Good Food & Co @ Jaya Shopping Centre
January 13, 2015
Husband-&-wife team Jonathan & Lydia helm this new cafe with a modern Australian influence - Jonathan spent several years working at restaurants in Perth before returning to KL in 2014.
Good Food & Co is pretty passionate about its offerings, with a clearly thought-out variety of well-prepared, crowd-pleasing recipes including the 'Eggs, Peas!' (RM15), featuring two slow-cooked kampung eggs served with smashed peas, paprika aioli, crispy salami bits & the kitchen's own-baked bread. The restaurant relies on locally sourced ingredients for most of its fare.
The menu evolves everyday, with new specials constantly surfacing, but some egg-loving staples remain, such as the no-meat shakshouka (RM16), a steaming-hot stew of tomatoes & veggies topped with a baked egg, & the fluffy-chunky, fresh-&-warm frittata, a brunch possibility tinged with roasted beetroot & pumpkin (RM15).
Good Food should prove popular with the lunch crowd too, thanks to the likes of this hearty sandwich comprising chicken thigh that's juicy & flavoursome, marinated in garlic confit & a house spice mix, crowned with cheddar cheese, herb dressing, aioli & tomato relish, packed into bread that provides a solid chew. RM17.
Hot dog lovers will want to try The Good Dog (RM18), constructed with Langkawi-made Sailor's beef-&-lamb sausage, nicely textured & spiced with cumin & chilli peppers, grilled & topped with caramelised onions. Or for a lighter snack, there are 'jaffles' too - toasties stuffed with tomatoes & cheese (RM8).
Coffee is made with beans roasted right here in PJ by Sprezzatura. All in all, Good Food & Co is a noteworthy addition to Section 14's F&B landscape, living up to its name with no-nonsense edibles - expect to hear more about it in the weeks ahead.
