Wagyu beef slices with a quinoa and pearl barley base; topped with edamame beans, sauteed mushrooms, kimchi beansprouts, cherry tomatoes, sliced cucumbers and an onsen egg. Reminds me of a healthy western version of the korean bibimbap. Unfortunately, i didn’t like the combination of the quinoa and barley base as it got quite slimy in texture. I would say its probably an acquired taste. Other than that, the rest of the ingredients were fresh and the wagyu beef was tender but lacking in flavour.

The flavour and texture of this dish wow-ed me at the first bite. The chicken cutlet was freshly fried and was super crispy, tender and not oily at all. Underneath that huge chicken cutlet was a bed of korean chewy noodles mixed with Gochujang sauce, mushrooms and the shredded cucumber added an extra crunch with each bite. The QQ and chewy texture of the noodles was so good and sauce had a nice spiciness level (sweet and spicy). Topped with a sunny side-up egg! What more can i ask for? 😉

Can’t decide on coffee or tea? How about both?? 😉 This drink is one part matcha, one part milk and one part espresso (coffee)! Tastewise, it had a very interesting blend. At first sip, you’ll taste the coffee and there after the fragrance and bitterness of the matcha hits your tastebuds and leaves you with a bitter aftertaste of both the coffee and matcha. Also noteworthy is that this cafe has very nice industrial themed decor and has friendly staffs 😊

frozen compressed espresso, served with warm milk and 10ml of balvenie whisky 😋

new lifestyle concept store by music brand Swee Lee at the star vista - music x lifestyle x cafe. the social club cafe uses beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters - the flat whites were smooth, creamy and had a nutty finish ☕️😌

surprisingly refreshing - light yet bitter with citrus notes at the end. the sweet cream toned down the citrus-y afternotes and smoothened out the overall coffee taste.
