Breakfast foods are hailed as one of the best comfort foods ever, even if not all of us share the same enthusiasm for the AM. But to get yourself ready for the busy day ahead, a good satiating breakfast might be exactly what you need. If you ever find yourself in the heart of Ampang, here are some breakfast spots to check out for morning fixes!
How do you like the sound of sizzling kimchi soup waking you up? In the morning, that’s a big yes in our books. Run by a Korean couple, b.station feels more like a home than a shop. The eatery, decked out in adorable drawings and a ton of plants, reflects the couple’s desire to serve healthy home-cooked breakfasts. This means their meals are free of nasties and MSG, and only the goodness of fresh ingredients are laid out to give you the fuel you’ll need to power through the working day.
Opening hours: 10:30am – 10pm
Address: C14-1, Jalan Ampang Utama 1/1, Taman Ampang Utama, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
2. 28 Fireplace
Warm and laidback, 28 Fireplace plays stark contrast to the hectic runs of Ampang city. Modelled after Australian cafes, this breakfast spot puts up big portions for the big eaters, from the Fireplace Brekkie to the Classic Egg Toast. For adventurous diners, the weirdly satisfying Firebomb (a combination of coffee and cream soda blend) is one that’s a must-try.
Opening hours: 9am – 10pm
Address: 28, Persiaran Ampang, Desa Pahlawan, 55000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
3. Mak Jah Corner
Only in Malaysia, do we find it acceptable to eat desserts for breakfast. But when the selection of kuih muih is this extensive? It would be rude not to enjoy it. Down in Mak Jah corner, nothing is unfamiliar to Malaysians. Want a spicy plate of Nasi Lemak to start the day? They’ve got it. Hot laksa to wake up your system? Check. The traditional local way is not lost on this one, and sometimes having a roti canai is just as good, if not better than devouring a pancake.
Opening hours: 7am – 6pm
Address: No. 26, Jalan Kolam Air Lama, Ampang Jaya, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
4. Foong Foong Yong Tau Fu
Though a little unconventional for breakfast, Yong Tau Foo is especially apt for the cold mornings in December. Warm but not too heavy in portions, enjoy fresh fried ingredients like ladyfingers and brinjal soaked in a comforting bowl of broth. Foong Foong Yong Tau Foo has been a reputable spot since the 70s, so you know it’s definitely a place worth waking up for. It also happens to be Halal so you can jio your Muslim friends for a morning date too!

Address: 621, Jalan Merdeka, Kampung Baru Ampang, 68000 Ampang, Selangor
