A new cafe opens in the neighbourhood of Tanjong Pagar. Along Hoe Chiang Road is a cafe serving Asian-Western dishes with a twist!
I was very attracted to the interior decor of the cafe which is very posh and immediately teleported me to some part of Europe where tiles are bricked in white and large, majestic gold mirrors hung on the walls.
A perfect place for lunch, dinner or just to chill out over beer with friends.
Mushroom soup with 63 degree egg and truffle oil.
What made this mushroom different from others is that an egg is partially cooked inside and upon stirring, the whole concoction of egg and soup becomes so creamy! Perfect with the touch of truffle!
Charlie's Son Wings. This is the chef's special wings, robust in flavour and definitely left us wanting more... If you love chicken wings, this would not go wrong.
Smoked Uni Carbonara. This dish is one of the cafe's signature dish. Frilly pasta and clumps of slipper lobster meat in light, creamy sea urchin sauce. The onsen egg in the middle as well as the sprinkling of truffle soil garnished over the dish makes this very unique. Not your usual kind of carbonara.
65 Degree Grilled Striploin. Grass fed striploin with baby carrots, brussel sprouts, mushroom sauce. This was pretty average but I simply adore the presentation! It was such a lovely coincident that the steak came in a heart shape!
Besides dinner, First 25 Cafe also serves affordable set lunches.
