J&D Espresso @ Oasis BU 11 Bandar Utama

Pork & coffee might not sound like the perfect partnership, but J&D is conquering the crowds on this corner of Bandar Utama with that cool combination.

Start with Scotch eggs (RM12.90+) in warm, pillow-soft pork sausage meat, a comforting change from the last-night's-leftovers versions common at pubs.

Bacon-&-cheese-stuffed croissant, breakfast for which we'd wake up before noon on weekends.

Brunch burger, by special request, with a satisfyingly juicy house-made pork patty sandwiched between sunny-side-ups that sparkle with luminously runny yolks. 

Spaghetti carbonara (RM18.90+), the less-cloying rendition that employs egg but no cream.

Wrapping up this comfort-food meal with a curry of chorizo slices, eggplant & French beans, buried beneath a piping-hot mound of fluffy Duchess potatoes (RM14.90+).

J&D Espresso has links to Mont Kiara's now-defunct Ristretto; cappuccinos, cafe lattes, mochas & flat whites (RM5.90+ each) feature prominently on the menu.

Unlike Ristretto, wine's not available here, but customers can enjoy ice-cold beer with their pork.


J&D Espresso,

  2. Coffee and pork...reminds me of coffee pork rib that I had earlier. That's already weird. This combination...hmm...should be interesting. I know a friend who is obsessed with coffee. I think I'll take her there. She really loves coffee after her meals.

    1. YouHadYourLunch: heheh, i quite liked the stew. it took the longest for the kitchen to prepare, but it was worth the 20-minute wait, since it tasted pretty fresh. the burger's good too, so both choices would be worthwhile =)

    1. Chong: ya, it's difficult to explain the location, but you can google map it. maybe a 10-minute drive from 1 utama. worth hunting for the spaghetti carbonara :D

  13. That's where Paradox cafe is right? Wouldn't mind having those spaghetti carbonara right about now. :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Kelly: oooh, it's quite confusing, cos paradox cafe is at The Oasis in Bandar Utama, whereas this outlet is at Oasis Business Center BU11 in Lebuh Bandar Utama. so they're actually two different locations, quite distant from each other =)

  15. Looks like you've spotted another lovely place that whips out comforting and wholesome meals! Love the idea of carbonara based on eggs and minus the cream - not many places do this now.
