Brunch @ Bistro a Table

Whipping up a welcome reason to wake up on weekends, Bistro a Table now serves brunch every Saturday and Sunday, 10:30am through 2pm.

Rise and shine with some sunny-side-up: Bistro's duck egg croque madame with Gruyere béchamel and Italian turkey ham (RM19++) is as good as a yolk-based breakfast gets.

Truffled organic scrambled eggs, beautifully creamy and aromatic, with portabello mushrooms, oven-roasted roma tomatoes and toasted sourdough toast (RM25++).

House-smoked Tasmanian King Salmon with eggs on toast with sautéed baby spinach (RM28++). Possibly PJ's tastiest rendition of this recipe, boasting a savory ooey-gooeyness that makes it real comfort food for brunch-goers.

Not everything here has egg as its marquee player (we're praying for egg yolk-flavored ice cream someday!), but this fresh croissant is well worth biting into, especially since it's partnered with rich French jams and brilliant Lescure butter (RM9.50++).

More elaborate than regular home-prepared cereals: organic Swiss Bircher muesli (RM19++), spruced up with sheep yogurt and cassis coulis for a fun fruity-milky mix.

Buttermilk scones (RM17++), prepared a la minute, with clotted cream, orange marmalade and raspberry jam. Ideal for folks preferring a denser, cake-like texture in their scones.

Organic corn fritters, served warm with avocado salsa, oven-roasted roma tomatoes, coriander salad and turkey bacon (RM24++). Recommended; wish this were available more widely in the Klang Valley.

Ricotta pancakes with Gula Melaka syrup and organic bananas (RM25++). Can't tell if this is healthy or sinful. Or whether it's possible for something to be both.

Banana bread with mascarpone cheese (RM9.50++). The menu is expected to remain more or less the same for the next few weeks, so if anything here catches your fancy, make a reservation with Bistro, pronto!

A full range of wine and bubbly remains available in the a.m.

  1. When BAT posted this on FB, I told Hubby "Sean will be there this weekend for sure!". The breakfast offerings look divine.

    1. Baby sumo: hahah, yeah the list of egg dishes looked too tempting to resist for too long! If I had to recommend my favorites here, it'd be all the duck egg croque Madame, the truffled scrambled eggs and the corn fritters, but pretty much every dish was worthwhile :D

  3. Nice! Seems like they have a vast selection for breakfast, would like to try the muesli but this place doesn't seem cheap. Banana bread with mascarpone cheese sounds really good, good combination?

    1. Eat Only Lar: ya, the muesli seemed a bit on the pricey side, though the portion was more filling than it looked, heh =) i'm not a big fan of banana bread generally; the one here tasted fresh and was quite dense, but i think it was overshadowed for us by the other dishes here :D

  4. ooohhh I'm always looking for a good corn fritter! But the other day, I had this amazing banana bread! It's a house made banana and walnut bread with espresso butter and maple syrup... hard to find one to beat that :P

  7. Hi, do you blog about hawker stalls' F&B too? I have seen a lot of your entries that are mostly casual and fine dining restaurants. it would be great if you do blog about hawker stalls' food too unless your blog main aims at casual and fine dining restaurants. Cheers! :)

  8. Dude, you basically ordered all the items on the menu (as usual), didn't you? I have to say, if I have not before, I'm actually kinda grateful for that. Not many other blogs manage to do this and hey, what better way to get a snapshot of a restaurant's offerings than to get the entire spectrum, eh?

    OOT: Read Janice's comment above - true hor. Jom let's pegi hawker stalls sama-sama. The closest you ever got in recent memory is a daichow. Let's go hunt down that elusive Hokkien Mee place! :D
