Addict Food and Coffee

This is my first weekend back in Malaysia and whilst I am really enjoying the local food, a huge part of me is missing the other home that is Melbourne. I miss The Boyfriend and I miss the food scene in Melbourne, especially a good brekkie.

I have yet to try any western breakfast/brunch options here in KL but I've been told by many that they're not as good as the ones in Melbourne. Thankfully before I left, I filled up my brunch quota as much as I could.

One of the many Melbourne brunch places that I managed to cross off my to-eat-list before returning to KL is Addict Food and Coffee. It was a Thursday morning, both Daisy and I headed down to Fitzroy to catch up with Singaporean foodie, Michelle Li who happened to be in town.

All three of us had a drink each; whilst the other girls opted for coffee, I went for the Mork hot chocolate with almond milk. I love the beautiful mug that the hot chocolate was served in.

We decided to order 3 dishes to share amongst the three of us. Daisy opted for the eggs benedict with ham hock and tarragon hollandaise. The eggs were poached to perfection, and I really enjoyed the ham hock; so tender and flavourful!

The other Michelle being a lover of sweets, selected the wholemeal buttermilk pancakes. I love how pretty this dish looked, and may I add, the fluffy pancakes paired with raspberry, poached pear and mascarpone tasted just as scrumptious too!

And finally, this was my pick. Just how yolkpornlicious does this look? ;) Mushroom duxelles, topped with a crisp potato hash, a juicy roasted field mushroom, caramelised onion and a poached egg.

I loved the contrasting texture of the fleshy mushroom and the crisp yet soft in the inside potato hash. The flavours were very well executed, with the sweetness of the caramelised onion cutting through the savoury duxelles.

I was really pleased with our meal, and I'm sure both the girls were satisfied too. All three dishes were really well executed and delicious, but if I had to choose a favourite, I'd go for the eggs benedict.

Service was also great; despite the slight wait for the food to arrive, the waitstaff were all very friendly and attentive.

The cafe was packed and buzzing with lots of locals enjoying their food and coffee; and I can see why. I could not fault Addict Food at all and definitely wouldn't mind returning again.

I guess that explains the queue for a table. My advice would be to get in early with a smaller group as most tables are set for two. :)
