For Your Cafe Hopping Pleasure

Many cafes open & close in Singapore, but which deserve to stay??

Just the other day, I was in my neighborhood Starbucks, due to the fact that there was no other decent coffee alternatives. I was trying to enjoy a chocolatey cafe mocha when it occurred to me that to drink a mocha is to gulp down the entire history of the New World. .
.
From the Spanish exportation of Aztec cacao, and the Dutch invention of the chemical process for making cocoa, on down to the capitalist empire of Hershey, PA, Cadbury and the lifestyle marketing of Seattle's Starbucks, the modern mocha is a bittersweet concoction of imperialism, genocide, invention, and consumerism served with whipped cream on top. Yikes.
.
This Cuppa however was made by my buddy @koalamii which was a lifetime ahead compared to the evil corporation that is Starbucks which sadly is slowly taking over the world. At least get our names right, for God’s sake.

Many pictures and positive reviews have been circulating around regarding this dish at Firebake thus it’ll be a wasted trip not to try it out, especially with the new @burpple Burpple’s Beyond 1 for 1 Deals. Basically you’d have another Main dish for free and pays for the one with a higher price tag. .
.
Cooked al dente, each angel hair pasta was covered in the generous amount of prawn oil and Sakura Ebi. This is better than many pasta places out there, but I’d appreciate it even more if there’s an option to make it spicy, then it’ll be complete.

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: Probably the most standard sticky date pudding around, reliable but not comparable. Especially to the likes of the ones at Artichoke @artichoke_sg and The Lokal @thelokalsingapore . Smooth and not so sweet vanilla bean ice cream, the sticky date pudding wasn’t dry and pretty tasty.
.
Gosh, one come to a point that’s challenging to describe about food. There’s only this amount of vocabulary, the Pudding was fragrant and moist, moist?! Cut to the chase, it was decently satisfying.

The pickled mushrooms was a little turn off as it has a lingering tastes that’s a tad too sweet. Standard hummus, go to either Artichoke or Pita Bakery for the best hummus. .
.
The almond dukkha isn’t pronounced enough, although the portobello mushroom brings the umami earthiness. However, the toasted grain toast was soggy due to it being placed under the humongous portobello. If you ain’t a vegan, order something else.

Pretty much the same case here. .
.
Thought the plating is beautiful and yes we do eat with our eyes first which makes one anticipate even more. However the donut is a little tough and dry, got excited about the crushed Tim Tam’s but can’t taste anything maybe it’s crushed that’s why but what’s the point, the ice cream, normal. The service is good though.

The different textures play well together with the right level of richness. It leaves you wanting for more instead of just being a one biter. There’s an option for a slice and different sizes of cake, get the cake for the next celebration, any celebration will do, it’s time to move up from the Leaves Choco Exotic.

Babaganoush (💵S$10) Smoked eggplant, sesame, yogurt, pomegranate molasses teriyaki.
-
Iraqi spiced mushrooms (💵S$12) Fried egg purée, parmesan.
-
Ispanak (💵S$12) Spinach, Labneh, fried onions, plum. .

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: With @bjornshen back at the kitchen with the new revamped menu, things can only get more delicious at the already dope @artichokes . All of the Mezze dish are truly outstanding, especially the babaganoush with the different textures and flavours complimenting each other so bloody well. .
.
The rich and creamy spinach was balanced beautifully with the sweet yet tangy plum. They also serve one of the most badass hummus in town. Order a side of Turkish Bread (💵S$4.50) to dip in all their Mezze which I encourage you to get and firstly cos every each of them is dope, secondly the shared plates might take awhile to arrive.

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: Those who know me, even a little bit, will be familiar with my unholy attraction, addiction & affection to the meat mutant that is the hotdog. Especially when it’s home and hand made with natural casings, served with caramelised sautéed onions. 🤤
.
A good hotdog bun doesn’t need the extra sauce on the side, however the mustard and tomato relish levitates the umami level with every bite. This little hidden gem is part deli, part cafe, part butchery and party grocer. If there’s a place I’d totally go bonkers and fall in love for, this will be it. 🔖

I love them with a passion, an unhealthy one. It’s an unforgivable, unforgettable even sin when it’s not executed well, which is the case for this particular one. 🔖
.
Not being crispy enough is a cardinal sin by itself, the buttermilk has little to no flavour, coupled with a few sad pieces of wine poached pear, the crunchy walnut and decent vanilla bean ice cream is the only redeeming factor. But truth be told, where can I get ice cream with waffles at 12 am?

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: It was described that their house blend has tasting notes of stone fruit, milky chocolate and a nutty finish. My palate certainly aren’t that sensitive to detect those flavours and I honestly don’t really care, I just need a good Cuppa for my soul and the all important caffeine. 🔖
.
Either than their house blend, they offer other blends that you should check it out. With offerings like filtered coffee, cold brew and their always reliable pastries.

@hustlecosg - Brunch - Steak & Eggs (💵S$23) 160g Ribeye Steak, Fried Egg, Roasted Potato, Avocado, Toast. 🥩

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: Steak was done medium to almost medium well even though we requested for medium rare however, it remains moist with charred edges and the size you get for the price you pay, I’d say it’s fairly economical.
Minimum seasoning was added to the entire dish hence the table side salt and pepper, which allows you to chose either the “your body is a temple” healthy route or “Life is short, Live Fast Die Young” moto. 🔖
.
Hustle Co. Prices are nett, no service charge or gst. And if healthy isn’t the route you chose in life, forget the substandard coffee, go straight to the craft beers they have on tap. There is no law or rules that states what time one should start drinking. Cheers🍺

Cafe @pscafe - To Start or To Share - PS. Truffle Shoestring Fries (💵S$15) Truffle Oil, grated Parmesan, parsley. 🍟

ACAMASEATS & GTK💮: Screw Monday Blues, have a mountain of Truffled Fries topped with a generous amount of parmesan to chase it away. Even thought how much I detest Truffle oil, one just can’t deny the aroma of it. 🤤
.
Known for their truffle fries, I find it rather normal compared to others, nothing much to shout about or rave its just a good bowl of fried shoestring fries with truffle oil. 🔖
