Nice place to chill

Full review: http://www.jacqsowhat.com/2015/04/oriole-coffee-bar-somserset.html

Glad to know that Oriole Coffee & Bar has finally re-opened its doors back in January after a refurbishment of 2 months. Been here twice before they revamped and wasn't really impressed with the food. But glad to know that the refreshed menu offers a wider range of food after the refurbishment as well as bringing back their signature Raven & Yellowbird blends. 

One of my fav would be the Fried Wild Rice $11. Crispy fried rice with smoked lap cheong and a not-so-secret onsen egg surprise hidden underneath. It's like a chinese-jap fusion kind of dish, pretty impressed with this one. The wild rice tasted like crispy claypot rice with a distinctive wok aroma. As well as Garlic Prawn Risotto $25, grilled garlic prawns with arborio rice and asparagus in rich prawn bisque. A mixture of moist and flavorful soft grains, together with a crunch from the asparagus.

For desserts don't forget to try Chocolate Coconut Affogato $9. A scoop of vanilla ice cream, cookie crumble and a shot of espresso. Mad love this one. More on the link :)

Told service guy I was there for a coffee. So shocked he walked away without offering even a menu & i had to walk into restn to ask for svc. Coffee came 10 mins later. Other guests who came after me & are westerners were greeted with smiles. Utterly upset with the bad service!

I had my usual Cafe Latte ($5.5/$6.5) to kick start my day. The aromatic single shot espresso has quite a body and I enjoyed the bittersweet taste of caffeine.

My partner had the Garlic Prawn Risotto ($25) which was cooked beautifully with the arborio rice infused with the prawn bisque. The crunchy grilled garlic prawns and asparagus provided the needed textures. A very robust and enjoyable plate of risotto.

I decided to try to Jamaican Jerk Chicken ($22) that comes with grilled jerk rub baby chicken, corn salso and crispy onion rings. The dry rub with its spices was quite flavourful. The chicken had a nice charred grilled taste on the outside while still tender and juicy inside.
