Simple Homemade Food & Breads @ Red Kettle, Taman Bukit Desa

That row of shoplot at Bukit Desa is surprisingly becoming pretty happening lately with more F&B outlets opening. We've been there previously for Sanuki Udon and Encore Patisserie. Today we are going to explore a new bakery cafe - Red Kettle

When we visited Red Kettle, they were only 22-day-old but it is quite obvious that they have already become quite a hit, I'm assuming most of them are from the neighourhood, some might be curious customers like us, who read about them from a food blog earlier.
Half of the bakery cafe is their bakery kitchen which makes the entire place smells so good with the fragrance of freshly baked breads. They sell their breads of course, together with some muffins and cookies. But we were there for their hot food, of course.

They have a one-pager menu with some pretty simple offerings, and excitingly, they are non-halal yo! Pricing ranges from RM15-RM25, which aren't that bad. So here are what we had for a hearty Saturday brunch.
Baguette as starter, FOC.
Angel Hair in Broth, RM18.
Sausage & Mash, RM18.
Signature Pork Chop, RM15.
The Angel Hair in Broth is quite an interesting dish - it looks like a Western version of Ramen yet without a big bowl of soup. It's very light and has a very nice fragrance from the roasted sesame while the thin slices of roasted pork shoulder and soy lava egg made the dish pretty delicious! I would have preferred it with a little greens though. I find the Sausage and Mash and Signature Pork Chop just decent but seriously, those flavourful homemade gravy and fluffy mashed potatoes saved the day! Very well done I must say! Just beware that a guy like Deardo doesn't think the portion is big enough.
Iced Lime Juice, RM4.50.
Iced Ribena Lychee, RM5.50.
I was quite disappointed with the fact that they don't serve coffee (they only have Vietnamese drip and cold brew coffee), leaving us with no choice but to order some cold syrup-based drinks (boo~). I hope it is only temporary cos I really think coffee are very important in cafe like this. 
Anyway, with a 10% service charge, the bill came up to RM67.10 (this was before April 1st), which is quite reasonable. Honest opinion from me? Worth a try, especially the food! But I really do hope coffee will be included in their menu soon.
