The Zao of Zen: This calm new cafe is a white-walled haven for daytime dreamers, open purely for breakfast & lunch (starting at 6am on weekdays!), specialising in freshly grilled sandwiches, with no fewer than 10 varieties packed with fun combinations.
Green eggs (basically a vegetable-laced omelette) with baked pumpkin (RM10) & pork loin with mashed avocado & peas (RM18) might be the top sandwich temptations, with pleasing flavours that bridge the chasm between East & West. Each sandwich comes with a side of the day, all assembled to order, so there could be a 10-minute wait for your food. Wash down with Zao's own cold-pressed juice (can't resist a beetroot beverage) or house-made hot brown sugar ginger tea.
Zao: Breakfast Anytime
50G, Jalan 19/3, Petaling Jaya. Open Mon-Tues, Thurs-Fri, 6am-3pm; Sat-Sun, 8am-4pm. Tel: 011-2828-9173
