Brekkie @Antipodean

So the other day I bugged my bro to bring me out to this relatively new coffee hide-out in Bangsar known as Antipodean. I've heard that their coffee is good, and that their breakfast is the I guess it was high time for me to go check it out myself!

#This is how it looks like from the outside - in rather minimalist black-coloured design.

My bro, being an extremely busy (and dedicated) medic student, usually has not much time to spare for himself, let alone his that morning, he was kind enough to bring his sista out for brekkie :) And me? I was extremely grateful and elated of course.:D

#I'm not quite a morning person so please forgive that disheveled hair. For breakfast, i wore a simple tank and denim shorts and simply grabbed my turquoise blazer (which is from blogshop ) Its one of my faves cuz its really lightweight and needless to say,turquoise is my all-time fav shade :)

Upon entering the cafe, we were greeted by huge boards with chalk-written menu all over it. Apparently, this concept is similar to those in Melbourne and NYC where some cafes adopt this retro style. Not sure about you but i personally find it intriguing...sorta like a different concept altogether especially since we don't really have a lot of quaint cafes around in KL. Though you've gotta stand there for quite a bit while scanning through the long list of menu and it might strain your neck a lil'...LOL..but i love unconventional stuffs so no complaints. :)

Tip: I know this may be a no brainer, but in order to make people who were sitting next to the wall feel less uncomfortable..since a bunch of people were standing there looking intently at the menu and it might be a lil' awkward..i decided to take pics of the menu so that i can slowly browse thru it while being comfortably seated down :) haha

                                                                #Drinks menu

#Food menu. Only a portion of it. At the far right,there's another segment of the menu for 'After 11am'.

#Patiently waiting for our breakfast to arrive.:)

Oh...and my coffee arrived first.:) Love that mischevious coffee art...:P

#Flat white. It's pretty okay but i wouldn't say reaaaally good. But above average compared to coffees elsewhere.:)

 #BIG BREAKFAST. If you're here, you've gotta try their best-selling dish right?And this is it. It was goooood. Especially loved the sauteed mushrooms and mash browns. :) you can choose between the bacon or sausage. Either way. I've yet to try the sausage though :)

# What my bro ordered : Pumpkin with sweet cornfritters. It's a healthy option for health freaks like my bro. But according to him, it tasted pretty mediocre. I tried a lil' and it tasted rather bland but if you're trying to keep away from sodium and sweet stuffs then this might be a good choice afterall :)

#Watermelon juice. Their juices are all fresh ones.

#Erms please pardon my engrossed, nom-noming face.It was a candid shot and i had no idea.hahaha.

Overall, it was a really good nom nom experience. We went during the weekdays so it wasn't that crowded although Antipodean definitely had a steady crowd throughout the day. I went with Cootie again just last Saturday and believe me when i say it was superbly crowded!! You might even have to wait to be seated.

 #The place. 

#Couple of empty seats but was slowly being filled up... If you fancy having a cuppa good coffee and a good book, this is a great spot :)


The following pics were taken when i brought Cootie to Antipodean in the same week after discovering it! So basically I went there TWICE in a week. And mind you, it ain't near to where I'm staying. Such is the sacrifice for good stuff. hahaha.
But well, Cootie has yet to try out this place so being the adventurous me, I thought it'd be a good spot to satisfy his picky style of food selection.;)

#Iced mocchacino

# He ordered Soda + Coffee...which was a lil' odd if you'd ask me. But it's something different.:D

OK, summing up after my 2 visits to Antipodean....
Food: 8.5/10
Ambience : 8/10 (can be noisy and crowded during weekends especially)
Service: 8.5 (a bunch of rather helpful staffs)

#Lighting wasn't really good cuz my back was against the sun. This was the best we could do with Cootie's 4S since i didn't bring my camera out that day. (btw I think my arms look slightly toned in this pic? does it mean my exercise regime is working? YAY? LOL)

Oh yea, and I'm just really curious, how come my iphone 4S can produce DIFFERENT QUALITY photos as compared to Cootie's 4S? His is new but mine is only like..what..5months old?? >< But when we took this exact same pic with my phone, the colour turned out really gloomy. Someone who's good with techy stuffs clue me in please.....
