I am pretty sure some of you are experiencing food like me. Suddenly why this dish taste so good. Cause we have been eating healthy during MCO. (not sure bout the rest of you, but I am definitely one of them)

Now this RMCO period for Malaysians, I believe many of you have already start your cafe hopping and dining outside. I am definitely one of them.

Lets start off with fried chicken. This is Sriracha Fried Chicken @ RM 20 : Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Sriracha Aioli

Upperhouse Kitchen & Dessert Bar (4)

This platter is actually rather interesting. With the “tepi longkang leaves” being decorated on the top do give it an aesthetic look it needed.

Bao Basket (Fried) serve in 5pcs Assorted @ RM 35 : Buttermilk Chicken, Prawn Katsu & Fish Tempura

Kimchi Cheese Croissant @ RM 26: Kimchi omelette, chicken sausage, mozzarella, mushroom ragout, feta, crispy shallots, coriander

Among all the dishes, I find this dish is the most interesting of all. Or the one that suits my palate. Chef is quite generous with ingredients that makes it look like huge croissant.

Taste is pretty spot on, yet unique that have its own taste feature. Freshness of parsley do give it a slight much crips yet sour bitter after taste as you bite on the buttery bread. Very interesting. It is a dish that worth to order to check it out. Remember to squeeze on the lime.

Fuh, how many of you miss cafe hopping? During this CMCO many of us can order through GRAB Food. Since now more F&B operators are accepting dining in, here we go again in doing our part to support local businesses. Heard alot about this Australia inspired  cafe in Bangsar, Urban Daybreak. A new cafe operator from Penang that is penetrating KL Market. Some say is one of the best new cafe in Bangsar.

Some of you might recognize them as Jeremy Chick’s during MCO or CMCO. The chicken rice delivery in Bangsar.

best cafe in bangsar

To my surprise, there is actually a queue during this CMCO and I waited for 30 minutes for my table during lunch time at 2pm.

cafe in bangsar

their menu is pretty straight forward and pricing is the usual cafe standard.

coffee in bangsar

We ordered Cafe Latte @ RM 12 and Honey Latte @ RM 15. Coffee taste is to my liking as a well balance of coffee aroma and milk yet not too acidic. The Honey latte taste much better as there is after hint of sweetness.

best avocado mash

Asked about what is their top recommendation and apparently Avocado Smash @ RM 25 is their best seller. Something simple and direct for your brunch dosage, spread with homemade guacamole, feta cheese, wholegrain bread, roasted cherry tomato, cider and beetroot puree.

Urban Daybreak (8)

Porky Bolognese Sandwich @ RM 28 – spiced pork tomato stew, grilled onionz, mozzarella cheese, homemade hashbrown and sourdough. Italian spaghetti inspired turns to sandwich version. Quite interesting. Hashbrown is thick and crispy.

Urban Daybreak (7)

Stout Pulled Pork with Poached Eggs @ RM 28.50 – sourdough toast, poached eggs, bbq cider vinaigrette, feta cheese, crispy shallots . If your taste bud had awaken, this this would be a suitable dish. Stout pulled pork gives you a punch of flavor with a well balance of sourish taste. Runny egg yolk is just nice.

Urban Daybreak (10)

Urban Daybreak (13)

This is their hidden Steak sandwich @ RM 35 which is off from the menu. Do request from the waiter. Among all the sandwich, this is my liking among the all. A slight toast with butter fragrant on the top., with sourdough is soft in between and steak is done to perfection. Medium rare. – recommended

Urban Daybreak (11)

I am a sucker for this item. Will order whenever any brunch menu has it. Signature French Toast @ RM 24. Serve with brioche loaf, brulee banana, homemade salted peanut butter jam, mapple syrup and crispy bacon. What I find it interesting is the pairing of salted peanut butter, banana and broice bread together. A taste of salty, sweet, creamy. Kinda interesting. Best to order 1 portion and share among friends.

I find that this cafe is worth to pay a visit and would I return back? Yes, it had been a while since I last discover a decent cafe that worth to revisit. Could this be one of the cafe in KL? Maybe you guys share with me. I would say easily top 3 in Bangsar.

MCO had made alot of business evolve. Much later on the phase 4 of MCO, starting to see a few of my favourite restaurant start to do delivery (read here past experience). Then saw Roost at Bangsar (sit right above used to be corner unit of Chawan, Bangsar) having a delivery menu for limited period of time. I got excited and look through their menu. Roost in Bangsar, KL is actually one of a very few restaurants that work with local farmers or using local fresh ingredients to prep on food.

farm to table

also they are actually quite generous, for first 10km is free delivery. So for my order I just top up just a little bit. As look at the  menu, we were quite greedy and for 3 pax we order a set for 4 @ RM 250.

comes with :

  1. Falafel with Salted Yogurt & Coriander
  2. Hummus & Kalamata Olives
  3. Mushroom Truffle Arancini (one of their signature item)
  4. Pumpkin Ravioli with Spinach & Almond
  5. Chicken Schnitzel with Cauliflower Rice & Tomato Jam
  6. Snapper with Borlotti Beans
  7. Braised Spanish Beef Cheeks with Mash Potato
  8. Dark Chocolate Gateau with nuts
  9. Baked Local Figs with Cream Cheese (fig was not fresh that day, I opted for dark chocolate). All their dishes are very generous with ingredients.

Menu is right at the end of the post and to place order via PM Roost KL on Instagram or Facebook (@roostkl)  /watsapp : 0122090226 also remember to tell them this special code TAUFULOUXROOSTKL to get 10% off.  

local ingredients

We were too ambitious, as it was too much for us. A set for 4 is more like for 5 pax easily.

Roost Bangsar (3)

Pumpkin Ravioli with Spinach & Almond is one of the main highlight in the list. Creamy to my liking as pumkin taste is quite prominent. Ravioli not too thick, yet soft and just perfect in size. Easily there are 5-6 medium size ravioli in it. I dip it with their fresh bread. Taste pretty good too as I add in a huge slab of butter myself.

Roost Bangsar (4)

Roost Bangsar (5)

Falafel with Salted Yogurt & Coriander is done to perfection. The spices and the softness of the filling in it yet dipping with the clear sour salted yogurt and coriander gives the fresh flavour it needs. a well balance entry.

Roost Bangsar (6)

The simplest way to enjoy hummus is with their chef made bread. A big dip on the top and just put into your mouth.

Roost Bangsar (7)

Chicken Schnitzel with Cauliflower Rice & Tomato Jam Sort of healthy kind of dish but the suprise of this dish is when you squeeze the lemon onto pf the chicken schnitzel then you dip it with their tomato jam. A whole new of flavour. Love it.

Roost Bangsar (8)

This dish Braised Spanish Beef Cheeks with Mash Potato is like a dish that near melts in your mouth. The beef cheeks is so soft and juicy. Mash potato is creamy, light and airy. A little salty for my liking but did feed back to the restaurant, it could also perhaps, if not have been cooking quite a while at home where i am using a little of brown sugar and pinch of salt, and when comes a heavy flavour gives you a notch. Been a while to enjoy such a strong flavour.

I guess our palate are healthy now.

Mushroom Truffle Arancini – is one of their signature entree dish.

Roost Bangsar (12)

The first dish that we finish is Snapper with Borlotti Beans. Fish is fresh, and fried to just nice. A sea of beans that keeps you digging in especially with bread.

Roost Bangsar (13)

Got a complimentary chocolate cookie with seasalt. We felt that if this is microwave for 5 second then top a scoop of ice cream, then it is perfecto!

Roost Bangsar (14)

a meal that we are truely satisfied after a long MCO lock in.

Roost Bangsar

AS the finale is as good as in the outlet. I forgot to put the dessert in my fridge as when comes to desert only realise it is melting. Their dessert so far never disappoint. A perfect ending. Soft, creamy chocolate cake, with pistachio nuts and a bed of chocolate soil is a great combination.

Covid-19 indieed is a worldwide pandemic. It had make alot of business closed down. However, it is also a test for many business owners out there. I called it a force transition of business strategy. In Malaysian landscape also facing its own challenges. Especially retail and F&B. The peeps from Urban Daybreak could not operate on their usual cafe hence during this MCO they have created a new brand known as Jeremy’s Chicks in their current URban Daybreak outlet selling Chicken Rice.

The Farm FoodCraft (6)

My friend try out their Mushroom Pan Mee @ RM 27. Pan Mee tossed in creamy mushroom sauce and dash of truffle oil. Never knew pan mee can be uplifted to a new modern dining. Clever cooking. Not too creamy and light enough for a quick lunch.

The Farm FoodCraft (7)

Read a few comments mention that their Curry Beef Lasagne @ RM 25 is recommended. Decided to give it a try. A combination of beef, potato and onions with garden salad on the side.

Indeed this is pretty good as I finish the whole piece by myself. Layer of Paper thin  dough to stack it up. Cook to perfection as the layers is soft, nice mince beef and cheese is just right. -Recommended

Would advise some of you to share this portion as it could be too much for you, unless you are like sort of a cheese lover.

Asam Boy Smoothie @ RM 18 – Young Mango, Asam Boi, with housemade pickled papaya and mango. Indeed a perfect drink for our hot weather for a thirst quencher. (just a bit on the steep side)
