Antipodean Cafe @ Bangsar, KL

Antipodean Cafe @ Bangsar, KL

Woke up late on Saturday morning is a normal practice. So I decided to bring my two VIP friends form Singapore to find late breakfast in town. Antipodean Cafe which located nearby Bangsar Village is famous with their All Day Breakfast. I decided to give it a try. Reached there after lunch hour, but surprisingly it was still crowded. 

Antipodean is a Kiwi/Australian style of cafe serving the best quality coffee (Flatwhites, Picolo's, shortblacks) and food to the hungry and thirsty expatriates of Jakarta. They roast, bake and cook everything we sell!

Antipodean - pronounced "an·tip·o·de·an" (adj)means (1) coming from or relating to Australia or New Zealand (2) Ancient Greek: anti "opposed" pous "foot" opposite points on the globe
The cafe was still crowded although it was already 3pm in the afternoon. The seating  in outdoor or indoor are equally good. I prefer outdoor seat, enjoy the fresh air and showered by the sunshine, while enjoying a cup of nice coffee.
The interior design of Antipodean Cafe. The sharp red colour reflects the western passionate's culture. The business was too good, renders the shop looks packed. Do you notice that most peoples looking to the right side of the shop? Wonder why are they looking to the right?
The answer: ya, this cafe does not provide a menu in book. All the foods and beverages are display on the board on the wall. So everyone has to refer to the wall to place their order. I know it is creative and environmental friendly by saving trees, but still I found little bit inconvenient. How do you think?
The beverage and dessert bar.
The kids' playground. So parents can fully enjoy their meal here. 
Cappuccino  RM9
A nice coffee is a must when you make a visit to Antipodean Cafe. I am not sure the coffee beans they used, but I am just addicted to the fragrance of it.
Smoked Salmon, roast vegetable & chickpeas salad  RM25
The smoked salmon was good, fresh and not too salty, by squeezing a little bit lemon on it, enhance the flavour. The cheese mixed well with the roast vegetables too. 
All Day Breakfast  RM18
 come with toast, pork sausages, baked beans, scrambled egg, grilled tomato's

The breakfast set is quite ordinary. However, this is the place that you can eat "breakfast" all day long whenever you craving for breakfast. Yeah, even you wake up at 3pm in the afternoon, you still can find your brunch here.  
Grilled Chicken with tomatoes, green beans & balsamic vinegar  RM18
The chicken is well grilled and smooth, goes excellent with the seasoning of balsamic vinegar. This dish is quite suitable for me to keep fit I think, with a big portion of tomatoes and green beans. A very healthy meal indeed.
Morrocan Beef Kabap with Golden Couscous  RM20
The beef kabap is delicious, very flavourful. But I was not really in favour with the golden couscous, the spices is too excessive for me. 
Lemon Merinque Pie
The meal ended with a nice pie from Antipodean. It looks fluffy and it tastes fluffy too, with little fragrance of lemon, wash away the fat accumulated from the heavy meal. 

Overall, Antipodean Cafe left me a quite good impression with their good service. The foods are not so pricey too although it is located at Bangsar. Worth for give it a try. However, parking is a big problem during weekends and peak hours. So be wise in choosing time.
