Popular cafes often depicts the typical scene of the busy lunch hours where tables for two and fours are hoard up by families and friends with staffs both busy inside and outside the kitchen. I can imagine that kind of scene during the first one or two months of the famous gourmet cafe from across the Pacific Ocean. Honestly speaking, I almost never enjoy my meals in a explicitly noisy area since it’s distracting to strike a conversation with your partner.
So I waited out the months and reading the hits and misses online. Spying with my little eyes when would be a good time to drop by Orchard Central for breakfast, lunch or simply, brunch. I found the perfect time just when the cafe was fairly cleared of the office crowd during a rather late weekday afternoon. Lunch or brunch for all I care. I’m just gonna walk in and see how the cafe from New York fares.
Everything on the menu is up there, in between of city’s clock below and the food loaded counter above. Fresh salads and humongous sandwiches that Dean & Deluca has to offer but nothing caught my attention than the section that says “All-day Breakfast”. Forget about lunch or tea, if it’s breakfast then thumbs up for me!
The American Country Breakfast ($22.00) was what I guess the American by the countryside would have? Everything was huge and everything was great. Maybe just the scrambled egg, My brunch partner and I prefer it firmer than runny. Belgium Stacks ($21.00) was a name too tempting to resist from saying. Upon arrival, I think they should call it Belgium tent instead. I like how everything was presented from the vivid colours from the berries and sweet sauce even down right to the vanilla snowball hidden within. It was only a pity that I’ve ordered it only to devour it.
