving of coffee or tea.
The Tree Hugger (RM 21.80), a vegetarian option. Sourdough Toast, mushroom, tomato, avocado, mashed potato, homemade baked beans and arugula. This baked bean is not your ordinary canned Heinz baked beans. It’s made with cannellini beans and a simple tomato sauce with what seems like olives. This also comes with a juice of the day and a serving of coffee or tea.
This dish resembles a homemade carbonara. The Brunch Pasta with 7 min egg (RM16.80) comes in a loadful of bacon, mushroom, cherry tomaty and arugula. Well, the egg ??
Pour out and stir it!. The ooey gooey yolk makes a good sauce.
Another dish well recommended was the Roasted Banana Bacon French Toast with Passionfruit Wild Honey (RM18.80). The bread seems more just toasted than dipped and fried with egg. But I can accept that. The combination of banana, bacon, cinnamon sugar and passionfruit AND honey seems good enough.
How delicious does that look!! I love passionfruit, so I love it when people use more of it, in drinks, cakes, dessert or dishes like this!
We also had some pastries after chatting for 1 hour, and some freshly concocted juices and the special Wild Honey Lemon drink to soothe my uber itchy throat. The bill came up to about RM 110 ish for 4 person.
I don’t feel greasy or uneasy at all after the meal, infact I was just fine and seemed like we just ate something very healthy! HAHA. There may be fat in avocado or smoked salmon, but they are all good fats, that everyone needs. So if you’re in for a healthy brunch option around town, Breadfruits in Desa Sri Hartamas may be the best bet yet.
