True Brew Cafe @ Yap Kwan Seng

June 23, 2009

A furniture gallery that doubles as an eatery, True Brew Cafe isn't the most popular place on this street, but it's worth seeking out for a peaceful dinner.

The menu is well thought out, offering wholesome dishes with fun twists.

Vegetarian bah kut teh. All that's missing is the pork. But once you get past that, this is surprisingly tasty. All the ingredients are top-notch, even the rice.

Fried rice. This may lack the 'wok hei' that everybody loves, but it's recommended for those who prefer fried rice to be less oily. Generously packed with prawns and dried scallop bits.

Banrai-nobu tofu with wasabi flavouring. Cooked over a mini-stove fire at our table for 15 minutes, this turned out to be wonderfully soft and silky. The wasabi flavouring added a nice kick that made it less bland.

Ajishi-no Sakura Cookies. Not bad, but not really exciting.

Pineapple tarts. Loved this. Tasted freshly baked. Warm, soft and comforting.

Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. We're not coffee addicts, but this was OK.
