Review: Frisky Goat at Taman Tun Dr Ismail
It’s been an action-packed weekend for folks in TTDI, where Frisky Goat at Burhanuddin Helmi roared open to brisk business. Its filled with buoyantly friendly people & both places radiate plenty of positive vibes. Frisky Goat’s probably our better bet for now, since it’s serving hot food.
Baked Eggs with Frisky Goat’s Toast
Let’s not save the best for last: Frisky Goat’s baked eggs (RM18.50) seem like the most satisfying ever in Taman Tun …
… perfectly prepared, beautifully balanced in both flavour & texture, mixed with slices of spiced sausage, cherry tomatoes & beef bacon that’s surprisingly tastier than the norm, partnered with Frisky Goat’s own-baked crusty toast. Absolutely adore this.
Belgian Waffles with Poached Eggs
Poached eggs are served with a difference too, atop a fresh-tasting Belgian waffle (waffles are becoming perceptibly trendy in the Klang Valley) & partnered with seared salmon, sauteed mushrooms & an eye-catching, tomato-tinged hollandaise sauce. RM21.
The French toast (RM20) employs a less ordinary recipe as well, expertly executed & convincingly complemented with apple chutney, spiced roasted walnuts, honey, vanilla ice cream (super-smooth) & chantilly cream.
Cakes here are also distinctive: The strawberry-raspberry Red Opera, topped with crimson-coloured almonds, will turn heads.
Love Frisky Goat’s espresso creme brulee, soft & sumptuous.
Frisky Goat’s owners graciously acknowledge that their prowess in coffee-making might not be this neighbourhood’s most impressive, but they still do good work with their Colombian beans.
The outlet will extend its hours through dinnertime soon; expect heartier bistro-style fare including beef bourguignon. Frisky Goat is also a bakery, so head here for pastries galore.
Actually, our only possible complaint about this place is that it’s not big enough; seating can feel cramped & vacant tables will be scarce on weekend afternoons.
