2015 Menu: Quartet TTDI

Fifteen months after it first popped up in Taman Tun Dr Ismail & became one of this neighbourhood's most soulful hangouts, Quartet is jazzing up its F&B selection with a retuned, rocking menu for 2015 that aims to drum up the appetites of cafe lovers.

 Begin with brunch: Quartet keeps its eggs running all day long, so customers can have a hearty platter of Eggs Rockafella (RM26.50), featuring lovely poached eggs cushioned with toasted muffins & beef bacon, crowned with capsicum hollandaise, until the kitchen closes at 8:30pm. Swap the bacon for smoked salmon if you prefer fish to meat.

 Most of Quartet's 'Main Table' repertoire comprises baked produce that's made fresh in the cafe's kitchen, so sink your teeth with confidence into a warm, crusty crab toastie (RM33.50), built with rye bread topped with fleshy crab meat, savoury melted mixed cheese & creamy bechamel sauce, served with skillet potatoes for an extra prescription of carbs.

 Quartet passes the crucial sandwich test too; choose either chicken, with tender pan-seared breast meat & buttermilk sauce (RM30), or steak, with marinated rib-eye & ratatouille (RM29). Each makes a full meal on its own, coupled with side salads. 

Quartet's bakers also have some treats up their sleeves for the sweet tooth: Pain blanc, or plain ol' white bread, becomes a delicious delight with cream cheese, caramel & roselle syrup, sliced for nibbling, with berries & vanilla ice cream. RM13.90.

And for the young at heart, try the Baby French Toast (RM13), with tiny twists that tantalise, crusted with cornflakes & flavoured with cream cheese & strawberry jam. There's still more on the menu, from chai tea-tinged creme brulee (RM6) to affogatos with a peanut butter cookie base & chocolate raspberry sauce (RM10).

Quartet proves to be a maestro of milkshakes - no fewer than eight creamy varieties with nicely balanced flavours are currently available, from the top-rated vanilla milkshake with crunchy roasted peanuts & coffee bean bits to a green tea milkshake with almond tuille to a chocolate milkshake with forest berries, each costing RM16-RM17.

  3. It looks like the perfect place for a lovely breakfast, Sean....mmmm. Eggs, asparagus...I am getting hungry looking at all your photos, but fortunately for myself I had a good breakfast this morning. I made myself a McMuffin a la Linda. LOL! I lightly toasted an English muffin, cooked an egg, put a few slices of sharp cheddar and tomato on the English muffin. It was delicious. :)
