After seeing my sister post up photos of waffles at Ice Edge Cafe, I decided to bring my kids there for lunch. Parking was relatively easy as I reached there before lunch time (Ice Edge Cafe opens at 12noon). There are about 20 parallel parking along the road outside Simon Plaza. (I ran out of coupons today and really thankful I managed to find someone who sold me 2 x $0.50 coupon. Thank you!)
The cafe is quite big and spacious, with their own washroom. My kids and I were seated comfortably in a booth. The 1-for-1 lunch deal didn’t really suit me, but I went ahead to order 2 adult meals and 1 kids meal.
This is my Ice Latte Mocha ($6.50) and Jayden’s Ice Chocolate ($6.50)
I think the Ice Chocolate must be very nice, because he finished it even before his food was served. Thankfully they have free flow of iced water near our table.
This is Jayson’s Hot Chocolate ($5.50), which came with 2 pretty heart marshmallows. It went into Jayden’s mouth after I snapped this photo.
Bacon & Ham Tomato Spaghetti – Kids, $9.50
Somehow I was expecting a bigger portion for this price. Didn’t really see much bacon in it. Perhaps it’s just the 2 bigger slice of ham on top.
Fish N Chips – $14.80 (FOC : 1-for-1)
Rather thick and oily coating of skin over the fish. I think a normal kopitiam’s western food will taste better. I removed all the skin and put it aside.
Pork Loin – $18.80
Didn’t really look appetizing, I scooped away all the mashed potatoes and gave it to Jayson. Took a few bites of the vegetable and shared the pork with the kids. I think they need to do something about the plates as well. The edges of the plate were stained. Perhaps time for a change of plates? or some scrubbing?
Mao Shan Wang Lava Cake with Rocher Gelato – $14.80.
I was expecting lots of molten durian paste to flow out. But i think all i got was half a teaspoon worth and it didn’t really taste like Mao Shan Wang durians. Rather disappointed with it. The Rocher Gelato was ok. At least it didn’t melt as fast as the gelato at Pick Me Up.
2 Scoop Gelato Pancake – $16.80
This is the hot favourite. The tiny pancakes are nice. Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Really fun bite-size pancakes for kids. I chose strawberry gelato and rock melon gelato. The rock melon gelato is fantastic! Tasted like the real fruit.
There is no 10% service charge over at Ice Edge, but my table was constantly cleared of plates by non-smiling staff. However, I don’t think I’ll head back for their main food anytime soon, maybe just for their gelato if I’m in the mood.
