Fish and Chip

The fish and chips is one of the hot selling items here, the golden-brown beer battered fish were very crispy and fragrant outside and retained the tenderness of the meat, the crackling sound from the battered coating from the bites were a music to the ears, You can be hooked on the very first bite, all of us were trying to salvage every little batter crumbs left in the box just to enjoy the additive taste and we indeed called for repeat order just to satisfy the craving.

Fish and Chip

French fries were good too for the taste and texture and went well with the Citrus Thai Chili dipping sauce; there are 5 types of fish available: Barramundi, Dory, Haddock, Pollock, and Snapper. (4.0/5.0)

Poofy – Japanese souffle pancakes by Riz Labo Kitchen ($14.0)

Poofy – Japanese souffle pancakes

Made from the quality ingredients and served with vanilla Chantilly cream, maple syrup and fresh strawberries and blueberries, the Poofy pancakes were wobbling when touch, pancake was done beautifully with its delicately soft, eggy and light texture, giving the perfect luscious taste in every bite with the nice sweet succulent taste. (4.5/5.0)

Lazy Loaf

The bakery serves freshly in-house baked loaves and breads using only the basic premium ingredients to create the lovely bites. Give it a try.
