It was one of those days whereby normal routine has to be broken. It was one of those days whereby I sought for something else rather than my usual bowl of noodles for breakfast. Though it might cost 10 times more than usual, I just couldn’t be bothered at all.
And so, I went to La Bodega in Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur to have my western breakfast rather than eastern style. I love to have sausages, ham, eggs, mushrooms and hash browns with a cup of coffee for breakfast. I used to have it almost everyday when I was studying in UK. And it wasn’t as normal as it used to be right now due to time and cost factor.
I’ve heard of La Bodega’s breakfast menu from friends and family. I saw what they have to offer via blogs. And so, I’ve got to try it sooner or later.
Flat White Coffee
From the menu, they offer English Breakfast, Continental Breakfast as well as their signature ‘Big Breakfast’. They only serve the breakfast menu from 9am to 3pm only and so, it is ideal for those who wake up later than usual, but not too late-lah.
Fresh Orange Juice
Upon glancing their menu, I was having a hard time to decide whether to take their Big Breakfast or English Breakfast. They looked almost the same. However, in English Breakfast, you have to pick your choice of meat and vegetables (mushrooms, baked beans, hash browns). Moreover, you will be given free cup of coffee and fresh fruit juice to accompany with the breakfast meal. This only applies if you order the English Breakfast.
In the end, I finally opted for Big Breakfast instead.
The portion was pretty big, if you ask me. According to them, they gave 2 eggs with the choice of how you want it to be cooked; scrambled, omelette, or sunny side up. However, it appeared to be more than 2 eggs. Or maybe their eggs were larger than what you can get in supermarkets.
Beef bacons, scrambled eggs, baked beans, mushrooms and sausages, that’s what I called western style. There was also a toast bread to go with. You can’t see in the pic because it was hidden under the large amount of eggs.
To wash it all down, I ordered a Iced Mocha. Nothing special about it but it was sufficient to fill my stomach with a shot of caffiene. LOL.
As I’m writing this, the Big Breakfast costs around RM 22 while the English Breakfast costs around RM27. Both prices are excluding tax, so you do the math for the final price. It was great breakfast, I would say. And I might return if I get bored of eastern cuisine again. But I’m sure I won’t be going there every weekend!!
