Sunday breakfasts are always special to me as it is the only consistent meal which the Bald Eagle and I share together. Sometimes, our time spent together is filled with animated chatter, mostly in updating each other on the latest events happening in our lives, and at other times, it is companionable silence.

I suppose I am thankful for the fact that we share a like-mindedness for good food and a desire to enjoy whatever little time with each other over a pleasant meal and quiet conversation. With these needs in mind, one will often find us at various restaurants, enjoying a lazy morning over a cup of espresso and a somewhat sinful looking meal.


Yesterday, after church, we drove to Neroteca, an Italian restaurant, located at the Somerset Residences at Lorong Ceylon. At 10.30 in the morning, this place can be rather secluded and quiet. Which was perfect for us as we didn’t want to hear the chatter of people so early in the morning.


The restaurant is rather small, and if you wish to dine here for lunch or dinner, reservations are a must.


Only the breakfast menu was available at that hour, so we ordered the Rivisitata and the Tonica set. The Bald Eagle’s Rivisitata came with stewed lentils and sausages, toast with cheese and scrambled eggs.


The stewed lentils were a little spicy, which was great for the Bald Eagle who likes things savoury.


My Tonica breakfast came with two fried eggs with mushroom, rocket salad and parmesan cheese. I absolutely love this meal as the eggs were sufficiently fried to hold all the ingredients together, but still managed to remain a little runny.


The eggs were generously drizzled with parmesan cheese and tasted wonderful with the buttered toast. Both meals came with coffee while mine came with a juice as well.


Our tiramisu was such a pleasure to eat. It was not only visually pleasing, but tasted heavenly. Probably one of the best I’ve tasted with its distinct layers of mascarpone cheese, cream and liqueur.

Our bill came up to RM77. A small price to pay for a little bit of happiness.
