This cafe is located off the main busy square of SS2. Five minutes away, there exist a more quieter yet equally as popular row of shops. To put it into context, the specific row referred to is also home to the popular Kayu Nasi Kandar and Chilly Pan Mee. Almost all restaurants here has been around for a long time and you’d be able to tell from the looks of it. So imagine my surprise when I discovered Bandit. As per the heading, Bandit is the latest addition here. It also stands in stark contrast to its surrounding. Why? Bandit was new and modern while the rest of the eateries were mostly old and dated, ol’ school.
Otak-otak Scrambler, RM 26
On the top, there were 5,6 strips of otak-otak, served on a bed of soft scrambled egg and cheese. All these items, together with some leafy greens are stuffed into a croissant and served on a plate.
Tastewise, it was a lot better than expected. At first glance, it may seem like the few strips of otak-otak was barely enough but it was. Given a choice, I would have liked to have more of it but what I was served was enough. It tasted delicious, well seasoned and possesed the distinct taste of otak-otak. Do not let its size fool you. A croissant with some scrambled eggs and strips of otak-otak may not seem heavy but it sure was filling.
Five My Way, RM 28
Five My Way gives you the freedom to make your own version of a Big Brekkie. From the 11 options available, you can pick 5 items out of that to make up your plate. In my case, I opted for plain omelette, chicken bratwurst, red bean, hash brown and bread. The bread used is called Shokupan, which is a Japanese milk bread. It supposed is soft, fluffy and has a mochi-like texture but I suppose once toasted, it resembles any regular white bread. That was what it tasted like to me. A hard and solid toast bread. The red beans was not straight out of a can. Together with some chickpeas and gravy made a good combination to eat with the omelette and sausage. The chicken sausages had a nice flavor to it. Mushroom were good too, large chewy pieces that I enjoyed.
