After a rather negative first experience I had eating at Nutmeg, I was a little hesitant to return. However a friend assured me that things would improve as they give this place quite a good review. So reluctantly I went back with a rather low expectation so at least I won't be too disappointed if things were to turn out as it did before.
Perhaps because it was not lunch time so there were not too many patrons eating there. We got a table relatively quick and our waiter was more attentive this time, giving us a menu each almost instantly. I knew then to not order their baked eggs even though I wanted to have some nice runny egg yolk.
Instead my friend recommended the Chicken & Waffles. Which neither are really my ideal brunch or lunch order. But with good faith I ordered it anyway and it is safe to say that my impression of Nutmeg has changed after having this dish.
Sitting on top of a really nice light waffle is a slice of cheese, perfectly fried chicken with some corn strewn over it and then a beautifully poached egg. Also there's a little drizzle of maple syrup to keep it in it's 'southern' style. This dish I really liked because the flavour of everything just goes so well together.
And having the richness of the yolk from the poached egg drizzling all over the crisp waffle & chicken was just heaven in a bite. So this dish has become my number one dish to order when I do visit Nutmeg and now, I no longer feel a slight disdain for the place.
In fact I think I will go there almost every time I'm at Bangsar Village. Just for this dish.
