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.
