Bad attitude + inflexible management

Was 10-15mins away from the cafe and called to enquire about the red velvet lava cake. Was told there were only 2 left. told the person who picked up the call to make an exception to hold the cake for 10-15 minutes but all I got was a resounding NO. BOSS SAY CANNOT. BOSS SAY CANNOT. how inflexible is that?? Made the effort to call after reading a post. Expected a better reply than that. Reached the cafe 10 minutes later and the cake was sold out. So sad. A completely wasted trip all the way from choa chu Kang.

Attitude and Respect

POOR ATTITUDE AND RESPECT from the waiters and assistants of the cafe, unfriendly and unreasonable. Because of the staff we had a very unpleasant experience. And thus, we are very unhappy with it. Highly unreccommended.

Overall experience - Not bad

Having heard good reviews from most of my friends, i decided to give this a try. We ordered the seafood aglio oil and chocolate laca cake. Firstly, food was considered to be relatively cheap which is a thumbs up. Secondly, food in general was considered not bad. However, the seafood aglio olio was too oily for my liking. The lava cake overall was good however, the chocolate within the cake did not flow out. This was not what I had expected. Basically, the taste of the food in general was okay. With the cheap prices, this is worth a try.

Well-infused flavored food.

“Home is where the heart is” A very cozy and warmly themed To-gather cafe located just a stone throw from Bedok 85. It has since expanded from their initial cafe to accommodate more diners. I like how inspirational thoughts were scribbled and printed on as part of their cafe decoration. Their menu served a modest array of fusion food with touch of local flavors and known best for their matcha lava cake.
 
 It’s definitely a home away from home for the young ones! Besides being a good place for some gathering and catching up, it also has the best lunch deal for the students! When you’re sick of the usual and typical lunch sets everywhere, you know where you can turn to now!

 So we decided to order a couple of dishes to share, first up is the Soup of the day ($3.60) which is Cream of Mushroom. Consistency is thin but it has a thick creamy mushroom flavor! Simple dish yet it’s well plated.
 
 Together Sampler Platter ($8.90) is basically a little of every thing. In contrast to the soup, i must say the outlook does look a little disappointing, and the servings looks a little too miserly. Taste is pretty normal like the typical fried food you get from the frozen corner in the supermarket.
 
 We decided to order their most 2 recommended mains – Pork Cordon Bleu ($10.90) & Grilled Pandan Chicken Chop ($8.90). Every main is served with a side salad & chips. I like their dressing for the salad, it has a tinge of citrus flavor to it. What most people worry about serving food like pork chop is it turning out too tough. But their Pork Cordon Bleu is not the case, it’s not too thick and it’s tender with the cheese oozing out. On the other hand, for the Grilled Pandan Chicken Chop, doused with light creamy coconut sauce and salsa enhances the overall aroma of the dish and the chicken brings out a light flavor of pandan. A well-infused dish i would say.
 
 Since we are there, how could we not try their famous! We ordered both their Matcha & Chocolate Lava Cake with a scoop of ice cream, $6.90 & $5.90 respectively. Chocolate is something that doesnt go wrong, and matcha is something different that is worth a try. So what’s my convict? Generally, their lava cake is moist and dense. Yes, its true that Matcha Lava Cake is kind of special, but somehow the matcha flavor is not really there and the matcha lava is kind of too sweet to my liking. It gets a little too ge-lard after eating for long. Chocolate lava cake was otherwise. The warm lava is thick, creamy and has a bittersweet taste! Sometimes, the good old ones are still the best!
