The Break First in JB for Korean thick toast and more
The sando trend doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon, with the likes of Pipes by Hattendo and Gyu San taking the social media world by storm. Another one to add to your list is The Break First, located across the Causeway. This Korean-inspired cafe in JB serves Korean thick toasts, aesthetically-pleasing drinks and more at wallet-friendly prices.
The Break First is located in the quiet Jalan Eko Botani locale, which is a 30-minute drive from the customs. Here, you can get your egg sandwich fix without breaking the bank, as prices start from just RM 9.90+, or S$3.10+, for the Egg Mayo Sandwich.
For a savoury upgrade, get the Korean Smoked Bacon (RM15.90+/~S$5.10+), a loaded sandwich featuring fluffy and thick toast, stuffed with bacon and scrambled eggs. The loaded sandwich is then drizzled with mayo and a sweet sauce to finish.
The Korean-inspired sandwiches are also available in flavours such as Korean Luncheon Meat (RM13.90+/~S$4.50) and Potato Salad (RM10.90+/~S$3.50+).
If you’re visiting with friends, order the Seaweed Fries (RM14.90+/~S$4.80+) to share. This side features seaweed shreds atop thin and crispy fries, served with mayo and chilli sauce for dipping.
Then, wash everything down with a Matcha (RM14.90+/~S$4.80+), a creamy beverage comprising creamy milk with strong matcha powder.
Another popular and lesser-seen beverage is the Iced Rose Latte (RM 16.90/~S$5.50+): sweet rose syrup layered with fresh milk and espresso.
