Antipodean Cafe, Mid Valley Megamall

Saturday, August 08, 2015

Many people have been raving about how great the food is at Antipodean Cafe at Bangsar that it made me very eager to give it a try. WL was lucky enough to dine there for breakfast, citing that the owner was rather arrogant by disallowing customers to sit & wait at their tables if their family or friends arrived later. Thankfully, the food was pretty good.

When they opened their new branch at Mid Valley Megamall, I was curious to whether it would live up to the expectation. WL & I managed to get a seat before the lunch crowd swarmed in. One thing for sure, dining at this branch may be a less pleasant experience because it is an al fresco style in typical, hot Malaysian weather. Space is rather limited too which means you will need to wait quite some time especially during peak hours.

I ordered my usual favourite brunch - eggs benedict with bacon. When it arrived, I was impressed. Just look at the large, gorgeous poached eggs topped with hollandaise sauce. Loved it that they served it with wholemeal bread.

WL always fancies Big Breakfast & picked bacon to complement the set. Besides bacon, other meat choices are available as well - chicken, beef & pork sausage. The set comes complete with silky smooth scrambled eggs, toast, hashbrown & mushrooms. I nibbled a few pieces of mushrooms & it tasted fantastic.

Breakfast ain't complete without a cup of good coffee. My mocha was served in a small glass with a mismatched saucer. Although I personally preferred mocha to be served in a ceramic cup, I couldn't resist the coffee art beautifully done by the barista. Coffee was aromatic with the right balance of milk, bittersweet cocoa powder & syrup.

Antipodean Cafe no doubt live up to my expectation of a well rated premise. This might not be the HQ but it stood out well on its own. Staffs were friendly & welcoming, and it's more than enough to pacify my inner frustration with the fact that the location is not ideal. Since their new outlet will be opening soon at Atria Shopping Gallery, I have an alternative location to hopefully indulge in the same quality in a more comfortable environment. Rating 4.5 out of 5.
