Breakfast @ Spicy Kitchen, Desa Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur



When it comes to new things to try, always expect me to be the first in the line. After reading Gluttons on a Diet where they were extolling the virtues of this amazing Roti Bakar Telur Cheese, I knew this was a MUST HAVE for my breakfast.


When I ordered this at Spicy Kitchen, I was a bit hesistant since there was no signboards saying this particular dish existed. However when I told the man doing the roti canai at the stove I wanted the Roti Bakar, he straight away knew what I was talking about indicating it must be super popular here.

It looked so beautiful when it arrived with a fried eggy topping. Essentially a French Toast, it consisted of white bread sandwiched with cheese and then fried with egg. What makes this unique was the taste - a combination of sweet and salty. The egg part was sweet like a French Toast but the cheese portion was salty. The combination of the two flavours worked so well together as it wasn't too cloying while the salty part was just nice with the thick layer of cheese. It's not cheap though as one portion costs RM4 but the cheese part is definitely thicker than those thin Cheddar pieces you find in the sliced cheese packets.


Splashie Boy went for the conventional Roti Telur (RM1.50) which looked good too. He said it tasted nice even though I didn't get a chance to eat it.

Breakfast here tends to be quite quiet compared to their night time business which always see them packed. The Roti Bakar Telur Cheese is available at all hours so it's not necessary a breakfast item. Aside from this place in Desa Sri Hartamas, they also have one in Bandar Menjalara.

OMG, the roti bakar looks so delicious! Another "must" visit place.
Anyway for breakfast, why not head down to Mid Valley? There is a new shop called "Toastbox" which serve kopitiam style food. It actually started at Singapore's Food Republic. Their quality can be compared to the Yakun Singapore (which you reviewed from your last SG trip). boo_licious, you should give it a try! :)

Ahhh, another favourite breakfast of mine - Roti Telur. I like to add some bawang to it. YUM!

boo_licious said...

mikelee - I read abt it from Tankiasu's blog (Toastbox) but yet to try as I have not visited Mid Valley for a long time. That butter mountain pix he had up in his blog was scary though.

cat cat - this one was eggy and crispy based on the looks. I didn't get a chance to eat it as he finished it all!

Ya..its one of their signature. For those of you who stay after the Kepong LDP tol, you can visit their original stall at Bandar Menjalara. Also, their roti kaya is damn good....you can ask them to make roti kaya + pisang...tell them u want it to be "garing"....whoooo hooo!!!

Don't go there if you are on a diet! The ayam masala is not bad too!!!!

Precious Pea said...

Wow wow wow!!!! Just the way i like it. I used to make this at home but I add the cheese into the egg instead of sandwich it between the bread. Must go try out this place soon. Even the roti telur looks good.
