The cake itself is an aromatic earl grey with a nice crumb. They don't hold back when it comes to the glaze which is cool by me because I got a loud blast of that gorgeous intense lemon zing. And that's the way I like it, uh-ha uh-ha :)
What a poetic name for a smile-inspiring cake :) The frosting is what sets this rainbow cake apart from the others out there. It is more of a thick and dense chocolate fudge rather than the usual soft type of cream cheese or vanilla buttercream frosting found on other cakes. Spread generously all over and in-between each coloured cake layer, you can't help but get full-on chocolate in every bite. Not a bad thing if you are a chocoholic.
Simmered in the thick slightly spicy tomato gravy were two eggs which had yolks that're still runny when I broke them. Eating this with my fingers was such a novelty - tearing off chunks of the warm Turkish "pide" bread to dip in the rich sauce.
The two sides of a salad (comprising of tiny cubes of cucumber, tomatoes and onion) and "tahini" dip (a smooth, creamy sesame paste) rounded off my vegetarian meal nicely.
I was torn between the Chicken Rendang and Eggs Royale but in the end, the latter's "Recommended" tag in the menu swayed me.
Instead of the typical English muffin/brioche base, their eggs were served on Turkish bread which worked nicely too. Hollandaise sauce was very slightly sweet, flavourful and not overly creamy. As for the salad, they dressed it up with the ever-popular Japanese sesame sauce.
My verdict: Although decent, it's rather pricey at $20. What's worth noting though is that it's available from 8.30am daily. So those with early morning cravings for Eggs Ben now have a place to go.
Good morning fellow Burpplers!
Creamy scrambled eggs + sourdough toast + sautéed spinach + a little tub of butter (for me, myself and I, yippee) = A breakfast I champion 😄
The rice used for the paella was more like the normal rice we eat locally instead of the short grain rice, but still tasty and the meat was tender. Had the fajitas also which was ok. Generally food was not too bad though it did leave us thirsty after that...
