With a recent menu revamp, this salted pear french toast had replaced the once banana salted caramel french toast. Though listed under ‘sweets’, this came with a savoury twist- a surprise element sandwiched within (swipe to view)! ✨ Wasn’t expecting a layer of melted mozzarella within the two soft and fluffy brioche. The toast came with slightly crisp golden brown edges and salted caramel sauce that added a pleasant tinge of sweetness but would have been better if the saltiness was more distinct and lingering. Though the french toast is sufficiently moist and pillowy, it would have been great if it was coated with more egg batter for a more distinctive fragrance. Topped with sliced bananas and a salted pear, the toast also came with pecans and crunchy nut granola that provided a pleasant crunch factor. I love how the pear is soft and well-poached, still retaining a natural pleasant fruity sweetness, though I didn’t detect any saltiness in it as the name suggests. The vanilla ice cream (which I requested to be served separately) was smooth, creamy with a luscious, milky flavour. An optional addition that makes no significant difference with or without its presence. Not sure if this was a good thing or so but the presence of all the sweet elements, typically the salted caramel had overwhelmed the mozzarella cheese, which failed to unleash its characteristic savoury, salty factor .

On a side note, though the toast was not too bad after all, it wasn’t exactly worth a 45 minute wait. Furthermore, there seemed to be a miscommunication going on during my visit, giving me false hope for the 3 times I enquired upon my one and only order. 5-10 minutes turned out to be 20 and this cycle just repeated itself twice😂 . I certainly wouldn’t mind waiting if I was told the correct waiting time prior to that, but given the 3x of wrong info, it just ruined the overall dining experience. .
