Looking for a place to have breakfast on a sunny Sunday? Now, if I say that there’s a place in PJ, air-conditioned, complete with wifi and serves local and western breakfasts with unbelievably reasonable price, would you believe me?
If I were you, I might say “No way”. That was my reaction when Daniel told me that Tappers Café at Jaya One has one of the cheapest pricing on its food menu last month. In order to prove that he’s correct, he dragged me there one sunny Sunday morning early this month.
The ambiance was simple – wooden floors, white walls, white marble tables and white rattan chairs with small black & white photo frames and antique-designed lamps adorned the walls. There were a few tables occupied when we walked in but the place was almost full by the time we left. Take a quick peek in the menu and your jaw will literally drop. Why? Because of the price lor. Where can you get Mushroom Omelette at RM 3 or two Fried Egg Toast at RM 1.50 in an air-conditioned environment? But do keep in mind though, that their portions aren’t big.
While I settled with an American Breakfast set at RM 7.90 that came along with a cup of hot coffee, Daniel went for English Breakfast set, also RM 7.90 with a cup of hot tea. Kim Siong, who doesn’t eat meat, had the Mushroom Omelette (RM 3, scrambled eggs with mushrooms), two Fried Egg Toast (RM 1.50) and Hot Honey Lemon (RM 2.80). Instead of normal toasts, I got two pieces of nicely done pancake (very fluffy and fragrant!) with maple syrup and butter, a fried egg, bacon and sausage (how wrong can it go with these stuff by the way?). Total damage for the three of us came to RM 22.30, no service charge or government tax.
The food were undeniably not bad, however the same thing cannot be said to their service. We waited quite a while, about 30 minutes for our first order to arrive. And when Daniel enquire the waitress, she replied in a rather impolite way (from her accent, we thinks she’s not a local). But I will sure be back again, considering the cheap price tags.
