It has been a long time that Danny and I didn’t have any big breakfast. Hence, during the first Sunday of 2016, we eventually satisfied our cravings at Jekyll & Hyde, Empire Damansara. You might come across this name on my blog before because I have been reviewing about its delicious pork rib! If you didn’t check out here.
As mentioned in the previous review, Jekyll & Hyde is a British pub and also a classy dining restaurant.
Both of us are truly in love with the European-themed ambiance here. It is a great place to enjoy our long-lasted brunch dating! Now, let’s check out the brunch we had!
Hyde’s All Day Fry-Up: Two slices of streaky bacon, two pieces of spicy Russian Kolbasas (sausage), saute mushrooms, grilled tomato, baked beans and sous vide poached eggs served with two toasted sourdough rye slices and truffled butter. Hyde’s breakfast is actually American Breakfast. Believe it or not, the sausages were quite spicy. Meanwhile, the truffled butter was easily spread on the bread, it was sweet-smelting, and of course, delightful.

Dr. Jekyll’s Breakfast: Two slices of Gamon Ham, two pieces of breakfast bangers, saute mushrooms, grilled tomato, truffled butter scramble eggs, topper with rocket and bacon rosti, served with two toasted sourdough rye slices and butter. Dr. Jekyll’s breakfast is Bristish breakfast. I personally preferred this more than Hyde’s. Perhaps, it was because of the spicy Russian Kolbasas. Having said that, I preferred the truffled butter than the normall butter served on Dr. Jekyll’s breakfast.

If you are having a dilemma like I did, you are recommended to Build Your Own. Jekyll & Hyde offers build your own brunch platter, with a base of toasted sourdough rye slices, butter and eggs with the way you like! This basic platter starts from RM15 only, you can top-up sausages, meats and condiments with extra pay.

Mr. Poole’s Avocado Triplets: Smashed avocado with mascarpone cheese, smoked salmon, streaky bacon and sous vide poached eggs with toast. It was an appealing brunch; however, Jekyll & Hyde added lime while smashing the avocado. As a result, the smashed avocado tasted like lime more than the original light avocado.

Utterson’s Benedict: Smoked salmon, rocket and sous vide poached eggs on toast with classic hollandaise. A must-try for diner who loves egg benedict. The salmon was fresh.

Eggs Pax Britannica: Sous vide poached eggs on potato rosti with streaky bacon, cherry tomatoes and parmesan cheese. It is recommended to those who love hashbrown. The potato rosti was homemade by Jekyll & Hyde, it is the most delicious one both of us have had so far! However, compared to the previous dishes, the bacon was slight saltier. Perhaps, the kitchen accidentally added more condiment.

Not forget to mention, the brunch mentioned includes two drinks: your choice of juice and coffee or tea. At the first place, you might think the price was slightly higher; however, when it comes with two drinks, it is totally worthy to grab these dishes at Jekyll & Hyde.
Note: Brunch is only available on weekends, from 11am to 3pm.
