Best Value Bacon Brunch At Leonardo's Dining Room and Wine Loft, Jln Bangkung

When I picked up my "plus one" fellow food lover, @anitaeats on Instagram, she said, she forgot to bring a bottle of white.  I said, huh?  Bring a bottle of white for what?  It's a champagne brunch we're going for.  She said, "Are you sure?  It's just a bacon brunch la"...I said, no no, I"m quite sure it's a champagne or bubbly brunch.

Well, turns out I was only semi correct.  Yes, there is bubbly and champagne, available for ala carte orders, but here's the clincher, they are so reasonably priced, it's almost too good to be true.  As alcohol is usually the most important part of the equation in a meal, for me, I shall say a bit more about the bottles.

The Taittinger is priced at RM230, (usually RM336),
The Anna at RM168 (UP270),
Zonin at RM150 (UP 240),
Nederburg RM135 (UP 204), and the
Mc Guigan at RM135 (UP204).

If that alone isn't reason to head there on a Sunday, especially the next two coming long weekends, (Monarch's birthday and Malaysia Day), the next compelling reason would definitely be the bacon spread itself.  Priced at a very reasonable price of RM39++ (or RM24++ per child below 15), the glorious spread at this porcine paradise is really in my opinion one of the best values bacon brunches.

Sausage wrapped with bacon, vegetables wrapped with bacon, bacon and tomato, ..and an egg station as well for bacon (if you must) omelettes or eggs done in other styles.


Bacon and eggs perhaps?

For the more health conscious, there is also a sizeable spread of salads, quinoa, pastas...


My very delicate and carefully curated breakfast platter.....

There is also a decent selection of desserts...

Now just in case the brunch spread is insufficient, (in which case I'd really like to meet the person with such voracious appetite), there is a bacon antipasti add on, priced at RM15++ per dish, which include :
Spaghetti Carbonara With Bacon
Pancakes with Maple Syrup, Berries and Vanilla Ice Cream
Waffle With Bacon and Fried  Eggs, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms with salad,
Penne Pork Bolognaise
Bacon Fried Rice with Pork Satay
Bangers And Mash With Chorizo Sausage and Onion Gravy.

We were fortunate to be able to try all the 5 bottles in the selection, starting with the lowest priced one and making our way upwards.  Needless to say, the Taittinger was the best.

Yes, this favourite..

Anyway, I reckon for around RM200 per head, you should be able to walk away with a bursting stomach and a pleasing buzz for the rest of the Sunday.
