Starting off with their best-seller, the French Toast is a dessert that’s a certainly a feast for the eyes. Be sure to prepare your cameras as the cotton candy melts fast! This instagrammable dish is served with creme anglaise ice cream, brown sugar crumble, crushed pistachio, berry compote, and candy floss, all upon a thick slice of brioche bread. The brioche is toasted well, giving it a nice crispy edge while the middle has a delightful fluffiness.

Flavourwise, it is overall on the sweet side which is perfect for all you sweet tooths. There is a hint of brown sugar and the ice cream adds a touch of creaminess while being the main source of sweetness for the dish, Adding a layer of tartness is the berry compote, helping to balance out the sweetness and keeping the dish from being too jelak. Furthermore, the pistachio crumbs are crunchy, and their nuttiness is a good contrast to the sweet flavours. Each bite is an amazing blend of textures with a delightful burst of sweetness!

Fried Chicken & Waffles ($20)

A classic pairing, the fried chicken is done really well but unfortunately, the waffle is a letdown. You would typically expect the waffle to be crispy but the waffle here is sadly soggy. As the waffle is airy, it gets even soggier after you pour the maple syrup, giving it a slightly mushy texture after a while.

The chicken however is fried beautifully, with the batter having the perfect thickness ensuring it still remains light. Crispy and juicy, it pairs perfectly with the kimchi while the maple syrup adds sweetness and balance to the savouriness of the chicken and waffle. There is hardly any trace of the garlic aioli as well, but that could be due to the amount of maple syrup poured onto the chicken.

Overall, although the waffle isn’t great, the chicken truly is the star and each bite is an incredible balance of sweet and savoury, making this dish worth a try.
