The Laneway Market

/ / m a i n / /

hola!!!:) i'm back again with another cafe recommendation today hehe.
this time its a trip to dakota with audrey for a good catchup!
but first, a few selfies cos i was early heh.
featuring my straw sunhat which just looks nice but actually doesn't really help much against the sun lol. it helped against the rain though! ahh the irony..

the nearest mrt station is dakota, its about a 10-15mins walk to the laneway market.
i'm also not very sure how to describe how to get there cos the route is in my head but i just can't describe it in words, sorry!
do note that laneway is right at the end of a row of shops, have to turn into a corner.
its right beside "mei zhen xiang", the place where they sell bakgwa:)

audrey and i were so delighted when we arrived!! 
firstly cos it suddenly poured cats and dogs while we were walking there sobs..
secondly cos the place was so so gorgeous!!!
its decorated so well, with beautiful flowers at random corners of the cafe, vintage lamps and so much more.

their brunch menu doesn't have very wide selections i have to say.
i was pining for the mushroom risotto and was so disappointed when i found out it was in the after 6pm menu sobs.
but well at least that gives me a reason to visit this beautiful place again, right?

anyways, here's what we ordered!
for drinks, audrey got a sea salt ice chocolate, i got a earl grey latte.
for mains, we shared a pulled pork hash and a scrambled eggs with salmon and apple chips.

audrey said that her iced chocolate was not bad, but she couldn't taste the sea salt so i guess that means its just kinda like normal iced chocolate!
for me, i loved loved loved my earl grey latte!
i could taste the earl grey and it was so fragrant, plus the latte wasn't too bitter and was actually delightful to sip on:)
i would definitely recommend the earl grey latte!

and for the mains, the pulled pork hash was wonderful.
its a rather unique dish i'd have to say, the pulled pork was marinated well and the whole dish just went well together.
it had a runny egg which we mixed in with the hash(potato), which made it more moist, less dry and more fragrant.
i would recommend this dish as well.

for the scrambled eggs with salmon, its a let down unfortunately.
there was nothing special at all about this dish and the bread/scrambled eggs were mediocre, or even abit less than average.
the salmon was fine but not anything special.
i wouldn't get this again on my next visit~

and now for dessert, yum!!
we got a sea salt chocolate tart and a lemon tart to share:)

both desserts were delectable and we polished them off hehe.
the sea salt chocolate tart was da bomb, so rich and chocolatey!!
i loved how they added granola at the bottom of the tart, which added a nice touch.
and yes the sea salt was noticeable in this dessert;)

the lemon tart was a good choice as well!
it was refreshing and zesty, a good complement to the chocolate tart to prevent us from being gelat.

audrey helped me take some pictures in this beautiful space after that.
(much thanks audrey!!!)
i'm wearing a chiffon top from mango, and the stahl floral midi from runwaybandits.
enjoy the visuals!!

we explored the dakota area thereafter, taking photographs and taking in the sights.
i'm actually not foreign to this area cos my grandma lives here and i visit her every week:)
still. it was a nice walk along the canal and lalang patches:)

ending off with a not so glam picture!
but its a happy smiley one and happiness is infectious so there, i hope you guys are infected with some happiness vibes!!

till the next;
