Go light with Nooks Duo, two petite buns in two flavours- Tuna Mayo and Scramble Egg. Soft buns are baked in kitchen, using wholesome wholemeal flour without additives and preservatives. Nooks by Baker Dave will alternate between wholemeal, black sesame, wholemeal flaxseed and multigrain everyday for more savouring choices.
A wholesome platter that put together 1 slice of toast of the day (we had wholemeal flaxseed), chicken sausage, butter & jam, egg roll with turkey ham, cheese. We love the eggroll. Fluffy throughout, encased with melting cheese and smokiness of turkey ham.
Diners who wish to have meatless meal, rejoice as Nooks by Baker Dave is considerate enough to serve few vegetarian dishes such as this Sesame Chicken, highly recommended for roasted sesame lovers. Spaghetti is dressed in a bed of rich, creamy sesame sauce, topped with vegetarian chicken, carrot, shitake mushrooms, sweet peas.
Rendang Chicken with Rice
Besides highlighting their homemade buns, Nooks by Baker Dave also prides for dishes with a taste of mom homecooked food. Spicy hot, packed with pronounced flavours of curry and a side of fragrance rice, this Rendang Chicken with Rice can easily become the crowd favourite. Recommended.
Suggest to end your meal with dessert such as Mango Cheesecake or Ultimate Chocolate Cake, then pair with a cup of coffee using beans roasted by Lighthouse Coffee Roaster. Didn’t try out any coffee in our visit but we were told that the blend scores a caramel like sweetness, with a hint of nutty attributes.
In short, Nooks by Baker Dave is a rather great place to stop by in Sri Hartamas. More quiet, delicious dishes with creative twist, and what’s more important is, they have wonderful dessert that pairs well with their coffee.
