X and I were really honoured and blessed to have the opportunity to dine at The Mayor Of Tiny Town (MOTT). MOTT is a very new cafe that is only a month old. It is located at Cantonment Road along the pretty shophouses. Parking is readily available in The Pinnacle or along the streets behind the building.
We met the two cheerful owners of MOTT and they were really friendly and nice! Ting Feng sat down with us and entertained our relentless questions haha. We were really intrigued by the unique name of the cafe and of course we had to know how this name came about! Turns out that it's kind of an inside joke so only the owners really know the meaning to it haha. Ting Feng went through the extensive menu with us and there were just too many goodies to choose from so we decided to have him make the choice for us while we kicked back and relaxed haha. The cafe is designed by Pei Shi, the other owner, and it is simple, yet pretty. The cafe is cozy and is decorated with cute and unique ornaments purchased from all over the world
Half of the menu
Ting Feng told us that they wanted waffles to be their specialty and highlight. X and I were wondering why waffles? Until we learnt that Pei Shi loves waffles and also later on, we realised that their waffles are phenomenal.
MOTT has a large selection of Gryphon tea and also their chocolate and coffee are unique and special. Their hot chocolate is from UK and it's organic while their coffee beans are 100% Arabica and are freshly roasted in Singapore
Hot Chocolate - $4.50
Green and Black's organic hot chocolate with frothed fresh milk
The hot chocolate was of optimal thickness and it carried a slight hint of sweetness. This is unlike the usual chocolate which is either very sweet, very milky or too thick. This was in every way, a perfect cup of chocolate for me. Initially I thought it wasn't sweet enough, but the subtle hint of sweetness which kicked in a little after the chocolate proved me wrong.
Also, have you seen the cup??? It's too cute!
Fragrant and refreshing
Aglio Olio and Mushroom - $12.90
The spaghetti was al dente and was very well prepared. The spaghetti carried the aroma and taste of the mushrooms. X and I both liked it alot. But X definitely liked it more than I did. He said he will come back just for the aglio olio. I think Ting Feng was a little stunned by his comment hahaha
Scrambling Eggs - $14.90
The two slices of bread were nicely toasted. Fluffy scrambled eggs, with fat pieces of smoked salmon atop crisp toast, what more can one ask for? The tomatoes were juicy and sweet. X said they didn't have the "raw green" taste. I don't really know what he's saying because I don't eat vegetables but I hope you guys understand hahaha
Cute plate for our waffle!
Vanilla and Cinnamon Apple Waffle - $10.90
This waffle really wowed me. I have eaten many waffles but none tasted like this. The waffle batter is made freshly by the chef daily and he definitely has a secret recipe! The waffle was extremely fragrant, crisp on the out and soft on the inside. It's a little chewy and definitely uniquely different from any other waffle! I think I said "I really like the waffle" at least 5 times. The cinnamon apples were sweet and delicious and really complemented the waffle. It was really pretty damn incredible. The icecream, however, was a letdown and can certainly be improved
Chocolate fudge cake with a Gryphon tea set - $8.90
Chocolate fudge cake, with cranberries that were soaked in red wine and a biscuit centre.
The chocolate was thick and smooth. The alcohol infused cranberries provided a bitter edge to the cake which was delightful. Chocolate lovers will like this bitter-sweet combination together with the crushed biscuits. The slice of cake was too huge and we couldn't finish it haha. Recommended for sharing!
Mayor's Mischief - $14.90
Cotton candy, vanilla icecream, mixed nuts and expresso
When this first arrived, I was really surprised! I've never seen cotton candy paired with affogato before! And doesn't this look cute!
I had no idea how to eat it. Should we eat the cotton candy first or what? Haha Ting Feng then told us to pour the expresso on the cotton candy. The expresso melted the cotton candy which became pieces of hard candied sugar which we liked. Nuts and affogato can never go wrong! There was, however, too much expresso and again, the icecream can be improved. Other than that, this was fascinating and very special!
We had a long chat after our awesome lunch with Ting Feng. He told us that MOTT has a weekday lunch set that costs $14.90 which includes a soup, a main course and a drink. Our eyes widened and my jaw dropped. $14.90 seriously???? I must go for lunch there on a weekday sometime soon!!! The cafe started to fill up as we were there. It was almost full house when we were ready to go. We had only tried a few items from MOTT but they are good reasons to why we will definitely return. Can't wait to try the famous blue salmon and fish and chips! Also, Ting Feng alerted us about their BEST dishes that haven't been included in their menu yet. They already have such an impressive menu and yet, the most impressive items are not even inside. I'm sure MOTT will be really famous and packed soon. Also, the staff are so polite! Our waiter was very attentive and courteous. X and I were observing how he was to the other customers and he really is the kind of staff that every restaurant owner will want. I was saying that I'd steal him if I had a cafe hahaha kiddingggg
Can't wait to bring our friends to MOTT so we can try many many dishes! I already know what I want to have! Blue salmon!
Do let us know what you think about MOTT!
Thank you Ting Feng and Pei Shi for having us, and for a pleasant afternoon filled with yummy food [:
