On a Friday afternoon, I finally caught up with Crystal for lunch near her workplace. Gladly she works at Lyndhurst place, if otherwise I wouldn't have spotted this cute little upstair-café specialising in French tartines. The atmosphere is so chill here, with so little people around, great natural light coming in from the windows into the open space. It is perfect for business lunches or a coffee catch up with friends.For lunch, they serve 4 dishes (more like appetizers with salads and soup) an
This sort of pâté style pork meat was very creamy. Loved it with the gurkins and I wish there were more to pair it with! Crawfish Leg & Frisée Salad
In case you are not sure what's Frisée stands for, it basically means curly-leafed lettuce that has a slightly bitter flavor. It was mixed in a vinigrette dressing which was quite refreshing. Quinoa Salad
My favourite out of the 3 starters was definitely the Quinoa Salad. It was in a vinigrette dressing as well, with feta cheese avocado and pepper. which gives a good mix of textures and flavours in a mouthful. Prawn & Homemade Bechemel Tartine
The prawn was fresh and delicious, and the bechemel sauce gave the right amount of moisture to the crispy sour dough toast without being too overwhelming and sickly. It came with a cute cup of foamed prawn broth as well, but we left it cooled so it was a bit fishy at the end... I am sorry. Slow-cooked Beef Ragu & Parmigiano Reggiano Tartine
Sounded so fancy this bolognese on toast. There were a handful amount of Ragu with hint of wine, very fluffy and meaty, not to mentioned the melted mature cheese on the top. I mean you can't go wrong with this combination really. Mediterranean Vegetables, Scarmorza Cheese & Pesto Tartine
In comparison, this vegetarian tartine was much lighter. The cheese was so mild that it allowed the sweetness of the peppers and aubergines to stand out, leaving a refreshing note after all. With the set, you may add $20 to change your set drink (tea / black coffee) to a Cap / Latte / Hot Chocolate. Alternatively you may also post a photo of your food to social media to get it for free.
To be honest, the gourmet set with 3 dishes for each person was not quite manageable for us because their dishes were huge and the carbs are filling! But I really enjoyed the lunch here, no matter we are on about the food quality and the environment. Good prices as well so I highly recommend it!
