Cafés To Cafés

Not that rich to go cafe hopping, but when I do want to spend on food, I like to read up about the place before going, so that I won't order the flops. Here's my review of what I ordered at these cafés!

Crispy fried chicken chunks that were flavourful and easy to eat. The waffle came looking impressive - tall and well browned, and indeed it was crispy outside, fluffy inside. The batter is on the sweet side, closer in taste to pancakes. Douse the maple syrup for added sweetness though I find the waffle to be good enough on its own.

Was quite surprised by how good this was. The lamb was well marinated, very fragrant with the rosemary, had a good texture (not chewy at all), and slightly pink in the middle. Very solid lamb cutlet, what more at $15! Served with a smooth mash and lightly herbed boiled vegetables. Tried a bit of the ribeye steak as well. While it was slightly on the thin side, the smokey grilled taste was on point!

Fresh mussels and clams in white wine and butter sauce. Would be better if there was some bread to mop up all the delicious sauce!

Large portion of cheese fries with a truckload of cheese sauce for only $6! Perfect with their ice cold Golden Ale. They are having a 1 for 1 beer promotion till the end of the month so hurry!

Crispy crab cakes with a spicy béchamel filling. Seasoning is a bit heavy but I loved it! The hollandaise sauce was a bit too tart but the crab cakes were absolutely fine on their own. Great appetiser to get! Priced at $15.

Lamb chop was average, wasn't cut cleanly though as there were some bone splinters. The mint yogurt and apricot bits felt out of place. Cous cous was rather dry and oily. Overall not something I would get again. Priced at $15.

Scrambled egg was done pretty nicely. The guacamole tasted woody and stale. The pumpkin seeds adds a nice texture to the toasted multigrain bread. Priced at $10.

Very much enjoyed the mac and cheese. Chunks of tender and juicy chicken with an assortment of portobello and shimeji mushrooms. The seasoning is similar to what you will find in gourmet sausages and it complements the creamy sauce well. Topped with chicken skin which resembles chicken floss in taste. $14 well spent!

Quite a light version of cottage pie. The potato and cheese seems to be blended into a foam like consistency and you don't get the heaviness of it here. Ground meat was good, with a light seasoning. Reasonably priced at $14 nett. On weekdays, the lunch set is $16 which comes with a coffee of your choice.

The truffle mac and cheese was good! Strong aroma of truffle with gooey cheese and shimeji mushrooms. The American buttermilk fried chicken came with two large slabs of chicken. Heavily marinated with various spices, the full on flavours together with the sweet maple syrup proved to be too heavy as it got sickening after a while. Quite disappointed with the hand cut fries as it was soggy and tasted like potatoes used for stews. They are currently having a 50% off second mains on Wednesday!

Delicious fried soft shell crab which had plenty of roe! Chunks of crab meat thrown in as well. The cheese was amazing but the rice was a letdown as it was a bit grainy. For the portion, it's pretty worth it at $25++.

Fresh seafood with an array of prawns, squids, mussels and tempura white bait. The prawns were a bit overcooked though, being slightly tough. The squid ink pasta was rather bland, but was saved by the bird chillies and tempura which brought the dish to life. Get this if you are in the mood for something light. Priced at $25++.
