With its wide range of delicacies and drinks chalked up on the big black board, Antipodean is fronting the breakfast/brunch scene throughout the Klang Valley. Its name reflects its gastronomic roots in Australia and New Zealand. For a reasonable RM 20, the Big Breakfast boasts buttery scrambled eggs, perfectly sauteed mushrooms that practically melt in your mouth, your choice of meat, homemade hash browns, sausages and a slender slice of toast. At RM 17, the Mushroom Spinach Carbonara isn’t your typical carbonara dish — it leans toward the creamier side, and one of the waiters explained that the people of New Zealand love their carbonaras extra milky. Chewy pieces of shell-shaped pasta swim in a deep pool of cream sauce, the rich product of fresh milk and cream and pecorino cheese. A zest of lemon is added to elevate the milky flavor.
