Mangia : Brunch at its prettiest

I am secretly hoping there would be a homey place with colorful wooden chair, white walls, old windows, and brunch menu on the list. And, voila! Here it is : Mangia. 
Located at the cafe-dominated Panglima Polim, Mangia surely shouldn't be underestimated. 
It was 1 pm, the traffic is kind of hectic, I was expecting it would be worth my trip.
Mangia resides next to TacoLocal, they doesn't have an area big enough to park the visitor's cars, so they provides a valet service.

I headed to the second floor, which was more spacious.It was divided into 2 area upstairs, smoking and non smoking one. I love the soft pink chair, I love the old-style window, I love the vintage plate mat on my table. And when the menu came, I was so excited that they're serving breakfast for all day long!

Remember the famous Ikea's Swedish meatballs? Yes you can get it here! 5 tender meatballs were served with brown-sauce-poured-mashed-potato, and of course a little touch of berry sauce on the side of it. It was a tasty one indeed! I think I will pay another visit for it.

And brunch won't be perfect without poached egg in it, right? Got myself a plate of Egg Florentine, which was basically composed by an Italian bread on the bottom, spinach, poached egg, and Hollandaise sauce on top. The yolk of the egg was beautifully pouring everything on the plate when I cut it open. The dish alone needed a pinch of salt and pepper to make it a palatable one.

The waiter suggested me to try the wheatgrass shot, he said it was like drinking 1 kg of vegetable. Actually it tasted like a fake one because this one was too sweet to be a healthy juice, maybe they used too many sugar on it. The tropical twist was a bit sour it could make you crinkle.

Mangia succeed to impress me with its warmth. A pleasant one indeed.
