The Penny Drop (Revisited-Invited)

Wednesday, October 24, 2018 Sharon Halim 0 Comments

The last time I went to The Penny Drop it was a blast. Everything was so beautifully presented as well as delicious. Not only that, the service was on point and the spaciness of the place with the salmon hue fit into my description of an attractive cafe any day.  I went back to my second invitation and this time is on a busy Saturday. At first they wanna give us a table at the high tables that does not fit the high chair really well than finally after a while, they move us to a better suiting table.

I got $100 voucher which is pretty generous for a cafe and I love that. It means they appreciate my work and wants me to display more of their product which is good for their advantage. Mr.Ssรคam Benedict - Fried soft shell crab, spring onion pancakes, beanshoot salad, poached eggs with kimchi hollandaise ($21). This was my favourite out of all four dish of the day. The super crispy soft shell crab is addictive with thin spring onion pancakes and delicious kimchi hollandaise. This dish feels lighter than regular benedict dish and I like it.

The Loaded Chicken Waffle - Fried chicken ribs, pickled vegetable, sweet potato waffle, powdered manuka honey, chipotle aioli ($19). Second favourite of the day. Combination between crispy fired chicken and waffle always tingles my belly. And this elevated by the sweet potato waffle, love it so much. Sweet and give the dish a more modern vibe. I would more of that powdered manuka honey and that chipotle aioli to tie in the dish even more tightly.

Special of the day; Smoked Salmon Risotto - king prawn, rocket, fennel, okra, parmesan ($23) and Raspberry Bread - orange blossom caramel, toasted almond, vanilla ice cream, pistachio fairy floss ($14). Both of the specials falls flat, the risotto was pretty blend and the portions was pretty small as well but the prawn is a nice additional to it. The raspberry bread was served room temperature that I reckoned better if it's serve hot.
