Tonight I am invited by OpenRice to a food tasting sessions at De’Pop Culture. The cafe is located at one end of a row of shophouses. The cafe is quite pop out from the rest with its rainbow coloured signage. Inside the cafe is decorated in bright yellow and red, with pop arts on the walls. Music from a pair of cute little speakers filled the room.
There is also cozy area with sofa, bean bag and magazines to relax with.
Delicious and yummy looking desserts filled the display shelf.
Through the staff’s recommendation for drinks, we have Kiwi Italian Soda ($4.90), Passionfruit Italian Soda ($4.90), Red Raspberry Italian Soda ($4.90) and Blue Raspberry Italian Soda ($4.90). Very colourful looking drinks, but tastes simply like normal soda drinks.
Truffle Fries ($7.90)
Although there is barely any truffle oil smell, but one can taste its distinct taste with the soft and crispy fries.
Bacon Surprise ($10.90)
The bacons are shaped into cups, holding scrambled eggs, fried egg and sauteed mushroom. It is served with a side salad in Japanese style sesame dressing.
De’Pop Breakfast Platter (for 2) ($28.90)
Toasted brioche, grilled tomatoes, sauteed mushrooms, streaky bacon, scrambled eggs, hashbrown, baked beans and bratwurst sausage.
The meal is served on a Lazy Susan, where one can rotate around to try around. It is actually big breakfast with everything in it. Huge serving, which is a good choice for sharing.
Crab and the Dog ($15.90)
Italian pork sausage served in a bun drizzled with spicy chilli crab sauce and sides of fries and salad.
At first look, I have thought that it is a hotdog, topped with sambal sauce. Although the sauce is spicy, it is lacking of the egg flower characteristics which is usually found in chilli crab sauce.
Black Pepper Crab Spaghetti ($14.90)
Spaghetti served with mushroom, crab meat and chef’s special black pepper sauce.
Chunks of crab meat on top of the black coloured spaghetti, it tastes strongly peppery, although I would prefer it with a hint of sweetness.
French Toast feat. Banana-tella ($11.90)
Thick toast with caramelized bananas, drizzle of caramel and a dash of hazelnut chocolate.
The thick toast is soft but I would prefer it to be crispy outside. Maybe have it deep fried in a egg batter, similar to the Cha Chaang Teng’s type. The slices of banana do not have well caramelized texture. Maybe it should not be called French Toast at all, since it is not soaked in egg batter and fried.
Waffles Caramel ($11.50)
Buttermilk waffle with granola, whipped cream, salted caramel ice cream and caramel.
The waffle is served hot and crispy on the outside, while soft and fluffly inside. A very well made waffle. Topped with salted caramel ice cream, it is such a super combination that we wipe it clean in no time.
Apple Crumble Pie with ice cream ($11.50)
It is served hot, with soft chunky pieces of flavourful apple inside. Topped with the cold ice cream, it is a heavenly match.
Panna Cotta ($6.90)
A milky and creamy pudding, topped with blueberry and sauce. It tastes thick and rich, which could get a bit jelat after some mouthfuls.
Overall it is yummy meal, especially for its dessert items. Our stomachs are near to bursting out. Thank you OpenRice for the invite.
