Though Alycia still has 2 more papers to sit for tomorrow, I nevertheless wanted her to enjoy her weekend after a stressful week-long of exam. We all woke up early and spent over an hour sweating it out at the park while getting our neglected dose of Vitamin D from the glorious morning sun. After an energy zapping session at the park, we headed over to Ficelle Boulangerie And Pattisserie but gosh, the cafe was packed to the brim, so no thanks, we ain’t going to join in the crazy queue. Alycia suggested Antipodean Cafe @ Bangsar as she loves the banana pancakes at this newly opened Aussie cafe. Daddy was beaming to hear her suggestion as he had wanted to bring us to Antipodean since last week but I said no because it was the eve of the girls’ exam.
Smiley and sweaty girls on the way to Antipodean …
I must say that between La Bodega and Antipodean, my hubs and I prefer Antipodean. It is also evidenced that patrons are more gravitated towards this cafe, though La Bodega is situated just next to Antipodean. The waiters and waitresses were friendly and the gwai lo boss himself would be there to attend to customers. Securing a table at peak periods can be a difficult matter, but unquestionably worth a wait. Today we were very lucky as the boss attended to us personally and we got a table within 5 minutes. Though the cafe is packed today (we were there at around 10:30am), waiting time before food is served was amazingly short. Needless to say, breakfast is bang-up. My hubs and I would get really excited checking out the outstanding array of menu written on the blackboard each time we are there. We love their coffee too. They serve Merdeka Coffee, which is a boutique coffee lable that sources beans from various parts of Indonesia. Today we bought a packet of Merdeka coffee beans from Antipodean for my mil who is a gourmet coffee lover.
Not going to post individual pictures of the food that we ate today as I had posted them not too long ago.
The Appogoto @ RM10 (ice cream with rich coffee) was something that we ordered today, for the first time, besides a butter-free chocolate cake (not in pic and tasted mediocre only. I still find that cakes made with butter are tastier, albeit more fattening). Coffee fanatics would love this and there are no doubts that all my 3 girls are coffee lovers as they polished off this cup of decadent caffeine even before I could help myself to a second spoon! I was busy positioning the cup of Appogoto to get a perfect snap shot and after getting a few jittery shots (with their hands attacking the cup and me swatting their hands), the cup of dessert was gone by the time I was done!
