Yellow Brick Road

When people first hear yellow brick road, we think literally 'yellow brick road', an address or a yellow brick road.  But guess what, it's not but instead it's a cafe located in Damansara Heights. A friend of mine recommended that we should try the food there as it was pretty famous. So, I went there after work for dinner with a couple for friends a month ago and totally enjoyed with food there. So an overview of our meal before starting, here's a photo of it. :) 

It's seem more like a place to have brunch but I was there for dinner. I can't remember the last time I did brunch but it felt like forever. This cafe reminds me so much of brunching in Melbourne and yes, it gives you that Melbourne brunching feel. I like how the cafe is decorated and is totally the kind of place where you would spend time catching up, chit-chatting and hanging out with your friends. 

The first thing I saw on the menu was sweet potato fries in "The Big Breakfast Bash". I didn't see it in the side orders but I had to just order it and I got it! There's this saying 'If you ask, you get. You don't get, you won't get'. So there it is, MY SWEET POTATO FRIES... 

The other four dishes came after. The special thing about this cafe is the pancakes are not just desserts but main dishes as well. All the food was pretty good and I have to say, the pancake menus were really creative. It was just the typical pancakes dessert but they made them into main dishes pancakes with takoyaki called the "Lucky Takoyaki" or even "Lets Salsa" serve with pancakes, turkey ham and mozzarella cheese. 

Here's "The Impasta", Aglio Olio Pasta served with in-house Chicken Char Siu slices, tossed tasty marinated soy beans.  (RM22)
I like how the pasta wasn't over cook and just right, just perfect with the char siu slices. The combination of both totally did the job and we clean up the plate soon enough.

Balik Kampung, Percik Chicken with Tumeric Rice served with a zesty Mango Kerabu Salad, topped with a Poached Egg (RM23)

If you notice, they have really creative names for the dishes as well. This dish is really Malaysian-Western fusion kind of dish where they mix Mango Kerabu Salad with Poached Egg. A malaysian and australian bunch kind of fusion. Love the tumeric rice and the percik chicken was flavourful as well.
Apom Terbalik, Crushed Nuts, Sweet Corn, Hawaiian Coconut, Gula Melaka with Coconut Candy Ice Cream (RM22)

Another fusion pancake of our Malaysian Apom flavour and trust me, the taste was on point. It taste what Apom should taste like. This was our dessert of the night. Love the ice cream, the hawaiian coconut and the pancake was the way a pancake should be. Its not overwhelm by the whole Apom flavour and it wasn't even soggy.

Mushroom Pancakes, with variety kind of mushroom topped with mushroom sauce. (RM22)

Simple pancake dish but it did not taste boring at all. It blend really well with the pancakes. When you first hear pancakes and mushroom, you'll be like 'whutttt? would it taste good' but yes this wasn't bad at all. But then again, when it comes to pancakes, i might be really bias.

Overall, I really like the food in Yellow Brick Road and would really come back to try all the other dishes on the menu. I have a thing for cafe with creative dish name as it really gets you excited of what the dish would come out as. 

The price would seem pricy for pancakes but, then again, good food always come with a price.
