TableTalk @ Taman Tun

Food lovers in Taman Tun Dr Ismail are talking this month about TableTalk, one of this neighborhood's cheeriest cafes for dawn-to-dusk dining.

Sunny Eggs Benedict (RM12.50+), nicely executed, to welcome early birds starting 7:30 a.m.

Breakfast dishes remain available through 5 p.m. daily, so this French toast (RM7.50+) can serve as both brunch offering & teatime treat.

Fans of fruits will likely love this lovely-looking salad (RM18++), sweetly riddled with rock melon, berries, rose granita, baked meringue & honey-lemon dressing. 

Prawn souffle (RM18+), fluffy & flavorful, with chili sauce that packs a spicy sting.

Not everything here's a bona fide smash; the salmon tortilla cones (RM22+) are bountiful with smoked fish, dill, cucumber & creme fraiche, becoming a nice bargain for the price, but this somehow comes across as blandly doughy.

Too-starchy chowder, with scallops & lobster meat. Still, its RM18+ cost won't cripple the wallet.

Save space for a sweet finish: we'd recommend the crunchy, saffron-infused meringue (RM18+).

Also pretty interesting: shortbread sandwiched with mascarpone & mixed berries (RM18+).

Wine is sold by both glass & bottle. Not a wide range, but well-chosen.

With last orders at 10:30 p.m., there's no excuse to miss out on a meal at TableTalk.

    1. TNG: yeah, it's a bit difficult to spot on that row, since it's a corner outlet that's not particularly prominent, but here's hoping they'll get the attention they deserve =)

  12. Its good to see people being inventive, even if that means occasionally misses among the hits! Prawn souffles look like banana muffins!

    1. YouHadYourLunch: true, i'd definitely prefer a restaurant that takes some risks in search of great rewards, rather than one that plays it safe. and the prawn souffle was certainly a gamble, but i think it pays off, heh :D

  17. went there for dinner with my wife recently.
    ordered the roast beef.
    waiter didn't ask how we wanted it done.
    service was slow >30 minutes for food to arrive.
    and when it did, it was the dryest roast beef ever.
    poor quality. we complained & got a measly discount for something so expensive.
    wife's salmon dish was just so-so as well.
    not value for money.
    and not highly recommended at all.
    totally spoilt our dinner experience.
