Breakfast is one of the most important meal of the day. With that in mind, Best Restaurant To Eat was invited for a breakfast menu review at the Bites Café located at 72, Jalan Tasik Utama 7, Lake Fields Sungei Besi, 57000 Kuala Lumpur.
Bites Café décor is one of a casual hip café setting, with artistically decorated posters lining up on all its walls with comfortable seating and friendly environment.
The emphasis at Bites Café @ Lake Fields Sungei Besi is on the an all day breakfast menu, ranging from Mexican, Italian and all the way to Malaysian breakfast with a special twist on some of its varieties.
There is also a childrens’ corner where little kids can play while you can sip your cuppa of your favourite coffee while enjoying a nice breakfast here.
EGG BENEDICT was the first dish on the table for us to review. The serving comes with a runny flowing egg, Smoked Salmon, a little of the sautéed spinach, Hollandaise sauce, toast and some fresh salad.
Next, was THE FRENCH breakfast which is a French toast with chicken ham, melted cheese, maple syrup & topped with sunny side up. The toast was perfectly toasted to give it that light fluffy crunch.
This was followed by the BREAKFAST PIZZA – a serving of Beef Bacon, Egg, Baby Spinach, Mushroom, Baked Beans and topped with some sprinkle of Cheese – The ingredients are found mostly in the Big Breakfast set but here it is served on a thin crust crispy pizza dough.
and then, THE ITALIAN BREAKFAST – Frittata with turkey ham, onions, spinach, cherry tomato, eggs. A fabulous, exceptional and a thick layer of soft scrambled eggs (4 eggs to make this) made this dish a delight to be eaten. The choice of ingredient used were very complimentary. This dish is specially for eggs lovers.
THE MEXICAN is wrap in a burritos, came with a topping of tangy home made sauce. It is a breakfast burritos with tortilla, chicken sausage, egg, mushroom, cheese.
CLUB SANDWICH WAFFLE– The freshly made flaky and crisp waffles used here are the type of thin crusted instead of the meaty thick type which is a better choice. Sandwiched in between the waffles, are the beef bacon, scrambled egg, fresh strip of lettuce, cheese and tartar sauce .
Next, we had the GRILLED CHICKEN & WAFFLE SANDWICH, the waffles comes with grilled chicken, sautéed mushroom, melted cheese, and a densely infused mushroom sauce that gives it a unique flavour & aroma. Licking up the sauce with a piece of waffle and top with a piece of chicken, it amplifies the overall flavours.
BERRIES & BANANA PANCAKE – is a super thin and crusty pizza dough, makes it perfect as the base for the topping of the Berries compote, bananas whipping cream and the flavourful maple syrup. This dish is more of a munching snack or desserts, although it is more than sufficient for a small eater.
The POTATO SALAD – The crunch of the boiled potato with an added drizzle of ham and cheese mayonnaise coating was a superb mix and a very complimentary starters.
Next is the GRILLED SALMON FILLET ON CRISPY POTATO CAKE, it is served with sautéed asparagus & homemade sauce which lent a subtle fragrance to the dish, The salmon was pan fried which has crisp skin while the flesh of the salmon retains its’ natural taste.
Lastly we had the BEEF BACON & SHRIMP PASTA – The natural salty taste of the beef bacon, springy shrimp topped with a layer of chilli sambal that is slightly spicy add a new dimension to the taste and positively addictive.
As for desserts, we started with the DESSERT WAFFLE TOPPED WITH GULA MELAKA ICE CREAM – This is a dessert worth saving your appetite for as the smooth and light sweetness of the flavourful Gula Melaka ice-cream jive well into the waffles.
For coffee, we had the AFFOGATO WITH CRUSHED CRANBERRY ALMOND BISCOTTI WITH: PANDAN KAYA ICE CREAM – a light single shot espresso – the espresso shot is not that strong and blended seamlessly with the smooth and velvety ice-cream of the pandan kaya, although we would have preferred the normal vanilla ice cream.
Lastly we had the AFFOGATO WITH CRUSHED CRANBERRY ALMOND BISCOTTI WITH COCONUT ICE CREAM.
