It’s been a while, since I’ve had a great chicken dish.
Not good, not decent, but GREAT.
I’m glad to share that I’ve had one such great chicken dish recently.
Bedrock’s signature is its Salted Roast Chicken (RM18), brined for hours before it is roasted to a shiny, golden brown color.
The resultant flavour is tasty, yet not overly salty and moist chicken meat. Its name of ‘salted chicken‘ might trigger some of us to link its flavour to the famous Ipoh salted baked chicken but I’ll like to assure you that it is NOT similar at all.
As part of its opening special, the Salted Roast Chicken is being offered for only RM9 (usual price – RM18). That’s a wonderful homemade roast chicken meal for a price that is less than an unhealthy McD set!
Do take advantage of the offer as I can assure you that it will be worth the drive to Taipan.
Limited servings are prepared daily so it is best to head here for brunch or lunch.
During my last visit, I fueled up with another protein loaded dish with an order of Bedrock’s Shakshouka (RM16). This classic favourite offers 2 eggs in a moat of fresh-tasting, thick and fragrant tomato sauce loaded with
chicken sausages (personally I would have preferred a more premium version), soft and sweet whole cherry tomatoes and peppers.
Most importantly, the eggs are just set but not quite solid, with the yolks still jiggling and ready to flow at the merest suggestion of contact with my fork.
No beans you ask?
Nope, no beans. But you won’t miss it, that much I can assure you.
A side of homemade yoghurt was served alongside the dish; meant to be spread on the house-baked bread before dipping it into the runny goodness.
We sampled the thick and fluffy French toast next. The toast was crowned with bananas, 3 (THREE!) scoops of house-made ice cream and drizzled with chocolate and strawberry jam.
The pancakes were a bit denser than the standard variety you get from current cafes, so it is a matter of preference on whether you would enjoy Bedrock’s version or otherwise.
For the price, I found both the french toast (RM16) and the pancakes (RM12) a steal; considering the generous scoops of ice-cream alone.
My thoughts for improvement?
Homemade preserves (jams) and chocolate spread for both dishes.
After all the breads are baked in-house and Bedrock offers homemade yogurt and ice-cream, so why not for strawberry preserves and chocolate sauce (or something like Nutella but homemade since chocolate hazelnut spread is very easy to make) as well?
I doubt it would raise the cost significant but it would surely elevate the overall flavours of the french toast and pancakes.
The owners are understandably proud of their homemade peanut butter ice-cream; a creamy, sweet & nutty creation that nut butter fans would approve.
Coffee is Degayo, and so was my hot chocolate.
Another reason to visit? Beautiful interior that’s made for Instagram.
All furniture are self-made in-house and a careful mix and match of materials and colours gave the whole place a modern, minimalistic yet comfy vibe.
Need privacy? Sick of the usual cramped cafes in town?
Bedrock offers a relaxed atmosphere for lingering and the spacious space offers both air conditioning and an open area at the “balcony” for those who dislike air-con (like me) though that could mean sharing the space with smokers.
Cakes are available of course.
