All-Day Breakfast, Salted Eggs Baonedict And More At Departure Lounge In Uptown

Departure Lounge at Damansara Utama aka Uptown is my go-to lunch spot during weekdays. It’s simple, yummy, and provides all-day breakfast. How can anyone ever say no to all-day breakfast?!

They specialise in breakfast, brunch, and coffee. Personally, I haven’t tried their coffee yet, but it smells divine every time they make a brew while I’m there. Mmmmmm… coffeeeeee…

The Food

Their main attraction (for me) is the build-your-own breakfast option.

I usually get 5-items: White bread, beef bacon, turkey bacon, fried eggs, hashbrown, fresh button mushrooms. But their upgraded french toast is super yummy too.

They recently changed their menu, I believe they improve on it quite consistently so it’s really nice to keep going and try new things.

Here’s their menu:

Today I decided to try something different, instead of my usual do-it-my-way breakfast platter. I ordered the Salted Egg Yolk Baonedict. Why is it called baonedict and not benedict? Because it’s on a bao. Mmmmmm… BAO!

Ok, story time. Prior to lunch, our head of video production gave me some pointers on how to take really nice food pictures. He said, always super close up and at a 45 degree angle. So check out this gorgeous pic of my Salted Egg Yold Baonedict:

Two perfectly poached eggs on top of crispy fried chicken and fresh, shredded cucumber, sitting on top of a fried bao. With a good helping of salad on the side.

Gowri had a sandwich:

Looks so sad but she said it was good.

I once just wanted a snack so I ordered their fries, which are supposedly mixed with garlic aioli and crispy turkey bacon. It was the saddest snack I have ever eated. It was just a small pile of fries with very little flavour and maybe 5 specks of turkey bacon. Plus, it cost like RM12. NEVER. AGAIN.

Otherwise I’ve always been happy with the food.

FOOD: 4.5/5

The Ambiance

The theme of the restaurant is travel, I assume? Your last meal in the Departure Lounge before your great, next adventure. They recently revamped the inside and it looks much classier and cuter than before. It’s a nice chill-out place. Not particularly kid-friendly, I wouldn’t bring my children here. It’s very adult. Basically, it’s awesome.

The Service

The service is fast, the staff are nice. Water and condiments are all self-service, which I love. I can pile on the mustard to my heart’s content.


Final Thoughts

It’s a nice brunch place if you’re into nice brunch places. A bit pricey. Not an everyday place to eat at. I mean, I need my asian spices. Western food is just so… so-so.

I feel like having breakfast for dinner now.
