This place needs no introduction anymore. It has been overly mentioned here and there about its food and ambiance as well as its elusive location.

Jam & Kaya Cafe, PJ Palm Sports Centre

The reason I wrote about this place was because I brought my camera along with me on this particular day for a special occasion. It hasn’t seen the day light for quite some time. And so, I guess it was appropriate to bring out before the year ends.

Latte and Iced Caramel Latte

For a non coffee connoisseur, the Latte (RM8.90) and Iced Caramel Latte (RM10.90) were pretty decent (more like above average). Besides that, they were priced well compared to other cafes/coffee joints.

Aussie Big Breakky

Their Aussie Big Breakky (RM22.90) was pretty hearty for breakfast. The plate consisted of scrambled eggs, chicken sausages, ham, crispy hash brown, sautéed mushroom, greens and two slices of bread. I liked the way they prepared the eggs with some chopped chives for some extra flavour. That said, the mushrooms could be better – perhaps cook a lil bit longer.

Jam & Kaya Pancakes

The Jam & Kaya (RM13.50) pancakes were awesome. The pancakes, decorated with sliced strawberries and blueberries, were adequately fluffy and light while the combination of kaya and strawberry jam was brilliant. Topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, it was sinfully good.

Overall, the meal was good. Coupled that with the calm ambiance and affordable pricing, I do concur with the statements made by (mostly) others that Jam & Kaya Café is indeed a nice place to dine… and it is slightly challenging to locate.

The recent long weekend/holiday came at the right time. It was perfect period to rest, recuperate and rejuvenate. It was also a good time to explore new places and try new things and food. For me, I did the latter as I was eager to try this place; Map’s which is located in Bandar Sunway.

I was eager because 1) they serve breakfast at early hours and 2) they serve porky breakfast at ungodly hours on weekends. As I usually have a habit (and I blaming it on my biological clock) to wake up early even on weekends and holidays, I like places/restaurants/cafe like this as I know the mass crowd hasn’t woken up yet let alone crowding the restaurant/cafe.

The place was relatively quiet when we were there. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised as it was closed to 9AM on a Sunday when we arrived and there were ample of parking lots outside. The service was prompt; simple, straightforward menu was shown and orders were taken within 10 minutes.

Iced Hazelnut Cappuccino and Hazelnut Milk

The drinks arrived first; Iced Hazelnut Cappuccino (RM10) and cold Hazelnut Milk (RM8). I liked that they asked beforehand whether I would like my cold coffee to be sweeten in which I gladly said yes. Served in a tall glass with chocolate swirls, it was filled with cubes of coffee and milk. The overall taste was pleasant and mildly sweet yet the presence of coffee shots was there. The milk, on the other hand, was refreshing; easy to drink with subtle taste of the flavoured syrup.

Porky Pancakes by Map's, Bandar Sunway

Two breakfast meals were chosen on that day. Their Porky Pancakes (RM15) was served first. The presentation was simple and clean. It was multi layer of goodness; egg, pork bacons, roasted potatoes and pancakes. The sight of wobbly sunny side egg was enough to get my appetite kicking in full gear. The mixture of savoury bacons coupled with the sweetness of maple syrup worked well while the creamy liquid of egg yolk brought together the crispy, fluffy cubed potatoes and pancakes.

Breakfast In Bed by Map's, Bandar Sunway

The Breakfast In Bed (RM19) came within minutes after the pancakes. Beneath the pork bacons were cocktail sausages and roasted potatoes while on the sides were nicely cooked egg on large crispy toast, baked beans and sautéed mushrooms. The platter itself was decent. I liked the toast with the egg though I wished there were two eggs instead of one.

Gula Melaka Cotton Cheese Cake by Map's, Bandar Sunway

To complete a wholesome meal, dessert is a must regardless of the time. And Gula Melaka Cotton Cheese Cake (RM11) we ordered. The size was bigger than I thought it would be and with that, it was worth the price. Layers of gula melaka, mild cheese concoction and desiccated coconuts complemented each other though the taste of each component was rather subtle and it wasn’t overly sweet.

Overall, the experience was satisfactory. I got what I wanted; a good meal in a quiet ambiance on a quiet weekend. I got to give credits to them for executing/cooking the eggs perfectly. With this, my list of porky places has grown, so… yay!
