And visit I did. I braved the over one hour commute via replacement bus, train and regular bus to get me some halal bacon. Was it worth it? Well, read on.
While looking at the menu, the waiter came to ask about my drinks order. Not being a coffee person, I got the Red Boost juice. I got it partly in a bid to be healthy and also because I felt pressured to buy it, sigh. When I got it though, I was underwhelmed. I also didn’t think it was worth the price.
I had been afraid that I’d ordered too much food, however, the pancakes were just two stacks.
The hotcakes were beautiful. By beautiful, they tasted great. They were also charred (caramelised sugar?), which I liked. Unlike other ricotta hotcakes/pancakes/etc that I’ve had, these had pieces of ricotta in them. They were hot and fluffy but also dense. They could have done without the ice-cream though.
The bacon I liked too but it was too salty. Is that how bacon usually is?
Anyway, will I go back? I plan to! That gnocchi, with a side of beef bacon off course, is still on my mind.
