5 new places to go for the perfect weekend brunch
Ladies who brunch
1. Ra.Ft Café/Bistro at Binjai 8
The pitch at Ra.Ft is offering you the best food, coffee and service to keep you coming back for more. The unmissable aroma of fresh in-house roasted beans will linger in the air as you peruse a menu of health-conscious menu items to give you a positive start to your day. After powering through your hummus or smashed avocado on gluten free bread, give yourself a pat on the back and end the meal on a sweet note. We hear the decadent ice-cream topped churro/cake concoction always hits the spot.
2. Brasserie at St. Regis, Kuala Lumpur
Bubbly and the Earth's bounty can be found at the Sunday Brunch at the Brasserie at St. Regis Kuala Lumpur. Ending each week on a high note of decadence and gastronomy, these French-Mediterranean themed brunches take place in the stately room of mirrors and marble housed within one of the world's most notable luxury hotels.
Kick things off with succulent morsels of flesh lifted from Royal Alaskan King Crab legs, the freshest Fine de Claire oysters, and slices of beautiful smoked and cured salmon. An exceptional highlight of this buffet is the burrata and multi-coloured heirloom tomatoes—palate-coating creaminess spiked with the piquant flavour of tomatoes and a sharp balsamico. The carving station features a glistening roast—a Black Angus rib eye cooked to a perfect gradient of pinks—alongside options of poultry, fish with all the accoutrements. A selection of small a la carte plates can also be made to order while glasses of Verve Ciicquot, red or white wines enjoy continuous refills.
The Sunday Brunch is priced at MYR298 nett per person with non-alcoholic beverages and RM468 nett per person with alcoholic beverages between 12.00pm to 3.00pm every Sunday. For more information, email [email protected] or call +60327276666.
3. Neighbourhood Coffee
Dive into the weekend as you sink your fork into what could only be likened to a plated stack of clouds. Fuwa fuwa pancakes, a Japanese invention and better known worldwide as soufflé pancakes, they are monumentally thicker, softer and fluffier than the ordinary disc of batter the Americans put out. Besides the pancakes served with luscious Japanese nama cream, brunch with eggs, toast, and the works is also offered daily until 4pm.
4. Ingrained by Ironwoods @ Cellar Eighteen
Ingrained by Ironwoods is an in-store cafe within Cellar 18—a premium retailer of wines, whiskies, spirits and craft beers—that specialises in artisanal products, smoked seafood, specialty coffee and tea. Tuck into a hearty bagel—fresh from the ovens of Kenny Hills Bakers—with Inverawe's Scottish smoked salmon, a smattering of cream cheese and peppery rocket leaves. A leaner carb-free option comes by way of a Smokey Platter with oaky slow-smoked Scottish salmon paired with cold smoked anchovies. Enjoy the meal with a cuppa courtesy of Perth's Blacklist roasters.
5. Kopenhagen Coffee
Mellow and minimal vibes are the perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of a busy workweek. Find yourself soothed as soon as you step into the serene environment evoking a little piece of Scandinavia tucked away in Mont Kiara that will instantly transport you to a land of Nordic charm. Savour freshly baked Scandinavian confectionaries and sip on a great cup of coffee as you unwind within the pristine white space designed for peace-seekers and shutterbugs alike.
