It is the first time I set foot in East Village, a mixed-development project in Simpang Bedok area, where level 1 comprises of retail fronts, and the condo residences are above. There are so many cafes and ice-cream parlours here - the hipsters and cafehoppers are going to have a field day here!
The array of pastries and ice-cream look tempting. If I wasn't about to head for a food tasting session, I would have attacked the Lemon Tart or Rainbow Cake !
*V chose an Affogato (SGD$7.40) - shot of espresso with a huge scoop of ice-cream. She went for pistachio flavour. The ice cream was creamy but not too rich, hence retaining the distinctive flavour of pistachio. It paired off rather well with the aromatic coffee
I had a Chocolate Chips Latte (SGD$5.80) that was prettily decorated, as is the trend these days. The coffee contained strong hints of berries and a little sour overture, but was sweetened beautifully by the chocolate cookies.
The service was good and there was free wi-fi for all, making it a perfect chillout or work cafe. What's best is that they currently have this "2nd cup at 50%" promotion! So, say, if I finish my Chocolate Chips Latte and wish to try their Affogato, I bring my empty cup back to the counter, pay SGD$3.70, and get to enjoy another delicious cup of hot beverage.
What are you waiting for? :)
