Eating is Singaporeans' passion and here at ASOS, we feature the food that are worth the calories and distance. We enjoy all kinds of cuisine from western to hawker fare to Indonesia to desserts - who can resist them? You may be in for a treat once in a while when the foodie is in the mood to share her special recipe for baked goods. Food feeds the soul and we believe good food should be enjoyed by everyone from all walks of life.
There was this day where I had dinner at a coffeeshop along Killiney Road and I saw this western style cafe from opposite the road and I told my partner to check it out after our dinner. Never did I expect to find so many choices of pies, sourdough loaves, pies, sandwiches and even quality, decent coffee at this 3-month old cafe at affordable prices!
My partner and I were spoilt for choice! But we decided to have light desserts that will not be too heavy on our palette (and hips). The pear & almond tart was really delicious! I like that the tart base was not too flaky and the almond filling goes very well with the pear. Perfect with a cup of coffee. The chocolate eclair on the other hand, was not up to my liking. The crust was a tad too hard and even though the chocolate mousse filling was fantastic, it didn't make me wanna finish up the whole thing in seconds.
Food aside, I really love the whole stylish and simplistic decor of the whole cafe with a very warm and cosy ambience. The lady serving at the counter was very patient as she recommended some top favorites to us and I truly appreciate such service staff who are polite, speaks well and welcoming! We had a little chat with the counter staff and got to know that it's only opened for about 3 months.
There's bread tasting available at the counter and prices range from $4 - $10 for the bread and $2 - $10+ for the pastries, tarts and sandwiches. This is definitely a place I want to bring my friends to for dessert and coffee after a watching a movie or a day of shopping!
