Gula Melaka Pandan Chiffon 香兰椰糖蛋糕 ($8.90)
Childhood favourite soft pandan chiffon is baked with bits of palm sugar for that extra Nyonya flavour and served with delightful Gula Melaka syrup.
Interesting chiffon cake with a layer of Gula Melaka filling in it. If not enough, there's a serving of rich Gula Melaka syrup to dip with. The cake was light and fluffy. Although it looked like there was lots of cream with dessicated coconut on top of the cake, I felt that it gave the cake a kind of moist feel.

Served with Green Mango Peach fruit tea 有机芒果桃味茶 ($8)
The tea was light and fruity in taste.

Overall the tea set was enjoyable. The service was great with the staff refilling the tea without being asked to.

Priced at the same amount is the Nanyang Curry Chicken In Bread Bowl [$14.90]. Curry chicken is my weak spot and that explains why I'm head over heels with this! This could get messy but it is not stopping me to enjoy this aromatic and flavourful coconut-based curry in a crusty and soft bread bowl, the curry kampong chicken is a cosy and warming indulgence.

A interesting take on pandan cake, Gula Melaka Pandan Cake [$8.90]. This yummy goodness is baked with bits of palm sugar for that extra Nyonya flavour and served with delightful gula melaka syrup. If only they could be more generous with the gula melaka.

The Sawadee Greens (SGD$14.90) - seafood salad tossed with Thai dressings, made up of fresh plump shrimps, minced meat, cherry tomatoes, nuts and greens. The citrusy dressing (not due to the squeezing of the lime juice in) was both refreshing and a palate teaser, bringing the salad up to another level altogether. The freshness here was very distinctive, marking this to be yet another good selection by us.

Next, Nanyang Curry Chicken in a Bread Bowl (SGD$14.90), comprising of two of our favoritest things - thick, spicy curry with aromatic coconut notes, served piping hot in very crispy bread bowl. If you love bread with good curry, and if you love succulent, soft chicken meat in your curry - then this was probably created specially just for you.
Pineapple Tart

Finally, we managed to squeeze in a slice of Pineapple Tart (SGD$8.90) with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. No, this is not your Chinese New Year pineapple tarts, but a slice of crusty tart filled with sweet pieces of pineapple fruits and a solid, fluffy centre. I love this tart, love how the taut texture caved in upon contact with the teeth and melting into beautiful buttery pastry dust on the tongue - the effect was almost mesmerising. Add tingle to the sensation with the ice-cream, and we are all set for perfection.

Chicken was tender but as a whole, the dish lacked that flavourful kick. At almost $20 for this, your expectation of our favourite local dishes will likely soar to the roof. Unfortunately, it left us wanting.

Generous serving of ingredients and the curry tasted pretty good. Similar bread bowl being used and we completely wiped out the dish. The bread was the highlight.

A dish that's hard to perfect, and sure enough it wasn't up to mark. Grilled in thyme, bay leaves, honey and brine of the rack, the pork on the table somehow lacked in flavour. They offer you a choice of hainanese, black pepper or mushroom sauce. I'd go for the black pepper any day.

Mixed Berries Smoothie, Mango Smoothie, Guava Apple Smoothie ($10 each)

The drinks menu included some specialties such as smoothies and milkshakes. Of the 3 smoothies, we all agreed that the refreshing Mixed Berries was the best.

Latte ($4.50)

While the flavours offered for the milkshakes sounded tantalising, the Gula Melaka Coconut Milkshake didn't exactly work out as it was far too much cream, to the extent of overshadowing the gula melaka and coconut taste.

Surprisingly though, their coffee was very, in fact more than decent. Apparently, it is brewed from Nanyang-based coffee beans, instead of the Arabica or Robusta we usually get in cafes. I enjoyed the smooth latte. which was not overly acidic, along with the cute '1933' coffee art.

Power Carrot Bread Bowl ($9.60)

Our favourite starter though was the Power Carrot Soup Bread Bowl. The bread was crispy on the outside, yet chewy and slightly fluffy still, while the soup was full of carrot flavour. Approved.

Nanyang Curry Chicken Bowl ($14.90)

Still the same addictive bread bowl, but in this Nanyang Curry Chicken rendition. It would be better if the chicken chunks came boneless. Nevertheless, the curry was a good consistency, and coupled with the bread, was pretty satisfying.

Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice ($16.80)

For the Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice, the rice fared better than the chicken, which lacked flavour though tender. The price for this hits nearly the top tier for chicken rice in Singapore (the topmost being the famous Chatterbox Chicken Rice). For a bistro not specialising in the dish, it would be better if they lowered the price in order for customers to be willing to try it. Get your chicken rice fix from other places, unless you feel an extremely urgent must-satisfy craving.

Gula Melaka Pandan Chiffon ($8.90)

We were silently wishing this was some sort of lava cake. It wasn't. Still, this pandan chiffon cake was fluffy and full of pandan flavour, Paired with the gula melaka, it tasted like a chiffon version of ondeh ondeh.

The misses aside, some of the dishes here are definitely worth a try if you do not mind the slightly high price points. Skip the 'local signatures', since you can get far better at cheaper prices from our hawker centres. The serene ambience of the Capitol makes 1933 a good place to spend the afternoon over a cup of coffee, people-watching and soaking in some 'colonial' vibes.

Sawadee Greens - $14.90

A Thai-styled seafood salad with distinct Thai flavors! We were fans of this dish and I was heartened by their use of fresh prawns instead of the frozen ones. It's really unique, with minced pork bits and their special Thai dressing.

1933 Power Carrot - $9.60

For a bread bowl, $9.60 sounds pretty reasonable since that's almost the same price you have to pay at Soup Spoon. Served in a French bread bowl, the soup contains ingredients like carrots, onions, cream, ginger, butter and topped off with some orange zest to give it depth. It was thick, creamy and rather filling I must say!

Nanyang Curry Chicken in Bread Bowl - $14.90

If you're a fan of the Golden Pillow Curry, you might love this! The curry chicken bread bowl at 1933 offers a similar concept, with a richer curry base. They were really generous with the chicken pieces though I would have preferred if they were deboned! They were also carrot and potato chunks in this!

Grilled Pork Loin - $28.90

This was a rather interesting concept since it was the first time we saw pork served like this. The pork is dipped in thyme, bay leaves, honey and brine, accompanied by sauteed potatoes in olive oil. It also comes with 3 different dips for you to choose from - Mushroom, Hainanese, Black Pepper. My personal favorite was the Hainanese sauce which had a tinge of spiciness to add a little more kick to the dish. I felt that the pork loin was a little tough though

Hainanese Kampong Chicken Rice - $16.90

Friends who know me well would also know that I'm a sucker for chicken rice. I know it might seem a teeny bit ridiculous to pay $16.90 for this, but hey, you really do pay for what you get. WJ and I had chicken rice recently, and it really paled in comparison to this. The kampong chicken was selected for its tender and less oily meat while the rice was cooked in chicken broth to achieve that fragrant goodness. It's also served with garlic lime chilli, dark soy sauce and freshly pounded ginger!

Gula Melaka Pandan Cake - $8.90

The cake is baked and topped with whipped cream and bits of palm sugar, accompanied with Gula Melaka syrup. You could also taste the Gula Melaka sugar in the cake itself! The chef at 1933 put in more effort and came up with a different whipped cream base for the cake which reminded us fondly of the milkmaid condensed milk which we absolutely loved!
