The first time I tried BreadFruits was quite a spur of the moment and was admittedly shocked by what I got. Considering that the price was rather affordable and portions were large, it was definitely a pleasant surprise to find that my meal left me incredibly satisfied. Which is rather rare these days as restaurants are popping up like daisies.So when my friends and I got together over the weeked, we decided to have another meal at at Breadfruits, Sri Hartamas, because I was very happy with my f
So when my friends and I got together over the weeked, we decided to have another meal at at Breadfruits, Sri Hartamas, because I was very happy with my first dining experience. Plus I was definitely looking forward to try the rest of their extensive dinner menu - which I learned was a new addition to the place.
As always, the first thing that you are hit with when you enter the restaurant is the strong scent of freshly squeezed juice. Slightly green and citrusy but soothing in a sense. The staff readily greet you and thankfully for my second visit, the service was as good as the first. None of the servers looked like they would rather be anywhere else but at work nor were they slow.
We wasted little to no time in ordering three different entree and tried a little of each other's food. Once again I was pleased by what we got.
However I was disappointed as the chicken was underseasoned although incredibly fragrant from the marinating and also the pesto. The guacamole lacked any form of citrus or salt which just made it difficult to swallow regardless of how much I love avocadoes.
Perhaps it was a bad day for the kitchen. I am willing to give them a benefit of a doubt that their food can be this bland.
They used prawn stock to cook the rice so every mouthful is flavoursome and also perfectly al dente. They were not stingy with the seafood either which made the dish worthwhile for the price of Rm24.80.
This was the highlight of the night in my opinion.
They were not stingy with the lettuce or tomatoes. The chicken was flavourful with the marinate that it has been sitting in and grilled to perfection, still juicy despite being incredibly lean. Although I am not sure if the dressing was homemade or jarred - I still think that it is very very yummy.
All in all, BreadFruits is a nice place to go to for a casual dinner because the interior is nothing fanciful or anything luxurious. But the food is definitely the highlight and the fact that it won't burn a hole in your wallet is also great.
Will definitely be back again!
Other Info. : Try their fruit juice! Although a little pricey for certain fruits, it's very good and not diluted at all like you would get in some restaurants.(The above review is the personal opinion of a user which does not represent OpenRice's point of view.)
