Epicuro USJ Taipan Subang Brunch Review
When it comes to food, USJ and Subang has plenty to offer. You don’t really need to travel far if you stay in that part of the neighbourhood. Recently, we stumbled upon a café restaurant by the name of Epicuro in USJ Taipan. This is the branch of the main outlet in Damansara Uptown.
The restaurant is located at 2A Jalan USJ 10/1J, Taipan Business Centre and behind this building is the outdoor carpark. If you been to Taipan you do know finding a carpark is horrendous but luckily there is an outdoor car park just behind this restaurant.
We heard many good reviews of this restaurant by our friends and other blogger friends so we went there for a brunch with Mynn Lee (from www.shewalkstheworld.com and former RED FM DJ).
The menu is similar to the main outlet of Epicuro in Damansara Uptown and they do have weekday lunch promotion sets that is quite affordable and worthwhile to order if you do work or live in that area.
The restaurant comes with a simple interior, spacious and the lovely slow music. If you want a slow and relaxing brunch or dining experience, this is the proper place. You can chill and dine in peace in this cozy ambience.
Well, let’s check out their brunch menu.
We tasted many versions of ‘big breakfast’ in Kuala Lumpur and majority of them are disappointing including some of the popular restaurants. Thus, we hope we won’t be disappointed by Epicuro’s Big Breakfast.
Their version of big breakfast comes with wholemeal Toast, Cherry Tomatoes, Shimeji Mushroom, Pork sausage, Pork Bacon, Hash Browns with either egg.
First of all, the portion is generous and they serve pork in Epicuro so you get real bacon and pork sausages. The bread is tasty so is the bacon, the pork sausage is out of this world and scrambled egg well done. The hash browns are deep fried to perfection with that golden brown colour. Now, this is a big breakfast rightly done!
Their version of aglio olio comes with sauteed brown mushrooms, king trumpet mushrooms with bacon bits topped with rocket leaves. We love the taste of the aglio olio and this isn’t oily at all. For pasta lovers, this is a must.
Succulent Pork Chop with Mushroom and Bacon Sauce and the pork chop is good on its own even without the sauce. We love the tenderness of the pork chop and this is definitely one of the best in town. If you don’t believe what we said, just give it a try, this is worth the visit.
For dessert we ordered their signature waffles and ice cream. Their version of waffles is crisp golden brown waffles with maple syrup and one scoop of ice cream. For ice cream flavour, we recommend their homemade dulce de leche. It is a very popular argentine sauce and it taste similar to salted caramel. We bought lots of dulce de leche sauces when we travelled to Argentina many years ago. Their waffles are freshly made and it is crispy and fragrant. Compliment it with the maple syrup (not cheap honey syrup) and the dulce de leche ice cream, you will leave this restaurant with your face smiling.
Epicuro USJ Taipan definitely bring us joy with their brunch menu. We purposely drove there to try their brunch and it was worth it. If you are staying in Subang and USJ area, this is one place you should visit and even if you are not staying in that neighbourhood, you still can drop by. Would love to hear your feedback for this restaurant.
Opening hours: 10am-11pm (Tuesday till Sunday)
