Halibut Fish & Chips ($19) Yeah i know, i can’t believe i’m back so fast too. And there’s no burpple beyond. Honestly it’s not that the food is fricking amazing but I do think it’s a very decent cafe all things considered. No GST/service charge, clean and sunlit environment, gets noisy because it’s so packed all the time but I only waited 10 minutes for my food. The fish and chips this time didn’t taste as good as I remembered - the halibut was not as sweet and substantial but at least the batter was crispy. Their fries though were still done to my liking - not sure if it’s the type of potato they use but it was more fragrant than average. And i love the purple cabbage slaw and their tartar, latter being tart enough. I’m hoping this dish will be back to its former standards the next time i’m back!! 2 big pieces of halibut please.
“Who Spilled The Jam?” Cute dish name! But it took super long to come. We went at 2pm and it only arrived at 2.30pm, long after we had devoured our other main 😩 Asked them twice to check on our order but they didn’t get back to us either 🤷🏼‍♀️ Overall presentation was really cute with a miniature jar “spilt” on top! But the brioche toast was just meh, didn’t really have much taste.
Duck Confit Hash ($20.50) This was alright! I was really impressed by all three dishes (Halibut Fish & Chips, Truffle Mac & Cheese, Eggs Florentine) the first time I went so I would say I had high expectations when I visited the second time. The duck was seasoned nicely. I appreciated the sprinkle of spice (idk what it was though) atop the eggs which would otherwise have been pretty tasteless. But that’s what you get for poached eggs I guess. The hash though was surprisingly bland - salt seems to have been omitted. It’s overall an alright dish, although I now think duck confit is best served as a duck leg haha. I’ll still be back to try other dishes!
