How Do You Like Your Eggs? (Kuala Lumpur's Five Best Breakfasts)

Pairs Well With...Breakfast, the most important, sunny side up meal of the day.

You know the story: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Morning fuel is critical, and that first "this hits the spot" meal is everything.  I've spent the month of February scouting out the best, most novel breakfasts in Kuala Lumpur.  Not only did I succeed in finding what I was looking for, but I also won - big time. Trying to find a traditional, semi-familiar delicious breakfast can sometimes be a challenge as a foreigner.  Lucky for you, I did all the dirty work. All walkable from Kuala Lumpur's City Center, these five breakfast hot-spots will have you coming back for seconds: VCR: 2, Jalan Galloway Kuala Lumpur 50150 With one of the best menus in town, VCR is a go-to destination for Sunday brunchin'.  Their menu offers everything from eggs-as-you'd-like, to a variety of toasts - and everything in between.  VCR's rustic downstairs atmosphere and scenic upstairs views allow you to enjoy your brunch as you wish. Best location for: The Sunday Bruncher What to get: French Toast (oh, but it's so much more)

VCR French Toast

  The menu describes it as: Espresso no churn ice cream, fluffy brioche french toast, raspberry compote, crumbles and mocha sauce. What the menu should've said: "This tower of delight will put your future breakfasts to shame, so you mine as well never bother ordering French Toast ever again. The chocolate raspberry goodness, soaked into the airy cinnamon bread, topped with a softening dollop of cold ice cream, will make you unsure of whether you're eating breakfast or dessert."

  Ola Bowls: C5.06.00, Pavilion Shopping Mall, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Yes, from the outside, this may look like nothing more than a smoothie shack with a toppings menu as long as your to-do list.  Look beyond appearances and into the heart of the menu where you will find options that sing to your stomach - and a plethora of colorful smoothie bowls! Best location for: The Health Enthusiast What to get: King of Greens

Ola Bowls - King of Greens

  The menu describes it as: Farm power with avocado and banana blend topped with goji berries, crushed almonds, cranberries bananas and coconut flakes. What the menu should've said: "Nourishment by the spoonful, and made with love.  This horizontal smoothie will beam you up for the day like you wouldn't believe." LOKL Coffee Co.: 30 Jalan Tun H S Lee Kuala Lumpur 50100 This is as local as it gets, and a regular hangout for many. With a space as vibrant and fresh as their food, LOKL offers a plethora of intriguing breakfast options, so there's something for everyone. With everything on the menu sounding heavenly, make sure to plan for a second visit while you're in KL. Best location for: The Indecisive Eater What to get: The Frittata

LOKL Fritatta

  The menu describes it as: Spanish omelet, smoked chicken sausage, leeks, potatoes, and onions.  Served with a side of grilled vegetables. What the menu should've said: "This hearty egg delight is a symphony to your taste buds - an overall breakfast crescendo! The bold flavors of the frittata chased by mellow savoriness of the vegetable side will help you hit those high notes for days." Other LOKL notables:

  Coffee Amo: 1st Floor, 54, Jalan Sultan, Kuala Lumpur 50000 Unsure of where to start, I'll give you the first three words that come to mind: Bear. Rum. Latte.  With on-point, hand-crafted coffee couture, you can't go wrong.  Coffee Amo has one of the best lattes I've had - in my life.  While their menu is small, their coffee is kickin'.  I'm thinking about stickin'.   If you're lucky enough to find this gem, tucked away in the middle of Chinatown, you must stop by for your daily caffeine drip. Best location for: The "I Can Take it or Leave it" breakfast crowd, but gotta have my coffee  What to get: Bear. Rum. Latte.

Coffee Amo Bear Rum Latte

  The menu describes it as: (spoiler alert) A latte.  You pick the flavor, and the barista works on a design.  Should you try to order a "Bear Rum Latte," your barista may give you a funny look. What the menu should've said: Option #1 - (Mic drop. No words necessary) Option #2 - "Your latte is not only going to be the shit, but it's also going to be the envy of all your friends - and everyone else on Instagram." Option #3 - This furry fella likes long walks on the beach, candlelit dinners, and bathing in tubs of rum lattes. He's the perfect breakfast companion. Other Coffee Amo notables:

  Feeka Coffee Roasters: 19, Jalan Mesui, Bukit Bintang, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia A Kuala Lumpur favorite known for their spectacular service, coffee - and serving breakfast ALL day! Feeka's menu is well-balanced and health-minded with a large dose of variety. Best location for: The Charming Coffee Shop Enthusiast  What to get: Umm...Everything?!  Pick just one item? Okay, the B.A.L.E.T.

Feeka's B.A.L.E.T.

The menu describes it as: Beef bacon, eggs lettuce and avocado and roasted tomatoes served on top of toast. What the menu should've said: "Piled high, this perfectly textured sandwich-eque delight will start your day sunny side up." (Bonus Round) J.Co Donuts: Novelty donuts anyone? Move over cake, beat it crumpets, the donut train is coming through. With more than 25 sugary delights daily, pint-sized to-go sample packs, these donuts are truly "everything you ever wanted in a donut." Looking is free.  Donuts are extra. Best location for: The Sweet Tooth What to get: Everything!!!
