L O L A x Strangers Reunion

 / / m a i n / /

hello friends!!
here's a few cafe reviews to get you revved up for feasting during this long weekend!;)

today's featured cafes are Lola's Cafe and Stranger's Reunion.

 Lola's Cafe cos its right beside Kovan MRT, super accessible!
and i checked their menu online, everything is quite affordable and they don't charge GST and service charge, bonus!;) 

 here's what we ordered!

Lola's Full Monty Breakfast
 (feat my green tea latte!)

Avocado Eggs Benedict

 Mushroom Melt

we ordered a few mains to share cos we were leaving space for dessert heh. 
the mains were pretty good! 
the Full Monty Breakfast was a classic American style big breakfast, with scrambled eggs, sausage, salad and bacon:) 
i'd have to say my fav of the lot was the honey glazed bacon! 
i'm usually not a fan of meat but this was so nice!! 
the eggs benedict is their signature dish and its not bad, the bread is quite soft (my fav is still Wild Honey's tho!) 
and we got the Mushroom melt cos yutzu is vegetarian haha, and she said she liked it so i guess its good:)

and yes, we had desserts as promised!

Lemon Meringue Tart

 this was quite nice, it has a subtle taste of lemon without it being overly sour.
mui found the tart crust a bit hard but i think its still okay, kinda like bisuit crust.
its also a refreshing pick if the rest of the desserts you picked are all sweet ones!

Chocolate Nutella Tart

i enjoyed this alot too, def one of my favs of the day!
super thick and rich nutella chocolate flavour in the form of a moist gooey cake.
good for people for love chocolate!

Seasalt Chocolate Tart with Coffee Cream

this was ok-ok only imo!
i couldn't taste the coffee cream at all, and it would have been nicer if they incorporated the sea salt into the tart itself cos by sprinkling it over the mix of the salt and the sweetness from the tart is kinda uneven.

Sticky Honey Apple Cake with Vanilla Icecream

and this was the favourite of the day!
its just good ol apple crumble with ice cream despite the fancy name haha.
but the mix of the ice cream, cinnamon powder and flavourful apple crumble was really yums!;)

next cafe, stranger's reunion!

we decided to try Stranger's Reunion after hearing so so so many raves on it on instagram/blogs etc! we alighted at Tanjong Pagar MRT and took a very long walk there with the (burden) google maps.
it made us take the long route tsk, we took like 30 mins to walk there -_-

okay so anyways here's what we ordered!

Eggs Florentine

Buttermilk Waffles with Vanilla Ice Cream and Berries

Signature Truffle Fries *MUST TRY*

the food there is quite decent, ambience is nice as well.
the eggs florentine were mediocre imo, the bread was the no no for me.

as for the buttermilk waffles, its one of their highly raved items.
the waffles were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside, paired with the vanilla ice cream and berries it tasted quite nice (though nics thought the berries made it a little too sweet for her liking).
i would think its actually slightly overrated but still a good treat for those with a sweet tooth:) 

and for my ultimate fav of the day... their truffle fries!!
it really is the best truffle fries i have tried so far:)
it was fried to perfection, really crispy, had the subtle truffle fragrance and the cheese/truffle shavings on top complemented it well.
i'd have to say what makes it stand out from the other truffle fries from other cafes is the DIP:)
it was da bomb haha, it really accentuated the truffles taste and made this the winning dish.
definitely a must try when you go to Stranger's Reunion ;)
i'd have to warn you before hand that the portion for this is HUGE though!
nic and i only managed to finish half the bowl though it was so delish ><
probably good for sharing between 3-4 ppl:)
oh and eat it while its warm cos it doesn't taste so nice when its cold!
