{Malacca Cafe} Brekkie @ Eat At 18

December 2014 [Saturday]

{Malacca Cafe} Eat AT 18

it’s my second month in workforce and i thought i should reward myself with a hearty brekkie for enduring a 8-6 job and not quitting wtf! *pats self on the back*

i always jot down places i would like to try out in my fauxdori. you know, just in case i have the mood to pop by cafe. Eat At 18 has been on the loooong list for quite some time, i just didn’t have the time to pay a visit. and the idea of venturing into that area on weekend is just daunting.

But mami and i decided to brave through the traffic on a beautiful Saturday morning, beautiful cos my salary just in yesterday ehehehehehe. also, we found a parking lot easily!

Eat At 18 is situated at Jalan Hang Lekiu, a muchy quieter jalan compared to Jonker Walk. why did they chose such hushed end for their establishment?

“it’s less jostling so that our customers get to really enjoy the food and environment…” and i got to snap at my pace without awkward stare from strangers.

the menu is presented in an exercise book with dog ears, handwritten with pencil, so primary. i thought pen is more appropriate as pencil trace tends to fade out over time.

both mami and i don’t take coffee so we settled for Hot Chocolate, naturally. if you’re like us, non-coffee-drinkers, you may opt for tea, though not many options available.

i was intrigued by its presentation, perfect for instagram! instead of being served a ready cuppa hot chocolate, this one requires some labour, you’ll have to stir the truffles into the hot milk and then you’ll get hot chocolate, ingenious or what wtf. the kaoness is just right to our liking!

remember to stir well before sipping as it tends to sediment.

Buttermilk Scones | RM 12.90

almost all of the items are made from scratch, the jams, the cream, the breads.. that’s what i call dedication!

the scones are bulky but not crumbly (they rhyme!). i was accustomed to the round dainty ones which you can nibble gracefully with pinky raised up (not a proper way btw) that i was slightly taken aback when this was served. the portion could easily feed two or more.

slather the apple jam and cream generously, pop it into your mouth and you’ll go hmmmm subconsciously.

i was torn between this and scrambled egg, both priced at RM 18.90 and mami thought bread is more substantial than egg #aunty.

four pieces of fluffy French toast (homemade bread) drizzled with maple were plated with variety of fruits namely banana, strawberry, blueberry and cape gooseberry, served with strawberry jam and cream in a errr poo-alike shape. everything goes well with everything but i wish they dipped the toast in the egg slightly longer as the egg fragrant was to faint for French toast.

    OMG! I love this place! 🙂

    I must make it a point to visit when I go to Melaka – my dear would LOVE the hot chocolate with chocolate truffles.

    I like how every dish looks – the French toast sounds like a winner too.

    They’re so creative, using pencil and an old school exercise book to write the menus in. Vintage!
