Uptown, known for me as a place to come to for Village Park, and nothing else, as it is worth the effort of finding parking space (with is a major challenge here). Many new stores mushroomed here, despite the traffic congestion because of its wealth in flow of people traffic from nearby offices and housing areas, and soon-to-be condominiums.
This time, my venture here was not for the usual VP, but to follow my friend’s foodieventure to The Good Batch, a popular hangout spots for cafe goers. It took me a good 15mins or so to find a parking space “phew”.
But we made it! And the place was packed even when it was way past lunch hours. As I worked late the night before, I needed a second dose of caffeine and since I am at ” The Good Batch” I should give their batch of cuppa a try eh?
The beans are roasted from Pulp De Palheta.
I went for my usual: iced long black. Sadly, too sour
This was The Parisian lunch sandwich, 3 slices of white bread holding in grilled ham, herbs and spices, topped with two half cooked sunny side eggs
I guess it can’t go wrong with ham, cheese, eggs all toasted to crunchy perfection! T’was an alright and enjoyable sandwich, though I much preferred the Red Bean Bag’s version. This cost around 20plus ringgit.
The big breakkie, well was really quite normal to me. The scrambled eggs were a wee tad, lack in flavour. As for the rest, mushrooms, sausages and potato cubes were also average. The baked beans portion was really quite small too. For me a big breakkie dish must leave the patron with the one key word, scrumptious. But that, I didn’t get, for this big breakkie. Cost about RM30, darnz.
Nonetheless, throughout my two hours time here, the place was packed and empty tables were constantly refilled with new patrons walking in. In terms of ambience and comfort of a place to eat and catch up, thumbs up. However, if I have to focus on quality of food and coffee alone, I think there is some room for improvement, but hey, that’s just my two cents thoughts.
