Decided to have lunch at Bakerzin with my lovely mum, since she'd been hinting all week long that Bakerzin has an awesome set lunch promotion menu. So, why not?
Please read the overall summary at the bottom of this review as well.
The ambience is nice, and the place is conveniently located.
We ordered a lunch set menu which included an appetizer, main course, and beverage. We upgraded our beverage (+$2.50).
My mum's Latte ($5.40). It was normal, just like any latte we would have gotten in other cafes.
My Mocha! ($5.80). Tasted like Milo with plenty of chocolate. Not the best, but still okay.
Pumpkin soup, $5.90. This was good.
Waldorf salad. $10.50. Very fresh and tasty. Love the apples
Teriyaki chicken rice. ($13.90) I've had better. Honestly, it was a great mistake to order this. The meat was tender, but the taste was awful. There was a little taste of vinegar and the sauce was horrible - is that even teriyaki?
Braised pork belly rice. ($15.50) My mum had such a hard time swallowing this whole bowl of rice. The pork belly meat didn't help.
Bakerzin, like what my friends and family told us, is know for desserts - cakes, mooncakes and stuff.
Thus, do not make the same mistake as I did. Do not order Chinese food from Bakerzin, unless you want your lunch time to be a moody one. It was a total waste of money for us, we made a huge mistake. We should have ordered desserts and Penne instead. Although I rated Bakerzin a "cry" for its food, it must be known that this review excluded any desserts of any form. I strongly believe that desserts would be rated a "smile" on my next visit.
The total bill for this visit was $40+.
Take home message: Always order what the outlet specializes in.
P.s. Will be reviewing desserts next time I visit Bakerzin.
