You know, brunch is not all about eggs and pancakes. Since we had travelled all the way here, it was absolutely necessary for us to settle our brunch at Poison Ivy Bistro
. The Poison Ivy Bistro is aptly named after farmpreneur Ivy Singh-Lim
, a fiesty 63 year old who is not afraid to say what’s on her mind. Expect only healthy meals with the freshest farm produce at Poison Ivy Bistro. There is no MSG and very little salt is used. If you prefer more salt, just ask for the ‘poison’. Oh, do note that payment is to be made by cash only.
We shared three servings of Brown Rice
between ourselves. On average, the starters and mains are priced at $4 and $6 respectively.
I suggested ordering the Bolly Banana Curry
because banana and curry sounded like a pretty interesting combination! This dish wasn’t very spicy and the texture of the banana was akin to that of boiled potatoes. Do you know that Bollywood Veggies’ key offering is bananas? Their bananas are legendary and there are over 20 different types! You must try their bananas when you go there!
Of the two curry mains, I very much prefer the Warrior’s Chicken Curry
which does not contain coconut milk. The curry is thick and well-flavored with a variety of spices, while the chicken is cooked till tender. In general, I found that this was suitably spicy and would appeal to most people.
As the saying goes, ‘never judge a book by its cover’. The same can be said for the Otah Omelette
. This might look like an ordinary piece of omelette with a slab of otah but there’s more than meets the eye. Generous chunks of fish meat could be found in the otah and the egg omelette was extremely lemak!
