Nestled within the enclave of Stars at Kovan, See You Caffe is the latest addition in the neighbourhood, joining some of the neighbours in the vicinity like SugarTree Gelato, Chiksoo, WAWA Seafood, Tie Fun Wan and Sweet Thoughts by M.O.D.
They serve a small menu of Asian & Western fusion delights, few a few options available on a daily rotating basis.
While their website menu promises a vast range of western offerings, the only food options available were such as Curry Chicken, Beef Rendang and Carbonara during my point of visit.
I opted for the Beef Rendang with Pasta Set ($11.90) which came with a choice of selected beverage like coffee or tea. Quite a good deal.
The beef rendang was packed filled with spices and coconut milk flavour, infused thoroughly into the chunks of meat.
My only qualm is that I would generally prefer beef to be slightly tender rather than being overly-cooked, which led to the tougher meat texture.
There was a rather wide selection of bakes and desserts available on the display cabinet like Butter Croissant ($4.50), Double Chocolate Muffin ($3.90) and Matcha Azuki Cake ($4.90), some of them supplier sourced.
From their homemade selection, what caught my attention was the Prune Kueh Lapis ($6.90) and Matcha Burnt Cheesecake ($4.90).
What I liked about their Kueh Lapis was its buttery flavour of the sponge, complemented with uniformly layered with sweet prunes embedded within.
Their burnt cheesecake, while rich and creamy, would probably require a bit of fine-tuning to achieve the molten core texture.
I have had quite a handful of Basque Burnt Cheesecake in Singapore and the texture of this… tasted closer to a regular cheesecake.
From their beverage section, other than regular coffee and tea suspects, there is a category of unique concocted offerings such as Brown Sugar Latte ($5), Honeycomb Dalgona ($6.50) and Vienna Coffee ($6.50).
Being adventurous, I went with the Americano Float ($6.50) which has a scoop of ice cream dunked into iced black coffee.
Maybe it was my choice of ice cream flavour, or maybe it was the concoction. But I think I would gladly stick to my Iced Americano next time.
By the way, if you are coming along the main road, there could be a chance of walking pass the store without knowing as the store has reflective mirror surface from its exterior while its visible signage is faced within the enclave.
Do keep your eyes peeled for its blade signage or it will literally become see you “later”.
