Finally visited Habitat Coffee's latest location after it moved out of the neighbourhood along Upper Thomson Road.

The new interior at Lavender with its curved rims & high ceiling brought about a different look to the venue.

On the menu, they had expanded it quite a fair bit, catering to the all-day dining folks & those popping by just got tea & snacks.

We decided to order their Poutine Fries as I was feeling a lil' peckish & it's something that most places would not offer. The generous portion of brown sauce is ladled over crispy shoestring fries and topped with grated parmesan. While it was slightly salty (really slight), having a couple of plain fries without the gravy does help to balance out the saltiness a little.

On the side, wash it down with your coffee of choice, or with the variety of sweets!

Scrambled egg w a light truffled taste. Interesting combi with grilled salmon and sourdough

Nice combi. Rare to find matcha lava cake around.

Sat in the center of a pool of treacly sweet toffee sauce studded with walnuts was a moist and crumbly cake crowned with a huge scoop of vanilla ice cream. Some might argue this was too sweet, but I say that's just the way a sticky date pudding is meant to be and I loved it.

Taste: 3.5/5

Most thick hot cakes in cafes are actually cakey - which I don’t like - instead of having a pancake texture. This was fluffy, moist and like pancake! Very filling, good for sharing and pretty tasty with cream cheese, fresh and dried berries, flax and pumpkin seeds and walnuts.

Reg cappuccino was strong but slightly acidic so get the large if you want a weaker cuppa as both has 2 shots of espresso.

Didn’t really cross my mind that I wanted to check out Habitat Coffee which had recently made their move out of Upper Thomson Road and into their new digs at King George’s Avenue near Lavender MRT Station — it all happened after taking a short walk down from a coffeeshop that I was intending to dine at, but ended up skipping on since it was too difficult to find a seat and I just wanted to settle somewhere for a light dinner.

The Chili Crab Mantou is served as a side here, which speaks of its portion size as depicted — I only found out subsequently after walking around the neighbourhood that Chye Seng Huat Hardware does serve up a rendition of the same dish as a main, though at a price of $22 before taxes (this one from Habitat Coffee is priced at $12 before taxes). Nonetheless, this works perfectly well for those who enjoys having the fried mantous with chili crab sauce, but are too lazy to deal with the crab (i.e. me 🙋🏼) — a perfect item to have at the table to share or even have alone whilst having a leisurely read with a cuppa. Coming with five pieces of fried mantou, the top piece does come with a dollop of truffle-infused mayo — an addition that is likely included only for mere aesthetic purposes rather than for its flavour. The fried mantous were pretty “meh” in my opinion; it has that sweet crunch and isn’t particularly greasy, though it lacks that structural integrity of fried mantous typically served at seafood restaurants that are served with chili crab — you know how some just simply stays firm and in shape even after taking on a bite. That being said, the focus here seems to be much on the chili crab dip — it’s sufficiently sweet and tangy; not too tomato-ey and feels like the de-facto chili crab sauce that we have come to love; quite on par with those served at seafood restaurants. What amazes me here is the generous amount of crab meat they had provided for just five pieces of deep-fried mantous; there is definitely enough to go around, not to mention scooping the sauce and meat out of the bowl using a spoon just to enjoy it as-is — pretty impressive for such a dish that is served in a cafe setting.

Noticed that Habitat Coffee does seem to be a little more playful and innovative in their menu here than they were previously at Upper Thomson Road — another one of the dishes that we found intriguing being listed on the menu includes the Pasta Lemak; essentially a pasta dish influenced by Nasi Lemak where they had replaced the rice with a “coconut skinny spaghetti “, which is served with chicken wings, fried anchovies, peanuts, egg and sambal. Given the direction they have taken with the move to King George’s Avenue, I am inclined to make my revisit here again soon to check out the other new dishes that they have to offer.
