Last Sunday was my first time to be in Velocity Mall in Novena. I was just walking around, wondering where to eat, when I chanced upon this ridiculously cute cafe.
Well I couldn’t resist that, so I just had to eat there. Even their menus were cute.
I decided on the grilled chicken with truffle sauce, because I love truffle oil. The chicken was served on a bed of
roses potato wedges and a side of greens on a rectangular plate.
Nice presentation! As for the taste… it was delicious! You could really smell the truffle oil the moment the plate is laid out in front of you. The greens went well with the meat, and potato wedges were a treat.
The service was impeccable, too. The waiting time for the food to be served was decent. The waitstaff were warm and polite, quickly responding to my requests, like refilling my water glass or billing out. They were also unobtrusive and didn’t make me feel like I was an unwanted guest that needed to leave the moment I was done with my meal.
The place was not too full on a Sunday afternoon, so you can relax and enjoy your meal at a leisurely pace without feeling rushed to finish your meal to make way for other people. The tables were also adequately spaced so as not to give you a claustrophobic feel the way certain other cafes do.
They had a lot of delectable looking desserts on display, but I decided to give it a pass this time.
