We had originally wanted to visit this place before we got sidetracked and went to C.A.N Cafe instead, so here we are today to try it out!
The decoration was rather rustic with simple chairs and tables (and simple toilet).
The menu was rather strange and n the sense that some teas were listed under “caffeine addicts”, while others were listed under “tea”, so I guess Earl Grey does not contain much caffeine? Anyway, I opted for the Chai Latte ($5) instead of the Thai milk tea ($7) because the former was hot while the latter was cold. Hubby went along with his usual Skinny Latte ($5).
Well, sad to say that Nescafe Gold Class tasted better and was more aromatic, while I had the most un-chai latte in my life. In fact, I thought it tasted more like Thai milk tea; it was so sweet! Very strange drinks… We could only hope that our mains will be more promising, and not too exotic.
Hubby decided on Pancakes with Roasted Duck and Garlic Hoisin Crispy Eggs ($12.90), while I decided to try the Waffles with Crispy Fried Chicken Tenders ($11.90).
Unfortunately, after more than 30 minutes of waiting, we had under-cooked waffles with slightly crispy exterior but barely warm insides. The slaw was quite nice, and the chicken was quite flavourful and tender, with a hint of curry taste. I thought that at least there was something good about the dish… Until I saw that the middle of the chicken tenders were slightly under-cooked with a pale pinkish colour 😮
The pancakes were destroyed by too much hoisin sauce, resulting in overly salty and sweet pancakes, that could have been made more crispy… Again, it seemed under-cooked. The shreds of duck meat was alright and the fried eggs were just very oily and not at all aromatic.
For once, we totally agree with the poor reviews at Hungrygowhere! The only redeeming part about the meal was that hubby took very lovely pictures of the food. We are quite sure that we will not return to this place again.
