Full review on http://herpenandfork.blogspot.sg/2015/06/old-hen-coffee-bar.html Set along the somewhat sleepy streets of Rangoon Road, Old Hen Coffee Bar is an accessible 5 minutes walk from Farrer Park MRT(exit B). This simple coffee and food venture is set up by three brothers. It is a quaint little space that seats about 20, including 5 by the raised counter overlooking the window.Given the space constraints, it is more conducive for meetups with small numbers.On the weekday afternoon we visited, the cafe was quiet with ony a few other customers around, making it perfect for an afternoon escape away from the hustle and bustle. There aren't many items on the menu. Brunch choices include a burrito, sandwiches and toast.The cold-brew is a touted specialty here, brewed using Oriole coffee beans. They used to have the black cold brew on the menu, but it was cancelled out, leaving only the white available. $6.50 for a glass bottle.The verdict? Impressive. A well-balanced aromatic brew that wasn't acidic and just the right milkiness. Pure coffee-licious. Just this is worth the trip, especially for coffee enthusiasts.Old Hen White Cold Brew ($6.50)Homemade WafflesHomemade Waffles ($9) with apple compote, salted caramel sauce and greek yogurt.Old Hen's Homemade Waffles are for those who like their waffles airy light. Eating it down felt almost like I only had the surface of it, because that was how airy the inside was. Affordable nett prices here, compared to most other cafes and coupled with a nice ambience. It'd be worth a visit, even just for the coffee. There's free wifi as well. Did I mention that the other table's mains looked and smelled pretty good too? continue reading

Guess the vicinity around Jalan Besar is starting to get infected with the many cafes opening in that area, even Farrer Park is not spared. Pek Kio had seen openings such as aBite and P. Bistro, and Rangoon had Woodshed. Now its Old Hen Coffee Bar.Ordered their Buttermilk Waffles ($9.00). It originally comes with Blueberry Compote but they were out of that so they replaced it with poached apples for mine. Buttermilk fragrance was evident, while the waffle itself was toasted just nice to be crisp yet soft, but retaining a cooked through texture as it was more bread-like inside. The overall result was brilliant; the sweetness from the soft poached apples matched well with the strawberries and the slight tartness of honey-infused yoghurt, and the chocolate sauce drizzled was yet another dimension of sweetness added.Cold Brews are also undeniably one of their specialties. On the day of my visit, only the White ones were available. Undeniably creamy, the White Cold Brews ($6.50) were really satisfying in hot weather. Their take involved a tinge of sweetness, creating a very malt-like sweetness at the end of each sip. For more photos and the full review, please visit: http://jiaksimipng.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/old-hen-coffee-bar-rangoon-road/ continue reading
