The peanut butter ganache and the choc ganache was decent and melded well, but the oat coconut base thing had a lousy texture and doesnt hold its shape at all. Come for the flavour

Not very memorable cream sauce, the chicken breast was not too bad but not stellar either. There's barely any lemon though

Probably not authentic, it's basically a porridge with a hint of spices. The ckn chunks were tender and of considerable size.

As with all of their items, it's a very safe execution

Not too bad, quite creamy with some complexity from the capers and nuts. Some might be thrown off because of the various ingredients tho, even tho they're reasonably mild.

It's called Mexican quesadillas but that's abit redundant, why wouldnt they call their other items Indian khichdi or Italian pizza?

It's alright, I think pretty overhyped. Skin was passably crispy, there's a good pool of cheese in the middle, but they mixed up our add-on(we ordered prawn).

Potatoes were very overhyped, it's decent, some pieces has crispy skin, but they were few and far between. I don't think it's a fluke because the potatoes accompanying the ckn breast was the exact same standard.

What stunned here was actually the guac. It's very thick, creamy, and flavourful. Idk if they mix other stuff in or it's just that they have super high quality avocados

Basically tastes like butter cake, with sharp lemon-ness occasionally. It's not distributed evenly at all, some parts are very sour and other parts tastes exactly like plain pound cake.

Not very impressive

Their gelatos are vegan. Does that actl qualify it as a gelato? The texture is more a melty ice cream tho. Have to say I really enjoyed the matcha ice cream, somehow it wasn't anywhere near as strong as I expected it and quite friendly tbh. Not b bitter at all, and there's something to it which makes it tastes abit different from normal, its probably wtv is substituted for cream

Warabi mochi is alright, it's chewy which goes well w the ice cream

She said this isnt like the normal, there wasn't a layer of white and it doesn't taste the same either

However to me this is still pretty good. Even tho it sounds super basic it's actl a very well done, super Japanese drink befitting the sadou(way of tea) decor. Bitterness wasn't overwhelming, and the hint of sweetness makes it very pleasant. One possible complaint is that the matcha takes the forefront, so it wasn't balanced if that's what you're expecting.

The choux pastry had a hard crisp and cuts like cardboard. I like it, can't rlly rmb if it's exactly the same at the tanjong pagar outlet.

However the filling is different. That was extremely milky but this was more custardy, there's a very strong sweetness and a prominent enough custard taste. Not too bad, but not as mindblowingly good as the tanjong pagar's one

A good hot choc. Frothy and creamy mouthfeel, with a muted sweetness and evident chocolatey-ness. I liked it

THEIR COFFEE CAKE IS NO MORE

don't get how this basic place is still so popular, nor why the cake was removed, but I guess that's most cafes honestly.

This almond milk thing is revolting to me, it's so bad two of us taking turns barely finished it, we really wanted to just leave half there. I guess only true coffee lovers will appreciate

The pudding itself was quite artisanal, in that it wasn't v sweet, and has almost a sort of bitterness to it. The texture was closer to a cake, quite light and there's a surprising amount of spring. Sauce was average and ice cream was fine, overall it's decent but not worth travelling for.

Surprisingly they're still packed during weekday lunch, people really love their coffee. Crowd seems quite atas so maybe it's just their pedigree drawing ppl in

Would travel for food
