For the regular brunch people, they would most definitely have heard of Nutmeg especially those who frequent around the Bangsar area. So after a little visit to the stores at Bangsar Village, my friends and I popped by Nutmeg for a quick bite as we were hungry midday.
Although it was late in the afternoon, there was a large crowd and the cafe could only sit so many with it's small space. Though they had a few tables placed outside of the quaint little cafe, we still had to wait a good 10 minutes before being able to get a seat.
Plus it took about two minutes for the busy wait-staff to even take notice of us. I guess they were so busy that it got slightly frustrating, but there were times where I swore neither of them wanted to even attend to us despite clearly seeing that we needed service. For a first time visit, it's safe to say that I was disappointed at that point.
Though I kept my hopes up and ordered something that I absolutely adore ordering from brunch/breakfast places. Baked eggs!
I was expecting a lot because many people have said that Nutmeg are very good at cooking their eggs. So I had their baked eggs with mushrooms and a side of toast. It sounded heavenly to me and I couldn't wait to dip my toast in soft coddled eggs.
But my dish took the longest to arrive and by the time it did, I was in a bit of a sour mood. Plus everything that I was hoping for really did not turn out well at all. The egg was hard and completely overcooked, the point where the yolks where borderline powdery so there goes my hope of dipping my bread in it. And the mushroom, spinach and tomatoes filling was scarce. To top it all off, the entire thing was bland and as much as I love baked eggs, I couldn't finish this at all.
Let's just say my first visit with Nutmeg was not a pleasant one. But I am willing to give them a second chance and try other things from their menu to see if I was just unlucky that day.
