Strangers' Reunion at Kampong Bahru

Saturday's afternoon was spent at Strangers' Reunion with the BF. This cafe has been at the top of our to-go list and we finally made it there (this was last year actually :x). It was a 15 minutes wait before we were seated. If you are looking for a quiet and cozy cafe to chill and hangout at, forget about Strangers' Reunion. It was very noisy during the peak hours and I could hardly hear my companion.

"Magic" $5.50
The caffeine taste was bitter and strong. The milk foam was creamy and smooth. Magic is made up of double shot ristretto and milk. 

Cafe Mocha $5.50
A well balanced combination of cocoa, caffeine, and milk. Loving the lovely swan art too.

Flat White. Lovely art as usual.

Florentine $18
We found this overpriced and the portion did not justify for the price. The egg yolk was not at all runny as it was overcooked and the hollandaise sauce was not sufficient so it was quite dry as the yolk did not provide the needed moisture. The bread was also soggy but we love the overall taste of this dish. Everything went well together.

Waffles with greek yogurt and mixed fruits $11.50

The slightly sweet and acidic taste of the yogurt went so well with the light and fluffy waffles. The moment I tried it I fell in love with it. Definitely one of the better waffles I had tried!

Waffles with mixed berries compote 
The berries compote was too sour and the acidic taste of it entirely masked the fragrance of the buttermilk waffles. Unfortunately, this wasn't to our liking.

Mixed Fruits Waffles
They could have been more generous with the strawberries. The maple syrup was really sweet but it complemented the waffles well. So far, my favourite rendition has got to be the waffles with greek yogurt.

Prices aren't cheap but it is still worth a try if you love waffles. Be prepared to queue even at off-peak hours because they are almost always full.
