maybe the food the prices or the environment the style of this restaurant
the last time and the first when i was here was December 2011,
and i ordered a lunch set with beef burger.
After one and a half month, decided to go to simplylife again with my friend.
As usual, long queues and full of people inside the cafe, and after approximately 25 minutes we entered.
as usual soup/salad, the main course and the dessert.
The prices diversed.
and i ordered the set with just main course and the dessert.
THE DRINK - GRAPEFRUIT ICED TEA
it's refreshing but a little bit bitter,
but after enjoying bits of burgers and the flavor of iced tea was better and the bitterness was not that obvious anymore.
Personally i am really fond of the iced tea here because the tea flavor is not really obvious. rather calling this a "GRAPEFRUIT drink".
THE MAIN COURSE - CLASSIC BURGER WITH BACON
because there french fries seem fresher, and than more home-made.
And for the taste, crunchy outside with soft texture n rich potato flavor which is quite mouth-watering and intriguing.
Soon i finished most of the fries and try the burger.
As usual, simplylife claims to be a bakery cafe as its bread is home-made coz you can see the bakers making the bread on the next side of the cafe.
So i do love the texture of the bread of its special softness,
but i don’t smell any flavor from the bread, probably because of the quality of the flavor, and that is little bit disappointing.
As for the bacon, which is too dry and seemed over-grilled, that is really unsatisfactory.
And the final part - the beef, i won’t say it’s good because it implies that i would have to pay more for this set already, tenderness is okay but a little bit not firm enough. probably it’s just minced beef. Altogether the burger is okay, but it does not really explain the long queues.
THE DESSERT - LEMON CHEESECAKE AND CHOCOLATE BROWNIE
Cubic shape, slightly sour in flavor but the cheese is quite smooth.
As for the brownie, it's soft and the chocolate moouse is smooth enough! Great with dry peaches!
Overall, i still couldn't find the answers why people would spend 25-30 minutes to get in.
The food is okay but not especially intriguing.
But still, in a lack of western restaurants for brunch, this could still be a great and reasonable choice.
Within my priced-range, and i would pay more for the french fries and the bread.
Maybe there is just a lack of restaurants in a simple and fresh design and the tastes of food that makes this outstanding.
Supplementary Information:i noted that people ordered ALL DAY BREAKFAST in simplylife
but i just could not help comparing it with CAFE HABITU THE TABLE also at festival walk,
and it seems that the ingredients, the method of cooking diverse greatly.
dont prefer ordering the all day breakfast here.
