Food Review - JOM Bali Cafe
JOM Bali Cafe (Halal)
Coffee and Toast (with Eggs)
Carrefour Subang Jaya
It’s located on the 1st floor of the Carrefour Subang Jaya.
Ample parking spaces in the Carrefour car-park.
Surprisingly, service was extremely slow even though the place was almost empty when I visited. We had to wait about 25 minutes for the coffee and toast to arrive.
The place is clean and well-lit. However, I have not figured out why the name is Jom Bali as neither the décor nor (with the exception of the stone tiles near the service counter) the menu were Balinese.
The coffee was rather bland and lacked the oomph from either the coffee beans or the way it was brewed. The milk didn’t do much for it either.
The half boiled egg on garlic toast was pretty good as the egg was done just right and the aroma from the garlic butter spread on the toast made it almost impossible to resist ordering more. The slice of turkey ham however was an un-necessary distraction that didn’t really go well with the egg or toast either visually or taste-wise.
Being a coffee junkie, almost any coffee looks good to me. However, I was unpleasantly surprised that this one didn’t taste as good as it looked.
The Egg on Toast was very well done and presented. Having the egg put on top of the slice of turkey ham sitting on the toast was quite creative. However, the color of the turkey ham made it look a little odd as it looked like some kind of synthetic meat.
There were quite a number of items on the menu, mainly consisting of light items.
Value for Money
Very affordable for a rather nice and comfy place.
Good place to take a quick break when you are shopping and needed a cool drink and some snacks.
