Cod Fish Hash & Full English Breakfast, Oriole Cafe & Bar

So how did the start of your 2012 feasting go? Mine got off with a gentle Singaporean nudge in the right direction, a quiet breakfast at Oriole, nestled within Somerset.

Just what the doctor ordered after one beer tower too many on the first day of the new year - Cod Fish Hash. Of course, any combination of potatoes and eggs would have done the job, but to do a magnificent one, you need to pair them with beautifully smoked fish. I need to find a place to procure smoked cod in KL; requires a bit of work, but this is something the most austere of kitchens could and should attempt to whip up.

Full English Breakfast was good, not great, but good. Crispy bacon lent this some star power, because for some reason, bacon has ceased to be crispy at all pork-friendly joints in KL. Bacon is not bacon if it ain't crispy. Understand, muppets?

Easy breezy beautiful

New Year, ya got me eating out of your hands already!

y'know what i'd love to find on a breakfast platter sometime? black pudding/blood sausage! i'm not sure where to get that at a KL eatery (i know el cerdito at changkat bukit bintang serves it, but only for a tapas dish, not for brekkie), though i suspect the search would be easier in singapore :D

They MAY still do breakies there, that is if they are still around. Was 3+ years ago when I last went!

For crispy bacon in KL, try Antipodean in Bangsar - I usually ask for mine extra crispy. And they serve real PORK bacon and PORK sausages too. Hurrah! :)

I agree with Kenny!!! Just wish there were most such non-halal cafe around :p

Wishing you and your family a joyful and best of health this lunar new year. Xin nien kuai le!

Saying bacon isn't bacon if it aint crispy is kinda like saying steak isnt steak if it aint well done. Pshtt... muppet.

I can remember quite well when I had an English breakfast for the last time, my soul is desperately longing for it but I have to obey the advice of the doctor and take care of my health since I was pretty unserious about my health condition all these years.

This post really exacerbated my hunger. No matter how harmful it is for the cholesterol level and for the healthy diet, right now I would kill for a lavish omelette with bacon. Shoot me, I am guilty!
