Terracotta Cafe @ Tropicana Avenue
June 13, 2016
There's a whimsical charm to this idyllic new cafe, which could become quite an attraction for several of its specialities. If you've been scouting around for mizu shingen mochi - the Japanese 'water cake' - Terracotta serves its own crystalline version of the wobbly, jelly-like dessert, calling it a 'unicorn teardrop.' It may look like a fragile bubble, quivering at the slightest touch of a spoon, but it's firm to the bite, with a very gentle sweetness, paired with roasted soybean flour & brown sugar syrup. RM8.90.
You'll also find some interesting waffles, pastas & tea here. Our best bet might be William's Cheese Cottage (RM22.90), a sweet-savoury waffle that's topped not only with Terracotta's own-made vanilla & tea ice cream but also layered with cheese, salted butter & honey - a guilty pleasure that goes down easy. But we have mixed sentiments about the Grenada Verde Pasta (RM22.90) - the mashed-up sauce of avocado, spinach, Greek yoghurt, tomatoes & onions is well-textured but seems a little off in its balance of flavours, with more than a hint of sour. For tea, order the butterfly pea tea, made blue with bunga telang.
