These popcorn chicken bites ($18) are made of fresh chicken thigh battered with a buttermilk and spice mix and served with a trio of dipping sauces (Congo bongo, mango chili marmalade and house made chili).

Personally I like my popcorn chicken big and chunky, and these were unfortunately not that. The meat to batter ratio seemed slightly off. They were piping hot, crispy and seasoned well though and each dipping sauce brought forth its own unique flavor profile. My favorite was the sweet and spicy mango chili marmalade with its refreshing fruity undertones.

This is a huge plate of cauliflower ($15) which has been lightly steamed then crisped up slightly to give a slight blush of brown to these florets. It's lightly sprinkled with dukkha (a herb and spice condiment) and dressed with some Dijon dressing and sunflower seeds.

It was steaming hot and I had to let it cool a bit before I could comfortably tuck into the food. The cauliflower was cooked well with just the right amount of crunch and softness. The Dijon had a slightly sourish tang (which my dining partner disliked but I didn't mind because cauliflower is generally flavorless and it elevated the taste a little) and the sunflower seeds provided a welcome crunch.

Altogether, a rather well thought-out, well put-together vegetable dish perfect for snacking.

Look at this beauty. Okay slightly expensive at $24, I was expecting at least 2 hotcakes for that price.

But we got a thick, fluffy, perfectly browned pancake drizzled with cardamom-infused maple syrup with mixed berries. The pancake is made with Hokkaido milk and ricotta cheese and the rich dairy flavors managed to shine through. It's topped with vanilla bean ice cream and some kind of fruit crisp like a hat. They really put a ton of effort into the presentation, which is appreciated. 👍

Taste-wise, I really liked the airy texture (like a McDonald's hotcake on steroids) and the ice cream melted slightly, making a delicious temperature contrast between the warm pancake and the cold ice cream. The ice cream was of really good quality too; I could actually taste the vanilla bean flavor. The attention to detail is apparent. :)

This dish ($28) consists of chicken thigh cubes in a peanut and habanero-based curry. I was not expecting it to be as spicy as it was wow. I was really looking forward to a rich savory and sweet peanut butter flavor, but unfortunately I didn't taste any. :(

I did however, like the unique creamy, not-too-oily texture of this curry which went very well with the basmati rice it was served with. Chicken was also cooked well and really tender. The portion however, was really small, especially for big eaters. (A recurring problem with the dishes my dining partner and I ordered :/)

The four ristretto shots swirling in the cylindrical glass of chilled Hokkaido milk created an ombre effect and I knew this was going to be a heck of a potent drink ($6), even to my caffeine-ignorant body.

But it was surprisingly very smooth and creamy. The coffee taste wasn't as bold or as bitter as I had imagined. They have their own house blend known as "Ubuntu" and it gave the drink a delicious, rich nutty and cocoa flavor. I really enjoyed this drink and I particularly appreciated that it wasn't served with ice cubes that might have diluted the otherwise perfect coffee and milk ratio.

Kafe UTU specialises in African food but they do serve extremely delicious brunch dishes here. I’m absolutely in love with the ricotta hotcakes here which is made with Hokkaido milk. It’s served with maple syrup, a very fresh selection of berries and a generous scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
