Tucked away in the incredibly busy Sunway district, Brotz N.19 Bakery Café is a place where you’ll find good food and great service. One of the Chefs, Vikram, and his crew of friendly staff can be seen with smiles whenever you visit, making this place a welcoming one.
We had the chance to sample some of their top items last month, and to put it simply, we went home satisfied, and our stomachs filled to the brim.
The first to arrive was the Balsamic Wild Mushroom Salad (RM17.90). A mixed salad dish, it comes with Aragula and Romaine Lettuce, with a healthy dose of balsamic dressing, fresh wild mushrooms, feta cheese and pine nuts. The portion was enough for two, and in terms of taste, it was refreshing, but it would have been better with a little bit more lettuce.
Up next was the vegetarian Pesto (RM12 for medium, RM17.50 for XL). Portions wise, the medium is good for one, while the XL easily fills two. Taste wise, it’s very herby, but not overwhelmingly so. It’s well prepared and complements the salad.
We then had the Breaded Chicken with Oat (RM22.90), which comes with broken potatoes buttered mix vegetables dressed in their homemade creamy sauce. This is a must to try! It’s incredibly tasty, and there’s a good amount of spice, for a very flavourful dish indeed.
Then came the Chicken Chop (RM21.90). Ours was grilled, but you can have it deep fried as well. It was a fairly good dish, though the chicken was slightly tough, but you can obviously taste the marinate, which makes up for this.
Another must-try dish would be the Lamb Chop (RM27.90). It’s a grilled slice of lamb shoulder, served with broken potatoes, buttered mix vegetables and a choice of either mint, brown mushroom, or barbeque sauce. While the lamb was very slightly overcooked, it was incredibly flavourful and the meat was highly tender.
Following that, we had the Brotz Trio Mix Platter (RM19.90), which comes with a choice of calamari rings or onion rings, warm cheese nachos and spicy chicken wings. This is definitely a dish if you’re here with friends, or is someone who loves a little variety. We went with calamari, which was fairly fresh; you can’t go wrong with nachos and cheese, while the spicy chicken wings are also good.
Lastly, we had the Tempura Fish n Chips (RM19.90). There’s no need to explain what this dish is about. It was well prepared, with a very crispy skin, though there was a little bit more salt than we would have liked.
For dessert and drinks, we had the superb Tiramisu Pancakes (RM20.00), Beet It (RM11.90), and Caribbean Dream (RM10.90). The pancakes came with the optional mini cup of coffee (RM5), and the bitter and sweet combination of the pancakes really went well together for what simply is an explosion in your mouth, for lack of a better phrase. Both Beet It and Caribbean Dream are fresh juices, with Beet. It comprising of beetroot, apple, lime and carrot; while Caribbean Dream has mango and orange.
Overall, Brotz is a great place for a group of friends, as the atmosphere is warm and cosy, and the food is fairly tasty and affordable. One last thing, if you do visit them, don’t forget to
get a bottle of their signature Palmier Puffs. You’re welcome.
