I find in Singapore there are few establishments I would return to, but this would be one of them.

Not worth it

Walked past this little car or kitchen. Recipe books can be seen displaying outside the kitchen.

It's 11.15am when i reached here and they had jus opened.(chair and tables r jus being pushed out). I WALKED INSIDE and saw a few things on display. The coffee sin cake n molten choc cake. I ordered the coffee sin cake since the molten choc is not meant to be taken away. A little slice like this cost $9.40!Oh my goodness! I hope it taste good.

The coffee sin cake is jus a normal choc cake with rum sauce n i regretted buying it. wHEN I asked them whether it contains any nuts, they told me no. But when i eat it, it's full of almond nibblets n i had to pit it our bit by bit. I think most of the f/less choc cake used almond flour or semolina flour if im not wrong. It's jus a normal pc of cake, not worth the price!

Lousy Customer Service

My companion and I read about this place on a blog review and decided to give it a try for dinner on a Thursday night.

We ordered sausage rings with gherkins ($10) for starters (tapas). The sausages were too salty and not even the mustard and the gherkins could balance out the saltiness.

For the main course, we ordered the Barramundi fish (about $18.80) and and a Duck Confit ($17.50). The duck was quite good, although the portions were a tad too tiny for my male companion's appetite. The fish seemed quite fresh, but apart from that, the taste was not particularly memorable. All in all, I would say that I have had better main courses at far better prices.

For dessert, we ordered the Sticky Date Pudding (about $10.80) which came with a scoop of ice cream and butterscotch. I would say the dessert was not bad although I have not had sticky date puddings elsewhere before so I would not have had a fair comparison to make. According to my companion who has eaten other comparable puddings, the one we ordered was not particularly exceptional and suggested that perhaps the one at Tuckshop (at Bank of China building) might even be better.

What really disappointed me, however, was the inflexibility of the staff who served us. The waitress was helpful, but the two lady owners were not. We had originally planned to takeaway a Carrot Cake ($10.80) and a slice of the Bake of the Day -- Lemon Butter Cake. The Carrot Cake comes with a scoop of ice-cream and so I had requested to have the Carrot Cake without the ice cream and for them to charge me accordingly less. I would have been happy with a discount of $2 or $3 (the menu states that a scoop of ice cream is $4.90). However, the lady boss flatly refused and said that they would serve me the ice cream there and then and pack the cake for me separately. By that time we had already had our meal and were too full to eat any more, and I asked them to explain why I had to pay for something that I'm not eating? They could not give me a satisfactory explanation.

How difficult is it for a business to simply sell me a slice of cake without ice cream and give me a discount of a couple of dollars? Having just returned from Taiwan and been overwhelmed by the high level of service, I am sorely disappointed with the attitudes of the staff that served me at 25 Degree Celsius. Businesses should learn that no matter how good you think your food might be, you will not get returning customers if you cannot even get the basics of customer service right.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned

Have fun with food as foreplay, and these items are easily bought at supermarkets. Just be mindful of allergies (gas and rashes are no fun) and be prepared to sacrifice the sheets
