Frisson Coffee Bar @ Damansara Uptown PJ - Pricey Cafe Food

Friso? Frisco? Fris-what? Frisson Coffee Bar. Sounds more like a name for a car workshop to me.

Frisson Coffee Bar

Frisson Coffee Bar is slightly over a month old. Located along the ever bustling stretch of cafes in Uptown, alongside The Good Batch (Part 1 & Part 2), Wondermilk and right next to Fat Spoon Cafe. Parking was surprisingly a breeze that day.

I stepped into a half-packed Frisson on that Saturday afternoon, quite taken aback by the peaceful sight to be honest. I was half expecting to wait for a table, knowing that weekend brunch-hour is the peak-hour for cafes like these. But then again, the place is still very new, hence word of mouth may not have traveled that far just yet.

No need to park far way and no need to wait for a table. Sounds like a fabulous start to my weekend already.

Frisson Coffee Bar Menu.

Earl Grey Tea. Rm6.

Orange Juice. Rm8.

Frisson's Signature Bruschetta. Rm4.90/each.

We ordered the Peanutella (peanut butter, cheese, fried bananas) and Salmon Egg (salmon, cheese, egg). One savory; one sweet. I thought both were quite pleasant but the toppings really didn't justify the price paid.

Baked Breakfast In A Pot. Rm25.90.

Anything that comes baked in a pot, means hearty food for me. This minced beef breakfast in a pot came packed with vegetables, delicious and pipping hot on my first mouthful. There's also a vegetarian alternative.

Croissant Ala Fusion Chicken. Rm24.90.

The winner for me today. A tasteful blend of flavors derived from 6-spiced chicken that I thought resembled a milder version of curry chicken, with well done scrambled eggs and a fantastic crisp croissant at the side.

Overall Rating: 7.5/10. Despite being new, I thought Frisson have already gotten most of the equation right. The food was surprisingly good, especially the Croissant Ala Fusion Chicken, you have to order that here. Apart from the overpriced bruschetta, the rest that I sampled today were also quite good. That said, for me, this cafe lacked excitement. The food was good no doubt, in fact, better than some of its neighbors, but I didn't see anything interesting in their menu that would make me come back for more, nothing that looked outstanding or specifically-Frisson. Somehow, the settings here also reminded me of TGB, the interior and black signboard especially. Withal, this cafe is certainly worthy of trying, at least once, particularly so if you'd like eggs - they've got plenty of omelettes in their menu.
