Alkaff Mansion

Previously a residence and now a restaurant!

Alkaff Mansion seems to be a great place for dinner, parties, D&D and such at night, though it may portray a slightly different ambiance during the day. I went to Alkaff Mansion for brunch on one fine sunny weekend, and no amount of fan can stop me perspiring!

Having two "grand" entrances, you can either choose to enter from this uncovered stairway, acting like you just arrive home, or the covered pathway leading you to the red carpet!

Having both indoor and outdoor brunch, we chose the outdoor brunch as it is cheaper than dining indoors, which costs around $88 (if I heard correctly) for Alkaff Mansion's brunch buffet.

Alkaff Mansion have 3 sections in total, The Restaurant, The Terrace, and The Bar. Of course, for more al fresco dining experience, The Terrace would be the only choice! You may also view the rest of the menus here.

Juice: Fresh Green Apple Juice ($8.00) and Fresh Orange Juice ($8.00).

Breakfast on the Terrace: Sausage with eggs, mixed salad, zucchini & eggplant fries ($15.00). I love the sausages, and the two "cubic" toasts, but scrambled eggs simply made my anticipation dived!

I love how my scrambled eggs still served to me in a piece, like how McDonald's served their Big Breakfast. Alkaff Mansion's scrambled eggs, is as real as its name. So scrambled, that you don't need to slice it at all.

On the other hand, the fries is unique to me. But it might not be a fanciful item in the dish if you don't eat either of it.

Breakfast on the Terrace: Smoked Salmon with eggs, zucchini souffle and mixed salad ($15.00).

What interests me is the zucchini souffle! It tasted like mixture of zucchini and potato, being mashed and sent for baking. Soft and mushy :) Would also like to compliment about their Sunny sides, which is pretty well done too! Runny yolk among the white, which ooze out upon a cut on it.

Breakfast on the Terrace: Waffle with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, wild berries sauce, and whipped cream ($10.00). Having a scoop of icy cold ice cream on a sunny day is so awesome, but not to say the same for the waffle. Not forgetting the inclusion of "Trio Berres", cranberry, strawberry, and blueberry :)

Alkaff Mansion's waffle look fantastic in presentation, but just a mere touch of the knife on the waffle, I felt a tinge of disappointment set in. Waffle is too soft and "airy". Lacking of crispiness, I can only depend on the vanilla cream dripped with the sweet berries sauce to make up for it..
