A Minor Place & Butter Tree
March 13, 2012
Time for the most important meal for the day: let's return to A Minor Place at Plaza Damas & check out Butter Tree at Section 17 for bread, bacon & eggs.
Earlier entry on A Minor Place: March 6.
Fluffy eggs? Yep. Authentically porky bacon? Check. Well-prepared sliced mushrooms & toast? Pretty much. Throw in a fresh-fried hash brown & a plump, savory-juicy bratwurst, & it makes waking up at 9am on a weekend worthwhile.
French toast with bacon & caramelized bananas, drizzled in maple syrup. There's a homemade touch to this _ simple enough for many to whip up at home, foraging for basic ingredients from the fridge to toss into the pan.
Wine isn't sold at A Minor Place, but bring your own bottle; no corkage charge is imposed.
Feel it's too early to start drinking during breakfast? Order the latte, if you must.
Cappuccino & ice-blended, all competently executed.
Next, heading to Butter Tree bakery, which started serving all-day brekkie dishes this month.
Scrambled eggs on toast with turkey ham. Decent, though uninspired.
More sinful: Monte Carlo sandwiches _ chicken ham & cheese between egg-battered bread.
Densely hearty, moist Guinness choc cake. The bitter taste of the booze is pleasantly pervasive.
Salted caramel & peanut butter whoopie pies. A bit too cold & hard when they leave the chiller; let them sit a little longer at room temperature, so the texture turns more enjoyable.
Pineapple & red bean macarons, RM2.50 per piece (RM10 for five). Not bad, but not the best.
Scalding-hot coffee & tea are available. The service at Butter Tree is as cheerful as the setting.
Bonus place: Frontera at Jaya One also serves breakfast recipes, of the Mexican persuasion.
Something that's full of starchy-creamy flavor: Huevos Rancheros _ fried eggs with flour tortillas, ranchero tomato sauce, sour cream & guacamole. Ay caramba, this is addictive!
Wet your lips with Patron Anejo premium tequila & Patron Cafe XO coffee-tequila.
Horny Margarita & Jalapeno-infused Sauza Bianco Margarita (more fiery than we had figured!).
The Don, a mountain of a Margarita, made potent with Don Julio Reposado tequila, Remy Martin & Grand Marnier. Hic!
Eat, drink & be merry, for in the afternoon, we will surely need a siesta.
