I rarely post a restaurant decor, but I really have to make an exception this time. For, I feel this is a restaurant that deserves a special mentioning. And I believe if you bring along the old folks, they will have a wonderful time here. Those magazines on the shelf are very old magazines, probably older than many reading this post, and maybe published while your parents were still dating.

Mixed Berries and Buttery Crumbles Waffle with Vanilla Ice Cream, $10.50++

We only have one order, that is, Mixed Berries and Buttery Crumbles with Vanilla Ice Cream. While the dessert looks presentable, the taste is good too. Personally, I love the crunchy crumbles, which really brings up the ice cream taste up a notch. But if you still have not yet notice, take another look at the plate. Vintage huh?

Yup, right, that’s exactly what the cafe is trying to sell, that vintage feeling. Which is why I deliberately post its decor here. Still not impressed? You’re probably right, I ain’t too, not until you see the pictures below.

This is a vintage Mini Cooper. Don’t get it wrong, the car is INSIDE the restaurant! And it’s not here to woo babes, it has now become a table, a seat! We were offered this seat upon entering the restaurant, but I don’t really like the limelight. Thanks, but no thanks. Besides, the seats are somewhat compact, both me and my dining companion have long legs, though technically we can still push it back, it used to be a real car, but it’s heavy.

This is the seat we eventually chose, converted from oil barrels. Truth be told, it’s a bit low for diners, avoid it if you are having proper meals here. OK, these two seats are the most eye-catching in the restaurant. That’s not all, here’s another one.

This restaurant isn’t all about vintage decor and fancy seatings. They have plenty of nostalgic items such as magazines, toys, stationery, and many other collectibles. Most of them are actually for sale! Coming here is very much like taking a walk down memory lane, especially for the older generations. In fact, we were so impressed that we couldn’t help taking pictures all over, disregarding any probing glances from other diners in the cafe.

As for food wise, they do serve main courses, all day breakfast etc. It’s worth a visit, even just for that vintage ambience alone.

黑丸嫩仙草

Published November 24, 2014 by piggie

pokka-bb-1之前没听过黑丸嫩仙草这名堂,即使碰巧经过我想我也不会刻意光顾。从照片上看来,佐料蛮丰富的,虽然名堂上有些普通,第一印象就是充其量将各式台湾甜品融合在一个大碗,就这么混着吃,但如果你也抱着我这粗浅的想法就大错特错了!

招牌大黑丸甜品,$5.4(冰沙吃法)

首先,我澄清并不是为这Pokka的促销宣传,台湾的甜品在新加坡已经说不上新奇,若不是偶然在超级市场发现Pokka有这么一项优惠,我大概也不会发现这漏网之鱼。

黑丸嫩仙草的佐料包括芋Q、金薯、芋圆、地瓜圆、红豆、黑珍珠,当然还有其招牌嫩仙草(请别联想起“老牛”噢!哈哈!)。仙草在东南亚没什么稀奇,关键在于名堂上那个“嫩”字。黑丸的嫩仙草滑溜溜的,有入口即溶的感觉,一尝之后,你大概不会留恋传统的仙草了,就像是试过台湾的冰沙就不再喜欢刨冰一样。

而黑丸的招牌大黑丸甜品(就是优惠的赠品啦)的噱头并不仅限于此,另外还有冷、热四种吃法(真是4种,没写错)!分别是烧式吃法(Hot stuff),热式吃法(Warm the soul),冷式吃法(Chill factor),以及冰沙吃法(Frozen flourish)。我只试过热式及冰沙吃法,前者只是加热,即便外带,一小时内还是余温尚存。冰沙吃法顾名思义,加入台湾著名的冰沙,融合了嫩仙草、芋圆等,口感极佳!冷式无须繁叙,烧式应该是液状的烧仙草(这…大概不能再用嫩来形容了吧??)。

另外,黑丸也让顾客自佩佐料,冰沙亦有传统冰沙口味与冬瓜冰沙口味供选择,不过价钱是否有差别就不晓得了。
