Hoshino Coffee (Plaza Singapura)

This Japanese coffee import specializes in hand-dripped coffee, which is lighter and cleaner in taste as compared to kopi and the espresso drinks that we are familiar with. A must try is the plump and fluffy souffle pancake served with fruits, ice cream, whipped cream and drizzled with maple syrup.

Fluffy soufflés!! Gotta catch em all!

Located on the third floor extension of Plaza Singapura, is Hoshino Coffee, a popular Japanese chain of coffee shop. I wanted to try this so badly at Shibuya but time did not allow. So back here in Singapore, I decided to go all out and try it!! 7 soufflés ordered and here goes my personal soufflé buffet!! "Gotta catch em all!"

Now that is supposedly Spring in Japan, even though my Japanese friends told me it snowed last week and it's currently 6 degrees celsius in Tokyo, the Spring menu for Hoshino coffee includes this super pretty pink  strawberry soufflé pancake!

1. Hoshino's Spring Pancake Soufflé $14.50++
So after the waitress took our 7 orders of soufflés, all the 4 pancakes arrived at all table all at once! The strawberry ice cream was very smooth, it wasn't too sweet but the syrup they provided us was very sweet indeed! Use it sparingly over the soufflé, as it can drown out your taste buds and we had 6 more soufflés to try and we didn't want to kill our taste buds. The soufflé itself is alot harder than the normally fluffly soufflé. As it is a pancake, I would consider it more like a fluffier and slightly tougher version of a chiffon cake.

2. Pancake Soufflé with Chocolate Banana $13.50++
Lots of chocolate sauce going on here. When you order a pancake soufflé, you have an option of whipped cream of softee. We went with softee for all our pancake soufflés and we liked the softee. Japanese soft serves, you can never go wrong with them! The pancake soufflé don't have any fillings inside, unlike the hot vanilla soufflés.

3. Pancake Soufflé with Mango $13.50++
We decided to go easy on the syrup for this one, having tried the first Spring soufflé with syrup and the second one with alot of chocolate sauce. The softee itself isn't very sweet, as such you can taste the subtle sweetness of the soufflé pancake!

4. Pancake Soufflé with Matcha "Ogura" Bean Paste $13.50++
The most modest of the pancake soufflés, and my personal favourite. The matcha soft cream here tastes very similar to the one I tried at Tsujiri, it has a stronger bitter after taste than the typical sweet and sugar-ladden matcha ice cream. The bean paste is also very sweet, as such, be careful not to get a sugar-overdose trying to eat that on it's own!

5. Vanilla Soufflé with Chocolate/Custard/Matcha sauce $10.80++ each
All the vanilla soufflés arrived at our table just as we were done with the pancake soufflé!

You gotta pour the sauces into the soufflé and the soufflé was steaming hot as we sliced it open, and even as we dug in, each spoonful, you could still see it steaming!! It is a very hot dessert, and be careful not to burn your tongue!

Of the 3 sauces, my favourite was custard. It had the right amount of sweetness! The chocolate was abit too sweet for my liking and the green tea wasn't sweet at all!

Service is pretty good here, there's a button for your to press and the waitress will come to you. The also provide you with a bag to put your things.

Ordered the pancake and waited for more than half hour for it. The Royal milk tea is $7 and tastes diluted. Think I would prefer my Teh Tarik or HK milk tea. Overall the wait was long. Had long finished my lukewarm royal milk tea and the pancake is still not served. Not recommended unless you have all the time in the world to wait more than 50 mins for just a pancake. Overall spent $35.90 for 1 pancake, 1 'royal' milk tea and 1 matcha smoothie.

Met a friend that i hadn't met for a very long time. Was tasked to find the perfect spot for out planned dinner outing. You know how social media is going viral!! Saw pictures of people eating the pasta shown below. I had to be there to try that out! So this seems like a nice place to have dinner as well as to try out new dishes!

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.
