LIMGW FIRST POST - CAFE REVIEWS Part 1
Welcome to limgw first blog post!! It is not my first time blogging but I have been on a hiatus for about 3 to 4 years and I guess it is time for me to blog again.
For my first post, I would be be blogging about 3 different cafes that I have been to. I would carry on with the rest another time.
1. I AM Cafe
674 North Bridge Road
There are 3 good thing about this cafe.
It is relatively hard to find a HALAL cafe since most of them serves all-day breakfast which includes bacon. Thus, this is a good choice if you are hanging out with your Muslim friends.
I ordered the traditional Egg Benedict and I strongly recommend this dish if you are eating there.
The taste is justifiable and the price is just right too. The hollandaise sauce is rich and the poached egg is not too bad.
Another of their ''MUST HAVE'' is the rainbow crepe cake. It taste just like any other ordinary cakes out there that you can buy at any shopping centers but i guess you can take nice pictures with it so worth a try?
It's still a chio Rainbow Crepe Cake nevertheless.
What my friends ordered there.
This cafe adopted an open concept which means that it is not air-conditioned! On the day of my visit, it was drizzling and we were arranged to sit outside. Tough luck!
One bad thing about the cafe is that it is located along the road and it is super noisy during peak hours.
However, it is still worth a visit if you pass by there.
Roughly $18 - $20 per person
2.Cups N Canvas
139 Selegie Road
Tues to Thurs: 10.30am-10pm
Fri to Sat: 10.30am-11pm
Monday: Cafe Closed
Cups N Canvas is an art-studio like cafe. Personally, I feel like it is a perfect place to chill with your friends or to read a book. The ambiance is good and they serve pretty nice food. Also, they provide good services too as the staffs were all hanging smiles on their faces.
The artwork in the cafe definitely gave a lot of 'plus points'to the cafe itself and it is something that makes them stand out from the rest of the cafes. Like most cafes, they are located along the stretch of shop-houses. A point to note that, although they provide pretty good service, ordering as well as payments are self-service
My friends and myself all ordered the same item (as you can see form the picture). Breakfast Canvas is one of the more popular dish. The serving was generous and is taste pretty good for the price we pay. The breakfast includes Sunny Effs, Bacon, Bratwurst Pork Sausage, Roasted Potatoes, Mushrooms, Cherry Tomatoes and Toast.The only complaint I have is that the cherry tomatoes was a little bit too sweet for my liking. The potatoes and mushrooms are well seasoned. It's just sex on a fork!
Their Sweet Potato Latte is one of their specialty too so be sure to try it.
In essence, Cups N Canvas is one of the cafes that you should put it on your list if you are going cafe-hopping.
Roughly $20- $25 per person
Tues to Fri: 11am - 3pm, 5.30pm - 10.30pm
Sat, Sun and PH: 9am - 4pm, 5.30pm to 10.30pm
So lastly, I would be talking about GRUB. This place is really very inconvenient! We took the bus and we had no idea which bus stop to alight so we alighted randomly only to realise that we are at the other end of Bishan Park (apparently I think it's quite big).
That's me and Joleen still trying to act cool under the hot sun when we are lost and dead hungry. So we decided to take the cab there and we got scolded by the taxi uncle because it was only like a 1.5 mins ride and we still wanna use GPS to tell the uncle how to get there. I think the taxi meter didn't even jumped once. LOL
I think the cafe is super cool and it gives me a cottage feel. There is both outdoor and indoor seats and brunch closes at 3.30pm so be sure to arrive early or you might have to move outdoors even in the midst of eating as they have to start preparation for dinner.
Well, I feel that the food here are all too dry.
The good thing about the crispy fish burger was the presentation as well as the serving. I expected more since it is one of the cafe's specialty.
The pasta taste alright but I feel it is a bit too expensive.
The Churros was was decent. The chocolate sauce was too diluted but the tangy creme anglaise was refreshing.
It was just a little overrated. But still decent.
If you guys are looking for nice Churros, the one at Holland Village is good (located beside Crystal Jade).
To sum up, good service but average food.
Roughly $20 - $23 per person.
And my OOTD for the day with my new top which I got from Bugis Street at super cheap prices! :)))))
