Here you don’t have the option of really choosing sugar levels, rather 2 options of choosing 50% or 100% honey levels. I went with the 50% honey level together with normal ice and it was just right. Decent drink, nothing surprising, only wished that the flavour of the tea could have been stronger and more apparent in this drink, especially with the staff brewing and steeping the tea right in front of you. So for $4.20, this cup of honey green tea is rather steep. Further, though decent, we waited about 20 minutes for this, which made it really not worth it.

At 0% sugar level, this chrysanthemum milk tea already comes with pearls, so the sweetness is just right. Genuinely impressed with the relatively strong chrysanthemum flavour in this milk tea. I thought it would be diluted and stingy in taste, but this cup of milk tea checks all the boxes of what makes a decent cup of chrysanthemum milk tea with pearls. I honestly think it can compete with playmade’s chrysanthemum milk tea, however, the absence of sesame pearls definitely gives playmade the winning point. But for $3.90, I would definitely see this as an affordable bubble tea option that is worth one’s buck.

Wanted to try their limited edition famous lobster rolls but it was unfortunately sold out.
Went for the ribeye steak with an option of 2 mains. Fries and Mac and cheese were normal. The medium rare ribeye steak was nothing wonderful. It may have been cooked medium rare, but the steak quality wasn’t fantastic, so it really turns out to be what you’d expect, kind of a low quality fast food chain standard, especially for the price. At $19.90, this was one of the priciest items on the menu, together with the crabmeat pasta - which I believe I would have preferred over this underwhelming dish. Other food options were more affordable, and looked seemingly better than this steak. I would love to come back again and try other food items on their menu, especially when this steak did not satisfy my expectations of a rather chill and affordable cafe.

A limited edition drink, coffee milk tea by KOI which comes with 2 toppings of ice cream and coffee jelly. Sadly, you can’t change these toppings, but you do have an option of choosing the kind of milk tea you want - normal, green or oolong milk tea to pair with your coffee. I went with green milk tea, at 0% sugar level.
Whilst I honestly enjoyed it primarily because of how the ice cream gave both a simultaneously icy and creamy texture after it melted into the drink, the coffee essence and flavour seemed very much to have come from the coffee jelly rather than actually coffee in the drink. An overall interesting try, but if you’re expecting something as strong as yuan yang you’ll be better off buying at your Coffeeshop. And if you’re looking for a bubble tea experience, this drink doesn’t allow you to add pearls in it as well. But it is definitely a delight to have ice cream in my milk tea.

Affordable priced, this chendol comes with red bean, pandan jelly and attap seed. Doused in gula melaka syrup, this chendol wouldn’t hurt to have more since some icy parts remained rather tasteless and diluted. Nonetheless, this ensured that the sweetness of this dessert remained optimal. In fact, the ice cream makes up for whatever lack of sweetness the limited gula melaka is unable to provide, elevating it with a creamier kick.
Worth it for the price and setting in an air conditioned food court. Other options of normal chendol and chendol w/ d24 durian purée available too!

From Thye Guan Fried Hokkien Prawn noodles stall.
Loved the wok hei flavour that have a slightly charred taste. For small portion, the portion was relatively huge! Did not have many cockles inside, but more lap cheongs, though I prefer the former. Chilli was pretty solid too. Can request to add more yourself!
Felt that it was pretty delicious for food court standards.

Crisp chicken with fragrant curry sauce. Topped with a fried omelette egg. Decently flavourful, but nothing mind blowing. On the pricier end of food available here.

This iced latte wasn’t bad - the quality is something you’re likely to get in Starbucks. So for $12.90 it is definitely pricey, but expectations must be managed when coming to a concept cafe like this. I understand if a beautifully decorated whipped cream was done to a frappe, but on this cup of iced latte, it seemed pretty out of place and inappropriate. While this was definitely an attempt to sass up the drink, I don’t know if I appreciated it, especially when the cream gave off a blueberry flavour. Still cute tho🤣
They sell the ~limited edition~ hot and cold glass pictured at $14.90 in the shop!
Some of the service staff were pleasant, but some were completely... off.

Think the ice cream cart parked along the streets of Orchard, the chocolate mint slab being blended into a frappe. This was exactly how it tasted, and in fact, even how it looks. While admittedly one has to come here with lowered expectations - come only for the decorations and cute food gimmick (and not actual food quality), this cup of frappe does it’s job. Ultimately, one can observe how there was added effort in beautifying the frappe, with whip cream and other non-descript embellishments. But plus points for the mochi, which was probably an ode to the tapioca balls in Sumikko Gurashi.

Spicy fire chicken with tteok-bokki, baked with cheese.
Cheesy, stringy goodness which complemented really well with the supposedly overwhelming spiciness set by the buldak sauce. The cheesiness seemed to have help take away some of the spice, but this dish still packs the right amount of punch. Enjoyed the overall flavour of it, as well as the combination of Korean rice cakes and chicken. As an iza-bar, Taan seems to offer a ‘tapas’ selection of Japanese and Korean dishes that is best shared with friends. Similarly, I believe that this dish is best shared, especially with its huge amount of cheesiness and spice!

Without the lunch set, the stew alone costs $13. With the lunch set, for $13 you get the stew, a bowl of rice, and a drink.
An unassuming place whipping up a mind-blowingly delicious spicy tofu stew. Right level of spicy, generous amount of seafood - shrimps and clams, and a fair amount of enoki, shiitake mushrooms and vegetables.
I absolutely love spicy tofu stew, and I foresee myself coming back for this, especially when everything was done right😊

Pasta with pollock roe cream sauce and ikura. Amazing flavour to a relatively simple looking dish. Portion may look small, but it is just right for a cream sauce pasta, as any bigger might risk one getting too sick of the overwhelming creaminess. Recommended to share for optimum deliciousness.
