I haven't really had pancakes since Strictly Pancakes closed. The Pumpkin Pancake with poached eggs, smoked salmon, hollandaise and tobiko roe was truly a fluffy and savoury delight. I don't really like pumpkins to begin with but what this cafe has worked some magic here.

My friend created her own plate with scrambled eggs, halloumi cheese and sautéed mushrooms. The portions are sufficiently generous and the halloumi cheese was a highlight. I didn't know that fried cheese would taste good by itself.

Enjoyed the black garlic tonkatsu udon at last night's dinner. The staff's service was also commendable. Certainly helped to hold off my travel lust for Japan.


The Creme Caramel was only offered in the Burrple promo set. Despite its namesake, the pudding wasn't overly sweet and the caramel seemed to faintly taste of coffee. Would be glad to see it become a permanent item on the menu.

I'm not familiar with Vietnamese Cusine but the Chicken Pho was pretty refreshing as it was light on the palate. The Summer Tea was quite reminiscent of the grass jelly drink though.

Coffee Hazelnut Yule Log, Light Butter Cream, Caramelized Hazelnut, Citrus Ice Cream

Had a little bite of this too. Would be glad to have this as a log cake on a separate day (not after the steak).

Side note: the candle provides some of the best lighting for photography as the restaurant is dimly lit (hence the cave reference).

Warm Butterscotch Apple Crumble, Oats, Almonds, “Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream”

I was excited to try this as it was highly recommended. The fruity taste provided a great contrast to the savoury steak. Sadly, the sweetness got me in a food coma when I was halfway through this dessert.

New York Sirloin (U.S.D.A. PRIME, Illinois Corn Fed, Aged 21 days) (medium rare, house amde steal sauce)

I decided to get the New York Sirloin without incurring additional charges. While steak typically saturates my taste buds, the hardwood scent and occasional dip in the house made steak sauce meant that I finished the steak without getting a food coma. I have now developed a weakness for steal grilled over hardwood and charcoal.

The sides such as Wild Field Mushrooms with Shishito Peppers, Creamed Spinach with Fried Organic Egg and Peewee Potatoes, “Patatas Bravas” Garlic Aioli were great too. But honestly, I would recommend saving your stomachs for the steak.

Maryland Blue Crab Cake, Heirloom Tomato Relish, Basil Aioli

Had my company's Christmas Dinner here yesterday night and was recommended the crab cake by one of my bosses. It was arranged artistically and has a diversity of flavours. Personally, I'm not a fan of crabs but still enjoyed this dish.

Meatball linguine not bad. Good mix of spiciness and tomato flavours. Wagyu slices were rather tough, not sure if it’s the cutting, preparation time or meant to be like that hm. Mushrooms were good tho

I usually avoid soft-serve ice-cream but would pick this coffee softcream over gelato.

The Wafu pasta was topped generously with really large prawns.
