Was lost on options on what to hit on for a nice brunch. Hit into my safe list that I have done over weeks and saw this interesting place that my friend have shared in insta and decided to check them out. Only found out that Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR) is quite an establish brand in Singapore has now landed in KL at TTDI’s Plaza Vads.
I am truly impress with their little entrance that funnel you into an impressive interior that lead you into a huge space. Imagine it is like a wine decanters.
As you open the door, you will be greeted with wired mash wall with merchandise on the right and on the left you can enjoy a nice seating for coffee. Indeed look like a great cafe for brunch in TTDI.
Walk into the dining space is where I felt like dining in a modern classic world war 2 yatch.
Specialty coffee is their forte too. Alot diners are conquering at the bar area to enjoy the nice view of this huge oval base coffee place.
Coffee here are pretty amazing as my latte do give a very nice slight acidic taste yet gives you a nice burst of aroma after taste. Ice Cappuccino is rather interesting too as the first sip with give you a punch of unique taste that later will flow down your throat with the after taste. Lovely blend.
Organic Egg Benedict @ RM 38 – Tender braised Ox Cheeks, Two poached organic eggs & chive hollandaise with honey rye or multigrain bread (we chose multigrain). Love this little mischievous presentation as the rockets covers the ingredient in it and as you break it, you are greeted with the braised ox cheese which is soft, juicy and a great combination with the little spices on the top and the oozy yolk that gives you a nice balance of flavour.
I believe this is one of their signature as I saw tons of orders for this. Indeed its quite a recommended one.
As I am a sucker for brioche bread as it is hard to find a nice one. Fluffy Brioche French Toast @ RM 27 – berries compote, maple syrup & premium vanilla ice cream. I have to say this is one of the best brioche that I have had so far in KL. Every single bite is crisp at the side and it is soft and fluffy in the middle bread base. Maple syrup is not too sweet yet match well with the berries compote that brings you the little acidity of the flavour. Simple and it is a masterpiece. Worth to order this to share.
As I bump into my best friend at the same morning, he highly recommended Turkish Common Man Breakfast, as he loves the combination of flavour and at least it is something different.
I certainly believe this would be one of the most talk about cafe in TTDI the upcoming weeks as they have just open its door recently and it is already running full house yesterday. I have no doubt that they currently top in my list as a perfect brunch place. Indeed a highly recommended cafe in KL now. Perfect service too. Will certainly be back to try out other dishes.
*Set back, as this mark they are one of the most EXPENSIVE brunch place too. However the quality is there.
