Food For Thought 177 – The Red Beanbag

The girls and I went for brunch last month at The Red Beanbag at Solaris Dutamas (the quirky mall that is still very confusing to many but has became my new favourite hangout spot). This Australian inspired cafe/restaurant is one of the most hype about brunch place in KL lately so we decided to give it a try. It was a busy Saturday afternoon at 1pm as the restaurant was filled with hungry people like us. All my friends got lost finding this place and took them a while to arrive but we were happy to see our food being served swiftly without much delay. I ordered the beef burger while the girls had trouty mouth (fresh pieces of smoked salmon on top of avocado), baked eggs (combination of eggs, lamb bratwurst, cheese, potatoes and sundried tomatoes, served in a baking dish), mushroom soup and Tiramisu to share as dessert. The beef burger was alright for me, the home made meat patty could be more flavourful but I loved the beef bacon and the fried egg that came together with it (always love a burger with egg yolk dripping out from it). The Ice Mocha Chocolate Ya Ya (what a cute name) was too much chocolate without much mocha taste to it. All their coffee are being brought over from Australia apparently but I’ll never be a coffee lover so I couldn’t tell the difference. I did find the Tiramisu quite yummy as I always like the firmer type instead of mushy type (some might not agree with me though). 
Overall, the ambiance of the restaurant was definitely cozy and great for girls’ brunch gossip session, service was good and attentive too. Food wise was pretty decent value for the price (for now there was no service tax nor government tax), so hopefully it will continue to improve from here on.

  1. Latte is very expensive at RM8 for that small cup. Go try Ristretto at Mont Kiara for their coffee which using same glass but selling at RM5 only. Coffee taste is too strong cause of the size cup. The burnt beans smell too strong for me and my friends.

    Food taste wise was so so only. It is pretty hard to find this place. Food price is expensive with small portion. I will come if someone treat me here only.

  2. Well this place seems to be doing quite well til now… I guess there will always be willing customers who don't mind paying RM8 for a small latte… This place was alright for me but for the similar price I'd go for Plan B in BV (no the Publika's outlet as somehow I find the food in Publika's outlet is not as good)…
    Portion wise I thought it was okay.. Well generally Malaysian we all are paying too much for any western food ;-D
