Boufe, is a cafe which I think is not a very convenient place to head for. But despite the inconvenience, the queue to get a table is astonishingly long as the weekend lunch hours creep in.
Boufe does not look spacious to accommodate lots of diners, the turnaround rate is pretty fast. While still waiting for table, their board menus are hanged by the wall, else for the ladies, OHVOLA is just right in the same premise.
To free ourselves from the intense summer heat, we ordered iced drinks to replenish the lost bodily fluids. Iced Lychee Tea ($5.50) and Iced Caramel Latte ($6.50).
My companion's craving for chicken wings is limitless. Thus, here we end up with some bites before the mains. Crispy Wings ($10.00). It has around 4 - 6 pieces in one serving, and although the skin is not crisply-crisp, the wings inside is juicy. I would although, prefer the skin to be more crisp and with a little spices, as it would taste a little bland.
Eggs Benedict ($16.00) is one of the chef recommendation, consisting of homemade brioche with honey baked ham, poached eggs, homemade hollandaise sauce and fresh greens.
Triple B ($21.00), is like the hot favorite of the Boufe Cafe, as while I was waiting for my food to arrive, the same dish came out of the kitchen quite frequently. Boufe's big breakfast with freshly baked buttery croissant served with scrambled eggs, assorted sausages, streaky bacon, sauteed mushroom and fresh green. The sausages consists of normal chicken sausage while the other is garlic chicken sausage.
Sadly, we were too full for the desserts, but will make it a point to return back to Boufe for a full course meal, entree to main to dessert!

Smoked Salmon Croissant - $19

(Freshly baked croissant with smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and capers and fresh greens)

I loved how the croissant came in smaller pieces, and I could savor each piece with the scrambled eggs and smoked salmon that accompanied it. The eggs here at Boufe came in a drier consistency, slightly different from the usual scrambled eggs you get but still tasty. They were really generous with the smoked salmon too!

Eggs Benedict - $16

(Homemade brioche with honey baked ham, poached eggs, homemade hollandaise sauce and fresh greens)

I'm a sucker for eggs benny on brioche, because I'm a fan of having my hollandaise drizzled over thick fluffy bread. However, the sauce might have been a little too creamy for my liking. Still, cheers to the perfectly poached eggs!

Atmosphere:

I loved the white washed concept of the cafe, which somewhat reminded me of Blisshouse Cafe with all the swing and pretty vines going on. It's a really romantic cafe, so you might wanna consider bringing your other halves there!

You might find that it'll be quite a chore to head in, but we got buggy rides in from the friendly security guards, so maybe you can try requesting for it too! *winks*

Boufe Cafe - simply "boutique" and "cafe" made into an original name for this pretty little cafe hidden away in the outskirts of Orchard Road, sitting famously at the secluded Phoenix Park - I'd been wanting to come here because I keep seeing photographs of the famous white swings against pebbled grounds. The first time trying to get here failed, because they had an event; so we called ahead this time round.

To the left of the main entrance is where the clothes retailer is located, with an array of dresses, rompers and blouses in different hues and styles for one to shop from. It is interesting to encompass shopping and dining together in one space together, and it seems that many cafes are practicing this nowadays.
Duck Leg Confit

For mains, I chose the Duck Confit with Mashed Potato (SGD$22.00) - a well-matured piece of duck leg confit coupled with mashed potato and orange demi-glaze. The sauce was a little too much, drenching the potato and melting them into pulp; pity, because the flavour of the gravy is rather nice, playing upon the hints of sweet onions. The duck was tender in texture but the skin was not crispy, disappointingly. Other than that, I enjoyed this dish.
Spicy crab pasta

The Beau had the Spicy Crab Pasta (SGD$22.00), pasta cooked in spicy tomato sauce topped with white crab meat and arugula. The sauce was a thick spicy-tarty paste filled with very tiny slivers of crab meat - a disappointment because you could hardly see nor taste the crab. The only consolation was the springy spaghetti (one could also opt for penne) and the strong, spicy flavor of the paste which boosted the dainty-portioned dish.
Citron Tart
$5.5

For dessert, we had a Citron Tart (SGD$5.50), a pretty little darling with frozen cream heaped into a nice shape on top of the lemon curd. Taste was not bad - refreshing and sour-sweet as anticipated; but texture did not make the cut unfortunately. What might have been a fluffy, crispy crust was hardened as well as the lemon curd which might have been silken on the tongue - did they chill it for too long? Everything was hardened and it made cutting the tart a challenge, a pity for the good taste of this beauty.

After filling our stomach, we ordered desserts. Strawberry Shortcake S$8.00. Moist texture cake with strawberry sweetness. However, the price is at the high side for me.

Chocolate Tart S$5.50 will be the favourite for chocolate lover. I love the the contrast colour presentation served on the table. The tart filling was made up with 3 separate layers namely the dark chocolate for the top, milk chocolate for the middle and peanut butter for the bottom layer.
All prices are nett without GST and service charges. I personally love the interior cafe designs with black and white theme. Every corner of the cafe is worth for photo taking. The cafe is worth visiting for the foods quality and also cosy place for brunch session.
