One of the latest hype brunch place is this Rise & Shine by Tapestry located in Chow Kit, KL that sits right opposite of Hotel Stripes KL. A place currently well known for its insta worthy brunch place in KL. A place is indeed crazy for long queue over the weekend. If you are here inbetween 9.30am – 3pm, do prepare to queue for at least 60-90 minutes.
alot of sunlight comes up from the natural lighthing from the above. It do get pretty warm if you are seated in that area. But for picture purpose, many are willing.
Believe they partner with 8ounce for their coffee.
When it comes to food, there are hits and misses as alot people say it is over hyped and not worth it. I have different views as there are some items worth to order and some are not.
Alot people are here for one of their well known signature dish – Rise & Shine Egg Drop @ RM 22 . Indeed I would rate this as a must order item. Filled with fluffy soft-scrambled free-range kampong eggs with cheddar, caramelised onions, sriracha aioli on a hot cross bun. We ordered both to try out and thinks that the normal one is suffieicient to hit a satisfaction spot. The Sarsi-glazed beef at Rm 8 does not do much impact on the taste.. – recommended
LINGUINE with battered edamame, seasonal vegetables, tomato stew, served with freshly grated Grana Padano choose to add lamb meatballs. For a simple dish as dish, they have done it well.
As first we were skeptical on this dish as we already ordered most of the item. However most of us are still not full from the first round order and decided to make this FRIED CHICKEN as add on. Lightly-battered fried chicken brushed with honey sriracha glaze and served with a side of fries and fennel salad. turns out to be better than we expected. The glaze is good, fill with mild sweet, souries and bitter taste that suits on the sauce and also fried to perfection. – recommended
A typical breakfast for RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT, on bubble and squeak, poached eggs and bunga kantan hollandaise. you also can choose one of the 3 options below:
1. Beetroot-cured salmon
2. Sarsi-glazed beef bacon
3. Halloumi (v) @ RM 28
The rest of the dish below are all sub par or so so such as:
MEATBALL SUB Lamb meatballs drenched in tomato stew finished with Grana Padano shavings on a sub roll served with onion rings @ RM 28
FRENCH TOAST, with fresh berries, mixed berries compote, Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or ice cream. A dish which is not too bad which I think at this price they could have do much better.
PANCAKES, with mixed berries compote, fresh berries, edible chocolate soil and Earl Grey gula melaka (v)(s) choose to add Sarsi-glazed beef bacon or Halloumi (v) @ RM 25. Pancake is dense and hard. not the fluffy type. Give this a pass if you can.
Love their coffee as we ordered total of 8 different glass as it was a big group of 10 of us for birthday celebration. flavourful Long Black @ RM 10 & Latte @ RM 13. Coffee is pretty good and we all agree to it
Cakes were alright as there were 4 options on that day.
If you are looking for some nice brunch place to try in KL or a nice cafe to chill after 3pm, I overall think this is not too bad. But if to wait for 60-90 minutes for a table I would say it is kinda waste of time.
3 item if you are not sure what to order and I think it is worth to try for first timer are:
- Rise & Shine Egg Drop
- RISE & SHINE EGGS BENEDICT
- FRIED CHICKEN or Linguine
The rest will be depending on your personal taste bud and they might improve along the way.
