2020.12.18 – The Break was set up during the Christmas season of 2020. In the midst of chaos and hopelessness due to the pandemic, we are here to provide a place for our customers to enjoy good honest food (made from scratch). We believe in homemade sauces and food. Delicious, yet hearty. Food brings people together, and a good place to throw private functions and events at The Break.
The Break is a neighbourhood restaurant created to destress and enjoy honest, good food. Our menu is meticulously curated with you in mind. Dine and chill with us because you matter the most. We are a pork-free Western restaurant located in Bandar Mahkota Cheras.
WHAT’S ON OUR MENU?
We have a simple menu with options of beef, lamb, chicken and fish alongside our soups and salads. Our signature dish is the Grilled Chicken Chop. Although this dish may seem common, we guarantee a unique experience at The Break.
For health-conscious folks, we got you covered with our best-seller, the Cheesy Broccoli Salad – a big bowl full of goodness and greens topped with cheese and activated nuts.
Fun fact: What are activated nuts? The nuts and seeds served here are washed and have gone through a process of activation, in which the nuts and seeds are soaked with Pink Himalayan Salt then dehydrated after that. This process takes a minimum of two days. Why is this process important? This will lower the phytic acid in the nuts and seeds for better absorption of nutrients and easier digestion.
Tea-rific people are welcome to come to enjoy a pot of tea from our special tea selections only found here in Malaysia. We offer a wide variety of drinks, hot and cold. Our drinks include various flavors of infused water, kombucha, and thirst quenchers.
Kindly refer to our Instagram for menu.
WHAT’S COOKING NEXT?
We are constantly learning and striving for improvement, we hope to meet the needs of our customers and be a trendsetter of the market. Therefore, be excited and stay tuned for our specials and weekend brunch menus very very soon!
PRIVATE FUNCTIONS & EVENTS
Our cozy environment and good vibes are value adds to any events. Don’t be shy and hit us up! Remember to book in advance for us to plan the operations and customised menu for your special occasion.
Because we love food as much as you do 🙂 Our simple and cozy setup with unique custom-made wood furniture creates the perfect atmosphere for a comfortable meal.
1. Our food and Homemade Soups and Sauces: Our food flavours are marinated using natural ingredients only~ No preservatives, no MSG, no chicken stock powder, no BS and nothing in there we shouldn’t eat. Therefore, we do apologise if our food or soups ran out, because we make our soups and sauces daily keeping them fresh. So… thinking our food is blend, think again, because we only allow whole foods at our place. Hence we’ve created this place for people who appreciate whole foods, because we know eating out too often with unnatural food additives in our food causes damage to our health in the long run (>.<)
2. Healthy fats: We use palm oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil and olive oil only, because it’s heat stable especially palm oil and coconut oil. Not all fats are created equal. Monounsaturated fats can improve blood cholesterol level and decrease risk for cardiovascular disease. Foods such as nuts, olive oils, nut butters, avocados. Another type of fat is called Polyunsaturated fat which are known as essential fats because the body cannot make them and needs to get from our food sources. Plant-based foods and oils are the primary source of this! Of the the fatty acid is called omega-3 fatty acids, which is beneficial for our heart, food such as fatty fish, nuts and seeds. Healthy fats is important in our diet, eat them at ease, but also in moderation too, keep it balance guys~~
We do not use hydrogenated oil because it can cause oxidation in our arteries which promotes inflammation and we don’t want that, so it’s definitely a big no no~
3. Activated Nuts: Partnering with Life House Wellness, we love the fact that our almonds, walnuts, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds served in our salads and pestos are activated! Wondering what’s activated nuts? It’s gone through a simple but long process of soaking them in Pink Himalayan Salt, and dehydrate them for 24 hours. Why doing so? This process will lower down the phytic acid in them, making them more bioavailable in nutrient absorption and great texture too! We gotta warn ya, it’s addictive on its own~
4. Alkaline Water: Our beverages are made with hydrogen rich water through the process of electrolysis. We believe in good quality food and drinking water, brings quality of life.

WHO ARE WE?
The founders, Michael, David, and myself, are three like-minded graduates from Taylors University, School of Hospitality, Culinary Arts & Tourism. On top of that, we share a common working experience at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre for an internship program under an MOU between the prestigious venue provider and the university. Soon after graduation, I continued as an event coordinator in KLCC, whereas, Michael and David worked at café, hotels, and restaurants respectively.
With an appetite for good honest food, we whipped out a plan to start something of our own. A quality and value-for-money menu was created. Thus, The Break was born.
Drop by if ever you’re in the mood for something light like a delicious salad or something heavier like Pan-Seared Fish Fillet. I assure you, eating at The Break is a new experience each and every time.
