The same Saturday Mr. C and I met YC for coffee at Brother Baba Budan, we went to Sambal Kampung for breakfast. We were in the city by half past eight in the morning as our ex-Brisbane Korean housemate, Jay - who was visiting from Queensland before heading back to Korea for good - had booked to join a tour to Great Ocean Road and the meeting point was in the CBD.
After dropping him off, we headed to Sambal Kampung with the hopes of sampling some tasty Malaysian food. Unfortunately, lady luck wasn't with us that morning. Sambal Kampung's kitchen only opens after 11am... or was it 10am. Anyways, at that time, there was (we think Italians) coffee and breakfast perhaps by people who only rent the place in the morning.
As I tried Eggs Benedict the week before at a different shop on Degraves St. and it was good, Mr. C decided to give it a go. In fact, it was cheaper here. We each had a slice of bread/muffin topped with ham and poached egg with splashes of yum creamy Hollandaise sauce (mixture of egg yolk and butter seasoned with some lemon juice, salt and pepper).
Mr. C who was an acknowledged barista (by his company, Freedom and later on Villa and Hut's patrons) was delighted with the lovely tasting coffee. We were disappointed upon learning that there'll be no Malaysian food breakfast but breakfast was still lovely at the end; simple, delicious eggs benedict washed down by beautiful Latte.
Besides that, the eggs benedict here only costs AUD7.50 where else the ones on Degrave St costs a whopping AUD 13-17++ and it's nothing much fancier. Mr. C and I will definitely come back here again for the breakfast or hopefully to try the Malaysian cuisine.
