Urban Provedore has been open for many years, I still remember when it's first open. A trendy modern cafe with large open window that looks so attractive from the outside. Honestly, I still love their interior design.  This is my first invite to Urban Provedore and my first husband first time visiting the cafe.

When we arrived, it happened again. There's almost always problem with reservation for bloggers, that's why I always keep the conversation trails for the cafe manager to see just in case there's problem. There was a miscommunications between the cafe and marketing agent, according to the cafe manager, they already told them that they do not want bloggers on Saturday cause it's busy. Understandable really, but on the other hand, the marketing agent already confirm the reservation with me. Anyway, like many other times. I ended up getting a table in the end, even though I have to wait for quite a bit cause they are so busy.

Mushroom Omelette - fior di latte, truffle, pumpkin loaf ($20).Ths dish lack the usual fluffy runniness of omelette, this is closer to Asian pan fried egg omelette. I don't mind it honestly. Love the aromatic truffle aroma. Fior di latte is a nice addition to the dish.

Open Crumpet - prosciutto crudo, halloumi, wild rocket, fried egg, smoked relish ($16). This is the best dish out of everything I ordered. Perfect combination of halloumi, prosciuto and fried egg topped with relish. I do wish the relish is a bit smokier than it would elevate the dish even more. But all the high quality ingredients in the dish really shine.

Souffle Waffles - roasted rhubarb, apple, pear, vanilla cream, cocoa, nut oil ($19). I don't understand the souffle part of the waffles, cause I don't really get any elements of souffle in there. But, the waffle is pretty fluffy and love the cooked fruits in the dish so much. Soury rhubarbs and aromatic apples as well as pear. Yum! Perfect ending with creamy rich vanilla cream and a touch of bitter cocoa on the bottom.
