Guess where we went?
JCube! Finally! Went to visit Pique Nique as recommended by Jin – I had a bad craving for breakfast food.
Here’s the interior – all picnic themed.
ON TO THE FOOD:
Big Breakfast, $15.80
Nothing great except for the baked beans – nicely done with some peppers and onions. Poached eggs were watery – as if the yolks were diluted; came with a drizzle of olive oil which didn’t lend much to its bland taste, sausage was okay, bacon was dry and … very brown. Came with orange juice that obviously came from cordial.
Petit Mac & Cheese, $7.80
Enjoyed this one – not too jelak/rich, just the right portion (between 2) not to make you feel overwhelmed by the cheese.
Hot Chilli Meat Fries, $11.00
Gotta give it to them – the chilli was good (not spicy at all, good for me); but fries were really passable.
Macarons, $2 each
Thought we should try the macarons since this branch was started by an award-winning pastry chef. These were alright. Nothing much to rave about.
Hot Iron Waffle with Salty Caramel, $11.80
Finally, after stuffing our stomachs with rather meh dishes, comes a winner. Crispy, fragrant waffle topped with ice cream (real vanilla bean!) and drizzled with really good salted caramel sauce. Bliss. A good end to our otherwise mundane, slightly overpriced meal.
