Time Out says

Get around Milo Martinis and sambal scrambled eggs in the AM, before diving into baked roti and pork hock in the PM at this SE Asian inspired eatery

Richmond's mod-Asian diner Jamu is now dishing out a breakfast menu that merges Aussie brunch staples with South East Asian flavours. Chef Calvin Wong is rising earlier to dish out housemade crumpets (topped with either palm sugar butter or Vegemite), sambal scrambled eggs with chilli and bacon, and grilled cheese toasties packed with achar (Asian pickles) and fried eggs. 

You'll also find some creative ingredients like croissant ice cream and roast banana curd (which comes on buttermilk pancakes with chocolate crumble and grilled bananas) along with boozy brunch cocktails, which include a Milo Martini (with bourbon, Milo and milk) or a Breakfast Negroni (with gin, Campari, sweet vermouth and espresso). 

Later on in the day, the menu switches over to focus on grand meat plates so you can order a tomahawk rib-eye with Asian Bearnaise or pork hock with tamarind caramel sauce.
