Hawaiian Pork Chops

I enjoyed their Hawaiian Pork Chops. The chops were tender, and it was very juicy. I also tried their dessert, which was the brownie. It was too sweet for me. The service staff took some time to respond to my needs but I think it might have been because there were quite a lot of people in the restaurant at that time.

The restaurant was generally huge and spacious, good for gatherings. Perhaps make a reservation first to ensure your group has enough seats to sit together! 

I had the Bananarama waffle at $11.90. The bananas are topped with caramel, and it gives a very sweet taste. The waffle in general.. wasn't up to expectation. To be honest, this could be one of the worse waffle I've ever tried. I will definitely not come back for their waffle. I've tried their ice cream brownie before, slightly better than this but the more you eat, the more sick you get due to the overwhelming sweetness in it. 

The trio meat lover's platter at $21.90 was a average. Comes with ribs, sausages and chicken chop. I would say that's quite a few varieties in a plate. In fact this dish was meant for 2 pax to share. I guess it's fine if a person can finish everything in this plate, because the meat were generally smaller in size. Nonetheless, my brother told me the meat taste good.  
Nothing much about cafe cartel's main dishes that I would like to comment about. All I know is this place probably isn't good for lunch. Their main dishes are not really up to standard. Their happy hour (9pm) where all snacks and desserts are going at half price would probably be more worth it. Haha!

It'd been ages since I dined at The Café Cartel the last time, which was perhaps sometime during my JC 1 days. I tried Soup of the Day, Garlic Bread, Bruschetta PlatterHawaiian Pork ChopsSeafood Macaroni, Urban Bread Pudding and Iced Peach Tea.


I was craving for their Seafood Macaroni the other day. The cream-based macaroni came with breaded fish slices, prawns, squid rings and bell peppers. It was al dente for sure, although I wished they'd be more generous with the amount of mozarella cheese for added stickiness and flavour. The sauce itself was creamy and savoury enough, although I'm not sure if it was better in the past.


Oh, yes, I've come to realise that the restaurant no longer serves free of charge, free flow bread anymore. Sigh...
