A cuppa joe and delicious waffle
A few friends raved about this new coffee place just opened a couple of months back in Evan’s Lodge - a pretty secluded area within the Bukit Timah enclave. So after a short meetup with some photographers on Saturday afternoon (more stories on that soon), a few of us decided to check this place out.
The last time I came to Evan’s Lodge was more or less 1.5 years back when Hatched was the talk of the town for it’s all day breakfast menu. But since the place wasn’t commuter friendly, I never came back until yesterday.
While the food items might be limited here at Assembly coffee, they take pride in their coffee and strive to serve you the best in town. I settled for a cup of mocha while both my friends - a hot latte and iced mocha respectively. For I am not a coffee connoisseur, I can’t really describe in detailed about my cuppa but what I can say is the coffee wasn’t too strong (which is to my liking) and I can taste the rich chocolate aroma in it. Best thing was, I did not experience any gastric or bloating feeling after.
Since it was almost dinner time, we did not want to order anything heavy and settled for a salted caramel waffle together with a chocolate cake to share. You can’t go wrong with anything “salted caramel”. Just look at the photogenic waffle above.
I am definitely coming back for more. Probably on weekends for breakfast after a good morning jog at the Botanical gardens nearby.
