Brew Maison - new cafe on the block!

Brew Maison is a very new cafe opened in March 2014, done in refreshing Japanese  and Korean concept. Don't be fooled by the non-descript door - the spacious interior exudes a very inviting charm, with its sleek whiteness, beautifully objets d'art adorning the walls and cushy white couches. The clean-cut look and good service spells a very successful future for this lovely cafe, for sure.

Their food menu was interesting. You choose your meat, followed by source of carbohydrates (bread? rice? pasta?), followed by the sauce.  It was adorable, and somewhat mysterious.

*Celine had the Pork belly with Pasta and curry sauce lunch (SGD$8.20). The noodles were rather springy and the pork belly slices rather tender. The curry sauce was slightly spicy (I prefer spicier ones) but the overall flavor was good - refreshing but tasty.

Drinks-wise, she had the Goguma Latte - sweet potato latte (SGD$4.00) - an interesting flavor despite its simple outlook. The sweet potato flavor filled the mouth with its aroma - a pity I'd ordered my usual Cuppaccino before I checked with her, lol. I would've loved to have this!

We also shared the Tori Bites (SGD$6.00) - handmade chicken nuggets that comes with fries and sauce (we took the recommended "brown Korean sauce"). The nuggets were crispy and the minced chicken flesh was distinctive (for most nuggets, all we see and taste is the flour) in flavor. The fries were very crispy, and remained crispy at the end of our 2-hours chillout session. The brown sauce was normal - a savoury sauce that added some taste to the fries but nothing to go gaga over.

What a let down!

Brew Maison is a cafe located at Alocassia Apartments, along bukit timah road, just opposite SCGS. From its name, you would be able to tell that it has some affiliations with the Japanese. It is in fact a cafe that is a inspired by a combination of Korean and Japanese, as it was evident from their interior design. The walls were washed with soft pastel colors, which made it seem so much more, well… kawaii and somehow, very inviting. I’ve passed by this cafe on a couple of occasions, and have always wanted to visit them because I’ve seen so much of their latte and foam art online.

I ordered the Taro Latte ($4.20) and as I was feeling a little peckish, I got a Hamago Salad ($4.70). Very affordable prices for their food, but I had to wait for close to 15 minutes for both my food and drink to be ready. At first look, I was pretty disappointed because I would expect the Taro latte to be at least, a little purple, because taro. Besides, even though the food was cheap, I definitely did not expect the salad to look as pathetic as it is, for a WHOOPING $4.70.

The good impression Brew Maison had on me was tarnished by the time the food was ready. Perhaps i haven’t had enough of their food to pass a bad judgement on them, but would I return to give them another shot? I wouldn’t think so. Their menu is rather limited, and the food they serve are pretty common. I believe I would be able to get them at even better prices and taste at a hawker, without all that fluff with the fancy names.

As for their drinks, the highly raved Taro Latte was unfortunately depressing. I felt so cheated and I do hope that their other drinks would taste better. It is undeniably a great place to chill and hang out, however, if you don’t stay in that area, don’t bother going out of your way to visit them. If you’re intrigued by pretty coffee art, or 3d latte art, go to chock full at Changi Village, which would be more worth the time and visit because they serve good food, great desserts, and they don’t need a special schedule just to make your day with a cute latte art.

Latte & Brownie

Korean-inspired Cafe!

The name "Brew Maison" seemed to drop hints that it is in fact Japanese-themed, but one of the staff said that the owner wanted it to be a more Korean-inspired joint. It is also interesting to note that despite it looking very much commercial with the likes of Costa Coffee or St Marc’s, it is actually an independently-owned cafe. The white faux-bricked interior and nature-inspired theme easily puts one into a sanctuary-like environment; definitely soothing for a cafe.
  Since I had a dinner coming up, I thought it would be good if I stuck to a single cake. The Brownie had walnuts in them, and while it is definitely chocolatey, it fell into the pitfall of being a wee bit too dry. It was also crumbly, with bits of it disintegrated as soon as it was served.
  To go along with the Brownie, I went with the Latte. It was aromatic with a medium body and was milky and creamy. Quite a decent cuppa for a place that is not of much western influence.
