F.R. Copper, interesting name, ey? It sure did pique my interest as soon as I saw a write-up on it online. With a fancy name like that, I was curious enough that I decided to have brunch here, today.
First impression? I liked it, I liked how it looked, the ambiance, the overall feel. It was elegant? White all over with copper lights – hmm? is that what the “Copper” in “F.R Copper” stands for? Hmm… Anyways, it is a relatively small cafe, during peak hours, it might get crowded. So was the case when I arrived here but hey, the good thing about crowd is that they sort of act as an indicator on whether an eatery is good or not, especially so in the case of this cafe. When there are plenty of cafes left, right and center, the fact that you are still able to be a crowd favorite – speaks volume, dont you think?
So…. was it good?
Yesss ! My overall experience here was awesome. The customer service was good, they were friendly and attentive. I like the cafe ambiance and feel and the food was delicious. I wouldn’t mind dropping by again to give the other items a try.
Smoked Salmon Sandwich, 22 ringgit
Fish & Chips, 22 ringgit
The food served here was delicious, at least the ones I’ve tasted so far. Both dishes came with fries but the fries here are unique or rather – comes with a twist. They seem to have shredded the potato to tiny, thin stripes and then fry it. This would give it a continuous feel of crunch. I must say, when it first arrived on my table, I was all “where are my fries, yaww???.” After tasting it though, I enjoyed it. It sure was an interesting twist.
The Fish and Chips overall was a tasty dish. It consisted of two fish fillets served on a bed of peas. The fish fillet was crispy on the outside, warm and moist on the inside with a buttery feel to it. The bed of peas was basically a mix of pea puree and solids which provided a rather appealing texture to the dish as a whole. A lovely dish.
The Smoked Salmon Sandwich was a perfect dish for brunch. It was filling but not overwhelmingly so, just enough to keep you full for a few hours until your next meal. Not only does the sandwich comes with a strip of salmon, it is also topped with a poached egg. Imagine cutting into that egg and the yolk oozes out onto the salmon and bread …makes it all gooey and wet. I loved it. That wetness acted like a sauce? sort of the glue that held the tasty smoked salmon and the bread together. I’d give this dish a go again.
Burnt Cheesecake, 15 ringgit
By the time I was done indulging in the sandwich, I was almost full. Good thing I had some space left to give this cheesecake a go because it sure was good. I am a fan of cheesecake, especially when the inside is thick yet light and fluffy, which was the case here. It also was not layered with cream and frostings that at times, tends to downplay the actually taste of the cake by adding unnecessary flavors and sweetness.
The cream that accompanied the cake was light and airy, it provided the cake with just the right amount of sweet and cream. In no way did the cream overpower the cake, the taste of cheese was evident from the first to the last mouth. I had a blast with this dessert.
Would I head back here?
Yes, I would. As I mentioned above, I’d love to return here to give the other dishes offered here a try.
