Food: Milk and Butter @ Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar

One of the players in the recent resurgence of the Telawi F&B scene, alongside Nosh, Yeast Bistronomy and Bait, was Milk and Butter, a cafe around the corner from Devi's. Milk and Butter serves a range consisting of breakfast/brunch options all the way up till nighttime with some simple dinner offerings. 

One fine day when we just didn't feel like cramping with what feels like the entire world (and their mothers) at Antipodean, we decided to give them a try.

The cafe itself is pretty chill and cozy, with walls in shades of white, black and gray. The area is spacious - we were debating if they had actually taken up two shoplots but we later found out that it had a bigger lot, being at the end of the block. (I suppose the furniture is intentionally mismatched, but I found the retro white chairs with stripey cushioning a tad out of place, but that's just me :p)

My favourite touch - the many whisk lamps! :D

It was a scorching day, so I went for the Vanilla & Cookie Ice-Blended (RM 11), a glass of snow-white ice blended cream and milk. I was expecting chocolate cookies like the usual Oreo cookies and cream blend, but this was interesting as well, akin to butter cookies and ice cream.

Adam went for the Iced Peach Tea (RM 9) and we were pleasantly surprised with it. It was refreshing and perfect for a sunny day, but what set it apart from other flavoured tea was the fruity bits at the bottom and the slivers of peaches.

He had the Premium Assembly (RM 17), an assemblage of chicken chipolata sausage, sunny side up, tomato, French toast, sauteed mushrooms and grilled mash potato. Unfortunately we didn't find this very premium at all. :S

The chipolatas and the slice of ham were small and run-of-the-mill, while the mushrooms were nice, but not the best we've had. I guess the baked mashed potato was an interesting attempt, but felt out of place on this breakfast platter. 

I chose the Turkey & Chicken Ham Crusty Pizza (RM 19) which was four slices of tomato based puff pastry pizza with toppings of turkey & chicken ham, a variety of mushrooms, onions, olives and capsicums.

We felt this was a better order than the Premium Assembly - they were very generous with the chicken and turkey ham (and the olives too - which I had to diligently pick out) and I like how the pizza toppings go with the buttery, flaky puff pastry. Definitely more indulgent than your usual pizza base, but very yummy to have once in awhile!

Though the ambience is quiet and more relaxing than a rushed session at the nearby perpetually-cramped Antipodean, we think Milk and Butter unfortunately loses out on the quality and taste of the food. Prices for mains are reasonable considering its upscale location, but it has some catching up to do if it is to be seen in the same league as the big players on Telawi.
