Okay so anyway we parked at the public carpark a distance away and walked to Kandahar Street. It was a Sunday so the whole area was pretty crowded. Maison Ikkoku was packed. We were pretty lucky as we grabbed the top spot on the waiting list.
They have a shop upstairs that carries accessories and apparel and so we went to take a look while waiting for our turn
Outdoor seating that nobody wanted to take because it was SO HOT.
White walls and cement floor
Equipment to make coffee
Cute cups sitting in the cupboard
Iced Mocha - $6.50
The coffee was strong and this drink was bitter with a slightly sweet aftertaste. Perfect example of bittersweet! X really liked it haha
Hot Chocolate - $6
This was rich and good! Definitely one of the better hot chocolates!
We waited about 40 minutes for our food to arrive.
Break of Dawn - $18.90
Port bratwurst, crispy smoked bacon, truss cherry tomatoes, sauteed asparagus, sunny side up, mixed greens with japanese peanut vinaigrette.
served with sourdough toast
The portion is quite huge. X couldn't stop praising the vegetables. He said "the veggie is really good!" at least three times. Haha I guess the peanut vinaigrette made it really delicious. The yolks of the sunny side-ups were runny and it was simple joy spreading the yolk over the buttered sour dough bread. I liked the pork bratwurst. It was tasty and juicy. However, the bacon was too hard and too crispy that it tasted a little burnt. It was like eating crackers. The bacon was left pretty untouched. Everything else went into our happy stomachs!
Salmon Florentine - $16.90
Toasted English muffins, Norwegian smoked salmon, poached eggs, home made hollandaise, sauteed asparagus.
See the smiley face? Haha
The hollandaise had a little chilli powder sprinkled on them. This made the hollandaise a little spicy, and tastier. The hollandaise was thick and full of flavour. The eggs were perfect and together with the yummy hollandaise, fresh salmon and toasted muffin, this dish was a winner! X said the asparagus was super nice like at least three times too. Hahaha. He's in love with their veggie.
We wanted to try their kong bak bao but they were out of it at around 12 plus. Must be really good!
We also wanted to try their dessert but we saved our stomachs for a buffet. Although food takes a little too long to be served but the staff took effort to inform us about the status of our food and they were pretty warm and nice. Haha we'll definitely be back for more! I really wanna try the kong bak bao haha
