Watercress may not be on Jalan Petitenget but a the next street after, it’s a worthwhile visit for a delectable brunch. Visit Watercress and you’ll understand the promise “always fresh and plentiful, abundant goodness for all”.
The ever-crowded Watercress is run by six quirky staff—all locals, who passionately cook rustic breakfast selections, brew coffee, and is famous for lunch showcase. They believe it’s never the wrong time for two perfectly poached eggs over crunchy chat potatoes, rosemary butter mushrooms and peppery rocket thrown together with goat cheese and balsamic reduction or perhaps free range poached eggs over crispy sweet corn fritters, chunky avocado salsa, chili jam, sour cream and grilled bacon. Seriously, it’s that good.
