Brew Maison – Japanese Korean Café with 3D Latte Art
With many cafes popping up all around Singapore, some are bringing it to the next level – with 3D latte art, all cutesy and delightfully delicious. Time to whip out your cameras. (Read: 20 New Cafes In Singapore )
Brew Maison is such a pretty little place, said to be inspired by both Japanese and Korean cafes. Kawaii ne! Gwi yeo weo! Perhaps we have been seeing so many cafes with similar industrial grey walls and hanging bicycles, this girly space looks set to attract a different crowd.
This café, located opposite Singapore Chinese Girls Schools at Alocassia Apartments may be hard to find, but at least there is free complimentary parking for the first hour. SCGS teachers, you now know where to get more caffeine for your grading.
The kitchen serves affordable breakfast, hot food, cakes and drinks that introduce Japanese and Korean flavours using fresh ingredients.
Other items on menu: mix and match your rice, pasta, wraps and breads with options of meats and sauces. Prices are pretty affordable, with most of the mains below $10.
My Pork Pasta tasted suspiciously Korean. It’s so weird that I liked it. Imagine one of those spicy red ‘gochujang’ sauce over spaghetti, becoming part savoury and part sweetish. The dish won’t blow you away, but at least it’s interesting enough. (Warning: if you sit near the kitchen, you DO smell the sauce or like the sauce.)
I questioned about the Tori Bites ($6), which the cashier explained was “chicken nuggets. And we make them ourselves.” All right, score points for home-made nuggets. Turned out to be not bad, tender bites tipped in what it seems like Japanese-curry sauce.
Some of the people obviously come for their 3D coffee art. Sometimes you get a Disney character. But the artist may not be in all the time, so check their facebook for updates.
Coffee is on the lighter side. For those caffeine intolerant, their Taro Latte ($4.50) is a warm-your-heart drink. It’s cliché, but I am going to say it anyway… SO CUTE!
