I admit, there are times when I’m in no mood to worry about breakfast, especially when my (gasp!) three-in-one coffee is already waiting for me at the dining table (courtesy of my ever-loyal yaya, of course).
I keep hearing that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day… yada, yada, yada…” but we shouldn’t eat breakfast for its own sake. Breakfast should be a gastronomic pleasure too. (That way, more people will take eating breakfast to heart!)
After my first attempt to return to running for fitness (or to be more honest, walking around the track just to burn off some calories), I, together with Hubby who is more serious about running than I am, decided to stop over at Pi Breakfast & Pies at the Rockwell Grove in Ugong. For our breakfast – slash – recovery food, we ordered:
- Caramelized Spam (Php265). The classic spamsilog is given a more premium twist. The hefty cubes of spam, tossed in the pan until they achieved a nice caramelization, were accented by garlic fried rice, kimchi, pesto, a five-minute egg, scallions and sesame seeds.
- Queso de Bola Ensaymada (Php55). And I used to think those big red balls of cheese are only good for the Christmas season! The sharp saltiness of the cheese has a nice interplay with the sweetness of the bread. I would prefer it to be a bit puffier and have a smoother texture, though.
- Hot Chocolate (Php85). I’m not sure what I expected but I would have thought that the resto could have added a new twist to this drink to make it special, maybe a drop of peppermint or some chocolate shavings?
All these said, I wouldn’t mind returning to Pi Breakfast & Pies to sample their other All-Day Breakfast Options such as the Eggs Benny (Php275) and the Beef Brisket Corned Beef (Php275).
