Nest Eatery @ Bandar Damansara Perdana, Petaling Jaya

This Nest Eatery is a simple cafe that is located at The Place in Bandar Damansara Perdana which has become famous recently for their value Set Lunch's and Breakfast / Tea Sets. As I was in the vicinity today, decided to drop by for tea time snacks.

Nest Eatery at Bandar Damansara Perdana
Having situated at The Place, the signage to this cafe is somewhat hidden and only those from this area or those that visit The Place would come to notice this cafe. Even the poster is somewhat hidden by the tree shrubs. I parked my car and had to take a steep flight of stairs to get to the cafe.

Inside The Cafe

Simple Decoration
When I arrived, the cafe was quite empty. I am not sure if this was due to the Chinese New Year holiday thingy. There was just another table that was occupied. The deco, pretty simple yet nice. I took my seat and then was attended immediately by the owner himself. They run with minimal staff only. Just the owner and two other assistants.

Ala Carte Menu

The Set Lunch and the days offered
I was then handed the Menu. All the items were pretty much Malay style food with a few Chinese dishes available. I also observed and was again recommended to try the buns as they are quite famous here, said the owner. I also enquired about their Breakfast and Tea Sets and then he introduced me another menu card.

Breakfast & Tea Set
I went through the Set Menu and since the bun came recommended, went for the Set 2. I was impressed to note that the price for this set was merely RM 4.90 . Similar sets are sold at some of the kopitiams at RM 10+.

Nice Old Style Coffee
I loved their coffee. Now, for the set you have an option to choose between tea or coffee and I choose coffee. Their coffee was pretty good like that available in the olden Hainanese Shops. Coffee will fetch a rating of 8.5/10 .

Half Boiled Eggs
This used to be my breakfast during my childhood days but since I left home after Form 5 to pursue my studies, I do not remember having this. I guess I missed it very much. Coming back to this cafe, once again this was well done and they surely did not use Grade C eggs. It was definitely Grade B eggs.

Soft Bun with Kaya & Butter
This was good but not as good as those Hainanese Buns. It was soft and the spread was lavish. However there was just something that slacked. Nevertheless, it was still good and I would rate this 8/10 . Just to mention that they also have the steamed version too.

On the whole, their Breakfast and Tea Sets are surely worth for money. Though I did not order any of their main dishes like noodles, I did see it being served to the other table and it looked and smelled good. This is not conclusive on its own and looks can be deceiving. What I am sure of is that their buns and coffee are definitely worth trying.
