So…OZ Specialty Coffee closed down, and there’s a new kid on the block at Upper Thomson road! And gosh. I absolutely love it. Though there are many cafes along the entire stretch and there are no lack of choices, I hadn’t really found one that I had a calling to….till now. I liked One Man Coffee, but it’s a tad too small to stay for long. And I just never really got what the hype was about for Habitat Coffee. Of course, I do still feel very privileged to have all these options around me, but Pacamara Boutique just stole my heart (:
I rarely take photographs of restaurant/cafe interiors but this place is gorgeous!!! I’m selfishly quite reluctant to share this place with all of you but…ah well. Good things are better shared I guess ^^
I was spoilt for choice there, and I really wished we could have ordered more. But that’s just more reasons for me to go back hehe. We chose the Miso glazed Salmon ($22) for our main. Though it’s rather on the pricey side, it made up for it in leaps and bounds in terms of quality. The salmon was beautifully cooked, with a crispy charred skin. It came with an apple fennel salad that was really tasty, and I loved the flavourful miso seasoning for the fish. That smear of pumpkin (at least that’s what I think it is) on the side, perfect!
We couldn’t resist the Salted Caramel Banana French Toast ($16) which sounded so sinfully good. I’m really not a fan of bananas, but in desserts like these, I do think they go together pretty well. The french toast was fluffy, and though not spectacular, was saved by the creamy, gooey salted caramel sauce. The bits of crispy oats added a welcomed crunch to this dish which I really liked too!
