Anggun Fusion @ Plaza Damas 3, Sri Hartamas

'Something for everyone' could be the motto here; the results might not be 100 percent successful, but only curmudgeons would pooh-pooh a place that makes a clear effort to please.

Check out the genuinely-all-day Western breakfasts (yep, available after dusk too) that have eggs poached, scrambled, whipped sunny-side-up or into omelets ...

... or (unexpected peanut butter alert!) Malaysian morning favorites like nasi lemak coupled not only with prawn sambal & kerisik but chicken rendang suffused with gobs of peanut butter for a one-of-a-kind nutty-creamy-savory spiciness.

Anggun's bruschetta boasts the touch of a benevolent chef who piles plenty of smoked salmon, avocado, mozzarella, tomatoes & tapenade on crusty bread.

However, we'd advise skipping the clam-&-mussel platter, suffocated by a cloying white sauce. 

Other highlights at this halal outlet (warning: wine's verboten): filet-mignon-&-mushroom salad, nasi impit 'percal kampung' & lamb burgers.

Anggun Fusion,
Plaza Damas 3, Jalan Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur.

  2. Kerisik with the nasi lemak. They serve it like that? You don't mean serunding, do you?

    1. CK: worth trying once, i think! maybe the next time you're at plaza damas 3, since this is in the same building as Top Brew cafe (this is on the ground floor, facing the main road) :D

    1. Bangsar Babe: yeah, the fusion element is not really overplayed on the menu here though, despite the name of the outlet. i'm not sure i'd return, especially since wine is unavailable, but the nasi lemak was memorable, heh :D

  8. That's the important part! A lot of F&B places forget the "service" bit of their industry - if Anggun Fusion aims to please, I'm all for that. :)

    Kudos to them!

    Their all day breakfasts looks good! I'm not a huge fan of fries though, would be nice to have an option to switch to mashed potatoes or a baked potato. :D

    1. Huai Bin: yeah, i think their heart's in the right place. they seem genuinely concerned that their customers enjoy their meals here. and they try to have fun too! :D yeah, i think a bit of customization would work here. i'm not a major fan of fries either, and i could have done without them on the breakfast platter =)
