Three Little Pigs and The Big Bad Wolf

Sounds like a fairy tale. The name is just too long. I have to use the acronym - TLPATBBW. How does that relate to food? Restaurants give themselves fanciful names nowadays to attract attention. What will they think of next?

TLPATBBW is located on the ground floor of the Tropicana City Mall in SS2, Petaling Jaya. They apparently have another branch in Bangsar - exactly where, I have no idea. Crystal brought us here one weekend morning. She said this place was known for its awesome brekkies.

It was pretty quiet when we got there. It wasn't too early, but there was no breakfast crowd.

Service was prompt. A bottle of water was on our table before our seats were warm.

The menu was somewhat limited. I think this place specialises in breakfasts. Their choices of brekkies were many and varied. Beside them, they offer a variety of pastas, some sandwiches and a very limited Asian selection. Looking at the morning crowd, I wondered how they survive serving mainly breakfasts.

We started with our morning beverages. Crystal has been very health conscious these days. She had a pot of sugarless plain earl grey.

I asked for my usual long black. I think I got a small cup of strong expresso instead.

My wife's choice was her favourite latte.

Soon our brekkies began to arrive. This was the pork bacon and scrambled egg croissant. It was served with some salad. The bacon was crispy and and well done. The egg looked moist and appetising. The combination was basic but delightfully delicious.

Healthy Crystal had this salmon scrambled egg with toast. Again, the egg looked very nicely done. I actually have never tried salmon in egg of any kind. Looked delicious. Gave me an idea. Perhaps I should try preparing salmon omelet one day.

My option was this "I'm so hungry I could eat a wolf". In places with no such fanciful name, it would probably be known as the big breakfast. On my plate was a pork sausage, pork bacon, 2 eggs (I opted for scrambled), a nice crispy hashbrown, sautéed mushrooms, grilled tomato, baked beans and a couple of toasts with butter. It was a wholesome large breakfast. Everything on the plate was nicely done. I could not find any reason to complain.

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This certainly lasted me the whole day until dinner. It was breakfasts in the superlatives. We definitely cannot afford to eat like this too often. We would risk the hazard of turning into, not little, but three big pigs.
