Cant remember if it is seafood chowder or clam chowder soup. Soup base taste sweet and but a pity that it is too watery. There is really quite abit of clam meat and vegetable bits in the soup. A dish that children will love.

 
Chicken is a little tougher and drier done by this branch and taste more blend. Not as tender and savoury as the one done by The Cathay outlet.

 
Lettuce in the salad shd be cut into smaller pieces for consumptions instead of the actual slices size. Sauce is too watery and cannot really coat the vegetables well.

 
Pork Slices is too blend and again, too dry. Portion does not really feed a big eater well.

This outlet obviously has not enough man power to cater for the peak hour such as lunch or dinner crowd. Situated at a corner opposite the 7eleven, the queue for a table eventually leads to blocking the way of the rest of the people visiting the mall when there is not enough help in clearing the tables fast and allowing people to go in. Even when you eventually gets a table, it takes really quite awhile before the servers have time to cater to your need to make an order.

Basically, if you are really thinking of visiting this outlet, I suggest that you pop by before or after peak hour. Unless you really dont mind queuing in a long queue to get a table, and eventually, also queue again to make payment.

Suger overload Cry Sep 25, 2013

This Lemon Tart that my Boy friend got for me is definitely not for those that does not like soury food at all. Not only is it sweet, it is also extremely sourish(or at least for me).

Pros and cons. Sour would wet your appetite more but too sour can also kill your mood for more food i guess.

They also have this brownie which you can literally taste bits of sugar in the cake and honestly, not for the faint hearted. You really need to be a die hard sweet tooth to like all these sugary pastry.

Like I say, if you are not a sweet tooth, the pastries they sell will really not to your liking.

Food at wee hours! Cry Sep 09, 2013

Beef Lagsana

Beef Lagsana

 
If you visit café cartel after 9pm, side dishes/desserts/cakes would be on 50% discount. great place for gathering and after food dessert with friends.

NEVER TRY THE BEEF LASAGNA from the branch in Nex. The amount of salt they use for this dish seems free. salty to an extend that I cant even finish half of the dish. Bad one. meh. not worth a try.

Service seems slow or rather, maybe due to the timing I visit(10+pm), the service attendance seems slacken. And took really their own sweet time to attend to both my friend and I. Bad impression number 2.

Like I say, the only attractive part is the 50% discount for desserts and cakes.

Korean KBB provides not only a range of meat available for BBQ, ranging from chicken to beef and to pork but also a wide spread of selection for soup base ingredient.

If you are a lover of both BBQ steamboat/ Steam boat and Korean food, then this place is for you. This place serves 2 kind of free drinks as well. Limes juice and Rice tea to help ease the greasy feeling after too much of BBQ meat.

The lettuce provided there however is of much smaller size. Harder to wrap, but easier for consumption.

Meat on the other hand is slightly far too sweet and easily gets the jelak feeling if not eaten with lettuce and with the soup.

Personally I would prefer ssikkek BBQ over KBB since ssikkek honestly have a wider range of cook or raw food selection. The only plus point for KBB is only the pot of soup which can aid in clearing the greasy feeling after too much bbq.

venue is rather too cramp and on peak hour, the walking space is rather limited.

Bought groupon and paid $18.90 for Dinner deal.

If you love the concept of starbucks, a place where you can savour on drinks/desserts and have a chitchat session with your friends and families or say, while doing some work with a laptop plucked in, then this place is for you. (except that this place is not very condusive in terms of noise control since everyone is talking at the same time at a small cafe)

Ranging from cone ice-cream, japanese ice-cream dessert, waffles to hot drinks, there bound to have something that you can savour while you sit and have a chat away session.

 
Personally, I think Azuki bean paste(basically mashed red beans) goes best with matcha ice-cream, naturally I picked these desserts as our choice. I picked the one with Mochi while Le sister picked the one that comes with matcha jelly cubes.

In my opinion, the concept of the cafe is better than the desserts provided. Desserts are slightly over-rated for the price we paid. $8.20 each. The disappointment for me comes when the mochi is not chewy at all. Is'nt mochi suppose to be chewy. sad And on the otherhand, the matcha jelly is far too chewy too. Would really prefer the texture to be softer instead of feeling lik agar agar. And the matcha taste is not strong enough. The only compensation is the blend taste of the mochi and matcha jelly win points for neutralising the combination of the ultimate sweet vanilla ice-cream + Azuki bean paste.
