I have to admit I was pretty bummed when they closed the shops around Hock Lee. I grew up enjoying the only hawker food around my area. So when they shut down not one but both the coffee shops at Jalan Batai, I was quite upset. But I guess Yellow Brick Road kind of makes up for it.
Of course, its name is a reference to The Wizard of Oz. So is the Wicked Pancake Parlour, located upstairs from it. (About to watch Wicked in New York soon!!!)
Coffee and cakes? Yes, please!
Priced reasonably at below RM15...
...served in cute little mason jars atop beautiful tiles that look like they're hand painted.
Want something heavier to eat? The Cheesy Mr Mac (RM22) may look small but the truffle oil infused pasta packs a full punch and will fill you up quickly. And if it is anything better than truffle fries... It's truffle Mac and cheese.
Otherwise, indulge in an omelette with prawns and sambal (RM25) if you can't decide between a western or Asian brunch dish.
Update: More dishes.
Got to try the glorious posh fries (RM16). Generous truffle shavings and good portion for 3 to share.
A wonderfully big breakfast (RM30) for the hearty eater.
Tried the baked eggs (RM25) with naan. Love the chilli con carne. A little peppery but very tasty!
And this... The star of the meal - Nutella crepe cake (RM12). Not too sweet and perfect texture!
