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.
