Forgot to take photo before dig in. This is indicated as popular item on Deliveroo which indeed was nice. Their Tata source was good as well. On their website menu mentioned dory fish so I dare to order. I am particular the fish I eat. Usually dory or cod fish. Lastly the food arrived not soggy. Happy with my order!

We are back at Communal Place again! This time to try out their French Toast! The thick brioche toast cubes were pan-fried to a nice golden brown and was crispy on the exterior, and super soft and pillowy in the centre. The underside of the toast was smeared with a nice layer of Nutella and is topped with ample Oreo and cookie bits to give the dish that extra crunch. Be sure to spread that cube of butter and drizzle some maple syrup for that extra sweetness and richness of flavour! While this may not the best French Toast we have tasted, it is still worth trying to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Another dish worth mentioning from this café is their perfectly marinated pork chop. The generous portion of meat was accompanied with creamy mash potato, glazed vegetables and interestingly – cranberry sauce. We love how the café chose to use the thicker bone-in pork chop for this dish! This allows the meat to get a nice golden sear and gorgeous caramelised crust on both the sides and edges while retaining its tenderness and juiciness. Additionally, we also loved how it is paired with cranberry sauce for that added sweet and sour profiles, which surprisingly balances out the meaty flavour from the pork. Do note that this dish will take slightly longer to be served, but it is worth the wait and we would most definitely order this again next time!

We were puzzled when we were handed a pair plastic gloves when the dessert was served. Apparently, we were supposed to drop the chocolate dome onto the plate to break it open! We excitedly wore the gloves and playfully dropped the chocolate dome onto the plate. Upon impact, the chocolate scattered beautifully into large chocolate pieces and in the process revealing the other goodies (honeycombs, oreo bits, walnuts and popping candies!) that were hidden in the hollow dome. Due to the popping candies, your mouth will be filled with a crackling sensation as they start to pop, and this interesting addition definitely make the dish more interesting and fun to eat! Don’t forget to drizzle the caramel sauce and condensed milk shots served separately on the side for added sweetness~ This is probably the most memorable dessert experience we have ever encountered! Love how the cafe strives to create a dish that is not just delicious but also visually appealing and fun at the same time! Do come and experience it yourselves!

Nice place to chill especially since we went down on a weekday for lunch. service was good, welcome mocktail was v refreshing! ordered the seafood cream ($19) and a thiccc burger ($20) and both were good! more memorable was the seafood cus i really enjoyed the creamy sauce that went well w the linguineeee. the burger is good but not mindblowing haha would go back to try other dishes!! this place is gr888 because of burpple beyond haha but if u looking for a good pasta cafe place here is good!!

Visited this cafe on a rainy Saturday to have our brunch. Due to the weather, the café is surprisingly less crowded than what we expected. Hence, we were given a huge table in a very cosy corner~ The Miso Salmon served was nicely pan-seared with skin crisped and moisture nicely locked into the tender slab of salmon. The glazed miso on the salmon gave the dish a pleasant sweet and savoury note and we totally love it! This pan-seared salmon is also accompanied by a scoop of creamy mash potato and glazed veggies. Although the mashed potato might be a bit too buttery to our liking, we like how balanced the entire dish is and would order it again the next time we visit!
