Brewing pleasantries along Dunlp Street, Rouse strive to give everyone the best and intricate hangout places and greater appreciation for espresso coffee with fine selections of sumptuous foods.
Raw, concrete and more than a run down is what I would describe when I step into Rouse on Dunlop Street. Wouldn't be on a good location, Rouse is located away from the bustling and busy streets of town quietly sits opposite of a mosque in the heart of Serangoon Road.
Didn't have to wait a long time before a young gentleman notices my presence. I've decided since I can't choose between the two, why not choose both? I ordered the crabby patty and the beef asparagus wrap to fill my empty tummy.
For a start, the beef asparagus wrap was amazing! The beef was perfectly marinated and definitely tender. The asparagus was like as if it was perfectly grilled or seared on a pan with little seasonings. It was all nicely placed and the juices of the beef running through on a bed of mashed sweet potatoes, which was also perfectly seasoned. I'd recommend you to get a taste of the wraps on its own before bursting the yolk of the beautifully poached egg. Clever with the slightly sweetened mini toast. Brings back the childhood. It would be great however if the sweet potatoes weren't too runny, slightly thick and a little creamier taste would do just fine.
Crabby patty was a catch. Real crab meat turned into a patty isn't easy. Not the same and is of so much class than the ones i've tasted in Kudeta. This patty has its own character. Spicy, sweet and surprisingly iressistable. Making the patty slightly spicy was a smart thing to do in demuring the seafood smell of the crab and triguring taste buds. Served with crunchy butterheads, bright red cherry tomatoes and accompanied with freshly yet slightly sweetened mini toasts, this meal is a complete knock-off.
Congratulations to Rouse On Dunlop Street.
Tucked in a narrow street, this cafe's deco is very rustic and old school. Even the plates and cups are almost antiques. Been here for dinner and brunch too. On sundays they have a special bfast Rouse platter with generous servings of bacon, sausages, scrambled eggs and roasted tomatoes. whenever i come here, i will always order krabby patty
It was a pretty chill cafe; my friend and I was the only customer during 8pm dinner time. (Probably due to the haze) Steak and salsa fries: The portion surprised me a little when it arrived on my table. Steak was carefully sliced into bite-size and cooked to the right rareness; salsa for the fries was too plain for me. The dish won't make you full but gives your stomach storage a 70% satisfaction. Salted egg calamari roll: the calamari rings were coated with salted egg sauce. The salted egg sauce was weak. The rings were nicely breaded but the sauce made it mushy. Ok la. Salted caramel rainbow cheesecake: the first taste was a tad too sweet, and subsequently we got used to it. I like the combination of honeycomb waffles on top. Overall I enjoyed the cake, but couldn't taste much of the cheese.
