Check out that theatrics! This dish was a full course meal by itself, and the best part is you get a savoury main as well as a sweet dessert (picked the blue sea salt ice cream) served on the same plate. Not forgetting a feast for the eyes as well. For serious mentaiko lover only.

This one’s purely to showcase what else I got on my first and last visit to the place. Well actually, this was what my cousin, who tagged along, got for herself. I did remember thinking halfway through my toast that the waffles would probably taste better than it. 🙃

[Permanently Closed] I have to be honest – this was one of the cases of the food looking better than it tastes. I can’t give you a very detailed review as to how it tasted, because it’s been 3 months since I had this. I do remember it being passable, yet I also recall it missing a spark or a unique quality.

The way this fort-looking stuffed thick toast is presented makes it so confident, towering and decadent that you just want to bust it open at once. But once you do that, you’re greeted with well…disappointment. In other words, the molten chocolate lava hardly oozed when I had it, which I immediately thought was a red flag.

Then when you get to tasting the toast itself, you’re even more nonplussed at how dull it is – for something that looked as beautifuly constructed as this, it was awfully run-of-the-mill in taste. The Matcha gelato, which was hardly creamy at all, didn’t serve to amp it up either, which reinforced my impression of how unremarkable this was. But I guess it could have been because I came with the expectation that it’d match up to their predecessor’s, Meet & Melt, standards. Perhaps I should have gone for the one that they heavily advertised – their Mentaiko and Raclette Cheese toast.

Then again, I wonder what is the real point of this monologue when the place has ceased operations at the last day of last year. (5.8/10)

Very generous with the mentaiko, but a bit too overwhelming, Toast was really good and nicely fried.

The amusement of watching your food flame torched in front of you is already worth the price (as long as my phone doesnt catch fire). Glad to report its just as yummy as it looks. Savoury and creamy mentaiko on top of buttery toast with a cold scoop of sea salt ice cream. Heavenly.

We went for the creme brulee waffles instead of the toast. Waffles had a nice crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside, just the way it should be. We added 2 scoops of ice cream - Pistachio and Earl Grey. The ice cream was good too. Total damage for this visit was $14.30 inclusive of service charge.
