It was a full loop, where we took the shuttle service from IMM back to Westgate, and decided to end our night at Paul Bakery, which was just next to Cafe Crema.
We got ourselves a lovely 2-seater by the corner, and we liked the pleasant environment!
Hubby had an original Shakerato ($7.50++), which was served with whipped cream. This version was quite nice, though not as strong as the one we had in Hong Kong.
My Rosemary Lime Iced Tea ($7.50++) was very refreshing, and quite light in flavour.
Most of the tarts and cakes were sold out by 9pm, so we settled for a Raspberry Tart ($7.90++). We enjoyed the nice balance of sweet and tartness, and the pastry was deliciously buttery.
Note that iced and warm water was served for free, which was great, because we were so thirsty despite our drink 😛
With this lovely supper, we ended our day trip to the West 🙂
We did a journey to the West today, after casting our vote for the future (or the next 5 years) of Singapore!
Did some shopping at JEM before heading over to Westgate for a bite.
In the end, Cafe Crema caught our eye, because we were in need of some good coffee!
Hubby ordered a Flat White ($6 inclusive of GST) and we shared the Big Bad Wolf ($16).
The Flat White was served in a huge cup! Smooth and slightly acidic, it was not bad. But there was no latte art, so hubby was a bit sad… How come we see so many pictures of coffee with latte art here? On hindsight, maybe we should have tried the signature Piccolo Latte.
The Big Bad Wolf was huge, and perfect for sharing. Use your hands and stuff everything into your mouth; the combination of breaded pork cutlet, smoked ham, crispy bacon, egg mayo, and buttered Brioche, was simply awesome. Taken apart, they don’t taste quite as good. The sandwich came with a side serving of chips (like those potato chips in a bag), and a salad with a slightly sweet but rather addictive dressing.
Note: Water is freely available at the side station.
