Food Review: J&D Espresso

Pin It

This is another case of not seeing what's right in front of you.  Good thing it's not too late. 

Much like the case of Gino's, still one of our favourite family friendly Italian eatery, we always drive past J&D countless times on our way home.  It is tucked away at the far flung corner of BU12, right at the junction turnoff towards Mutiara Tropicana, within the small business centre called Oasis BU11. 

J&D is one of the handful of cafes that offer porky fares.  So, after more than one year of driving-by-and-thinking-we-should-check-it-out-some-day, that some day finally happened last week, on one of my lunch dates with hubby.   

There's different seating options - bar stools by the French windows; metal chairs and cushion seats; and platform seating with handy plugpoints nearby.  Clever design.

They have all-day breakfast items; I could never resist a big breakfast set.  Aussie brekky set. RM29.

Food pictures must be extra large right?

Crispy pork bacon, perfectly done sunny side ups - yolk-porn worthy, on sour dough bread.  A fat piece of gourmet herb garlic pork sausage, with skin that give way with a pop when you bite into it.  Now how long have you NOT have a sausage like that? 

A rare inclusion - creamy cheesy potato croquette.  Addiction is made of these.  Warm and crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside. 

Definitely one of the best big brekky set I've had for a very long time.  I really couldn't find any fault with this even if I were to nitpick.  Beats many of those over-rated brunch cafes by miles.  Just writing this now makes me crave for it....gah!!!

Hubby ordered the Gourmet Pork Burger, RM21.  

Again, a faultless platter of burger, herb and paprika fries with salsa dip, and side salad.  The burger comprised of a juicy thick pork patty, melted cheese and crispy slices of bacon.  A REAL burger.  The fries?  Hubby polished it off faster than you can say What about me?!

For dessert, we had the Chocolate Molten Lava cake with vanilla icecream, RM13.  No complaints here.  Good quality icecream paired with a warm chocolate pudding with that ozzing centre.

Overall, I'd highly recommend this place for those seeking some darn good porky fare.  Even though prices are on the high side - our three item lunch cost RM74 including taxes; the quality and consistency is obvious.  I can't wait to come back and try other items.  Business is not exactly roaring though, I'd say it's due to the out-of-the-way location and prices; do drop by if you are hankering for some quality fare; this is one place I'd hate to see going out of business.
