Red Tomato dining experience in Langkawi

I'm going to update some posts about Langkawi that me and my family went there 2 months back, no more procrastinating. Laugh. Thanks to my bro-in-law to be our driver throughout the vacation, and sis for planning all the itinerary for us although I'm the one who been there before, but really lazy to do it lah. The weather really killing us and I became darker after getting back from Langkawi; our vacation was quite relax because we don't want too pack and rush, after-all Langkawi only have few places to go. 
People always ask where to find food in Langkawi, and those seafood restaurant only available at night, how about morning and noon hours? Apart from those kopitiam and mamak stall which serve food with cheaper price range, I'm going to share 2 cafes/restaurants which serve good food as well but with slightly higher price range. Having luxury breakfast once in a blue moon is not overmuch, the most important is you enjoy yourself during the trip with friends/family. So stop guilty and scroll down for the sake of good food.
Let's start with Red Tomato first, the second cafe will be reveal on the coming post. When my sister told me we are going to have breakfast here, I started to flash black that I'd been here once but the photos in the website are way different. Previously, the old Red Tomato named as Red Tomato Garden Cafe closed it's door and moved to a new place as it is now with a different style of design. Personally I love the old one more because it make you feel like you are dining in the mid of jungle. It's not hard to locate the restaurant, once you see a conspicuous pinky Beetle along the Jalan Pantai Cenang, then you found it!
We were quite early that day, there was only a few tables occupied and we chose outdoor seats to enjoy the birdie chirping and tree creaking sound - the natural! The indoor is quite dim due to the lighting and they brought along a few decor from old shop to here as well, peep the bird cages at the counter side! The interior design is quite nice with Oli's (shop owner) artwork ;Oli leads a life as restaurateur by day and artist by night, big claps to him to merge both of his passion with the unique interior design.
Red Tomato not only serve breakfast, they do have lunch and also dinner, so you can drop by Red Tomato anytime; I still remember me and coursemates dropped by there (the old one) after we finished our island hopping. We didn't ordered much drinks, so 5 of us only share 3 drinks, dad's espresso, mine is milk and sister's watermelon juice.
Garden Special . RM12.50
Over the western style restaurant, of course the choices also become western-ly, here comes mum's pick of the breakfast - Garden Special. It's actually an omelette cooked together with fresh mushroom, onion, tomato and fresh basil; and you can choose either beef bacon, turkey ham or just veggies to put in your omelette. Apart from this, they served with homemade bread or toast; we chose homemade bread and the bread taste like coffee? Laugh. The portion of their breakfast is quite huge, so we were sharing all together to try different thing. 
Farmers Choice . RM12.50
From the name of this breakfast, you may roughly know that farmers always have this as their breakfast because the ingredients can fulfill them for their whole-day-work. This hearty meal is cooked with lots of potatoes, tomato, mushroom, egg and cheese; of course, again you can choose either beef bacon, turkey ham or veggies. I kind of like this dish with the potatoes, yeah I'm potato lover also!
Egg Benedict . RM18.50
Wanted to try egg benedict for times, here comes the chance! Me, sister and bro-in-law ordered this together, just we chose different kind of bread, either normal toast or homemade bread. It's a poached egg with spinach (I wonder why they want to put so much of steamed spinach on top, the taste together is kind of weird) topped with sauce bearnaise. Then you can choose fresh salmon, beef bacon or tomato and fresh mushroom. I finished the spinach first before I touched other ingredient, the bearnaise sauce is so creamy that make you feel like cheese! 
Last but not least, family photo before we left the place. Omg! My face is so round is this photo and I look stupid with the messy hair.
