Milk And Butter @ Telawi, Bangsar

Spreading some cafe cheer this Christmas, Milk And Butter has stirred in Telawi, the neighborhood that's increasingly invigorated _ more than ever, this is Bangsar's promised land, a land of milk & butter, bread & honey, tea & coffee.

Milk And Butter won't revolutionize the scene, but it has the potential to be popular, serving crab bruschetta, spinach frittata & even banana leaf-wrapped spaghetti marinara.

Breakfast is offered from morning through night here, so folks can feast at all business hours on these capably executed Eggs Benedict with turkey ham (RM16++).

Beef burger (RM19++), boasting a house-made patty that flirts not only with caramelized onions but battered onion rings too, for twice the breath-polluting potency.

Egg crepes stuffed with scallops, squid, mussels & prawns (RM22++), smoldering in a partnership of saffron cream & hollandaise sauce.

Pan-seared teriyaki chicken with a buttery, leaf-loaded tart (RM17++). Prices here feel pleasant for a street where the cost of salads regularly spikes past RM20.

Liquor-laced souffle, close to custard, with cheese ice cream (RM17++). Fine finish.

We've tasted the butter, so here's the milk, steaming in this Irish Cream latte (RM11++).

Milk And Butter is a no-pork place but it pledges to proffer wine imminently.

All in all, a solid start for this amiable eatery. We wish it well for the months ahead.

Milk And Butter,
25G, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru, Kuala Lumpur.

    1. Ulric: lots of eggy dishes here, served all day long. I'm not sure whether I'll do any round two or three here, since I enjoyed the food but i just wasn't blown away, though I think it's definitely worth at least one visit =) heheh, sounds like you had a caffeinated Christmas! Hopefully you'll still be able to get some restful sleep tonite :D

  4. More and more new eateries are finding their places in Bangsar! But yet, I've only tried a handful of them though I pass by that area quite frequently. The price seems pretty standard nowadays, comparable with other food outlets.

    Merry Christmas, btw...

    1. TNG: yeah, i didn't manage to meet the kitchen team, but i think they're doing a decent job. if i do return here, i'd probably consider trying one of their pastas (mainly the regular spaghettis and linguines) and their other brekkie items (croque madame, etc) :D

    1. Vien: hope you've been having a super-sweet Christmas season too! =) yeah, love that you can get a good light lunch here for under RM20. And my reason for loving all-day brekkies is because i find it so difficult to wake up early enough to eat in the morning, heh :D

  8. Soooooo cheap! After seeing the prices of similar stuff in NZ (at places not half as classy), I really must say we are really fortunate here in Malaysia!

    1. Pureglutton: heheh, there's definitely still space here for a few more good cafes. but yeah, it's been a frenetic pace this year :D i'm more of a garlic fan than an onion fan, but i do like onions with burgers, heh :D

  13. Happy New Year!
    Did a few stops for brunch in a few different cafes over the holiday season, and while the food at Milk & Butter wasn't mind-blowing like you said, I'd still probably go back. Service and prices were decent and the place wasn't packed like a few of the other overhyped competitors :p
    Unless I actually start cooking more at home, I guess this might be the new place for me lol.

  14. I'd give the Eggs Benedict a pass - hardly resembled the picture here! It was between a hardboiled egg and a soft-boil... Waiter insisted that this is how it was done there, tsk
