The Caffe.Bar

From what i have heard, this Bakerzin-related uses a chef poached from an unrevealed restaurant, and is Daniel Tay's creation for his sister. They do not exactly occupy a shop space but situates in the middle of Parkway Parade's fashion retail area. Dad frequents here for lunch so often that they even issued him an exclusive VIP card.

The all-day-set-meals are a hit if you wish to savour a variety at a worthy price. Gourmet Sets cost $19.90 and Cuisine Sets at $20.90, each inclusive of a soup, choice of main course and standard coffee/tea.

Clam Chowder & Walnut Toasts

A Clam Chowder came hot and comforting, palatably creamy without binging on the chunks. Not only did the soup taste good, we were also entitled to free flow of their DIY slice-and-toast bread bar. Walnut bread is our usual.

Medallion of Salmon with Wasabi & Soy Honey ($20.90)

Two pieces of salmon fillet, coiled up and pan-fried to a remarkable note. I loved the way the two unbeatable sauces coordinated so well, with contrasting dashes of potent wasabi creating tastebud wonders with that sweet-savoury soy honey. My only grouse had to be the measly portion, but then again, quality beats quantity. If the grease could be slightly reduced, this Medallion of Salmon with Wasabi & Soy Honey dish comes close to perfection.

Seafood Aglio Olio Spaghetti ($19.90)

They execute good skills in their pastas too. Dad's Seafood Aglio Olio is tossed in extra virgin olive oil packed with spice and a plethora of fresh seafood.

Coffee, Greentea & Passion Macarons ($1.50 each)

Priced at $1.50 each, these macarons were probably the cheapest desserts on display. I reckon the same production line as Bakerzin's except with a change of flavours to avoid confusion. Not too bad, the flavours were clear and distinct.

Rosy Pink Tea

The emphasis on presentation, ambience and all is just so typical of a perfectionist's style. A return is definite, since everything from pastas to the desserts are all worth a try.
