Just before leaving for the Tali Tenang event by United Colours of Malaysia and RandomAlphabets, I was privileged to be given a chance to have breakfast at the “old” Jarrod & Rawlins outlet at Damansara Height, which has probably undergone a huge cosmetic change as of now. What would I give to visit it again, especially after a very thoughtful Elaine decided to take a few of us, namely YapThomas, JoshuaOngYS and the popular KampungBoyCityGal to have a try at their ALL DAY breakfast set instead of their sausages which they are popular for.
So we do not hesitate when ada rezeki, I always say. Greeting me at the gorgeous set up (perfect for private functions, too, if I may add) was a sight to behold that would have whetted a thousand appetites in one go, ah, but I’m just exaggerating.
The J&R Special – “The Full Works” (RM34) consists of two organic eggs sunny side up, with two sausages, bacons, grilled tomato, hash brown, mushroom, Heinz baked beans, toast or fried bread served with coffee or tea and orange juice. Enough to feed an active body for the day, especially since I was up with a huge task of controlling a crowd of 200 walking through the streets of Bangsar.
The hash brown isn’t what you’d normally get from McDonalds; it’s the real deal. Eaten along with the tasty bacon bits, pieces of nicely grilled sausages and wrapped in Heinz baked beans, I assure you it is a breakfast fit for the rich! (Though at RM34 it’s still affordable la :p)
J&R’s Egg Benedict Indulgence (RM28) however is something a little lighter than the “Full Works”. Made of two soft poached organic eggs with your choice of bacon, smoked salmon or ham (in this case, I chose Smoked Salmon!) on toast topped with Hollandaise Sauce served with coffee/tea and orange juice could just be fulfilling enough for you, especially if you’re looking for something lighter and easier to handle. I assure you their Hollandaise sauce is creamy and tasty, and certainly did go well with the smoked salmon, eggs and hot fresh toast 😉
However I managed to miss the Egg Florentine (RM28) which came very early, yes, before I was awake :p – organic soft poached duck egg on a bed of spinach and hash brown base topped with Hollandaise Sauce served with coffee/tea and orange juice. KampungBoyCityGal covered it so head over to their website to see what it’s all about!
Now THIS is what I’ve been raving about: the J&R hangover special (RM35), which is a piece of bacon and egg “butty” with an Alka Seltzer and a Bloody Mary. What more could you ask for with a pounding headache threatening to make you throw up at any point of time?
The “butty” is made so simple, and yet each egg and bacon pieces cooked in such splendour, that it makes for a perfect accompaniment to the Bloody Mary that will help sooth the throbbing headaches and stomach pains.
An actual Alka Seltzer is given to us for us to dump it into water, which we would then drink up in order to sooth the pain and remove the “air” in the stomache.
But when combined with Bloody Mary, everything suddenly seem so right. These 3 maketh the J&R hangover special which will definitely make a big impact to the industry, so, what have they gotta lose!
After having our scrumptious breakfast meal at Jarrod & Rawlins we found ourselves taking a last look at the alcoholic section, while the meat chopping section had to go about living as per normal.
In the end of the day, I guess I’ll always have a soft spot for Jarrod & Rawlins since they make awesome breakfast 😛
