Every time we drive out of Dempsey Hill via Dempsey Road, we'll pass by the old abode of Oosh that used to be one of the most hip wine and dine place on Dempsey Hill. The private car park use to be lined with posh marques like Lamborghini and Porsches. Oosh closed down since July 2011. A more tranquil revamp job puts Addictions Cafe in place of Oosh. This cafe is just opened in March 2012 and is already trying to get all of us addicted. We have the honor of "booking the whole space" on Good Friday morning thanks to the late morning downpour. Eat Eat Eat members' turn up was 100% despite the not too ideal weather.

We took comfort in the shelters of the cafe, protected from the downpour. The only misgiving about the place is the use of spot lights. I think spot lights are not friendly for a relaxing meal as they are too harsh on the eyes.

In order to attract family crowds, there must be something on the menu that can appeal to kids. The category of milk shakes was spot on. Which kid would reject a good milk shake? Lactose intolerent ones not included. Here's the Strawberry Milk Shake, smoothly blended and topped with a cherry. I am a coffee person that love peanut and Nutty Coffee Sor, a coffee, peanut butter milk shake, just knocked me flat. Little Vic was supposed to share her strawberry milk shake with J but poor J was mostly deprived. There are 3 more other flavors under their "Virgin Shakes" category. Kids or Adults alike, with these potent shakes, nobody's weaning off milk just yet.

As we were the only group of people in the cafe, there's no doubt that we got perfect service as all attention were put on us. After our meal, the weather cleared up a bit and the little angels among us went out to explore the water feature among the greens.

Crab About You is the Almond Crusted Soft Shell Crab with wilted spinach and hoi sin lim chilli dressing. That was some impressive starter to start us going. It's a big enough portion to share among a few people.

Truffle Fries with Rhubarb Ketchup. There's no need for the Rhubarb Ketchup as the truffle oil and grated parmesan cheese already held it's own. The Rhubarb Ketchup is more perky in sourness than the typical bottled ones. This is another favorites for all the little angels on our table. When I say little angels, it's me included :P Cos I was grabbing away the fries with the little ones until we all thought that another portion was in order.

Nothing seems right, from the food to the service. Great ambience though.

Rants Serious attempts need to be made to improve the quality of the food served, seriously. Addictions also has too big a space to be covered by only a few staff, poor service standards by a team who tries their best.

Will I return again? Food wise, it ain’t the best brunch place. But the restaurant has both outdoor and indoor spaces which are extremely comfy for group gatherings or just a simple relaxing weekend meal. Not sure I will return again though, unless …..

22 Dempsey. It seems like the venue has been cursed, with new tenants moving in, moving out, and then repeating... That is until now. Over the past 6 months, the likes of Carnivore and Addictions Cafe have moved in, making 22 a rather good spot now!

Last week I had the pleasure of heading down for lunch and sampling a variety of their dishes, by new Aussie-Vietnamese Chef Trinh Chi Quang. From first bite, you already know things have changed at 22 Dempsey, and clearly for the better.   Stepping past Carnivore, you have to admire the wide, open space surrounded by lush forestry which encompassed the area. It's really beautiful. The sort of place where you'd imagine weddings taking place.   The food at Addictions has been divided in two, like the Chef, offering a healthy selection of Asian-inspired western dishes, as well as some straight up Vietnamese numbers.   There is really something for everyone, I was particularly impressed by their Cured Salmon Salad; mesclun, edamame and soba noodles, all tossed in a delicious orange, soy dressing. And at $18, it's a proper, hearty salad.
