After a movie at Golden Village, it was already quite late and my friend and I didn't want to walk far for food. We went into Cafe Cartel which was right infront of us. I ordered their St. Louis Pork Ribs ($15.60), which is an award winning spare ribs roasted with the restaurant's homemade BBQ sauce, served with side salad and wedges. The meat are tender and easy to separate from the bone, it was a very filling dish so I ended up giving 1/4 to my friend. He ordered the Teriyaki Chicken Hotplate

He ordered the Teriyaki Chicken Hotplate ($15.60), which came in sizzling well. The chicken is also grilled to tender rightness paired with vegetables and wedges.

Overall, the food were good but not exceptionally great. But can always be a good choice for a decent dinner.

Overall the taste was ok but the serving was quite big, I even ordered the regular size Pork ribs $15.60 ( you can opt for the small @ $11.20). However the coleslaw was not really fresh. As for the Hawaiian Pork ribs ( $ 18.50) , the meat was a little hard but overall is still alright.

After the meal, we decided to have some cakes!
We ordered a choco banana cake and a tiramisu and it comes with a free drinks.

The cake was really yummy! They also had a promotion where the cakes are at 50% off after 9 pm! We were kinda early this time round but i will definitely come back for cakes as it's also a good place to catch up with friends!

In addition, they really have alot of cake discounts such as student pass, citibank credit card, passion card and many more!
We used passion card and got a 15% off the bill and it final bill was about $56 for 2 pax

Cafe Cartel is known for their pork ribs but if you don't want to have such a heavy meal, try their Pan-Fried Macaroni ($14.80) instead. It's macaroni pan fried with chicken and mushroom in sambal sauce. This dish is a little spicy with a slight tinge of sweetness and taste pretty decent. But this time round, even though they were generous with their chicken, I wish they had chopped the chunks properly as I found a lot of the chicken "stuck together". Very big plate so it was very filling.

I order a slice of Tiramisu Cheese Cake for takeaway. Usually costs $6.40+, but as it is after 9pm, it will costs me $3.40 after GST. This is because there is 50% off sliced cakes after 9pm. Tastes is too bland and light. I cannot taste the cheese which I usually expect in cheesecake. The strong coffee taste which one usually expect from Tiramisu cake is too light here. The cake is too soft and cannot hold its shape well.

Overall
I will definitely come back again to try other set meals.

Both plates are served with coleslaw and fries. The ribs are very tender with soft bones in them. I like the Rodeo sauce better as it has a smoky taste.

Had a scrumptious breakfast meal as all the ingredients in the breakfast set that I have ordered are all my favourite.The vegetables on the side of the plate are surprisingly not that plain and bland as I expected because they actually cook them together with some sauces.

The environment there is good as well since it's not that noisy despite it's locates just beside the cinema.

Soup is always an item which I will normally ordered when I visit this restaurant. This time round i have tried their cream of mushroom. The portion served was quite generous but I find that the soup texture was abit too diluted and not much mushroom taste can be found in it. Moreover, I also cannot find much of the mushroom slices in it as well. Would be better if they can provide a sliced of garlic bread to go along with it.

This brownie isn't the best of what I had before, maybe due to its portion is too much and too greasy, but the first half of my consumption is really great. The brownie is baked with quite a lot of walnuts which I love it, then topped with the chilling ice cream to give the cold and hot sensation, and spammed with chocolate syrup that almost covered the whole cake.

There's a 50% discount on desserts after 9pm. And cakes cost around $3++. I ordered the brownie cheesecake. The taste was quite average but at $3 a slice, the cake is acceptable.The strawberry milkshake, however, was really good! The consistency of the milkshake was just right and wasn't too thick or too milky. The oreo waffle was also good. When it is served, the waffle was still warm with an ice cream on top.

The oreo waffle was also good. When it is served, the waffle was still warm with an ice cream on top. Do share this as it might be a lot for just one person to finish. The 50% discount does not include waffles, so you can try it at any time of the day!

i love going to cafe cartel for their cakes as they have the half price promotion after 9pm. the cakes are all quite nice, i love the hazelnut chocolate cake and chocolate banana cake the most. the chocolate taste is very rich, and the cake base is soft and fine, the cream is not too greasy. for the american cheese cake, the cake is also fine and smooth, but the base is a bit course, and i feel greasy eating the whole piece alone.
