With the much expected departure of the Cafe BBQ from its former spot at the 1Arena BDC Commercial Centre, comes this beverage centred café in its place. And with the competitiveness of the food business within the area are currently at an all time high, I was a bit surprise to see that this new establishment has garnered customers by the loads daily. So obviously that got me curious enough to drag my mom along during one of our weekly stops at the Giant Hypermarket (which was just steps away from the eatery).

I was half-expecting the place to cater to cold beverages only (judging by the numerous promos of their multiple flavoured milk teas & juices) but was very glad to discover that they’d also provided food. Even though it might not be extensive, they do still offer hearty food such as the Grilled Chicken Burger that I’ve ordered and the Hainanese Chicken Rice that my mom had. The former was definitely juicy, what with its marinated chucks of chicken and well charred buns that were simply delicious. My mom also gave a favourable comment on their chicken rice but said that the portioning of the chicken should be added. But our love for their food might not extend to that of its drinks though. I had their Peach Oolong tea and it tasted rather milky than anything peachy or tea (it was also a bit surprising on my part to get a milk added oolong tea drink, but then again it was probably my fault for not reading the menu carefully). Oh and I almost forgot that I’d actually tried out their ‘cake of the day’ as well, which was the Chocolate Chiffon Cake. Nothing too exciting about it though, just your average tasting cake (which is why I’d initially forgot to include it here).

Next we have…

Food – 3/5 (I’m sorry to say this but I do like their food better than their beverages)
Price – 3/5 (I would say that it’s still within the medium range)
Service – 4/5 (kudos to this Chinese waiter who went all out on serving his customers)
Décor – 4/5 (pretty pleasant but I did noticed some minor décor from its former tenant still being used)
Location – 4/5 (they’re at the far end corner of the area, nearest to the Giant Hypermarket)

** Current status – Still in operation (as of November 2017)
