Right next to the cashier, you will notice their array of baked goods. Lots of croissants, both savoury and sweet. The pizzas are also laid out here.

1. Chilli Crab Pizza $7.90

This was a new item on the menu. It looked pretty big for one person and even when sliced in half. It was very filling for me. The crab meat was mainly crab stick, which was disappointing, but the cheese was so good. It was sinful, but it was melted and the texture was consistent throughout the entire pizza.

I must say, Kokomama did inherit some A grade ovens from the previous tenant, 3 petiti croissants. All their baked items all come out good results. I couldn't really taste the chilli crab and it really wasn't spicy. What threw me off slightly was the crust of the pizza. The entire base of the pizza seemed to be one giant slab of bread. The crust of the bread was crisp all over the edges and even in the center, it was hard as a huge biscuit.

The staff also forgot my order of pizza, until about 30 minutes later when I went up to the counter to ask for it and then they apologized for their mistake.

2. Salted Egg Croissant $6.50

I've tried other salted egg croissants and this is the first salted egg croissant I've tried whereby the salted egg was very pale in yellow. It tasted very buttery as well. The croissant stayed crisp despite an overly long photo taking session.

The salted egg taste wasn't evident enough for me. The croissant was buttery and flaky but it didn't have enough layers to make me want to come back for more. The salted egg croissant didn't flow as much as I had expected either. It took some "persuasion" to get the salted egg to flow out. The salted egg sauce wasn't over whelmingly sweet which was good for me. But it quickly became gerlat for me and I highly recommend you to share this, if this is your first time trying a salted egg croissant.

3. Baked Seafood Rice

I've tried a few baked rice dishes here at Kokomama and all of them were okay in my opinion. The cheese was what made me like them and order them again, but the ingredients were lacking. The seafood baked rice was one of their pricier options. Ingreidents included a ring of squid, crab meat and a clam. The ingredients weren't marinated as such, they tasted bland. The rice didn't have any sauce to it, so underneath the layer of melted cheese, sat a bed of white rice. Luckily, the staff offered us saucers of minced beef pasta sauces which I quickly spooned together with the rice! 

Overall : An easy to get to location, with simple comfort food at affordable prices

Kokomama Marketplace has taken over Three Petite Croissant at the School of The Arts (SOTA). The design of the cafe hasn’t changed much but the menu is much more than bakes alone. I have been wanting to visit Kokomama to try out some of their Mains but keep couldn’t find time for it. Finally, thanks to the invite.

At a glance of Kokomama menu, I wasn’t quite sure of what the focus might be. As the name of the cafe suggested, “Marketplace” and indeed it was. As you find French, Korean and Japanese dishes whipped by Kokomama kitchen. I like varieties. And with the salted egg craze happening in Singapore, Kokomama has also jumped in to introduce this trend food together with other flavours and 3 new pizza.

Beside the Kokolava Salted Egg Croissant ($6.50), Kokokmama has also introduced 2 other flavours; Kokolava Peanut Croissant ($6.50) and Kokolava Custard Croissant ($6.50).

Custard being the lightest was the first to be consumed. The custard was lightly sweet and flowed like lava, true to its name Kokolava Custard Croissant ($6.50). But personally, I prefer the custard to be stronger in flavour and thicker in consistency.

Next on the list was the Kokolava Peanut Croissant ($6.50). It uses Kokomama secret peanut butter recipe. A pity, it didn’t flow like the Custard one. It has the typical peanut butter aroma. This is a hit among peanut butter fan.

Lastly the Kokolava Salted Egg Croissant ($6.50). I tried the Salted Egg Croissant about 2 weeks ago and was disappointed. But the improved recipe version, I was impressed. It could easily be on par with the current best. The salted egg cream flows, was creamy and smooth and we could savour the salted egg fragrance. The cream has a slight sweet tint which I suspect some may not favour over it. But I do. In fact, I thought the sweet tint was the key to make the totality taste better. Anyway, that’s my personal preference, I suppose.

Over to the pizza, 3 new flavours; Chilli Crab Pizza, Salted Egg Seafood Pizza and Smoked Duck Pizza. We enjoyed the Smoked Duck Pizza most. The pizza offered at Kokokmama does not consist of the usual tomato sauce and it is topped with the various ingredients on a freshly baked baguette. As such, the pizza flavour is light.

The Salted Egg Prawn Pasta ($14.90) has prawns, a small cup of mushroom soup and a garlic bread. I thought this was value for money. We enjoyed the pairing but personally, I would prefer a more al dente pasta.

The popular Korean dessert, Bingsu was also offered. The Matcha Craze ($12.90) is the top seller at Kokomama. Shaved Ice quality was fine and lightly milky and sweet. In it was Yuzu mochi, green tea powder dusting, with a ring of red bean around the scoop of green tea ice cream.

Mango Madness is the other hot favourite; available in either Baby ($8.90) or Giant ($12.90). We were mesmerized by this bowl of bingsu. All 6 at the table voted this to be their fave, including myself. The mango ice cream was strong in Mango flavour, topped with fresh mango, it was simply heavenly.

Kokomama Marketplace whipped an array of food and freshly baked bread and pastries in-house each day. I felt the menu was designed with the students in the area in mind and at a wallet friendly prices for the students to enjoy.

Ham and Mushroom Baked Rice ($9.90): Under the student meal, you get it at a discounted price ($7.90) plus a drink, of which I chose ice lemon tea. The rice was flavourful and there were sufficient portions of ingredients given! It was also cheesy enough for me.

This place really stands out on its affordable food. Taste wise some were good, some ordinary. But they really serve a wide variety of food: baked rice, curry rice, Japanese rice bowls, ramen, pasta, sandwiches, Bingsu and even homemade artisan breads! Plus they are very accessible.

As the previous tenants of this shop used to be the now defunct 3 Petit Croissants, the massive industrial ovens are still embedded into 30% of the kitchen that you can see through the glass window. Which is why Kokomama offers pastries, cakes and even bread. It has a large variety of croissants to pick from.

Once you take a glance at the menu, you realize you are looking at foods from different regions, like chilli crab sauce, QQ beef, unagi, baked rice and korean bingsu. It's quite hard to decide what exactly does this cafe cater to. But you can also tell based on the dining room arrangement, the owners probably wanted a no-frills cafe environment for students to hang out, grab a quick bite and dine in a comfortable environment.

First up, we had a QQ beef rice, the beef reminded me of Yoshinoya's beef bowl, but with less fats. I liked the salad that came in the rice too, made it feel more nutritious. Sadly unlike the yoshinoya beef bowl, the rice here was just your typical rice, rather than Japanese rice.

There are options for sauces for the rice like chilli crab, clam chowder and curry chicken. These are also their soups for their signature blackout bread bowl. They serve these sauces to you in a small cup and you have the option to pour it into your rice. I felt that without the sauce, the rice was too dry to be eaten. The beef itself was slightly dry too and the texture could've been better.

Next up unagi! They pretty generous with the unagi but same thing again, the rice wasn't Japanese rice. I wonder why they tout this in their Japanese menu but it's only Japanese because of the unagi and the seaweed?

I enjoyed the unagi was it was tasty and because of the sauce, the rice wasn't as dry as the QQ beef.

After mixing the unagi together with the salad and rice, you will have a mashed-up ungai salad with rice! Not a bad blend!  If you're feeling up to it, you can also spread some chilli crab sauce into it. But I felt the unagi didn't go well with the chilli crab sauce. Which, can be a tad spicy.

The cheapest on the menu was their student meals and at $7.90  with a drink, I felt it was still a bit high for this area. I can't imagine spending $8 a meal in my secondary school days. The cheese was well baked. I attribute this to their well-equipped baking infrastructure passed down from the previous tenant. The cheese was thick and delicious. The cheese went through about half the layer of the rice, so the bottom half of the rice stayed dry. I guess it's your part to mix the cheese around to ensure you have a properly balanced rice and cheese ratio.

For the rice that had cheese on it, the rice was good and tasty, together with the numerous slices of ham. It was better than expected. I felt that this was a better option  than a well-known chain that also offers student baked rice.

Next I tried the seafood cheese baked rice. For the price, it's alot! Yes there's prawns and squid and what not, but $15.90? That's being a bit bold, I must say. The cheese tasted the same and the same thing with half the rice being dry. I wish they could've added more cheese to the rice, to ensure you don't end up with half a tray of plain baked rice.
